If you're not sure you can make the switch from a euphonious sounding last name like "Tyler" or "Smith" to one that sounds like nails in your mouth...maybe consider not changing it at all. Read "It's My Name" on Jacquelyn's Web: jacquelynmitchard.com/2022/11/05/its…
No private citizen needs an assault rifle. I am not resigned.
Might need a little updating. Viking stoves are so 2006. But the price is right, just a couple of mil. hahahahahhah leightonrealty.com/homes/35-Barbe…
Just found a site that told me nine places in the US where I could pitch a tent in WINTER! I can't stop laughing.#DoNotCamp
"Someone acted quickly to grab a handgun from the gunman, then hit him with it .." Way to be bold and brave, gay nightclubbers!
My kingdom and eternal gratitude for a great title.Nothing is more imporatnt. #amwriting
In title purgatory for my new novel. It previously was called 'Saltwater,' because the protagonist is an underwater photographer, but found a rather good recent novel of that name. Now it's called 'Meh" or "The Deep End of the Ocean Diet.#amwriting
I love how Sherlock Holmes gets all dressed up -- in tweeds and a fancy starched shirt -- and then puts a bathrobe on over it. Exactly what I do.#SherlockHolmes
What a ho ho ho hum Donald Trump's candidacy has started out to be.
Such a nerd I am that nothing makes me happier than watching any variation of Sherlock Holmes. Best Sherlock -- Ian Richardson. Best Dr. Watson -- Martin Freeman. I know all the stories by heart but still ...#SherlockHolmes
But can Donald Trump govern from the penitentiary? I think other leaders have done so -- Al Capone springs to mind.#DonaldTrump
I got several friendly reminders this morning, of upcoming appointments and subscriptions due. If you got an "unfriendly" reminder in your email, what would that look like? Hey !$*%[email protected]#! Pay your electric bill!
My dog, Dante, is running for president. I gave him a bag of beef treats and a leather collar, the equivalent in dog dollars of what Donald Trump's father gave him, and he still has the collar. So there's one cur who keeps his word.#Dante4President
An old friend of mine once voted for Ronald Reagan because he wanted to see the apocalypse.
As Oprah Winfrey said (what up, Oprah?), "When people show you who they are, believe them." Donald Trump has said plainly that, if elected, he plans to use the USA as a fiefdom. Believe him.#DonaldTrump
Is it difficult for you to see pretty, well-groomed people as disingenuous lying liars? In the words of the old Hollies song, hey Kari Ann, what's your game, girl, can anybody play?#KariLake
Donald Trump has come between me and some of my closest relatives -- and I want to thank him for it.#DonaldTrump

I was at UVA the last time there was a shooting. I had taught classes and was leaving next morning and, as I got into the taxi, I saw a line of ten police cars and an ambulance speeding in, lights but no sirens. The shooting took place not 100 yards from where I stood.
Georgia, you have the Rep you deserve: Marjorie Taylor Greene suggested that Sept. 11 attacks were a hoax; wildfires result of space lasers controlled by the Rothschilds, the Jewish banking family in antisemitic conspiracy theories; Democratic leaders should be executed.
Marjorie Taylor Green wins ... and the dusk of the gods begins.
When people are motivated by hatred and greed, nothing is impossible for them.
Have you participated in my November giveaway yet? You won't want to miss out on the chance to win my newest book - paired with what I think is one of the most romantic stories ever written - Kazuo Ishiguro's, “Never Let Me Go.” bit.ly/3FWUj1u
If you are a conservative and your hero says 192 things that are not true and one thing that is, you will believe 193 things.
I once asked my daughter, what do you value most in a man? And she said, "Humor, fairness, brains. But what a woman would do for a man who can dance? Anything." Just do you know.#Dancing

Here in New England is the grave of Louisa May Alcott, designating that she served the Union in the Civil War. The author of immortal books such as 'Little Women,' this is how she wanted to be remembered.
Ron, WAS the United States NOT built on stolen land? Whose was it?
Does every film from here to eternity have to start with someone running (for stress relief, from danger, from the police)? I usually WALK when I'm running from the police ...#movies
For many, shopping is a form of self-care. Me? I’d rather play the e-commerce lottery and spare myself the dissonant dept. store jazz. Don't get me started on end-cap marketing. It's just one more thing to hip check yourself with. Commiserate with me: bit.ly/3VROfNf
There's a Halloween story on my "Jackie's Web" feature this week on jacquelynmitchard.com .. paying homage to my mentor, a great writer of science fiction and fantasy .. now gone .. or so some believe.
School field trip to Salem, a town with a tragic past and a festive present ... they call it "Witch City," and, according to a friend of mine, when the accused were cruelly executed, the real witches were watching.
If I drank as much as people do in TV movies, I'd never be able to get off the floor.
This isn't important except if you are a woman and you have hair. It astonishes me when something that promises to do something actually does it. The Revlon Bedhead combo dryer/curling iron combo really works.
Make Beta O'Rourke the next PRESIDENT, forget governor of Texas ...
Oh read this story .. should it ever have happened? theatlantic.com/magazine/archi…
The fact that Trump overcharged HIS OWN Secret Service at his hotels seems to faze no one but me and the lone reporter who keeps jumping up and down and raising her hand ... reminds me of Madoff scamming an 88-year-old of her coin collection.
I guess we're going to see what Trump really CAN do and still keep the devotion of his followers .. and how do they justify this? Well, jobs ... (e.g. He kept the trains running ...)
Did you know (I did not know) that serial killer David Berkowitz (Son of Sam) is still alive ... and so is Dennis Rader (BTK ... I won't translate) is as well? I guess I thought the earth opened and they fell in.#serialkillers
There are cat people, and there are dog people. Then, there’s 'a cat manipulated my relationship with a blood relative and now we are estranged' people, also known as me. Read "The Cat Who Loved Me” on Jackie’s Web: bit.ly/3EIp9u5
Is there a penthouse at the penitentiary?
Oh media. I'm on your side. Why do you have to color outside the lines? Headlines like, 'Children Lining Up for Gender Surgery.' No one is LINING UP for gender surgery; it's a rare and specific thing.#gender
I couldn't be paid to live in New York. It's glorious. It may be the most glorious city in the world ... but the operative word is "city." Here, trucks pass by, but every five minutes or so at peak times.
Photographer acquaintance traveled to river jungle where tribes described as "Stone Age" and hostile to Europeans: They pole the canoe in and suddenly notice all these bright lights on the shore: The indigenous people were holding up their iPhones.
Is voting for Will Smith for an Oscar saying yes to casual violence, no to decorum or ... who cares?
What I like in a bathroom: jetted giant tub, walk-in glass steam shower with multi-level heads, bidet, heated floor tiles, heated towel racks, double sinks and mirrors, wall by toilet. I did have all that, and I earned it! Until another's financial foolishness lost it all.#Gone

Why do some conservative Christians bristle at the word "religious" and insist they're not "religious," that they just have a personal relationship with God? I thought that was what "religious" was.
