Haaaaaave you met Lisa? Lisa is a humor blogger who plays an unconvincing lawyer in real life. She shouldn’t be allowed around sharp objects, anything breakable, or anything with carbohydrates. She prefers dogs over most people, and food over most everything. Her blog will make you feel better about your own life and remind you that vodka is the answer to everything. Except if the question is “What should I throw on this fire?” Then the answer is definitely NOT vodka.
I’m a fan of the 80s. Who isn’t, really? But I like to think I’m a super fan. I also like to think I’m a size 6, but my pants say otherwise.
Whatever. I’m right about the 80s thing.
In addition to my love of Milli-Vanilli and Vanilla Ice (and vanilla ice cream), I also love 80s movies. From a 24-year old Matthew Broderick portraying a high schooler…

For a long time, I thought I was going crazy. I’d convinced myself that something horribly wrong was about to happen. I thought I would be stabbed, shot, or arrested every time I left my apartment. I was sure that there was an impending disaster that would melt the…

My father died three weeks ago. He was in hospice, with all the pharmacological and technological assistance available to keep him comfortable and pain-free, but it was still, as deaths go, not a good one.
I had flown in hours after I’d heard about his fall. He was in late-stage heart and renal failure, and this fall was the beginning of the end. When I arrived, a nurse popped into the room to check on him. “Are you in pain?” she asked. “Just a little,” my dad said, joking through his wincing.
It didn’t have to end like this.
My father was born larger than life, to a family of larger than life people. DNA sequencing showed we are almost entirely Viking stock, no great surprise given the height and breadth of our bodies.
When my father turned 20, he was over 6’2 and 300lbs. His feats of athleticism echoed…

Cutest thing ever.
On a day that people celebrate Mothers’Day, I think about two small little kiddos who’ve made me a mother. They entered my life & turned it inside out, upside down, for better & for worse. But with each passing day of being their Mama, I realise motherhood isn’t about me making them who I want them to be, rather, its God making me who He wants me to be. That’s right. I don’t know if I’ve made a difference to their lives by being a sahm. There are days when I doubt it. But one thing for sure. I know they have changed me into a better person. They’ve made me a Mama, & it’s good enough for me.
As I lie down next to my firstborn before she sleeps, she will talk through her day, sing songs she has learnt, and chatter chatter chatter. These past 2 nights, in…

You’ve heard about Michael Jeffries, the 68-year old face behind Abercrombie and Fitch? He is the “brain” behind the idea to remove size XL from the women’s section of the store and only sell up to size 10. However, his reasons are sincere and honest. He only wants cool, skinny, beautiful kids to shop at AF. Oh. Okay.
Before you momcott AF and burn their clothes in effigy*, let’s think this through. I’m sure the Board of Directors only agreed to this asinine idea because Jefferies’s latest round of plastic surgery affected the part of his brain that acts as a moral compass. They’re trying to be compassionate and sensitive to the weirdo in the room.
That’s probably why they gave the go-ahead to these t-shirt messages:
because Jeffries’s other suggestions like:

Dear Disney Channel Executives,
My daughter Journey has recently become a fan of the Disney Channel. She just turned 7, she has officially outgrown Nick Jr. and since Nick seems to show SpongeBob all day, she has moved over to the Disney channel. At first, she was pretty much only watching Phineas and Ferb. Eventually, she started watching the rest of the line up including Good Luck Charlie, Austin and Ally, Shake It Up and Jessie.
