Mojo and Me

Mojo and Me

I learned the name of the rooster's mojo but I prefer calling it the rooster anyway because calling it by its name implies some form of relationship. I suppose in a way we do have an adversarial relationship he wants to attack me and I want to avoid being attacked. He doesn't seem to get that I don't attack him. I haven't. I will defend myself...

Sundaying

Sundaying

I like the idea if Sunday, even if it isn't actually Sunday. I often post on my Facebook wall that "I am Sundaying"  as an expression of laziness. Perhaps laziness isn't the right word. When done right,  a Sunday isn't about being lazy so much as just setting aside a day to not do the stuff you do the rest of the week. For those of you that work...

Speaking your Chats

Speaking your Chats

A funny thing happened to me recently when I was involved in a text conversation with a friend of mine. I was laying in bed, chatting with a friend using Google Hangouts on my cell phone. At some point it occurred to me the typing on the cell phone was a little tedious, but I didn't have a full keyboard or computer near the bed at that moment, so...

People of the Yard Sale

People of the Yard Sale

I found myself at a charity yard sale this weekend with time to spare. Usually I don't pay too much attention to weekend sales in yards and driveways. They've never held much interest for me although I do know, for many people, they're a weekend highlight. I can breeze through a yard sale in under 3 minutes usually. I I just don't need to spend...
