Where the wild things AREN'T

My friend Amy (see her oh-so telling Formerly moment, under the pot leaves no one would ever suspect her of smoking, right) reminded me of something I’ve been meaning to write about: How part of being a Formerly is how… Continue Reading →

Step off my style, you little poseur!

INSLEE WROTE: What about that “they ruined it” feeling you get when you discover that your treasured, saved-money-up-for, big-ticket-handbag–the one that you finally purchased after waiting until was on markdown–is on the arm of most 13 year old girls at the mall!

Desperately seeking silly

I’m not old, really. How can 33 be old? That’s just coming into my true self, right?… but I miss my formerly hyper and silly self.
