Paparazzi Sightings

Sometimes I like the things  I write for other people more than I like the things I write here. Sometimes, not always. But others’ blogs or other writings allow me to talk about things that don’t fit well here, or explore serious topics when my main objective here is humor. And I don’t like losing track of those things, so I’ve made a collective. Feel free to visit. Tell them Lori sent you.

I Need a Shopping Support Group This is a silly little piece I wrote for Amy over at Dealusional about one of my very few successful shopping endeavors.

I’m laughing right now because I was debating linking up two pieces I wrote early in 2010 for a website that I stopped visiting because I stopped being able to handle the drama. Did I want to showcase my work and drive possible traffic to this site I didn’t like? I was debating and, well, a moot point now. My pieces have been removed. I suppose I was not paying enough homage. One of them I posted here, Leap. The other…well, maybe I’ll post it somewhere someday. Keep your eyes peeled! (Not literally. Don’t do that. That would hurt.)


  1. Oh and I want you to do another one since you are so funny. Every few days I realize that my posts are getting too sincere and that I need to mix in some more humor. So humor me please!
