Keyboard Warriors, Friend Counts, & The Experiment

December 14, 2015

I’m six months into a one-year study on keyboard warriors. Keyboard warriors (informal noun): People who make abusive or unnecessarily aggressive and comments on Facebook statuses. They tend to leave bad reviews, sometimes for a business service they’ve never used. Oftentimes, keyboard warriors can be found in their natural habitat of their mother’s basement,  furiously typing.  I made a spreadsheet and everything, […]

Meredith’s Drunk Book Club: Troublemaker by Leah Remini

December 10, 2015

If you haven’t read Leah Remini’s “Troublemaker” yet – do it. It’s AMAZING. I listened to the audiobook, which I highly recommend. Her humor and sarcasm shine through with her thick New York accent. Before we get going on this, you should know that I’ve been obsessed with Scientology since 2012. My husband is probably sick of […]

My Morning With Opal Covey. #OpalForMayor

October 31, 2015

Ok, so let’s discuss my involvement with Toledo Mayoral candidate, Opal Covey.  Opal Covey was going viral on the internet. Like many Toledoans Americans, I quickly became obsessed. I couldn’t get enough of her. My friends (and even my husband) were saying, “She doesn’t have an online presence! You should help her!” People who work in social […]

The Bad Friend

October 20, 2015

Something like this recently rolled through my Facebook timeline: When do you stop inviting that friend who never shows up to things? The comments on that post went something like this: Three times and then I take it as a hint our friendship is over. I used to have a friend like that. She’s dead to me. […]

One girl. One cup.

September 28, 2015

I can’t do it anymore. I’m throwing in the towel. Or rather… the toilet paper. Every morning I’ve been starting my day with a shake from Shakeology. I finally got the recipe to where it was manageable. Lots of ice, a scoop of chocolate powder, a dab of milk, and a tablespoon of peanut butter. But […]

Idiocracy

September 16, 2015

Do you ever think, “Dammit. Is there something I’m missing, or am I the smartest human alive?” Samesies. All political debates with men talking about women have me like: #SorryNotSorry #MyUterusDespisesYou #78CentsOnYourDollar #IsTheJokeOnUs? Kindest Regards, Meredith Facebook Comments

Meredith’s Non-Diet Diet Quest

September 10, 2015

You guys, I am getting fat(ter). Here’s the thing, I LOATHE starving myself and sweating. I’m a happy eater, who has been living a pretty fantastic life this past year. And I’m very busy, like most moms. I want the magic bullet. I once took Adipex for 6 months. It was a magic bullet. I very […]

Working mother guilt? I have zero.

June 24, 2015

Women always ask me this cringe worthy question: So… Where are your kids right now? Who is watching them? Sometimes it’s packaged differently. Like: I don’t know how you do it. How do you juggle owning a company and spend time with your family?  Or: Your husband must be a saint. Does he mind that […]

The Last Day

June 12, 2015

Hey Kendra, It’s Friday morning, and you’re probably reading this before your LAST RADIATION TREATMENT! But I’m actually writing this in the middle of the night, last night. It’s about 1:00am. I should be sleeping, but fuck it. I really want to tell you something, and I can’t sleep until I get this off my chest. […]

Meredith’s Drunk Book Club: Fat Girl Walking

May 18, 2015

Brittany, I’ve been putting your book review off, and here I am, down to the night before your book comes out, sobbing behind my keyboard. I know the length of time it has taken to me to write this has maybe been hurting your feelings or been confusing for you, and I am sorry for […]
