Happy Almost New Years


December 31, 1999, in the evening, I wondered if the world would end 12:00 a.m., January 2000.
We went to a party. Later in the night (11:30 p.m. or so) I was tired, I’ll just take a little nap in a bedroom.

When I woke up, maybe 12:15 a.m., the world didn’t end.
I wonder if I WAS awake at 12:00 a.m., the world WOULD end though?
Well, in any case, you’re welcome everyone.

My Halloween costumes?

Some people every year have the best costumes. Obviously, I never won the best costume, but here’s someย of mine over the years:


Julie Brown, the singer — “‘Cause I’m A Blonde”ย (I’m sitting down)

Money laundering scheme

โ€ฆ More people though, โ€œAre you just money?โ€

So I had to explain the costume every time. Only one person got my costume.

He said, โ€œHAAAAA!ย Money laundering scheme! I love it!”

Finally someone got it.

A month later, I looked likeย Sinead O’Connor! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Before, Afdre, and After …

Before, Afdre, and After (My stroke . . . oh what fun)

2017 PW Before,

“When Maureen Twomey was only thirty-three years old, she experienced a massive stroke-one that took away her ability to read, write, walk, and even speak (AAAAAAAHHH!!). Well, she wasn’t about to go down without a fight …

In Before, Afdre and After, Twomey offers a sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes comical, and ultimately inspiring glimpse at what it is to lose everything when you’re supposed to be in the prime of your life-and what it takes to get it back, piece by tiny piece.”


“What’s so funny and inspiring about a stroke? Now I know..”
