My Copy: 9780553582024 (image from bn.com) Well, this one seemed to have too much and too little in its pages, all at the same time. Many characters are missing, which is disappointing because I kept going further and further, wanting to know what happened to X, or Y, or Z. This is a book for … Continue reading A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice & Fire #4), by George R. R. Martin
Thank you, Narrator from Fight Club, for making my point nicely. Yesterday was one of those days where nothing was going right and I ended up on my garage floor, hugging my dog and bawling my eyes out. I've been in a state of needing to be around people until it hurt too much to … Continue reading The Waiting Game Continues… just didn’t expect the weeping, wailing & dead-eyed staring at walls, too.
I'd love to know this one, because though I'm happy I'm getting plenty of hours, I'm wondering if there's going to be anything left of me by the end of this new month.

This phrase has been stuck in my head every time I think about Bush II/Dubya's administration. I always end up with this perplexed look on my face. When I first remembered … Continue reading #016–What did Bush II mean by “They hate us for our freedoms,” back in 2001?

I mean, I couldn't tell if the people I saw had stayed up all night and were still bleary-eyed or they were disappointed at the result. Trump is the winner. Something about that leaves a bad taste in my mouth, but I've been carrying that bad taste for over a year. One would think I'd be used to it by now.
