ummmm....... in shiny things

I keep trying to make an entry, especially after I got so fired up by writing more in the last few weeks than I have in the past year or so, but. I just stare at the blank page and then wander aw...

greetings from Bedlam in shiny things

It is just remarkably difficult getting used to being back on campus again after working remotely since March of 2020. The noise alone is driving me completely over the edge. ( And OMG, as I was ...


I can’t! But look at me, making two entries in five days! We’re back at work now, waaaaahhhh. It’s not unbearable, but I sure do hate having to get up an hour earlier than I did when working remo...

Edna? Edna who??? in shiny things

I cannot believe I haven’t made an entry in a year and three months. Now I don’t even know where to start!! Amusingly I am sitting in my office for the first time in… a year and four months. So, ...


Swiped from Search Results. Very timely. Well, it was timely when I started it on April 8. Okay, still timely since nothing at all has changed since April 8. Are you an Essential worker? I am no...

Life in Lockdown in shiny things

Well, we aren’t really locked down, although our state - NC- is under a 30-day Stay At Home order as of yesterday at 5:00. This means pretty much what we were already doing, although now gatherin...


Yikes - this just shows how fragile our lifestyle is, I guess, and how quickly we can be catapulted into a bizarre new world of quarantines and social isolation and shortages and rationing etc et...

Yikes in shiny things

It’s got to be a new Prosebox Avoidance Record for me - I haven’t made an entry since October 20. Well, other than one with notes for things to make an entry about. Like “importance of having pho...

Current-ishes in shiny things

I’ve been trying to make an entry for AGES, to no avail - but it’s slow at work, and I’ve got time to do it, so no more avoiding. And as I have a total mishmash of topics, a Currents it is. Well,...


Well, maybe mid-20th century, since contact lenses became available to the masses in the 1950s-60s, although Wikipedia tells me that Leonardo da Vinci actually introduced the idea in 1508. His pr...


… to make an entry. And this is a really really REALLY random survey. I have also cut out approximately 452,640 questions. You’re welcome! Do your jeans have rips, tears, and holes in them? No, a...

Phillip in shiny things

First, thanks for all the kind notes about my dad -it’s still hard to believe, and I keep thinking I need to call him. But three weeks ago we found ourselves with a happy addition to the family, ...

Sad news in shiny things

Ages ago I wrote about my dad having a mild stroke at the end of January, while simultaneously having the flu, then coming down with bronchitis on top of that and being in the Veteran’s Home for ...


Suddenly I have nothing pressing to do, and since I had to take lunch very very early this morning, this day seems endless, so… it’s Current Time! (It’s also DAYS later now, and only two “current...


I am at work, but I am done. Done done done. Done with this day, done with this week, done with last week too. It has just been GRUELING. It’s early registration, so that’s to be expected, but, O...


Massive apologies for clogging up everyone’s Unread Bookmarks with 42,501 entries about a trip to England I took 9 1/2 years ago!!! I am lucky lucky lucky enough to have made three trips since th...


OMG I’m making more than one entry in a six month time frame! This is directly due to being in a massively slow period at work, which is quite unusual. Yes, I do realize work is not for writing/r...

Parental Woes in shiny things

It’s been a very stressful winter as far as our parents are concerned. Mine, Baker B’s, and Kim’s. Baker B’s mom fell for the twenty-zillionth time in mid-January, thought she was okay and wouldn...

Philly trip in shiny things

SO, I wrote this big long entry on Friday about my recent trip to Philadelphia for a work related conference, and by “wrote” I mean I rambled and digressed and went on ten gazillion tangents, as ...

*Two months?!?!?* in shiny things

How have I gone two months without showing up here at all, let alone making an entry?? And I was so determined to start writing regularly again. Although I suppose an entry every two months could...


This is what I started to do on my last, ages-ago entry, before getting derailed by a rant about Hurricane Florence cancelling my only vacation plans for the entire year waaaahhhhh!!! And as an u...

Not a survey in shiny things

Well, I’d started a survey stolen from Marg, since that’s about the only way to get me to make an entry these days, but after going on and on and on for one question, I decided maybe I better jus...


Well of course I haven’t made an entry since I was frantically searching for pumps to wear to Cousin E’s daughter’s wedding, despite my repeated vows that I’ll start writing regularly again. Oh,...


(I actually wrote this on OD July 1… and forgot to post it here!! I’ve decided it’s easier to post there first if I have pictures. Mostly because Flickr, where I keep my photos, is such a massive...
