Fighting the bad thoughts

Fighting the bad thoughts

Posted By on Oct 18, 2016

I’m sitting in a hospital waiting room. Not much sleep last night and then I got here at 6 AM to meet with my mom’s docs. She’s been in here a week after open heart surgery. She’s getting a pacemaker today and hopefully should be able to go home tomorrow. I’m having bad thoughts today. Not about my mom’s health, because she seems to be doing well. Rather, I’m having bad thoughts about the...

A report from the “genius belt”

Posted By on Sep 25, 2016

Yesterday was Museum Day Live! That exclamation point is apparently part of the official name of the thing. Although this next one is not! That one was my own. Exclamation points are fun sometimes! (Also mine. And here’s one more!) Why the word “live” was added to the name of this day is beyond me. Does it denote that you have to be alive to visit? Or maybe that you can visit the museums live and in-person, which I...

Gettin’ old faster than I expected

Posted By on Jul 15, 2016

When I was 38, I worked in an office with a girl who was in her early 20s. Christina would hang out with me and my officemate, Michelle, who was just slightly older than I was. We three girls would be happily chatting away when, invariably, Christina would make some reference indicating that Michelle and I were about a thousand years old. She never did this with malice. Rather, she was pretty matter of fact about it. Like, hey, the...

Later that day, we shuttled the kids off to other locations so we could hurriedly shower and...

Don’t give people magical powers

Posted By on Jun 28, 2016

Just a quick bloggity today … There’s this pretty famous blogger I read on a semi-regular basis. Best I can tell, he’s gained and lost a bunch of impressive jobs …. he’s gained a lost a couple of fortunes … people pay him gobs of money for his consultation on various things. This guy is magnetic. Tons of great big ideas. But his personal life seems to fall spectacularly apart every few years …...

Cool stuff I found out about Prince

Posted By on Apr 24, 2016

You guys. Prince. Shit. What can I say that a million people haven’t already said? Well, I guess I could say this (which is what I posted on Facebook the other day): I mean zero disrespect when I say this, but I hope we find out that Prince died with a peacock up his butt or something. I mean, it’s Prince. [Also, to those closest to me in this lifetime: When I die, please shove a peacock up my butt. I’d like to make...
