My house is a shrine to single socks. For some reason, it’s the expensive running socks that seem to get separated from one another. Never the cheap-o, ten-per-pack knock-around-the-house socks. Only the nice, padded ones. Eventually, the missing sock does (usually) turn up, stuck to something else, courtesy of static cling. I had one sock,Continue reading “Land Of Lost Running Socks And Planning The Next Season (!)”

The Only Voice In My Head Is My Own…And We Argue
I’ve been working from home for 14 months, and I’ll admit this much: I hated it in the beginning. I am a child of the office age, not the technology age. I started working in the late seventies; we had clunky word processors masquerading as computers, but mostly it was pens, notepads and phones (push-buttonContinue reading “The Only Voice In My Head Is My Own…And We Argue”

And despite my best efforts to dislike the thing, I am attached to it. Bad pun, and it won’t be the last oneContinue reading “I Got A Digital Babysitter For The Holidays”
Say Goodbye To My Little Friend…RIP Landline
I was struck by lightning this week. No, not in the form of a great idea or mental breakthrough. I mean the literal kind. A bolt from the sky that hit my backyard and traveled into my house kind of lightning. This kind of strike, called a side flash, blew an electrical plate off theContinue reading “Say Goodbye To My Little Friend…RIP Landline”
“Sorry, Our Computers Are Down Right Now…”
Oh, for the days when we had to function with a whole lot less technology. I am trying to re-book a flight out West to see family (they’ve rejected a visit from me for this year, thanks to COVID-19) and doing it online has been miserable. So much for “managing your miles” the easy way.Continue reading ““Sorry, Our Computers Are Down Right Now…””
