The Day After Hate

February 15, 2012


I’m forgoing my intended post for today, in which I was to reveal the true meaning of life, the results of the upcoming presidential election, and what is the best source for do-it-yourself dentistry. Instead, I’m going to share with you some of the blogs I discovered when I was perusing the tsunami of comments […]

Oops, She Did it Again

December 21, 2011


OK, so I’m supposed to be a humor writer (in my mind, of course).  And I write the nonsense that’s in my head, which folks think is funny and I think is amazing that they think it’s funny because it’s just the stuff that always pops into my head, unbidden, anyway.  I don’t ever sit […]

An Award is Better Than A Punch in the Nose

September 24, 2011


Nancy of notquiteold has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.  So I have to write seven things about me and then nominate 15 other bloggers.  Here are 7 tasty tidbits about me: 1. I’m an only child. 2.   I don’t ride a bicycle. 3. My food choices are on par with a five year […]

A Life in Posts

August 24, 2011


My first blog post. Tori, Tori, Tori.  She’s one hell of a wordsmith, all right.  Like Rapunzel’s hair, Tori’s words spill effortlessly out, seemingly without end.  And they don’t even get split ends.  So when Tori designated me as the “hilarious Renee Fisher” and gave me the 7 Posts Award: Share Your Best Posts With […]

An Award, An Acknowledgement, and a Pope for Dinner

May 31, 2011


Territerri of just gave me the Versatile Bloggers Award.  Territeri is special for a couple reasons, the least of which is that she has a repeating name (think John John Kennedy). TT writes about her life in a way that makes me want to grab my coffee cup, pull up a chair, and join in.  […]

Not the Oscars, But Sort of Better

May 25, 2011


This morning, after waking up, looking in the mirror and seeing two completely different people represented on my head, I began to muse on the medicinal uses of Spanx. It was then that my intellectual reverie was interrupted by being alerted that I had received a “Versatile Blogger Award” from Coming East.  As the recipient, I must tell you […]

London: Why I’m Here and Why I’m There

March 23, 2011


Whatta week!  Life in the Boomer Lane arrived n London on Thursday to spend the week with her daughter, grandson, and son-in-law.  As if that weren’t exciting enough, LBL found out on Saturday that from 4000 entries submitted to the NPR short story contest that she entered in January, hers was one of a dozen selected […]

I’m too Famous for my Pilates Class

March 15, 2011


Actually I’m not.  What with the whole Freshly Pressed thing yesterday, and with all the comments pouring in, I thought maybe I should stay home and answer them, instead of going to class. But the truth is that I just always try to think of a reason not to go to the gym (like the […]

The Good, the Bad, and the Inexplicable

February 18, 2011


  Whatta week in Blog World.  First, THE GOOD: I found out that I was awarded the Style Blogger Award   from Barb at  This sent me into a tailspin because 1. I don’t win things.  2. Even when I do win things, I’m not aware of it. Wendy at told me she had given […]
