Friday Favorites 2


Today's Favorite is my friend Pam. We used to work together at my last job, and she certainly kept me entertained. As you'll see - she has an incredible whit, and will have you in stitches in no time! The adventures of her two kids and the rest of her family are often hysterical... I mean you just can't make that stuff up! 

About Me
Hi, I’m Pammer, and I can’t believe Kim has asked me to do this.  She clearly needs some sleep.

I am an old soul in high heels. I am a recovering IT consultant and sales executive and right now I’m just happy to be here.

In what could only have been a drunken moment, I decided to chuck my previously lucrative career to work in the world of philanthropy – where I met Kim. I wasn't really a fundraiser, I just played one on TV -- and I made 40% of my previous salary. I was clearly a moron.
A moron with great jewelry.

I graduated from the University of Missouri in 1992 (go Tigers) with a degree in Communications. I also have two post-graduate degrees. That means that I am educated on much, but qualified for nothing.

I have pulled things in my career that HR people just marvel at and I was happy to admit that if someone told me I could quit tomorrow I'd walk out grinning like the Cheshire cat.

I love cheesecake, magazines, etsy, raunchy comedy, great finds at ridiculous prices and my insanely powered blow drier because I have the most difficult hair in the world. Oh, and I’m an internet ninja and a bit of an accessories whore.

My family includes my husband and three daughters (ages 29, 22 and 8), son (3) and son-in-law (29), and grandbaby (newly born) and once upon a time the most high-strung dog ever to walk the earth.

And just a warning, I have a potty mouth.
What you like to write about
My blog is full of the ridiculous things that happen to me on any given day.  There are moments of clarity  – some tears – and a healthy dose of humor if I’ve done my job right.  I started writing just to see if I could, garnered some very hilarious followers and commenters then stopped writing for about a year.  Because that makes sense, right?  I’m back at it again, getting my writing legs back and adding a few new features to my little purple piece of the internet.  So, here’s your party invite.  Pull up a barstool – your waitress will be around shortly to take your order. 

There you have it... seriously, go check her out!

  1. Seriously, everyone needs someone like Pam where they work! I love her sense of humor and get a really good sense of it just in that short piece. Pam....I'm coming over! I'll take a Shirley Temple, with an extra cherry please!


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
