ANOTHER INSTALLMENT!! Alright, boys and girls, the result of the survey (here and by email) have yielded two main contenders. So we’re down to two titles PLUS another one I’ve just added. This should be an easier pick as there are fewer entries. Help me out! I want your opinions! 1. Life in a Tidal […]

SURVEY!!!! Please continue answering the question from my previous entry, but as you think about that, can you think about this too? I’m working on something that needs a title–an interesting, curiosity-arousing title–and I’m not sure which of the following is best. Can you read through the options and tell me which one would MOST […]

Fiona asked a great question! She wanted *me* to answer it, but I’d like to hear your opinions first: why the heck is it that MKs usually want to marry other MKs? I know you’ve got some ideas about that, so let them rip! Back in Germany on the 25th…counting the days while 6 French […]

My friend Eenie, who is famous for being among the four BFA boys who caused 10 German police officers (guns drawn) to surround my apartment, told me it was time to update. Actually, he didn’t so much TELL me as SUGGEST it, but a well-placed “You think it’s time to update?” is just as effective […]

I just read an article online about the funeral for Luther Vandross. He’s a singer most of you younger readers will have never heard about, but he was a pretty hot commodity during the 80’s (don’t hate me for showing my age!). His chief attribute was being able to curl your toes and singe your […]

A friend (who shall remain nameless) just informed me that she has finally experienced her first kiss! That might seem like an inane thing to you, but if you knew my friend, you’d realize that this is tantamount to Elvis still being alive or a football player winning a Nobel prize. You see, my friend […]

In case you’re bored and would like to expand your knowledge and understanding of one of the world’s most courageous women, the Corrie Ten Boom book you need to order and READ is: “The Hiding Place”. And Ahram, no–I don’t think I’ll tell you. But I’ll gladly interact with you if you have questions unrelated […]

RebLyner wrote: “Here’s one for abby:¬† how does a woman remain strong¬†yet not dominant, vulnerable yet not “mousy”?” Her question made the nun in me go “Hmm” and instantly brought to mind some of the more “strong AND vulnerable” women who have impacted this world. Women like Mother Theresa, Corrie Ten Boom, and, on a […]
