Imitation is the Sincerest Form of A$$hole-ery

Beckie of Beckie's Mental Mess, Ashley of Mental Health @ Home and Fandango of This, That and The Other (which is a new blog to me, I guess proving that even the most ridiculous of circumstances can expand a fellow blogger's audience?) have all posted recently about tygpress.com plagiarizing...well, pretty much everyone's blogs. They are … Continue reading Imitation is the Sincerest Form of A$$hole-ery

Messages in a Bottle #15: Sharkna-Don’t-Mess-with-Me

After a few blessed days of rain, it has resumed being entirely too hot to live, and my creative juices are currently leaking out my ears and puddling on the floor. But, at least my brain is only melting, rather than being constructed entirely out of (presumably also melting) cheez whiz. I am fully lucid … Continue reading Messages in a Bottle #15: Sharkna-Don’t-Mess-with-Me

Where’s Whoopsie #21: Tea Hydration Solutions

Lavender: “Are you sure I should keep buying Gatorade to function out in public? I could just stop going anywhere until it cools down. In theory, in two or three months it will start being human-livable again.” Partner: “Complain less. Guzzle more. You are the only one being weird about paying for the hydration drinks … Continue reading Where’s Whoopsie #21: Tea Hydration Solutions

End-User Experience

Movie theaters have become events in and of themselves. One that opened near us recently has a full restaurant inside of it where patrons can eat at traditional tables before the movie - or order their carnitas nachos to be served at tables inside the theater while they recline in their heated leather seats. The … Continue reading End-User Experience

Shooting for the Spoons

A lot of popular wisdom is rather dubious when actually examined. For instance, the common career advice to, "Shoot for the moon. If you miss, you will still land among the stars." Unless the flat-Earthers know something I really don't, even good old Sol is much further away from us than the moon... Another bit of … Continue reading Shooting for the Spoons

You’ve Been Catfooded!

Did I ever mention that my Partner and I are weird people? Like "gallows humor" and "eat anything on the planet at least once" weird? Or that we're advocates for social justice? If not, you have officially been warned. I may have mentioned before about how my kitty has PTSD from being abused, starved and … Continue reading You’ve Been Catfooded!

Where’s Whoopsie #17: Two-Ply Christmas Lullaby

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me An extra roll of TP.   On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Two bottles of Miralax and an extra roll of TP.   On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Three gluten-free … Continue reading Where’s Whoopsie #17: Two-Ply Christmas Lullaby

Blog Awards Series #5: B is for Blog Awards

I am not saying "B is for Bedbugs," because supposedly things are "happening" with that. The home is hiring a new exterminator to come tomorrow and - again supposedly - is going to deal with the code violations that resulted in the scary green notice. I'm not sure how much faith I have in either … Continue reading Blog Awards Series #5: B is for Blog Awards

Where’s Whoopsie #11/Improv #7: Potty Mouth

What can I say? It's been a bit of a $h177y week. Trauma guilt (see comments on that post if you want to hear about the new turd that dropped this week) is a dirty job. Dirty jobs call for Dirty Jobs. I've been watching a lot of reality t.v. this week because that's where … Continue reading Where’s Whoopsie #11/Improv #7: Potty Mouth

I Love You More than Salt

Today has been lousy. There's no other way to say it. Its lousiness has stemmed primarily from two causes: dysautonomia and C-PTSD. (I will write dysautonomia and C-PTSD officially, but I could just as easily have claimed dysautonomia and office politics. The two are kind of synonymous when C-PTSD views any perturbations in power dynamics … Continue reading I Love You More than Salt
