It's almost time for me to head to bed right now, but my feet are still throbbing from walking around all day on the dirtiest floor (despite some intense cleaning efforts the past few days). With all the hidden places dirt's been accumulating, I'm gonna have to do my "shoes at the door" rule again … Continue reading Being me, I just HAD to tackle the hardest area of my house far too early…
This one's been bugging me for a long time, and certainly the past couple of weeks with the Texas Winter Catastrophuck of 2021. There's a line about some government funding that would help the corporations during the Iraq War from Fahrenheit 9/11. One of the attendees at a conference said, "It's gonna be good for … Continue reading Q #159: When has something run by the American government been good for corporations AND the people at the same time?
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?
I gotta say, it's been nearly a week since I've had roommates come in, the family that came to live with me for a little while, and a ton of things have happened. At the same time, not so much. But there's a few little lessons I've learned over the days: When the neighbor volun-tells … Continue reading First lessons I’ve learned about having roommates in this first week
I fully credit Xena from the blog We Hold These Truths to Be Self Evident for posting this one yesterday. It was a much needed laugh, but damned true, too. If you haven't seen him read this poem yet, then you've missed something short and sweet. Definitely not work friendly, though, because--you know--it's Samuel L. … Continue reading Actor Samuel L. Jackson Gives Us A Message Regarding Covid-19
Welp, not gonna turn out the way I thought. What I figured might be a bad twisted ankle that just needed icing and resting the rest of the night kept me awake every time I moved it. So I sucked it up and went to a local E.R.--bad sprain. When I described what happened to … Continue reading Personal Promises, Making Changes, and Murphy’s Law, PART 2.
My Copy: 9781935429029 (image from bn.com) The gang is back, and Tetsuo is determined to find and meet Akira...whatever that means. According to the adults, it can only mean something really, really bad. Akira (volume 2) focuses again on the teens Kaneda, Tetsuo, Kei and the experimental children (Kyoko, Masaru, and Takashi). The characters and … Continue reading Akira (volume 2), by Katsuhiro Otomo
I forgot the downside of doing so much cleaning and ripping carpet out when I can't sleep at 3 a.m: dust allergies out the wazoo. That's been me the past few days. There's so much that needs to be done to get this house in order so that all the junk is gone, items are … Continue reading A Long Week to Work and Think…
I was THIS close to just letting the hunger headache stick around and annoy me all day rather than eat. My habits and my tastes have gotten THAT bad, people. THAT BAD. I've written before about not wanting to eat anything because all I seem to get is fast food and stuff that flat out … Continue reading This Week’s Experiment: getting away from fast food for a week… and hopefully forever.
My Copy: 9780316207003 (image from pinterest) I wasn't sure if this was a book I'd keep reading or put down. When I had nothing better to do, I started reading it again, and just kept going til I finished it. It's been probably 16 hours since I started it, and I was impressed. Confessions of … Continue reading Confessions of a Murder Suspect, by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro
