Hello Out There

Sorry, didn’t mean to leave you in the lurch for the past few days. I’m sure you were able to find other ways to fill the one minute of the day you usually spend here, so for that, I am thankful. If you did spend a lot of time just sitting at the computer and […]

Any Good Movies Playing?

I was just thinking how sad it is that there aren’t any big splashy movies opening this weekend… Hey, on that topic, have you checked out [Grocery] Store Wars yet? VERY funny, very well done. I can’t imagine what they are going to be charged by their hosting company for all the people who will […]

Well, THAT is Expensive

The sunroom guy came out today, to measure stuff, show pictures, and give us a quote. And what a quote it was! Holy crap, I really really really want this room, but the quote was about 6000 more than the ballpark price that was 4000 higher than I’d hoped. So for those of you who […]

Horribly Unpopular

Getting in on a web meme a few billion years late, I just visited NameVoyager and started poking around to see trends in names. My name? Not even in the top 1000 baby names (for boys or girls) in 2003. Not with any spelling. It peaked in the 70’s, being 174th most popular name for […]

Ear Worm

I have a ridiculous ear worm stuck in my head right now. And because I love all of you, and to punish you for not working harder to make me the Voice of My Generation, I am going to share it with you. “I Like ‘Em Big and Stupid” by Julie Brown. And no, I […]

To celebrate 12 years of wedded bliss (*snort*) yesterday, we all went bowling. And because it was a special occasion, we didn’t go to our typical candlepin bowling alley (for the rest of the country – those are the little balls, three per-frame), no indeed, we went to Gardner Ten Pin. And as I flung […]

Another One Bites the Dust

7:30 on a Sunday night…isn’t that just the worst time of day of the whole week? Enough time for you to think “What can I squeeze in before I have to go to bed” and not enough time to actually do something. And so it goes, another weekend spirals down the drain. Wheeeeeeee! Yesterday was […]

Game Girl

I’m off to work a game book at the elementry school’s lawn party today. The weather is questionable…I’m hoping that I’ll be inside somewhere because spending the next two hours standing outside in the dank air doesn’t thrill me. But it’s only two hours, and Mr. Crunchy’s wife (Mrs. Crunchy?) is doing the Avon Walk […]

No Offers Yet

Nobody from Hollywood has called regarding my show idea from yesterday. I wonder what the problem is?

My Brain Leaves a Vapor Trail

I thought I’d illustrate for you how my brain jumped from topic A to topic Z. I know this happens to other people, but I’m not here to talk about other people, am I? Okay, so in the car this morning, WXLO interviewed a comedian who I guess had some connection to the show “This […]
