‘Man it’s hot. It’s like Africa hot. Tarzan couldn’t take this kind of hot.’


Yeah, so, mighty, mighty good man David and I are packing up Homer and heading to Palm Springs for the holiday weekend.

The weather forecast is, officially, hotter than hell. Luckily, the house we are staying in has air conditioning and a swimming pool. I bought myself a glamorous maternity bathing suit so I plan to spend most of my time in that pool. By the way, in this sentence “glamorous” is defined as “didn’t make me throw up a little in my mouth when I tried it on.” The good thing about my six-month pregnancy belly: It makes everything else look small. My legs and ass don’t look as bad as I thought they would when they’re next to a big, round belly.

We are sharing an awesome house with good buddies Katherine, Roger, Corso, Jen, Beegs, Sass and several pooches. We have been emailing back and forth about departure times and, more importantly, the menu.

Of course, my friends are fabulous, and they all have dishes they are planning to make. I, on the other hand, am relatively useless in the kitchen. I’m thinking about volunteering to make breakfast one morning: [Opens a box of cereal] “Ta-dah! I hope everyone likes Cookie Crisp!”

Happy Independence Day, folks. America! Fuck yeah!

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. I don’t cook much either. I have been wanting to, but I’m just too darn lazy to do it. Luckly my husband does the cooking. :0) I can also open a box of cereal and make a sandwich. Oh and the easy stuff like mac&cheese or tuna. Hope you have a great weekend. I know I will enjoy mine. Husband is finally off this weekend and I have a 3 day weekend. :0)

  2. OK, her’s a little unsolicited advice: If, by chance, your new bathing suit is a two-piece, be careful about tanning that beach ball of yours; when I was a kid, I remember a friend’s mom wearing one while she was preggers… she sat out in the sun every day, tanning, and when she had the kid, all that tanned skin retracted, forming a large, nearly-black spot on her belly…

  3. It’s 103 F here in my neck of the woods. It’s hot ! But we’re luckier here in Ca compared to those living in Phoenix. Yesterday’s temp there was 118 F
