Technical Writer Seeks Agency Producer

So, Todd just shared this article about what agency producers, like, actually DO. (I had to read it, because frankly, sometimes I don’t really know. Just seems like he’s talking on the phone a lot about LA, pitches, clients, costumes, and casting. And monkeys. Or bears. Or craft service. Or Roach Wranglers. Or animatronic mice, […]

Fortunate Child

I love, love, love this article. This is pretty much how I was raised. . . and look how I turned out. Seriously, though – the stories I was told by family members, combined with the books I read, (Okay, and maybe one very real love story and apocalyptic breakup) made me very much the […]

That was a rough one

I write about a lot of different stuff on Dogwood Girl. One of the things I write about is what it’s like to live in an SEC mixed marriage. In a word, it’s hard. You love your spouse, you love your team. You have many, many friends on both sides of the ball. No matter […]

Tills was a black cat, Rollie was Freddie Kreuger – No, he hasn’t seen A Nightmare on Elm Street, but he saw a Freddy Kreuger fight some aging wrestler at Six […]

Even 20 Years Later

Yeah, long week. And yeah, that was me walking up the street in flip flops, my shorts, pj top, no bra, carrying a bottle of wine i mooched off my awesome neighbors because I went to the store to get wine, came home with US weekly, bad red box movies, and ice cream, but forgot […]

Here. Have a Sevin with your beer.

This photo pretty much sums up my childhood. Dad keeps the Sevin dust (for his tomatoes) on top of the guest mini-fridge in the basement. “Here, have a beer and sprinkle this around.” Then you paint some stuff for him. “Oh, yeah, that’s oil-based. Let me pour some gasoline on ya. Here’s this dirty old […]

Simplicity

I fight to keep my kids away from the tv. Even when we are at the lake, with all of nature around us. So today, I finally said, turn off the tv. We’re going fishing. We did it old school. We walked around the whole cove. We stopped to poke sticks in ant hills. We […]
