Updated 2020 (from Lock-down Pandemic Covid-19 jail – waiting for parole lifted restrictions to get life back in some form):

“I’m a GenX blogger/writer/dog walker/purger/wine drinker/midlife mom.  Started blogging when my son was an infant; he’s 15 now.  I live in a teeny bungalow in Toronto’s West End with a pilot/professor partner, tween girl and the aforementioned teen boy.  Oh and we’re getting a puppy in late summer. (Help me.)”


C. La (*) Is Fearless And Confident And Right-In-There … Despite Her Passive Introversion – Don’t Be Fooled – Be Prepared.  Her Writing Bends Hard, From Journaling Accounts Of Life In The Meh-velous Mom Lane To Ripping Rants And No Shortage Of Cutting Humor To Cause The Reader To Lean Into Their Screen A Little Closer And Then Suddenly Jump Back.

How Cool Is That?

It’s A Bit Like Train Wreck Meets Groundhog Day Meets Home Alone (Adult Version) Meets Willy Wonka Meets Chocolat Meets How Stella Got Her Groove Back Meets Mommie Dearest (Sweet Version). 🙂

Claudette’s A Big Fan Of Bryan Adams.   So, Let’s Go With “Cuts Like A Knife”

(*) I Didn’t Ask Claudette’s Permission To Refer To Her As “C. La”  … Because I Recently Coronated Her As “Countessa Of The Semicolon”, Which She Is Rather Fond Of, And I’m Not In The Mood To Piss Her Off About Grammar.

That’s All I’m Saying …

“And, Thanks, Countessa.”

    Another excellent shout-out, Michael! I am eager to jump into Claudette’s blog. And, just so you know, your descriptions of her work are absolutely scrumptious! Seriously. I found myself wanting to bite into the words. (shrugs) I know. I’m a weirdo. 🙂
