FFS, Internet!

I write these little letters to the Internet, albeit they are few and far-between, mostly as humour. Unfortunately, I’m not in a very humorous mood regarding the Internet lately. Maybe it’s my age. Maybe it’s how long I’ve haunted the hallow halls of social media. I don’t really believe that people are any more or…

Internet, we need to talk

Don’t worry, I’m not breaking up with you… at least not yet. Since I’m classically not proficient at relationships in general, that would be a long, drawn out process that may take more energy than I have. Then again, talking this out might be exhausting as well. It’s not your fault. You’re just doing your…

The One with the Unlucky Boy

In the sleepy town of Appleton, a young loner follows a stray cat onto the road and is struck by a car. A leg is shattered, a summer is ruined, and the troubled life of Billy Brahm goes from bad… to cursed. “When things are good, it is because we remember a time when they…

Double standards and our celebrities

As humans, we seem to have a tendency to, sometimes in our minds and sometimes overtly, reject things that are different than ourselves. To that end, I should admit that I avoided Duck Dynasty for what must surely be that reason. I watched an episode very recently and I have to admit I laughed. A lot….

Internet, I can’t live without you

Thank you, Internet, for teaching me patience and how to be a better listener through Social Media. Were it not for all the drama and constant complaining on Facebook, I might never have learned that anyone can be a social worker – even me. I can also be a chef, a photographer and a doctor…

Parade – the musical

Don’t think of this as a review because, as I’ve pointed out, I’m not really a reviewer. Think of it as the words of a person who went to a show and wants to tell you how she enjoyed it in case you are looking for something to do over the next week or so….

Virtual Identity Crisis

It’s funny how blogging is something I very much want to do and yet, I have the hardest time just churning out something interesting for people to read. I feel very disconnected from my blog. I have attempted reviews. I have attempted covering minor news stories. I have even attempted to work within the confines…

Personal Responsibility

Is it lost on our kids? Today I read a meme on Facebook. It was a cartoon showing Wile E. Coyote strapping himself to a rocket and lighting a wick to blast himself off, undoubtedly in pursuit of the Road Runner. The insinuation is bad enough even without the comments that followed which included parents…

Why do I like bloggers?

I love bloggers because they will talk about anything. This works out well for me because I will read about pretty much ANYTHING. I love to get to know people. I think it’s fantastic to get to know the world from anybody’s point of view and not always just from the point of view of…
