A few sad stories and then something funny, I promise

1 Comment

Yeah, so, I’ve got a few things to write about, and I don’t even know where to start.

Let’s start with the past few weeks have not been my favorite.

My grandmother passed away last week. She was 93. She was really amazing, and the original Church Lady, in my opinion. She was tiny, less than 5 feet tall, and she had 8 kids. 8 KIDS, you guys!

She knew I loved her, and I know she loved me, and she might have even been proud of me, even though I don’t go to church. I did a reading during her service, and I thought about opening with a joke about how Grandma was always trying to get me to go to church, “but this is taking it too far, Grandma.”

I won’t go on and on here because my family asked that we don’t post anything on Facebook, but my blog isn’t Facebook. LOOPHOLES! I will say that I love her, and I will miss her. I wrote her obituary, and if you’re interested it’s riiight here.

Oh, and best buddy Kate moved to Colorado for a job.

I’m so proud of Kate for making a big change in her life. But selfishly, I want her here! She’s an awesome person and an amazing friend. I will never been able to thank her enough for being there for me during some of the craziest times of my life: cancer, pregnancy, cancer again, chemotherapy, anxiety attacks … Of course, she was always around during the best times of my life: meeting my mighty, mighty good man David, the wedding and Calvin. She was my go-to person. My #1 in SF. Now she’s my #1 in The ‘Rado!

Even though she’s in another state, I have no doubt we will still talk all the time. She’s one of those friends that you just know you’re always going to be friends and be in each other’s lives. I’m just bummed that she’s not here to go to Chili’s with me. I am looking forward to hanging out in Colorado, though. They have good beer, and they’ve got Kate!

OH, and our Little Cat Friend passed away. Her bone infection was just too much for her, so some of the neighbors split the cost of having someone come and put her down. It was sad. We have her ashes now, and we’re going to bury her in a sunny spot in our yard where she loved to hang out.

OK, OK, Let’s talk about something fun …

I strongly encourage you – some might even say beg you – to check out some of our latest Dorking Out episodes. We had SO MUCH FUN talking about “The Contender” with Margo from The Best Neighbors Podcast and Book V Movie. This episode is really funny.

Also, I know the Academy Awards were forever ago, but after the show Smith and I recorded an episode, so if you want to hear Drinky Sonia talk about the Oscars, then this episode is for you.

You can listen to Dorking Out here, or you can find us on iTunes, Stitcher and YouTube. If you listen to the show, I’d love to hear what you think. You can comment here, or on our website or Facebook page.

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, go to baseball games, kick breast cancer's ass, explore with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, 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.

One thought on “A few sad stories and then something funny, I promise
