Embracing the nerd within me.

I know a lot of people who have tattoos. some even have many. Some are very close to me- 2 of my kids+my partner have them- the above picture is the tattoo my son had in honor of our beloved dog, Sirius, who passed away a few months ago. (still brings tears to my eyes …

How I stopped complaining.

I don’t particularly like complaining. Doesn’t necessarily mean I don’t do it- but I don’t enjoy it. I decided on my 50th birthday that I am not about to spend the next 50 or so years , going on and on about things . Either I can change the situation-or I can’t- either way- what’s …

Perfecting my on-line grocery shopping skills!

I know- Pfizer+Moderna+Astra-zenica+ more labs are on it- soon everybody will be happily hugging sweaty people they barely know, and everything will be back to normal. But- Us introverts, have believed in social distancing since the stone age, certainly before Covid began, so we needn’t change our non social habits just because vaccinations are in …

“Tell me lies, sweet little white lies”. (not Mac, Fleetwood).

white lie: (Merriam Webster) Definition of white lie : a lie about a small or unimportant matter that someone tells to avoid hurting another person.example:”He told a (little) white lie as his excuse for missing the party”.

The introvert’s best friends.

I live in a rural village. Pastoral.  Rustic. Serene. well-not exactly. I am surrounded by neighbors that aren’t exactly big fans of peace and quiet. While I seem to have an acute problem with noise.  I am fully aware that they are the “normal people”‘ I am the problematic one +that I sound like an …

If you are vegan/avid health freak/ curious George- than you couldn’t have escaped the pea protein craze. Evidently, a lot of vegan protein powders are made of, mainly , pea protein. So- I thought to myself-( I do that a lot. it’s definitely a good thing to befriend yourself, especially in times of social isolation- …

Does changing your mind=failure??

So, I’ve had this “math fantasy” for a long time. There you go- Just when you thought you’ve heard every strange fantasy, comes a strange new one and opens your perspective. The thing is, when I were in high school, I liked the cleanliness of math equations. the fact that there was a clear cut …

Apple-sauce instead of what??

Apples are a favorite of mine. I absolutely think fruit are nature’s fancy cakes, and I am risking being labeled as a douch/purist/hippie/all 3 together-and I don’t give a f%^&. Because- I am a true skeptic, and almost everything in life-in my opinion , is to be seriously doubted and double, if not triple-checked before …

Why I keep asking myself “why?”

When I was “somewhat of a boss” at work. I attended a management course at the university. They taught us all kinds of methods to engage workers in the work they are meant to do. The work they get paid to do. I know I sound old , but all the while I thought “why …

The day we had a power cut.

So a few weeks ago, all of a sudden, in the middle of the day, a super hot and humid day might I add, everything stopped. No lights, AC, computers, and the internet -shut down. Apparently, there was a fire close by, which caused our life to rewind to the ’50s in a split second. …
