2021 Golden Globes Nominees and Other Reviews.

It’s awards season! It’s the woot-woot time of my year, but I’m super sad there will be no traditional ceremonies and red-carpet events. The fashion was half the fun and while I’ll definitely be tuning in, the experience will not be the same. (Insert image of me blubbering into a cocktail here). That said, I’m trying to do my homework. So far, hubby and I … Continue reading 2021 Golden Globes Nominees and Other Reviews.

Bling Empire, The Queen’s Gambit, and Pudding Shot Recipes.

A Trifecta. Let’s go. Ah, the middle of the night. I can’t sleep because. . . (insert just about any cause and concern here.) So I turn on the TV to distract myself. First up, Bling Empire. I’m not exactly ashamed to say I watched it, but there was a bit more guilt attached to the viewing than I cared for. I mean, I wasn’t … Continue reading Bling Empire, The Queen’s Gambit, and Pudding Shot Recipes.

Bridgerton. My Review. Ooh La La.

A trending, hot show on Netflix, I love me a period piece and thought, Oh Yeah, I’m saving this one for Christmas eve for my daughter, husband, and I to watch. After the prerequisite viewing of Die Hard, my son’s go-to Xmas movie, my son turned his nose up at Bridgerton and the rest of us gathered round the tv in front of the fire … Continue reading Bridgerton. My Review. Ooh La La.

Can the Dog Pee on You?

“Can you come over so the dog can pee on you?” I asked my daughter. “What?” “We need to get a urine sample for the vet.” I heard the patient, deep inhale expressing the standard ‘what-now’ from my 25-year-old. “I’m on a conference call, mom. I’m working?” Along with most people, Scarlett has been working from home, but her home is joyously only two miles … Continue reading Can the Dog Pee on You?

The Crown, Season 4. My Review.

I don’t think there will be any spoilers here, unless you are newly hatched or just learning about history, or living in a cave. Thrilled that Season 4 had finally arrived, I settled in to binge watch with George, but he only made it through the first three episodes then fell asleep. I stayed up all night to finish it. The show flies by. Overall, … Continue reading The Crown, Season 4. My Review.

Emily in Paris. My Review.

I’d heard this Netflix show was cute, trending, and lighthearted. It sounded perfect for my mood and for what I’m trying to feed my fearsome soul. Not immune to the impulse to find out what the fuss is about, I often glance through the new shows being heavily pushed by whatever studio or distribution company is putting their big bucks behind what they believe in. … Continue reading Emily in Paris. My Review.

Synesthesia – Like a person needs another dimension to feel in.

I don’t have it, but I’ve heard of it. It’s quirky and so is my brain, so I did some research. My husband, George, said the subject was too esoteric for my blog. I told him his face was esoteric. Let’s move on and break it down. Synesthesia (pronounced sin-uhs–thee-zhuh) is the sensory phenomena from the Greek “to perceive together.” The most common occurrence of … Continue reading Synesthesia – Like a person needs another dimension to feel in.
