Kindergarten Wisdom

We've all heard this a million times but it resonates. In life, if you don't act like a big baby, you don't have problems--until other people around you start acting like big babies.Kindergarten Wisdom I am drinking a smoothie made out of blueberries, swiss chard, almond milk, two dates, and a frozen banana. It's lunch. This summer I want to try using watermelon in a smoothie and see how that works out. No one ever does that.…See More

Chicken Soup with Hormones (and Antibiotics)

I remember a children's book (from my youth) called Chicken Soup with Rice. Some activist could do one called Chicken Soup with Hormones (and Antibiotics) since everyone is so concerned about the use of those things. Wait, the RBGH is just for cows. That's the stuff that Europe and Canada don't use, but USA does. Chickens have breasts but not that they nurse with. We don't need to make chickens lactate more. We have so much control over everybody in the animal kingdom, it's ridiculous. What if…See More

Breaking Bad

I am feeling sorry for all the characters on this show. Even the monsters. Sometimes especially the monsters. TV has changed a lot since I grew up with The Waltons.Binge-watching lately. Until I dissolve into the couch. Started covering my eyes when it gets too gory.See More

Life in the Woods

It's so dramatic living in an old house the woods, what with fighting off all the vermin. You have squirrels, mice, rats in the house, and/or garage, and/or attic, and you try everything possible to evict them--and too keep them from tearing down all your insulation, gnawing all the value out of your property before they leave. I always think that if my cat were the size of a mountain lion, she would be terrifying and I'd put her out. Thank God rats and mice are just pea-brained little vermin.…See More

Almost Time to Tiptoe through the Tulips

Spring is:a. hereb. something that accidentally falls out of a ballpoint pen causing you to step erratically (and, in fact, careen) across the kitchen into a scalding pot of fondue, which topples and pours lava-cheese all over your lace dressing gown, melding pearl necklace to a regrettable glob, and inflicting third degree burns (very serious) on your arms that require immediate professional medical intervention and a six-week stay at the County nursing home.c. all about the hormones.d. when…See More

Death of the Computer Guru who Saved Angels Carry the Sun from Oblivion

A friend needed computer help, so I was about to refer him to a fine and generous acquaintance of mine, Jimmy Woolsey, but found out shortly thereafter that Jimmy had passed away five months ago. I am saddened, and will just mention briefly that Jimmy once spent an entire day of his life teasing my half-done novel off a dying hard drive (my back up discs were apparently unformatted!) and asked for not a cent in remuneration. I insisted on paying him with a mushroom pizza, at least, because I…See More

Is Today Bad Luck or Valentine's Day?

Well, I don't know, it could be bad luck as:a.) pertaining to icy logs pried from the bottom of a wood pile.b.) men who travel in packs speaking of unknowable thingsc.) long words, words that travel in packs, words that sharpen themselves on adjectives that are always looking for a fightd.) lucky as in charms, made of marshmallows, and edible only for those under the age of fourteene.) lucky icy logs keeping us hot in the middle of another endless winterf.)

Haven't Written a Poem in Ages, Don't Care

Well, That's okay.I have written in the novel a bit. Holidays over so was able to get back to it. I'm listening to the depressing news a bit , and reading it some. Right now I'm watching Mick Jagger sashay across a stage in a documentary called Crossfire Hurricane. I love The Stones. You gotta admire their staying power. It's so cool when a few generations can say they grew up with a band.I want to join the Rolling Stones. Yes, I do.Very decent of Keith Richards to put the band ahead of…See More

Memory and Addiction

I was just reading about how addicted rats will start taking cocaine again in experiments when their hippocampi are activated. Just the memory of the pleasurable drug experience gets them going again. We can't give people a "forgetting" medication though because it interferes with motivation for more adaptive kinds of pleasure-seeking. This all sort of reminds me of that one movie I liked, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, in which everyone was getting a scientific treatment done in order…See More

Titillating Titles

Venus and her Caffeine Fix rather than Crown of Thorns? Nah. I always think that even though I don't drink coffee, maybe I should start. . . .Got some writing in tonight. I try to write whatever I wish other people would write but don't. In that way I manage to please myself. . . .It's a happiness factory of sorts. www.phoebewilcox.com ;See More

Toddler Talk

You can overhear weird things in a laundromat. For instance, parents making weird threats to their kids--things you know they have no intention of carrying out. Like "I'm going to beat you right here." That's nonsense. I've never seen a parent beat a kid in a crowded laundromat. Even one that had just insisted they were going to. When my kids were little I probably made threats I had no intention of carrying out--nothing too harsh, but still. . . . Sometimes a parent will say anything to just…See More

Big Sur

My sister just got back from a few days camping in Big Sur. Said it's so beautiful it's surreal. I want to take the kids there someday. Apparently, the further in you go in (they did a 10 mile run), the prettier it gets. She said there were bees everywhere and it smelled like candy. …

LOL! Maybe my NEXT mansion will be in Beverly Hills. :) My mom worked all over -- Warrington, Doylestown... Bristol? I think she had some sort of training (as a caseworker) in Perkasie. Ah, PA... Don't ask me why. But, the old Pennsauken Mart and Cherry Hill mall (NJ) just leaped into my head. Get out!!
