Spring sprang

      No Comments on Spring sprang

It’s obvious that Sacramento wants me to leave. It was 85 degrees today. What the hell? It’s snowing in a part of the country. Did you know that? Here I am sweating in early April. I hate sweating. One of the things I’m looking forward to is not being in an area of the country when it’s hot for a… Read more »

Total Bunk: An Open Letter to Susan A. Patton

Flabbergasted. At first, when I heard about what you wrote in the Princetonean, I thought, “That has to be a joke. No woman with half of a brain and any sense of self-esteem would say those stupid things.” Seeing no reference to The Onion, I grew angry. There are so many things wrong with what you wrote. I’m not even… Read more »

Marriage Equality: Grow up, people.

      2 Comments on Marriage Equality: Grow up, people.

It baffles me that people are so weirded out about letting gays and lesbians get married. Their arguments are ridiculous and illogical. Today I saw a new one. If you want to let everyone get married, then brothers and sisters could marry each other. First of all, gross. Second of all, that’s a genetic time bomb waiting to go off…. Read more »

Coffee.  I’m an addict.  I cannot go without it.  My needs are simple.  One very strong cup each morning. Part of me loathes going to coffee shops or cafes, if you will.  I don’t understand these people whose coffee order involves a 10 minute dissertation to a barista.  You’re not a real coffee drinker.  Even when I’m splurging on a… Read more »

Damn you, DST!

It’s that time of year again. You know, when you time travel during the night in order to accommodate someone’s idea that time needs to be saved. I have never liked this change. Even as a kid, I was annoyed by it. So what if I get an extra hour of sleep one Sunday in October (now November), I loose… Read more »

Singles: Not Doomed

      No Comments on Singles: Not Doomed

The other day I got a Google Alert about “dating in Sacramento.” The local Fox affiliate did a piece called Dating in Sacramento, Are Singles Doomed? Instantly, I was pissed off. It wasn’t because the folks at Fox40 didn’t ask a Sacramento dating blogger for her opinion after documenting years in the local dating scene…it was because of this thought… Read more »

In other news, BORING

      2 Comments on In other news, BORING

Dear Sacramento, Aren’t you sick of hearing this crap about the Sacramento Kings?  Since I moved to Sacramento in 2005 they have had one foot out the door.  Sorry, it was early 2006 when the “we’re going to Disneyland!” rumors started.  OK, not Disneyland proper, but Disneyland adjacent-ish, also known as Anaheim. Would someone tell the Mayor that enough is… Read more »
