I Still Believe in Love

Before you write me off as a 30 year-old spinster with slight feminist sympathies, I want you to know that I still believe in love.  I believe in romance and my little girl heart longs for it—just not with a man.  I mean, it does, but at the same time I’m still shattered from myContinue reading “I Still Believe in Love”

Book Review:: The Choice by Suzanne Woods Fisher

I’m a Pennsylvania girl who lives a hop, skip and a jump from Lancaster County, so I no longer gawk at Amish or Mennonites in their plain clothes and buggies (though I do get excited about the horses).  Growing up with knowledge of the Amish, I was eager to dig into Suzanne Woods Fisher’s book,Continue reading “Book Review:: The Choice by Suzanne Woods Fisher”

Movie Review:: He’s Just Not That Into You (2009)

Ladies, when a guy doesn’t call it’s not because he’s too busy or out of town for a mother or in a coma following in a tragic skydiving accident.  The truth is this—he’s just not that into you.  Or so says bartender Alex (Justin “The Mac Guy” Long) to lovelorn Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin) as sheContinue reading “Movie Review:: He’s Just Not That Into You (2009)”

Helping Guy Meet Girl, Part 1

Spring is in the air, and you know what that means?  More roadkill!  Deer, birds, rabbits, and other creatures are so twitterpated that they’re ignorant of things like roads and vehicles.  Blinded by their instinct to mate, our animal friends leap to and fro ignoring their surroundings…and end up dead…on the side of the road.Continue reading “Helping Guy Meet Girl, Part 1”

The Confident Woman

  “A Woman’s Shadow”, mixed media, by J. Holland Berkley  Since I wrote the post, “I Wish I Was Beautiful”, I’ve had a lot of interesting comments.  In fact, I think it’s the only non-Hannah Montana post that’s generated that much “conversation”.  Interestingly enough, when I check out my blog stats to see what searchContinue reading “The Confident Woman”

How to Be Irresistible to Men

Mimi from “The Drew Carey Show” was confident, eccentric, and the take charge-type…and she ended up with Drew’s brother, who liked to wear dresses…hmm… I was only checking my e-mail…honest. You know how web-based e-mail is–tantalizing little articles pop up on the site’s main screen and well, sometimes, you’ve just got to click ’em. SoContinue reading “How to Be Irresistible to Men”

“When We Dance” by Sting

Because it’s Valentine’s Day and I’m feeling a little romantic (for no apparent reason), I’m going to post one of my fave songs. The music video’s a little freaky, but Sting, a stringed instrument, a unicorn man, and weird architecture, what more do you need out of life? Also, it looks like Sting is theContinue reading ““When We Dance” by Sting”
