I was going back and forth working on financial crap (commence with the weeping, wailing, gnashing of teeth... and junk food consumption... dammit) and listening to some Reddit advice threads on YouTube. (Sometimes it's enlightening, sometimes it's trashy junk food for the brain... especially the caught "SO" cheating stories. Today I needed both after a … Continue reading Q#177–Have you ever tried “batch cooking” a month’s worth of reheat-able meals, & how did that work out?

Q#176: What are some good home remedies that can PREVENT chafing & other irritations during exercise (& not ruin your clothes or budget)?
Before anyone says anything, yes, I have several sticks of anti-chafe balm in my drawer. SEVERAL. However, like most anything meant to help with fitness or sports, it's gonna run the price up pretty bad. Though it's true a little can go a long way, they're gonna run out eventually and I hate the idea … Continue reading Q#176: What are some good home remedies that can PREVENT chafing & other irritations during exercise (& not ruin your clothes or budget)?
A mile & 3/4 recap: questions from the past year & change…
Every time I hit the quarter mark, I try to compile the lists in case you’re wondering (like I often do) the weird places my noggin likes to take me. Also, considering how the past year and change have gone (and the crazy times before... and more to come), maybe this’ll be a silly little … Continue reading A mile & 3/4 recap: questions from the past year & change…
Q#175: What makes cabbage weep & how can you stop it from happening?
This is something that's been bugging me for a while, and especially when I started getting those bagged salads again (ate my 2nd one this week so far and I'm jotting down ingredients to chop up so I can save on crap plastic and packaging in the future). I've learned that I really have to … Continue reading Q#175: What makes cabbage weep & how can you stop it from happening?
Q#174: What the hell is an ASMR video & how many uses do they have?
Without really knowing it, I've stumbled into the realm of ASMR vids on YouTube. I mean, I've heard the abbreviation a few times, seen the label, but have no real understanding of what it actually means. I've kept them on in the background while trying to read other stuff (while online, I use the Music … Continue reading Q#174: What the hell is an ASMR video & how many uses do they have?
Q# 173–Are air fryers a good energy-saving alternative to the traditional oven, & are they really worth having?
Migraines and colds have stopped me from even going online for most of a week, so I kept this question on the back burner til I could try and do some more research. I know, air fryers are all over the place and there are a ton of models. I'm thinking hard about getting one … Continue reading Q# 173–Are air fryers a good energy-saving alternative to the traditional oven, & are they really worth having?
(Absurd) Q #172– Who would win this stand-off: Gandalf (LOTR) or The Black Knight (MPatHG)?
(gif found on theawesomedaily.com) Out of the blue, after watching a few too many first reaction vids to Monty Python and the Holy Grail, I remembered an awesome t-shirt design from way-back-when and now I want the bloody thing. When I first saw it, it just made me laugh WAY too hard. And it got … Continue reading (Absurd) Q #172– Who would win this stand-off: Gandalf (LOTR) or The Black Knight (MPatHG)?
Blitz Q #171: Which is the better approach to life in the long run: to focus on the present OR focus on your future?
Partially thanks to my weird desire to belt out songs at random like a Disney princess (but not wanting to mangle the words), I've been finding and jotting down song lyrics in notebooks as well as inspirational quotes. I had tons of those things once before, but they had no rhyme or reason to them, … Continue reading Blitz Q #171: Which is the better approach to life in the long run: to focus on the present OR focus on your future?
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?
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”?
