As you all know, the world is coming to an end on December 21st. I’m sorry if you had plans for later than that, you’ll have to check with your insurance policy if armageddon is covered in their refund policy. Fear not, however : luckily for you advance planners out there, I have just now … Continue reading
Weekly Photo Challenge: Green
Yes, I know – this is last week’s photo challenge ! Whatever, we should all be going green anyway, shouldn’t we ? So here is some green I’ve collected from my travels of last year. “Mouse over” the pictures for details and locations, or click for the big picture !
Balancing act – Fail !
Rats. It’s been 6 days since my last post. So much for daily posts for NaBloPo Month. Ah well, I never really believed that I would be posting daily – that’s a bit much for me, seeing as how I have a tendency to start feverishly writing about something, only to realize an hour later … Continue reading
Dear 1%: could you be any more inhuman ? News stories not for the faint of heart
I’m not much of an investor, but my father does “play” the stock market, and so I try to occasionally keep an eye open for what happens over in the strange world of finance. It truly feels to me like a distant, alien planet, I must say, where the ordinary rules of every day life … Continue reading
The J files: still searching for that elusive job
Yes, yes, I know. There is one particular subject that I’ve been avoiding like the plague, here on this blog. It seems like I’ve gone in all different directions all at once with my writing, except for this one – me ! I was just looking back at the posts I’ve written up until now, … Continue reading
Geezers rock. Take that, Lady Biebs.
Yes, Lady Biebs is my new word for those annoying whiny noises that seem to follow you around like a buzzing mosquito, relentlessly refusing to go away even when you try as hard as you can to ignore them. Have you heard of Candi Staton ? I hadn’t until very recently, when I heard her … Continue reading
Coffee and taartjes all around. On Jupiter.
Look what came into the post today! (this Jupiter-day that is…) So just before my fall into the oblivion of writer’s block (does that count if one is not actually a writer ? I wasn’t blocked trying to write, I was blocked because I didn’t even try to write. Does that make any sense ?) … Continue reading
Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry
“When in doubt, post a photo challenge.” ∞ Truth be told, it’s not that I’m uninspired to write anything new. It’s that upon reading the theme for this week’s photo challenge, I immediately thought of this picture. Being modest enough to recognize when inspiration has taken the lead and I should just shut up and … Continue reading
Reality Radio: when Canada beats the sh*t out of Jersey Shore
Disclaimer: this post is not about the TV show “Jersey Shore”. I haven’t even seen it, and trusted sources have led me to believe that I should best keep it that way. Also, I’m pretty sure Canada had nothing to do with sending hurricane Sandy on a rampage on the Jersey shore. ∞ Sometimes life … Continue reading
Hi! It’s me, November…
It’s been awhile… Okay, that’s a massive understatement. I haven’t written anything in… a long time. You could say that my blog flat-lined (that’s what – understandably – my site stats look like, at least). But if you’ve seen the move “Flatliners”, you know to expect the unexpected (it’s kind of like the Spanish Inquisition … Continue reading
