Blitz Q #170: Can you really get rid of psychosomatic symptoms long-term?

I was trying to figure out what's been wrong with me the past several days. Migraine here, nausea there, another crazy headache right now as I type this (mostly with my eyes closed to give my pain a break). My days haven't let me get much done because of it, and I've been annoyed. Things … Continue reading Blitz Q #170: Can you really get rid of psychosomatic symptoms long-term?

Never thought I could hate my own state so much, but Texas insists on becoming a bad punchline to every backwards, off-color national joke.

Yes, I'm gonna bitch about the abortion bill. If that's not what you wanna read, there's a whole slew of other things on the net. Go have fun. Anyhoo-- This is not some bad joke I can at least chuckle at. I'm so far from laughing I'm probably gonna end up giving myself another migraine … Continue reading Never thought I could hate my own state so much, but Texas insists on becoming a bad punchline to every backwards, off-color national joke.

I tried out my first pair of “barefoot shoes” this weekend. Can’t wait for the rest to show up.

I don't remember what got me looking for these "barefoot" (or "minimalist") shoes in the first place, but I do know I went from knowing nothing to "I'd better get some" in record time. And I don't mean those weird "toe shoes" that look like slightly more complicated gloves for the feet. Those things wigged … Continue reading I tried out my first pair of “barefoot shoes” this weekend. Can’t wait for the rest to show up.

A piece of music & a film trailer have made my imagination very busy this past week & change…

I wasn't expecting my well... expectations, for lack of a better word, to change so drastically thanks to just some random browsing online in between work call-ins, power outages, and migraines. And today I overhauled my reading schedule to take advantage of my new plans. Now, I've written a little before about the 1984 film … Continue reading A piece of music & a film trailer have made my imagination very busy this past week & change…

Q #169: When is it actually “appropriate” to “speak ill of the dead”?

This question's bugged me off and on for a while. Granted, nobody likes a Negative Nancy or a total a-hole all the time, and there are certainly times where certain things likely shouldn't be said, but I do question the whole "don't speak ill of the dead" thing. Though, thanks to social media and a … Continue reading Q #169: When is it actually “appropriate” to “speak ill of the dead”?

I found myself fascinated with musical theater within 48 hours. How the hell did THAT happen?

It's really strange how some of these things come about, but I do know part of what started it was browsing the Chaos Lord's domain: YouTube. You know how it works. You click on a vid to watch or listen to, there's a bunch of suggestions on the side, and before you know it you've … Continue reading I found myself fascinated with musical theater within 48 hours. How the hell did THAT happen?

Imagery, propaganda, & political gain at our expense, or, Beau hits it out of the park again…

I've been trying to play catchup with the news (was trying to look more into pandemic related stuff for obvious reasons) and have started delving into the state of the world. Afghanistan, of course, is the big one. So many little things were popping up I wasn't sure what to think or what was going … Continue reading Imagery, propaganda, & political gain at our expense, or, Beau hits it out of the park again…

Running on Empty No More: Transform your relationships with your partner, your parents, & your children, by Jonice Webb, PhD.

My Copy: 9781683506737 (image from goodreads.com) Well, a few months ago I read the prequel book to this one, Running on Empty, which deals with Childhood Emotional Neglect and recognizing the signs and such. That one was pretty in depth and geared more toward the personal and self-improvement. Running on Empty No More goes beyond … Continue reading Running on Empty No More: Transform your relationships with your partner, your parents, & your children, by Jonice Webb, PhD.

How curbside grocery service might just save my (turkey) bacon in the long run…

I actually used curbside service at the grocery store three times so far, and I'd never intended to. The first time was because I had to take my dogs to the vet and I thought driving all the way to town for that, only to return home to drop them off and then drive all … Continue reading How curbside grocery service might just save my (turkey) bacon in the long run…

A strange, funny, yet disturbing epiphany I had regarding how I can “get back on the horse” sooner…

I had the slightest of lulls during my shift tonight, trying to cancel out some noise and figure out what to take care of next in my stack of stuff. It wasn't quiet by any stretch, but the thought just came in. I guess we could call it the epilogue of Sunday's "I hate my … Continue reading A strange, funny, yet disturbing epiphany I had regarding how I can “get back on the horse” sooner…
