To quit or not to quit: my own sunk-cost fallacy dilemma over games and communication issues…

I lucked out in getting a week off of work (basically had to beg for it, but too many yard repairs and I needed some good weather to pull it off) and have spent much of the time outside. Because I overdid it yesterday and wanted to make sure the scratches I got from those … Continue reading To quit or not to quit: my own sunk-cost fallacy dilemma over games and communication issues…

A DIY day turned into a weekend & a half of “storage Tetris”…

I put together my shelves in my utility room (yeah, my utility room's becoming quite Frankenstein with all my additions and changes) a few months ago. There's always that weird wall where thanks to the A/C unit and/or refrigerator/oven hole, normal sized shelves are either too big or too small. A cabinet leaves too much … Continue reading A DIY day turned into a weekend & a half of “storage Tetris”…

I’ve been confused why the MSM keeps saying the economy is getting better. Last night, someone said what was bothering me…

Yeah, I just had to go to the dollar store around the corner the other day to get some stuff and maybe get a few extra staples for the pantry (oils, sugar, etc.) And imagine my surprise when the half shelf-set of Ramen was totally empty. The cheapest, quick-make, versatile food on the shelf was … Continue reading I’ve been confused why the MSM keeps saying the economy is getting better.

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…”

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.

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.

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…

Another aspect of job searching I (almost) forgot about: Social-freaking-media…

I've come to the real dread that I'm gonna just have to get over as fast as I can. My next door neighbor and I were working on something and she asked how the job search was going. I said I hadn't heard back at all in the past week and figured it was probably … Continue reading Another aspect of job searching I (almost) forgot about: Social-freaking-media…
