My blonde Houdini was at it again, but I got the scare of my life to go with it… legally, that is.

My two dogs were out this morning while I chopped veggies and tried to handle feeding and swapping food for 22 parakeets. Well, I was about a minute away from going to get my dogs back in the house when I got a helluva scare. Apparently, my retriever-mix (aka, Blonde Houdini) busted the swivel catch … Continue reading My blonde Houdini was at it again, but I got the scare of my life to go with it… legally, that is.

“It’s time for another good idea, bad idea…”

To more precise, it's a "Thank-you-thank-you-thank-you! We need this so much and have for ages" idea. Then there's the "Oh, heavens, haven't you done enough to turn us into a regressive backwater on the world stage already?!" idea. So, turns out that we're getting what many have wondered about over the years (and I believe … Continue reading “It’s time for another good idea, bad idea…”

Q#181: To shave or not to shave (my head, as a woman, while job searching), that is the question…

Okay, my neck of the woods is under a heat advisory for the 3rd day in a row. Can't even take the dogs out before 7:45 pm because it's too freaking hot outside. And worse, my hair has been growing back the past few months, thick as always, but looks awful thanks to the big … Continue reading Q#181: To shave or not to shave (my head, as a woman, while job searching), that is the question…

Be well, folks. This is gonna be a battle for our lives (especially cancer patients)…

I was perusing social media when I found a screenshot that hit me hard. It was a text from someone in a VA hospital that calculated and administered chemo to patients. Because of some more draconian abortion laws (never repealed as Roe was in effect, which rendered them moot), some patients won't be able to … Continue reading Be well, folks. This is gonna be a battle for our lives (especially cancer patients)…

It only took 3 days after SCOTUS’ decision to throw out Roe. Females are crossing state lines for “services” in greater numbers. One’s a 10 year old girl.

I have to thank Beau of the Fifth Column for bringing this to our attention. I had to pull up the article he linked to after that and it's dismaying. We know there are likely far more young girls who will go through (or are currently going through) this situation, but this is truly terrible. … Continue reading It only took 3 days after SCOTUS’ decision to throw out Roe. Females are crossing state lines for “services” in greater numbers. One’s a 10 year old girl.

Blitz Q #180: As “pro-lifers” cheer Roe v. Wade’s demise, how do you think they will react to the sudden surge of men making appointments for vasectomies?

This whole Roe v Wade smashing just pisses me off and has left me sour the past few weeks. But at the same time, when I saw this article all over the social media feeds, I started to smile a bit, because I can't help but picture the faces of the Religious Right and pro-life-birth … Continue reading Blitz Q #180: As “pro-lifers” cheer Roe v. Wade’s demise, how do you think they will react to the sudden surge of men making appointments for vasectomies?

Well, I gave the site CounterSocial a shot… and somehow screwed it up to the point where I deleted it in a hurry…

In my search for new social media sites to use, one that started popping up was CounterSocial. I've looked into a few others and because of it's intention to keep privacy good (and the stories of Elon Musk buying Twitter making the site suddenly popular), I finally found some info on it. FYI--this writer has … Continue reading Well, I gave the site CounterSocial a shot… and somehow screwed it up to the point where I deleted it in a hurry…

I forgot how exhausting job searches are, and how NOT user friendly and time consuming the sites are… til today.

I should've figured waiting a couple weeks to try again with applications would've led to a drastic reduction in available jobs. So, I'm partially kicking myself, but at the same time, I was waiting for word (or a lack of word) to let me know if I should keep trying. I forgot that it'd be … Continue reading I forgot how exhausting job searches are, and how NOT user friendly and time consuming the sites are… til today.

Those days when your brain takes a staycation behind locked doors and you need it around to answer a bajillion questions…

It's a strange phenomenon when you get to the end of the evening and know that you'd done a lot in the course of the day, but for the life of you, if someone asked what, you'd be hard pressed to give an answer. I'm sure a big chunk of it was spent taking care … Continue reading Those days when your brain takes a staycation behind locked doors and you need it around to answer a bajillion questions…

Coming back online in time for the (saner) world’s ending, I suppose…

I've spent the past two days stewing over a certain court decision and not able to get much done. I did do some research into getting back on social media, but not FB. For some reason, in the verification process or whatever, I got locked out and no matter what I tried, I couldn't get … Continue reading Coming back online in time for the (saner) world’s ending, I suppose…
