  • Why Yesterday Amused Me

    Yesterday I was glued to the tv news in a way I haven’t been since 9/11. Watching the insurrection happening in DC as Trumpers laid siege to the Capital was unreal in some ways, but in other ways, it was all too expected. As I read the responses from all my friends on Facebook (shame, […]

  • Doctor Televisits – Like Them or Not?

    During the Coronavirus quarantine, I have had to do several doctor visits by video chat. So far, I’ve had to do them with my family doctor and psychiatrist, and starting this week, I will be doing them with my counselor too. I must admit I’m not big on the whole televisit thing. I always worry […]

  • Trump Thinks I’m a Fan…

    I got an email today from Trump, thanking me for all my support and for being a part of “Trump Nation”…um, I can’t stand you dude. Where does he get his information from? Does he just buy email lists and then pretend that you already support him, thinking that will somehow guarantee your support in […]

  • A Couple Political Thoughts

    1) The Trump phenomenon has made me come to a rather depressing conclusion. I honestly do not think Trump is inherently more racist than many others of his social class and age, but the strong narcissist in him would do anything to please his adoring fans and many of them seem to WANT the racist […]

  • Wanting to Be Special

    Do you feel “special”? Do you long to feel special? It seems to me that people strive so hard to be special, to be exceptional. Ordinary is for losers…or at least that is the message we seem to get from society. I’ll admit that I share this obsession. Maybe part of my problem started with […]

  • Celebrity Deaths

    Today the world is mourning the loss of basketball superstar Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and 7 others who died in a helicopter crash yesterday. Personally, I am not a sports fan, so I didn’t feel much emotionally in connection to Kobe, although I empathize with the loss that his family, friends, fellow players, […]

  • A Few Random Life Thoughts/Happenings

    The grief from losing my kitty is starting to ease a little bit. Still a big loss, but I’m trying to focus on the future and how to bring more good things into my life right now because it feels like I could really use some good things. Tonight I’m attending a poetry class at […]

  • Joker Movie – Thoughts and Feelings

    First off, I think this is a great film to really make you think about society and some of the true causes of violence and group anger. This movie can be interpreted many different ways and honestly can make you forget that it has anything to do with the superhero universe. It is gritty and […]

  • Democratic Debates Thoughts & Opinions

    Did you watch any of the Democratic debates the last two nights? I watched and thought I’d share some of my thoughts and opinions. Most of my feelings of who I already somewhat liked (Bernie, Yang, Gabbard, Warren) haven’t really changed, even though I think some of them did better than others at the debates. […]

  • I’m Livestreaming on YouTube

    I’ve started livestreaming on my YouTube channel just for something to do and another way to connect with people. I’m doing most of the streams on my personal channel, rather than my toys and books channel. My personal channel has a lot less subs (around 200 compared to over 3,000), so if you are a […]
