What day is it?

Geez, I had other things to do tonight, too. Like figure out if there’s a way to get the commenting software I use to open in a separate window (instead of below the entry). I think that might mean changing commenting software, though. I don’t have time to do that right now.

The Broke Diaries

Erin, a fan of The Broke Diaries left a comment in the previous entry because she was looking for a place to chat about that book, and the author is/was a fan of THIS site and it’s one of the links on the book site. I mean, that’s one of my very very favorite links, […]

Swiper, No Swiping!

Hey, did I remember to tell everyone that my 2.5 year old niece decided how my birthday cake should be decorated, and I am the only 38 year old with a Dora the Explorer cake? I think so!!!! The new license photo….eh. I’ve seen better and I’ve seen worse. The DMV child was a grumpy […]

Excellent. What a nail biter. (Actually, as I was typing this, ready to give up on the game, Oakland blocked the kick and ran it in. Wow, that’s some excellent football. I guess this means I can’t change the channel yet.) Too bad Shania had to go with the lip synching…Even my father was saying […]

Catch You After the Game…

Superbowl Sunday

Got my plans for tonight. This year is going to be much less exciting than last year, I mean, last year WE WON. That really improves the game boatloads. My contribution to the party at my sister’s house is chips and dip. Can you believe that until I called there might not have been any […]

Is This Thing On?

Zoinks, that virus/worm thingy really did a number on my DSL service earlier this morning. I think I’m back…at least for a little while, right? Sheesh, that was unpleasant. Oh, the angst! More angst, you say? Um, the only bottle of Diet Pepsi in the house is flat. FLAT I TELL YOU! I have a […]

You Want Angst? You Got It.

Here’s the note from the maker of my dish scrubby sponge: “Please be advised that the product you described has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this causes you.” Time to drink myself into a stupor. I can’t live without these scrubbies! DO YOU UNDERSTAND??!!!

Trendy and Popular

I decided I want to be trendy and popular today, so I’m going to jump into the fray and comment on the Bloggies. Those are awards giving out to blogs, sort of like the Emmy Awards, except Price Waterhouse isn’t in charge of the voting. They probably should be, given all the nonsense about them […]
