The Evolution of An Online Persona: Or a Softer, Gentler Winelibrarian

I have been thinking of writing this post for some time now, but forcing myself to sit down and write this has been a hard thing to do. You see, I am a drastically different person today than I was two years ago. And an even more drastically different person than I was three, four, […]

#25ActsofXmas

I’ve always been the gift-giving type. The more I like you, the more I’ll randomly buy you something, just because it made me think of you. I give gifts to show that I care about someone. I think I do that because that’s a way my family has always shown love. My grandma regularly takes […]

On Being Thankful

So, Thanksgiving is two days away and I have seen a lot of people on social media doing these sort of “be thankful for something every day in November” thingys, but of course I would do mine differently. Besides, there are thirty days in November and that’s a lot of thankfulness to make up, I […]

Fickle Friends Can Go Eff Themselves

In my quest to actually stick to my weekly blogging schedule, I’ve been racking my brain this morning on what to write about. The past couple of days, and hell, maybe even the last year, have made me really evaluate my friendships with people so I thought I’d blog about the reasons why everyone should […]

Homance Roadtrip Day 2

So I was an asshole and didn’t blog yesterday. Instead, I fell asleep while watching one of the Harry Potter movies in our hotel room. I woke up when @winelibrarian said something about someone dying. I couldn’t even tell you which movie it was. I just know that Ron Weasel-face showed up in the middle and […]

Homance Roadtrip Day 1

We had intended to blog before we set out this morning. But, as they say, the road to Hell is paved with good intentions and stilettos. Or something like that. We started out our morning eating the most delicious pancakes ever with @winelibrarian’s grandma and I learned that @winelibrarian once put puppies through Puppy School. […]

Of Being Alone and Loneliness: One is Not The Other

My grandma came to visit me on Saturday for the first time since I got divorced. I’d visited my family in Pennsylvania a few times, but it was her first time seeing my new place (she was quite skeptical about me moving). My grandma worries about me a lot. She doesn’t like where I work […]

Mean Girls: Why Do Women Tear Each Other Apart?

So, I’ve had a couple of blog post ideas rolling around in my head for awhile; some personal, some not as much. I really would like to have done more research on this one, academic research I mean, but I feel like with the current climate of WAR ON WOMEN and THE VAGINA ATTACKS, it […]

Homance: North Of the Border Edition

Today marks the final day of our #friendshipfebruary theme. We’re kind of sad to see it go, as it’s been so much fun (and inspiring) to highlight so many of our favorite Twitter friend pairs. Very few people make us smile as much as @g_bugg and @Babe_Chilla. They have the kind of friendship everyone wishes […]

Starcrossed Lovers: The DERZ and BARX Love Story

When we asked @vdaze and @brandibax to participate in #friendshipfebruary, we should have known that they would do things their way and hijack our questionnaire. Honestly, we might have been kind of disappointed if they hadn’t. We kind of see Jess and Brandi as classier, more politically astute versions of ourselves. Basically, we want to […]
