What the *F*CK* just happened?? (AKA the wretched trainwreck that was 2021)

I’ve known for 2.5 years that I would title 2021’s year-end post the way I did.  Hell, maybe I’ve known for 3 years. And I’ve been waiting to write it for a long time.  Not because it’s going to be a bang-up post, but because 2021 simply Would. Not. End.  It was like the Energizer … More What the *F*CK* just happened?? (AKA the wretched trainwreck that was 2021)

Random Thoughts [The ‘No, I haven’t gone totally off the deep-end’ Version] ~ December 2021

I had some red-letter days this week.  Days in which I received good news or achieved/accomplished something.  Those are good.  I want more.  Don’t worry, I’m working on it. It’s cliche to say I’ve been a busy little bee these days, but the truth is, I actually have been. I’ve been ghostwriting.  Yes, in all … More Random Thoughts [The ‘No, I haven’t gone totally off the deep-end’ Version] ~ December 2021

Grassy Ass Day

I would’ve written something sooner but I spent October grinding gears and finally gaining ground on a publishing platform, and I spent November trying to hang onto that momentum while losing the ability to breathe deeply, and having blood drawn and my chest scanned. We still don’t know what’s wrong. But let’s talk about what’s … More Grassy Ass Day

Dear Dad…

It’s that time of night again, and the muse is not only sitting on my shoulder but she’s stomping dents in it. I did one of these for your mom (when she was still alive) and practically everybody else who has passed away.  You don’t deserve any less, that’s for sure. I feel ashamed that … More Dear Dad…

‘I’ll be at V’s getting drunk, pretending I did not just order a hit on a relative’

Straight out of “Shameless”, which is fun to binge-watch on Netflix (what isn’t?  Lol), for those of y’all who might be living under my kind of rock. I almost missed the “Shameless” boat entirely, had it not been for Netflix’s algorithm suggestion using a thumbnail pic that featured a wooden fence, with, in sloppy painting: … More ‘I’ll be at V’s getting drunk, pretending I did not just order a hit on a relative’

Make the internet great again

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written one of those informational semi-self-help posts, so it’s probably time to do that again!  (Besides, it’s fun!) If you’re like me, you’ve probably noticed that the internet has become a bland, boring, repetitive, and increasingly bleak landscape.  Dark patterns and propaganda awaken the full-blown conspiracy theorist in … More Make the internet great again

Mystery solved (?) ~ The Brain Edition

(I totally wrote this at 1am, and it probably shows, so please forgive me for whatever shortfalls this post may have) 😉 Patience is a virtue.  Strangely enough, despite Moon in Aries, I have somehow cultivated tremendous patience.  Probably something to do with dealing with personality disorders, but I won’t digress further…this time 😉 But … More Mystery solved (?) ~ The Brain Edition

What do you mean being random is pointless?

Certain concepts and activities are underappreciated these days.  Like just hanging out and enjoying silence.  Like watching the kitty sleep.  Like the merit of a gray sky and bare trees (yes, I know it’s South Texas; the freeze hit us hard; there were botanical casualties). It’s in environments like this that thoughts germinate and bloom, … More What do you mean being random is pointless?
