Last week I received an email from a TV production company in the UK. They wanted to know if I'd be interested in talking to them about a documentary they were working on. They thought I would be a good candidate, based on some of my blog content. I figured it had something to do with … Continue reading Too Ugly for Love?
I'm not one to wish the days away, but going back to a full work week after two nice, long holiday weekends is rough. Last night I gave my 6th Toastmaster speech. I might be starting to get the hang of it. I spent a ton of time preparing a PowerPoint presentation to accompany my speech, … Continue reading It’s Only Tuesday
Hi, my name is Heather and I'm a Facebook addict. What's that saying? The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem? Telling people you have a Facebook addiction doesn't quite get the same reaction as saying you're battling an alcohol or drug addiction. It's not like anyone's ever died from Facebooking too … Continue reading Kicking the Habit
Today is EEC Chick's Two-Year Anniversary! What a long, strange trip it's been. Ok, not really. I have yet to exceed 100 posts. That's rather sad. I had envisioned this blog becoming the next Dooce, except with less poop references. It's probably a good thing I haven't gone viral though - I don't know if … Continue reading Two Years!
Today I'm going to talk about breasts. Boobies, melons, sweater-stretchers. Snuggle-pups or sweater kittens. Whatever you call them, there's no denying that people spend a lot of time thinking about these glorious glands. In my growing-up years, my friends and I gleefully anticipated growing ample bosoms in our teen years. We practiced by stuffing all manner … Continue reading Magnificent Mammaries
As the name implies, ectrodactyly is a prominent feature of EEC. Ectrodactyly just means missing fingers (or toes). If you ask me about it, I'll say that I don't think about ectrodactyly much and that it really hasn't been that big of a deal in my life. Which in some ways is true. It has not caused me much physical … Continue reading Exploring Ectrodactyly with EEC Chick
The year is 1991. Kids really do wear their hair in aqua-net-encased creations of spiked mullets and towering bangs (the grunge wave has not yet reached our suburban landscape). My personal soundtrack consists of anything REM, the Bryan Adams' single "Everything I Do", and Disney's Little Mermaid soundtrack. I think I am turning out to … Continue reading Color Me, Don’t Color Me
Throughout my late teens and most of my 20's, I lived in ignorant bliss when it came to my ears. My "bad" ear was stable enough that it didn't bother me. Once in a while I would have nagging thoughts about the cholesteatoma coming back, so I would make an appointment with my ENT to … Continue reading Deaf As A Post – Part 2
Every once in a while I think of that Goo Goo Dolls song, 'Name', which has the line "Scars are souvenirs you never lose The past is never far." It brings to mind superficial scars, like the crescent shaped scar on my forearm, where our dog Tasha bit me when I tried to take a … Continue reading Souvenirs You Never Lose
This blog has existed for many years in my mind's eye. I have been putting it off for one reason or another, but the biggest reason is that I am hesitant to open myself up to criticism and judgement when it comes to something so personal. So bear with me as I slowly peel back … Continue reading The first post…
