Today was my friend’s memorial service. I had planned to take public transportation, but when I got up this morning, I realized that construction on the tracks was going to make my trip take about 3 hours. I sat on my couch moping and had pretty much decided I wasn’t going to be able to make the trek. Then I hear my

Teacher here: One thing that has helped me get my head back in the game is to attend a conference at the beginning of August. I’ve had six weeks off at that point of the summer, so getting together with my fellow math nerds helps get the wheels turning. I also start puttering around in my classroom before it’s time to

Ccongrats!  That is extremely exciting.  My dad tried out for Jeopardy many years ago, and didn’t make it. Junior Grapes is trying to convince me to try out, but my dad always beats me when we watch, so I haven’t done it. Junior is a freshman and wants to try out for the Teen Tournament in a few years. He estimates

Awesome for you.  My good friend and ex-husband were both on Jeopardy. It was fun visiting the studio and clapping with the crowd.   Apparently the secret is hitting the buzzer at just the right time.

WHOO-HOO! Congratulations. I have played from home since forever and dream about being on w/ Alex and crew. I wish you all the luck and will be rooting for everyone as MsCoffee is a mystery.

My week was shitty. I had a coworker take me aside and ask me why I always seem to be upset lately. It’s a combination of adjusting to my new birth control implant (I have fun mood swings with or without HBC) and the fact that while my job function is to literally help my coworkers, none of them ever seem to help me

Hey there! Hope everyone is well. I got news at my annual gyn visit that has really shaken me. Much more than it should even. I have a 3rd degree prolapse of my bladder due to failure of the vaginal mesh used in my hysterectomy 20 years ago. I didn’t realize it was happening. It’s brought up a lot of painful

Some of you have witnessed the last year of me waiting for my hard work to pay off and for things to actually start moving: work, divorce, moving out of my folks’ place, building a life somewhere rather than floating in limbo.

This week has been a FUCKING ROLLERCOASTER! Everything has started moving at a wild pace

Hi Jezzies - another job question. Have you ever been in a situation where you have an offer for a “kinda neat, but not quite great” job and a job listing for an “ermergersh amazing!” job comes up that you are totally qualified for and REALLY want? And the candidate selection process for that awesome job will take a

FYI - it’s legal counsel.  Council is usually used to refer to a governmental body of some kind.

I saw The Drowning Pool at some point. Don’t remember the poster. But that is a very nice hand.
