Are We as Bad as Men?

Don’t you hate it when a man explains Man-Splanning. It reminds me that we still have work to do. Women can be just as bad. At a meeting the other day, we were discussing medicines and a new lady in the group was contributing some solid, interesting facts, and then another women turns to her and asks, “Are you a nurse?” She replied, “No, I’m a doctor.” Maybe we should get our ducks in a row before Read more of this blog post »

“The powerful chords that emanated from the radio heated me from the inside out, like a microwave.”
Sandy Ward Bell, In Zoey's Head

“Upright, she's slapped with the aroma of musk and sweat. It's the good hunky, 'shirtless man building a dollhouse for his daughter' kind of perspiration, not the 'he just mowed the lawn' kind of stench.”
Sandy Ward Bell, Parked at the Mansfields'

“I take my food very seriously. Whenever I hear that bell, I know Mrs. Norris is hankerin' for some spam.”
Sandy Ward Bell, Parked at the Mansfields'

“We have all a better guide in ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be.”
Jane Austen, Mansfield Park

“I want that Easter Ham. Where's my Thanksgiving Turkey?" Miss Trixie snarled”
John Kennedy Toole, A Confederacy of Dunces

“The difference between literature and journalism is that journalism is unreadable and literature is not read.”
Oscar Wilde, Miscellaneous Aphorisms; The Soul of Man

“Books say: She did this because. Life says: She did this. Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren't. I'm not surprised some people prefer books. Books make sense of life. The only problem is that the lives they make sense of are other people's lives, never your own.”
Julian Barnes, Flaubert's Parrot

“The powerful chords that emanated from the radio heated me from the inside out, like a microwave.”
Sandy Ward Bell, In Zoey's Head
