I live in a small town in northern California where I torment my neighbors by being an atheist, by being tall with dark brown skin with naturally big lips, by having a much younger white husband, and by not belonging to a bowling team or miniature golf club. I like traveling to countries where mega malls aren’t vacation destinations and where politicians don’t resign or get impeached from office because of “unauthorized” sexual encounters with adults stupid enough to fuck a politician. I write stories I cannot openly distribute in America for fear of vandalism and death threats from people whose god teaches them to love their neighbors. I love books, art, hairy chests, chocolate anything, greens and cornbread, dogs, cats, small children, clowns, and train rides. I collect old cookbooks, but am particularly fond of those containing unappetizing pictures.

What I’ll Pray For

As soon as someone proves the existence of god and proves he/she/it answers prayers, I’m going to pray I win millions of dollars in a super lottery and that my vagina self rejuvenates. Of course, If my prayer to win the money works then the prayers of all others wanting to win the lottery will [...]

There Are Other Things To Do

Hubby and I hauled our asses away from our home and went to Berkeley this past Sunday. We’d hope to find a few reasonably priced mid-century pieces. I love furniture from that era, especially desks, hutches and credenzas, and hoped to  have found something that would fit into our small living room and be within [...]

What Does It Mean?

I’ve been following the daily Facebook antics of my self-absorbed, bad-ass young relative. I’m fascinated and often puzzled by what and how much she reveals of herself online, so I felt compelled to write something about her. Many times She has left a portion of Her questionable income in the hands of beauty supply owners; [...]

Please God, Will You Do This For Me?

Dear God, Please bring down the murder rate of young men in St Louis; Oakland, Calif; New Orleans, LA; Detroit, Mich;  Richmond, CA;  Baltimore, MA, to anywhere from 0 to 20 for one just one year…oh wait, you don’t grant that type of request…ever. Okay, how about this: please God, make most of the people [...]

2nd Grade Level Adults

So sad that many on “my Facebook” page can’t read nor write above a 2nd grade level.  Some believe they’re excluded from the best jobs because their skin is dark. Perhaps that is the case…sometimes.  But more often than not their lack of education is blocking their access to gainful employment. For example, they see [...]

RIDING AMTRAK

I travel about 70 or so miles by train about once a month to visit my son and his family. On my most recent trip the following messages were delivered by the conductor via the on-board intercom. Please sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. “Do You Have a Ticket”? “We will be collecting tickets [...]

Poop Town

I moved to this shitty little town about 10 years ago because I wanted to get away from the big city bullshit…to escape the frequent sounds of emergency vehicle and police sirens, honking horns, and passing motor vehicles emitting  boom-booming-bone-rattling rap music. I wanted to get away from the dirty, crowded streets, buses and  hoards [...]

The Cat’s Gift

While reading the posts of young women on Facebook, many of whom are related to me—and who are in the habit spreading their legs for men who’d qualify for “The World’s Most Ineligible Bachelors Contest”, if there were such a thing— I’m reminded of a conversation I had some time ago with an acquaintance of [...]
