Is This Real Life?

Since you're reading this, I feel I'm safe in assuming that you're at least a somewhat regular consumer of the Internet. As such, you've probably encountered at least a couple listicles featuring examples of a specific type of false memory known as the Mandela Effect. Just in case you've missed the internet's fascination with it,... Continue Reading →

A Bittersweet Discovery

Kalen left for work after lunch and I watched out the window for a few more minutes, thinking about how the bees were a much more compelling blog topic than the New Year roundup I had planned. I knew I would never get any good pictures from my living room, though, between Pippin's nose art... Continue Reading →

Swimming Surprises

I know we all have those dreams that are so realistic that we're just shocked when we wake up, but do you ever have the opposite happen? Where you have to stop and really assess whether what's going on around you is real? I don't mean the theory that we're all living in a simulation,... Continue Reading →

Oh Deer, Is It That Time Again?

Eons ago, when Facebook had only just begun its rapid decline into rabid division, I enjoyed with one afternoon's lunch a particularly delightful piece of bread.

Confusmas Cactus

I still haven't gotten used to having all my plants inside for the winter which is good because it means I actually remember to water them. As I watered them this weekend, I noticed that two of my succulents have buds on them, which is exciting. I don't want to name the ones that have... Continue Reading →
