other stuff

As I move away from poetry, I plan to pursue other creative outlets. One idea is to write a serial blog, posting bits of a short story. Another is more music-oriented, but needs to be fleshed out more. Even though March and the beginning of spring approaches, there’s nothing like getting sick on the last…

newest poetry book

newest poetry book

My last poetry book is out on Kindle! The paperback is available here. It’s the third and, for now, the last poetry book I’ll be publishing for a while. I’ve been trying to figure out how to get the Amazon link on the sidebar but it seems to elude me for the moment. Thanks to…

Today skinny jeans are a trend, like leggings and jeggings. Trends that I have never cared about in the past, but have somehow recently found myself wearing them and feeling like I am living in the modern world. Even Conan wore jeggings. Yet I must admit that I’ve always cared about being fashionable. Especially while growing…

hole-y denim

A trend in denim jeans is having holes in them. Depending on your age, you may immediately think of the 80s-90s where holes in jeans were cool, just like big hair. I never got into the trend of holes in jeans unless it was made naturally through normal wear and tear. Plus they cost more…

The prettiest duck I ever saw was in London. I didn’t know these birds existed. I like ducks in general, but they all look the same. But when I saw this duck in a London Park I was quite taken with the flashy colors. Blingy birds. I found out they’re called Mandarin ducks and they’re…

shopping carts

I’ve always wondered why some people don’t put carts in the cart corrals. Some excuses could be reasoned, though not necessarily be proper etiquette: The cart corral is too far away from my car. I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to push the cart to the corral. I’m not bothering with putting carts away…

bread :: Italy Italy is beautiful for its art and food, at least to me. But if you go for those things, it’s good to like Renaissance-era art, because the country looks like it’s stuck there. The gorgeous old buildings of Venice, Florence, even the lazy Pisa tower just keep me mentally in the Renaissance.…

bread

bread

Last time I talked about nutritional yeast; today will be about bread. Mmmmmmmm…bread. I like bread. I love bread. All kinds, like plain ol’ white bread, wheat bread, hot dog bread, hamburger bread, artisan bread, baguettes, ciabatta, sourdough, flatbread, cornbread. And all the other varieties you like, I probably like too. But I can’t eat…

nutty for the nooch

I’m trying new things these days. The local grocery store had a big sale on Bragg products. I use apple cider vinegar regularly and the sale was better than the online prices so I stocked up. Then one day I was reading the weekly grocery store mailer (the digital one; I ironically tossed the paper…

random fact

Did you know that if you take hot showers the steam can shrink the gaskets of your shower door hinge, therefore making it difficult to open that door, even causing the tempered glass to chip when you try to open the door? And the solution is to change out the gasket with a new one…
