Q #163: What’s the best way to get rid of slimy/sticky hands after cutting up melons, (because soap doesn’t seem to work that well)?

I went a bit nuts last week when I was at the store and they had sales on all kinds of melons. So, being an impulsive twerp, I bought one of just about every kind I could. Some I weren't able to use in time (I found myself in the middle of an infestation in … Continue reading Q #163: What’s the best way to get rid of slimy/sticky hands after cutting up melons, (because soap doesn’t seem to work that well)?

The oh-so important core of your body, & why it’s a damned nuisance, too.

Maybe I'm being a bit hyperbolic, but I can't help it. I'd finally gotten a chance to sit down after deep cleaning both fish tanks and hauling water most of the afternoon. I was happy to find my internet back on and working after a day without. When I had to get up and get … Continue reading The oh-so important core of your body, & why it’s a damned nuisance, too.

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…?

My near-week of dizzy hell points most likely to Vestibular Migraines

Even now, I'm typing this in my darkened living room, occasionally looking at the TV screen with one eye shut from 10 feet away to keep out the super-brightness coming through the blinds. I just went online out of desperation and ordered some indoor migraine/gamer glasses to keep on the end table and desk in … Continue reading My near-week of dizzy hell points most likely to Vestibular Migraines

Maybe it’s the novelty of new appliances in the house, but I just might enjoy doing the laundry from now on…

I'm gonna sound like a 1950s housewife, stereotypically gushing about the latest chore-saving gadget that my loving husband bought for me to keep me a happy modern woman. Ugh. (Cool colors, though.) I'm not married and I picked out my new washer and dryer on my lonesome after weeks of comparison shopping over the internet. … Continue reading Maybe it’s the novelty of new appliances in the house, but I just might enjoy doing the laundry from now on…

Actor Samuel L. Jackson Gives Us A Message Regarding Covid-19

I fully credit Xena from the blog We Hold These Truths to Be Self Evident for posting this one yesterday. It was a much needed laugh, but damned true, too. If you haven't seen him read this poem yet, then you've missed something short and sweet. Definitely not work friendly, though, because--you know--it's Samuel L. … Continue reading Actor Samuel L. Jackson Gives Us A Message Regarding Covid-19

I used to be a free-hugger, now I’m not so sure I can go back to it…

Several years ago--one of my first blog posts, actually--I wrote "Why I am a Free-Hugger". Some people were a bit mystified as to what it was about or what I was doing, even as an introvert. It was a way to give people a chance to chat or have a good moment in a busy … Continue reading I used to be a free-hugger, now I’m not so sure I can go back to it…

The Secret of Cooking & Comedy is the same: timing

I had a major victory today for my life before I went to work. At least, for my immediate present and future. I finished the dishes. Considering I'd been avoiding them for a week, that's a helluva accomplishment these days. I can't help it. I HATE doing the dishes. Even something so mundane as unloading … Continue reading The Secret of Cooking & Comedy is the same: timing

Random thoughts I’m having while reading the Book of Genesis…

Image from Gary Larson's The Far Side (I love that panel). Anyhoo, I've had an interesting time trying to get into re-reading the Bible, both versions I have, side by side so I get the gist and context. I genuinely feel like I need to give the Bible a fair shake, to study it for … Continue reading Random thoughts I’m having while reading the Book of Genesis…

Rain, Rain, are you gonna “go away” all-freaking-ready?!!!

I think we've finally had 24 hours without rain, maybe even 30. The temperature is doing a see-saw, which isn't so pleasant, but at least it's not raining. I swear, every time I talked to somebody the past month, it was raining. Rain delayed my moving out of the house. Rain delayed moving the actual … Continue reading Rain, Rain, are you gonna “go away” all-freaking-ready?!!!
