The Fighter
Posted 28 May 2013 / By MC / Archives/ Miss Clariss Musings/ Tear Jerkers

If you fall pick yourself up off the floor (get up)

And when your bones can’t take no more (c’mon)

Just remember what you’re here for

Cuz I know Imma damn sure

Give em hell, turn their heads

Gonna live life ’til we’re dead.

Give me scars, give me pain

Then they’ll say to me, say to me, say to me

There goes the fighter, there goes the fighter

Here comes the fighter

That’s what they’ll say to me, say to me, say to me,

This one’s a fighter

– Gym Class Heroes


Every day you read stories, see on the news, watch movies, or hear real testimonies of people who have struggled with a terminal illness. For instance, an 18-year-old man, Zach Sobiech, succumbed to Osteosarcoma (a rare form of terminal bone cancer) on Tuesday, May 21. He was a son, a brother, a best friend, a boyfriend, a songwriter, a YouTube sensation, and an inspiration. His story will make your heart hurt, your soul smile, and your brain burst into a million little pieces. Read More

Here I Go Again

An’ here I go again on my own

Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,

Like a drifter I was born to walk alone

An’ I’ve made up my mind

I ain’t wasting no more time

– Whitesnake


I have not been honest with you, Ballas.

I have been keeping a huge, humongous secret.

A secret so very big I am almost bursting at the seams to blurt it out every chance I get.

And finally… Read More

Under The Boardwalk
Posted 12 May 2013 / By MC / Archives/ Tear Jerkers/ The Apple Doesn't Fall Far...

Oh, when the sun beats down and burns the tar up on the roof

And your shoes get so hot you wish your tired feet were fire-proof

Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah

On a blanket with my baby is where I’ll be

– The Drifters


Happy Sunday, all! What a beautiful day to spend with family! The sun is finally shining, the flowers are in full bloom, and the temperature is just right. Thank you for taking the time to stop by on such a special day.

Anyhow, this week, boy, do I have a treat for you!

This week, Miss Clariss is going where she has never gone before…

This week, I introduce to you… The Guest Balla!


As Mother’s Day approached, both Bubba and Mace asked for help with Mother’s Day ideas. I am their older sister, their adviser… and the only one with a job. I had already bought my Mother’s Day gift for Momma (some really bright adirondack chairs to go around the pool), so I had to get creative for my siblings. “What if I let you two be ‘Guest Bloggers’ during this week’s edition of Miss Clariss?”

Surprisingly, we all agreed on something… on the first try.

They wanted it to be official. Like, I had to come up with questions and interview them. Seriously, what did they think this was? Rolling Stone? Whatevs. I was just glad they seemed to like the idea.

So, without further adieu, for the first (and maybe the last…) time ever, I present to you – Bubba and Mace – candid and uncut! Read More

Here’s your one chance Fancy, don’t let me down.

Things have a tendency to spontaneously combust around me.

We’ll just let that marinate for a second or three… Read More
