  • ADVENTURES WITH A (DYING) DOG

    1.21.15-I-Took-My-Dying-Dog-on-a-Bucket-List-Adventure1-590x442

    This one made me weepy this morning. Girl finds out her bestfriend and roommate -- a 160-lb English Mastiff has terminal bone cancer and only has a few months to live. So armed with a bucket list of adventures she would like to share with her dog, they go off on canoe rides, road trips, visits to both busy spots and quiet spaces and, finally, spend a last day together by the ocean in Maine, where she finally finds peace and acceptance. This is real love, people.
  • THE HEALING POWERS OF KEEPING A JOURNAL

    N-JOURNALING-large570

    I still keep a journal despite having a blog. No matter how spill-all-my-guts-out open I may seem, there are many things I do and think that I'll just never tell. I've always thought it kept me sane to be able to express myself without fear of being censored or criticized. Whenever I pick up an old journal, even one from my 13-year-old self I realize that as much as I've changed so much is still the same. I just know how to dodge bullets faster and better.

  • WRITING YOUR WAY TO HAPPINESS

    20WELL-articleLarge

    Which is why I've decided to keep this blog around, at least for a little while longer. I've always picked up a pen (or sat in front of a keyboard) any time I needed to make sense of my world; writing allows me to get into my head and get all my thoughts out without having to worry about how ridiculous I sound (that's where the editing comes in).

  • HOW TO BECOME A WRITER
    This was lovely. The post is by a novelist who was asked how to encourage a young writer. It sounds eerily like the story of my life -- now all I need is to keep reading and keep writing (and, okay, start submitting). From: M Molly Backes' blog, 07/12/11
  • THE "PERFECT" FEMALE BODY

    Greatist_body

    Every day at work I see all kinds of female bodies: athletic, boyish, curvy, voluptuous, natural, enhanced, preteen, post-baby, postmenopausal -- thousands of different bodies I've seen up close and personal in my lifetime. This infographic shows that the description of the ideal female body changes every decade or so, going back hundreds of years. I hope that soon we define the "perfect" body as one that is simply healthy and functioning; that what matters is that we're comfortable in our own skin. From: Greatist, 01/15/15

Yey

I haven't seen any flip-flopping, which is fortunate since I love your Trojan colors! Hehehe!!!

Anna

I haven't either.

isay

nice template!

Lyn

Everything looks Fall fine on my end.

Gigi

I've asked folks to tell me what they see, and so far everyone is seeing Fall. But not me! Are any of you using a Mac? If so, can you tell me which template you're seeing? I'm thoroughly flabbergasted. :(

rei

I see saffron and curry colors on my screen - and I'm using Mozilla Firefox v. 1.07. It looks fine from my screen, FYI :)

Gigi

Thanks all! I'm also now seeing what you are. I have no idea what happened for a while there (I seriously considered the possibility that I was hallucinating for days) -- but I'm glad it's all over. Phew!

Yey

Saffron and curry... hmmm, what a great description! Better than USC's ketchup and mustard. I love it!!!

Hi Gigi
We're both with TypePad so I wasn't surprised to read this. My own blog has been acting strangely too (I can't see some of the comments onscreen although I know there are comments because my gmail has them). I asked my friends and they said they see all the comments on their screen. I wrote TypePad and they said they're adjusting something. So you (and I) we're imagining things. :)

Gigi

Hi Bugsybee! I really thought I was losing my mind, and I was even thinking of asking Melissa the Bee and Torn (who are both Typepad users too) if they were having problems. And then all of a sudden the problem disappeared. Oh well, I can't wait until they've finished all the improvements they're working on. :)

bugsybee

... weren't imagining things.

Now I have a different problem. The comments keep repeating like spam. :( Do you have that too?

Gigi

Hi Bugsybee, No I don't (knock on wood). Have you tried opening a new help ticket? I do that every single time I have an issue with anything, and they're very quick to respond. I guess the problems vary for each of us, huh?

milkphish

love your new palette, gigi . . . nice earth tones :)

  • LISTEN: "Pluto" by Chamsom

    Boong-

    I don't have to understand Korean to love this song, although I think it's about a person who was in a rocky relationship that ended but still feels deeply for her former lover and is feeling lonely tonight. "You're like a little star that's far away from me and keeps disappearing." I suppose the title -- Pluto used to be known as the ninth planet from the sun but now isn't even considered one -- might provide a bit more context to the song's meaning. Spotify
