THE Stable Geniuses

It’s amazing all these “very stable geniuses” running around making companies, states and countries great again. But somehow that greatness is like invisible or opaque or something??🤔 or maybe it’s just akin to [hurtling] towards hell in the proverbial hand basket. It’s quite a sight to witness. Like a train wreck we can’t turn our…

“I can assist you no further” said the IT guy

“I can assist you no further.” This was an actual sentence uttered. No, not even uttered, typed in a Teams chat by the IT guy working on my computer at work yesterday. This guy is part of the team that is working on the migration of our division’s infrastructure, software, applications and platforms after we…

Three wishes

They come in threes don’t they? Those proverbial wishes from the proverbial genie in a bottle. Okay I know I just repeated the word proverbial in the same sentence 3 words apart. And compounded the blunder by doing it yet again. This is the proverbial train wreck of paragraphs. OMG, I did it again! Jeez,…

The nightmare that wasn’t

Awakening found me this morning in one those rarest of dreams. A nightmarish dream that I wanted to remain in. As with many dreams, it was all over the map. It was the spiders that turned the dream into a nightmare. Ugh, creepy crawlies!! I hate them. And I know what you are thinking. What…

With my eye I spy

Looking forward to seeing what this critter will do. It is currently on one of my flower plants and basically has almost eaten it all. A more experienced gardener told me it was a Hummingbird something. So of course I had to do some further research. And yes, I do know that curiosity killed the…

July 4 Fireworks

Not to rain on anyone’s parade, but I don’t much like the smell of fireworks in the air. This morning, the air smelt like napalm not that I even know what napalm smells like! But it’s horrible. Smoldering, smoky like some kinda war zone. The noise late into the night is a whole other headache…

Oh oh,might I be a wasp killer, A pollinator killer??

Lying on my bed yesterday, I saw this huge wasp flying in my room. How it got in initially stumped me but obviously I had to act immediately! So without missing a beat, I leaped out the bed like I was somehow twenty something years old again. And out the bedroom door, I went, frantically…

The Dead Tree

Funny the things you’ll notice all of a sudden sometimes. Things you’d swear were never there. But they were, had been. Perhaps for a long time even. Like this dead tree I chanced upon today Despite coming here 2-3 times a week walking right by it, maybe just a mere 200 or 300 feet away…

Week 2 at an HMO Contact Center

Every once in a while, I take work contracts outside my main careers to push me a little outside my comfort zone or fill in the gaps between larger assignments. So a few weeks ago, genius that I am, I took such a role. It sounded enticing. Fully remote, field a few calls, direct folks…
