Life is an onion and one peels it crying ~French Proverb

This year I’m doing something different. I’m not sure if it is because I “failed’ at #Octpowrimo. By failed I mean I had a choice between being able to do things with my family and keep track of my commitments (which I still didn’t manage all of them) deal with …

X chromosome

the sex chromosome that is present in both sexes: singly in males and doubly in females; "human females normally have two X chromosomes" I think the biological definition of gender is obsolete. I think gender is more fluid than that. I think, I believe in my heart, that if there …

F is for fardel

; C’mon it’s Friday. You’ve felt it right? Is it the dishes? Is it the trash? Perhaps the laundry?Now you have a word for it, FARDAL. anything cumbersome or irksome. There’s no link for the pronunciation because it sounds a lot like fart with a d instead of T– which …

C is for Charientism

Ok, the collective term for cats is clowder. I just had to say that. Clowder of cats. not a herd but a clowder. Guess that’s like a mope of goths or a stomp of rivets.   That said Today’s word is Charientism <–click on it to hear the pronunciation. I …

B is for Bibliophagist

Bibliophagist: One who devours books, literally or figuratively. http://www.forvo.com/word/bibliophagist/ <–How to pronounce. I read. A lot and very fast. I started reading at about 4 and I never stopped. I read so fast I have to make myself slow down sometimes to savor a very good read. Like  The Wool …

What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything? Vincent van Gogh

  A to Z Blogging Challenge Well here we go again. I am going to give another blogging challenge a try. Why? I failed the last one quite miserably. And the reverb/resound whatever the heck that was didn’t work very well either. I have always made it through Nablopomo though. …

I was thinking of how you broke my heart

We took a walk.     The things you told me were like the things I told you.   But then that gift and truth for me were not the same not for you. Did you lie because of love or expediency?   What was your small lie lived forever …

For that guy. Yeah

So I had an episode the other day or month. I’ve been meaning to blog again for awhile but the new jorb and the tension with proving myself all over again got in the way. Before that it was just coming down from the job I had before. I was …

The Year of the End of the World with Thanks

I’ve been gone awhile. The year ended roughly for me but more roughly for my family. My husband’s father died and his current wife neglected to tell him There is SO MUCH I’d like to say about that, that I”d like to DO about that. But we’ll just leave the …

Where is my mind ~ Way out in the water See it swimmin ~Pixies

Well, where is my mind. My mind is on leaving my current job and going to my next one. I can’t say that I’ve got my head in the #reverb11 #resound11 etc game. I wish I did. I wanted too. There are just so many places to visit to find …

it is yet another new beginning

I’m just going to start writing. I’m several days behind. I couldn’t write because what I wanted to write about I’d been asked not to write about. This intersection of work and the internet is a very interesting place. I mean I wasn’t specifically asked not to write in my …

“The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.” Bertrand Russell

Take a minute and think about what your biggest time wasters. What are they? What would happen if you took some of the time you were spending on these things and focused on pursuiting your dreams and goals? Are there other areas in your day where you could work on …

weapon of choice

Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times~ Aeschylus

it isn’t that there haven’t been a lot of great prompts, there have been. It isn’t that I haven’t wanted to write on some of them, I have. It’s just that I’m right in the middle of something I can’t actually talk or write anything about until Monday. Because. Oh …

Nope, you can’t make me, no way, no how.

  I want a Reverb 11, Resound 11, Weverb11 etc etc  prompt aggregator.  I’d like to choose a prompt without having to locate several many websites. Luckily though Geekin Hard has collected many in one link page so that now there’s just no need to have a complete libra collapse. …

To Nablopomo or not to Nablopomo

I thought that while I was thinking about whether or not to join nablopmo this year—I’ve been doing it since the beginning—at least every November—I should get something up here just in case. On the pro side, I’ve done it every year and it does give a feeling of accomplishment. …

why I love the internet

Sometimes you meet people online and you find out things about them from their blogs, or twitter or email lists. And you like them. Sometimes you might never meet those folks in the flesh—but you can know them for years. I have quite a few folks like that back from …
