How quickly plans change

I was supposed to travel north to visit with a friend this wekeend, and due to circumstances out of my control, had to cancel the plans yesterday. It seems like it was actually the best thing to do because last night, PR’s mom, we think, had a stroke. He zoomed down there at 9 last […]

Sorry, but that’s not what this blog is about.

Had someone who wrote in wanting me to post all the gory details that I’ve been not posting. I’d written a post “letting it all out”, as it were, and then realized that that wasn’t what I was about. It’s not what the blog is about. I post many things to the blog: jokes, recipes, […]

(on the topic of relationships) “I’m not looking for my other half. I’m perfectly complete the way it is.”

If you only knew…

….how much you hurt me, you woudln’t be able to sleep at night. You, who claim that I feel nothing, that I am nothing, are in fact, looking in a mirror. There’s a difference between crying on command and true pain in the soul. Never think that people can’t tell the difference.

Monday, sunny side up.

Day by day, life gets back to normal, even if things will never be the same. Part of my life has been changed and I’m looking for a way not to bury the memory, but to make it less prevalent in my life. Self-preservation is the order of the day. Damn the torpedoes. Full speed […]

and why I never plan on shopping there again. Tink and I decided, since it had been a rough day, to go to a place I rarely set foot in: CompUSA. Now, I call them GougeUSA because, years ago, I purchased 100 CDs from them and they were supposed to come with a $75 rebate. […]

Lyrics of the Morning

“When I’m Gone” by Rockell When I’m gone, would you take good care of everything Will you keep wearing your wedding ring when I’m gone And when I’m gone, will you take down all the photographs Where we spent our warm and tender laughs When I’m gone Chorus: Will you miss me in the night […]

Some Questions

I don’t feel like giving answers, nor details. But I do have some questions, after this week has passed where I didn’t, at times, think I’d get through. 1. Have you ever been in a situation where you KNEW that in order to protect yoruself and your very being that you had to get away? […]

LightScribe rocks.

A while ago I purchased an external drive with LightScribe capabilities. That’s where you take a LightScribe compatible CD or DVD, record it, flip it over, and using the special label side, burn on the label. One downside: It takes 4 minutes to burn a 700 mb CD. To burn a full surface label (only […]

Being Proud

No, I’m not talking about one of the seven deadly sins. I’m proud For someone else. Who? I’m proud for P. Why? Because this weekend is very special to him, and very important to him. P. has talked to God, listened to God talking to him, and decided that on the holiest of all weekends, […]

From the 4/11/06 edition of The Daily Press, the newspaper for the Peninsula, Hampton Roads, Virginia: I assumed the American people would be outraged when the Republican Party stole a national election in the year 2000. I assumed the American people would be outraged when the Bush administration started a war that inflicts thousands of […]

Attorney Geoffrey Fieger said the family of Sherrill Lynn Turner, […]

Maybe I’m missing something

…but I don’t think I am. WTF, Monkeyboy? President Shrub has been going on and on ad nauseum about how the government needs to have secrets to protect the Security of the American people. 9/11. The War on Terror. Wiretapping. Anal Probes. But then, from everything that has come out in the news, he “authorized” […]

No regrets

Yes, I’ve been absent for some time from Ye Olde Blog. I make no apologies, excuses, or explanations. Suffice to say that life has been doling out large helpings of things that are best not experienced, and to keep from turning the blog into a major bitchfest, I stepped away. It’s what helped maintain what […]

Will I live to be 80?

A very nice lady recently picked a new primary care physician. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said that she was doing “fairly well” for her age. A little concerned about that comment, she couldn’t resist asking him, “Do you think I’ll live to be 80?” He asked, “Do you smoke tobacco or […]
