6 years ago already?!
Month: December 2021
Jim often says what I’m thinking even when I don’t say it. I prefer to remain silent rather than say something I might regret once the anger has cooled. Sometimes, though, I feel like I should have allowed myself the response. I’m an angry, passionate hobbit, locked in the 5’5″ body of a calm looking person. As Ash said in Evil Dead, “It’s a trap.”
The last decade, and the last few years especially, have left me with an inner Hulk that is not silent, is not polite, and is really, really tired of the whole both sides argument. There’s more than two sides to virtually any situation, but the evidence from around the world over a period of 60+ years should have ended this particular scenario before it ever began. I’m pretty burnt out on watching that “other side” needlessly die.
Ah, season 10 was enjoyable!
“Is there a 3 knuckler?”
Terry Pratchett understood. 🙂
I’d forgotten about this one. 🙂
Yep, I still haven’t gotten any better at wrapping presents.
December 23rd is a rough day for me and today cements that feeling even more.
19 years ago my father passed away, just a week before my new family and I were to go visit him. I still remember that day like it was just yesterday.
Today my family had to say goodbye to our English Springer Spaniel, Suzie. She’s been slowly failing for awhile now but she embodied the phrase, “The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” She was an enthusiastic wiggle butt to the end and we love her very much.
May the next 23rd be a better day, but this one bites.
I don’t believe in great countries, I believe in great people – and I’ve met great people from many different countries. A country should, first and foremost, enable it’s people to be great human beings. Do that and nobody will feel the need to advertise which country is greatest.
Oh Lord was this a miserable moment in time!
I still firmly believe this, though the last several years have shaken that faith somewhat. But that’s the whole point of making it better today rather than waiting until tomorrow or whining about yesterday.
