About this blog

Because I don't opine nearly enough elsewhere.  Actually this is a weird little repository for things that amuse me...which don't always amuse other people but I'm okay with that.

Leif Garrett

i want to thank @violynn that I needed Leif Garret circa 1970 something in my life.   No crushing on him even in the day, but I can appreciate great hair and a fun poppy cover of Runaround Sue. Leif is indeed on Spotify.  If you see a woman of a certain age singing along with him on her commute tomorrow...it's not me.  Way too dignified for thst.

Good thoughts requested for a cat who don't know how good they have it...

I got very little sleep last night because two of my cats (very indoor cats) got out yesterday afternoon.  They are brothers from the same litter and inseparable BFF. Having been a cat mommy for many years I knew they would be nearby and we did all the usual things - put something with my scent on the deck, called for them, had doors open so they could come home, wet food...the works.  We called for them, but during the day nothing.  Not uncommon - so a walk around at night I got a screamin

Someone please slap me...

And remind me that I am nothing if not pragmatic.  Idk who this optimist is who is currently inhabiting my body, but if someone knows how to drive her out so I can get my cynical little soul back I'd appreciate it. (this isn't about the interview.  The job sounded even worse than in the ad, which was pretty bad already and I'm always a good interview when I give zero fucks.) So later that day, after my pleasant but useless helping a lovely woman hone her interview techniques and a driv

TMI - do not read if freaked out by feminine sourced misery

You know how some women glide from one stage of life to the next effortlessly because their hormone changes are perfectly calculated and naturally administered with little disruption bringing only the good aspects of what is yet to be with none of the suffering? Yeah, me neither.  And if you're such a woman be grateful and I'm happy for you, but if you leave comments to that effect on this post I'll leave mean memes on your status.  Fair warning. My hormones never bothered to calibrate

I'm FINE...I just need a pastor and a time machine...apparently

Exposition:  I've had a very rough year and I've got some very bad patterns when it comes to men and I thought a little professional help to get some tools so I can stop falling on emotional landmines of my own design might be a good idea.   So I asked the p-doc I see once every 3 months for my ADHD scripts  for a referral to a therapist. I've been going to her for ~4 years - 15 min appointment, rarely in there more than 5 unless she's particularly chatty about her life. Even as it was

We've missed some holidays...

I've been behind on posting the holidays because...I get bored and find other mindless things to amuse me.  So a quick catch-up: March 20th - National Ravioli Day March 21st - National Common Courtesy and French Bread Days March 22nd - National Bavarian Crepes and National Goof Off Day (so like every day, sans crepes?) March 23rd - ooh - big day - needs bullet points National Chia Day   National Near Miss Day

What's your flouncing style?

There are as many ways to flounce as there are people who get butthurt over nothing.  What's your flouncing style? Fancy? Aggressive? Glamorous? Classic? Youthful? No fuss? Pithy? Or are you more of a jetsetter kind of flouncer? Do you helpfully offer to help others flounce with you? Here's to flouncers everywhere who don't always get the credit they deserve by making the forum a better place...by leaving. Some tried to eff

This won't go well...

I know nothing about plants except that they hate me.  Really you could not find someone with less knowledge on any topic.  Go ahead and try...I'll wait. See? But the tldr is when I was a kid we had a lilac bush and I loved it - every time I see one it takes me to the best parts of my childhood.  Every house I've lived in I've intended to plant one or two in memory of my parents and never did.  Lazy...that's why...do I need to reexamine this now? Anyway I just ordered two.  Yep -

I need some good thoughts sent my way...

I need you guys to be with me in spirit today...I'm about to do the riskiest thing I've ever done (and I've had sex on a second floor window ledge, so that's saying something)...just wish me luck that I can handle the repercussions, whatever they might be. But... Even though... which it totally could.  But... and I need to be free from the torture of what ifs...my brain will stay itchy until it's resolved and this seems less risky that opening up my skull to pour cala

They lick themselves so what do they know?

This morning the cake was intact.  Mr me when downstairs to toss some laundry in and watch an episode of Stargate while I was happily asleep and when he came back up stairs....this... apparently someone had left the cake uncovered and the guilty pup ate the entire top layer.  Without pulling the plate off the counter which I'll find impressive later. so glad I spent the time making it from scratch when the majority was enjoyed by a creature that regularly licks his own ass.  I'm pretty

Hey Life,,,Back Off!

Last Sunday morning minutes after waking up I brought one of my sons to ER. One ruptured appendix, torn colon, major abdominal abscess, case of severe peritonitis, paralytic ileus/non-mechanical obstruction of the small bowel*, and week of abject fear later we're finally home. This is why crazy high pain tolerance is scary.  Because he felt nothing until some flu like symptoms hours before...until all the pain he didn't feel before came home with a vengeance. Young adult nothing..

Life recap

Just checking in.  Have been crazy busy for the last month or so.  Doing what? (Asks no one...) working long hours on the biggest project of my career. dealing with the logistics of my divorce including now having to pump my own gas, which is ridiculous. keeping a low profile so until I'm capable of communicating without bleeding my barely contained messy psyche over even innocuous comments.  (You're welcome) coming to grips with my full blown Cinderella complex which

Yesterday....suuuuucked...

Exposition:  Monday night at about 6:00 pm I took a low dose of Effexor prescribed for hot flashes and other peri-menopause issues.  After an hour or two it knocked me on my ass...like a handful of Vicodin.  Like crashed on the couch and needed to be physically walked to the bedroom because way to out of it to be trusted walking past the stairs... Wake up the next morning all tingly...and not in a good way...but not necessarily bad yet.  Just like floaty.  Then I got up... the best t

Divorce - - not just a Tammy Wynette song

There won't be anything juicy to blog because he's a good person and we all know I'm delightful...not everything is forever.  He's fine, I'm fine and once the process is over I can get on with the business of living with the shame of my second failure at this marriage thing.

$50 my ass

I read an article today that the average cost of Thanksgiving to feed 10 people is just over $50.  In what universe? Here's my list of non-negotiable stuff or there is no holiday.  Granted some stuff I already have but in my quest to have one freaking holiday where I don't need to send someone to the store I make the entire list and go from there. Notice no beverages except milk  that's a different list.   And not doing crab puffs this time because man-child the younger went veget

That's butter lamb to us English speakers.  I admit I buy mine from the Polish market and my goal is to one year get it out of the package without breaking or swearing. If I really loved my family I'd hand craft this...but instead I'll just be impressed by those who do. Something seemed to have gone terribly awry in the life of this butter lamb...

And in other news...

I know - the current fizzy shit blizzard (CC DeVilletm) has captured the attention of many - so much so that we've missed some important world happenings: Yesterday was not only national pi day but also: National Learn About Butterflies Day Some butterflies have ears on their wings They taste with their feet They cannot fly if it's under 55 degrees

Lifehack...

When eating scrambled eggs informally at home (as opposed to eating them with the Queen) use a bowl rather than a plate. sides of the bowl make it much easier to ensure even distribution of ketchup. I don't know how the Queen does it...probably has a royal egg and ketchup smusher on staff. (turned out to me not enough ketchup, but I didn't want to retake pic after I added more since sides of bowl were then messy and I'm clearly too much of a professional breakfast photographer to

Yes, I'm looking down my nose at you...

But don't take it personally...I just got my first pair of bifocals and I'm just trying to see the screen.   between my normal rbf and fairly aloof demeanor this haughty pose to try and see is not going to help my rep and a cuddle bunny. i put it off way too long and I'm enjoying my new found clarity of vision except in the mirror.  My natural 20:100 and 20:200 blur takes years off my face and being able to see put them right back. i long for the days where life was boring ...I mi

There is one thing I love about Lent...

I'm not a big fan of fast food but the first Friday in Lent triggers a powerful craving... So good.  Once.  Then I'm back to whining about pizza and fish for the next 6 Fridays. I am giving up swearing.  Again.  It was also my New Year's resolution but I kind of forgot about it after a couple of hours... I need an accountability partner.  Like this guy.   &#

I've got sitcom issues...

Just to be clear I'm not snarking on the looks of  a child...I'm snarking on the stylists or whomever let this one go on tv with her hair like this... I had straight, hard to style hair and as a squirmy kid had my share of haircuts with uneven bangs and god knows what kind of layers happening down the sides...but no one put me on TV like that!  No one on the set for the entire time she was on the series had a brush?

Conflicted about Christmas

So why am I talking about Christmas before Halloween when I hate that?  Because we moved over the summer and I'm seeing a different side to this new neighborhood.  It seemed like a nice, normal, stereotypically suburban neighborhood when we got here which goes to show you should never move to a neighborhood without first checking it out in Holiday season. Within two square blocks we have a dozen or so excessively decorated houses for Halloween.  I don't mean a couple of window decals...I mean f

Are they out of their minds?

There are articles out there that give you ideas for things to do on your staycation.  The vast majority of them require effort...and leaving my couch.  Not the first time I've felt like an outlier in life - but ffs if I wanted to do stuff I'd go to work.   But I do like to plan and am a list making kind of girl so here is my to do list for day one of my staycation: Strawberry pancakes for breakfast Coffee out of my favorite Hello Kitty cup - not gulped out of a trav
