Usually I can’t remember what I had for breakfast yesterday. Oh, alright, you got me; I always remember what I ate the morning before, because it’s always the same: bacon. OK, so I cheated there. Made for a good opening cliché though, right? Heh. 😉 Alrighty then, let’s try another… I might not remember what … More Who remembers?
And now I’m going to finish the post I started writing 6 days ago (lol!) Please forgive me if it’s a little disjointed or repetitive or something! 😉 Minimalism is the trend. It’s not a new thing; Zen Buddhists and other cultures have been practicing it for years. But Americans (I admit, I’m not sure … More Minimalism, materialism, and morality
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?
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 😉
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…
I’m nice. Really, I am. I use phrases like “giving the benefit of the doubt” and I act on those phrases, way too often. Probably to my own detriment. And with advancing age, I’ve gotten nicer. I’m mellowing out. I’m learning to pick my battles. Because I’m figuring out what’s important and what isn’t. This … More I’d let you in (on the road), but… [PSA]
Well hell, I never believed in making lists in any particular order as a general rule (with a few exceptions), so why start now? 😉 “Joke ’em if they can’t take a f**k.” ~unknown (first heard from my partner) “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it’s time to pause and reflect.” … More Favorite quotes 🙂
Call me obstinate. Call me contrarian. Call me the Grinch who stole Christmas. Any one of those might fit, and therefore, I couldn’t argue with them–at least, not logically, and we all know how I love to oblige when logic says, “King me”. (Grin.) Because even though it’s not Sunday, I feel like stepping into … More There’s no ‘L’ in ‘team’
I was reading this fabulous post (and this one, too) by another talented blogger, and it reminded me of the fact that I’ve been harboring similar thoughts. Over the years, I’ve lived in places where I’ve heard people say that they “moved here to get away from it all”. I have one word for the … More Stop moving here to ‘get away from it all’
