Cruising (or not) MomentumCon

I feel like starting with a little history first, for those who are new to my site, or new to my blog. Basically, if you weren’t on the very old site, or my defunct janeduvall.com, you’d know nothing of my poly history.
From about 1997 through 2003, I identified as poly. Ah, labels. I suppose [...]

and in other news

Now that I’m back from vacation and trying to settle back into a routine, I think I’ll probably finally get time for other projects. It’s always something, but the most recent ones were training for a triathlon in 2007/2008, and then opening and running a retail shop from 2008 until early this spring.
So what is [...]

the next best thing after Fifi

In other news of my recent life: I finally broke down and hired a cleaning service for home.
I cannot tell you how much this has drastically changed my mood. It was such a long time coming, because basically I had to admit to myself that I was failing at doing everything, and that it [...]

a light at the end of the tunnel

Sometimes I think the worst thing that can happen to a relationship is to work together. Playing together is great, working together not so much. Especially when you’re self-employed.
A few years ago, Elliott had an awesome office manager/personal assistant, Fifi. (I am not making up the name – she went by Fifi, although she [...]

blogging isn’t dead

For someone who hasn’t posted any blog entries in ages, the post title might surprise you. My blog has been dead for quite awhile. The last thing I was inspired even enough for a short blog entry was all the way back in December of 2010.
I used to “blog” practically daily. I didn’t call [...]

Jim Bianco

I had to share this. Had to. Jim Bianco is an awesome musician, and he’s doing a kickstarter.com program to raise money for his new album. I have a couple of his previous albums, and they are very good. I listen to them often. The first time I heard him play was last Christmas, when [...]

22 March 2010

Back from a semi-exhausting weekend. One of the teenagers had a birthday, and we were mid-trip to Seattle for her wish (a birthday shopping trip) when my practically new (2008) little car decided to overheat. Blah. Anyhow, Elliott to the rescue, which reminded me of just how much I love the PERKS of being married. [...]

15 March 2010

So I feel like I’m making little baby steps at getting back to my normal self. Taking anti-depressants for a year really set me back. I know that sounds weird, but if you missed my previous post, ADD was what caused my depression so I was totally taking the exact wrong thing for quite awhile. [...]

12 March 2010

Today has been a crap day so far. Mostly because you know the old saying, about when it rains it pours. I’ve found that to be true for both positive and negative things. Although sometimes what seems a negative at the time turns a corner in a way you never could have expected. Still, having [...]

09 March 2010 – Seattle Photographer Needed

Today I was going through some of the event listings that JanesGuide’s FB page has, and I was shocked and saddened to read that tattoo artist Gypsy Jill had passed. In my absence from the local community these past years, I’ve just missed a lot. She did the two most significant tattoos I have [...]
