I swore I wouldn’t… but yeah, got a few more feathered friends for myself for Christmas (facepalm).

I gave myself about 24 hours to make a final decision in this regard, and it would've made sense to take far longer... but I just couldn't help it. I know, it's a common excuse, for addicts and shopaholics and the like. Is it possible to be addicted to parakeets? Maybe this'll be a new … Continue reading I swore I wouldn’t… but yeah, got a few more feathered friends for myself for Christmas (facepalm).

When you’re an impulsive little twerp, “Maybe next year” is more ambitious than it is a form of pessimistic procrastination.

My bank account and my to-do list are the best ways to determine if I'm an impulsive little twerp, and I would definitely put myself in that category. I get sudden ideas that I'd love to act on, and then I try hard to go for them. It's good in some respects, but when money's … Continue reading When you’re an impulsive little twerp, “Maybe next year” is more ambitious than it is a form of pessimistic procrastination.

It’s time to stop collecting & start practicing…or else, what’s the point?

That right up there is my newest guitar...and it's a freaking beauty. And as far as I'm concerned, it's my LAST guitar...unless somebody just up and gives me one for some reason later. I've got plenty of instruments right now, so I think I'll just keep to what I've got and put the rest on … Continue reading It’s time to stop collecting & start practicing…or else, what’s the point?

Impulse, Impatience & (perhaps) overly ambitious…

I'm stuck in this mental/physical limbo where I'm bursting to create while emulating Homer Simpson from the Treehouse of Horror sketch, "The Shinning," when he repeated "No TV and no beer make homer go crazy." I think it's a desperate attempt to build my life. Roughly 16 months ago I had thought long and hard … Continue reading Impulse, Impatience & (perhaps) overly ambitious…

Way Out of My League: a newbie browses the world of electric guitars

I blame this article about the Fender Jazzmaster from last week for getting me into this train of thought. It made me wonder that the hell a Jazzmaster was, and then about electric guitars in general. I made a mistake last Saturday night, when I stopped thinking and went to ask those questions. More than … Continue reading Way Out of My League: a newbie browses the world of electric guitars

I had an impulsive, “foolishly-optimistic,” clothes-shopping day, because none of it fits me yet…

Yeah, that's the "foolishly-optimistic" part. I'll just wait for the facepalming to end before continuing...yeah... It started when I had to go to the mall and get some new work clothes. I've been wearing the same pants and such for work the past few years, and they're starting to fade and wear out. I'm amazed … Continue reading I had an impulsive, “foolishly-optimistic,” clothes-shopping day, because none of it fits me yet…

Hello, I’m Tally and I’m an addict…

I hate to admit that I've gotten just about NOTHING done in the past week, mostly because I was spending hours and hours trying to catch up on my reading goals, updating my reading catalog, picking out books for my wish list, and buying books online I really had no business buying. All this craziness … Continue reading Hello, I’m Tally and I’m an addict…
