My site is usually full of many angry, cuss-filled rants about travel. Occasionally, though, I am lucky enough to write about good things as they pertain to the travel community. Today is one of those days, and frankly, this news warms the brittle lump of coal that is my heart. I was recently asked to…

Folks, I have news. Crazy exciting news. Well, perhaps not crazy, but exciting nevertheless. I mean, I hope you will find it exciting … GOD, can I do anything without rambling? Evidently not. Anyway, where was I? Oh, yeah – the news. I’ve started a new blog all about copywriting.  I wanted a place to…

This was my first full week at home in ages, and I got to do all the things one dreams about while on the road: cooking elaborate meals in your own kitchen. Picking out clothing from a seemingly endless selection. Driving places and knowing exactly where you’re going. I suppose it’s not that big a…

I am a ball of frenetic energy this morning, folks (note to self: stop snorting Pixie Stix. Really). So I hope you’ll forgive me if I can’t sit down long enough to type a coherent post, but instead I offer you pictures! Lots of pictures! 1. Union Oyster House at night. – 2. Ask not…

It’s been a bit serious here on the blog over the last few days, and it seems a bit of levity is in order. After all, it can all be nudity and violation of inner sanctums, can it? No, no. Sometimes we need to throw a bit of idiocy into the mix, too. I was…

Happy Guy Fawkes Day, kids. In celebration of today, I strongly suggest you do not take it upon yourselves to overthrow any existing governments, because frankly, that sounds like a lot of work, and, well, it’s Friday. Even a Funemployed girl like myself understands the importance of a Friday. Besides, if you’re like me (and…

  • When People Are Nice To Me, I Find It Profoundly Confusing: The Geraldine DeRuiter Story.

We had a lovely dinner with some folks based here in Quebec, and they also gave me cupcakes, and it was all lovely and confusing because I am a nightmare of a human.
  • I went to a stunning library in Quebec City today - the Maison de la litterature was once an old church, and now it is full of books and winding staircases.
  • He complained that we were old, and I told him that we had maybe five more minutes of being young and beautiful, so let's enjoy them. Here they are.
  • It's below freezing in Quebec, and I'm fairly certain everything is haunted, but people are politely enduring my terrible French and there is poutine everywhere, so ... win?
  • Just rummaged through my office, looking for a notebook so I could write down some ideas for my next big project. I opened up this one and found a handwritten draft of the intro to my last book. #thisisagoodsignright
  • Look, just because I rolled a snickerdoodle in curry powder doesn't mean I'm a domestic goddess. Domestic demigoddess? Maybe.
  • Bye-bye, San Diego. It's been ... surprisingly cold, actually. But thanks for the Vitamin D.
  • That'll do, San Diego. That'll do. #tacotacotaco
  • Why, yes, my PJs do feature a cartoon version on my husband of them.
  • When you forget your keys, and the best houseguest ever brings them to you (but makes sure you aren't going to live this down.)

All Over The Place

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
