The answer is listen to music, sit still, wake up after the sun. The question? What do normal people do?
Category: Brains are Weird!
No computer will ever be able to perfectly mimic the human brain. It can do astonishing (and confusing) things!
Right after receiving a CSA box filled with goodies, I had the following text exchange with DH2U: "Lentils and Rice or Cauliflower Pizza?" "Pizza!" "I see you are undecided. I'll check back later." Yes, I can be a smart alec. The infamous "they" say that no one likes one, yet when I make those types of… Continue reading Perfect Comebacks
Everything in Its Place
I'm a firm believer in things having a very definite and permanent home. When I don't have an exact spot for something, I end up wasting tons of time looking for it, like my keys (Note: I have progressed past my tried and true nail to an actual key holder - thanks Ma & Tom.). I… Continue reading Everything in Its Place
As I sit here writing this (on Sunday afternoon), I'm experiencing a minor miracle: I am watching it rain. This is becoming a rarer event with each passing year here in Southern California. (Our local news caught the image well. I love how they keep talking about our winter "storm" and our drenching rain. They must… Continue reading Rare Appreciation
I for one am very happy that the holidays are over and life is returning to normal. This is not to say that I haven't enjoyed the time off or catching up with friends and family. It is all about how glad I am to say goodbye to the goodies that are around throughout the… Continue reading No Willpower
The other day I caught myself doing my most old lady act to date: I put a partially used Kleenex in my sweater sleeve. I couldn't believe it! Instead of turning 43, did I actually turn 93?!?! As I've mentioned before, I suffer from allergies. With our weather so much warmer so much later into… Continue reading Old Lady
When I wrote my post on the idea of building a whole new me, I had planned to write about daydreaming instead. It was another hijacked blog post! Throughout my life I've been a big daydreamer. My mind creates fabulous lives for me to live. Some are short-lived, fanciful adventures, and some go on for ages. Despite… Continue reading Daydream Believer
Too Many Tabs
A web surfing adventure brought me to the Blogess. I love her. So often she'll say something that resonates perfectly with me ... and then take it to an extreme (which is so me but beyond my current ability level). On this latest visit to her site was a picture from A Pair of Pears that describes… Continue reading Too Many Tabs
Recently I was sitting an a cafe, notepad out and expecting my pen to start moving. With the blank page still staring at me, I realized I was waiting for inspiration to strike. Steven King's quotation popped into my head: Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to… Continue reading Ideas Strike
Lull to Sleep
The other night an old pickup truck was waiting for the light to change right outside my bedroom window. It's engine revved unevenly, with fits and starts interposed into a few seconds of normal idling. I found the unpredictability of the sound to be soothing and soporific (that word was solidified into my vocabulary by… Continue reading Lull to Sleep
