The German Shepherd strikes again: ReDirkuolous

I’m from Dallas. You could say I’ve got a rather hefty professional-sports chip on my shoulder: First we endured the epic fall-from-grace of the once mighty Cowboys (and now their half-hearted, mildly embarrassing attempt at resurrection). Then we suffered through the Mavericks chronic bought of choking-in-the-finals syndrome. And then there was a somewhat controversial incident in … Continue reading

Five reasons women cannot make decisions

Nothing-doing, Kirstey Alley. My love of all things flour-based … Continue reading

And now, a note on personal space.

Ah, the heat. The silence, the blessed absence of phones ringing, and the little pink-and-orange Lululemon mat that will be the extent of my world for the next 90 minutes. Hot yoga is something that I whole-heartedly endorse. It makes me feel better, makes me crave such oddities as steamed spinach, and I would be … Continue reading
