IRONIC

According to something I saw in the online news, “ironic” is the most misused word in the English language. Apparently we use it when we mean bitter or difficult, when it’s supposed to mean twisted and a bit funny. Or maybe I’m mistaken. (Wouldn’t be the first time.) Yesterday as I was fiddling...

WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT. FIVE LONG-TIME FRIENDS, 40-SOMETHINGS, HAVING FUN. As she leaned forward to catch Sheila’s punch line, Corrine caught the reflection in the mirrored beer sign on the wall. Some guy sitting at the bar a few feet behind her had turned toward Corrine and her friends. He was staring,... Sign in to see full entry.

TEA AND SYMPATHY

CCT mentioned tea as his drink of choice in a comment following my coffee post. The article I’d read about the health effects of coffee had mentioned switching out one coffee a day for tea. There was a box of tea in my cupboard, a box of Lady Gray. Remember Star Trek where Picard tells the computer,... Sign in to see full entry.

YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE

When the kids were little – in the era before seat belts and car seats – there used to be distractions from the back seat when kids got bored with “I Spy” and other games. So it was time for a sing-along. Usually a round of “Row, row, row your boat” would settle things down for a bit, but then the... Sign in to see full entry.

HORRIBLE DISCOVERY! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!

Coffee is bad for you. I just read one of those “20 reasons why..” articles on my online daily news page, and it turns out my 3rd cuppa Joe is gonna make me crabby, make my belly fat, darken my teeth, weaken my bones, and cause sleepless nights. And it can cause irregular heartbeats, high blood... Sign in to see full entry.

LIQUID THINKING

I was reading some of the bits from the “Pen America” volume on mythologies as a way to filter out the political chaff on the news channels. Some of it would have gotten the writer flunked out of Prof. Kropp’s Creative Writing 151 for being obscure and pretentious. There was one thought-provoking... Sign in to see full entry.

BOOKSTORES

It hasn’t been the same here since Borders closed. In my mind it was a real bookstore, with new, classics, non-fiction, best-sellers, and magazines. I know for certain at least three writing groups met at their Seattle’s Best coffee shop regularly. Borders presented guest authors and held book... Sign in to see full entry.

SEPTEMBER SOON

In news from The Center, which used to provide material for Tuesday Blogit bits, it seems Joyce the morning receptionist, will “no longer be working here.” There had been urgent emails from Sara – the director – and from Joan – the volunteer coordinator – seeking subs this week and next. I didn’t... Sign in to see full entry.

SOUP ACAPELLA …

In line with Dr. Kausandra’s recommendations about healthier eating (stuff I knew but hadn’t been doing) I shopped yesterday and chopped this a.m. to make soup acapella using fresh veggies and unprocessed foods – except for seasoning with Knorr’s French Onion mix. I started with a cup of dried beans... Sign in to see full entry.

GRANDSONS, GREAT…

Sixteen plus years ago I lived in Seattle’s Beacon Hill neighborhood, worked at Seattle Central Community College in the Capitol Hill area, and once in a while got together with my youngest son and his partner for lunch, or spent time with my grandkids – high schoolers at the time, who lived in the...
