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 […]

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 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 […]

If It Acts Like A Child And Feels Like A Child . . .

Posted July 8, 2009 By LifeIsChange

The dreams came in like needy children, tugging at my sleeve I said, “I have no way of feeding you, so leave”. Prince of Darkness – Indigo Girls Hmmm.  Well. Ater I wrote and then re-read yesterday’s entry about food-addiction-related cravings, I was struck with how obvious it seemed. All the pondering I’ve done about […]

Boots

Ah, music.  How just the sound of a song can take you back to a particular time and place. Yesterday, SS and I were talking about . . . something . . . and it reminded her of the song, These Boots Are Made For Walkin’, and I started to sing the song.  I could hear […]

I Channeled Mrs. Puff

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 […]

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.  […]

The Strange Voice In The Wall

Posted March 11, 2010 By LifeIsChange

I said to Sister, this evening, on the phone, that it hasn’t been quite as easy as I’d expected to think of a blog post idea about a stranger or something strange, every day, for an entire month. She said, “You could write about the strange voice in the wall where I work.” Sister and […]

NaNoWriMo Number Seven, and Tools

Posted November 30, 2010 By LifeIsChange

Yay!!  Win number three, and one day early, no less!  I’m kind of amazed, actually, especially since there must have been a dozen times during the month that I decided to quit.  Some of those times, I was only going to quit this year’s NaNo, and other times, I was going to quit writing altogether, […]

NaNoNoGo . . . and . . . We Do!

Posted November 16, 2011 By LifeIsChange

Well, I had intended to write something this November, even though I knew I wouldn’t be officially participating in NaNoWriMo, but as it turned out, I didn’t even do my modified not-really NaNo version.  I’m ok with that, though, and I realize now that it wasn’t a very realistic undertaking, with everything else that we’ve […]

Sisters Dictionary

Posted April 29, 2013 By LifeIsChange

Sister and I have always enjoyed making up new words. This is today’s contribution to the Sisters Dictionary: cat-ass-trophy: The annoying condition that causes one’s ass to think it’s a cat and must bat everything in one’s vicinity until it falls down Yep. –
