Produce Porn

Get your minds out of the gutter. I belong to a local food bank, so I can supplement my groceries. It’s hit or miss, but today was a hit! Bins were overflowing with fresh & colorful produce from local gardens, as well as fresh breads. They said dig in, so I took the opportunity since…

Silver Arrow

Hopelessly romantic and weary to the bone, the man ran off without his last chance to be with his very own.

Sex Drive – Riding Shotgun

The recipe for memorable road trips call for certain ingredients – good company, great music, majestic views, spontaneous spirits and plenty of belly laughs. Then there are the road trips that go down in history. The only difference between the two is the additional naughty dose of sexual mischief in the car, sprinkled on to taste. Shake or pour, it doesn’t even matter, because if done right, it usually ends up in spontaneous marriage proposals on the side of the road.

Color-Safe Bleach

I need color-safe bleach for my brain to erase the last 6 months of my life. And he’d ask, “why color-safe?” And I’d reply, “Because … I’d like to remember you.”

Unsolicited Food Porn

Ah, unsolicited food porn – slightly less offensive than the unsolicited dick pic. Slightly. It’s a little known fact that my friend takes hilariously pathetic photos of food. He doesn’t even do it on purpose, it just comes naturally. He should really start an online catalog. Oh wait, we already have Instagram. Funniest thing about…

Pimp My Ramen

On a roll today! I’m a big fan of using miscellaneous ingredients I have on hand to spice up dull recipes online. Don’t forget, no polished dish is complete without its very own selfie! Make your food feel pretty. Take pimped-up photos, preferably with leopard or zebra print backgrounds, and upload them to Instagram, shamelessly. Happily…

Pimp My Toast

Aside from being and artist and writer, I’m actually a pretty good cook. No, this isn’t a dating profile. 😉 I’m just excited to have something to do that I enjoy, that doesn’t involve alcohol. Cooking is a good sign that things are going in a positive direction for me and speaks volumes about my…

Juried Art Exhibition – Mental Health Awareness

I just got home from selecting and pricing my past artwork for a juried art exhibition taking place in October at Norristown State Hospital. My work will be displayed in an art exhibition featuring pieces from mental health agencies across the area, including Philadelphia. I’m honored & excited to take part in a great cause…

Psych Ward Shenanigans

It helps to have a kick-ass roomate who is just as stirctly left-brained as you are right. That fact alone transformed two furiously unstable bipolar chicks into a powerhouse of creativity, proficiency and hilarity, resulting in wickedly-timed shenanigans that we’d liked to believe played a role in the head psychiatrist’s resignation.

I’ve had many SMH moments this year. I’m pretty open about having Bipolar and Alcoholism, mostly because I see the potential in the disorder and I see beauty in continued recovery from a disease. But not many see that, as I’ve come to find. I need to err on the side of caution. I’m sure…

Pickled Through the Process.

Ya know, I’m really not one to advocate for or glorify antipsychotic medication. Most people know that about me by now. I’ve been burnt badly, as many of us living with mental illness have. But it just dawned on me that I had a med change three weeks ago and I cannot discount that as…

Reset

It’s 49° this morning and it’s the first time in a long time that I’ve felt motivated. This summer was a total bitch. Weather really affects my mood, more so than I thought. I used to walk to the bar to simply get a ice cold glass of water and I’d stay to (accidentally) drink…
