I Am A Trovert

7 Nov

I recently sat next to someone in a group that was NOT Introverts Anonymous who introduced herself like this: “Hi, I am Sally and I’m an introvert.” Her name isn’t Sally, I made that up.  Also, that turned out not to be the most interesting thing about her. There has been a lot of buzz on [...]

We’re Like Family

16 Jul

I mustache you a question… [Photo: barnorama.com] One of the things I always told clients I like about the large company I (sort of technically don’t) work for is that our meetings always feel like a big family reunion.  In a big room, you might not know everyone, but you know someone who brought them [...]

A Week in the Life

25 Jun

I saw on the news today (the Today show is totally news, particularly when compared to my other information sources, TMZ and Facebook) that a new poll says 70% of people surveyed hate their job.  Good grief, really??  I have a theory that these people haven’t really thought about whether they hate their job, but [...]

I Have A Disability

3 Apr

facepalm

Everything is a disability these days, amirite? I get it, life is hard.  I have volunteered with the Special Olympics, and those are some amazing folks.  But all the disabilities?  It’s like saying everyone is unique.  Or everyone is a winner.  At a certain point, we are ALL disabled and it all sort of loses its [...]

Well, Do Ya, Punk?

I ran the Get Lucky 7k this weekend.  The whole thing.  And now I have a “finisher’s medal,” which I sort of object to in principle – I did not win, I am not a winner – and a sweatshirt that says “7K & Half Marathon.”  I’m comfortable letting people assume I ran either one. [...]

Very Recent History: Farming Is No Vacation

22 Jan

“Vacation” means different things to different people at different times in their lives.  To me, right now, it apparently means leaving my own couch and living room and traveling 1200 miles to sit on my mom’s couch in her living room.  (My dad has his own living room for a few months, and no, he’s [...]

New Year’s Revolutions

31 Dec

biebs

I feel like they are more like “revolutions” because of their cyclical nature.  How many times can I resolve to lose 5 pounds or stop being late all the time or stop toying with the pedestrians before it’s not really a “resolution” anymore?  Whatever, it’s tradition.  Here we go with the mostly old, occasionally new, [...]

Want Not

8 Nov

slippersomg

Now that the election is over, I can go back to loving November. Things I love about this month: Gratitude posts on Facebook and Twitter The Food Red Cups at Starbucks.  Last year’s were better, but nevermind. Don’t you just FEEL cozier? Movember It’s creepy for a good cause. NaNoWriMo, even though it’s not my [...]

Very Recent History

30 Oct

not

I used to get all my best ideas in the shower.  Since I retired, though, I don’t seem to have any ideas, nevermind good ones.  Until today. Most of the blogs I follow do some kind of weekly summary.  I think I’ll start doing this, too (shower genius), since my life now seems to happen [...]

Achievements and Discoveries

17 Oct

of course!

I haven’t failed yet.  I finished the first week of training in – get this – a week. I even got two compliments on these hilarious shoes today!  One from a cool girl on a bike who was wearing the right clothes (butnottryingtoohard) and one from a little old lady whose day was CLEARLY made [...]
