A Dater’s Guide to Disney Princesses: Elsa

I know. Elsa is not a princess. Once we hit the second act of Frozen, Elsa makes it through the coronation ceremony and becomes a queen. She's only a princess for the first 15 minutes of the movie. She is not included on Disney's official list of princesses, nor is her sister, Anna. As a … Continue reading A Dater’s Guide to Disney Princesses: Elsa

Question of the Week #80

Would you rather die peacefully among friends at age 50, or painfully and alone at age 80? Assume that most of the last 30 years would be good ones. Ugh... never assume. And if I choose to die peacefully among friends at 50, I'm more than halfway into those last 30 years. Not that I'm … Continue reading Question of the Week #80

Question of the Week #77

Do you feel ill at ease going alone to either dinner or a movie? What about going on a vacation by yourself? I do dinner and movies by myself all the time. Well, not all the time.

Question of the Week #74

Would you enjoy spending a month of solitude in a beautiful natural setting? Food and shelter would be provided but you would not see another person. I do like my alone time. I'm picturing some kind of shipwrecked, tropical island setting. There are times when I go a day or two without contact with another … Continue reading Question of the Week #74

Hey, kids… I’m out of town this week. Finally taking that vacation I’ve been thinking about for eight years. Anyway, while I’m gone some friends have agreed to write some guest posts for my blog.

There’s No Reason

Caution: This post is a vent session. If you don't want to read my current complaints, go somewhere else. Do you ever have days where you just don't want to be around people? Do you ever have a bad day when there's just no logical reason for it to be bad? That's the kind of … Continue reading There’s No Reason

Invisible

No one ever saw me coming. Sure, in my younger years I may have been something to see. I had my share of admirers, but I never took any of those ladies, or myself for that matter, very seriously at all. For a short time, I thought I was on top of the world. It's … Continue reading Invisible

Freaking Out

This morning, before the sun rose, I woke up to make a trip to the bathroom. This is a normal thing. I stand up, a little disoriented from the fact that I've just opened my eyes for the first time in several hours. It's still fairly dark, but I know my way around the place … Continue reading Freaking Out
