Job Hunt Status Report

To everyone who said the job market would improve if we went to war: Ptbtbtbtbtbbtb. Actually, I found a job listing today and I think I’d be perfect for the job. I have the right background, and I know they’d be happy hiring me. I just hope that my resume stands out against all the […]

Hot Pagan Buns

Oh MAN is that going to get me some Google hits or what???! Actually, the topic is hot cross buns, and their origins. I bought some yesterday, because as Catholics we need to have a “food” other than the Communion wafer. I’ve always been jealous that many Jewish holidays have specific foods associated with it. […]

Embrace the FACE

Okay, I just saw a sign for the new specialty license plates. To hell with the Cape and the Islands one, or even the one we used to have with the kiddie drawings on it. Now I can get one with a smiley face! I am SO going to save up for this! All you […]

Beverage Report: Coffee and NectarFizz

Man, what would we do without coffee? I remember back when I didn’t like the taste of it…but when did I cross that line from not liking it to liking it? I know I didn’t drink it in college, I was more of a Diet Coke kind of person. I actually wasn’t a caffeine fan. […]

Ty the Tasmanian Tiger

We took an Animal Crossing break (well, *I* didn’t want to, but hey, you know how it is) and went back to playing Ty the Tasmanian Tiger again. You know, sometimes you just need a break once in a while to open up your eyes. That and cheat codes. Okay, yes, we did a cheat […]

That Awards Show

I don’t want the people running the Awards tonight to hunt me down for trademark abuse, so I’ll just call it That Awards Show. I have no predictions. I have strong opinions, but as has been the case for the past couple of years, I haven’t seen all the movies. I’m lucky I’ve seen ANY […]

Another Day, Another Quarter

Junior and I are just kind of hanging out today. He’s already done some playing outside (riding on his scooter…his bike is way too small now but we haven’t figured out when we’re going to go out to buy a new bigger one. He has some birthday money (from January) coming from Grandma, so that […]

Why Are You Reading This?

If it’s New England and you are reading this during the day on Sunday, why on earth are you in the house?
