I Said CARE! by Deb Kristy

What I’m reading now? Well, I’m reading a lot now. I’m always reading a lot. I read the back of the Pantene bottle while I’m washing my hair; I read the toothpaste label while I’m brushing my teeth; I read license plates while I’m driving. What? Anyway, as far as books go, I usually have several going at once. One is always on my bathroom counter. I hold it open…

Rumors (and not of the Fleetwood Mac Variety) by Deb Kristy

There is a terrible and untrue rumor out there about moi, Debutante Kristy. The rumor goes something like this: “Oh that Kristy, she’s so organiiiized!” (Said in your best Cyndi Lauper voice.) Let us put this vicious rumor to rest once and for all, shall we? You see, The Debutante Ball has a topic each week, and that has worked out quite nicely since we started dancing. But we’ve discussed…

The Wonderful World of Webkinz by Deb Kristy

What I love about our new Pop Culture topic is that there’s so much material to choose from! So I’ve been paying attention this week. I’ve been scanning the National Enquirer in the Publix check-out line, I’ve pored over People magazine, I’ve eavesdropped on fourteen-year-old girls (btw, I have NO idea what they were talking about). And I’ve found that the pictures of Mariah Carey and Courtney Love and their…

If I don’t Believe am I still a Bull? Or just full of it? by Deb Kristy

So I know this post is a little later than my usual Saturday post, but it was on purpose. Really. See, I had to wait until today in order to bring you this: Powered by Astrocenter.com  May 5, 2007 Daily Taurus horoscope Your concept of reality may be more based on your emotions than on facts, dear Taurus. This is one of those days when this sort of paradigm of…

Please Pass the Butter by Deb Kristy

I like my name. It has a certain rhythm to it (can anyone spell rhythm correctly the first time?) and I like the symmetry of the two K’s. I also like the fact that if you fake an Irish brogue, you can say my last name correctly on the first try. Go ahead, try it: Keeeer-nin. Just makes you ache for a black and tan doesn’t it? But like most…

When They GET It – Off-Topic by Deb Kristy

I gave a talk at Miami Dade College on Friday. There were two groups of students there, English students and math students, and let me tell you, college students are a tough audience. For one thing, they have their bored look so down. I haven’t been able to arrange my face in that position for years, though I’m quite sure I was a real pro at it when I was…

The Literary Genius of The Bob-Whites by Deb Kristy

My favorite literary character must be that great hero of Tish Cohen and mine, Trixie Belden. See, Trixie, despite her stripper name and modest background, was a real girl. She wore jeans (unlike Nancy Drew who was more apt to wear something called dungarees) and though she loved her very closest friend in the world, Honey (okay, seriously, what’s going on with these names?!), she also admitted to feelings of…
