SS (which is the nickname I used to use in my old blog for my wife/partner – it means Someone Special) and I flew home last night after a long weekend in Florida to visit family.

I made a video of the view out my window as we landed because I just love landings. It’s just so amazing, to me, that such a massive thing … Read full post

     

Coulda Been A Great Product Idea . . .

CannabiscuitsSo, based on an idea that occurred to me the other night, I was going to say:

“You know those biscuits that come in a can? Well, I think they should sell them in Colorado with pot in them, and call them Cannabiscuits. Just saying”

And then I Googled it and found out there is apparently already a band with that name, and at least … Read full post

     

Little Outings

Posted October 31, 2014 By LifeIsChange

For the past 20 years or so, I’ve pretty much been what one might call “out”, if that’s defined as not being “in”. It’s not that I make any big announcements or formally “come out” to people. I’m just me, and I don’t lie or talk in riddles to keep from using the “she” pronoun when talking about my spouse. Years ago, I did, because, … Read full post

Life Is Change

Six years ago yesterday, I began writing the lifeischange.wordpress.com blog. In some ways, it’s hard to believe six whole years have passed since then, yet in other ways, when I look at how much my Life has in fact Changed since then, I can’t believe it isn’t more like 16 years.

Wow.

Almost a year and a half ago, I stopped posting and eventually made … Read full post

Update 10/30/14: Bringing back some old posts. . .

This always kind of irks me, but then I have to laugh. It’s a Verizon message that comes up sometimes when we turn the TV on, and it says to press the Menu button on the Fios remote. All well and good, but what’s … Read full post

This is sort of another old-entry rerun, from back when I had my old (2003-2006) online diary.  I can’t seem to find the text anymore, but I remember what I wrote.  It’s mainly the images that make the post, anyway.

It went something like this.

As a child, I followed Sister around and did pretty much whatever she did.  She liked to draw, so I … Read full post

Update 10/30/14: This is a condensed version of one of my favorite old posts.

I’m reading Eats, Shoots, & Leaves, and I was talking with Sister about it.  Although the book is specifically about punctuation, we got to talking about grammar and sentence structure as well, and wondering why there are so … Read full post

This person does not suck at Craigslist.  This is an example of how to write a good ad:

Big couch with fold out.  I say it’s ugly, but my husband disagrees.  I’ve seen his ex-wife, so I know he has questionable taste.

After the Pop Tarts conversation, Sister managed to crack me up again during an installment of our ongoing game of combining words to make new ones.

She is in the bridal business and routinely rents tuxedos to people.  She commented that the tux … Read full post

Update 10/30/14: Bringing back some old posts. . .

This evening, my sister and I were on the phone (we talk every evening).  She was scanning the local news headlines and commented on a story.

“This says a teenager stabbed her boyfriend over a box of Pop Tarts,” she said.

“Oh, geez,” I … Read full post
