This one's mine: Have you ever had one of those mornings where your alarm clock goes off, so you turn it off, lay there a minute, then start going about your morning routine. Then, after (what feels like) a few minutes to half an hour later, the alarm clock goes off FOR REAL? And then … Continue reading Blitz Q# 183: Have you ever had a small thing happen that makes you question your sanity… for a few hours at least?
I was perusing social media when I found a screenshot that hit me hard. It was a text from someone in a VA hospital that calculated and administered chemo to patients. Because of some more draconian abortion laws (never repealed as Roe was in effect, which rendered them moot), some patients won't be able to … Continue reading Be well, folks. This is gonna be a battle for our lives (especially cancer patients)…
This whole Roe v Wade smashing just pisses me off and has left me sour the past few weeks. But at the same time, when I saw this article all over the social media feeds, I started to smile a bit, because I can't help but picture the faces of the Religious Right and pro-life-birth … Continue reading Blitz Q #180: As “pro-lifers” cheer Roe v. Wade’s demise, how do you think they will react to the sudden surge of men making appointments for vasectomies?
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…
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
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?
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?”
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. WTF is wrong with people in this country?
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.
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…?
