Happy Summer Solstice:

Guess what? It continues to be gorgeous weather here and if one were an idiot, one could yawn and proclaim boredom. Since I'd not normally an idiot, I'm basking. Lovely tan, the cats are gamboling through the marigolds, the Meyer lemons are busting off the trees.

Happy May you be happy:

I love Hump Day. Now, forget the camel for a moment: something really cool you want to LOOK AT right this minute: Go to this web site now: http://brendanovak.auctionanything.com  You can bid to have lunch with me in Sausalito (Yep, I'm only paying for lunch, forget the private jet, that's a myth), you can bid to have a lunch with J.T. Ellison and me in San Antonio (again, no jet, probably Mexican) on July 26th and you can bid on my books as well as others and get them autographed. Plus, there's a gazillion other great things you can bid on and ALL proceeds go to support  juvenile diabetes research. So you can get stuff you really like and you earn both virtue and non-sucky karma points.

Gorgeous April:

No more melt-in-your-socks deep snow, no more bone-rattling winds, no more stick-your-tongue-to-the- flagpole ice storms,  no more Valentine's Day zero-calorie chocolates -- nope, all gone and now what?  Flowers and bright sun and stray thoughts of wild and crazy things you wouldn't tell your mother even now -- it's Spring and it's time to be thankful and rejoice the sun doesn't go down until after 8:00 at night and isn't that wonderful? And to top it off chocolate Easter bunnies are at this very moment hopping out of the forest headed for your basket -- we're talking solid chocolate here, not those wimpy hollow bunnies.

Happy St. Patrick's Day:

      So who actually drinks green beer, eats green mashed potatoes,  and sticks on tattoos of shamrocks all over their body? Or leprechaun tattoos on the butt? If you say yes to any of these, I will send you the Irish Wonker Fairy, maybe you two can out-green each other. (The IWF loves green toenail polish, just a heads up.)

Happy Valentine's Day:

     CHOCOLATES! My very own 2-pound box of CHOCOLATES. What a glorious day, set aside specially to stuff truffles in my mouth without guilt. Add a funny card, maybe a Mexican meal out, and I'm a deliriously happy camper. What could be easier and more satisfying? No male half of the equation has to work too hard to earn big points and, yes, big scrumptious smiles, etc.

Happy New Year:

Yeah, so it's a little late, but get into the rhythm with me -- it's now 2014 and we're all getting used to writing it. Fact is, I always felt uncomfortable writing 2013, like it was a Friday and bad luck was always lurking around the corner, like ladders lying in wait, maybe one of them evil, or a really evil mirror poised to smash down on your head.

It's not yet the Night Before Christmas, but it'll be here before you know it. Picture yourself putting together a bicycle with  instructions translated from Mongolian, hoping your husband really wears a size 12 running shoe (they're really hot and you got them on sale and no returns), praying your kid won't grow another size since you snagged the last 4 Tall red coat from Pottery Barn Kids (yep, on sale and you can't return it) and knowing to your feet that the clever cat  toys you got for their stockings will bring on cat sneers and disinterest and you'll be putting them out again next Christmas (because cat toys are never on sale) and finally, praying the expensive perfume you got your sister won't turn to vinegar as it spends three days at the bottom of a pile of boxes in a warehouse in South Florida, without air conditioning.

Happy Thanksgiving:

What do you think if we simply have Hallothanksmas? That way we could put all the decorations up at once and leave them there for three months. Picture my vulture Brett next to Pilgrim family, the Jawarskys, all sitting in the Thanksgiving hay wagon, parked in front of a gorgeous Christmas Tree with owls on it. What a wonderful image! Okay, write your congressperson, let's make this happen. Since new legislation takes time, do not despair. I believe there are 3, count them, 3, football games on Thanksgiving day and evening, maybe even a late show, so hmm, what's not to like here? Gotta think about this some more. You may weigh in while chowing down homemade cranberry sauce.

Happy Halloween:

If you're cold blooded, like moi, then you're not particularly happy about the unacceptable temperatures  in San Francisco. It's now been 6 -- count them -- 6 straight weeks of warm gorgeous weather that's keeping everyone, locals and tourists, in shorts, flip flops and big smiles.  Alas, for the cold blooded among us (who are not addicted to blood except maybe on Halloween), I feel strongly this is meteorological discrimination and thus sucketh greatly. After all, this is San Francisco -- usually the land of lovely cold fog billowing through the Golden Gate throughout the summer. But no, this Indian Summer simply won't go away,  so what's a poor cold blooded, non-vampire to do? If you answer, Stop being an idiot, I will not take it under advisement, so be nice and commiserate even though you're probably smirking.
