Best laid plans, laundry baskets, & files

I had that broken white laundry basket sitting in my living room, getting ever fuller for over a month before tonight. I just spent over two hours trying to organize all the crap that was in it, and a milk crate full of magazines I hadn't had a chance to read or go through yet. … Continue reading Best laid plans, laundry baskets, & files

Passing up what could be a good opportunity, only to hope for a better one…

I'm relieved my bestie didn't freak on me and go "what the crap is wrong with you?" when I decided that me and this opportunity are gonna have to go our separate ways. Because of privacy, I'm not divulging much about my work or the company. The big thing is I was in the running … Continue reading Passing up what could be a good opportunity, only to hope for a better one…

Digging that side tunnel: a cousin to rock-bottom

I love Super Mario Bros. Anyhoo... I suppose being sick for over a solid week has just screwed me up. First it was allergies, then it was a full-blown cold. The weather can't make up it's mind. it's supposed to be in the 80 degree range this week then jump straight into summer, at least, … Continue reading Digging that side tunnel: a cousin to rock-bottom

And then I stop drinking it entirely. Maybe it's because it's cold outside and I should want something warm, or I … Continue reading Getting that water in this year…but it’s wintertime!

Work, work, work all the time…but my breaks are exhausting!

This is something I've noticed about myself when it comes to working and getting in the groove. I just want to keep going. I will avoid breaks just to make sure things go smoothly and I can finish my project when it's a doozy. Sometimes, though, I am forced to take breaks, so as long … Continue reading Work, work, work all the time…but my breaks are exhausting!

5 (okay, 6) Reasons why Halloween is my favorite commercialized holiday

Okay the image was actually from Return to Oz, but I like the look of Jack Pumpkinhead too much not to use it. There's something about the holidays that I just hate, and they come and go with the seasons. I'm annoyed by most holidays and wish we didn't make such a big deal about … Continue reading 5 (okay, 6) Reasons why Halloween is my favorite commercialized holiday

I’m tired of the “God’s Punishment” crap we keep getting from preachers wanting their 15 minutes (more) in the media…

...and another author I recommend seems to be in the same boat. Ah, how the media have bristled with evangelical preachers/ celebrities denouncing American society and insisting these storms and other natural phenomena are like God wagging it's finger at us and telling people to stop being naughty and repent. Yeah, because the couple in … Continue reading I’m tired of the “God’s Punishment” crap we keep getting from preachers wanting their 15 minutes (more) in the media…
