I asked someone this weekend, "What is it like, really like, living in Florida? You know, tell me about the bugs, heat, and day-to-day life." I've heard about the monster bugs. I've even seen the threatening pictures, but seriously, how prevalent are they and how do you deal with them? I want the meat and … Continue reading The Sex Change Capital Turns a New Leaf
With visions that after several meditation sessions I would look and function like Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider, I was extremely reticent to wait until before bed when the waves (theta, gamma, radiation, or something) I was supposed to be targeting were easiest to come by. I was pumped to put it lightly. I walked … Continue reading Lara Croft, Entropy, and an Eyebrow on Fire
What if I could turn off the genes creating Hashimoto's Thyroiditis? This was the question burning a hole in my head while reading You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter. What if I didn't have to suffer from chronic headaches... Or migraines Or fatigue Or insomnia Or shingles? Now, I am no slouch when it … Continue reading My Genes Don’t Fit ME Anymore: Please Turn Off
My shower episode was an epic failure in communication with the divine. I felt wounded and lied to.
"Oh! Are you learning Mendelivian Genetics?" my husband asked my children who were drilling us incessantly about every family member's hair and eye color. The obvious grey color that most of their grandparents suffer from was not what they were looking for. And when they discovered that Pappa had brownish red hair before his silver … Continue reading The Encyclopedia That Forgot Medelian Genetics
The three year old boy was running across the wide street, eyes forward, seeing nor sensing any danger. He had escaped, gotten away and it didn't matter how or what happened afterward. He was free. My friend was shaken to her core, sobbing, and trembling like a baby bird because it had been her three … Continue reading If we treat him now, he won’t have Asperger’s
Stuck in my little world of Facebook with my high school "friends", community acquaintances, and family (extended, distended, in-lawed and out-lawed), I was very much adverse to creating much of a network or presence on LinkedIn. I did not need two platforms filled with personal agendas, sales pitches, perfect pictures of imperfect families, and the political deluge people call having an opinion. Having avoided it successfully for years, I finally branched out with the purpose of building an audience for this blog. Yes, I freely admit it.
My brain was like the most determined, angry drill sergeant ever. I met with some resistance in the form of 387409136450987 germs my children brought home from school; and of course, all of them took up residence in me. So I rediscovered myself and tried to get healthy, fit and thin from my couch for most of the year. Trust me, that was not a winning combination.
Everyone has a little passive aggressive in them. Ask any employer that’s pissed off its employees. One of the ways an economist analyzes the world and how it works is by asking the question: “What should happen?” They think of this as efficiency. The reason you make tens of thousands of dollars a year versus … Continue reading Office Supply Theft Leads to Self-Flagellation
Every September my husband turns into an angry hornet, stinging anyone or anything all for one reason. He HATES the time when our seasonal pool must bid us adieu for the cold fall, winter, and spring months. With a passion for swimming and feeling the water on his skin every single day, those months … Continue reading Mutant Grizzly vs. Mars
