Careless Talk

I was going to say nothing, but in the last hour things have changed. However, is it a struggle? It is bothersome and it does make me wish I had the ability to electrically zap people... but if I had that kind of power, would I really use it? There's this conundrum which presents itself...

Mystery Blogger Award:

At first I thought it was me, it had to be me, it's usually me, but then I realised that it wasn't me at all it was you. WordPress, it's you, and you seem to be glitching out more than usual. Perhaps you shouldn't have changed your colours. I know the new outfit is bright,... Continue Reading →

SYW: I Give You Permission To Read This Post

The title of this post is quite arrogant, isn't it. It's based on a line said by a character in a TV show to another character which was: "I give you permission to like me". At first I reacted to hearing it as I think viewers were supposed to react, with eye roll at the... Continue Reading →

To Be Used Only For Contemplation

It's my birthday today. It's a good day for contemplation. For looking behind a bit and looking ahead a bit, while taking it easy in the now. I'm crossing the threshold not just from one year into another, but from one decade to another. I'm 50 years old today. YAY! I'm actually very excited about... Continue Reading →

A Lamp Burns In A Human Body

What makes you interested in something or someone? What inspires you to want to know more about someone or something? What makes you lean in when someone is talking to focus on what they're saying? When you're browsing the internet, what is it that you're really seeking, hoping to find? What prompts you to click... Continue Reading →

A Parrot Repeats The Conversation He Has Overheard

What did the parrot overhear? Why is he repeating it? Was someone foolish enough to share a secret with a parrot? Or did they tell him something they wanted to be shared but they didn't want it coming from them? Sources close to so-and-so say such-and-such... Have you ever been told something "in secret" which... Continue Reading →

An Empty Hammock

Why is that hammock empty? Why would anyone, once in it, ever get out of it again. Doesn't it look idyllic. Warm. Inviting. The sound of crystal clear waters lapping gently against the shoreline. There's even a boat just in case you want to go somewhere else, but you never do because you're exactly where... Continue Reading →

SYW: Zozays to Zeezays

Hello, and welcome to January 2019. Please unfasten your seat belts, it has been a bumpy ride, but you've made it at last and we have landed. Last night I watched The Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2018 on replay, and minutes after it ended I moved onto the main event, Jools' Annual Hoontenanny.... Continue Reading →

Treasure Hunting Through the Years

Happy New Year!!! Best wishes to everyone!!! May 2019 be full of treasures found for you!!! I'm using 3 exclamation marks because this morning I read something somewhere which said that to express genuine ! you have to use !!! So ! = meh !! = meh-meh but !!! = YAY or something like that!...

Narcasm: The New Year and Narcissists

As I was prepping this post to begin writing it, my internet connection experienced a failure. It's not something worth having a tantrum about unless you're a narcissist. The new WordPress editor automatically saves progress seconds after you do anything. If the connection gets disrupted, a little pink banner pops up in the editor to... Continue Reading →

You Are Now Entering The Resolution Zone

It's that time of year again when we feel a certain strange mix of hope and despair, or is it just indigestion? We're looking forward to what's up ahead, just around that corner, over that hump, through that door, while running away from what's behind us… is it still chasing after us? It's a time... Continue Reading →

Mars/Chiron – Courage in the Wound

I had this great idea last night as I was drifting off to sleep. I don't know if it was really a great idea, it just felt like one. Have you ever had one of those? My being was suddenly energised, raring to go go go. This is amazing, Ursula, do it do it do... Continue Reading →

The Worth of Words

Are you woke? Are you a special snowflake? Are you an entitled Millennial? Are you getting annoyed by those questions? I'm still not entirely sure what those words mean or at least what people mean when they use them like that. Fights may break out if you ask a forum of people online what those... Continue Reading →

A Day for Boxing

What's in your box? What box do I mean? Am I asking about a metaphorical box or an actual box-box? Recently I've developed the habit of repeating a word, as in box-box, when I am talking about it in a literal manner to distinguish it from its figurative meanings. Hopefully I'll nip this affectation in... Continue Reading →

Share Your World on Christmas Day

Happy merry jingle jangle to everyone! Whether you celebrate Christmas or something else or nothing at all and this is just another day, whether you're in company or alone, best wishes to you all! I have no idea what to say or do in this post, but then again I rarely have a clue what... Continue Reading →

Melanie and Fandango Get Re-Blogged Together

Yesterday I wrote a post. Yay. In that post I asked a lot of questions. Yay? And two intrepid bloggers took up the challenge to answer those questions in posts on their blogs. YAY!!! I always get very excited when people don't run away screaming, clutching their head as though I had tried to chop... Continue Reading →

Reasons for Telling Your Story

What should I write here? What about here, what should I say? And when I get over there what on earth will I be rambling, babbling and writing about? What will be discovered, uncovered, rediscovered or covered? When you read a post or an article online, what do you think about it? Do you think... Continue Reading →

Narcasm: Fighting and Wanting Narcissists

Yesterday was the Winter Solstice for the Northern hemisphere, marking the darkest point of the year. It was pouring with rain last night. It was so heavy, pounding the roof above me. It felt as though it was never going to stop. This morning it's bright and sunny. Maybe it'll stay clear and I'll be... Continue Reading →

Stuff That Works and Stuff That Doesn’t Work

You may have noticed a difference, then again maybe you haven't noticed a difference. In what? In who? What's the difference? How do you measure difference? How do you know when someone or something is different? “It's supposed to be automatic, but actually you have to push this button.” - John Brunner, Stand on Zanzibar... Continue Reading →

Sing a Song

There's this challenge which many bloggers have been participating in which is called the 30 Day Song Challenge. It looks like fun. I considered joining in, but... I talked myself out of it. And now I've talked myself into it. You're supposed to post one a day... I'm doing them all in one post. I'm... Continue Reading →

Narcasm: Love and Hate and the Narcissist

Do narcissists have feelings? That's a question which sometimes comes up in discussions about narcissists. It's a question which perplexes me every time someone asks it, because in my experience of the narcissists in my life, our interactions and relationships have always been about their feelings. Your feelings don't matter. Your feelings are never as... Continue Reading →

SYW: Cracking Christmas Nuts

This time of year used to stir up a patchwork of stressful memories for me. Those fragments of recollection would depress me and I felt out of sync with all the merriment around me. All I wanted for Christmas was to crawl into a deep dark hole and wait for it all to be over.... Continue Reading →

Narcasm: Making Everyone Unhappy for the Holidays

Trusting a narcissist is one of those experiences which usually ends up with people swearing an oath to themselves never to trust anyone, including themselves, ever again. However there is one thing you can always trust a narcissist to do and that is to ruin the holidays for everyone. Even if you don't celebrate any... Continue Reading →

Ask A Capricorn Random Questions?

Why does everyone keep insisting that today is Sunday? Because it is... but is it really? Well it does seem to really be a sunny day, which is nice after the windy downpour we had all day yesterday... I was just about to take the tarp off the ark. Someone asked me if I'd seen... Continue Reading →

What To Say To Someone Who Always Disappoints You

This is one of those posts where I take a search term from my blog's stats and then write a bunch of stuff about it. This particular search term - What to say to someone who always disappoints you - stood out because I'm one of those someone's who always succeeds in disappointing people. How... Continue Reading →

Narcasm: Films about Narcissists

Can you remember the last film you watched? Did you love it or loathe it? What was it about? And what was it about it which made you want to watch it (and then maybe wished you hadn't done that)? Do you have a favourite movie? Why is it your favourite? Is it the story... Continue Reading →

Youniversity Challenge

Who are you and how do you know that's who you are? How did you react to that question - are you still reading or did you move on? Should I chase after all those who decided not to give this post a chance or should I focus my attention on you - you who... Continue Reading →

Narcasm: Giving Gifts to Narcissists

So it's Christmas, and you have a narcissist in your life who expects to get what they want or else... But what is it that they want? Do they want fame? Fortune? Eternal youth? Immortality? Attention? Everything? Well, yes... but even if you could give them all of that, there's probably something else they want... Continue Reading →

SYMW: When Life Gives You A Three Breasted Woman

It's that time of the year when we're supposed to be thinking about it being that time of the year... and what that means for us. Is it about endings or beginnings? Is it about what came before or what will come afterwards? Is it about giving or receiving? Is it about the glass being... Continue Reading →

Narcasm: A Series about Narcissists

Do narcissists know it's Christmas? Do they know this time of year isn't all about them getting what they want from others? And if they don't get what they want for Christmas, do they know that having a tantrum about it and then giving others the silent treatment punishment isn't really going to make them...
