I think this is the first election in my life where I'll be cheering like mad or screaming in upset and anger while reaching for a bottle to get drunk as fast as humanly possible. And I've never been tipsy, let alone drunk. I can partially blame my general health. I'm in that point my … Continue reading Election anxiety may well kill me if I don’t calm down…
A few days ago, down in the dumps and letting things wash over me, I thought about really quitting my job. Now, I'm of the opinion that I need to hand in my two weeks notice today. Without a safety net. Without a job lined up and already ready to go. Because all I know … Continue reading Revisiting my plans to quit my job: to jump without a safety net, or not?
I can't think of the last time I honestly sat here and said to myself "yeah, time to start looking for another job." Not that I figured I'd be at this one forever, but it had some things going for it, and I was used to it and didn't mind it. But apparently, I like … Continue reading I’m considering quitting my job for possibly silly (or just minuscule) reasons…
It hit me this morning after reading someone's blog post from yesterday about Dump, pissed off about his cancelled NJ trip. I mean, I can see Dump liking golf... he can walk around as slow as he wants and it's a very stereotypical "rich guy" thing to do. But it hit me--I think every president … Continue reading Absurd Q #140: Are people REQUIRED to play golf when they become president?
Yeah, after dwelling on weirdness that happened today (but I was too headachy to think about it much), this idea popped into my mind. Anybody I work with would call me a generally positive person, though I may let out a little steam when there's something frustrating going on. That's for one-on-one discussions whenever possible, … Continue reading How an outwardly positive person can be infested with negative thoughts.
I admit, I don't really go for the Woo anymore. I used to get rocks and cool crystals and stuff when I was a kid, and like many an X-Files fan (the Mulder years, anyway), I considered or subscribed to conspiracy theories or the supernatural or paranormal and what was possible or impossible. However, I … Continue reading When emotions have become too damned much in a short time: an empath searches for sanity.
I'm stuck in a situation where I have to work open to close several days in a row. I've got two more (thankfully shorter) days of this to go, and the list of things that I should be doing is ever increasing. Storm violence led to a lack of sleep (which I'm itching to get … Continue reading Sometimes, you just have to let yourself be lazy.

I was drinking coffee on my porch a few days ago, enjoying the morning weather when I was hit by something. My old house used to be a lot longer than the one I have now, and there was a carport attached for my grandma's car (she moved out over 20 years ago). Eventually, my … Continue reading Bright Ideas, Happy Accidents, Giving it all away & Making a sale. Or, one damned busy Friday I didn’t expect…
I want to shout out to Broadside for their great post on rights and responsibilities, and also having a link to one of the most informative things I've seen all month. It's from ScienceMag.com, and it's simply titled "How Does Coronavirus Kill?" This is very informative and may help some people (who don't care, aren't … Continue reading From ScienceMag.com: How Does Coronavirus Kill?
