Please enjoy this guest post! This time we are talking BFF’s and how important it is to stay connected no matter how far away the two of you live from one another.

Enjoy and thank you for the tips! Your BFF is your rock, your everything. She knows you so well that she can even finish your sentences. Whether you’ve had the same best friend… Continue Reading

Bang Your Head…Carefully

Bang Your Head..carefully

Bang your head….carefully! I write a blog but it doesn’t always mean I follow my own advice 100% of the time. I’m human! Plus, I can’t be held accountable when some good tunes come on from Metallica or Godsmack. And…..Teddy Brewski accidentally gave me a black eye. Don’t worry- I’m not pressing charges. But, I have frozen broccoli on my face and think the least he can do is get me some frozen corn for tomorrow. Still waiting to see if I’m concussed but pretty sure I am because I watched The Bachelorette and Dancing With The Stars. Question is… Continue Reading

Why People Like Memes 4: Extra Snarky

Why People Like Memes 4

I have not done an installment of “Why People Like Memes” in a few months and since I am moving slower than my ex-boyfriend running for the last piece of cake at a party, I am pleased to present you with a few extra guydlines for your snarky, reading pleasure. Enjoy and hope you are having a stellar Tuesday morning. BTW – I am using the number 4 for this one since I get confused the higher the Roman Numeral goes. K? Better to be safe than sorry and called out by trolls later down the line, right? I am… Continue Reading

Let’s Play Ball: Live With SF Giants Bryan Srabian at AT&T Park Friday 5/7/15 for Social Hangout

Let’s Play Ball: Live With SF Giants Bryan Srabian at AT&T Park Friday 5/7/15 for Social Hangout

I have Matt Williams rookie card in mint condition. My sister was the only girl invited to Barry Bonds birthday party when she was 7. My mom bowled with some of the wives from the SF Giants team circa 70’s and I learned how to fire a softball from the hot corner when I was just a little, snarky one. I grew up playing every sport under the sun. By the time I was in high school, I was an annoying date for any baseball game since I had the ability (and still do) to call pitch location before the… Continue Reading

Exclusive Interview with Jane Seymour on Social Hangout: Mother’s Day

Jane Seymour

Happy Mother’s Day week! If your mother is anything like mine she deserves to be honored 365 days a year. She has been there for me through both good and bad times. One day is not enough to thank her for everything she does and continues to do for me. I love my mom! She is a rockstar and the Queen Supreme of snark. In case you missed it, I had the privilege of interviewing Jane Seymour on Social Hangout last week talking about our mothers and Mother’s Day. BTW….I am the new co-host of Social Hangout on Fridays so… Continue Reading

What Is A Good Word To Describe Someone Who Is A “DingDong”?

What is a good word to describe someone who is a "dingdong"?

I wonder how many times a day I shake my head at all the idiots I know? When I say that I work as a flytrap for all the stupid people in the world, I really do. So, what does one do when they can’t believe all the stupidy around them? One takes to Facebook to ask for a little help from their real friends. This is a real thread from my snarky friends on Facebook! Thanks to everyone who replied! I told you this was good for a post! When I say I work as a flytrap for all… Continue Reading
