Oh these brains are so much better than the other set. But are they perfect? Maybe, or maybe not. What about the same brains in green? Already on order. Continue reading

Sigh. A recap. I have mentioned this before. (Those are only the two most recent posts; I’d say there’s a yearly post on this topic.) I take very a expensive MS medication. This is redundant. No such thing as a... Continue reading

I am generally cranky when Gary wakes me up, which he did right before midnight. He barged into my room, which is my room because I was thrown out of the marital bed for keeping him awake with my “energy,”... Continue reading

This week the dog went from this: ... to this: I wanted to compare it with the earlier dog. I like the new one better. I am going back to the guided books. I noticed I do have a book... Continue reading

These things have pleased me lately because I anticipate a bad situation, and then find it has not happened. I open the garage door, expecting a cold dark garage, and find it is a cold illuminated garage, because we always... Continue reading

My brother’s surgical scar from this past summer still has not healed, and interestingly, the wound specialist blames Dave’s fat. It’s fighting to get out and is tearing apart where they stitched up his muscles. “Wait,” I said, “your muscles... Continue reading

Well, I have very poor visual-spatial perception (I think that’s evident from the paintings) and the brain soap I bought is just too small for the mini-skull. Larger brain soap is on order, though. Continue reading

We’ve had an epic snow here in the Midwest, the kind of snow that makes the raccoons stay in torpor, so the squirrels and birds have been eating food that doesn’t smell of raccoon paws. It’s very popular. We’ve discovered... Continue reading

I made a mistake this past Thursday. I left the guest room door open when I was in a Zoom meeting, and Gary came home and poked his head in. I gave him a barely perceptible nod, because I was... Continue reading

I have made the bathroom into my own 25 year art project. You saw the addition of the epithelial cells chart. I thought, I just need one more thing. A speculum. I did find this festive rainbow speculum ... ...... Continue reading

This week the peonies went from this: ... and then they took a really surprising turn and went to this: ... when they were originally this: Dark, thick peonies. No more peonies ever. What next? Maybe a giant croquet ball?... Continue reading

I was in a department meeting when a visiting speaker said, “I mean, that’s what’s you expect. It’s table steaks.” Then she went on, but I was still hung up in this new phrase. Table steaks? Like ... table wine?... Continue reading

A friend who writes knows I am working on the novel, and offered a peer critique, so I am first presenting her with a ... a précis? A summary? It would be a treatment if it were fifty pages long,... Continue reading

Okay, there’s a new buzzword at work. Or buzz phrase. Or buzz cultural reference. It’s the Oregon Trail computer game. It was designed in the seventies, but it didn’t become a popular technique for teaching the perils of the Oregon... Continue reading

Skipping Thanksgiving and Christmas was vital for getting through the holidays. Evidently it worked so well that we are also skipping the observation of the Feast of Saint Valentine. It’s interesting to me how Gary’s expression of love have changed... Continue reading

Last night it was 3:30 am and I hadn’t been able to sleep yet, so I just decided to get my work laptop and start working. I worked until oh, 11:30, when I needed to have an urgent video conference... Continue reading

This week the peonies went from this: ... to this, which I hate. No more peonies ever after I lighten things up on the left. And maybe knock down the intensity. It looks like a couch. I like the top... Continue reading

From NPR, February 5th: An immune suppressed man in Boston caught Covid and didn’t get over it. He couldn’t, because the virus kept mutating inside his body. They sequenced the genomes while the poor man took five months to die,... Continue reading

President Trump is being tried in the Senate today. Of, course, he won’t be convicted. For every seditious thing he said, he said the opposite, because that’s what he does. And his lawyers will be justified in saying the entire... Continue reading

I swear, last week I was watching the debate over Marjorie Scott Greene staying in her special House committees, and I keep hoping just one Congressperson would throw the prepared notes in the air and shout: JEWISH? SPACE? LASERS? ...... Continue reading

According to Gary, the car mechanic asked Gary how far he drove a week. Gary answered, “Two thousand miles.” I am not good with math, but even I knew this was wrong, and I questioned him. This tells you all... Continue reading

It’s been hard painting in the basement now that the weather is below twenty degrees. I’ve got a space heater (it’s okay, it’s not a fire-setting space heater) and it just isn’t doing the job (probably because it’s not a... Continue reading

My brother said one of his physical therapists had recommended using a car buffer on his back for his pain. It sounds odd, but it seems this Ryobi buffer is just the ticket for any big muscle pain. It’s heated... Continue reading

Well, maybe not “bumped” again, given that I’m really just clarifying the definitions of the vaccination tiers. It seems that in Missouri: If you take an immune-suppressant so you don’t reject your organ transplant, then you move up in the... Continue reading
