A mile & 3/4 recap: questions from the past year & change…

Every time I hit the quarter mark, I try to compile the lists in case you’re wondering (like I often do) the weird places my noggin likes to take me. Also, considering how the past year and change have gone (and the crazy times before... and more to come), maybe this’ll be a silly little … Continue reading A mile & 3/4 recap: questions from the past year & change…

The 5 Love Languages: The secret to love that lasts, by Gary Chapman

My Copy: 9780802412706 (image from 5lovelanguages.com) I'd heard a little about this book in the past, and I can't remember what finally made me select it and buy it for myself. Haven't been in a relationship in ages and with my odd family situation... well, maybe that was part of the incentive to do so. … Continue reading The 5 Love Languages: The secret to love that lasts, by Gary Chapman

Blitz Q #171: Which is the better approach to life in the long run: to focus on the present OR focus on your future?

Partially thanks to my weird desire to belt out songs at random like a Disney princess (but not wanting to mangle the words), I've been finding and jotting down song lyrics in notebooks as well as inspirational quotes. I had tons of those things once before, but they had no rhyme or reason to them, … Continue reading Blitz Q #171: Which is the better approach to life in the long run: to focus on the present OR focus on your future?

Blitz Q #165: Why did Bugs Bunny NEVER take “that left turn at Albuquerque?”

I suppose this is a dual question, because the inverse would be "what would've happened if Bugs Bunny FINALLY took that left turn?" I've always wondered that. I think half a dozen times or more you have a cartoon segment that has the ground pushed up in a path. Bugs pops out of the hole, … Continue reading Blitz Q #165: Why did Bugs Bunny NEVER take “that left turn at Albuquerque?”

More Capitol officers injured, 1 dead. WTF is wrong with people in this country?

It's still too new and we don't know enough yet, but it seems clear to me folks are either high on meth and other psychosis-inducing crap, or high on hate. I'm leaning toward both, considering the past year and change (and the past four before it). I just saw this a bit ago and was … Continue reading More Capitol officers injured, 1 dead.

Biting the bullet & making a tough choice that feels like lancing a boil… in the brain.

As fun and accomplished as yesterday turned out to be, today, sadly, was not quite so accomplished. At least, not on paper... but emotionally it's been something else. All I managed to do yesterday, I think I'd be generous to say I'd gotten 1/4 of the same done today. I woke up an hour late … Continue reading Biting the bullet & making a tough choice that feels like lancing a boil… in the brain.

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…?

Q#155: Is it time to re-assess teaching kids that they HAVE to share, especially siblings?

Okay, this is gonna require some explanation. And no, I haven't changed my last name to Scrooge for the hell of it. Bah, humbug, 2020! Anyway, I was looking at a lot of posts in Reddit and other places and noticed the surge of posts regarding "sharing" Christmas gifts. More specifically, parents insisting that something … Continue reading Q#155: Is it time to re-assess teaching kids that they HAVE to share, especially siblings?

A mile & a half: A recap of Q’s #126 – 150

Every time I hit the quarter mark, I try to compile the lists in case you’re wondering (like I often do) the weird places my noggin likes to take me. Also, considering this odd virus situation we’re all dealing with in some way, maybe this’ll be a silly little distraction. So, to make this easy, … Continue reading A mile & a half: A recap of Q’s #126 – 150

Needing Help from the Freelancers: I’m drowning in app options for task managing / productivity

I'm not exactly a luddite, but I'm one of those folks whom the weekly/ monthly planner book, pencil and highlighters have generally done a good enough job for decades. I hate having to sign in through services like Google (which has 30 things I don't care about and maybe 1 or 2 I need, but … Continue reading Needing Help from the Freelancers: I’m drowning in app options for task managing / productivity
