Spring Cleaning Done Sprung Me!

Spring cleaning done “sprung” me in places I didn’t even know were parts of me!   Between playing pickle ball since October three days a week for at least two hours every time and playing wally ball every weekend for two hours at a time for the past month, I figured I was pretty well-exercised…

Lousy at Self-Promotion

self-promotion

I’m lousy at self-promotion, which is weird because as a copywriter my job is to promote clients.   I spend so much time promoting other people’s products or services that I forget to promote my own!   That’s nuts!   I’m like the auto mechanic who’s car doesn’t run. I know how to fix it,…

Changing Banks is a PITA–Nerve-Wracking!

Changing banks is a nerve-wracking pain-in-the-arse process.   In my case, it isn’t just a matter of closing accounts at one bank (Heritage), getting a cashier’s check, driving it over, and opening new accounts at the credit union (BECU).   It’s a matter of informing numerous auto-deposit and auto-withdrawal entities of the switch and giving…

YAY! Bernie is IN!

Bernie Sanders has entered the race to become the next President of the United States.   HALLELUJAH!!!   My world has turned around. I no longer feel depressed. I am fired up and ready to go!   I no longer feel the despair I’ve felt since he bowed out last time.  Although I voted for…

SO SICK OF THE HATE

I am  SO SICK of the HATE that is being openly-spewed, supported, and even celebrated these days.   https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2019/02/game-jesus-trump-hitler-kill-lgbtq-people-now-available-online/?utm_source=LGBTQ+Nation+Subscribers&utm_campaign=c40d051d75-20190217_LGBTQ_Weekly_Newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_c4eab596bd-c40d051d75-430573761   How can something this VILE even be conceived, let alone coded and created?   Called “Jesus Strikes Back” (a blasphemy of epic proportions, if ever there was one), game manufacturers have listed this as a…

Winter and Summertime Sports: I’m ALL IN!

My sister clued me in to two sports she has been playing for close to a year now: pickle ball and wally ball.   She has been playing  several days a week (four days out of seven, two to three hours at a time) and gets lots of exercise because she LOVES them.   So…

Writing Copy and Content MOSTLY

I’ve been so busy writing copy and content for clients for the past week or so that I haven’t had time to write my own blogs.   I’m not complaining!   It’s terrific that I’ve had work because I’ve just had an extra expense pop up that I wasn’t expecting — to the tune of…

Bernie Sanders Has EARNED My Loyalty

Now that it’s certain Bernie Sanders will declare himself a candidate for POTUS in 2020, I see Democrats hauling out the dirty laundry from the 2016 election cycle, bemoaning the “fact” (ha ha ha ha ha) that he stole the election out from under poor unprotected Hillary Clinton, therefore saddling us with Trump.   Has…

YOAST SEO’s Readability Score is a Laugh Riot

There’s an internal “checklist” within Yoast SEO that gives every blog I write a “Readability Score.”   It’s lame.   Really lame.   It tells me my blog posts aren’t very readable.  I commonly get a red readability score. Red is bad!   Excuse me?   This is because I write sentences that are  frequently…

After Trump…

Beyond Trump (which–please, voters!–will be in 2020) there will be challenges galore, but they will appear more manageable because formerly-complacent voters are complacent no more, and because there are more of us than there are of racist, sexist, misogynistic, xenophobic, homophobic Trumpsters–thank God!   There are also a lot more women and other under-represented people…
