Happy Dance

leave a comment »

Finally, I’m learning to dance! At least, enough so to look forward to dancing in public without feeling uncomfortable about how awkward I still am.

Love Is the True Pink

One needn’t be an escapist indulging in fantasy to have fun. Far the contrary, the best fun comes from love, and love is the purest fun. So he who is too “practical” to accept fun is missing out on the most real experience of life: the joy of doing things together.

Fitbit Nitwit

with one comment

Fitbit FlexI got a a Fitbit Flex for Christmas! Thank you, SuziQ!

My favorite feature of the device so far: the sleep pattern function. I had been keeping track of my sleep recently via the Now/Then iPhone app, but my tracking routine was rather haphazard and aimless, in part because I had no good way to adjust for times when I would be up during the night, sometimes with patches of insomnia. My first night using the Fitbit function appears to have been rather close to what I remember of a rather rough night, interrupted by too much coughing after exercising my throat too much yesterday too soon after recuperating from a cold. Give me a series of consecutive nights using this new gadget, and I’ll have something I can work with.

I’m Gonna Be a Grandma!!

leave a comment »

“If you wouldn’t be too embarrassed…,” Ron comments.

Ummm, me be embarrassed? Has he not been to any of my performances?? Oh sure, there have been times when I have been offended by insults about who I am or what I do, but only when the ridicule has lacked truth. Like, when my eighth grade English teacher publicly ridiculed a composition I’d written as having been influenced by “too much TV,” unaware that she was speaking of a child who had grown up with no TV at all. But anyone who has ever accused me of worrying about what people think of me simply doesn’t know me at all. I’m not out to make fans or collect groupies. Sharing a smile or too will do quite fine, thank you.

So yes, I’ll be the grandma for our Singers’ rendition this Christmas of Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer. And have fun doing so. I don’t happen to believe a person has to be unrealistic to know how to have fun with living. This place needs a few more grandma types who have fun being who they are, right?

Quinoa and Black Beans

leave a comment »

Nothing’s no fun when what one says the other means,
by any words they’d choose tasting just as good
as how we go together, like quinoa and black beans.

Hope’s not sold at the market. Whatever the scenes
we’re given to play, don’t we have fun as we should?
Nothing’s no fun when what one says the other means.

As essential as protein are you! Were all cuisines
as super at what they do, go down easy they could
as how we go together, like quinoa and black beans.

One’s not truly tried things one thinks of as in betweens
the real things one cooks up for what’d be if one would.
Nothing’s no fun when what one says the other means

A ham sloppy joe, please. Or two BMT submarines.
Or what goes with catsup’s as near my neighborhood
as how we go together, like quinoa and black beans.

Seconds, dear. Let no love go lost in humdrum routines
where despair’s the menu and appetite’s misunderstood.
Nothing’s no fun when what one says the other means
as how we go together, like quinoa and black beans.
