BLOG: Is Tee-Peeing A House A Family Affair?

“Take the kids out tee-peeing! They’ll LOVE IT!”

This sage advice came from some friends I had dinner with recently. They were telling me about the BEST birthday party they’d ever thrown for their daughter and how it ended in toilet paper and ski-masks. The party started with games, cake and ice-cream, but then they took their daughter and her friends on a TP-Rampage that the girls (who are now in college) still talk about today. It was, without a doubt, the BEST PARTY EVER!

I think of these 2 as impeccable parents but I also wasn’t sure about introducing my kids to minor vandalism. I LOVED tee-peeing houses as a kid of course, but it was done in secrecy and certainly without parental supervision. We had to SNEAK OUT to do it. Continue reading →

BLOG: Flying With Daddy

This is my favorite photo of my Dad. You can probably tell that it’s old and a little faded. It’s actually been living in a magnet-frame on my fridge for the past 10 years.

Dad’s always happiest when he’s flying, though he doesn’t do much of it anymore. He even sold his plane not long ago, which was a surprise to all of us. Most of my childhood memories involve sitting in the backseat of a small plane with a hamster cage on my lap (Yes, I insisted on taking my hamster with us though I can’t remember WHY).

BLOG: Moving Day

You won’t hear from me much this week because we are finally moving into our new house. The actual Move-In-Day isn’t until Saturday but I’m already moving stuff, one carload at a time. It’s a horribly inefficient use of my time but I don’t really care. I simply HATE moving and want to get it over with.

I started a career in radio 25 years ago and have lived in 4 different states during that time. I have also lived in multiple homes in each state, which means I have moved 9 times since college. When we move out of temporary housing this weekend, it will be the second time I’ve moved in the past 7 months. Continue reading →

BLOG: A Mother’s Right to Annoy

Mother’s Day is difficult for me because my own mother is deceased. This is my 9th Mother’s Day without her and, as anyone who has lost their Mom will tell you, it never gets easier.

I don’t feel right NOT buying a present for her, either. I LOVED buying things for Mom when she was alive. She rarely treated herself so it was fun to buy her frivolous or fancy things. When you asked what she wanted, she would say lame stuff like, “I really need a new bra and a slip. You could buy it at Wal-Mart.” No Mom, I’m NOT buying you underwear. It’s creepy.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: Think You Can Make It Through “Poltergeist” Without Peeing Yourself?

Omigodomigodomigod…I am so freaking excited about this movie! Poltergeist is one of my all-time FAVORITE scary movies and probably in my “Top 10 of All Time.” I even wrote a blog about how it ruined my life, which you can read by clicking HERE if you happen to be bored or sitting on a toilet.

I love Poltergeist so much that I was pissed when I found out they were remaking it. Then I saw the trailer. Holy sh*t, I won’t be able to sleep for WEEKS after this.

Wanna go? I have free passes to see Poltergeist in Dallas AND in Austin. If you THINK you can handle it, just click on the links below. I’ll see you there but WARNING: I tend to scream and thrash about through the scary parts.

I AM A BIG BRAVE PERSON WHO WANTS TO SEE “POLTERGEIST” IN DALLAS

I AM A BIG BRAVE PERSON WHO WANTS TO SEE “POLTERGEIST” IN AUSTIN

Remember, THEY ALREADY KNOW WHAT SCARES YOU!!!

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!
