snapshots of an idle mind

i wonder


how some people can smell so bad and yet seem never to notice.


why i love the leafs so much when they’re sooo bad these days.


what will happen to the planet when we’ve sucked all the oil out of it… and i don’t just mean with fuel. i just can’t imagine that nature made all that lube and stuck it down there for no reason… it just seems wrong somehow.

so, if you have no more lube between the rocks what happens when they try to slide?

seems to me the shakes will get bigger.

but i’m not a geologist, anyone else?


why we think pumping water that sells for two dollars a litre into the ground to replace oil that sells (refined!) for one is good business practices.


if i can sustain this 6:30 am client on wednesday mornings.

client that i love, that is my longest running client and the first one who ever paid me full price for an hour.


when i became someone who cared about the state of her house.

although the answer seems to be ‘when she got a house worth caring about.’


when i’m getting my next pedicure.

speaking of; here you go terry:





nat’s toes:


my toes





why folks would rather focus on their misery and pain than their happiness and freedoms.


why some people take so much pleasure in hurting others.


why the above two are so often the same person.


why it’s often so much easer to hear the spitefulness hurled at you by those who dislike you than the kindness lavished upon you by your loved ones.


why i had a weird dream about my car last night…


and why i remembered it.


why the posts i am often most proud of will regularly engender the fewest comments…


why rainy grey days (IN MODERATION!) are so awesome…


why i’m not currently napping…



  1. thought-provoking post. thank you! glad i tag surfed and found it.

    i especially like the part about posts and comments–i know people are reading certain posts, but i have no idea what they thought about it. i do get some responses, and seeing that i get pingbacks from links posted in other blogs to my entries, but aside from “I found a wonderful post you might like to read,” I don’t know what they think–like what they liked so much about what i wrote.

    speaking of napping–sounds like a good idea!

  2. Yaay good memories of pedicures! And a good reminder I really need to lose weight. Pfft. :)

    Yeah…I think of that stuff often…as you know.

  4. “why folks would rather focus on their misery and pain than their happiness and freedoms.”

  6. I wonder why people gripe about rainy and snowy days. They’re unavoidable. Like you say, in moderation you have to take the drizzly days in stride and enjoy them.

  7. maralorelei: i wish that you had left a link to your blog. welcome to my little place.

    i know what you mean. i love that they like it but some nice feedback would be nice. maybe i should do a poll.

    was your nap as lovely as mine?

    nat: dude, that was a really nice day you know that? and yes, i know your brain is all wondery cause i saw it in action.

    as for your weight, small steps dude… just start the walk.

    goldenapples: that seems a lot like spam to me since you haven’t said a word yet.


    terry: yah me too. only wish it was easier huh?

    kathi: thanks, and bonus nat pictures.

    rainy days are awesome :)

    othercat: me too, i love them actually. just not EVERY day :)

  8. Page is updated now! What do you think of the answer?

    “why folks would rather focus on their misery and pain than their happiness and freedoms.” That kind of negative thinking bear nothing more than more negativity.

  9. Hmmm–I thought links were automatic on WordPress comments, but here is a direct link to blog. I just did an interesting little entry on a YouTube posted video on “The F-Word” and critiqued it for an American English Grammar class. I can just imagine what kind of comments I will get on that post, despite the fact that I posted a warning label in the title and in the text. Oh well. People will always find something to be offended about.

    Oh, yes–my nap was quite lovely–thanks for asking! And another one I had yesterday got me to a class I thought I felt too lousy to make. Naps rock!
