I Swore I Would Stop Shopping Online for a While… But My Parakeets Need Boyfriends, Among Other Things…

Oh man. I thought I had it made with my cranky parrot's old cage. I had to put a fat dowel rod down to block the one area my craftiest parakeet could exploit to get out, but otherwise it was nice, big, and roomy. But if I add two more parakeets, it's gonna get crowded. … Continue reading I Swore I Would Stop Shopping Online for a While… But My Parakeets Need Boyfriends, Among Other Things…

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…?

Narcissism is a weapon, & storming the Capitol building in D.C. was a result…

I hadn't paid much attention to the news the past few weeks--just too tired and focused on health issues. So imagine my surprise when I get back to it two days ago, and all the stations had breaking news about the attempted takeover and trashing of the U.S. Capitol building! Of course, the event's been … Continue reading Narcissism is a weapon, & storming the Capitol building in D.C. was a result…

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…

Never had a surgical procedure done before… boring & interesting in turns.

And by surgical procedure, I mean anything that puts you out entirely with anesthetic. I've had locals shot into my mouth to make it easier to fix fillings or yank out teeth (my dentist has probably made a small fortune off my mouth). I've been to a few specialists about my core area issues (digestive … Continue reading Never had a surgical procedure done before… boring & interesting in turns.

I installed bidets in my house this weekend. 7 things to keep in mind about ’em…

I had never actually seen a bidet before and certainly never used one until now. And what do I think after three days? I am kicking myself for not learning about & installing one of these years ago! I can only imagine how much healthier & cleaner I'd have felt (and how much less toilet … Continue reading I installed bidets in my house this weekend. 7 things to keep in mind about ’em…

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.
