Among my boss's (many) verbal tics is her tendency to say that someone is trying to "dog me out" or "dog us out," by which she means that somebody is trying to blame her or us for something, or get her in trouble with the higher-ups, or to call into question the quality of our work.

I had to pick this up from context, because despite being a well-traveled 40 year old man, she is the very first human being I have EVER heard use this expression. And she uses it all the time, because she unfortunately lives her professional life in a sort of permanent paranoid defensive crouch where at least 50 percent of the world is out to get her.

Has anyone else ever heard this expression? Because she uses it like it's just something that normal people frequently say.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

Take a break from the politics and check out our pumpkins for this year. My girls are all in there 20's and this is one of the things that we still get together and enjoy and have some laughs.

Politics aside Please blow me up if I'm wrong. The Girl Scouts an organization that teaches young women independence and furtherment gets cancelled and forced to take down a tweet congratulating Justice Barrett. A woman who did her job so well she reached the ultimate goal. Unbelievable. Bridget is right as usual they are dissapesring women. Put that tweet back up and I'll mortage my house and buy a semiload of cookies
