A fascinating clue about why my attempts to create good habits to workout & eat better have failed for years…

Lately I've been catching videos in my YouTube feed from Obese to Beast (which I think is rather interesting and I like his measured approach to analyzing things and answering questions). He made a reaction video to a TED Talk about women's inability to lose weight. I listened to a couple of minutes of it, … Continue reading A fascinating clue about why my attempts to create good habits to workout & eat better have failed for years…

I never thought there was something in my life that could “trigger” me, & then it happened…

I'm going to bed right after I finish this and a little wine to calm my nerves. I spent the past two hours trying to figure out what the fuck just happened and why... and then trying NOT to think about why too much before I put myself right back into that position. Vicious cycle, … Continue reading I never thought there was something in my life that could “trigger” me, & then it happened…

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.

I’m angry at the Republicans for their concerted campaign to destroy what they feel is the America that liberals made, and replace it with America as they feel it should be, as they believe our forefathers imagined it. If it feels like they are tearing down our legacy of laws and traditions that is because they are. Who could they get that was more suited than Trump to the task of deconstructing America? 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. George Washington was a Federalist. He fought for a strong central government. The modern Federalist Society says that States Rights have been…

How an outwardly positive person can be infested with negative thoughts.

Yeah, after dwelling on weirdness that happened today (but I was too headachy to think about it much), this idea popped into my mind. Anybody I work with would call me a generally positive person, though I may let out a little steam when there's something frustrating going on. That's for one-on-one discussions whenever possible, … Continue reading How an outwardly positive person can be infested with negative thoughts.

#108– When & how often do parents usually start the “when are you going to have kids?” discussion?

I bring this up because somehow I've never had this point come up with my parents:  regarding when I'd want to have kids, how many, or what I think it would be like. It occurred to me after this weekend that they'd never asked, either. That's where I think the weekend with mom really went … Continue reading #108– When & how often do parents usually start the “when are you going to have kids?” discussion?

Health, Wealth & Happiness: Has the Prosperity Gospel Overshadowed the Gospel of Christ?, by D.W. Jones & R. S. Woodbridge

My Copy: 9780825429309 (image from bn.com) It's not a long read. Not at all. And the title pretty much speaks for itself regarding what the book is about: answering the question of the prosperity gospel as compared to the Bible's teachings. It's not an exhaustive bit of research (A Different Gospel started that one about … Continue reading Health, Wealth & Happiness: Has the Prosperity Gospel Overshadowed the Gospel of Christ?, by D.W.

#078–Blitz Q: Did the Japanese Have & Use Tanks in WW2?

I guess that pic itself answers that. I'm sure there's a "whaaaa???" going on in some of your heads right now, because I'm sure the answer is "of course the Japanese army had tanks." But like the tree falling in the woods, if nobody talks about it, how can we know? Seriously. I don't think … Continue reading #078–Blitz Q: Did the Japanese Have & Use Tanks in WW2?

Getting My Hopes Up After Weeks of Disappointment, But When Opportunity is Right There…

I gotta say, I'm soooo glad that I decided to stop in my fave Starbucks tonight for a cup of coffee and to get some job search lists and resumes done. I almost got some fast food (boo!) and went home, but nope... I came at a great time. My original blog post for tonight … Continue reading Getting My Hopes Up After Weeks of Disappointment, But When Opportunity is Right There…

A pseudo-Liberal and a Conservative walk into a diner. (Sigh) Political discussion ensues…

I was supposed to work yesterday, but ended up getting called off. So, in a state of tiredness and profound boredom, I decided to leave the house and hang out at Denny's with a book and my writing stuff. I felt like I'd rather die than sit there and tune out the living room TV … Continue reading A pseudo-Liberal and a Conservative walk into a diner. (Sigh) Political discussion ensues…

It’s a boring, boring Sunday, and I’m almost twitching from social withdrawal…and Dinosaurs

I gotta thank my sister-by-choice for giving me that last little gem--it was enough to wake me up and let me deal with another few hours away from the coffee shop/second home. I was chuckling, skeptical, and weirded out while watching that video "Donald Trump is a Dinosaur." It was enough to break through the … Continue reading It’s a boring, boring Sunday, and I’m almost twitching from social withdrawal…and Dinosaurs
