I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.
It has been a bit of an odd week. Government officials were acting bratty while the populace held back its murderous impulses. However, there were some wacked out thoughts put out there. Weiner in an interview noted that he was without a soul. Such a declaration, while appearing […]
The blood drips from her eyelashes Onto her punched out heart filled with smoldering ashes Her bladder churns out a burning pool of pain While her hands are numb from sewing love knots in vain Her legs keep running even while her bones become brittle Quietly her nose tastes […]

Dear self-righteous humans: Leave us mere mortals alone I would like to pen this post to address a serious problem we are facing in the United States. Everyday, without fail, I come across the self-righteous. You would think this is something that one would have to measure by […]
Smile! I cannot promise others will smile in return But I can promise you will feel a joyous burn Smile! For it will be your armor against the venom darts That the embittered will wrongly aim at your heart Smile! For in the darkest, stormiest hour You will […]
I am just going to say it outright. I am so tired of trite social media status updates that sound like one long reason for individuals to be self-centered and not take responsibility for their actions. How many times during one day, must people post status updates that […]
Saying it has been a wacky week is indeed a gross understatement. Politicians have become even more unhinged, the media more self-serving and our friends in the animal kingdom have gone on a terror binge. Rage is the latest craze. Let the wacky madness begin. 1. Hornets […]
