It hit me this morning after reading someone's blog post from yesterday about Dump, pissed off about his cancelled NJ trip. I mean, I can see Dump liking golf... he can walk around as slow as he wants and it's a very stereotypical "rich guy" thing to do. But it hit me--I think every president … Continue reading Absurd Q #140: Are people REQUIRED to play golf when they become president?
This was bugging me when I stumbled on a Ricky Gervais snippet during lunch. I love his attempts to figure out what's going on with the story (starts at 3:30): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfP8nQ6i5Bo And of course as he tries to figure it out, all the other questions that have come to me over the years have cropped … Continue reading Absurd Q#136: What the Hell was Humpty Dumpty supposed to be?
This popped into my head when a storm rolled in pretty hard and violently around 4:30 this morning. I laid there, thinking it was gonna be bad for a little bit, but got worse and worse. I'd just set out the last of my seeds and trays in the seed greenhouses last night before coming … Continue reading Q#131: How do you protect a food garden from a hurricane?
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 Questions I’ve had: the “mile & a quarter” — #101 – 125.
I've watched tons of true crime programs in the past few decades, and recently as I tried to clean (or get some rest while sick), I've had American Greed on. And when we get to the end of the episode, there are usually a bunch of charges, and one of the big ones always seems … Continue reading Blitz Q #122: What the heck is “wire fraud”?
My Copy: 9780470523018 (image from bn.com) Well, when you have to try and take care of yourself better, but don't want to rely on family scare tactics or a diagnosis that doesn't tell you much about what to expect or do, then this is a great book to use. It's pretty self-explanatory as far as … Continue reading Prediabetes for Dummies, by Alan L. Rubin, MD
At least, it sure seems that way in the media, but the more I read, the more it's about 50/50 in negative and positive coverage and reactions. This is something I can't understand, because you have to feed the baby when it's hungry, and breastfeeding is one way to do it. In the evolutionary sense, … Continue reading Q#120–Why are a lot of Americans squeamish about moms breast-feeding babies in public?
This one is bothering me for a lot of reasons. It makes me sad to think of the injuries and deaths occurring because of gun violence, naturally. More than that, it makes me very annoyed and afraid that this seems to pop up at least once a week on the local news. Just this morning … Continue reading Q#119– What is going through the mind of a person who is arguing with another in public, and then pulls out a gun?
This feels like a dumb question to me, but it's one that's been on my mind for some time. I had dreams about how I wanted my life to turn out: a good teaching job, hubby and kids, not filthy rich but comfortable enough and not one paycheck away from losing everything or being unable … Continue reading Q #117: How do you find your dreams again, or make new ones?
image from crookedbrains.net I've been missing in action because being the parental figure/food god of pawed or feathered beings wasn't enough. I had to add fins to the mix this week. A. Lot. Of. Fins (and antennae). At first I was going for flippers. I love turtles, always have. And I went to the pet … Continue reading Overcoming depression & a lack of artistic inspiration with a fish tank (or two)…
