670th Friday Blog Roundup

Last week, we went to the movies and the woman behind the counter seemed familiar.  I asked her if she had ever worked at a shop in town, and she immediately said, “Was I rude to you?” I was taken aback, and I said, “No, absolutely not.” But she kept repeating, “I probably was rude.  […]

Einstein’s Theory of Happiness

Hopefully you are having a wonderful day.  I know the online world is always American-centric, even more so on Thanksgiving, so I’ll leave it at that: A wonderful day, however you’re spending it. While you eat your turkey/tofurky (or don’t eat your turkey/tofurky), I leave you with this positive thought: Einstein’s Theory of Happiness. Yes, […]

#MicroblogMondays 169: Games

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. You know how I said on Friday that I’m not playing as many games anymore?  I’m not.  But I still manage to squeeze in a round or two of Desert Golf while I’m thinking during […]

669th Friday Blog Roundup

This week I went into my settings to discover what Facebook knows about me.  90% of it is wrong.  I really felt like I was being trolled by Facebook; like it was showing me wrong information to tease me.  But it did figure out that I like video games.  I do.  I like video games […]

Who Is Sitting Next To You

I read the most moving piece this week.  The authors asked the people on the R train for their personal story and collected them into one Humans-of-New-York-like piece “that attempts to capture the city’s voice through first-person stories, spoken and written, about how our disparate lives intertwine.” Like there’s the kid on his way to […]

I Want This

I want this. I rarely read an article or see an ad and think, “I want this.”  Sometimes I look at something and say, “Oh, that’s nice.”  But I never bookmark it or write it down.  I don’t buy many things — I don’t like shopping and I really don’t like clutter — so the […]

#MicroblogMondays 168: CPR Party

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. I read about this great idea recently.  You know how people host LuLaRoe and Stella & Dot parties?  Well, this person helps you host a CPR party. You get the friends together and put out […]

Pet Peeves

One of my biggest pet peeves is when other people foist their ideas about money or time well spent on another person.  I have a pretty good sense of myself; of what I like and don’t like.  I like indoor activities, flat land, bleak beaches.  I dislike outdoor activities, mountains, and heavily populated events or […]

668th Friday Blog Roundup

This week I taught the youth of America what it is like to be a writer for Career Day.  I am always shocked when anyone asks me to talk about anything. The kids begged me not to add into my presentation how much time I spend bouncing ideas off of Linus the Guinea Pig.  I […]

All the Questions I Was Supposed to Ask Before Marriage

I am often shown ads for the New York Times even though we already have a subscription to the New York Times.  (I’m pretty sure that is not how targeted ads are supposed to work.)  Anyway, one of the recent ads linked to an article from 2016.  Odd choice except that I clicked on it.  […]

My Very Own Sherlockian Mystery (or just a story of forgetfulness)

I believe there has been a tear in the time-space continuum, creating an alternative timeline for my life.  I have proof. Back on Halloween, I opened an old book and a piece of paper came out.  It had a name scrawled on it, sort of like I was writing myself a reminder to call the […]

#MicroblogMondays 167: Silence

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. The BBC had an article about a little while back about the cultural interpretations of silence.  English speakers tend to panic when there is silence, whereas speakers of other languages see it “as a valuable […]

Mental Sampler 14

I went to see a performance of Our Town.  Even though I’ve seen the play many times, I still started sniffling when George and Emily went out for the ice cream sodas.  And I was full-out wailing by the time we got to the cemetery. I know some people think Our Town is maudlin and […]

667th Friday Blog Roundup

(1) I need a vegan brownie recipe.  Actually, it doesn’t have to be vegan, per se, but it cannot contain eggs.  My friend and I are in a bake-off, and her daughter is the judge.  This give her an unfair home field advantage, so I am using my blog to gather recipes.  The prize is […]

The Weight of the Moment

I’ve been having a lot of trouble starting this post.  How can I summarize years of work and a whirlwind weekend of b’nai mitzvah events into a few short paragraphs?  I kept jotting down things I wanted to remember on post-it notes that I stuck inside my notebook.  The look on my friend’s face when […]

Why It’s Hard to Make Friends

While we were out Saturday night, we encountered a zombie walk.  All the kids rushed to the window of the party space to observe the adults dressed in costume.  (There was also a dinosaur.  I’m not sure how dinosaurs fit in with the whole zombie theme.)  It was a moment that reminded me of college […]

#MicroblogMondays 166: Sucking at Halloween

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. Another year, another lack of Halloween costume.  Actually, I take that back; I dressed up as the TARDIS a few years ago, but I made the costume so I could wear my jeans and boots […]

Binging or Savouring

Wrote this ahead of time because I knew I would be busy today.  Because I’m busy, I’m not watching the new season of Stranger Things.  I also didn’t get a chance to watch last night’s episode of Dirk Gently (which I’m sort of relieved is released one episode at a time like a normal television […]

666th Friday Blog Roundup

Facebook has been killing me softly with its memories feature. Every morning, I open Facebook, and every morning Facebook tells me that it bets I would like to see a memory from last year. No, Facebook, I would not. We’re currently living the outcome of the election and our country is a mess. I would […]

Time Famine

My friend has been trying to get me to use a grocery shopping service where you order what you need online and they deliver it to your door.  It sounds lovely in the sense that I could “shop” at 6 am before the store technically opens and have the errand off my plate for the […]
