Well, I just went to Next Level Burger for the first time – where one can enjoy a delicious burger and a to-die-for shake that are all plant-based (and not-“Frankenmeaty” at all). Proof positive that it is entirely possible to be, as they proudly say in Oregon, a fat vegan. “As long as we don’t have any kind of representation…

Alright it’s the weekend, the clocks are going forward, I’ve made a big pot of jambalaya to make up for the mostly vegan week I’ve had, the weather is supposed to be sunny and in the LOW 60’s this weekend, meeting with a prospective client this coming week, and my husband says he has a surprise outing for us on…

Stuff that’s been rolling around in my own head this past week… Eggs + Souffles + Science = Awesome. Infertility + Elderly Women + Friendship = The Sisterhood of Grief at All Ages. Art + #MeToo + Sports Illustrated = A Step in the Right Direction. More Guns + Women + Rapists = Jessica Valenti calls out more NRA Bullshit.…

Gee, thanks Dr Google!

So, seriously, I’ve often taken health advice from the internet with a grain of salt, but over the past 5 or 6 years, I’ve learned more from health/medical websites than I have from nearly all of my doctors and naturopaths combined. Here’s a few examples of the shit care we’ve received over the years that often have pushed me to…

Week in Pictures

Oh happy day! The crazy late-winter snow did not stop our manzanita (which we’ve potted up as this baby is definitely coming with us!) from its blossoming. LOVE. And speaking of pretty things, husband surprised me with these 🙂 STOKED! We got four boxes of 24″ square carpet tiles for the basement – no glue required, they just lock together…

Yeah, I got stuff on my mind, y’all…get ready. Billy Graham was a homophobe, a sexist, an anti-Semite, and a fundamentalist religious prick who spoke down to those who dared not embrace his cultish take on spirituality. And now he’s dead. Good fucking riddance. Like HELL was he ‘America’s pastor’. Fuck that shit, that man never spoke for me. Minnie…

Friday Friday Friday! I can’t believe we’re midmonth and after the usual “unseasonably mild” week or two, it’s getting ready to be fucking cold. As in, dammit I got fooled again and had just brought in the ducks’ heated bucket into the garage and now it’s supposed to get into the low 20’s this weekend! D’oh! Anyhoo… So my husband…

We are currently snacking on these awesome savory masa-polenta muffins. Sprinkled some ground pasilla in it and chopped lardo and they’re, well, heaven. Dang, February is full steam ahead. With new coaching client work with two brilliant women in two very different career paths, matched with crazy mild temperatures here in the Rose City, I’m feeling pretty optimistic… * A…

5 Things to Stop Doing – NOW!

A few months ago, I was mentioning to a hiring manager – a CLIENT – over the phone that I would be out of the office for several days because we were celebrating my husband’s 50th birthday. He then actually had the nerve to “joke” with me that my husband was “robbing the cradle”, and when I calmly mentioned that…

Eco-licious: Bring it on, 2018…

I don’t know about you but I am SO glad last year has been put to rest! Hope you all had a lovely new year, whether you spent it in your PJs or out on the town, and that 2018 brings good things and a helluva lot more hope than 2017 did. Here are a few things that brought me…
