Confession Thursday

  1. Confession I can’t ever keep Star Trek and Star Wars straight. I know the differences between them, for sure. But I confuse the names all the time.
  2. While at Star Wars recently, I noticed something interesting about the previews. They were either about death, destruction, and the horrors of humanity, or they were about upcoming animated movies aimed at kids. I think I’ll stick to the kid movies.
  3. I don’t often wear my nails long. They kind of creep me out when they’re long. Anyway, the minute one of them breaks, all of them go. I definitely can’t stand one short one when the rest are long. Throws the symmetry right off!
  4. Given that I’m not very tall, I have crazy long legs. It’s getting increasingly harder to find pants that are long enough. Most pants make me look like I’m waiting for a flood.
  5. I don’t like wearing business attire. I feel like there’s almost no way slacks/dress pants are flattering on any woman.

Confession Thursday

Confession Yes, a day late…

  1. Ever work with people who just can’t see the good in anything? Who always find the negativity and focus on that? Man, it’s so hard for me to keep my cool in those situations and not call them out on their crappy attitude. And it’s so hard to understand how they don’t get that critique and criticism is always best served with a healthy dose of praise, compliment, and gratitude.
  2. I’ve never considered myself a nag. Come to think of it, I’ve never been called one either. I was thinking about it this morning when it dawned on me why nagging doesn’t work. Rather than hearing the actual need of the nagger, the nagged is focused on the fact that they’re being nagged. Follow that? Seems to me that if you really want someone to do something or change a process/behavior, a constructive conversation where they don’t feel like they’re being treated like a child and devalued is likely the best approach.
  3. I’m headed to the beach next week and the only books I’m packing are all related to business and self improvement. Lame, you say? Here’s my perspective: I have limited time to read, so I should be putting something good and worthwhile that will better me and my life in my noggin.
  4. It’s possible there is no greater killer of motivation for me than a late Friday afternoon before a week-long vacation. My brain is utter mush at that point.
  5. I hate to fly. Not because I’m afraid the plane will fall out of the sky or anything like that. But because there’s a good chance that I’ll be a nanosecond away from vomiting on at least one, if not several, occasions during the flight. The conversation in my head for most of the flight is, “Don’t vomit. No need to do that. Nice deep breaths. Just keep it all in there.”

Confession Thursday

  1. Confession I consider myself to be a responsible person, which I think is a good thing because I regularly find myself in situations where things could go badly if I weren’t so. You know, one customer service person tells you one thing and you make a note to confirm that later only to be told something else entirely by another person. That sort of annoying thing. I think life must be much harder for irresponsible people.
  2. I’ve been trying to say “thank you” instead of “thanks” lately. Something about “thanks” just seems trite and not fully representative of my appreciation.
  3. I’m so tired of hearing about Caitlyn Jenner I could cry. Seriously, do we have nothing better to ponder in society right now than a person’s choice about their own body and identity?
  4. Summer just got here and it already feels like it’s moving too fast. I looked at my calendar the other day and things are already booked out into August. That makes me both excited and a tad bummed out.
  5. I leave for a trip I earned with AdvoCare to Aruba in 10 days. I’m so super pumped I can barely stand it!

Confession Thursday

  1. Confession When I go too long between hair cuts, I start to fantasize about shaving my head. I’ve done some investigating and it seems like I have a good cranium for that. No weird lumps or anything. Not that I’d ever do it, but it’s reassuring to know it might not be totally terrifying under there.
  2. I haven’t danced in months because of some damage I did to one of my feet. For a while I kind of appreciated the break. Now I just miss it. I think it’ll all come back to me pretty quickly, but I do wonder…
  3. I saw the new Mad Max last weekend and I guarantee I spent most of the movie with a look of utter confusion on my face. Seriously, one of the strangest movies ever. But I still liked it! The former 4-wheeler in me was just as pumped up about some of the vehicles on the screen as the teenage boys in there. (I think my friend and I were two of 10 women in a packed theater.)
  4. Sometimes music has a bigger presence in my life. Like the words to songs I’ve listened to a million times suddenly take on a whole new meaning. I love that.
  5. I just had a four day weekend last week. This weekend will be a three day weekend. Next weekend, I’ll have another four day weekend. This is how life should always be.

Confession Thursday

  1. Confession I dig a beard on a guy. However, when your beard is wider than your ears, that’s not hot. That’s just sheer laziness. Oh, and keep the crumbs out of there, too. Ew.
  2. My niece Farrah likes to talk on the phone. Hearing her say, “Hi Auntie!” just warms my heart. For awhile, she called me Annie Annie, now it’s just Auntie. I wonder what she’ll decide to stick with…
  3. It’s been really, really cold here in Colorado this week. I hope this isn’t an indication of the kind of winter we’re going to have because, damn!
  4. Speaking of cold, I am enjoying pulling out my sweaters, boots, scarves, etc. I guess that’s the silver lining to below zero temps!
  5. I’m getting my hair cut again on Saturday and I’m going even shorter! Nothing too, too crazy. And hey, it’s hair. If I don’t like it, it’ll grow back. Truly though, I saw this the other day and it pretty much explains everything:
  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
