Time to go pumpkin hunting

Just a super quick “get another Arcade pic done” post before I head out for the evening to do some trivia and whiskey tasting. My friends and I are instituting a “Whiskey Tasting Wednesday” once a month. It’s a thing. Anyways, this round of the Arcade close tonight. You’ve got – *checks the clock* – 5ish more hours to get your fill until it comes back on December 1st.

I tried to be the lover to your nightmare

At this moment I am listening to my friend drunkenly sing along to whatever song catches her attention on YouTube. Sometimes I can tell what songs they are… and sometimes not. This is a common occurrence when she drinks. All through her musical adventures, I am either trying to muffle my laughter or giving up the fight and bust out laughing. What I am supposed to be doing is writing this post though.

Play in the dirt because life is too short to always have clean fingernails

Your mind is a garden.
Your thoughts are the seeds.
You can grow flowers
or you can grow weeds.

It’s been quite a while since I last blogged. Life happenings and obligations have kept me pretty busy and I’m now just settling back in to a (vaguely) normal routine. I’ve learned that sometimes life just keeps pushing ahead while you’re dragging your feet and wanting to stay put. But I’m nothing if not resilient, so now I’m doing the pushing. So far, I like it much better that way. 😉 Continue reading “Play in the dirt because life is too short to always have clean fingernails”

Positive Thinking Sees the Invisible, Feels the Intangible, and Can Achieve the Impossible

…Why not think about times to come,
And not about the things that you’ve done,
If your life was bad to you,
Just think what tomorrow will do.

Don’t stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here,
It’ll be, better than before,
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone…

A Second Chance Doesn’t Mean Anything if You Learned Nothing from the First

…And as I float along this ocean
I can feel you like a notion that won’t seem to let me go

Cause when I look to the sky something tells me you’re here with me
And you make everything alright
And when I feel like I’m lost something tells me you’re here with me
And I can always find my way when you are here…

…And when I feel like there is no one that will ever know me
There you are to show me

Cause when I look to the sky something tells me you’re here with me
And you make everything alright
And when I feel like I’m lost something tells me you’re here with me
And I can always find my way when you are here.

Love is What’s in the Room With You at Christmas if You Stop Opening Presents and Listen

…Merry Christmas, darling
We’re apart, that’s true
But I can dream and in my dreams
I’m Christmas-ing with you…

My family has had the tradition of having Chinese food for Christmas Eve dinner for over 40 years. So when I saw the Not So X-mas Dinner that Le Primtif had in their gacha machine at The Arcade I knew it was a must have set for me. Lucky for me the machine was very nice to me and all I had to get on my own through trading was the fried rice. After all, what’s Chinese food without the fried rice?
