Bullshit

Unlike most people this time of year, I am more preoccupied with things automotive than things culinary. Outsourcing most of the T Day operations helps in this regard, a secret […]

Well, it’s been a less than stellar week in SuzyLand. An unlovely combination of work bullshit and car problems have combined forces to make my outlook bleaker than ever. I […]

I seem to be reluctant to accept the inevitable advent of the winter/rainy season, even though it is spectacularly muddy at my house*, the Ridge is adorned with giant puddles […]

Unimproved

It’s hard not to retain a certain amount of interest in the past, though sometimes it’s better not to look back, since you might not like what you see. A […]

Grilled

My (now older) brother’s birthday fell during the Worst Long Weekend Ever. His birthday, near or on Labor Day, (allegedly) ends the summer, and my sister’s, on or near Memorial […]

Worst Long Weekend Ever

Welcome to hell! You’ll hate it here! I was rewarded for having the temerity to take two days off after working six days a week all summer by a heat […]

I (barely) survived the ordeal of the annual Hell Day Staff Day. This year Staff Day Eve was very nearly as bad as Staff Day itself. It was certainly a […]

It’s been a less than stellar week in SuzyWorld™. To be fair, I did bring some of it on myself*, like scheduling the masochistic extravaganza of a dental cleaning and […]

You would think that the Gilmore Girls revival would be a bright spot in this darkest of Novembers, but you’d be wrong. Within five minutes of the first episode, it […]

Now & Then

Saturday Morning Alert the media, y’all! I slept in until it was sunny out on Saturday morning! It is amazing how a good night’s sleep can improve a girl’s outlook. […]

I got up so early on Hell Day – I mean Staff Day – that Clyde just stayed in bed, like a sane person. Audrey of course bustled out to […]

I have to admit that I don’t check my post office box very often. People who send me things often ask if I have received them and I am embarrassed […]

So, yeah. Still no internet at Suzy Manor as of Saturday morning. The technician did not show up on my blog’s birthday/anniversary last week. I called them three times that […]

Ode to an Engine Light

I just wouldn’t be Me if there wasn’t something wrong with my car. I was driving to work one morning, listening to Bobbie Gentry* and being blinded by oncoming traffic […]

The Office Party

It turns out hell is decorated quite nicely Or “How I Learned More Than I Ever Needed to Know About Lottery Tickets”. I should get a t-shirt that says “I […]

It seems strange that I had more to write about when spending more time at home in Hooterville than I do now I’m out in the world five or six […]

Meanwhile, back in Absurd World™… I foolishly checked the mail on Friday, even though I know no good ever comes of it**, and was greeted with a dental bill for […]

I was not too impressed with my birthday week this year. It kicked off with a pricy vet visit (is there any other kind?) and ended with a pricy tire […]

Darkness & Light

Well, we’re hovering on the brink of yet another time change. I have finally realized that the entire point of the exercise every single time – whether it’s forward or […]

Nothing like ending a week off with a shot of clinic followed by a work chaser. My annual check up was on Monday morning, and when I reported to the […]
