Last Call in What's up

If she had only known how many people loved her…I wonder if it would have made a difference.

Loss in What's up

My sister’s ex-wife killed herself Thursday morning with her service pistol (she was a cop.) Those who have known me since the early days of OD will remember how close the three of us were. She w...

F' yeah! in {Insert Pithy Book Title}

Women FTW!


WASSUP!? No, that’s not really me, but I was thinking I might need a new image to go with the changes here. I’ll give it a think. What’s up with me? Well, quite a bit really. I’m not even going t...


Well, it looks as if Simple Mind has accomplished a miracle. I hope so. I also hope he stays involved and reaps or has reaped some TANGIBLE benefit from his hard work, late nights and spooky Zen-...


Or: Open Note to Bruce (or whomever) To: Kate Hello! I hope this email finds you well. You may have already heard the news - but if you haven’t, Open Diary has been re-launched! We have had ove...

Take a deep breath everyone in What's up

And count to ten. I was feeling the Johnson. In my state it didn’t matter. But this is what we have now and we have to live with it. Funny, I remember Dems in 2008 saying “we got through eight y...

Just a little tease in What's up

Very introverted lately. Diagnosed with PTSD for the second time. First time EMDR worked wonders, this time it helped, but not enough. It’s hard to compare my experience with people who have kill...


A GOOD tired. My busy season is well upon me, and I won’t catch a breath until Jan 13th. I will catch a lot of dough, so, tradeoffs. I signed a sweet exclusive with the guy who literally wrote th...

I'm off the boat in What's up

This will be quick. I am up at 5:00, to deliver training at 7:30, then must gather and send tax stuff to my very patient account (who has also been a friend for over 20 years) in time for him to ...

I'm on a boat in What's up

A really big one, in the Caribbean, heading to Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. Don’t get too envious, his parents are also on this boat, along with 5,000 other people. But the cookies are free...

Oral fixation in What's up

Not in the good way. I had the latest of God-knows how many oral surgeries Tuesday. Dating back to Thanksgiving, this is three so far, and so far, the worst. I’ve had an adult tooth impacted in t...

NPR called... in What's up

…I almost fell asleep listening to the voice mail. Ba-dum-dum! No, really. An NPR affiliate contacted me about the piece, and interviewed me yesterday for a segment on media responsibility. I’m ...

xoJane in What's up

The article was published this morning. It’s the most commented item of the day, so far. Feel free to share it with my real name, but not my ProseBox name. Thanks! http://www.xojane.com/it-happe...


In no order. They aired the “documentary” about my sister’s murder. Other than the names, the story bore little resemblance to the facts. The police didn’t cooperate, and since the family didn’t ...

Oh, Hai! in What's up

It’s proposal season. Which means a lot of money, a lot of work, and…nope, that’s it. A lot of work. Frank is with his mother in FL. She has had a bad time of it lately, suffering from early-dem...

One of our own in What's up

A long time ODer, one of our own, Mj, just lost her husband of 32 years to a massive heart attack. Mj has two teens, and they are left in financial straights in addition to the devastating loss o...

And look, we all survived in What's up

Here we are! It's a new day, and a nice one. Gather round friends and let's build a new community. We are the ones who make it a home. Today, I am buying some hiking boots. What are you doing?...

Goodnight, OD in What's up

I can't think about what it means. There have been too many goodbyes. 15 years. That's a long time. I'm glad we all found each other.


If any or all of the speculation in my previous entry applies, the time-cost to mitigate could be as much as the investment to improve the site to profitability. It is evident he is unwilling—or ...


I don't know his personal reasons for not selling, but I can give you a few that may apply. It is not easy to sell a business even if you have a buyer. There is more to it than just the code, d...


Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night, and read on my Kindle until I can go back to sleep. Sometimes I read diaries/boxes. Last night I either dreamed or read that someone ordered new Tu...

Dates in What's up

I'm around. Reading. Hi. This month we mark nine years since we met. We are strangely giddy about it. It's also Cocktober, so that could be contributing to the giddy. We will be 10 months marrie...

Fuck crazy people in What's up

I don't want to put this on Facebook, because I have too many local connections. We knew TWO of the people murdered Monday at the Navy Yard. Washington D.C. is a pretty small town, so the chances...

Wordless in What's up

I am writing, but not here and nothing personal. An eBook that will bring in some money. It's brain-numbing, but easy. The A-to-Z's of the contract that is my professional specialty. It will be a...
