Fibe tv is ridiculous

This new Fibe tv thingy we bundled with internet service is ridiculous. I mean, there are thousands of channels (free for two months, then we’ll go back to the basic package). So now if I want to watch any given channel I have to consult a freaking spreadsheet. Example: Food Network is channel 1603… I gotta type in four digits for crying out loud!

TMI Monday

Disclaimer: If you’re a delicate flower or easily offended I recommend you stop reading now. Also, I am neither tipsy (yet) nor crazy (debatable). You have been warned. 🙃

I made a MAJOR decision today. Because the time has come and I can’t take it anymore.

I’ve mentioned my mantra before on this blog, right?

If not now, when?

Today is the day. Today is now.

Tracking apps: who is using them and are they any good?

I recently downloaded an app to track my cycles. I used to do this on a small paper calendar but I like the convenience of the app in my phone.

Here’s the part I enjoy the most:

Logging my moods.

But me being me I have complaints about this. 😛

Emerging from mid-life invisibility

Years ago something apparently insignificant happened to me. Since I’ve been thinking about it on and off for years, perhaps it wasn’t so insignificant after all.

I have some thoughts.

I am, after all, a writer and this is a blog and I like to hurl words about my thoughts out into the internet. 🙂

One step at a time

While doing some banking online and watching Jamie Oliver on tv, I was kind of irked that the interrupting commercial break advertised Kentucky Fried Chicken. Of all the fast food/fried chicken places, this one is probably the worst one. ICK. (And I like fried chicken but not with abused, factory raised poultry.)

Ironically, Jamie was cooking chicken. Fresh, organic, farm-raised, 20-minute chicken. Looked much better than the commercial, if you ask me.

This was the second thing that irked me today, the commercial. The first thing was booger kid on Cynthia’s blog. OMG I’m still shuddering at the gif in my head. 😛

(THANKS, friend.) 🙂

What comes down must go up: moody blues

Yesterday was a horrible day. Just plain horrible and it got worse as the day progressed. I lost some crucial things I needed, including debit cards and health insurance (they turned up eventually) and ultimately I ended up making the family dinner, and went to bed at 6.

6 pm.

So sue me.

How to improve a bad mood: type a blog post and hit publish

This morning I got attacked by a bird if you’re wondering how my day is going so far.

GenXers, digital technology and the authenticity of blogging friendships

I am interrupting my vacation memories reporting to bring you some other thoughts percolating through my head. 🙂

There are people in my life who consider internet friends not real.

Most ‘real’ people in my life consider all things social media ‘fake’. Essentially, they consider a person I ‘met’ through a blog or social media as ‘not a real friend’ and thereby ‘fake’.

As if meeting in physical life is a prerequisite to authentic friendship.

I am not one of those people.

Are you?
