Something Other Than Listsicles, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:48am

I want to thank whoever recommended The Browser to me. A hunt through the blog comments and email yielded no name, so you remain our mystery informant. In March, I wrote here that I felt uneducated, with respect to the world. Everyone gave me great recommendations. Six months later, The Browser has made perhaps the […]

LPC Is At Corporette Today

Never rains but it pours, with guest posting. Today I’m over at Corporette talking about retirement planning. And it’s not the sort you might expect. Although I have to remember, it’s hard to surprise you guys. See you over there, if you’ve got a minute. Share on Facebook Tweet!

LPC Is At The Highland Fashionista Today

I took advantage of my blog break to deliver on some long-delayed commitments. I hate when I fail to do as promised, everything feels off balance, but the world is now back on its axis. As evidence, today I’m over at Kristin’s wonderful blog, Highland Fashionista. I hope you read her, she’s funny and gorgeous, […]

March 13th, 2009, Saturday Morning at 8:05am

As I am off this week, I’m republishing some Saturday posts. This was the first, from back in 2009. It’s Saturday morning. And my son is home from college. My children are grown. They have not a vestige of body fat left on them that I can call my own. Nothing to pinch. I do […]

World Cup From A Middle-Aged Lady’s Perspective, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:48am

Fútbol! World Cup, guys! Are you excited? For many reasons, I find this more fun than any other sportsapalooza. A metric? I’ve installed the GOAL sidebar in Firefox, so I don’t have to wonder which game is being played when. And how come? Personal history, in part. My counterculture high school fielded a soccer team, […]

Generations, Or, Saturday Morning at 6:07am

Pretty much directly after my children came to visit I drove down to Santa Barbara to see my mom. And there we have midlife, in one little sentence. There was no health crisis – this time – but my 3 siblings and I now make sure that Mom and her husband get a visit from […]

Saturday Morning at 8:17am

Thinking this morning about Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370. I suppose there’s still a very slight chance of survivors, but my thoughts go out to all those with loved ones on board.   Share on Facebook Tweet!

Rain, Narrative, Baptism, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:34am

Some facts, and a little associated speculation. It’s finally raining in the Bay Area. Maybe we’ll be able to take showers this summer. Personal hygiene aside, for the fires and the farmers, this is crucial. Perhaps those Polar Vortices will now free the rest of the country? I’ve only got 1.5 episodes of Breaking Bad […]
