Blitz Q #158: When your sleeping patterns have been interrupted for a while, which is the worse scenario…?

I've pondered this one for years and still can't make up my mind on which would be worse when you've had lousy sleep for a week or so, and then one morning either: A. You wake up, and you're wide awake. Not a trace of sleepiness, must've been a deep sleep. You're awake enough that … Continue reading Blitz Q #158: When your sleeping patterns have been interrupted for a while, which is the worse scenario…?

Absurd Q #150: What % of Christians will vote for Trump because they believe he’s the Antichrist & will ensure Jesus’ return?

DISCLAIMER: It has been forever since I've read Revelations all the way through (trying to get through Proverbs still... again) and some of what I'm remembering may well have to do more with cherry-picked stuff from the pulpit, or Milton, or Dante. I don't know. I'm trying to go with what little I remember.

I have some bean … Continue reading Q #142: How the hell did buying a refrigerator become so complicated?

Absurd Q#136: What the Hell was Humpty Dumpty supposed to be?

This was bugging me when I stumbled on a Ricky Gervais comedy snippet during lunch about dumb fairy tales. I love his attempts to figure out what's going on with the story. And of course as he tries to figure it out, all the other questions that have come to me over the years have … Continue reading Absurd Q#136: What the Hell was Humpty Dumpty supposed to be?

Absurd Q #135: What Will Trump’s Presidential Library Look Like?

After reading all the analyses of Dump's habits and tendencies towards the written word (and especially that ridiculous photo op), it got me thinking about presidential legacies. Especially since I'm firmly believing he SHALL be voted out in November, so somebody's gonna have to start making some plans on this one. FDR started the first … Continue reading Absurd Q #135: What Will Trump’s Presidential Library Look Like?

The “Half-Mile”: recap-ing questions #026 – 050 that made the cut.

Well, reached that halfway point of 100 questions I initially wanted to ask and get answers to. But I'm such a curious nutcase that I'm likely to make it 1000 easy (already got a notebook of 300+ more to tackle as topics, so why not?). So, for easier perusal, I'm providing the links to #026 … Continue reading The “Half-Mile”: recap-ing questions #026 – 050 that made the cut.

Falling Up, by Shel Silverstein

My Copy: 9780060248024 (image from fanpop.com) Shel Silverstein is the man. He's an amazing, fun writer, illustrator, and has loads of imagination to spare.
