I need to divorce pizza & learn to never let it back in the door…

There's always that weakness that you don't know is a weakness until you're sitting there going, "oh, hell--did I REALLY just do that AGAIN?" In my case, that's pizza. There are other foods that I ingest that don't know the meaning of the word "moderation", but pizza is the big one. I think it's all … Continue reading I need to divorce pizza & learn to never let it back in the door…

I’m almost at the point where I will be free to start over… & I’m wondering how to start.

It's been a pretty insane little week with people coming in and me trying to just get through waiting for the newbie to get done with training. I have to work tomorrow and I wish I didn't because I'm getting more headaches more often and I just want to be away from work. It kinda … Continue reading I’m almost at the point where I will be free to start over… & I’m wondering how to start.

When “you get what you pay for” means you’ve lost not just money, but time as well.

I wasn't feeling very good today, just general tiredness from the storm the night before waking me up several times. I finished most of my notebook regarding plants I'm working with and any specs and instructions I can find on them, and then went to check on what I already had planted versus what was … Continue reading When “you get what you pay for” means you’ve lost not just money, but time as well.

#093–Why The Hell is Disney Making Great Animated Films from the 1990s into Live Action Films Now?

My initial theory: they're totally out of ideas and have gone to the reduce, reuse, recycle bin. Why? They banked everything on the Marvel and smiled and raked in the dough, and then a couple years ago went "wait, what's supposed to hit the theaters once Endgame's done?" Crap--we need time to think! I didn't … Continue reading #093–Why The Hell is Disney Making Great Animated Films from the 1990s into Live Action Films Now?

#090–When can/should you go from healing a relationship to cutting & running?

I'm a bit ticked off because I was hoping that by now, I'd be listening to a presentation and lecture on the other side of Houston. Instead, here I am cleaning and wondering if a family friend is going to show up or not...again. Seth Andrews is in Houston and I really wanted to hear … Continue reading #090–When can/should you go from healing a relationship to cutting & running?

Sunday, Boring Sunday: God, Guns, Family, Friends, & Paranoia… I’ve had enough.

First of all: This re-reading the Bible thing is going to take a LOOOONNNNG time. I'm not even halfway through Genesis and I've already got about 10 pages of notes and questions. Yes, I'm taking the Bible for what it is, reading it in order. All I can say is I'm remembering why I got … Continue reading Sunday, Boring Sunday: God, Guns, Family, Friends, & Paranoia… I’ve had enough.

The Home Repair Files; or When to Chuck it All In and Go Shopping For a New Place…

Maybe it's my impatience at work, but my uncle had a random thought about cost-effectiveness, and put the flea in my aunt's ear. She brought up something I'd been thinking about for 10 years or more...getting rid of this place and starting over with a better one. There are three things this place has going … Continue reading The Home Repair Files; or When to Chuck it All In and Go Shopping For a New Place…

“The Merchant of Venice,” from The Oxford Shakespeare: The Complete Works, by W. Shakespeare

I had a hard time getting through this play. I tried four times to get into it, and eventually I got enough out of it to get what was going on...somewhat. Maybe it's just been a bad month. I know I've been way behind on reading lately and my goals will suffer for it, and … Continue reading “The Merchant of Venice,” from The Oxford Shakespeare: The Complete Works, by W. Shakespeare
