If you ran into me on this day in 2013 and asked where I thought I’d be in a year, I would’ve been WAY off. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve lived through BAD years and I know that 2014 doesn’t qualify as one, but it definitely could’ve ended on a higher note. That’s why I’m making New Year’s Resolutions for 2015. I don’t usually believe in resolutions because I think you should change things whenever you want. Waiting for a new year seems pointless, right? But it’s appropriate for me now because someone tore my life into little pieces & threw it up in the air. I’m just lucky because now I get to piece it back together into a pattern I really like.

Everyone knows that eating black eyed peas on New Year’s Day is supposed to bring good luck but did you know that eating collard greens is supposed to bring money?
I imagine most people gloss over that part because they don’t LIKE collard greens or have never tried them. I get it. They look mushy & gross, like something you’d find growing in a gas station bathroom. If you can get over that though & actually get them into your mouth, you’ll find they are AWESOME. At least MY collard greens are. Continue reading →
I’m extremely paranoid. I’m not joking around here. If I talked to a doctor and told him/her EVERY paranoid thought that crosses my mind in a single day they would probably try to medicate me.
I get especially paranoid during road trips when I have to spend the night at a hotel. This comes from years of traveling alone & all the WEIRDNESS I’ve experienced at my roadside stops. I found syringes under my bed once and then there was the guy who got stabbed to death in the parking lot. There was also that one time someone tried desperately to open the door to my room. I was standing naked in front of the TV, brushing my teeth when that started.
The DFW Film Critics Association announced their picks for the best movies of the year. If you haven’t seen that yet, here’s the link: http://www.dfwcritics.com/dfw-film-critics-name-birdman-as-top-film-of-2014/
I’m a member of the DFWFCA (I tell this to everyone within 5 minutes of meeting them) and I agree with our winners, but there are a few other movies I wanted to mention. That’s why I compiled my “2014 Films Most Likely Too…” list. Think of it as the Senior Superlatives for Movies. Continue reading →
My very first memory EVER is of Christmas in Conway, Arkansas with my Granny and Grandpa Hoyt. I remember arriving at their house after a long drive and seeing the Christmas tree right as we walked in the door. I must have been tiny because I remember someone handing me to my Grandfather. He held me next to the tree so I could see the lights and my mind was BLOWN. Clearly, since I remember it so many years later. Continue reading →
Lots of big changes have come my way lately and I’ve suddenly found myself without a platform. This is WILDLY frustrating for someone who has made a living by broadcasting my thoughts for almost 25 years. That is why I’m taking to the internet and building my own stage. This has turned into a slow and sloppy process which, let’s be honest, is the only way I do anything anymore.
Please bear with me while I figure out the bells & whistles but I plan to use this page as my microphone. I’ll be sharing blogs, recipes and reviews of everything I need to voice an opinion about. I appreciate any feedback you have to offer, as long as it isn’t along the lines of “Yr fat & UGLY.”
Happy Holidays and if you have time check out the recipe I just posted. It’s for my Mom’s Rum Balls and I’ve issued a challenge. There’s gotta be a way to get drunk off these things. We just have to figure out how many to EAT!
