D’Oh! New Interviews Posted

Gosh, I got behind in reposting Still Life with Interviews. I have a new one from November and the most recent one posted now. I’m sorry about that!

Loot Review

*As a disclaimer, I am trying to continue with the normal, mundane posts, even though my every thought is on the other side of the world. If you are thinking I am insensitive for continuing the grand tradition of stupid blog posts in the face of tragedy, well, might I suggest CNN.com. I cannot undo […]

Last of the Year

We’ve officially started making note of the “lasts” of 2004. This morning, I pumped gas for the last time in 2004 (unless I decide to make a run for it and road trip hundreds of miles from here between now and Friday. I mean, it could happen, but probably won’t. The last paycheck of 2004 […]

Tsunami Relief Efforts

From here, the best we can do is donate money to the organizations that can best get to the areas that need the most help and supplies. I personally chose to donate to Doctors Without Borders, which narrowly edged out the International Red Cross. I think either of these are worthy. If nothing else, my […]

Short Week

2nd short week in as many, and I’m already getting depressed that we have to wait a whole year to hit the holiday/days off season again. I mean, from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, we’re flush with holidays. I love it. Live for it. I’m in the post-holiday “oh my God, I have nothing to […]

Happy Purse Day

Ahhh, Sunday Morning. I keep thinking it’s Monday, and I’m guessing I’m not the only one. I am sitting here resisting the uncontrollable urge to go to the mall. I want to take advantage of the sales, but I don’t want to have to take Junior with me, as he hates shopping and the whole […]

Merry Christmas!

Yes, I’m sad it’s over. It really did sneak up this year. But in another way, I’m glad it’s over. You know, I won’t dwell on it too much. I was looking to see if we had any Kahlua around here. Is that too much to ask?

You Want to Look Evil in the Face?

I do an evil gift exchange with a group of friends I’ve had for something like 10 years now. Many moons ago we started a tradition we like to call “Secret Satan”. It involves sending something evil instead of nice for a Christmas present. You know, every time you’re out and you think “God, you […]

Happy Festivus

It’s December 23rd – Festivus! Feats of strength will happen later this afternoon, when I try to open the child-proof cap on my Advil. And it is now time for the airing of grievances: To Blog Spammers – I hate you. I detest you. You are the stuff on the ground in the parking lot […]
