Cheese knees

I remember when I was a kid, there was this annoying game some of the boys in class would play where they would sneak up on other people and kick or hit the backs of their knees - not hard, but just hard enough to make their legs buckle. It was a strange and disturbing... Continue Reading →


Dumb excuse o’the day…

This morning I was late for work because I misplaced my phone. Again. Typically, I can find it by retracing my steps, but it wasn't in any of the usual (yes, it happens often enough that I can use the word 'usual' here) locations. I couldn't have my partner call it and hunt it down... Continue Reading →

Non-change of plans

We've been alternating between soaking rains and high winds the past few days or so, and it's brought down a lot of branches and more than a few actual trees. I was sitting on the couch a few minutes ago, alone in the house because my partner went out to a social event, and all... Continue Reading →

Collateral damage

This has been a really rough week. To really explain would take more words than I have right now, and I'm not trying to be deliberately vague, I just recognize my own limitations and if I try to make this post about all of it, then it is destined to join several others in unfinished...

The brain fog has been especially bad over the past few years and... Continue Reading →

I actually took the photo on this post at the beginning of the month, intending to put it up at Imbolc, but the post I wanted to build around it just never made it out of my head. I've still been struggling with lack of energy. What I do have gets used up on work,... Continue Reading →

Punday morning

I have been known to take great delight in what I consider a good pun. The 'good' part is open to debate, I suppose, depending on whether the other person likes puns or not. My partner mostly just ignores them, so as not to encourage me, but occasionally (almost always unintentionally) sets up a good... Continue Reading →

Outlet mal*

*That's not a typo. So I made it through another week, mostly by going to bed before nine, and as we were having breakfast this morning, my partner asked what my plans were for the day. I shrugged noncommittally. "You mentioned earlier in the week that you wanted to buy some sweatpants and shoes..." she... Continue Reading →
