Best o’ the Bitch, My Bitches, Recipes

Friends Without Kids


This past weekend was the annual spring ritual of mom’s gone wild, desert version. I’m pretty sure our husbands imagined pillow fights and erotic braiding of each other’s hair, but that’s just the guy’s view/hope/fantasy…  although there was a gigantic bottle of vodka and assorted other options to take a break from reality, plus bikinis and plenty of lady lube.

This party is built for fun and fancy, laced with some mind-bending ideas and advice for getting your groove on just in the nick of time.

Welcome to the Uplift Mojo Party Plan 2012. Not to be confused with Kony 2012 (although I’d like to overthrow a dictator or two and stop child abuses… without the naked public psychotic meltdown). Maybe to be a little confused with The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Uplift Mofo Party Plan (Special Secret Song Inside not included).

Chances are you know me – presently or from as far back as either of us can remember. Since it may have been a while, let me tell you a touch about me. read more
