Postal Boogers

Postal Boogers

  Enjoy this old, old My Odd Sock from 2013.  It is so yucky it deserves a 2nd look!  (New stuff coming soon!)     We’re in a sticky situation here. One from which we need to wash our hands of the problem. (And use anti-bacterial lotion if available.)       You see, we …

World’s Smallest

World’s Smallest

  “World’s Smallest” is a phrase thrown around with great regularity. You will often see pictures of the world’s smallest Pekinese or world’s smallest bicycle. Lots of stuff hawked on TV claims to be the world’s smallest. But it all means nothing to me.  I’m numb to it, as daily, I live in my own …

Antistipation

Antistipation

  You hear it everywhere… “These are difficult days.” “We are in challenging times.” Hey, you are preaching to the choir, sister!

Sneaky Snacks

    Hmm, maybe I’ll have a snack. Not really hungry just something to tied me over. A nosh. Just pecking on a bit. You know the feeling.   Time to amble over to the pantry and take a looksy to see what I can find.  Always something in the pantry, right?   Behold on …

One Tucked Nerd

One Tucked Nerd

  It shouldn’t feel awkward.  But it does. Like the time I forgot pants at Applebee’s.  Hey, the sign said “No shirt, no shoes.”  They made NO mention of pants whatsoever! Sorry I brought that up.  It’s the subject of a whole ‘nuther blog post. I’m talking about shirts here.  To tuck or leave untucked, …

Jerks of Art

Jerks of Art

  It was last month, roughly the middle of March, as I found myself quietly admiring the piece on the wall. I gasped, like stepping on a Lego, when I noticed the faintly written date at the far bottom.     “3-15-70”     Fifty years ago!  Half a century had passed! Where had time …

Mother & Father

Mother & Father

  I’ve never been keen on formalities, especially when it came to addressing my parents as “mother” and “father.” Referring to “my mother” or “my father” in conversation seemed so upper crust.  Like something one would say at the country club wearing a houndstooth jacket, sipping a martini. My experience growing up was quite different.  …

Things To Do While I Hunker Down

Things To Do While I Hunker Down

  During this difficult time, we are being urged to self-isolate & distance ourselves from others. Many of you may feel as though you are going stir crazy. But not me. Why not me, you ask?     Because I have come up with a list of things to do to keep busy while I …

The Fine Print

The Fine Print

  You ever read the fine print? Ever read the legalese mumbo-jumbo terms of agreement or do you just click ‘accept’ like I do? Of course you don’t read the fine print.  Heck, you can barely see it, right? Well don’t despair, you are not alone.  I am right there with you.   Recently I …

Brain Drain #26

Brain Drain #26

    Welcome to “Brain Drain,” the long-running post consisting of subject matter of no real importance.  Just somewhere to vent my general irritability. Let’s dig in, shall we?…     Fancy Patios     Spring is approaching fast.  And with the new season are advertisements for fancy patio furniture. These displays are beholding, I’ll …
