How Could This Be True?

Why am I not finished with my Christmas shopping? I do not understand – I am usually better than this. I have people I need to buy things for that I will not see after Friday, so I have to get my royal butt in gear right away. I’m happy to hear we might see […]

Trash Truck Ballet

My desk at home is next to a window, which if you know me, is practically a need, not a want. I love looking out the window. This morning I was rewarded with a trash truck ballet, in which two different trash trucks slid and skidded and basically had no control. Ya, it’s slippery on […]

Wintery Mix

I only want a wintery mix if it involves peppermint candies and chocolate. Okay, that didn’t make a lot of sense, but I got tired of trying to think of something funny. Maybe I should not have said anything then? I’ll leave that up to you. I’m going to try to take a little movie […]

Anyone Else Want to Join Us?

So far one of last year’s Nano–ers has joined up to contribute over at the new and improved Nano Blog (2007 NaNoWriMo Rest Area). So what about the rest of you? Or some new people? I’ll just yammer like a crazy person with or without you, you know? In other news, it is FREEZING OUTSIDE! […]

Weather or Not, Here I Come

I like living in a non_parched and barren landscape as much as the next guy, but after a week of drizzle, I was DONE with it. If it’s going to rain, it should rain and be done with it. The endless misty drizzle just sucks. It’s not raining hard enough to use an umbrella, but […]

Wish You Were Here

Hi kids! Just popping in with a quick one so you won’t think I’ve fallen off the roof or anything. Up to my armpits in stuff to do, and BDT has suffered greatly. Let me just share with you then, that in the past couple of days I have gone to Canobie Lake Park, a […]

Identified Flying Object – Pool Party!

We had baseball games on Saturday and Sunday this week. The difference between Saturday’s sauna game (I thought I was going to pass out at one point – I can’t imagine how the boys in their polyester uniforms and knee socks handled it as well as they did) and Sunday’s wearing-three-layers in the drizzle game […]

You Really Need a Laptop and a Wireless Router

I’m sitting out on my deck, drinking a Coffee Coolatta, and I can’t think of a better way to spend the afternoon. Well, okay, I can think of a couple of better ways, but those cost money and involve being inside a mall. The breeze is what is making this a great afternoon to sit […]

A Thousand Freaking Degrees

I am working from home today because I HAVE A REALLY NICE BOSS [*waves*]. Except it’s about 95 degrees outside so I can’t even go play outside. I was going to buy some flowers and plant them but I do NOT like 94 degrees so I’m in the house, working. If Junior didn’t have a […]

Stormy Weather

Forgive the yelling, but the National Weather Service is all about the caps, and I am just copying and pasting. Just yesterday I was telling people that one of my biggest phobias is fear of bad weather. Driving in a thunderstorm can reduce me to tears. A tornado warning puts my blood pressure into the […]
