Okay, for reals, I'm going to wax poetic about my bed. It is, in fact, my happy place. I don't know if I'm legendarily lazy or what, but I could literally spend ALL DAY in my bed and be mostly content. I would have to leave it for Starbucks. And going to the bathroom. And… Continue reading my happy place
More random thoughts today. This time it’s about giving. And doing stuff for other people. This came up in a recent mentoring session I had, and in a blog post I read recently. In both cases, the person I was talking to (or reading, as the case may be) was struggling with the idea of… Continue reading it’s for you…and me!
Today I'm thinking about the concept of work life, and personal life, and how sometimes there's a lot of pressure (or preference) to keeping those two things separate. This was prompted by an awesome conversation with one of my coworkers, who happens to be my partner-in-vaping-in-inappropriate-places-crime (you know who you are). He said that he… Continue reading I am a people!
Hi, my name is 2N, and I like pineapple on my pizza. Also: I use ketchup on everything, I swear by floppy bacon, and I put my toilet paper on the roll with the end going over the top of the roll. I'm a woman, and sometimes I don't get why people get hung up… Continue reading get your memes off my pineapple
When I decide to throw calorie counting to the winds, I like to do it in a highly visible, extremely obnoxious fashion. I bring you: karaoke night at our favorite divey karaoke bar from back in the day. Similar to the monthly coffee date, last night was a wonderfully long walk down memory lane, in… Continue reading get brunked…old school style
What do you do if you wake up in the middle of the night with chest pains? Obviously, you google it and scare the shit out of yourself even more than you are already. Wednesday morning I woke up at around 3 am with chest pain. At first it felt like bad heartburn but then… Continue reading bambulance!
Remember way back when, when Kid was turning six and wanted me to announce that today was his very-special-extremely-important day? Yes. It seems like yesterday. And then, last weekend, this happened. No, but seriously, it did. NOT ONLY did he turn eighteen last year (as you will recall, he was in fact born in the… Continue reading well, it happened
As discussed, it's freaking hot here. Ridiculously hot. I am so over it. Also, as you may or may not know, BandGeek is diabetic. These two seemingly-unrelated facts led to this purchase, which basically has helped to mitigate both problems: That's right. We've been having homemade, (mostly) sugar-free ice cream up in this house. So… Continue reading ice-creamy goodness
I don't do well in the heat. Being that I live in the Pacific Northwest, you can imagine the effect the blistering heat has on something that is accustomed to a damp, dank environment. That's right. I'm like a slug dried up on the sidewalk. Here I would normally insert a picture as reference, but...just… Continue reading it’s hotter than shut-your-mouth
As The Kid likes to remind me (and thank me for, for some reason), he was born in the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand. Which means that this year, 2018, he is turning...you guessed it...18. 18. Eighteen. One-Eight. Like, do you remember this? Because I sure do. I literally feel like this was just… Continue reading we approach a milestone
