Not Dead Yet!

I haven’t giv­en up on this blog, either. Or even the long-mis­s­ing pod­cast! I don’t know why I haven’t post­ed in so long, hon­est­ly. I’ve been in a very qui­et time, but it’s time to leave the shell. I have had more health prob­lems, and I’m on more med­ica­tions now. I’ve added a wheel­chair to the […]

To Clarify

Last night’s entry is not an indi­ca­tor of any dra­ma hap­pen­ing. In fact, it’s part of ward­ing off dra­ma. If I don’t speak up about being tired of “talk­ing about the relationship(s)” or what­ev­er, I’ll even­tu­al­ly explode, and that WILL be dra­mat­ic. Yes, hav­ing two pri­maries requires far more com­mu­ni­ca­tion, nego­ti­a­tion, and so on than hav­ing one. […]

I Am a Bad Poly Person

About all I had to say in our fam­i­ly ther­a­py ses­sion tonight is that I’m tired of talk­ing. I’m tired of seri­ous con­ver­sa­tions. I’m tired of plan­ning projects. I’m tired of pro­cess­ing, inter­pret­ing, mirroring—all of it. I’m just tired. The next time some­one says, “Com­mu­ni­cate, com­mu­ni­cate, com­mu­ni­cate” to me, I’m all too like­ly to rec­om­mend that he […]


I hate writ­ing some­thing and not get­ting a response. I’m more inter­est­ed in dia­logue than mono­logue. Sam says that my writ­ing voice is very author­i­ta­tive, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult for peo­ple to respond. In fact, he said the style is con­fronta­tion­al, “not leav­ing the door open for any­one else to sug­gest any­thing else.”  Wow. That’s news to me. […]

Good Day

shad­owkatt and I spent much of our day at Three-13 Spa, Salon & Bou­tique, for both pam­per­ing and legit­i­mate school research (for me). For the small group com­mu­ni­ca­tions class project, the girl took many cool pic­tures. I inter­viewed four peo­ple. One more vis­it should be plen­ty, but we have to man­age to get all four team […]

The Good and the Bad

The good: Method clean­ers rock. I rock for find­ing and buy­ing them. So there. I bought a basic array of Method prod­ucts and left them for the maids to use this week. Not only did the prod­ucts work well, the maids real­ly, real­ly liked them. And the house smelled not just clean but GOOD. No Pine […]

Project Suggestions?

Yes, I knew that I could­n’t pos­si­bly get through a class called Small Group Com­mu­ni­ca­tions with­out endur­ing a group project. There are two. And they make up the vast major­i­ty of our grades. I would­n’t take the class if it weren’t required for the degree. The first project involves watch­ing a small group inter­act, in […]

Navel Gazing

How do I rec­on­cile treat­ing peo­ple with respect with enjoy­ing snark­ing at them when I think it’s deserved? Damn. I’m not sure that I can. Do I have to give up the snark? It’s pos­si­ble that I should always com­mu­ni­cate with ozar­que’s guide­line about nobody los­ing face in mind. Hmph. There are times when this whole […]
