The thigh gap . . . sigh

March 31st, 2013 · 1 Comment

Over forty years ago, that’s FOUR DECADES PLUS, FOLKS . . . Clearing throat. Okay, over forty years ago at a dorm at Indiana University, one of the girls in the next room over came and pulled me over to her room. She and her roommate had been investigating mirror reflections and discovered that when […]

Waiting for it

March 29th, 2013 · No Comments

I am waiting for the light above my head to go out . . . Again. I have followed the instructions for setting this timer over and overa again and the damn light is staying on. I’m glad I am experimenting with this set-up because constantly trundling off somewhere to see if it is working […]

Hello there

UPDATE: Shhhh! Don’t let my nose know, but I have regained control of the keyboard, thanks to kleenex freeing up my hands. You don’t want to know. Oh, you probably already do; well, don’t visualize it. Hi, this is AmeliaJake’s nose writing here today’ I have pretty much overwhelmed her puny cold antibodies and am […]

My mother’s cat Tiffany

March 27th, 2013 · 2 Comments

We inherited my mother’s cat; Summer and Alison care for her. I tolerate her and she hasn’t killed me . . . yet. I’d say this New Yorker cartoon sums up her personality.

I should buy a thermometer

March 27th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Yes, I need to stop looking at www.weather.com and buy a thermometer and have someone from Illinois call me about what the weather is doing where they are. Today, this very morning, I looked at the weather website to see if there had been any sighting of signs of spring. (That season after winter.) But […]

Abductors . . . Come back

March 25th, 2013 · 1 Comment

If you want to come into the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse, you have to stomp the snow off your feet – or take a mop and clean up the melting debris. As I sit in the old north porch alcove of this place, I am surrounded on three sides with bending boughs, weighted down […]

Post abduction

March 24th, 2013 · No Comments

I don’t actually feel probed and I can’t tell if any samples have been taken, but then, again, who knows what happened in the last two or three days. I also have no sense of my head being taken off so I don’t think I’ve been “Miked”. So,in the absence of any evidence to the […]

Just too much

March 21st, 2013 · 2 Comments

This morning has been a rough one – oh, nothing like leg-breaking or a deadly diagnosis or bankruptcy. Just a little minor spirit breaking. So I sat down to go about a few routine things, like the news and weather and Pottermom’s floors and I saw this: I don’t know; I really don’t . . […]

Are they trying to break it to us slowly?

March 20th, 2013 · No Comments

The weather website is talking about ways the world as we know it could end . . . and a Senate committee is talking about a plan to intercept asteroids. Now I know the meteor hitting in Russia and the 17,000 miss of the asteroid on the same day is noteworthy and I, myself wonder […]

I’m still here

March 20th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Just thought I’d mention it since weather.com kept talking about the end of the world. However, I did doubt myself for a moment when I went to that site and got the message the server couldn’t connect. After a couple of tries, it came up – still asking if the end was near – but, […]
