Sixth Folder, Sixth Picture

Posted November 2, 2008 By LifeIsChange

I was randomly browsing blogs instead of going to bed last night, like I should have, and I found a post someone made after seeing another blogger do the same thing.  It said to open your MyPictures, then go to the sixth folder and post the sixth picture. Hmm.  Mine is kind of weird and […]

The “New” New Math

Posted March 11, 2009 By LifeIsChange

I just had an idea, when I talked with my sister after she watched American Idol tonight. I don’t normally watch it, but she does, so I asked her how many contestants were left.  When she answered, I immediately said, “I can see this becoming the new way to teach kids math, instead of the […]

Uh-Oh! This is Me!

Posted April 5, 2009 By LifeIsChange

For reasons I’ll get into some other time, my computer is on my dining room table right now and not in my office, where it belongs.  The window that is behind me as I sit and work on the computer looks out over the parking lot in front of my apartment, and at the building […]

Reading Things Wrong

Posted April 8, 2009 By LifeIsChange

I have this weird tendency to read things wrong.  A lot.  Sometimes I even start trying to “make sense” of whatever nonsense thing I thought I read in the fractions-of-seconds before I realize I read it wrong. So today, I went to the grocery store to pick up something for lunch. (Deli Department’s  Savory Tarrgaon […]

Guess What I Saw. Sir.

Posted April 14, 2009 By LifeIsChange

I went to the dermatologist this morning about a cyst on my neck (antibiotics, hoping it will resolve itself – works for me), and while I was sitting in the waiting room, filling out the forms on the clipboard, I glanced at the coffee table, and guess what I saw.  The Colon Issue! I wonder […]

Pop Tarts?

Posted April 17, 2009 By LifeIsChange

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 said. I listened, expecting her to say something else, like how […]

Sister Does It Again

Posted April 18, 2009 By LifeIsChange

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 company they deal with no longer rents pocket squares, but that they […]

How To Write A Good Ad

Posted April 25, 2009 By LifeIsChange

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. I am awesome though….  How awesome you say?  I’m so awesome, I’m offering […]

“How Can You Say This Differently?”

Posted April 26, 2009 By LifeIsChange

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 many people close to our ages who went to school in the same state we did, who […]

Over-40 Eyesight

Posted May 3, 2009 By LifeIsChange

Last weekend, my friend RB and I met up at a bookstore.  We looked at several books (even bought some from the clearance bins), and sat in the coffee shop and chatted. I discovered that jalapeno potato chips and mocha latte are really good together, but I digress. When we went up front to check […]

Bliss List – Item 4

Posted July 9, 2009 By LifeIsChange

I am aware that I’m going to be giving away what a strange child I was with this entry, but oh well. I used to love to watch the bug truck out my bedroom window.  It always went by after I was in bed.  My bed was up against the wall by the window, and […]

Fifteen Things

Posted September 7, 2009 By LifeIsChange

If someone had told me, when I was a kid in the ’70’s, that when I grew up I’d be able to type a message into a machine, press a button, and someone clear across the world could read and respond to that message within seconds, I would have been astonished.  I wouldn’t have been […]

I Channeled Mrs. Puff

Posted February 21, 2010 By LifeIsChange

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 […]

Strangers In The Nose

Posted March 4, 2010 By LifeIsChange

Ok . . . purely in the interest of blogging on topic for NaBloPoMo, I’m going to admit one of my stranger quirks from my childhood. Here goes. When I was three, I called boogers “strangers”.  I don’t know why.  I actually don’t remember the word “booger” being used in my house.  I don’t remember […]

Old Strangers

Posted March 7, 2010 By LifeIsChange

This Stranger Story happened to Sister, but it made us both laugh and she said I could add it to my theme-blogging for March. She was sitting in the drive-through line at Dunkin Donuts the other day, getting coffee on her way to work, when an old man in an SUV pulled up beside her.  […]

Strange Facts

Posted March 9, 2010 By LifeIsChange

I found a fun web site while trolling for Strange(r) topic material for this month. There are a lot of interesting and amusing tidbits on this site, and here are some of my initial thoughts or reactions to some of them (’cause I know everybody out there is on the edge of their seats, wondering […]

Things That Are Strange

Posted March 29, 2010 By LifeIsChange

1.  When you’re shopping and you see an adorable musical teddy-bear wearing a shirt that says, “You are the love of my life”, and you’re thinking you would like to buy it for your Someone Special, and you squeeze its paw to see what song it plays . . . and it’s the song that […]

Not Many Stranger Stories

Posted March 30, 2010 By LifeIsChange

I started this month thinking I would have a good supply of stories about strangers, but it didn’t really go that way.  In the last week, I’ve seen even fewer strangers than usual, because my car has been in the shop and I’ve been catching rides with my dad, who works close to where I […]

Emily Is A Fan of Veggies . . . and Powdered Sugar?!?

Posted June 3, 2011 By LifeIsChange

I know.  Weird, huh? I first discovered that she liked vegetables when I was making dinner one  evening several years ago and I dropped a piece of broccoli.  She scarfed it up before I could pick it up.  Over the next few years, I would occasionally either offer her different veggies or drop something and […]

Muskrat Love

Posted June 20, 2011 By LifeIsChange

This morning, for some reason I don’t actually understand, I had the song “Muskrat Love” stuck in my head for several hours.  Thinking about the lyrics*, I began to see this little scene in my head: A crime has been committed in Muskrat Land.  Sam and Suzie are being questioned at the local police station […]

Cockadoodle Doo-What?

Posted August 20, 2011 By LifeIsChange

Note: The content of this post might be a bit “adult” for sensitive readers. I have about a hundred things I’ve been wanting to blog about lately, but life is happening at a faster pace than I’m used to.  I should be close to caught up soon, and I promise to catch up here as well, […]

Coulda Been A Great Product Idea

Posted October 31, 2014 By LifeIsChange

So, 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 […]

Quaker Quackers

Posted November 4, 2014 By LifeIsChange

Sometimes I get ideas for products or businesses that I wish someone would invent/produce/create. Sometimes other people laugh when they hear my ideas because they think I’m joking. Sometimes I am, but on the other hand, hey, I still wish someone would make them happen. Here’s one: Quaker Quackers: I think the Quaker company (oatmeal […]
