As with the advent, and subsequent hyper-overuse of emoticons, I was at first resistant to the trend of using a “period” between every word for emphasis. However I now fully embrace the use of these non-verbal intonations.
In fact, I’m a bit of a ;) slut, but it’s only because I have so many amazingly wonderful online contacts who have me wanting to throw winks their way like a saucy southern flight attendant.
So, rock the drama of a period. Between. each. word. But don’t incessantly use the 90s dramatic buzz word “surreal“, the Anistonized “uncool” or hurl the most played-out, contemporary comfort phrase of our time, “no worries“, at me. Ever.
Your OMGs, LOLs, and esp. your LMFAOs are always welcome! xo
And p.s. I ain’t no English major, but I KNOW a lot of y’all join me in going batty over this one:
ICYMI: Capitol City New Mexico recently landed spot no. 16 on GQ’s Worst-Dressed Cities List.
Not so dubious considering that the top 40 boasts basically one city or major metro from almost every state in the nation, including San Diego, CA, Orlando, FL, Buffalo, NY, St. Paul, MN, Detroit, MI save Texas who seems true tops with at least 3 major cities named…
So sits Santa Fe New Mexico sandwiched between Atlanta, GA and Provo, UT.
Fresh on the heels of that prestigious recognition, comes a native take on some of our own.
From the makers of the Palin/Brewer line of vocational toys (not really) comes the New Mexico Inspired line of “Barbies”:
Local Attorney Jonathan Miller has not one but five thrillers now available on Amazon.com.
Pick-up one or all five today to get a taste of what the Albuquerque Journal calls “…the next John Grisham.”
Keep-up with the New Mexican Author/Attorney at Law on Facebook here and most of all seek out local talent at every turn – you will find it.
As we did find local wife, mommy and communications conglomerate exec. Lisa Paz. Lisa is every woman, nay every parent. We fell in love with her on a rare night out for the working mom. We found her spectacular, charming and funny – a true inspiration.
Most of us know it yet not all of us talk about it – parenting is hard, especially if you’re doing it right. In the web log of Lisa’s subtly mind-blowing realizations she chronicles all the nutty haps that turn a world upside down at the drop of potty bucket. We’ll go ahead and dub her the next Dave Barry.
Along with her humorous take she reminds us of two very important things:
1. This stuff is hilarious and not for sissies – amateurs need not apply.
2. Other parents can rest assured that they are not alone in their daily absurdities – and it’s all so worth it.
In summation, if you’ve got the luxury of carving out a little time to cuddle-up with a thriller by the fire we say go New Mexican and check out Miller.
And if you find yourself too frazzled to follow several sentences in a row just hit send, send, send on every publishers inbox requesting that our home-town sister gets herself a book deal – because that’s a read you need!

UPDATE 12/5/11: GOP front runner for the Republican nomination into the 2012 presidential race, New Gingrich has put forward his concept of child labor law reform, stating that poor kids with “no work ethic” should be scrubbing school bathrooms:
“What if they became assistant janitors and their jobs were to mop the floor and clean the bathroom?”
Toddlers in training play-sets from the Brewer Palin pre-school of menial labor. Where the heart of an immigrant work-force can eventually be phased out.

Tis the season (it comes earlier every year)…from Christmas, to New Year’s Eve straight through to Valentine’s Day she may be anxiously awaiting “The Ring”. Those are the top three dates when she will be anticipating the possibility of “The Ring”.
You are also treading the waters of expectation around your anniversary and her birthday – No matter if she says she’s not that kind of girl, she swears she doesn’t need it or want it, EVEN if you’ve agreed on not going in that direction anytime soon…
I personally guarantee from approx. 3 months into the relationship on – it crosses at least a teeny-tiny portion of her mind now and then AND “The Ring” industry knows this. Notice the amped up ads, they will keep churning out from the aforementioned time through at least Valentine’s day. Good luck.
1. A ring is always a nice gift – you don’t have to propose à la ABC’s Bachelor.
2. There is a Recession going on right now, so you can lean on that to conserve on rock size.
3. Just rent ‘Blood Diamond‘
All my Single Ladies,
We’ve all known, do know or will know a charming guy. Most apt to seek out and be wounded by a charming guy are those of us fathered by one.
Their prowess in “charm” has likely been honed over many years and many women. Sure they know the coolest places to go and can be fun at parties – but believe me, charm a solid partner does not make.
Lesson Learned – Charming means, “I’m cheating on you.”
Because we’re lazy like this and eat like that…
Here is one of the best blogs of all time. It will either drive you to binge eat or it will act as a visual laxative. In either or both cases it should come with a disclaimer like the now infamous hot cup of NM coffee that spawned a million dollar lawsuit and absurd disclaimers the world over, so as not to be blamed for someone’s case of gorge and/or trots.
If the above is your idea of a food pyramid and if you shout Eureka! with the advent of the 3in1 laundry sheet that frees you from the mental workout of filling a measuring scoop and the laborious chore of dispensing some type of fabric softener during your pesky laundering duties then these are the products for you!
