Maybe you know the phenomenon of which I speak. Maybe you’ve seen the posts on blogs or Facebook. Maybe you’ve seen the tweets on Twitter. The ones in which you know something’s definitely up, but you’re not sure what it is, because the poster/tweeter/blogger doesn’t give much–if anything–by way of specifics. An example might be: … More In defense of vague-posting (vagueblogging, subtweeting, etc)
Indeed, I had to take extra care not to inadvertently type “Dairy” in the title. I think milk is commandeering my brain again. I probably (really) should resume my angelic adherence to a dairy-free existence. But dairy-free alternatives to dairy (yes, I meant to write it that way) translates to additional carbs, without the protein … More Diary of a Sunday [09-24-2017]
Spoiler Alert: I think everybody and practically everything is important somehow. I think that in the grand scheme, everything (and of course, everyone) happens for a reason. Nature saw fit to make sure that everything and everyone in this world came into existence, somehow or another. It thinks each object and one of us has … More How ‘important’ are we?

The band Red Hot Chili Peppers just has too many adjectives in its name for me to get behind. Like Limp Bizkit. His bizkit is limp. Bingo. One adjective. Boom. Done. ? ? ? ? ?
When Hollywood makes a movie out of a book, I’m frequently disappointed by the movie. Not always, but usually. The book is almost always better. In fact, I find books to be superior to movies in general. Why? Well, I’ll get right to the point, in my (stereo)typical list-making form. 😉 (Note: most of this … More Why books kick movies’ ass 😉
Sundays are usually blissfully quiet around here. I’m not the type that needs endless entertainment. Well, maybe I do–but maybe just not the same type of entertainment as the world at large. For example, I could watch cats most of the day. So long as I also have my phone nearby, to look up the … More Diary of a Sunday [9-17-2017]
The coming total solar eclipse in the US today is probably very well-known to most Americans. Yep, it’s today. A few cable TV channels started “pre-gaming” last night, complete with a little countdown timer thingy. They ran some “pre-eclipse specials”, discussing some of the coming live coverage, issuing a few cautions, and whatnot. As usual, … More Total eclipse of the brain…
(This post got really long. Sorry about that! I just felt the circumstances deserved deeper thought.) Granted, this event is old news. It happened a couple weeks ago already, so I’m a little late to the commentary pulpit. I had wanted to write about this sooner, but I needed to collect all of the pertinent … More A former fairground gypsy’s take on the Ohio State Fair ride accident
Confession time! I watch Dr Phil. There. I said it. And I’m not ashamed. He’s not that bad! I know what most of you are thinking: “OMG.” I know. I thought so, too. I thought, ugh, daytime TV. Talk about lowest common denominator and all that! Never. Ever. Just–no. I assumed that it was for … More Dr Phil is kinda cool (don’t walk away yet) 😉
I’m one of those hopeless nostalgics, the ones who lament about the fading away of the “good old days” and desperately, futilely tried to bring them back or recreate them somehow. Bah! Humbug. 😉 I think I’m finally beginning to embrace the newest Turn of the Century. In fact, I’m almost beginning to feel comfortable … More Maybe the 21st century *doesn’t* suck…
