Ostrich Act

I don’t like going to the dentist. My dentist is fine, he’s actually adorable, and he has a pug, and I console myself with the idea that he’d rather be home with his pug as opposed to shoving fillings in my teeth as much as I’d rather be home with mine. But still, we find […]

I Hate Coming Up With Titles

Putting a title on a post is like the fucking lamest thing ever. I don’t know why it’s so hard. Even when I write things with a point, it isn’t as though it’s really easy or self evident what the headline should be. If I had to sum up and title, say, the press conference […]

I Love Nature, I Just Hate Outside

Nothing like a big face full of pollen to make you rethink how cool those cherry blossoms are… Allergies have always been my hell to bear, because I am the sort of person who found out that Easter lilies make me violently, hit the floor ill when I walked into the library one spring day […]

But Does It Spark Joy?

By this time, and hell, who the fuck knows who is reading this… Is the human race still a thing, or are you decoding this on some non-carbon based life form planet somewhere unfathomable lightyears away?… Who the fuck knows? By this time, you probably are familiar with Marie Kondo, the Japanese decluttering/organizational skill development […]

Plan For the Fan

It was funny when we were buying the house because… well, nothing was funny because I really didn’t want to move, so I was a fucking ray of sunshine about it really. But it came to pass that I found two streets that seemed to rarely have houses go up for sale (these streets connect) […]

What Did a Water Park Ever Do to Me? (Or… Stay Home, Dammit)

If you know me, you know that I am a tremendous fucking killjoy. No, really, I am. The good part of this is that during this pandemic, I am adjusting pretty easily to the fact that it is the accepted and smiled upon and┬ámorally correct thing to do to just keep your ass home. Home […]

You Know What?

I am watching the shit happening at the bird feeder, and watching woodchucks run all over and realizing those fuckers climb trees, and jump, and swim, and are incredibly agile for looking like creatures an incredibly uncreative, uncoordinated child made out of clay and dryer lint. Plus, they can contract rabies (rarely seems to happen, […]

Time Is Linear, History Is Cyclical

And we are all dumbasses. I’ve seen, more than a few times in the past two years or so, someone say, “If you ever wondered what the people in 1930s-era Berlin were thinking, now you know” or the variation of this: “If you ever wondered what you would have done then, it’s exactly what you […]

Dream Catcher Writemare

I have, among other things, either as a cause or effect or a comorbidity, a stupid ass sleep disorder. I do not sleep right. If I am not taking stimulants and some kind of sleep med at night, every minute of every hour of every day is giant gray wave of not awake, not asleep, […]

Keeping It Moving

Whenever I open my browser it shows me the recent links (so yeah, Chrome, I know) and I feel like if I keep the link to this up at the top, I will see that fucker every time I go on to do something else and feel guilt and keep updating. On the one hand, […]
