Cancer Cancel and Vice Versa

A few month ago I came across this article You May Want To Marry My Husband by Amy Kruse Rosenthal No wonder the word cancer and cancel look so similar and it took me. It took me and turned me and twisted me and turned me upside down and inside out. I know what this woman means….

Pandora Box Question – One Woman Forever

Dear Diary, I am asking questions again. This time I am asking a very pandoresque one of my male friends… You know, there are millions and millions of questions in our lives. Some of them are easy and require ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer. Some of the questions are more complex and may call for essays,…

Old Scars – New Pain

Dear Diary, I let you in a on a secret. Well, it is not a secret. It is something people prefer not to talk about even if stares them in the face. It stares them from my face…   I am a Cleftie. I was born with cleft lip and cleft palate. I went through…

Thoughts of the day: Thursday

Dear Diary, Here is my bit for today. Trust me. It happens to the best of us. My initial thought was to turn around and go back home for my mobile (cell phone). However, I was running late already and decided not to do it (Hindsight is a tricky thing. I should have gone home)….

Без-советно. Часть Первая

Один из моих друзей на Фейсбук повесил сегодня с утра пораньше такой пост Не ждите неприятностей.

(Pre) Post 21st March
