    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    I'm thinking it's a summer tanager that is molting...I keep looking for it again, but haven't seen him yet.

    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    Trying to identify a solid yellow bird in my area. It's not a warbler, it's not a goldfinch..am thinking it's some sort of canary that is traveling through here?

    I have the Full Panic and Obsessed! They are both GORGEOUS.

    I have the two loudest Pat M colors, and they really do last forever, but I feel like if I'm not very careful with application, I look like my mouth has shifted on my face. I could paint a whole mouth on my cheek and with those lipsticks, it would look REAL. Very strange. I'm not going to airbrush my face off, and yeah...I'm like kair. My sensitive skin would probably burn off if I used something like that. I was just very intrigued by how orange and blurry everyone looked in the infomercial.

    I recently found myself watching an infomercial for airbrushed foundation at 4 in the morning. And yes, the women looked strangely blurred....and yes, their color was weird. But I was transfixed. I'm not going to buy it, but man, I wanted to airbrush my face off.

    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    I like birds quite a lot, and am a passable amateur birder. I wish I could shape-shift into a shoebill stork and bite the heads off my enemies. I also really love owls. I think I would make an awesome great horned owl. I would just rip the scalps off all the people who annoy me in meetings. (Can you tell the kind of day I'm having??)

    Yeah...there have been times when I've avoided getting some help just because I don't want to have to deal with finding someone. I have a decent person who can help if and when I need it, but when she retires, I'm going to be in trouble. Helena...yeah. It's time for you to do something. And you know this or you wouldn't have posted what you did. I'm so sorry; I wish I could give you a big ol' hug. Take care of you. <3

    My favorite is when I buy something for the body I had 10 years ago. I have 'almost' stopped doing that.

    Oh, my gosh - me too. I cannot stop watching their ads on Facebook. Never mind that the models are all of 17, and have perfect skin and cheekbones. I have forced myself not to buy anything. FB has figured out that I have a beauty aid problem. I'm trying to show them that I am disciplined and their stupid ads aren't going to work on me anymore.

    Thank you, my friend. I have been talking to my AA sponsor and am having to do some serious work on it, which is a good thing. I've been putting it off, but it's time. But I am totally going to hug the dog. He hates it when I do that, but he will get over it.

    Am I the only one getting sucked in by the ads on Facebook? So far, I have bought the Wander on the glow stick - in two colors. I love this thing. I also picked up the selfie powder by Wonder. I have no idea why these two companies are so closely named, but they're both very good. The selfie powder does away with shine and looks awesome.

    Thank you so much, XRay. I'll be honest; and this is the only place and you are the only people I've said this to - I'm struggling. I'm happy, love my life, love my relationship, but I'm having problems shaking the ghost of my ex-husband. Some of you know - I divorced him after 20+ years of marriage. He was mentally ill, unstable, abusive. I have some guilt. Still. It's actually a good bit of guilt. Because I'm happy, have moved on, and he's still struggling. I think he's better - on medication, and taking better care of himself now. Even our daughter says I had no choice and did what I had to do. I have never asked her; she volunteered this. I don't understand why I feel this way. I didn't do anything wrong but try to survive. I dream about him, and in my dreams I'm afraid of him, I feel sorry for him, and ultimately am so glad I'm out of it. I guess it's because I'm coming up on two years since he moved out. I don't ever ask about him or hear much about him...but I still think about him, and pray for him. I may go back to Al-Anon. That really helped me see how egotistical it is to think I can control or cure someone...I dunno. It's just annoying as hell.

    Lots of love and hugs to all of you. <3 Datepalm, your post resonated with me. This sounds exactly like what my mother has done and does. I love her dearly, but I'm still slightly pissed about the Nancy Drew books she tossed without even asking me if I wanted them. I mean, all of them. My daughter has a bunch that she didn't want, so I have those, but it's not the same. And I feel like a whiner even mentioning this, but I immediately thought of it when I read your post. The woman is awesome in so many ways, so I just let this one go. I'm in a very good place these days. But what's odd and strange to me is how a song, a smell, or a situation can take me back to a few years ago when I was in a terrible place. I had a situation come up recently where a person reminded me of some really bad times I went through during my divorce and all of the fear, anxiety, depression jumped right back on me. It took a few weeks for me to shake it off. I am avoiding that person actively now.

    Podcasts and Organizing them

    I listen to podcasts constantly. My faves are - The Black Tapes - it's coming back in Sept. and I cannot wait. Really good stuff. Creepy and awesome. Am listening to Tanis in the meantime and it's just okay. Jim Harold's Campfire - people call in and tell their ghost stories/ufo encounters, etc. Very entertaining, although there are times when I have to fast forward through it because the person calling in is a moron. You Must Remember This - all about old Hollywood. Lots of history and little known facts as well as juicy gossip. If you're a fan of the golden age of Hollywood and old movies, it's the cat's meow. TED Radio Hour - inspirational, science, technology, engineering, design stuff. (obviously) Hello From the Magic Tavern - one of my favorites. Comedy by an improv group from Chicago that's a riff on Lord of the Rings - it's hysterically funny at times and just goofy others, but always fun. Lore - I think everyone knows about this one. It's creepy history. I dig it. Unexplained - A lesser version of Lore but still good. Up and Vanished - it was sooooo good. Followed this disappearance in Ocilla, GA and it was fantastic. S-town - another small town southern gothic type based on real people. This one is disturbing, and heart-breaking. I tried Welcome to Night Vale but couldn't get into it.
