Muskrat Love

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 […]

Rough Day

So, I went to the allergist this morning, and the good news is that I’m not allergic to any of the things they tested me for.  I don’t remember the whole list, but it included cats, dogs, milk, wheat, rice, dust mites, and some grasses and trees; I think Oak and Poplar were on that […]

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

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 […]

Connections With Those We’ve Never Met

So, I decided to participate in NaBloPoMo for June.  It seems like a good month for it, as far as my work schedule and time availability.  The theme for June is “Fan”.  I’m not sure I’ll stay on theme all month, but it will be fun to try.  Thinking of the word “fan”, though, reminded […]

Not Many Stranger Stories

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 […]

Things That Are Strange

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 […]

Strange(r) Lolcats

I’m not feeling so well today and words aren’t coming very easily, but in a diligent effort to remain on topic, I give you, for your humor-pleasure, (drumroll . . . ) Strange(r) Lolcats: You’re welcome. –

Seeing Myself As A Stranger

My therapist and I talked some more about the body image / self image thing when I saw her on the first.  One of the things we talked about was some professional photos that SS and I had taken in December (I’d emailed copies to her).  She asked me how I feel when I look […]

The Strange Voice In The Wall

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 […]

Strange Horoscope

I don’t read my horoscope very often, especially the ones that show up on just about every home page option list that only take the sun sign into account.  I mean, come on, every Gemini out there is not going to have the exact same kind of day. But today, as I was revamping my […]
