Pokémagic

Remember that post I did a while back on how I was super unexpectedly connecting over Pokémon Go with a colleague (jezus, was that already almost two months ago?)? After which I got straight back into being a Poké-addict, even putting my friend code in my footer and joining a PokéGo-forum? Doesn’t matter!! Because noContinue reading “Pokémagic”

A simple sum

So about this ‘alone’ business…Do you even know how lonely it is?Having to spend each night by yourself…When there’s only one thing you miss? I mean, I am (of course) great company….And it doesn’t really take all that much to see…That when it comes to myself….I don’t mind it being just me. Except for theContinue reading “A simple sum”

Tinder Tales – Why ARE we here?

“En wat zoek jij op Tinder, dan?’Translation: ‘So, what are you looking for on Tinder?’ It is THE most seen line (by me, anyway) on Tinder that tends to come up in pretty much ANY conversation I have on there (there’s quite some data available). And it vexes me to no end. Seriously. This poorContinue reading “Tinder Tales – Why ARE we here?”

Heart-body Connections?

Interesting factoids have always been one of my favorite things to ‘know‘. Trivia that might be slightly useless in daily goings-on but that are mightily interesting to drop in a casual conversation. So when I opened James’ World today and read the list of info he’d compiled, I was obviously delighted. Mostly because a lotContinue reading “Heart-body Connections?”

No more golden days

As fall begins to color the world around us – I mourn the loss of color in mine. I used to have golden days. Shimmering, bright,filled with an energy that fueled my world. They used to be golden days. Then distance set in,‘Tween you, me and the world.While dark greys color the hours.And even thoughContinue reading “No more golden days”

Oh dear – It’s baby season

“Congratulations auntie!” read one of the text messages I got yesterday. And awkwardness ensued.I think my initial witty reply of of ‘Gee, thanks aunt, for congratulating me with the birth of a niece to a brother I haven’t seen or spoken to in well over ten years and who I will most probably never everContinue reading “Oh dear – It’s baby season”

Rerun Rebounds

Sometimes things I read on the internet stick to my brain. After all, everything we read on the internet is true, right? So just imagine how much wisdom there’s just there to be had, right at our fingertips. It’s AM-AH-ZING.(Ok. After reading some of the (alien) conspiracy/flat earther/horoscopey blogs that ARE out there, ya mightContinue reading “Rerun Rebounds”

And then I tell myself…

One from the archives – just to end the week with a flair of drama: And then I tell myself. They tell me to be strong.They tell me to heal.And then I tell myself….Maybe I was happier being unhappy with you. They tell me I’m being strong.They tell me I’m healing.And then I tell myself…HowContinue reading “And then I tell myself…”

Would you date yourself?

Hairdresser wait times. They are a particular timezone all their own, it seems. You’re warped into a bend of time where it starts to crawl so slowly that reading anything becomes acceptable just to make the clock run faster.  Even….. Cosmopolitan (or some shitty how-to-be-a-woman magazine of a similar category). And as I sat thereContinue reading “Would you date yourself?”
