A Thousand Beautiful Things

I spend enough time pissing and moaning on this blog that you’d think my life, instead of sunshine and roses, solely consists of thorns and thistles, gloomy skies, and dark of night. While I will not disagree that there has been more than my fair share of crap, I simply cannot bring myself to say […]

When following a “business model” doesn’t make sense

As humans, we naturally resist change. I do, I know you do as well. So when the local newspaper changes, emotions run hot. Only is it uncalled for? Not really. Newspapers are like websites. They are in the eyeball market. If you don’t read, revenue drops. The problem is “cost savings”. I have seen a […]

Today has not been a good one for me. I’ve been in a funk for most of the day for one reason or the other. I was chatting with a friend and we got on the topic of relationships (Oh Joy!) and how in today’s society, everything is seen as disposable. Their belief was that […]

After Hours with Silver Blue™

Evening everyone. Gather close around and let’s have a small chat, shall we? Except you. (Points.) You’re uninvited. Sorry. Ever feel that way? That you’ve been excluded for no particular reason except maybe you were not up to the “desirability” of the host? You know, you could be considered too pale, too tan, too thin, […]

After Hours with Silver Blue™

Save 30%! How could I resist? Of course, I get coupons in my mail from a variety of places. Borders Books, however, normally sends me coupons for things I don’t use. Like children’s books. Though I will admit that I came close to buying THIS BOOK simply because I know Roxette Bunny™ would have had […]

You know, I rarely discuss work, but there’s something that’s been weighing heavy on me today. Several of my clients had wanted to see “The Book” and were quite impressed — it doesn’t matter if it’s because of the quality of the photos or the quality of the publication. The fact is, they were happy […]

In honour of …

After Hours with Silver Blue™

The week from Hell is finally at an end. It has been a long, long time since I have been this glad to know that I have two days off where I have no responsibility for employment. Without going into details, I’ll simply state that it involved people forgetting to put their WORK password in […]

After Hours with Silver Blue™

Watched the premiere of Survivor with Picture Lady and Household Name. I also got to meet the new addition to their family: a puppy, a fox terror terrier, that they’ve named “Polo”. He’s 7 weeks old. Cute beyond belief. Household Name made her world-famous Shrimp Salad, with red pepper and fresh cuke. Delightful on the […]

I may be ghostwriting a semifictional book (and, by nature, semifactual as well). Haven’t decided a title for it yet, but several suggestions include: W****s on Parade. Why my shirt is inside out. McDonalds on a Sunday Morning. What NEVER happens in the Sauna when I’m around. Sure, I can slut around, but if my […]

One thing that does concern me, though…

Why is it that a certain unnamed person in my life seem to feel that if I become friends with their friends, that their friends are going to quit liking them? It’s never been my intention, but as someone told me in confidence (hence the reason they’re not identified here), “well, I know I can […]

Oh. My. GAWD.

RadioMan left a comment that sent me into hysterics: Being the published author that you are- we should have a SALON.. aka reason to drink with literary readings. I can host- beatnik is the mode of dress ( I suggest turtlenecks will be very vogue). Everyone arrives at big brick casa with literary works, culminating […]

A Note of Thanks.

This is the note that took me to tears. I felt the need to share, and today is as good of as day as ever to lift my spirits: Dear Silver Blue: This note is long overdue by I finally sat down to write it. First of all, I wanted to thank you for the […]

With my morning cawfee…™

You’ve got to wonder what precisely happens when a person suffers a debilitating stroke. Take Miss Evelyn, for example, who suffered one last April, and short circuits out on most things if they’re newer than 30 years ago. In one brief conversation, she’ll ask if her husband (who died in April 2005) will be joining […]

With my morning cawfee…™

Lest you think I have just been sitting back, doing nothing, here are some things of note: The Book has been corrected, so if you order, you get one with no known typos. Since I’m the only one to have ordered a copy, I’ve got the collectors edition Hehehe. I am beginning to understand how […]

With my morning cawfee…™

Top o’the morning to y’all. (Now if THAT isn’t a collision of lives and accents, nuthin’ is!) Had the first decent amount of rest in about two weeks last night. I think I slept well and rested for about 4 hours. A marked improvement from going to bed, sleeping for 10 hours, and getting up […]

A hermit breaks his silence.

No morning cawfee this morning either, even though there actually was coffee in the house, brewed, and enjoyed by Tink and myself. I’m trying to think of where to begin this post — it’s difficult for me, as it’s probably one of the most personal ones I’ve considered writing without deleting in the history of […]

After Hours With Silver Blue (01-14-07)

Well, the batteries have been replaced in the chimes which are now serenading me as I type to you, my few but faithful readers. Music wise my life has taken another turn, this time rediscovering Sandra Cretu, who had her first hit with (I’ll Never Be) Maria Magdalena 22 years ago. It’s also a rare […]

With My Morning Cawfee…. (01-13-07)

The weekend is upon us! Explain, then, the insomnia that struck me between 3 am and 5 am this morning. Slept like a baby before and after. I’ve determined why I find Rachel Ray so grating. She’s babbling on Food Network about some stupid pasta dish that has a cauliflower sauce and out of the […]

With my morning cawfee…™ (01-12-07)

Friday has arrived, and not a moment too soon. This week has been a strange one; not the least because I’ve been sick for most of it. Yeah, I’ve got sick leave built up, but with Monday being a holiday, I sort of feel a tad bit guilty in thinking about using it. The weather […]

With my morning cawfee…™ (1-11-07)

I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. Went to bed directly after last night’s post (around 7:45pm) and slept until 6:15 this morning; something I never EVER do. I think the sinus infection may have finally started breaking up (as my face doesn’t quite feel like it’s sliding off my skull this morning), […]

Sunday thoughts going ’round my head.

I’m SO sick of Mother Nature not allowing us to have a decent winter. I’m sorry, it’s 66 degrees outside (after being 72 yesterday). Where’s the cold weather that will kill germs, mold, spores, and biting, stinging insects? Echoes are a very important in your life. You need to pay close attention to them. I […]

A 2006 Round-Up

I said goodbye to a number of people this year; I even managed to just say “see you later” to a few that I know I’ll most likely never see again. I’ve hard my hair every natural colour possible this year, from platinum blond to light brown, dark brown, auburn, black, and most recently, blue-black. […]

Thoughts as 2006 comes to an end

Just becuase you think you know someone, chances are, you really don’t. Toasted Almonds (the drink) are tasty, and even better when you don’t have to pay for them. People who try to pull the wool over the eyes of others are themselves blind to how transparent they actually are. You know who you are; […]
