a little bit more about me

My name is Beth and I accidentally have found myself living in Arizona but I'm originally from Tennessee. My education is in history and anthropology, which means that I know a little about a lot of things and can hold my own at a cocktail party in mixed company. I work in museums, doing all sorts of things ranging from researching and writing exhibits to cataloguing absolute wickety wak. I love comedy, baking, photography, my daughter, dogs, and above all else, napping.*

* 2013 edit: Oh yeah, and my new son too.

    In Which I Discover the Effects of Living in Arizona Too Long

    My Better Half™: "Her little dimple is SO cute!"

    Me: "She has a dimple?! Where??"

    My Better Half™: "Right there!"

    Me: "Oh my God, she DOES! It IS cute! How have I not noticed that before? Do you have a dimple?"

    My Better Half™: "Yeah, over here."

    Me: "Do I have a dimple?"

    My Better Half™: "I can't tell if that's a dimple or a wrink-le..."

    Me: "What?? A WRINKLE??"

    My Better Half™: "uh, nothing..." <walks away>

    Note to Self: More sunscreen and moisturizer. Daily.


    How Bad Did I Look Before?

    I’ve been free of the museum job and the Boss for two months now, and met my friends for a drink after work this evening. The first thing my BFF said was “You look GREAT! The lines on your face have gone WAY down!” 

    So it’s not just me. I felt like that my museum job took years off my life, and other people saw it too. Can I sue for pain, suffering, and the cost of Restylane?



    Unfiltered Thoughts: Aging

    As the bag boy at the grocery store handed me my groceries, he said “Have a nice night, ma’am.”

    Ma'am?! When did I go from being a “miss” to a “ma’am”?! This is not good. Adding sunscreen to my daily routine from now on.
