I swerved as I was getting my bike into motion, barely missing the elderly woman , who at the same time was passing me. She hissed angrily: ”WHOA! Watch out” and I yelled: ”Sorry” after her.
Fate would have us meet up 200 meters further ahead, waiting at the same red light. I caught her eye and said: ”I apologize, [...]
Monday night and I was exhausted. It was raining, and I had biked fast, so I was sweating – it felt itchy and gross in my wet woolen coat. I was carrying my computer bag, my kid’s backpack, my big purse and my bike helmet. The gym was crowded, it was a quarter past dinner [...]
By now, I am sure you are thinking: “She’s not blogging worth a damn – how DOES she spend her evenings?” (Yeah, I am sure you AND George Clooney are both spending A LOT of time thinking about me.)
So, apart from the fact that I am re-watching the best mothereffin’ television show [...]
We stood behind them in the check-in line. She was tiny and very tanned and very blond and wearing pink sweats with her toned midriff bare and revealing some large letters in winding letters sprawled across her brown, flawless skin, which was completely unstretched and unmarked and perfect. Her nails were very long [...]
My hotelroom is tiny. Still, it has balcony (diminuitive) and when I stand there, if I lean over, I can see the Eiffel Tower.
After classes, I come here, take a shower and turn on some French music television and sit on my tiny bed, going over my notes. Exhausted. Missing my kids. And excited [...]
Ella Fitzgerald: “I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt…it was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popular nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front [...]
Anastasia-Steele: “I groan and run my fingernails across his back. And he gasps, a strangled moan … ‘You are going to unman me, Ana … You—take me.’ I sink down onto him … reveling in the fullness of my possession, reveling in his reaction, watching him unravel beneath me. I feel like a [...]
Cinda: Today two guys called me beautiful. ”Hi, beautiful” – said by a guy where I work, and ”See you tonight, beautiful” – texted from Hubby. And while it is not an everyday event that I am called beautiful, by far, today I just really cringed both times. I was having a real turd of [...]
My dear friend made these for me not too long ago and I’ve been dying to have them again. This morning I finally had the time to do it and they were every bit as good as I remembered. The recipe yields quite a lot though, so we’re having left-over pancakes tomorrow too!
(Serves 6 [...]
Driving home from his buddy, my 8 year old was bitching and moaning: “Why does HE get to have his own iPad AND a Wii AND his own computer AND…”
It was a long list.
True to form, after a while, I snapped. I was never spoiled with lots of stuff myself as a kid [...]
It is late August and hence time to harvest some of all those zucchini and tomatoes (that you can buy at the supermarket!).
1 large zucchine or 2 small ones or a million tiny ones As many zucchini flowers as you have the nerve to pick 4 large tomatoes 1 red bell pepper [...]
I just ate this for dinner and it was delicious!
I thought I’d share:
Olive oil Half a head of pointy cabbage 1 zucchini and as many zucchini flowers as you can get your greedy little hands on 1/2 cup cashew nuts 2 cloves garlic Oyster sauce, [...]
I know a little old lady named Martha. She must be in her late 70’s or (gulp!) EIGHTIES by now!? She is a fun-loving’ gal, fond of bearded men and Scottish whiskey. She won the Newport Seafood and Wine Festival’s oyster-eating competition several times. She is as tall as a stack of cookies, has white, [...]
Honey, let’s go put your shoes on.
Ok, now come and get your shoes.
Honey- you need to put your shoes on.
Do you need me to help you?
Let’s see if you are a BIG boy who can put his own shoes on?
Can you hear me?
YO! Please [...]
We were met with cheese and crackers and homegrown veggies and dip. Hummus and fruit and wine. Trying to overcome the jetlag, we went to bed at a reasonable hour.
For breakfast we had oat-pancakes made with butter-roasted almond splits and blueberries. Served with sliced bananas, chunky peanut butter and maple [...]
I got away from my group of friends, as we went down to the Fjord to watch the traditional Mid-Summer bonfire.
Making my way through the crowd, I caught up with my boyfriend and took his hand. We stood there for a while, leaning in on each other, holding hands, enjoying the sight of the [...]
