I've been lucky enough to be able to travel within the US. Not as much as some people. Definitely more than others. I've visited some major cities, specifically Honolulu, New Orleans, and most recently, Las Vegas. All busy, bustling cities. All filled with tourists. All with lots to do. I enjoyed each of them, but … Continue reading The Dark Side of Tourist Destinations
Today, I learned a new term today, a term that I didn't even know I needed to know - grief porn, also known as mourning sickness. Yes, I know Wiki is not a valid source, but this isn't a formal citation. Today is September 11th. For those of you outside the US, I'm not sure … Continue reading I Learned a New Term Today
I'll be honest, I spend a lot of time on Facebook. Sometimes for work, sometimes for entertainment, sometimes just because of boredom. But it wasn't until today that I got prompted to help correct information for various FB business pages. Some of them were easy and just wanted to know if a picture properly represented … Continue reading Fun with Facebook Edits
I know the calendar still says summer, but since school started this week for the kid, summer is over. Which is a shame, because I love summer. I love not having crazy schedules, and I love everyone getting enough sleep. I love spending time with the kids, since they're usually pretty fun to be around, … Continue reading Goodbye, Summer
I give up. Actually, I don't, but there are times like this, when I'd like to just stop. Trump and the tweets. The blatant racism. Send them back to where they came from? Three of them were born in the US! Then Baltimore. Elijah Cummings, who has done so much more than anyone with the … Continue reading What Are We Doing?
We all have secrets. We do, right? If you don't, well, just move on, lol. Maybe you go shopping and hide your purchases. Maybe you go out of your way to avoid a certain person. Maybe you go along with something, just to keep the piece. Maybe you hate mushrooms (this is also me, but … Continue reading My Dirty Little Secret
I often joke that they'll steal anything here that's not nailed down, because there's a crazy amount of property crime and theft here. That apparently extends to intellectual property, too, based on some very notable examples I've seen here. For the purposes of this post, it's kind of humorous, but seriously, people, you don't steal … Continue reading They Won’t Mind If I Steal This, Right?
I have no idea who said it initially, but I'd love to give credit where it's due, if someone knows. "Democrats play checkers. Republicans play chess." For those unfamiliar with the quote, it's a reference to the long-term strategy Republicans have used to take control of state legislatures and to take over DC. Trump landing … Continue reading It’s Time to Learn to Play Chess
I'd like to say I'm one of those women who has chosen to age gracefully. Except I don't think I am. I'll say it out loud, I'm 44. We'll pretend that I didn't start to tell someone recently that I'm 43, lol. Getting older is not for wimps. We gain weight. It's harder to lose … Continue reading Aging Gracefully… or not
One of my day jobs is working for a liquidation/wholesale business, managing online sales. One of the online avenues for that is eBay. I'm sure by now, nearly everyone has tried eBay at least once, which is how I know that people will buy ANYTHING on eBay. It's no wonder that you sometimes hear stories … Continue reading People Will Buy the Strangest Things
