Snoooooooooooo-oop!

Music video for context of why I titled this post the way I did. I am 100% curious by nature. Sometimes a smidge more than 100% and my mother can vouch because she raised me and has had to deal with my incessant questions in conversations since I was a wee one. Maybe not my…

Ink, Guys, and Friends

Today is Christmas. So, Merry Christmas. I worked like crazy all pre-holiday, but not without some fun in the mix. First we shall start with work. I was a new hire in September with another person. I made a few friends with my new hire crew, but this one was a little different. He would flirt with me and I felt it was harmless so I flirted back. He is 6 years my junior which matters because I will admit I am an ageist. I don’t and have never dated or been intimate with anyone younger than me. The way…

Childfree, without being a dick.

I was listening to music, but it didn’t have the satisfying feel it does when I’m getting ready for work. Or when I’m in my car. No, when I clean my house — or really, pick a room to clean (typically the kitchen) — I love listening to podcasts. Usually conversational podcasts. Today is Monday…

Me too.

Lena Dunham has done some fucked up things in the past, but now I am thoroughly soured by her. It is one thing to be so mad pro-choice you say something dumb like how you wish you had an abortion. But when you side with a man accused of raping a woman (technically only 17 at…

Missing the Value of Consent

Disclaimer: I do not know the full story on Roy Moore. I do not know the full story on Al Franken. I do not know the full story to Louis CK other than what he said himself in his admission. I don’t even know the full story of Bill Cosby, or CeeLo Green. These are…

This is going to be a tangent

I think it’s ridiculous when people argue Apple vs Android (Usually Samsung). Maybe because it pisses me off that they usually lack the knowledge to effectively argue which technology is “better.” I saw a graphic (which spurred this tangent) about a pseudo argument between Apple and Android users. I’m sure you can find several just googling it. This will not be a tangent on what is better because to be straight, I think they are both bringing their A games. Also I believe it truly depends on the user and what’s important to them. Let’s get to the heart of…

Since everyone else is doing it

Everyone is ragging on the choice for Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine. The “winner” is/was/everyone will forget this in 5 minutes so wtf will it matter Blake Shelton. Totally making an assumption, I think he had a good following in the country music realm (I don’t listen to country) but I really think his…

Struck

I am attracted to everyone when I first meet them. Then it wears off. It always wears off. Jessa Johansson (Girls HBO)

I will miss you, dashboard

For years now, whatever year it was WordPress(.com) came out with the “new and improved editor” — which is on an interface that I feel supports mobile devices more so than your standard computers — bloggers and myself have speculated on the dashboard’s impending doom.

Four Chapters In…

I was looking for something to listen to while I put myself to bed like a 10-year-old at 9pm last night. Well, maybe, a 10-year-old who has parents who give fucks about bedtime.

What’s in your head?

Last night, I was catching up on a few blogs I follow. I noticed Heather from dooce® wrote an essay that mentioned how grateful she was for the therapy that has and is helping her daughters. It is in fact titled: The life-changing magic of really expensive therapy It made me begin to review how…

What do I need more of in my life?

He said: Don’t you feel lonely living in your own little world? She whispered: Don’t you feel powerless living in other people’s worlds? Interestingly enough, LaxxStyle is a play on words based on how I have felt as of late. I feel awkward when communicating with other people. Having discussions or conversations or simply trying…

Sunday Confession

I was reading PostSecret this morning. Seems every so often there is a secret there that could’ve come from me. It didn’t because I’m too lazy to do anything involved with snail mail. I digress.

Daughter

In my about page, I mention that Nora Elise is a name I made up for if I ever had a daughter. I am almost 32 and have yet to find that prince charming so it’s not looking promising.
