Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, and now living in a small town on the coast of Oregon. I have a passion for reading, writing, being a mom, ranting, sarcasm, indulging my amateur survivalist husband, rescuing shelter dogs, and enjoy a healthy dose of reality T.V. shows. I live by a Hunter S. Thompson quote, “Buy the ticket, take the ride.”

I started this blog to have an outlet to fully release sarcasm, satire, dark humor, light humor and to have a place where I can randomly rant until my heart’s content. Plus, writing just makes me all giddy inside, and I have a secret desire to make people giggle. And sometimes I just like to tell a story.

UPDATE: I took a lot of time off from this blog and I think it’s time to give it some attention. I might delete the above description or I might just leave it, but I’ve come back to California and an all new adventure has begun…

Shit’s about to get real and raw up in here…

Humorous To Heinous: Cause life is funny/not funny at the same time. Also refer to Erma Bombeck quote.

When I was 17 a not so nice boy called me a mud duck. I had never heard the term before but I knew it was some sort of insult. Basically, he meant it as someone no one wants to be around cause their deemed unattractive. So yeah he was calling me ugly and letting me know him and his friends didn’t want to bone me. But he went on to say that him and friends didn’t even want me to hang around when my own friends were hanging out with them. (What the hell were my friends doing hanging out with douchebags, right?) If you look this phrase up now in the urban dictionary you’ll find several different definitions. I suppose in a way I’ve always felt like a mud duck: not good enough, unworthy, unwanted, and yeah sometimes ugly.

Mud duck: A female with less than admirable attributes

“There is a thin line that separates laughter and pain, comedy and tragedy, humor and hurt.” ~ Erma Bombeck – AMEN

    • Well, you know, it’s either laugh or cry sometimes, and I would rather laugh. I find when dealing with an upsetting emotion or when generally just irritated if you let go of the emotion, either through talking, or writing it out, lets even say in a rant, that humor will ninja its way in there somehow. This may not be true for everyone of course, but I seek out humor no matter how sad or angry I am. For example: My family recently got over a heinous stomach flu, but we were able to better deal with it finding the humor, and making each other laugh. I also don’t always have to “rant” to find humor, but that’s what some of my blog posts turn into.
