I have a problem. I admit it. It’s diet soda. I drink way too much of it. And it’s getting worse. I won’t burden you with the details of how many cans I pound in a day. It would scare you. I am aware of the correlations between long term artificial sweetener consumption and…some pretty … Continue reading My Addictions
Christmas shopping has been fun this year, since I have a fairly reasonable income again and there are some interesting items on the market that harken back to an earlier era, reminding me of (somewhat?) simpler times. Caboodles. Ladies, remember these? They’re selling them again. For those who don’t know, Caboodles is a kit designed … Continue reading Cool Retro Holiday Gifts for Your Kids
I was listening to Lithium Workout on the Sirius XM app on the way home from work and Closer came on. Closer is one of my favorite songs from the 1990s. I have to blast it when I hear it. Anyway, it reminded me of a funny remix I heard several years ago: Closer to … Continue reading Probably Only Generation X Will Get This (We’re the Best Ones)
I am crushing it this week. I haven’t done this well in months. I actually still have weeklies left over. Even after Thanksgiving! NSV this evening: I had had a coat held for me for next weekend, a size large. Well, I found the same one on the sales floor in a medium. Out of … Continue reading WW Week in Review
I’m working, so probably won’t be as productive on the keypad today. Everyone says Black Friday starts out dead in here, then suddenly it picks way up. I’ve already had to ring at 9:00, if that’s any indication. They call me to the register when the line gets long. I guess it calms down significantly … Continue reading Black Friday
Apparently, I have more A-type in me than I thought. I scored 8 out of 10. I don’t know how valid or research-backed the test I took actually is, but here’s the link, anyway. It’s a quickie for my fellow Type-A’s: https://openpsychometrics.org/tests/AB.php The description at the end of the test actually does sound like me: … Continue reading A or B?
Family. Friends. Followers. Full-time employment (and those who helped make it possible for me to stay with the company). Physical health. Full disclosure: I had stomach problems (constipation 😳) at the end of the summer that lasted two months, saw a GI specialist and had a colonoscopy at the end of October, which came out … Continue reading I Am Thankful For
Analytics has turned out to be a mixed blessing. While it’s given me some information I was looking for, it’s also now telling me some things I didn’t necessarily want to know. Like, why is a certain, old acquaintance visiting my blog? In all the years we had the misfortune of sharing a building, we … Continue reading Go Away, or I Shall Taunt You a Second Time!
It’s nice to get some recognition at work. One place I worked (and you can clearly see I’m not naming any names, here) favored the mouthpiece of the group, the individual enamored with the sound of her own voice. All up in everyone else’s business, she was the school bully (or the hall monitor). You … Continue reading I See You
I got another compliment on the pet department today from someone else. It’s probably silly, but I like being told I’m good at things. Even the small things matter to me. The box of food I was pushing had a broken, leaky jar of fig jam in it, and I got some on me. It … Continue reading Fig-Jammed
