Obviously, I must feel . . .

December 31st, 2013 · 2 Comments

Obviously, I must feel as if I have something to say before this year ends, but it seems I have no idea what it is and come here expecting some sort of Ouija board writing. And it is not working. Could it be a paranormal thing that I, with my amazing AmeliaJake psychic power, am […]

Gadzooks, socks and boots

December 31st, 2013 · No Comments

Ah, right off the bat I think I’m going to have to get some compressed air and blow out the “n” key (did that) because it did not want to go down. So, first crisis of the morning taken care of. Well, it wasn’t the first crisis; the first one was not being able to […]

Christmas next – 2014

December 30th, 2013 · No Comments

I have written in past columns and blog posts about how Christmas has become like a door with a long path leading to it, full of bright colors and cheerful tunes and good cheer – and then you open the door and that is it, like lemmings over a cliff. And actually that part about […]

Lights at Christmas

December 29th, 2013 · No Comments

They tell me that when I was very little I would sit for long periods of time just watching the bubble lights do there thing. Hey, I was a little girl – little girls concentrate better than little boys. I watched them a little this year, but because the tree was located where it could […]

This seems odd

December 29th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Normally, I get lots and lots of notifications of special offers in my email. I let them come and scan through the senders because I have learned sometimes a retailer will offer stubborn resisters of email offers a really, really good deal . . . before the offer goes more public a day later or […]

December 28th, 2013 · No Comments

It is almost 11:30 am and I just realized I am walking around with this nice knit green thing on my upper body and an okay slip on the lower half. I am not wearing my skirt yet. I’ll tell you why I called what one would expect to be designated as a blouse or […]

Face scrunching

December 27th, 2013 · 1 Comment

No, I am not going to talk about the AmeliaJake facial exercises; I have been scrunching my face today because I have been in a very bad mood regarding total strangers.

Both ways

December 26th, 2013 · No Comments

Right up until I actually typed that title up there, I didn’t know what I was going to say. Would I joke around about my internet friend getting a Zoop computer for Christmas and my having to look it up and then getting the idea to make-up crazy names for types of yet to be […]

Here in Our Whoville

December 25th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Well, Christmas came for AmeliaJake Who; once again it came round just as it always has. But this year, this little AmeliaJake Who had the distinct feeling of stepping outside of the parade and watching part of it pass by. I am beginning to believe that there comes a time when memories catch up with […]
