Stray thought…if you come here

Stray thought…if you come here tomorrow hoping for more Dear frykitty stuff, it won’t be there. Nope, nope, nope. Why? Because tomorrow is Saturday. I haven’t yet decided if I’m going to go daily or weekly (probably daily for a while), but one thing I know for sure is that daily=weekday. That gives me the weekend to write. And that… (more…)

Note to new readers: it's

Note to new readers: it’s totally okay to write me. Of course, you are under no obligation to do so. I’m just putting this up because I know when I visit a website for the first time, and I see something I like, I often want to communicate with the creator. But I rarely do it.

Somebody explain this behavior to me: I get a headache at 8:00 am, and it gets steadily worse. But I continue to work until my eyes start to tear up and don’t get any pain-killer in me until NEARLY 2:00PM!!! What the hell is up with that? Do I think I’m being macho? AUGH!

I mean, that’s pretty sad when your own design gives you pain. I know I still have pockets of teensy fonts around here…I may or may… (more…)

And our state fair is cancelling a brewing competition? Our local papers run regular columns on micro-brews. We are brewing bananas. This is like cancelling the rain.

I've decided there's not enough

I’ve decided there’s not enough nudity in my life. My nudity, that is. I’m not a big bare-it-all person, but since I got a roommate, I have clothes on almost all the time, and that sucks. As soon as the roommate is gone nakedness will reign! Count your blessings. I’m not getting a webcam.
