    I'm cursed, I swear.

    I have found all sorts of junk in food. You could call me the Queen on this, though its a title I wish I didn't have. You name it, I've found it in food. Plastic pieces, hair, wire from pot scrubbers, etc. Not just store-bought food, but home-made stuff as well, even though mom goes to great lengths to avoid having foreign matter baked in. So, at this point, you might say "Why not just eat raw food?" Yeah, but I've found stuff in there, too. Bugs, mostly. Aphids on broccoli, worms in the middle of cucumbers, and slugs in cabbage, even though said food was looked over with a "fine toothed comb" as it were.

    It doesn't happen as much as it used to, but I swear, someone cursed me.


    You know that eels from both North America and Europe travel to the same place to mate? When breeding time comes, eels from both continents travel all the way to Sargasso Sea, an area in the mid-Atlantic between Europe and North America, where they mate with species of their own kind. Weird, hu…

    A lightning storm passed through about midnight last night. We have one of those "weather radios," so the thunder started from a distance just as the radio's warning was over.

    Boy, was it a light show, and not generally the good kind. There's something about lightning storms that if they happen to come in the night whilst you're sleeping, it, for some reason, keeps you awake. Must be the "charge" in the air. There were so many flashes in the night that if you sat by a window, you could have read a book. No kidding.

    Me? I prefer light rain (or just rain in general) with no lightning, 'cause that can short out the electricity in your house, which is a big bummer.


    Ever heard of a "fulgerite"? It is a type of stone created by lightning strikes. No kidding! Lighting may actually liquify the sand or stone that it strikes, and when the liquid solidifies, it creates root- or branch-shaped stones called Fulgerites.


    Ever pick up money from the ground?

    I used to find lots of change on the ground/parking lot/store floors (if in a store, mostly by the checkout) when I'd go to town, but since the recession/depression (whichever you prefer to call it), I don't find that much, if I find any at all. I used to find upwards of a dollar (in change), but now I feel lucky if I find a penny or two.

    People must be more cautious so they don't drop change, pick up their change if they happen to drop it, or someone gets there before myself.

    I wish it could be more like the old days. Who doesn't like more money?


    There was an old "remedy" I read about for when someone stopped breathing back in 1911 (remember, this was before CPR was invented) that involved stripping them, sitting them in a bathtub, and pouring ice cold water over them. If they imediately didn't wake up, more freezing water was doused over them.

    I guess the idea was that the shock of the cold water would wake them up, though said treatment could also have the potential to give someone a h…

    I stepped on a snake the other day.

    It felt like stepping on a stick at first, but then it felt kind of rubbery, like a small garden hose under your feet. I didn't realize it was a snake at first (otherwise I would have totally avoided it), but something about the way it felt under my shoe made me turn around and look down. Then I was so shocked that I had a hard time getting my voice to work to shout at mom because I had just stepped on a poisonous snake! I finally managed to cry out "I stepped on a Copperhead!" and since she was close behind me, she ran up and began to scream "Oh, my God, did it bite you?!" and I managed to stutter (still wading through shock) that I was not bitten.

    It was a cold morning, and it had just rained, so the snake, likely being stunned by being both cold and stepped on, just managed to flicker its tongue. Mom was blowing on a whistle at this point (kept for emergencies like this) to summon dad, to which shortly afterwards he appeared and mom's trying to inf…

    A few years ago, I used to have a printer that took an hour to print pictures.

    I'm not kidding.

    It came from a friend (who was really dad's boss) who was replacing hers (no wonder!), but it still worked, so she had wanted to know if we wanted it. As we had a computer but no printer, we had accepted. Only then did we realize that the thing, for whatever reason, took an hour or more to print a 8x10 picture. On documents it would do okay, though sometimes it would get it in its electrical brain to take as long on documents as it did on pictures. If I had known that it would have been that way, I would have never told dad to go ahead and bring the behemoth home.


    You know where the word "eavesdropping" came from? Back in the Medieval ages, gossips stood under the eaves of houses to catch conversations of the dwelers' activities, so came the word because they were dropping in on the conversations under the eaves.


    Ever seen "poems" that didn't make any sense to you?

    Lately I've been wrting poetry. Before you leave saying I'm one of those hoity-toity art-folk type people, no I'm not. Never been. Sure, I have my prefered types of art, but I'm not one of those people who hang out in galleries contemplating art and its meaning.

    There have been some awful poems out there. Lots of them:

    • Don't make any sense

    And most importantly

    • Don't rhyme

    So then, what's the point? Isn't that what's supposed to be poetry in the first place? It rhymes, and just as important, makes sense? So the poetry I write makes sense and rhymes. Granted, its about stuff that generally isn't written about in poetry, like crappy music and branches falling down in windy weather (no joke), but at least the reader won't stare off into space trying to comprehend the meaning of it.


    Do you know that there are bugs that spend years as larvae before growing into an adult, then the adult form only lasts a month or so? The Cicada is one. It spends 7 years as a beetle-type entity burrowing in the dirt…
