Lots of love from the other side of the pool

    • One of the most quotable essays I’ve read on the subject – my love for Kristi Coulter is bordering unhealthy at this point … This for example: “A woman with a single malt scotch is bold and discerning and might fire you from her life if you fuck with her. A woman with a PBR is a Cool Girl who will not be shamed for belching. A woman drinking MommyJuice wine is saying she’s more than the unpaid labor she gave birth to.” Genious. Or this: “Do you remember the Enjoli perfume commercial from the 1970s? The chick who could bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and never let you forget you’re a man?
      I blame that bitch for a lot. For spreading the notion that women should have a career, keep house, and fuck their husbands, when the only sane thing to do is pick two and outsource the third. For making it seem glamorous. For suggesting it was going to be fun. And for the tagline she dragged around: “The 8-Hour Perfume for the 24-Hour Woman.” Just in case you thought you could get one fucking hour off the clock.”

      • Doing well honey, very well. I’m sober and loving it:) Had a blip last week but not giving that any more energy than it deserves. You’re pretty quiet these day how are you?


  1. Thank you for sharing. I love this! I love ” Mindy’s dark alleys were different from mine, but she walked them all the same and walked herself out of them, too. ” I find this as I really connect with people now that I don’t drink. Although others have different challenges than me, we all have dark alleys we must navigate on our own. It is easy to feel “oh why did I get THIS dark alley?” But then I realize I actually can handle this dark alley and it could be worse. 🙂
