I Might Love My Feet More Than You Love Yours

I Might Love My Feet More Than You Love Yours

Last week I did some house cleaning for this long-neglected blog and came across a picture of my foot.  Those of you who actually read what I used to write may remember that I have been running for a long time (fifteen years, actually), and just like any relationship, my love for running has had...

The Necklace

June 7, 2012

I remember being small and snuggling up to her lap, fingering her squishy chest and long gold necklace.  She would give me a squeeze and shrug her shoulders as she smiled, and I knew I was safe and loved. When I graduated from college she gave me a little wrapped box.  Inside was her...

Can Bliss Come From the Ground Up? Maybe.

April 30, 2012

Those of you who come here regularly may already know that my latest quest for true bliss comes from the ground up.  I used to think that it came from the top down- that if I could just have good hair that nothing else would matter.  And while I haven’t given up on trying...

My Latest Loves

April 10, 2012

I love shopping. KIDDING. I actually do not like shopping, I just like buying stuff.  I like new stuff that looks cool. And I like new clothes and new food and new books and new plants. I cannot always buy new things, so I do a lot of window shopping, mostly online and through...

Maybe We’re Stuck With Camel Toes After All

Maybe We’re Stuck With Camel Toes After All

When I try on a pair of skinny jeans, I expect them to give me a camel toe. Not because that’s the look I’m after, but because nine times out of ten skinny jeans on a non-model equal encased sausage. Finding a pair of jeans that works is golden. My son, who is of...

On Barefoot Running and My New Suede Shoes

March 12, 2012

I am on a new “Program.”  No, I am not quitting cheese or wine or anything lame like that.  I am quitting shoes.  Sort of. You see, with each passing decade, my feet become flatter.  They have atrophied and spread out.  So what seems like growing feet are actually just like slops of raw...

I Don’t Do New Years Resolutions, But…

December 30, 2011

“Clara will be here in twenty minutes.  I’m going to go get ready.” Ten minutes pass. I clop/hobble out of the bedroom to go find a mirror, and Scott catches sight of me as I pass by. Are you going to wear those shoes like that? “Yeah!” (with false confidence)  “It’s totally in right...

I’ll Get Past the Dirty and Enjoy a Cheap Thrill

December 5, 2011

Just passing by an American Apparel store makes me feel dirty. And in LA, where American Apparel was born, there is an AA store on every corner.  Which means I am in constant need of a shower.  Or a confessional.  Or maybe both. Rarely do I actually go into an American Apparel store.  I...

Little Girls Need Girdles, Too

July 18, 2011

I hate panties almost as much as I hate bras.  Bras have always been frienemies of mine.  Despite winning an A+ in the chest category, I still don’t get the reward of going braless because, well, I am not 25.  And yet, 95% of the bras I try on are too big.  The rest...

Summer of Sole

July 6, 2011

Summer is officially here. It’s HOT.  Which means shirts and swimsuits will be worn. Make sure you aren’t sporting any bikini spiders. *Ehem* Summer must be linky season because the fun just keeps rolling in.  I’ve already shown you pictures of my senior hotness, me as big as a house,  and my Axl Rose...

Window Shopping

Window Shopping

I haven’t written about stuff I’m wearing (or would love to wear) in a long time, mostly because we are trying to save up for a house, so there hasn’t been a lot of shopping going on.  Plus, I have had plenty of more important things to write about, like the time I won...

I’m a Vampire With an Urge to Shop

February 28, 2011
I’m a Vampire With an Urge to Shop

Today, I arose from The Sickness. I felt like a cross between a vampiress and Lazarus as I stepped out into the cold, sunny Los Angeles morning. My skin tone is leaning toward a sallow shade of chartreuse. It compliments what I’ve been hacking up each morning. I’m still not operating at 100%, but...

Sexy Blogger

I have already shared my anticipation of Blogher ’11, that I am super excited, but also a wee but anxious.  I mean, ALL the awesome bloggers will be there, including (I hope) the badasses on my Links page. Blogher is about becoming a better blogger.  Making connections.  Learning about all those bloggy acronyms like...

Hope My First Isn’t My Last

December 13, 2010

It’s still eight long months away, but I am already losing sleep over it.  Big feelings of excitement, apprehension, anxiety.  Will I have an experience as great as everyone else?  Or will I feel lost amongst the veterans who already know what they are doing.  Or maybe I will make new friends?  OMG, what...
