This is a question I'd love to ask when it comes to infidelity. How many times has the story come about, in movies, Reddit stories, anecdotes, etc.? Someone comes home, hears noises/music, follows it, finds their significant other in bed with another person. And then the cheater says something like: "Omg, omg, omg, I'm sorry, … Continue reading Blitz Q #182: Which part (of the cheating) was the “mistake”?
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?
I've come to the real dread that I'm gonna just have to get over as fast as I can. My next door neighbor and I were working on something and she asked how the job search was going. I said I hadn't heard back at all in the past week and figured it was probably … Continue reading Another aspect of job searching I (almost) forgot about: Social-freaking-media…
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
I gave myself about 24 hours to make a final decision in this regard, and it would've made sense to take far longer... but I just couldn't help it. I know, it's a common excuse, for addicts and shopaholics and the like. Is it possible to be addicted to parakeets? Maybe this'll be a new … Continue reading I swore I wouldn’t… but yeah, got a few more feathered friends for myself for Christmas (facepalm).
Well, two weeks ago it was the plumbing madness. Last week it was an E.R. visit thanks to bad timing, a sharp knife, and a misplaced thumb. Now, it's Miss Aqua, the 3rd parakeet I'd bought. I'd expected the shoe to drop yesterday, if it was going to at all (Thursdays being what they've been, … Continue reading Seems my “shoe-drop” was a day later than expected… & it happened to one of my feathered family instead…
My Copy: 9781683506737 (image from goodreads.com) Well, a few months ago I read the prequel book to this one, Running on Empty, which deals with Childhood Emotional Neglect and recognizing the signs and such. That one was pretty in depth and geared more toward the personal and self-improvement. Running on Empty No More goes beyond … Continue reading Running on Empty No More: Transform your relationships with your partner, your parents, & your children, by Jonice Webb, PhD.
You probably already figured this was gonna be a downer post, and your intuition would be right. Read at your own discretion, because there's a lot of introspection--or attempted introspection--going on. I haven't heard from or said a word to my mother since July. One rabid, ranting phone call that began okay and then had … Continue reading I actually remembered Mother’s Day this year, & we’re not on speaking terms. Weird.
Oh man. I thought I had it made with my cranky parrot's old cage. I had to put a fat dowel rod down to block the one area my craftiest parakeet could exploit to get out, but otherwise it was nice, big, and roomy. But if I add two more parakeets, it's gonna get crowded. … Continue reading I Swore I Would Stop Shopping Online for a While… But My Parakeets Need Boyfriends, Among Other Things…
Possible parakeet parenthood. Yeah, I was tired enough to try and say that three times fast. Go ahead, I'll wait. I've got four parakeets: Pickle (clearly a boy), Sky (girl), Nana (girl) and Aqua (debatable because of coloring, thought male, however). And there was some indication that I might end up with babies even if … Continue reading A Crash Course in Possible Parakeet Parenthood…oh boy.
