Remember the Time…we had important news AND a writing prompt?

Good morning, Remember the Timers! (Isn’t that so much better than Nostalgiaphiles?) I know you guys absolutely luuuuuurve tuning in on Monday for these posts where I dictate what you are going to write about this week, but all good elective mandates must come to an end. This is the last Monday RTT post you […]

That Starbucks

This is a post about the little things that we find to be big things. The older I get, the more I am amazed by the persistence of mundane, trivial aspects I remember from the chapters in my life. For instance, at my dad’s funeral, I remember my aunt giving me a small bottle of […]

Remember the Time…Wild Card Volume II

Happy Monday, nostalgiphiles! Is it OK if I call you that? Is there a preexisting word that describes partakers in the realm of throwback? Please tell me there is because my ability to coin terms is obviously not the biggest thing I have going right now. We wouldn’t want Kelly to have to take me […]

Why Horses Scare Me: Redux

My mom is here visiting this week and I don’t have a lot of time to write, so I am trotting out a super old post about my fear of horses that I wrote a couple years ago. I only mention this because I reference pregnancy and not being a parent in the post, and […]

Remember the Time…we got really scared?

You had to have seen this one coming. It’s October, and the stores that know what’s up are stocked with candy and costumes that make even the most innocent objects sultry (sexy paperclip, anyone?). Some stores are already getting ready for Christmas, but this is not the blog that you need to be reading if […]

To Dr. O, With Love

A couple summers ago, I was tasked with coming up with a toast for Besfrinn’s wedding. At the time, I was swimming laps a lot at a local pool. Each day leading up to the wedding, I would backstroke and think about what I could say that would pay tribute to this incredible person who […]

Remember the Time…we had that teacher?

If life is a play, then the teachers we’ve known through the years play starring roles. They are sometimes the characters who come into our lives unobtrusively but end up inspiring us to be better people and to look at the world in a whole new light. They do so, miraculously, by illuminating something as […]

You Got the Pink Stuff, Baby.

It has come to my attention that there is a little confusion over what exactly a salad is. I have always thought of it as lettuce with maybe some cucumbers or tomatoes punctuating the leaves, and then dressing like ranch or thousand island doused on top. It’s a straightforward, healthy(ish) dish whose presence on your […]

Remember the Time…we made the food?

An alternative title to this week’s Remember the Time prompt could be “Remember the Time…Emily put recipes on her blog?” Those were some good ol’ days, back when I had time to actually cook new, interesting things and then work up enough enthusiasm to write posts about them. The last time I posted a recipe […]

Losin’ It to Celine Dion

Given the ubiquity of wide-legged jeans that I owned in high school, it may come as a surprise that my first concert was not the traditional rocking fare. REM came to my town when I was in eighth grade, but their show was on a school night so I wouldn’t be attending per the (fairly […]
