Dear Pagan, Sufi, or Spiritually Eclectic Hooligans,

Welcome to yet another deliriously magnificent mailer, published by your own personal lord and savior, Jesus Christ.

Er… no wait a minute… it’s just me, Sara, trying to keep y’all informed and keep the circles open for your and my personal enjoyment.

Sorry, no messiah here. Just your supremely humble local networker. Have you noticed how when someone says “I’m so humble…” it usually means they’re not? I’ve noticed that too.


I have a question:

Can someone please explain to me why chive flowers smell like garlic?

And is “chive” even a word? Is “chives” a singular noun?

I bet Jesus would know.

Or I bet Jesus could ask Adam and Eve to clarify. Did Adam and Eve make it into heaven even though they had to invent clothes because of their indiscretion?

Either way, I’m sure they had chive/s and garlic growing in their garden.

Please wear all your appropriate public apparel when you attend the following events with me (fig leaves will not suffice, unless you weave a sturdy fiber out of the shredded leaves, but I bet it’s itchy and not worth the effort)…

Did you know that there are little plug-in pheromone diffusers that can make horribly bitchy cats friendly and lovable? It’s true. I didn’t believe it but…

(this next line is sung at the top of one’s lungs)

NOW I’M A BELIEVER!!! Without a trace of doubt in my mind!

Hey hey we’re the Monkees! And people say we monkey around!

Who writes this stuff?


I’m wondering if there are happy pheromone diffusers for bad drivers, PMS-ing women, NRA members (Hey if you go here and register, can I have your free hat? https://membership.nrahq.org/forms/gift.asp), conspiracy theorists, or Mitt Romney. Incidentally, Mitt Romney’s website has a “shopping” section so you can buy a hat exactly like the NRA one, but it’s not free. I think Mitt could afford to give me a free hat, don’t you?



Did you know that Barack Obama, the super-studly, bad-ass, smarty-pants, pro-women, pro-gay-rights, pro-intelligence is speaking at CSU this afternoon?

I’m currently crying in my coffee because I have to leave for the Denver Women’s Dance before he starts talking. Otherwise I would have been there blowing him kisses. Hey! I said “KISSES!”

I better finish this e-mail before I get in trouble.


Love and Happiness to every blessed one of you, whichever way you vote come November!
