Two new feathered friends in the home ended up becoming just one (but it’s not a bad thing!)

Last Monday I had a doctor's appointment and ended up getting two more parakeets (I didn't wanna leave just one in the display cage, waiting for an owner... and they were chatting with each other). Initially, I was curious about the grieving time and whether I SHOULD get another one--and when--for Dusty to be friends … Continue reading Two new feathered friends in the home ended up becoming just one (but it’s not a bad thing!)

My mind has been out of action for nearly a week… & it’s slowly coming back online.

If you were to ask me what I did this week, I'd be hard pressed to give you little more than a very vague answer. I know there's a bunch of things I was THINKING about doing, but somehow the week slipped by (and yes, I went to work...wasn't THAT far gone) and I realized … Continue reading My mind has been out of action for nearly a week… & it’s slowly coming back online.

Finally got to see Dune (Part 1)… & it was definitely worth the wait to me.

I'd been planning to see Dune opening weekend at the theater, but then after slicing my thumb open and being put on some painkillers that recommend you don't drive while on 'em...well, that plan went a bit bust. But I gotta admit a bit of relief that it didn't happen quite that way, because I … Continue reading Finally got to see Dune (Part 1)… & it was definitely worth the wait to me.

Seems my “shoe-drop” was a day later than expected… & it happened to one of my feathered family instead…

Well, two weeks ago it was the plumbing madness. Last week it was an E.R. visit thanks to bad timing, a sharp knife, and a misplaced thumb. Now, it's Miss Aqua, the 3rd parakeet I'd bought. I'd expected the shoe to drop yesterday, if it was going to at all (Thursdays being what they've been, … Continue reading Seems my “shoe-drop” was a day later than expected… & it happened to one of my feathered family instead…

Wanting to prep for NaNoWriMo… with a vengeance

I don't know how I've ended up in this same position every damned year. Most of October goes by and then, less than a week til November, I suddenly remember this thing I've aspired to do (note: mentioned and shrugged off until reminded by some random chance) and then the adrenaline hits and I kick … Continue reading Wanting to prep for NaNoWriMo… with a vengeance

More mishaps around the house; or, Gordon Ramsay’s voice is yelling in my head about my shoddy knife skills & a trip to the E.R….

Last Thursday it was plumbing trouble out the wazoo. This Thursday was a slipped knife meeting an unprotected thumb, resulting in a one-handed drive to the emergency room. And I'm feeling very akin to bumbling, boring, confused Arthur Dent: And also I'm dreading next Thursday, because what the hell is gonna come NEXT? I would've … Continue reading More mishaps around the house; or, Gordon Ramsay’s voice is yelling in my head about my shoddy knife skills & a trip to the E.R….

The things that happen when you’re not paying attention, or, how the hell did I not know there was a musical of Cyrano let alone a new film?!!

(stage photo from losextras.es) I've been on and offline a lot lately and suddenly, I saw something that made me crazy excited. I suppose this "musical theater" interest came at the right time, because I was about to watch an old MST3K episode (The Brain That Wouldn't Die, and yes, I know, by now they're … Continue reading The things that happen when you’re not paying attention, or, how the hell did I not know there was a musical of Cyrano let alone a new film?!!

Never thought I could hate my own state so much, but Texas insists on becoming a bad punchline to every backwards, off-color national joke.

Yes, I'm gonna bitch about the abortion bill. If that's not what you wanna read, there's a whole slew of other things on the net. Go have fun. Anyhoo-- This is not some bad joke I can at least chuckle at. I'm so far from laughing I'm probably gonna end up giving myself another migraine … Continue reading Never thought I could hate my own state so much, but Texas insists on becoming a bad punchline to every backwards, off-color national joke.

A piece of music & a film trailer have made my imagination very busy this past week & change…

I wasn't expecting my well... expectations, for lack of a better word, to change so drastically thanks to just some random browsing online in between work call-ins, power outages, and migraines. And today I overhauled my reading schedule to take advantage of my new plans. Now, I've written a little before about the 1984 film … Continue reading A piece of music & a film trailer have made my imagination very busy this past week & change…

Imagery, propaganda, & political gain at our expense, or, Beau hits it out of the park again…

I've been trying to play catchup with the news (was trying to look more into pandemic related stuff for obvious reasons) and have started delving into the state of the world. Afghanistan, of course, is the big one. So many little things were popping up I wasn't sure what to think or what was going … Continue reading Imagery, propaganda, & political gain at our expense, or, Beau hits it out of the park again…
