Just from where I sit Sitting on my patio watching the world go by I sometimes wonder if I would notice a difference in the world if I had just woken up from a month long sleep. If I woke up with no knowledge of the coronavirus. What would I notice if I woke up... Continue Reading →
Was thinking of time-travel today.
There is no such thing as time travel, or at the very least, if it is possible it will not be discovered in my lifetime. I know this because if that were true I would have come back from the future already a dozen times in my lifetime up to this point to stop me from doing some of the dumb things I eventually ended up doing. Still, when I am about to embark on a new stupid thing, I always set my timer for 5 minutes and wait, giving my future self a little extra time to get here and stop me just in case. So far he has not. And if time travel is not discovered in my lifetime, then I can also rest assured that I have not done anything so incredibly world endangering and stupid enough up to this point that would make some complete stranger…

Her dreams are made up of zombies, tsunamis, viruses, supernovas, or nuclear wars. So, this coronavirus thing is taking its toll. And like it is in most cases, it's... Continue Reading →
From the Blonde Moments file (Conversations with my daughter) Leaving the grocery store: Lauren- Why did we have to pay for this stuff? Me- What? Why wouldn't we? Lauren- Uh...World War Z, Contagion, I Am Legend, Zombieland. No one pays for their stuff during a pandemic. Everyone knows this. We were cheated. Me- Yeah, I... Continue Reading →
Feeling it today.
This is the 4th coffee shop I have sat in in the last hour. I can’t seem to find my focus today. That’s a rare thing for me. Granted I have less important things to do nowadays, so focusing is not a life and death issue anymore, but still, it’s a rare (and unwelcome) thing. I don’t like it.
I walked out of the first coffee shop for no reason. No reason at all. Walked in then out and got back on the road. Nothing felt wrong about it. Just walked out. The second shop I went to I had not been to in a long time. It was kind of busy. A couple of groups of girls talking at the edges. Some guys standing by the door talking to each other, stalling to get out of there. I walked up to the counter to order but then stopped. Suddenly…
