Something Funny

Here's a joke for you: "Why is a computer so smart? It listens to its Motherboard!" *** OK, so I am notorious for being terrible at telling jokes. Don't get me wrong; I think that I am FUNNY AF. I just can't seem to do the whole "What is the definition of a sweater?" thing. See? Even that made no sense. (Just ...

a rose

"There is a rose and it reminds me of you," he said. We were in the middle of a conversation, but he interrupted the rhythm of the words that were dancing from our tongues. "What do you mean?" I asked. "I am looking outside at the garden and I see a rose on the rose bush and it reminds ...

DIRTY dancing. In all seriousness, the collage above shows ...

“You’ll Be Back”

Last summer, it was all about the music. In kid world, it was all about Hamilton. My son, in particular, was obsessed with the soundtrack and we had to play "You'll Be Back" on repeat. And by "had to" I mean that I was loving the fact that my kids were getting into musical theatre. Now, it's ...

Bird on the wire

"But I swear by this song" -Leonard Cohen, Bird on the Wire (Side Note: In searching back through the archives of this blog, I am astounded to see that I have only referenced Leonard Cohen once here, but I know that he has had a much larger presence on my Instagram page.

Here is what has been going on and why ...
