Random (and rather grumpy!) Items from the Junk Drawer of my Mind #73

1. J and I got flu shots yesterday. It’s the first time I’ve gotten one in several years, but since we’ll be traveling this winter, we thought it would be a good idea. J, of course, had no ill effects whatsoever. I, of course, have an arm that’s sore from shoulder to elbow and a […]

Self-Portrait Challenge: What I Wear, week 1

Ok, it’s technically still October, which perhaps means I should do one more week of “Food and Me” but I’m tired of that theme and the new theme for the Self-Portrait Challenge has been announced, so I’m doing that one - What I Wear.
This one should be easy, right? I mean, come on…I wear clothes! […]

8 True Things and 0 Big, Fat Lies

Here we go, y’all! Time to reveal all in the contest I posted last week.
Here’s what I did when I decided to do this contest: I made a list of 8 facts, then I simply chose one and put an “Opposite George” spin on it - turned it upside down and wrote it as if […]

Visiting a City that Never Was

Before I talk about anything else, I just want to throw out one final reminder about the little contest going on here. You have a few more hours (as of the time I’m writing this…obviously I have no idea what time it is as you’re reading this!) to guess the lie in my 7 Truths […]

The Year was 1962

I saw this thing several weeks ago over at Vesper’s Escape that I thought was really cool, but I’m only just now getting around to doing it. The idea is that you go to Google Images and type in the year you were born, then select some images that give a sense of what that […]

Getting To Know You: A Walk on the Spooky Side

I haven’t done the Getting to Know You Questions over at Create a Connection for a while now, because for whatever reason they just haven’t been things I’ve wanted to talk about (although I really appreciate the effort the monthly hosts put into that feature and I read it every week).
But this week the questions […]

Random Items from the Junk Drawer of my Mind #72

1. I’m having such fun reading the guesses people are making in the little contest I posted yesterday, and seeing why you’re choosing what you do! I’m dying to comment on the comments, but of course I can’t do that yet. When I post the winner (probably on Monday) I’ll answer some of the questions […]

7 True Things and 1 Big, Fat Lie

The lovely Natalya tagged me a few days ago to do that “Seven Random Facts” meme that’s been going around for a while. I’ve actually done that one before, but it’s the kind of thing that’s repeatable if you come up with another bunch of factoids, so I’m taking her up on the challenge.
It’s the […]
