Narcissism is a weapon, & storming the Capitol building in D.C. was a result…

I hadn't paid much attention to the news the past few weeks--just too tired and focused on health issues. So imagine my surprise when I get back to it two days ago, and all the stations had breaking news about the attempted takeover and trashing of the U.S. Capitol building! Of course, the event's been … Continue reading Narcissism is a weapon, & storming the Capitol building in D.C. was a result…

I think I FINALLY managed to bore myself out of my usual procrastination methods…

It's been a hard road to slog through, and I've fallen way behind on some things and barely touched others. My days and evenings have been full of obsessively playing video games, hoping to reach ever-elusive goals. And then, while doing that, making new reading lists for the year (because my files weren't saving right … Continue reading I think I FINALLY managed to bore myself out of my usual procrastination methods…

Republicans Did Their Homework

While I’m a big believer in the concept of fair play, when one side writes their own rules while trying to tear the “everybody” rules to pieces, it’s time for the other side to do something else. You can’t explain or reason with a hungry cannibal; it’s gonna tear you to pieces.

Republicans are calling their reset ‘originalism,’ ‘federalism’ – names that conjure images of our revolutionary roots and which sound patriotic. ‘Originalism’ is impossible to channel, so, unless you have a time machine, what we have is someone’s interpretation of originalism, most likely originalism as defined by the Federalist Society.

I stumbled on this piece of brilliance from a few years ago today. Not sure if this is the original writer or it's an oft-passed along piece, but after my question about "being the bigger person" a few days ago, this made my eyes bulge in surprise, because I'm sure there are a ton of … Continue reading “Don’t Rock The Boat”: a phrase & a metaphorical story about “crazy-makers” we all know…

Thanksgiving 2020 plans; or, it’s a Thursday that happens to feature turkey or ham…

I'm checking the weather report about tomorrow. My dogs had some "pup-kin pie," the filling that didn't fit in the pie shells that I poured into Pyrex bowls to cook separately (they were so happy). I'd planned to make baked potatoes for over a week and had some veggies I needed to use up, so … Continue reading Thanksgiving 2020 plans; or, it’s a Thursday that happens to feature turkey or ham…

Q #153: What’s your thought about “being the bigger person” in most situations?

We're in the middle of the holiday season and this is when the family drama most often gets going hard. I've also been listening to lots of stories online about tons of issues between friends, co-workers, family members... and--inevitably--someone's being asked to "be the bigger person." I think there are few phrases in the English … Continue reading Q #153: What’s your thought about “being the bigger person” in most situations?
