Is it just me, or is it crazy out there lately?

Yes, I know astrology is pretty much hokum, but I really have no other way to explain the crazy crap that’s been happening lately. First a freaking train crashes in Canada practically blowing up a whole town…OK, maybe just a very large chunk of it, still…awful.  And why did this happen?  It looks like someone forgot to check the breaks. … Read more »

Big Relationship Step: Meeting the Parents

In this day and age of seemingly few relationship traditions, why is meeting the parents still such a big deal? I’m a grown up who makes my own destiny, right?

Today I had an appointment downtown in Saint Paul.  The lights weren’t much brighter there because it was the middle of the day. And I certainly didn’t forget all my troubles or cares.

Yes, it’s slightly worrisome, but I have a lot of beginnings to focus on now. Well, I have… Read more »

“That will change…”  I have heard this and other comments about my burgeoning relationship that are clearly a reflection of the talker’s own unhappiness with their relationship. I have heard too many damn people try to tell me that I am going to fall into traditional roles in my relationship.  Apparently, these people know me and my boyfriend better than… Read more »

Mixing it up with some Sacramento Bloggers

You would think that a beer crazy town like Sacramento would have a plethora of German themed bars or beirhalls if you will. As far as I know, LowBrau is the only one. And while I was disappointed that there was no oompa-like polka music to be heard, it paled in comparison to the pleasure I got from the delicious… Read more »
