Try not to miss me.

House-sitters/dog-wranglers? Check. Passports? Check. White knuckles for flying on four different airplanes just to get from Montreal to a remote island in the Caribbean? Check.

Lovely people I'm going off grid for a little over a week. I'll be with my family and a gang of close friends celebrating life in general, my 50th birthday and 20 years of marriage to the man I love, otherwise known as The Huz. 

If you miss me please feel free to whine and sniffle in the comments below.

I love you.

Yer pal forever,

The Evolution of SOCIAL MEDIA.

Social media? The cavemen scratched it in the dirt with a stick...

...and now they scratch it on the net with a smartphone.

Gossip, evangelizing, sales, hatedom, fandom... though the media has changed, essentially the messages are all the same. And so many more people have access to it.

Whelp...I think I just drew a couple of neck-beards here.

The Podium ...again.

I was invited to speak at a 'creative non-fiction' class at Marianopolis College today. The class and teacher were wonderful. They have no idea but I pretended to be 3 years old all the way.

This time I read a few funny selections from my blog with pictures and tied the whole thing together with the theme of empathy - in real life and social media.

I thought I might be really nervous like the last time, but it was cool. I didn't trip and fall or nothin'.

Froggy FRIDAY.

I feel like a froggie leaping from Friday lily pad to Friday lily pad.

Some weeks the hang time is a little long. But I usually land with a splash.

The Outsider Parents Club.

Whenever I come to these parent-teacher things at the kids' school, and I see other parents...I feel like an alien.

The other parents are all so familiar with each other. I often experience the same feeling when I try to engage with some online parenting communities and, dare I say it, mommy blog groups. I feel like an outsider. It kinda reminds me of high school...

Anybody else feel this way? I suspect that I don't have to start an Outsider Parents Club. It prolly already is.

The Stowaway.

True story. I was walking down the street....

...minding my own business...

...when the unthinkable happened.

stowaway revealed itself.

And it was flesh toned. 

A lesser woman might cringe in horror...

...but if you are me, you do this:

Tell me about your I mean a friend of a friend's most embarrassing moment.

Please stumble!

Today is my birthday! And it's a BIG one, so I wanted to commemorate it with a little animation.

Yeah, I've been pushing 50 so hard it's staggering over backwards. Some of you may say, "wow, you're old". And some may say, "you don't look 50". And still others may say, "can I have some cake?"

But I say, "THIS IS WHAT 50 LOOKS LIKE."  How old are you?

I love you MORE than beer.

...continued from here.

"I love you more than Twitter!!"

No sooner had the words left my mouth, than The Huz appears at the boy's bedroom door. He looks at me surrounded by all three kids on the boy's bed and says, "did I hear correctly? You love us 'more than Twitter'?"

I nod solemnly. "I knew it! I knew it" yells the 11 year old boy bouncing up and down. "Dad! Dad! Tell us how much you love us?!" His teenaged sisters toss their hair and look annoyed.

The Huz thinks carefully. He strokes his chin and answers, "I love you more than coffee, more than tea, more than wine, more than bacon, more than chocolate, and definitely MORE than Twitter."

I roll my eyes, "yeah, yeah, but how much is that?"

And he says:

And here's the mug to prove it!

Get it NOW, for the one you love, cuz Valentine's Day is coming.

Love someone more than beer? I gots more love mugs in my Zazzle Shop.

I love you MORE than Twitter.

It's bedtime. Both the 11 year old boy and his 14 year old sister stare at me in shock.

"You love us more than chocolate?!?" Hearing the word chocolate, the 17 year old daughter appears at the door. "Did someone say "chocolate"?" she asks.

The 14 year old pipes up, "yeah, apparently she love us more than coffee, more than tea, more than wine, more than bacon, and more than chocolate. Still don't know how much that is though."

The boy is squirming around on his bed as his sisters make themselves comfortable. He's getting all excited so he shouts "MOM how much do you love us?!?"

And I shout back:

And here's the mug to prove it.

Get it NOW, for the one you love, cuz Valentine's Day is coming.

Love someone more than bacon? I gots more love mugs in my Zazzle Shop. Oh and there's 25% off sale. Yay!

FUQ I love this man.

Twenty years ago today, I won the lottery of love and married him.

Another twenty years would be better than diamonds.
