Ruminating on rumination

I had all four wisdom teeth taken out last Tuesday. The recovery period is longer than I would have hoped or even imagined. One thing I am really fighting against is my inclination towards self-diagnosing. I am a hypochondriac, self-diagnosed (LOL). Usually when I get sick, it's symptoms I've had before so I know what… Continue reading Ruminating on rumination

What’s in a name? I don’t know, Shakespeare, you tell me!

  Sometimes I wonder whether Cake & Cows is too limiting of a blog name for me and my writing. I've created - albeit a very minuscule one - a brand for my online "presence." Most days, I like it. I am just as crazy and whimsical as the name would suggest. That dressing up… Continue reading What’s in a name? I don’t know, Shakespeare, you tell me!
