  • Activating Chao Camp: Absence of Dignity

    July 4th Weekend, 2009: a bunch of fools descend upon Anna Beth Chao’s home in Monroe, Louisiana for four days of beer, music, Sonic, and whatnot. Anna Beth, Allison and Pamie talk about a number of issues, including the state of their hair (or lack thereof), their superpowers (or lack thereof), and dignity (or lack […]

  • maintenance

    Yesterday I made a list of people I needed to call to schedule appointments. At the top of the list: allergist. Mom called yesterday morning and said, “Have you seen the wheat doctor yet? I really want you to be able to eat bread again.” I think the next time I come to town, she’d […]

  • I promise I’m not dead.

Now because […]

  • No Labor

    that’s the plan, anyway Late update today. Sorry. Kicking off Labor Day weekend a bit early, which is nice. So, it’s been 104-106 around here every day, which is unacceptable, if you ask me. It causes me to shed.
