I’ve been the organizer for a local book club for about three years now. It started out as the local branch of a national book club run by Barnes & Noble. During the part of covid where no one was meeting, I ended up running into the store manager who basically handed me the email… Continue reading On Book Club Planning
I used to blog all the time. I love writing. To the mortal embarrassment of some family, I enjoy processing my thoughts and putting them out there. Sometimes I say profound things that I’m proud of. Sometimes I say really dumb stuff, and I look back and cringe. I haven’t been very consistent at blogging… Continue reading On Not Knowing Where the Last Year and Change Went
This is no big deal. But I kinda liked it, so I wanted to share it.
I noticed that my comfortable jeans had gotten a bit baggy. I tried washing them, but they were still baggy. So I wasn’t too surprised when the doctor mentioned that I’d lost weight between appointments. Turns out, it was about 10 lbs. I’m amused, because a few (*cough* six *cough*) years ago I did weight… Continue reading On Baggy Pants
I don’t remember the first time it happened. I have a vague memory of it being when Aeris and Gwen got into a spat. Suddenly it went from a two cat standoff to a four cat pileup. Fur flying, cats growling, a rolling ball of chaos. The triggers have been consistent though – one of… Continue reading On Misplaced Aggression
I’ll be honest, I’m feeling pretty overwhelmed by everything that happened last week, and the whole pandemic in general. I don’t necessarily do well with winter in general – not the stereotypical cold, snowy, overcast winter. That’s part of the reason I generally like Virginia winters – all of that weather is kept to a… Continue reading On Being Weary
I kept thinking, geez, I really have to update, otherwise my readers (ha ha ha) are going to think Gwen died.…and then today, she did. To be fair, she made it through surgery. She did really well, actually. There was one day where she was very, very uncomfortable, and then she improved quickly. I have… Continue reading Gwendolyn Stacy, Kitty of Valor
For some reason, Gwen has taken up residence in the bathroom. I apologize for the hair. We change out the bath mats and wash them regularly, but she’s a very sheddy kitty. It’s no secret that Gwen has about thirty things wrong with her. She’s put up with a lot for such a tiny girl.… Continue reading On the Sickly Sassico
This is one of the songs that takes me back to my teens – specifically my early teens. I remember sitting on my back porch playing it on repeat while pining over my first real crush.
So, my sweet, sweet boy took the above screenshot from Mass Effect 2 this evening. (It’s the remastered edition, and I HIGHLY recommend it.) Maybe he has a crush on Jack? Who knows, tough tatted up biotics might be his thing. But here’s the rub: *I* don’t know how to take screenshots in game. I… Continue reading Vizzi Knows More About Technology…
