    The End.

    Whew! It’s over. Colorado Pole Championship 2014 has come and gone. The most prevalent question is always, “Did you win?”  The answer: no, in a trophy or medal way, I didn’t. But in so many other ways, yes, yes I did. To my fellow Masters Division competitors, THANK YOU! You ladies made this experience so much less stressful and so much more enjoyable with your compassion, love, and understanding. Even though medals and trophies separate us, we still stood together (or leaned on our wheeled walkers together) in support for one another. I can be almost 100% certain that this is not how all competitions go, so I am oh…

    ROCO Friday – More Than Skin Deep

    How well do you really know the woman who stands before you (or sits behind this keyboard as the case may be)? Some of you haven’t known me for all that long, so it’s natural, but there are a select few of you who have known me for more than a decade, some for more than two decades, and some for practically all of our lives. And in that time, what have you learned? Not a lot, probably, because, believe it or not, I’m private about stuff. Today, for your Friday present, you get a peek inside my head. Yes, it’s a present, like from Jason Voorhees. Leggo. Do you…

    Only funny at home

    I love my daughter.  I love my boyfriend.  I love the bonds that we share.  Stories that are told in our house are somehow only funny to us because we get each other.  That, my friends, is love.  Or there's something funny in the air at home. Read and post comments | Send to a friend

    You're pretty…

    …for a black girl. Someone actually said that to me once.  It was many years ago, and while it stung a little then, if someone said that to me today, chances are great that I would punch said someone square in the mouth. Who are you to judge what's pretty and why would the standards be different for different races? Today, I've come to the conclusion that I don't care.  America, your standards of beauty are no longer important to me.  Fuck you.  I'm pretty whether it's to me, my boyfriend, some random construction worker, or you America, with your stuck up ideals and your fucked up morals.  I'm not…

    It's just WEDNESDAY!!

    So it happens to also be February 14.  So what?  Just so we're clear, this is not a day for love just because Hallmark says so.  Many other things have happened on this day, and plenty of them were violent. Look, don't get me wrong.  Businesses need to make money, keep the economy strong, blah, blah, blah.  But why is it such a big deal to show your love on this day?  Do you not love your spouse/sig. other every other day of the year?  I do.  I love him every day.  I tell him every day.  And that's why today is just Wednesday.  I told him not to waste…
