Pay Day!

Explore More Issues Here:

1)  Line of Propriety

2)  Sunburn stuff

3)  Bad hair day means good writing day!

4)  Bragging?  Guilty.  YOU WOULD TOO!

Oh, and by the way, I was singing a version of a John Mayer song (SHOCKING, right?)….

Lyrics here. 

The song is VERY interesting.  The melody/guitar itself is hauntingly beautiful, but the words are contradicting the story-teller’s true convictions (unreliable narrators are FASCINATING).  You see, Johnny is lonely and trying to convince himself that he can engage in self-destructive behaviors (drugs, women, etc.) and it won’t effect him.  Sad.

Have done my own version of “Who Says.”  And I will DEFINITELY include it soon…

But Back to the Benjamins:

Laughing all the way to the bank…

PS.  The check wasn’t for a ton.  And also it will not even begin to cover the costs of medical expenses I will incur from the pending thunderbolt of blasphemy I will shortly receive due to my comparing myself to Brad Paisley.

I don’t need (to be) no doctor

to have good bedside manner!

Moral of the story:  no matter your profession, vocation, hobby that is feeding your soul, you can (and MUST!) have people skillz, ya’ll!

PS.  Writing “moral of the story” is one of the WORST things a writer can do.  Almost as bad as having a post-script…

I’d rather be HAPPY than CLEAR…

 (by a TON, by the way)

PS.  As of a few years ago, it is no longer prescription so it’s a lil’ cheaper. SAWEEEEEET!  This song is what Allegra can say to my summer hay-fever.

PPS.  ALLEGRA makes ALLERGIES happy (or unhappy, I guess)!  WOW!  Just noticed that.  COOL!

GO WRITE YOUR OWN!

I do love my readers, but don’t just be readers, be livers too.  Like someone who lives, not like liver and onions or the organ that secretes bile…

“I trust your judgment”

Screen shot 2013-09-03 at 3.17.39 PM

is one of the greatest compliments I’ve ever received.  And within the past few days, I’ve heard it THRICE!  As a friend, woman, writer, Christian, Latter-day Saint, and all the other things I am, I will do my very best to live up to that trust.  And though your literal life is not in my hands (not in the medical field like Sam, Maizy, and Drew), I still consider it a very sacred responsibility.  So thanks…

“You could always just replace my birth control pills with tic-tacs.”

Thought up this line a few years ago.   I will use it in one of the following 2 situations:

A)  my husband wants kids before I do….

B)  I  sell it to a screenwriter who writes it into a script where the main character (who may or may not be played by me)’s husband wants kids before she does.

Considering the fact that my clock is ticking, option B is looking like it’s gonna win out.  Hollywood, any takers?

“C[reativ]ITY NEVER SLEEPS, BETTER SLIP YOU AN AMBIEN!”

When you are so inspired that you have a hard time sleeping, (particularly if you live in the booming metropolis of Provo, which is basically the same thing as New York) it might be time for a sedative.”

Lyrics here. 

#always consult your doctor first 🙂

#never share meds….

#inspiration can be inconvenient

#this song is a literary gem, teachers take note

Mistaken Identity

A few weeks ago I went on a walk and met a man with a beautiful dog named Pumpkin (names have been changed to protect the innocent canine). We talked for a bit and the man told me how she was a wonderful friend and that he enjoyed and needed her companionship. I sat and petted and played with the dog. I’m no veterinarian, but it became increasingly clear to me that “she” was certainly NOT a “she,” if you get my drift.  I considered telling the man, but I didn’t have the heart.

My Shadow Days are Over Now.

9 months ago I was in a deep, dark black hole. 

Lyrics here. 

I’m a good girl with a good heart.

Had a tough time.  Got a rough start.

But my shadow days are over now.

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I fear no evil, for thou art with me.

~Psalm 23:4

Core Beliefs:  Christ, expression, beauty, kindness

(Even if you don’t like John Mayer or my taste in music, just listen to that song!!!)

Readers: If you are in a dark shadow of any kind,

there just might be light at the end of the tunnel.

Bruxism.

Yeah, I hadn’t heard of it either.  It’s just a fancy word for grinding your teeth.  My dentist says I grind, so I (should) wear these at night to help keep my pearly whites intact.   ImageI

I apologize for the immodesty, but I was alone in my room.  Plus you know my shoulders kinda make you hot and bothered.  #inappropriate  #couldbeworse

Core Beliefs:  Beauty (kinda a twist on this one), expression, humor

The Yellow Ipad

I wish the woman in “The Yellow Wallpaper” had an Ipad.  It would have made it easier to hide her writing.  And she probably could have read all about postnatal psychosis and learned what good drugs could have helped her feel better.  Mental illness is real.  But so is help.
