7 Reasons to Give Up and Go Back to the Stone Age

Before you say, “Hey Annabelle, these are NOT real problems.”  I say, “Yeah, I get it. But shut up. Mama’s in a ranting mood.” Apple TV I had no intention of buying into another subscription service for streaming, we already have too many, but I was forced into purchasing a new iPhone and it came with a FREE one-year trial to Apple TV. So, I’m … Continue reading 7 Reasons to Give Up and Go Back to the Stone Age

Shows I’m Watching in the Middle of the Night

The Politician HIT, HIT, HIT! I absolutely loved both seasons of this smart, quick, well-written, terrifically cast show. I mean come on. . .Bette Midler alone as the right arm and political advisor of the wonderful Judith Light is worth the viewing. She can do absolutely no wrong and the two of them together are a joy to watch. Bette threatening to hit the road … Continue reading Shows I’m Watching in the Middle of the Night

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.

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.

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.
