Getting away with shit

The down side of being a middle-aged, white female is that you are invisible. Clerks step on your foot on their way to help younger customers. Nobody suspects or accuses you of doing anything exciting or illicit. You become your own mom.

So I let it work for me.

When you're stereotyped, it's amazing what shit you can get away with.

One year - I think Al Gore was running for president - there was a big rally at the… Continue

Drag Racing on Montgomery

So I live with Montgomery Boulevard as my backyard--literally there's the back of the house, a postage stamp-sized backyard, a wall, sidewalk, berm--and then 6 lanes of Montgomery Boulevard. I live on Drag Race Alley--the stretch between Juan Tabo and Tramway. Other than the rarely changing light at Cairo in front of El Dorado High School--it's a straight shot all the way to Tramway from Juan Tabo.

Drag Race Alley impacts significantly the quality of life for every residential… Continue

Cool Cars in ABQ

I've been thinking a lot about cars lately. We can't avoid the gas price news and I can't avoid the 4-month Prius waiting list. Or my current PT Cruiser giving up the ghost (hopefully just temporarily) and sitting like a silver toad in the driveway covered with elm sap and wind dust - unable (or unwilling) to start.

Route 66 - the ultimate ribbon of shrine to the automobile - cuts right through the middle of our fair city. Welcome to the… Continue

Albuquerque - Jamaican Me Angry!

Ok, I'm sorry to those of you who read this and know me in real life but Albuquerqians - Jamaican Me Angry!

I have not bothered to ride a bike in our great Duke City for quite some time on the basis that at 12 years old you are unable to protect yourself from 2 undeniable sources of harm: The Law and Everyone Else.

First of all, the Law does not allow for bikers to ride on sidewalks because bicycles are considered motorized vehicles. Yeah, at the athletic age of 12 at… Continue

This morning as we here at Popejoy listened to the orchestra rehearsing the music from Monty Python’s Spamalot we got to wondering… how the heck did Spamalot get its name? And how did it become such a part of the Monty Python world?

You probably know that SPAM is a canned “shoulder pork and ham/spiced ham” pork product made by the Hormel Food Corporation. SPAM, like most other luncheon meats is precooked, but is also often pan-fried or heated… Continue

We're Geeks and We Drink

And win! After faithful weekly attendance at Geeks Who Drink each Monday night, my fellow Know It All Posse teammate and I finally won the evening. Knowing a lot about Billy Joel songs, the history of various corporations and which business logos are which certainly helped. Our prize? These groovy deluxe cowboy wallets.

To make the night even sweeter, I won the super secret email question. Behold the power of bacon.
