BLOG: My Gift to a Homeless Man & the Unintended Results

I see a homeless man every day after taking the girls to school. He lives at a DART bus-stop and always has multiple shopping carts with him, filled with cardboard boxes. The first time I noticed him, he had his pants-legs hitched up and was vigorously scratching some terrible looking sores on his legs. That’s when I named him Scratchy. Continue reading →

PODCAST: “Julie Says So” Kayaks Muffins & Walrus Sex

I must have been partially drunk when I recorded this one. First I said it’s May 5th when it’s obviously May 6th. THEN I said, “Speaking of movies,” when NO ONE was speaking of movies. This podcast includes references to boating with snakes, fighting with fishermen, hormonal meltdowns and yes…sex with a walrus. I guess I really WAS partially drunk when I recorded this!

BLOG: Love & the Zoo (Want To Touch My Monkey?)

I fell for a fake news story yesterday about a zookeeper who was having sex with a walrus. Here’s a link if you want to read it but remember, it isn’t true.
NOT A TRUE STORY (BUT FUN TO READ REGARDLESS)

You have to wonder who the poor girl in the photo above is. Will someone read the story, NOT hear that it’s false and then meet her at the grocery store one day?

“How do I know yooooooooo…wait I REMEMBER!” Continue reading →

BLOG: My Very First “Muffins With Mom”

I went to my very first “Muffins with Mom” this morning. If you don’t have kids you probably don’t know that every year, right before Mother’s Day, elementary schools serve muffins and coffee to the moms. Dads get “Donuts with Dad,” which the kids secretly like more because everyone knows donuts are better than muffins. Despite this, my daughters were REALLY excited about having me there this morning.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Mad Mad: Fury Road” On Me!

If you’re anything like me, you MIGHT have yawned a little bit at the idea of a new Mad Max movie. You might have even launched into a “Hollywood has run out of ideas,” rant.

Then you heard that Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron would star in it and your interest piqued. Not long after, you started seeing the posters and trailers and now you’re full-blown excited about it! Jeez Louise, LOOK at Charlize in this thing! She’s TERRIFYING! Continue reading →

City Hikes: The White Rock Paddle Company (*Beware of Snakes & Spiders)

I’ve been reviewing area hiking trails since January but it’s starting to get HOT out there. Sure, I like to hike but once temperatures excede 90 degrees, I get a little whiny. That’s why I’ve decided to also review kayak and paddleboard rental agencies over the summer. If you KNOW of any, please leave those suggestions in the “Comments” section.

I hit The White Rock Paddle Company last week and was THRILLED to see they were open again. Continue reading →

BLOG: Happy Mother’s Day! Here’s Your Annual Anxiety Attack

I ask for the same thing every year for Mother’s Day:

Shopping money & time to go out & spend it.

This was a special treat back when my kids were small and had to be held, entertained and wiped frequently. A little time alone to shop was like a spa treatment. Actually, EVEN BETTER if I found something on sale that fit nicely. I remember one particular late night trip to Super Target that felt like HEAVEN. The store was cool and well lit, so I got a Starbucks and even tried on clothes. It was so far beyond my usual scope of experience at that point, it almost felt illicit. Continue reading →
