    So two shrinks walk into a bar. How does that make you feel?

    Cue rim shot. Thank you, thank you. OK, seriously (we say that a lot in Seattle, evidently). I have been planning to share about this group I am a part of but I didn't really know how to talk about it here. But I think the time is right and really...

    I'm predicting surgery (and I welcome it)

    I'm super sick of going to the doctor. My sinus issues are going on week 6, I think? Done the antibiotics, multiple boxes of Tylenol Sinus, cough syrup, Nasonex. I think they call this chronic sinusitis (that's my best guess). I looked on Web MD and I...

    How to answer the uncomfortable resume question "why did you leave this employer?" when the decision wasn't exactly yours

    • 7 Comments
    Ah, it happens to the best of us. Let me just say that when I was in high school, Waldenbooks HATED me. HATED! Fortunately, I didn't have to put my many high school jobs on my resume (you might be surprised at some of the jobs I did). Anyway, if you have...

    The state of the economy and what I get paid to do

    • 7 Comments
    So aside from my personal annoyance with the news reports about the economy (I have some very specific things I want to do with my money once the stock market rebounds), you may wonder if the economy has any impact on the world of Heather (or HeatherLeigh...

    I've stopped dating guys with cats

    • 3 Comments
    Because of those experiences, I can tell you, with almost absolute certainty, that this guy had it coming: See more funny videos and TBT Videos at Today's Big Thing . Besides, to me, it looked like he started it.

    Attention youngsters: you have many years of acting like a jackass in front of you.

    OK, so now I can talk about my trip to Chicago a few weeks ago. I learned a big lesson about allergies and pre-medication. But all that didn't really set in until I had finished the debauchery portion of my trip. I'm still pretty sure that driving through...

    File under "disturbing for the holidays"

    • 2 Comments
    It would have been slightly less disturbing if they weren't all lined up like a buffet (and if some of them weren't passed out like they just took a shot of Nyquil). Hat tip to Defamer Speaking of which, my new "thing" is the best TV show...

    Veal meet sunlight. Well, kind of.

    OK, ok. I am a sucky blogger. I guess I have been pre-occupied. The reign of the month-long hacking cough is coming to an end. I braved the third world waiting room (no offense to the third world) of the urgent care office to get some meds. When I told...

    Four things

    • 5 Comments
    Having not been at my best lately (health-wise....feeling much better now), mail and responsibilities stack up. The world of work doesn't stop just because I'm sleeping off an illness (or coughing up a lung, irrigating my sinuses, etc.). Managing my...

    I don't want to hear that Microsoft is uncool ever again. To my knowledge, no Microsoft employees were involved in the making of THIS: Anyway, I tried to imagine one of us, OK me, bopping around my friend's rich daddy's house in a bathing...

    To celebrate Halloween, I'm bleeding

    • 6 Comments
    I didn't think about the timing when I set the appointment, but today when I give blood, I am going to officially think of it as a Halloween celebration. So it's strategic bleeding. As much as I love Halloween, I don't do much. I have never been the...

    Putting an end to the crap mail and phone books

    • 10 Comments
    I'm trying to cut down on the paper that gets delivered to my house (Free Sunday Seattle Times? No, thanks). I think I already blogged about CatalogChoice , which has greatly reduced the number of catalogs I receive (though Victoria's Secret is relentless...
