On The Wedding Photographer

"Oh, Gary, I'm so glad we made sure our photographer knew to take many dozens of photos of my shoes in a dusty sunbeam, and our rings balanced on a single blade of grass, and really committed to including a lens flare in every single image no matter what."

"Yes, Elaine, thank goodness we don't have one of those weird, non-artsy wedding albums full of pictures of our family and friends."

"Truly the best multi-thousand-dollar purchase of our married life!"

On "The Grind"

I like this a lot. Although it took me two reads to realize it rhymed...wooo Friday brain.

On Grateful for Coworkers, Even Eric

Last week, I helped one of my coworkers with something - extremely simple, that took maybe 5 seconds, but she'd never done it before and was swamped and didn't have time to figure it out - and she brought me flowers the next day to say thanks (in addition to actually saying thanks)! It was very sweet and unexpected.

On I Dreamed of Being a Plus-Sized J.C. Penney Catalog Model

My dad - who in general is great, though I can count on one finger the number of times he's told me I was pretty - once took me out for ice cream, and when I went to town on the thing, making a total mess of myself, screeched, "don't you have any PRIDE?!" I was maybe 4 or 5 at the time. He doesn't remember it happening...but I sure do.
