What’s the point?

I was going to upload another pattern today, but I’m too depressed. This week’s headlines are just too much. Even though it’s just more of the same, it’s just TOO MUCH. I am so sick of people being murdered because of their skin color or their religion or their sexual orientation or their gender identity …

Holiday shipping, a coupon and stuff

Gift Certificate

I don’t know how it got to be December 8 already. I’m still trying to figure out how it got to be 2010. Ok, I understand it logically. Time passes. But it still seems really really weird to me that something that happened in 1990 happened 20 years ago. But I digress. If you’re thinking …

Punk pin cushion on wheels

So.  I did something I haven’t done for about three years.  Something I wasn’t sure I’d ever do again. I rode my bike. Certainly no big deal to many people, but for me?  I had to really think long and hard about it. I used to ride my bike everywhere, year round.  I even rode …

Wow, a new year already, huh?

I’ve actually been meaning to write for a couple of weeks, but I’ve been so busy doing stuff, I haven’t had time to write about it.  Some people are able to make time for both, and I envy them, but my brain doesn’t seem to be constructed that way.  And so, of course, the more …

In the interest of fairness

I’m sure you’re all sick to death of my blathering on and on about Walgreen’s, but in the interest of fairness, I feel I should present the conclusion to the tale.  Thursday I emailed the University benefits office with a brief description of what happened.  Yes, it was brief.  No, really. Friday the benefits contact …

Finally…

I went to my PO box today and it finally contained the package I’ve been waiting for.  I opened it while I was waiting for the driver to come back to open the bus doors.  No mean feat.  They said “tamper evident,” true, but it took me a minute to figure out how to open …

Nope.

I went to check my PO box again today.  Still no package.  But hey, why would there be, just because they said to allow two weeks, and it’s been over three now?  Sure, they said they mailed it last Wednesday, but I’m thinking now, that probably meant they processed it to go out for mailing, …

In which I don’t like Walgreen’s very much.

Since I moved my housing costs are a bit higher, so I’ve been looking for more ways to save money.  I’ve been able to grow some of my own food this summer, so that’s been good, and buying more of my clothes at the thrift shop has saved me a lot of money.  The University …

How to ride a bus

Ridership on the bus is way up now that gas prices are over $4.00/gallon.  I think it’s great that more people are looking at alternatives to driving.  But since a lot of riders are new to the bus, I thought I’d write a bit about bus culture and how not to offend everyone else on …

Oh yeah, the other thing…

I remembered the other thing I was trying to say in my last post (see, I told you my brain wasn’t working).  Once I realized that my depression was often part of a migraine, that was encouraging because it meant the depression would go away in a few days.  Yeah, it sucked while it was …
