This past week I made an enormous error by posting a very small clip of a scene without the full context. This isn’t the first time something was misconstrued so I should have known better, but hey, I continue to be human. Fortunately for me, I have readers who will let me know when something… Read More Everything in Context….
Lately, I’ve felt like everything I’ve done is lackluster, including my blogs. I haven’t written anything besides my blogs in over three months. I have ideas but haven’t been too inspired to write. My blogs of late haven’t been funny or filled with interesting research. I don’t even want to read them to check for… Read More Lackluster
Unprecedented is a word I’ve been hearing more and more in recent history. Flashing red lights have been happening with increasing frequency and it makes me wonder what will finally occur to shake the cult-like following of forty percent of our nation? We are now in a dangerous new normal. The talk of putting economics… Read More Unprecedented
Like everyone else, I have been watching the news (obsessively). With retirement comes ample free time to obsess over the news. It’s grim with the pandemic and economic fallout that will surely affect millions of Americans. And yet, there is a spark of hope. For more than three years, there has been a deep divide… Read More Unity…
I’m a curious person and random questions often pop in my head. Recently our team was delivering Holiday cards and everyone on the team was saying Merry Christmas. I usually default to Happy Holidays. Sure, I’m in Human Resources and people expect me to be ‘politically correct’, but recently I read a great post that… Read More Happy Fill in the Blank
I’ve decided to rename duct tape to dyke tape. Because I don’t know about you, but it is my go to fix it tool. I suppose I use the word “tool” liberally. I’ve talked before about embracing the word, Dyke. I’ve also talked about my love affair with duct tape. It seemed natural to bring… Read More Dyke Tape
The other day I was talking with my brother in law and sister on how best to help my father who is starting to need a lot more support to live independently. Of course, for us, the logical conclusion is for him to sell his home and move into an assisted living facility. He does… Read More Lesbian Communes for Mature Adults
Last weekend I finally had the whole weekend to kick back and tuck into a good book (or rather four). I wasn’t writing anything because I am protesting NANO. Every November I push back against the pressure of having to write an entire book in a month. Sure, I’ve done that before, but I don’t… Read More Exploding Eggs Standard
My wife is a planner. She likes organization. I, on the other hand, am comfortable with chaos and spontaneity. As we arrive ever closer to retirement, her planning gene is showing itself in very funny ways. Although our maiden journey won’t be until sometime in March, I nearly fell off my bed laughing when out… Read More The Planner and the Pantster
Recently I heard the slang, “I’d hit that.” I am often fascinated with slang or colloquial phrases since my writing style has been described as “colloquial” (not sure if that was a compliment or not). Anyway, I digress. I wanted to explore this further, including similar expressions and whether lesbians or women loving women use… Read More I’d Hit That….
