Let Me Let You In On A Little Secret…

You know all those great weblogs out there with deep and meaningful philosophical musings? Well I find them boring. Can’t plow through them. I could agree 100% with everything they say, but dammit, it’s not what I’m looking for when I go blog hopping. I want to be entertained. I want to smile. I don’t […]

Here’s the Little Dickens…

Standard Time

Ahhh, the best day of the year. The only thing missing is someone giving me presents. I just love the first day of Standard Time, what with the free hour of sleep. Mmmmm, good times. The weather is WAY better than I’d hoped, so the parade should be fun today. I’ll take my camera with […]

Googlism

Googlism : is a fun way to kill a few hours. I entered a bunch of stuff…and one of the things I entered was the word “Mookie”, which is what I used to call Junior (for those of you who haven’t been around since 1997). I figured maybe something about my kid would be in […]

8th Place

Cheat Codes

Am I teaching Junior the wrong things? I mean, am I being a bad mom for finding the cheat codes for games like Spyro so he’ll have 99 lives? He’s kind of young to be restricted to only 3 lives, y’know?

Whew!

It looks like someone may have hacked into blogger.com. It looks like (so far) the damage was minor. My content is all there, but one of the links points to a hacked page (not mine, on their site). I did immediately a) Go to my server and change my passwords, and b) download copies of […]

It’s Fry Day!

Another day, another happy chance for you to watch me. I put a picture of me over on the right…if you click it, I think it will open the page the way it’s supposed to. It may not, I mean, I’m trying as hard as I can. I also turn the camera off once in […]
