Procrasti-Not-Us

Did you know that the term procrastination comes almost directly from the Latin procrastinatus? This is relevant because I have a new blog page on my main site that does not have a Latin title. This pains my Partner deeply. I think it pains my Partner almost as much as typing pains the hands of … Continue reading Procrasti-Not-Us

Déjà Voodoo

Update: I also posted this in the comments, but then I remembered that smarter folks than I often skip the comments. The author of the original blog post that inspired this one contacted me. She has taken it down and apologized. She also seemed like she was still beating herself up over it even after … Continue reading Déjà Voodoo

Messages in a Bottle #7.2: 525,600 Words

Written at some point prior in May 2018, intended for 5-26-18, my one-year blogiversary. The intro to this post (including why it is so delayed) is here. -- 525,600 minutes, 525,000 moments so dear. 525,600 minutes - how do you measure, measure a year? In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee. In … Continue reading Messages in a Bottle #7.2: 525,600 Words

Blog Awards Series #3/Messages in a Bottle #7.1: 525,600 Moments of Blog Awards

Today's Questions are courtesy of Ease the Ride. They are both the hardest questions and the easiest questions to answer of all the blog awards, because there are really only three of them, and I had previously written a blogiversary post that, in theory, should have answered all of them. It was the post I … Continue reading Blog Awards Series #3/Messages in a Bottle #7.1: 525,600 Moments of Blog Awards

Blog Awards Series #2: Veteran of the Blog Awards

Back in college, I was an RPG gamer. I didn't actually start with D&D, though. I started with a few more "freeform" type systems where I could create my character with all sorts of attributes that don't fit into the standard D&D class system. I'll be honest, D&D felt kind of limited after having freeform … Continue reading Blog Awards Series #2: Veteran of the Blog Awards

Blog Awards Series #1: The Internet is for Blog Awards

We could alternately title this post "What Do You Do with a Degree in STEM on Not FMLA?" I have never seen Avenue Q. This, in and of itself, is not that unusual, even for someone who likes musicals. I've never seen Hamilton, and that boils down to nothing more than the fact that even … Continue reading Blog Awards Series #1: The Internet is for Blog Awards

Improv #8: Dramatic Irony

*Knock Knock* "Who's there?" "An indecisive person" "An indecisive person who...?" "I have no idea. Who would you like me to be?" I just finished my first level of Improv training advanced enough that we actually get formal feedback from our instructor, who is a member of the main performing troupe for the theater, and … Continue reading Improv #8: Dramatic Irony

*Press It* Mental Health Awareness Blog Share

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and I’d like for all my blogging buddies to share the name of their site, and a few of you mental health disorders, in order for others to learn more about you, and mental illness. Goal? To break the stigma that is accompanied by Mental Health. My name is […] … Continue reading *Press It* Mental Health Awareness Blog Share

Improv* #6: A Meetup Group with Social Anxiety Tries to Walk into a Bar…

...The bartender says, "We don't serve folks with social anxiety here." The groups shrugs their shoulders and replies, 'Well, if that diagnosis doesn't work, how about depression, PTSD or ADHD? We've got a few options for what to call ourselves...' The bartender shrugs, "One of those ought to count. Come on in." You probably thought … Continue reading Improv* #6: A Meetup Group with Social Anxiety Tries to Walk into a Bar…

Where’s “Wool”-sie #8: New Yearling, New Ewe

I must confess: I got mutton to say this week. I'm on vacation. I won't even attempt to pull the wool over your eyes that this is one of my photos - though it certainly could be given the backdrop I'm looking at. I'm on vacation. I can't help but want to ram this point … Continue reading Where’s “Wool”-sie #8: New Yearling, New Ewe
