The Heal Thy Steff Plan: The Victoria Model v2.0

I try to learn life lessons where I can, but I’m not sure what to glean from spending $95 on a massage, then sleeping on my arm wrong. Sometimes, maybe there isn’t a lesson. Sometimes, maybe life’s just stupid. Ignoring the “Oops, I did it again” sleep and all, the massage was awesome. I’m still in [...]

Riding the Wave: Back at It

It’s been a day filled with plumbing excitement. I returned home last evening to find some other tenant’s mystery filth backed up in my bathroom sink. 18 hours later, it’s as good as new, and was even cleaned by the handyman. A year ago, I’d be waiting for a couple days or more, since, hey, [...]

Getting it Wrong Means Knowing How to Get it Right

The older I get, the more I see the adage of “darkest before dawn” being a truism. A certain Zen-master sensibility takes over as I age whenever the fit really hits the shan. “Oh, wow. A gnarly wave of suckage cresting on the right. Head down, hang on, and pray, woman.” When I had that almost-a-major-setback with [...]

It’s been a long week and you’re probably wondering how it went, given my dreaded Month of Suck admission last week.

Better-Faster-Stronger Steff, Day 1

If ever someone’s mentality was built for Kicking Ass and Taking Names, it’s mine. On the outside, however, I’m more of a tribute to the StayPuft Marshmallow Man. Inside, I’m G.I. Jane (with better writing). Starting now, it’s onto Mission: Outside-Matching-In. I’ve managed to snooker a personal trainer who’s willing to make me into G.I. Jane–Librarian. [...]
