I usually feel like I’m not taking enough advantage of weekends—especially the long ones—but I sure did my best with this one.   Thursday: Last day of the work week, and […]

Bullet Points

Abandon narrative structure; cohesion overboard!   By Hannah Wallace   First off, the MRI results didn’t reveal anything. Mild mild arthritis and softening of the cartilage, but nothing that seemed to be A) the cause of the problem, or B) fixable. I turn now to a brilliant doc who plays hockey with us to see […]

Wounded Knee

An old injury comes back to haunt me.   By Hannah Wallace   Thirty years old and falling apart.   OK, not really. But for all my sporty activities, I’ve been hampered by a few nagging injuries lately—tennis elbow from, oddly, hockey; an old rotator cuff injury from high school now re-aggravated by boxing—but none […]

Summertime Sickness

I’ll endure a cold now, but just because there’s lots of fun on the horizon.   By Hannah Wallace   This always happens: Right when the temperature spikes, I’m guaranteed to get a cold and be all stuffy and sniffly and exhausted.

We talk about weight as much as we talk about the weather, and you can’t change the weather. You just have to dress accordingly.   By Hannah Wallace   I consider myself pretty fortunate when it comes to body issues. Sure, there are parts of my body I’m not wild about (big cheeks, eyebrow-o-rama, tiny […]

So far my venture into a new decade is pretty freakin’ awesome.   By Hannah Wallace   Thanks so much for all the warm birthday wishes. It was great to see so many friends Saturday night and hear from so many more over the course of the weekend. (For those of you who couldn’t make […]

The Big Three-Oh

Starting a whole new decade.   By Hannah Wallace   “Age is something that doesn’t matter, unless you are a cheese.” Billie “Glenda the Good Witch” Burke   Don’t get me wrong; I don’t actually think turning 30 is that big a deal. I didn’t designate that signpost; but it’s still a signpost, one that […]

Laugh It Up

Sushi, celebrities, frozen yogurt, McCurdy’s and more.   By Hannah Wallace     So check out how jam-packed with Sarasota-osity my Friday night was: Big J, Little J, CCB and I met up after work at Utamaro for some nori and unagi.

Championship Weekend

All that was missing from this weekend was the trophy.   By Hannah Wallace   Well, it’s a wonderfully stormy Monday morning—flooded 41 and violent firmament included.
