Category: I’m Cultured

For the first time in many years I hung out with someone in real life, just the two of us. My co-worker suggested an ice cream shop and she and I spent four hours there chatting. It was delightful. A year ago she was my desk-neighbor at work and I found her so unique in […]

The ’90s  is currently “in” now (this makes me feel very old) and I’m watching a series on Netflix series called The Nineties, produced by Tom Hanks. It’s quite good and I’m finding it really interesting watching the history of the 90’s as an almost 40-year-old, as it differs quite a lot from my perspective of […]

Do I remember the last time I got invited to a Halloween party? Or any type of party? Nope! Oh…I let it sink in how sad that is. Back to happy now: One of my coworkers left what looked to be a vintage hardback novel wrapped in twine on my desk. When I opened it […]
