I like the movie Groundhog Day (1993). It wasn’t an instant like for me but it grew on me with every watch. I saw this Mental Floss article about it that showed the movie from Rita’s perspective. Oh, why do you have to do this to me? This is why I can’t like nice things. No, there is no good reason Rita should fall in love with Phil when you edit the movie like that. No good reason, but maybe I thought of a reason. Continue reading
A simple prayer tonight.
Please, don’t let me ever become someone’s muse.
I heard the now oldie on the radio, Hey There Delilah by the Plain White T’s. You probably remember it was nominated for a Grammy back in 2008. Yes, it’s been that long ago. It was a love song but it was a fictional love song inspired by an actual woman. Which makes it a little complicated and a tad creepy. Continue reading
In this age of online presence, I have developed certain goals. Besides the serious ones of never discovering my picture on naughty websites or having my identity stolen (why anyone would want to hide under this persona I’ll never know but I still don’t want it to happen) I have a few other goals more as a matter of pride. I have discussed them before here. In short, I am hoping I am never cringing at the people at Walmart photos and realize, “Wait a minute! Those pants look familiar.” And look down in horror to see the same pair on me. Or to have any of my photos appear on awkward family photos and be relegated to meme mockery. No, thank you. I now have a new fear to add to the list. I don’t want to find any of my poems on a bad poetry website. Continue reading
Hmm, I see you size me up with that look in your eye. “Any kiddos?” you ask which is PC for any human connections. Continue reading
To be considered a true Wyomingite you must have a dog. Or cat. But really a dog. With the exception of me but in many ways I am a Wyomingite paradox. But this isn’t really about me it’s about a particular dog on one of my walking routes. Last fall I encountered this dog while on my walks and never took a picture. This spring, or rather after the winter thaw, I again walked by this house and the dog did not disappoint me. This time I took a picture as proof. Continue reading
As a quiet person I understand how difficult it is to come up with conversation topics. I have had my share of awkward ice-breaker attempts. It’s not always pretty. So, I don’t condemn the dental hygienist who failed at trying to put me at ease during my semi-annual appointment. Why the harsh criticism? How can I judge someone who was doing her best a being friendly? Continue reading
I opened my package of Starbursts and saw this little pink guy. He was all squished and mushed. But he was a pink guy so… Continue reading
Let me start off by saying (again) all I want to do is walk. Well, walk and get credit, so to speak, for walking. In other words, I just want to measure my distance per walk and see how far I’ve gone and set goals about how far I want to go. That’s all. In order to do this, I need a device to measure my distance. Seems simple enough, or so I thought. But nothing is really that simple, right?
I like to watch Nature on PBS. There are so many dedicated people who have a passion for doing good and helping the world out. In one program I watched different people help out orphaned animals. Not the typical, cutesy animals that usually get all the attention either. A sloth, a bat, and a kangaroo were all saved because three different people in three different locations worked to save these animals. Continue reading
I watched this motivational video about things a person should do every day. Maybe I wasn’t in the mood to be motivated because I can only remember one thing, “Make your bed.” I happen to make my bed every day so that could be why I remembered it. “Check!” I must be a successful person then, right? Continue reading
