Feature Friday - Michele Van Kleef

Michele is an incredibly talented singer songwriter from the great pacific northwest. Click on her picture to be whisked away to her website to take a listen to her incredimazingness while I brag about this chick for a minute.

Why am I introducing you to her? Well, for one, she's a great artist and needs to be heard. The second reason is because the two of us are teaming up to put on a kick-ass show at Malibu's in downtown Vancouver, WA on June 29.

Tip-Off Thursday - Turning Off Your Brain

It's been an hour. You have an early morning. And you're still wide awake. Your body is in that beautiful relaxed state, ready to rest for the next 7-9 hours, but your brain has a different plan.

You: Brain. Stop. Seriously.
Brain: No. Remember that time you said that totally embarrassing thing to that really cute guy?
You: Yes. Ugh. I hate it when I do that!
Brain: I know. It's like that other time that your high school crush saw the note to your best friend about how hot he is, and how you want to have his babies. Remember?
You: Seriously? Ugh. Great I just spent 10 years getting that out of my mind. Thanks.
Brain: 10 years? Wow. I wonder how he's doing? Do you think he's married? Maybe he'd be willing to take you up on your offer now...speaking of offers....did you get that report done at work?
You: Crap. I left it on my desk. Great. At least it's not due until tomorrow.
Brain: Well, did you remember to add the sales forecast? Oh! Speaking of forecast, do you know what you're wearing tomorrow? Is it supposed to rain? How's your family doing? Oh! Tomorrow's your brother's birthday. Did you wrap his gift?

Throw Back Thursday - Word To Your Papas!

Last month we had a special Throwback to Mom’s, this month it’s a special throwback to Dad’s.

Now, I have two men to talk about here. One with whose genetics helped make my existence something other than divine, and the other who has helped me value my mother in my adulthood the way she deserves to be valued.
