The phone rings on a Thursday afternoon, right in the middle of a thought. Pop goes that thought, never to be had again.

The last few months have been tough ones for my kitchen appliances. So tough, in fact, that it seems they made a suicide pact.

Easter is almost here. And if you've been keeping Lent, or are otherwise anxious to tuck into a pan of chocolate hot cross buns, you'd do better to keep track of the ecclesiastical, rather than the astronomical, moon.

Kids’ night was interesting

One of two things happen when little kids are left at home with the babysitter.

In about a minute, someone's going to tell me that it's wrong to put coffee in the water bottle holder of my elliptical trainer. But I say, better there than on the coffee table while I sink into the couch for a quick 20 minutes in front of the TV.

Used Valentine’s Day to scary away sloguary

By official proclamation, January and February have henceforth been renamed 1st and 2nd Sloguary. Please adjust your calendars accordingly.

This year I’m going to exercise five days a week, eat broccoli instead of bacon, add a spoonful of bran to everything bran-able, go on a cleanse, get my vitamins from food instead of bottles, try a new vegetable every week and lose the pounds that keep finding me.

Calamari Cure

In my new Christmas slippers, I padded around the house, unknowingly leaving behind a trail of tiny circles.

It was beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. For one, a single delinquent bulb on my string of tree lights has fritzed out the entire strand. For two, I wascso far behind on my Christmas baking that only a squad of cookie cutter elves could have helped me get caught up.

Coming in from the cold is a very good thing

It began as any holiday road trip through the mountains. Along the way, we drove into freezing rain, compact snow, slush.
