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

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

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

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

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.
