The Freshly Pressed Curse

Hey, kids! It's time once again for me to interview myself! Y'know....(ahem) because no one else wanted to. The last time I sat down with myself for an exclusive interview, things got cray-cray up in Darla's hizzle when an enraged Maineiac toppled the kitchen table à la Desperate Housewife Teresa "The Feds Are Only Jealz of My Fame" …

Unexplained Mysteries of My Universe (Part 2): Blog Anniversary

Explain to me how is it possible that when I was 11, I was earning money babysitting, while my son at the same age can't figure out how to make toast? Explain to me how when you're walking on the side of the road, every car that whizzes past you is a jackass, yet when you're …

My Exclusive Interview With Me About My Blog

Greetings, fellow bloggers, non-bloggers, readers and non-readers! Today I bring to you an in-depth interview I did with...myself. Yes! And they say blogging is narcissistic.

Le Clown Visits Maine…and Never Leaves

Le Clown, author of the hugely popular and super-duper magical blog, A Clown on Fire, recently asked if he could drop by my fair state for a quick visit -- maybe chow down on a few hot-buttered lobster rolls or share a shot of blueberry maple syrup. Naturally, I jumped at the chance. A clown? In Stephen King's home …

On Blogging

Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be bloggers

(The following is my typical inner dialogue seconds after I wake up.) Wha--? Who? Where....?  Oh, god. Why. Why?  Dear lord, why? Why must I wake up? And always at the wrong time! Brad Pitt and George Clooney were inviting me to become their new hot sidekick because only I can infiltrate the Bellagio and crack open the vault using my razor-sharp …
