Apparently, I am Injured

WARNING: A whining, ranting, and generally self-pitying post follows Perhaps this is obvious to everyone else, but I really though that, SEVEN weeks post-surgery, I would be in better shape. Or at least no longer taking much, if any, pain medication. Every tells me to take it easy, and not be so hard on myself, but I really don’t think …Continue reading →

PhotoHunt: Twelve

The first flowers my sweetie ever gave me. A dozen (not red, but conveying that essence 🙂 ) roses with white stock as an accent. NOTE: this did not publish on time! PhotoHunt

Happy Merry Everything

It’s been an interesting trip so far. Our Wed flight was easy-peasy and my sister met us right outside the security area. We were checked in and unpacking by 9:30. We’re staying at the Parc 55, which opened in March of this year. I suspect it must be a refurb hotel,and not a new-built,but that’s because a number of small items …Continue reading →

A Real Post

I’m mostly a little overwhelmed with life. My family usually gathers for Turkey Day, but my health issues precluded that. So we’re gathering (even my parents, who’re divorced 30+ years and haven’t been in the same room since my sister’s wedding 6 yrs ago) for Christmas. We’re leaving for San Francisco in a few hours and I’m just trying to …Continue reading →

Bright Blessings!

Things got very busy this week. Compressed work days and deep tiredness make for a non-writing Lisa. In the meantime: Belated Yule Blessings! I’m off to spend the next several days with my family in San Francisco. Perhaps I will have stories to tell when I return!

This needs to be a two parter. Because the essence of fast is that this: is now this: (timeline: March 2006, October 2009) PhotoHunt

How it works

Make sure ad specifies three specific qualities we are looking for and the  three elements that are absolutely required to be considered. Post the ad in two (appropriate) categories on craigslist at …Continue reading →

PhotoHunt: Undesirable

I *had* nothing to post this week. . . then my sweetie reminded me of this: It’s a bas-relief from the British museum, of the fall of Ninevah (Assyria). Photo taken in April 2007. The two men are being tortured, skinned alive actually. I would say that being skinned alive is undesirable. I wonder what other photohunters will conjure up? …Continue reading →

If You Are Reading This, You Care About the EFF

If you blog, or read blogs; have a Facebook account, Twitter, read news online, have a web page . . . in short: if you do anything online — you care about the EFF. Right now you can do two things to support them and it won’t cost you any money. 1. Sign the Open Letter to President Obama. When …Continue reading →

Time Machine: 11/11 (Tarot Reading)

I was talking with my friend B. and he asked if I’d done a tarot reading about my situation. “Oh yes,” I said, “and I got bubkus. Nada. Chaos. I know it’s often tough to read for oneself, but I really got zip.” “What did you ask?” he reasonably wondered. “Um. Well, I couldn’t come up with a specific question, …Continue reading →
