Image result for dancing in the rain with one sock

Today I spent 5 minutes searching under my bed for the socks, that I thought I had to wear when I went to bed last night. I am not really sure how I do it, but I think I pull them off during the night, and then somehow the poor socks fly through the bedroom, and end up at places no sock should be. Continue reading

Oprah for President

Oprah Winfrey gave a well-written acceptance speech at the Golden Globe, and the next day some people speculated she might run for President in 2020.

Are you fricking kidding me? There goes one of my New Years resolutions. What is wrong with this nation? She is a talk show host, an actress, a business woman. She is as much a politician as the current reality TV star, who occupies the White House right now.

Our obsession with celebrities is frightening.  HELP ME Stephen!

Goodness what is next?

 

Life’s Knitting Lessons

“Dear designer of questionable intent,

Please, send me a photo of yourself wearing the knitted pants that you designed. It’s not that I don’t believe that there is anyone out there thin enough to wear horizontally stripped trousers knitted from chunky wool, it’s just that I would like to know whether you are deliberately cruel or whether you are the ONE woman these would look really great on.”

The Cleaning Fairy and the Drill Sergeant – Part III

Image result for cleaning fairy

Cleaning fairy #3 was a Russian lady, who came from a country which belonged to Russia in the past and now they don’t speak Russian anymore -turned out she didn’t speak much English either. Needless to say, we had some communication problems. She knocked on my door and introduced herself as HOUSECLEANING, what made me feel like a guest in a luxury hotel. “You show me chemicals,” she demanded, and the way she talked to me scared me a bit.

2017, the Year America Fell Into the Upside Down

A very thought-provoking post from a blogger who I just found (or did he find me?) A post that is not just well written but also gave me a whirlwind of emotions. Judge for yourself, please!

Watching the Wheels

December 29, 2017

How is it possible to sum up a year like the 2017, the first year of the unimaginable Trump presidency, when alternative facts became accepted reality and actual facts were branded “fake news”? It’s been hard to believe any of it has been real. Americans seem to either embrace this pathological liar as their perfect savior (quite literally, there is nothing this man could do to lose their support) or are just too tired to fact-check him anymore to care. It started to feel like America’s greatness was fading in the rearview mirror, replaced by a kleptocratic idiocracy, populated by a mindless flock who would make George Orwell slit his goddamn wrists. The war on the truth was gleefully embraced by his cult-like followers and it felt like the slippery slope to fascism just had truckload after truckload of lube dumped on it. Then a fellow sexual…

Hit by an Angel

 

Image result for my life shared

My husband, the wonderful man by my side, who is no longer allowed to buy pictures or art without my supervision, outdid himself. Somehow he sneaked out and bought another picture. Where does he find them you ask? In an art Galerie? In a store? No, my husband finds his art bargains in a resale shop or at estate sales -bless his little heart.  Continue reading

Hidden Leftovers

Image result for beer gif

Years ago I decided that our refrigerator was just too cluttered, and I asked Santa if he could bring my husband a man-cave fridge. A small icebox, just for beer and water – a dream come true during football season. It was a present for both of us, I got more room in the fridge, and he got his long talked about beer-fridge.  Continue reading
