Doodcember, Days 29, 30, and 31 – Magic, Train, and Classic

Here we are, folks. At the end of another year. Soon, 2021 will be in the rearview mirror – or in some places around the world, it’s already gone. I have no idea where this year went.  Time did that fun thing where it would speed up, slow down, warp around itself until you forgot… Continue reading Doodcember, Days 29, 30, and 31 – Magic, Train, and Classic

Around the Corner

I see you, Thirty. Trying to sneak up on me like that. Well, it won’t work! Sure, it’s suddenly September and my birthday’s in a week.  But you still don’t surprise me, Thirty! Bring it! I’ll be thirty, flirty, and thriving, you’ll see! (Author’s note: it’s really more like thirty, uhhhh, and managing, but close… Continue reading Around the Corner

Christmas’ End

It's February, Jeff.

Fact of the matter is, this is early for us.  I mean, February’s not even half way over yet and most of our Christmas stuff is actually down and put away. …thinking about it, maybe that’s why Jeff likes it here so much.  Because we leave our Christmas decorations up for so long.

So.  Here we are. Doodcember is finally finished, just in the nick of time.  Had a great time doing it. And at the same time, 2020 is coming to an end. Thank.  GOD. This has been an extraordinarily trying year.  We all went into it with such high hopes, and what did it give us?… Continue reading Doodcember, Days 30 and 31 – Cheers and New

Into the Trash with You

Let it burn.

You know, March started off all nice and normal. Then it took a dive somewhere mid-month. And now here we are. Let’s pray that somehow, 2020 will get better from here. (Admittedly, that might take a while, but here’s hoping.)

Where Did You Go, 2019

Next thing you know, it'll be June and we'll all be screaming.

It’s May. How is it already MAY? Where the heck did April go? Where the heck did THIS YEAR go?? It’s not just me, right?  This year is just speeding right along.  I mean, it feels like Spring just begun, but it’s already mid-Spring.  Easter’s already past.  We’re already talking about Summer events at the… Continue reading Where Did You Go, 2019

Tattoo News

"Not even the symbol for Pisces?" "...but I'm a Virgo." "So?"

So, about 3 or 4 hours after my last post about considering getting a tattoo, I exited Rick’s Tattoos – a highly rated tattoo shop in Northern Virginia – with a bandaged arm and a huge grin.  I’d done it.  I’d gotten my first tattoos. It didn’t hurt as much as I thought it would.… Continue reading Tattoo News
