Yes, I know dramatical isn’t a real word — go watch Waiting For Guffman, take a pill, and cut me some slack. When I landed in Los Angeles, I was (almost immediately) bullied into joining a theater troupe by several well-meaning-yet-stealthily-manipulative friends — including my beloved. (He wasn’t the ring-leader, but he sure as hell…

Journalists seem to like what I say about organizing/simplifying. (God knows why, with the mouth on me — I guess a little profanity keeps “chained-to-your-desk” interesting.) Of course after toning the language down, I’m never quoted as accurately as I’d like. But at least no one can accuse me of a boring interview! My focus…

I’m descended from the Laceys on my mother’s paternal side. (Although somewhere before my grandfather became a reality, the powers that be changed our familial spelling — hopefully because of clerical error rather than a distant relation’s inability to read. But the earliest written records list us with an “e,” so that’s my story and…

As a professional-organizer-cum-accountability-guru, I spend my time teaching folks how to make their days easier. But that doesn’t mean I’m some kind of Little Miss Smarty Pants Perfect — who’s known the answer to life, the universe, and everything since conception. (It’s 42, by the way.) My own road to simplicity is littered with plenty…

“Who are you?” Oh my lord — huge question! Given one of those dingleberry “self-identify-in-50-words-or-less” quizzes, I’d be hard-pressed to concoct an answer that makes anything resembling logical sense. As a year-round RVer, I’m all about exploration — but nothing’s quite so comforting as returning to a home port for some tribal reconnect. My top…

I’m from the south. We don’t hide crazy. We park its ass in a rocking chair on the front porch, serve it a cocktail (or possibly sweet tea, if one of the cousins is currently on the wagon between rehab-tours-of-duty) — invite the whole clan over, and spend the better part of a Sunday afternoon…

I got Creel blood (the hematological equivalent of demons) from my father’s paternal side running all through me — ALL through me. Beetlejuice? Anyone? Folks who sell those highly-colorful-yet-possibly-fictionalized crests (the ones in twee little shops at tourist-type locations) tell me this fish-baskety moniker comes from a dealer’s choice of Irish, Scottish, or English ancestors. However,…

I’m a May on my mother’s maternal side. Those who poke around Mormon research libraries tell me that the name dates back to an early Anglo-Norman-Irish (can you say “mutt mix?”) emigration — could’ve picked it up anywhere along the way from L’Hexagone to the land of the Angles to Éire. It cracks me up…

I was delivered from down off the Mount (just like a pair of stone-flipping-tablets, though far less biblical in nature) on my father’s maternal side. Now the fine folks who track such things tell me that my ancestral peeps could have acquired this lofty rubric from either our Scottish or English forebears. Regardless of origin,…

Okay, so I don’t work a 9-to-5 job — that doesn’t mean I’m not proud of the things I’ve accomplished in my career. But some narrow-minded folks out there believe that if you’re not ascending a stereotypical vocational ladder in the socially-proscribed manner, it doesn’t count. (These people are morons.) In defiance of “The Man,”…
