One Day at a Time-

What is it about us crazy humans that makes us think that whatever pace we are progressing at is NOT fast enough? So and so has lost ALL THIS WEIGHT and I only lost a pound! Or, look at his abs! They are an EIGHT PACK and I am a fat slug! Look, y’all. Rome… Continue reading One Day at a Time-

Mo’ Money, Mo’ Money

Why is it that money is so much FUN to spend, yet so horrifically boring to figure out how to make it start working for you, instead of you always working for it?  You would think that anything involved in keeping more of those luscious little greenbacks in my hot little hand would be fascinating…Yah,… Continue reading Mo’ Money, Mo’ Money

Google just told me “Happy Birthday”

Although I am terribly flattered, I can’t help but think “Hello, Skynet!”.  Because I do use Google +, Google Circles, Hangouts and the search option so much that I really should work for them, or at least own large shares of the company.  So, maybe this is all just part of the Google courting process, and I… Continue reading Google just told me “Happy Birthday”

Today’s Rant

I am so glad that I was born here in America.  We may have our issues, everyone knows that- but at least female officers are not subjected to this idiocy! How can a government in 2014 still enforce such patriarchal, misogynistic laws?   Female Recruits REQUIRED to take virginity tests!

Not my Monkeys, Not my Circus

You ever have to deal with someone or a group of people that are just always so full of drama/angst/self-pity that you want to just bang your head repeatedly against something hard until you knock yourself unconscious?  We will just say that I have more than my fair share in my family. This is my… Continue reading Not my Monkeys, Not my Circus

THIS is why I love runners!

We tend to be of a slightly different mind set from “normal” people.  I mean, why would anyone willingly run several miles at a time unless they are being chased by a psycho-serial killer clown or rabid wolf-bear hybrids? What type of absolute nut job would WANT to run 13.1 miles (or 26.2 or 50+)?  Especially… Continue reading THIS is why I love runners!

From Hard Ass to Candy Ass; The joys of hormone fluctuation

Growing up I was about as tough as they came.  My Dad would always call me his “little soldier”, and woe unto anyone dumb enough to attack (verbally or physically) either me or my family.  I had an acerbic and somewhat lethal tongue (once unleashed), a nasty temper, and high pain tolerance. To say it… Continue reading From Hard Ass to Candy Ass; The joys of hormone fluctuation

Daily Prompt: Delayed Contact

Assignment:  How would you get along with your sibling(s), parent(s), or any other person you’ve known for a long time — if you only met them for the first time today? Woooweee! Is that ever a loaded question or what?!?!  Rather than delve into the emotional cauldron that is my parentage or “strained relationship” with my… Continue reading Daily Prompt: Delayed Contact
