No More Polls

… for now.  I originally had a plan to add one poll a day from 12/1 to 12/25 but I have run out of things to ask.  At least I made it to 12/9.  Perhaps I should have gone with every other day but such is life.

You’d have thought I could have come up with something considering I have squandered away my day.  Ugh!  I need to have plans or structure goes out the door.  No structure = extreme sloth in my case.

Wait! I googled sloth and nope, not quite there.  Lazy is only an element of sloth.  Here is the entire description:

“a sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die.”

Today has been a day of learning new things.  YaY day!

I have been reading and in #SoCS someone wrote that music was their liquor.  Me too!  I am old school iTune and therefore have a mix of Pony and Lulu’s music with mine that has been playing on a loop all day.  Maybe that is how time got away from me.  I got caught up on quite a bit actually so maybe there is something to show for my efforts.  I am in a swirl of what the hell time is it even? Feels like nighttime and not  almost 3 pm.

Hmmm, but wait!  I still have time.  I am outta here peeps.  Turning off all electronics. Let’s see where this leads shall we.

As always, more to come.

#SoCS ~ 12/9/17 ~ liqu

Ah what a beautiful day in the neighborhood!!  Time for weekly #SoCS fun!  Quoting the source of the one and only, the fabulous Linda G Hill:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “liqu.” Find a word that starts with “liqu” or has “liqu” in it, and base your post on that word. Have fun! 

Well thanks Linda!  Not even a whole word???  Geez, can it get any better?  Lol!

Challenge accepted.  I love this mind game.  Let’s commence.

Obvious – this post has to be about liquid.  I bet there are not more than a handful of liqu words anyways.  And in typical #SoCS fashion I will not research.  I am rolling like a river here or a stream as the case may be.  A liquid journey on a path to nowhere.  Cuz … I got de nada.

Correction, I got nada.  De nada means you’re welcome.  Google it if you don’t believe me!  I already googled it months ago and the thought just popped into my head now.  Nada is nothing and de nada is you’re welcome and despite the nada connection these two are un-related.  Trippy man.  Just trippy. And look at me still following the rules :).  Lol!

Now I say to myself Jilly McGillicuddy, you DO got something.  Liqueur! Dr. McGillicuddy’s liqueur to be exact.  Your long-lost twin.  The doctor not the liqueur.

You are no longer a drinker but where you were boy howdy.  Peppermint liqueur anyone?? Or Cherry?  Your fave.  I mean c’mon!  The doctor … he is a cross between a wise-ass and a wise man.  He makes every flavor in the book.  Butterscotch, lemon, grape, menthol-mint, chocolate and more! And this stuff is deceptive as it tastes much more like a dessert than an alcoholic beverage.

Hmmm, going to keep the ghosts of Christmases past in the bottle and end this stream right here.  Happy Saturday y’all.

If you’d like to play along and I highly encourage you to do so, here are the Rules and Ping Back

As always more to come.

Gender Bias

The following was written two years ago on this day. Pre-blog. Topic is still relevant which is why I’m sharing here.

I attended a webinar today about unconscious gender bias. Made me stop and think. Lulu is going into pre-nursing. A friend of ours told her “don’t stop there why not become a doctor?” She assumed Paige thought a female can’t become a doctor. Lulu has only ever had a female doctor. She told our friend “I’d rather help ppl hands on”. She saw what H went through fighting cancer and it was always the nurses who did everything. She wants to do that. And that’s a bias too … that all the nurses helping H were female … they weren’t! Makes me realize bias starts early and it is everywhere.

So tonight vegging out watching Survivor when B said during a challenge “she throws like a girl” I kind of lost it. “Oh yeah well this girl might kick your a$$”. He was confused. He meant nothing bad by what he said.

As if I could … kick his a$$. I mean I am a girl 😇I’m SO mean to him even after he made me delicious crispy tacos. Doh! Girly boy likes to cook 😉. I’m joking. No haters please.

If you’re a daddy of a daughter, let her know that she can be ANYTHING she wants to be; she can rule the world.

PEACE out!✌️

As always more to come.
