Onion Breath

I’m a food person.  A foodie, a glutton, a gourmand, whatever you want to call it. I’m not a food snob either.  I like hearty meals, some fast food, some high end stuff, some salads, some compilations of lard and meat and cheese that would end a person’s life in the right situation.  I’ve dropped …

My work situation, in the past, has consisted of escalating levels of stupidity that would enrage even the most enlightened of souls, if they felt any responsibility at all toward their post and the overall well-being of the company, its customers and the co-workers around …

Kindness Toward The Self

I’m trying to get a little bit more of this in today. I’ve been fairly down on myself for the past week or so, questioning my skills and my abilities and generally wanting to scrap it all and start over.  Again. For the thousandth time.  At least. Part of that is the comedown from an …
