January tried to kill me (and it failed)

I started my 2020 off with two bottles of very nice $6 wine. It’s a sweet white, and I love it. Not very high alcohol content, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy two bottles. But very nice. I enjoyed myself. I suppose you could also look at that as the end of my […]

Three Days Remaining

Good afternoon, friends! There are three days left in 2019. That means there are three days left before 2020 starts. And my one MILLION word challenge. I’m doing it. I’m going to do it with a friend. In fact, in a way, I’ve already started. I started a book in November, at the very tail […]

Twinkle

It’s the last month, and the only thing the prompt makes me think of is a screenshot I found on Pinterest of a Tumblr post. It reads: twinkle twinkle, little starwhy is art so fucking hard up above the world so highi can’t draw the other eye twinkle twinkle little fuckdammitwhat thei give up tumblr […]

Thankful

I am thankful for Bliss Kiss’s nail oil. It does a really good job of healing my cuticles (which I have a tendency to bother with until my cuticles are a hot mess) when I remember to use it regularly. I am thankful for my family. Despite my significant lack of self-confidence, I am raising […]

Shiver

The temperatures are finally in the range where I wish I’d planned ahead and worn my jacket in the morning, but still warm enough that I’ll forget that jacket in the afternoon. It’s cool enough that yesterday, meeting a friend to exchange greetings (and dinner), my knees shook as the rain misted us and the […]

Anxiety/Frustration

Frustranxiety? That might work. I’m anxious. And frustrated. I want to craft. I don’t want to be behind a computer. When I have time to craft, I just want to be behind a computer. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK, BRAIN. I don’t like this. I want to craft. I don’t want to be behind a computer. […]

Water, floating

I learned a thing from the Internet (so please don’t take this as gospel) that you’re supposed to drink 1/2 your body weight in oz of water every day. (Have I mentioned this before? Please forgive me if I have.) So I’m giving it a shot. At first it was really hard. I felt like […]

CRAFT, sleep, lack of caffeine, and other things flying through my head at a million miles an hour

How much of that blog title will make it into the site URL, I wonder? I need to craft something. Usually I get this urge in December after writing hard during November, but it’s here now. I want to cross stitch or embroider (I don’t know how to do that, by the way), or maybe […]

Crunch

Spicy Doritos Taco Bell #10 That piece of random something in the hot dog that shouldn’t be there Overcooked pork pot stickers Chocolate pieces in Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia Beetles under your shoe Bumper meeting bumper Autumn leaves on late September mornings Popcorn The spine of a new book Good celery, cucumbers, and apple […]

I have a problem. (Maybe. I can’t tell.)

I am very susceptible to impulse purchases. For example: If an author/blogger/writer I enjoy writes an article on Tor about another author’s book, describing how it was created, a bit about what it’s about, and how that book broke some rules and then created new ones, I am very likely to go and buy that […]
