An Open Letter To My Intuition…

Dear Intuition, You and I have been great friends for some time now, and for the most part, I have absolutely no complaints. In fact, you’ve been a better friend to me than virtually anyone I’ve ever known, and clearly have better judgment than I myself do. You’ve kept me out of some sticky situations; […]

Birthday Confessions…..

“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”~ Abraham Lincoln I have a confession to make….. I am the kind of person who gets depressed, introspective, and melancholy whenever her birthday rolls around. Of course, I do my very best to hide this fact, […]

The Grinch That Stole Alayna….

This year, I’m being a little bit of a Grinch when it comes to Christmas. Normally, I’m the first one to be all about the shopping, the carols, the tree, the cards and reminders of love from friends, and of course, the cookies. I don’t like cold weather, but I love the holiday season…particularly since […]

A Quiz You Can’t Fail!

Via a blogger friend of mine doing a study into such things, I received a free code to take a “scientific” personality quiz appearing in Psychology Today, called “How Assertive Are You?” (The overall assessment is free, but they charge you if you want to know more about your detailed report.) The invite came via […]

A Little Bit Of Valium, A Little More Sylvia….

It’s been a bit of a challenging week here so far, so you’ll have to forgive me for being a little forgetful about keeping everyone in blog-world updated. I had the misfortune to, a few days ago, run out of my prescription Valium about a week before the next prescription was to be filled. This […]

An Important Rediscovery…..

“If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are gone, either write things worth reading or do things worth writing.” ~ Benjamin Franklin Although today was not the best of days, mostly because health-related issues were the worst they’d been in some time, probably due to the weather changing rather dramatically (from 83 […]

Emptying The Mailbox……

Yesterday, I took some time to go through the over 800 unmoderated comments sitting on this website. It was a slow and arduous task, but finally, I’ve gotten myself caught up. You see, I initially made the decision to keep comments moderated because I have my fair share of enemies, people who don’t share my […]

Sometimes, Life Wants You To Take A Day Off

This morning I woke up to discover that my cable and internet were down; the icing on the cake for what I like to call the 2011 Summer Of Doom. After verifying that, yes, everything was plugged in properly, and, no, the dog didn’t unplug one of the multitude of cords and splitters that ensure […]

You Don’t Have To Go Home, But You Can’t Stay Here….

I had a number of different topics to write about recently, but I think the theme for the week is this: crazy people. This particular post got moved to the front of the writing ideas queue because once again, my roommate had an out-of-town friend imposing on our hospitality, and staying with us. In the […]

An Unexpected Hiatus!

As you may have noticed, I haven’t been around much lately, and the “Life Less Ordinary” project has found itself on hiatus. Initially, this was a good thing—I spent two and a half weeks traveling to see family and friends in the Northeast, hanging out in NYC, Philly, and spending a week in the sun […]
