Why do people care so much about other people's hair? The other day, I got my hair done, as many people do every so often, and suddenly I became worthy of being fawned over. I didn't change my makeup, or my clothes, or my personality, or anything, just freshened up my hairstyle. People are always … Continue reading Just a little girl-talk about hair…
From time to time someone will pop into your head and you wonder whatever happened to them. And then you google them. Yes, you do, don't deny it. Memory is like the studio of a dishonest photographer, cluttered with altered photos he will proudly show the ego--and half-developed ones that might have told the truth. … Continue reading Sort of memory of a sort of friendship.
.....I will be just fine. UPDATE: March 24, 2022. Two years. Still hearing it. Still hating it. Although less and less thank God. Dunno why I always remember the date of this post. I am sick right now. Would be funny if I had covid again exactly a year later. Am I fine? Probably not. … Continue reading If I never hear the words “social distancing” again…..
UPDATE: I totally forgot this part but it perfectly illustrates how the boss thinks of the associates. Let's say she doesn't like "John" (because John probably is over fifty-five and keeps his head down because he's, you know, working). She'll refer to all associates she doesn't like collectively as "the Johns." Isn't that nice? Many … Continue reading Meanwhile, at the ant farm…

Now, I'm supposed to be on a break but I have to share this with you because it's just too funny. During my check-in with my supervisor, she asked me what she could do to help me further my career goals. We are on very friendly terms and have a good rapport, so it's a … Continue reading Aaahahahahahahahaha
I decided that I've got to take a bit of a hiatus from here. It's not because of my job--despite making less money than if I were to volunteer, my job is fairly decent right now. I would never allow my job the satisfaction of getting in the way of my blog. I just can't … Continue reading Need to take a break.
Yes, friends, on this very day the micropimple blog known as "Who the Hell Knows?" turns two years old. I try to avoid looking at my actual blog as much as possible so I'm not actually certain whether the title has a "?" or not at the end. Let me know. (Apparently it does have … Continue reading “Who the Hell Knows?” turns 2
I deleted the Reddit off my phone.* There was a bridge too far for me which prompted this, and I wrote out a whole screed as to why I did this, but it was very political. And I hate talking about politics. When I tell people that, (if they know) they say "But I thought … Continue reading I finally did something intelligent…
I wanted to say something profound about the past year, about all my accomplishments and wisdom; or, more characteristically of me, about all my miseries and failures; but really I can barely remember the year. I had Covid and wrote some stories. Tonight I just want to close the book softly and lay it aside … Continue reading Goodbye 2021…
Just a self-indulgent blogger life ramble post, comments disabled so you can feel free to skip. I have nothing left to give, I'm bled dry, I can do nothing but whine. I mean this in the gentlest way possible but I don't want your sympathy, I'm no more important than a whoopee cushion... A whoopee … Continue reading Three days before Christmas

A story I. It is early spring. Sunbeams and a soft breeze drift through the open window and settle on my quilt. Last night’s cup of chamomile tea is half-empty and ice cold. The tea is not the only thing in the room that’s cold. I have just awakened. I lie in bed in the … Continue reading I Never Made Lunch For Mother.
[I'll get the update crap out of the way quick. At the outset of November, I was hoping to achieve a revision of a work-in-progress, but I quickly realized that it would necessitate a change from third-person perspective to first. While a big project, I wasn't daunted or disappointed--it's just big. I made a lot … Continue reading Addicted to a waste of life.
Howdy! If you're sick of all the Thanksgiving GIF's, enjoy a commercial break by reading a rant from a retail worker during one of the most hellish weeks of the year! It's gonna get ugly. First, can't really report any good news on my editing project. During this time of year in retail, pretty much … Continue reading We’re overdue for a retail rant!
