So, as I was saying…

Okay, no. I wasn’t actually saying anything. But I was thinking it. No big mystery. All of my thoughts play on repeat… ♥

Well, it was good while it lasted…

Last night I had the most unsatisfying dream ever. 😐 I dreamt that somebody loved me. And even though we were right in front of each other, talking with each other, laughing and just hanging out having the time of our lives… there was still nowhere for us to go to be alone together. Let…

A good man is hard to find…

There are two men with whom I have recently spent a bit of time communicating. Just by chance. Meaning: I did not proactively pursue them of my own accord. They just both individually discovered my existence and pounced on me. At least, that’s what it has felt like. I met both of them through random…

You are forewarned…

… there are (apparently) cameras everywhere! Little did I know when I registered for this digital training session yesterday — which I attended at work today — that the room would be photographed and tweeted out to the world. But here’s a question… … do you see me? 🙂  

Well… this turned out to be interesting…

I am now about 2-1/2 weeks into my Hitchcock movie class (hitchcock50.tcm.com) and, since we’re not discussing or watching all of his movies — and some of them are showing at times that aren’t quite convenient for me — I have been watching a few online. Last night, I watched Rebecca. I’d heard the name…

I’m back in college again…

… Well, sort of. I am studying this: … via TCM’s collaboration with Ball State University and the Canvas Network. You can get details about the course here. If I manage to score above 70% on all the quizzes, I will get a certificate at the end. Sounds like fun… I think. The program just…

Shuffling through the decades, past and present…

The ballet company’s final show of the season is coming up this weekend. It’s called “Decades On Shuffle” and features dances choreographed to music from the ’20s-today. (In case you’re wondering, I’m not in the show. Just working backstage.) Last week, I handed over the final design files to the printer to produce the show…

Hidden messages…

iHeart sent me this email today: Umm, yes. Something heavy fell on me. Metaphorically speaking. 😐 In related news… someone made me laugh about something yesterday… and for a moment I thought it was you… and when I realized it wasn’t you, I wished it was. I miss it being you. Umm, let’s see…. This…

The melody of our lost tree lingers on…

Our tree has been gone for 2 years now. Time flies, I guess. She still insists on posing with it. How we lost our tree. We (obviously) still need to plant a new one. PS: I know she looks tall, but she’s still shorter than me. Musical accompaniment…

The Doll Shop is now closed…

So… good news: I didn’t fall down during the “Doll Shop” ballet shows or the dress rehearsal. But I *was* sick for the performances (the entire weekend + today, etc.). The kind of sick where you’re coughing and sneezing and achy and exhausted and your ears are clogged, which makes the room spin sometimes. Yes,…

Miscellaneous new thoughts…

Well, it’s May. Are you wondering how my spring garden is growing this year? Didn’t think so. But I’ll tell you anyway. Carrots. I’ve got carrots. I’ve got lots and lots of carrots. Well, the beginnings of carrots anyway. And still the endless green onions that survived the winter and a five-day deluge of rain…

Miscellaneous old thoughts…

Sometimes… certain relatively unremarkable (and now old) “things” cross my mind. I am going to share 3 of them with you now in hopes that they will remove themselves from my archival brain files. This particular assortment has to do with former workplace situations… and wearing black. This is a long and random post. You…

Songs that put me in “a mood”…

… as in the kind of mood where I think I am somewhere else — such as the place I may have been when I first heard the song… For instance: 7th grade on the bus ride to school… or riding in the car with my mom on the way to dance class… or skating…

Back-to-Back to “The Doll Shop”…

So, there have been a few more Patron dance rehearsals in the past week or so. At the second rehearsal, the choreographer changed the choreography. Now, instead of crashing into each other every five seconds trying to remember what comes next, we rotate around each other here, there, and everywhere… Which is why I am…

I can run, but I cannot hide…

So, I was at Walmart the other day… buying a can of white spray paint. As I was checking out at the cash register, Stray Cat Strut came on. So, of course, I started singing the lyrics to myself… “Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh….” By the time I paid and walked out of the store, I…
