  • QotD: A 2018 check-list

    QotD: Have you made any New Year’s resolutions?  It's too easy to get overly ambitious with New Year's resolutions, so I try to keep them really vague so that I can feel like I accomplished something at the end of the year.  I try to maintain a healthy level of self-loathing all thr...

  • QotD: Books, Etc.

    QotD: What are you reading!   I am currently reading "The Four Agreements" by Miguez Ruiz, as part of some yoga book club thing.  And then "The Supremes' Greatest Hits" by Michael G. Trachtman. It's about the most important court cases in the US (not the band, lol).  I figured it wa...
  • QotD: Song Bird

    QotD: Is there a line of a song in your head right now? What is it?  Lately it's been Beach House's "Space Song." This song has been out for maybe a year now, and I keep coming back to it periodically.  The "fall back into place" line gets stuck in my head a lot.  It's so beautifu...

  • QotD: My Intro to the Big Screen

    QotD: What was the first movie you remember seeing in a movie theater?   Oliver and Company, 1988!  I was four. I remember bursting out crying at some point and my mother having to take me out of the theater.   Other early movie experiences - Batman, 1989 (Jack Nicholson scared the ...
  • QotD: Travel Time!

    QotD: QotD: If you could travel to any where in the world, where would you go and why?  If I could have TWO answers, I'd say first - Italy. I haven't been since 1993.  I want to see my nonna again since she is aging.  I want to see my aunts and uncles again, and meet all the cousins ...
