Before I begin this week's incredibly important Pieces of Wisdom question, let me remind you that we are doing Christmas good deeds, or should I say HOLIDAY good deeds--sorry--and if you wish to sign up, you may do so on my Sunday post. Which means, yes, you have to scroll all the way down TWO … Continue reading Pieces of Wizzzdom. I scream, you scream…
And stop calling me Shirley.
I hope you all enjoyed gathering with your familieses for the Thanksgiving holiday. If you are Americans and not, you know, European communists. I like to call this photo Family. With vodka. We really aren't that drinky of a group. Which explains why the vodka is Popoff or however you spell it, and not, you know, Grey Goose. … Continue reading Okay, we gave thanks. Hello CHRISTMAS!
Here is a post I wrote in November of 2008. The next day I wrote from my high school diary. In all I am lovely and not at all self-centered. I have kept a diary since fifth grade, when my Grammy got me a Holly Hobby-esque one for Christmas. She also got me a pen … Continue reading Another June Flashback: Dear Lovey Heart…
I had to dash down and tell you this. We were just having dinner and my Aunt Kathy may have been on glass of wine number two. "You know, my whole life, I never drank," she said dramatically, swirling her glass of red around. "But lately at night I think, 'You know, what will it … Continue reading Betty Ford. Sort of.
came back normal! I am normal!!!! Who knew?
Here is a post I wrote in May of 2008. Some of you have said it's your all-time favorite, but I think you're blowing smoke up my arse: I have so many things to tell you. I was thinking about them all day at work, and even wrote a list of what I had to … Continue reading A June Flashback: Windbag
Well, my bags are packed. I'm ready to go. Taxi's waitin' outside my door. If by "taxi" you mean my own car. Anyway, here we go, off to my Aunt Kathy's house. Which by the way is not in Michigan, for those of you thinking I was going to Michigan. Such as Hulk. Hulk was out getting … Continue reading Gratitude
If you were thinking I had an answer about my mammogram you are MISTAKEN. I have to wait wait wait while vultures hang on the trees around me and a strange man with a hood and sickle hangs in my living room and the raven cries, "Lenore!" Plus, who tied all the pink ribbons on … Continue reading In which we skip Pieces of Wisdom because it’s a holiday week
Some of us are less worried than others of us about my stupid mammogram. I think we should all be more worried about why Winston is wearing shoes.
By the way, Marvin who? Since he got that car yesterday, which he wanted me to stress to you is BRONZE and not pink, he has been nowhere but under its hood. Right now the BRONZE car is going, "Vroom! Vroom!" and there is a sickening smell in this computer room, which is right next … Continue reading Wherein June passes
You know the part where I have a puppy? And yes, half this picture IS some kind of odd color, and dude, I do not know what to tell you about this camera battery other than it is bad all the time. Yes, I did just call you dude. Anyway, I have a puppy with … Continue reading Greensboro Barbie
Often, people say to me, "Have you read that Hyperbole and a Half"? and I am all, "No" because I am completely self-centered and why would I want to read another blog? Besides, I love Miss Doxie even though she hasn't written for over a year. Yesterday at work, a 64-year-old coworker who doesn't even … Continue reading Linkin Nebraska
Today is Marvin's birthday. He is 14. Here he is about to open his gifts. That's my coffee, of course. "what dis birfday? never herd. edsel not have birfdays. r you sure there is rully such a thing?"

It's Wednesday, and it's once again time for Pieces of Wisdom. This week we all took the enneagram test, so we could get a little insight into the frighteningness that is our personality over here at Bye Bye, Pie. Yes, we all have one personality. It is all glommed together. The enneagram is a personality … Continue reading Pieces of Wisdom Wednesday: Whooo are you? Who who? Who who?
I interrupt this Pieces of Wisdom to say KATE MIDDLETON ROCKS THE HOUSE!
In case you don't read the comments, I'd like you to just go back to yesterday's post and casually peruse it, and ask yourself, How in the Sam Holy Hill did that relatively benign post result in 114 comments on anal bleaching? Y'all all are an interesting bunch. And this is why we are going … Continue reading Pieces of Wisdom–Who the Hell ARE You?
Today is the day my Tea Partier/Dog Walker is going to clean my disgusting house! Oh, what a red-letter day. I think it took as much time for me to prepare for her as it would have to, you know, clean the house. Still. I am bad at cleaning. Do you clean the house and … Continue reading I survived the Nester visit
but I have rented all of season five of The L Word, which I somehow never got to see. I have to go be a lesbian for the day and cannot blog. Not that lesbians do not blog. Oooo, that Shane is hot.
I have no real plans this weekend and it is lovely. It is also convenient, since yesterday I went to bed at 6:15 p.m. I would have been a lot of fun had I had anywhere to go. Today The Nester is coming over because I bought her old coffee table from her. Oh my … Continue reading Lazy
