Okay, I have been tagged!

Tagged - I have been tagged - and yes, it does sort of feel like being picked for the team at kickball!



Five things about me that you probably don't know:



1) I subscribe to the NewYorker - which I read only for David Sedaris and the cartoons, but pretend somehow that it makes me intellectual~



2) I am 'learning disabled' for lack of a better term - along with ADD, I have what is commonly called dysgraphia - or writing dyslexia. It is sort of like there is a disconnect… Continue

A new chance for Nerdfighter glory!

Nerdfighters, the Chicago Tribune has started a new contest with our name all over it!

The idea is to create a diorama involving the creative use of Peeps. Recreate a historical event, something from pop culture, anything. The only rule is that your box can't be any larger than a microwave, and it's not limited to Chicago nerdfighters, anyone from anywhere can participate.

The prize they give is $101, but the true prize would be Nerdfighter pride if one of our own won the…

So Sad, But So Cool

During the last few weeks, my roomate and I have been watching the series Cowboy Bebop. Normally I am ot a huge fan of anime, but I have loved this show ever since I first saw it when I was about 14 or so. Not only does this series have amazing music (the Seabelts are the best jazz band, or at least pretty close), but the characters are deep and the story is amazingly sad. It brings out the importance of camaraderie and belonging. Many times it…

Five Things

Ann tagged me, so here are five things you may not know about me:



1. I've been a vegetarian since I was 14. Back then it was more about the ethics than it is now, but it's always been partly because I'm a picky eater.



2. I hate onions in all forms except those where their texture is impossible to discern.



3. I like to curse.



4. I had LASIK a few years ago and no longer wear glasses or… Continue

BAM!! I'm tagged...

1) My hands are genetically reccessive. All that really means is my pointer finger on both hands are shorter than my ring fingers on both hands. If I were to be a man, I would be dominant. I have no idea why that is, Star and Taggart did not tell me.

2) I have quite a few neoplasms. Don't feak out! they are only moles.

3) I acctually like to cook, bake, and knitt. And I don't like it when people ask if I plan to be a housewife.

4) I am a little freaked out by the thought…

Breastfeeding issues

Well, I'm trying to wean Benjamin from Breast Feeding (the 7th of Feb was his 1st birthday) and it's hard. I'm trying to cut it to just before nap time/bed time . Sometimes he will just cry until I let him feed but I am making headway.

Glossary!

Yesterday I took a day trip with some friends down to Victoria, which was INCREDIBLY fun.

However, this blog post is not about how awesome it was. It's about the Glossary we began constructing during brekkie at Smitty's while we were being badserviced. So, in no perticular order I give you a list of words and terms you should be familiar with (complete with examples, where necessary!)

I wuz tagged!

Okay, PogoFONG tagged me a long time ago, and I'm finally going to respond. Hmm, is this supposed to be five things that most of you don't know about me, or five things that most friends and/or acquaintances don't know about me? Well, maybe it will be a mix...



  1. Many people don't know that although Ed and I have been married for 26 years, I had been married before, when I was too young to know better! Thankfully, there…

Awesomeness #3

1. 3 blog posts in one day, and only one of them was complaining!

2. My friends have been supportive beyond all measure, and I love them very much.

3. I rang my boss to get the day off, (Wee bit short notice) and couldn't get through to her, so rang 2nd in command, who was like "Of course you need to go, we'll cover it, no problem. And if you're too tired on Wednesday, don't come in." See 'Awesomeness #1' for how much I love those guys.

4. I bought an X-Box 360, and got…

WorldSuck Being Decreased!



To my made-of-awesome nerdfighter friends



My own personal philosophy: Temporarily increasing one's own personal suck levels can decrease the overall worldsuck levels. Last week I told you that while my friends aren't here every Sunday I go out and take a walk. Well this week my family needed a few things from the store so I just thought I'd pick them up on the way. Biggest problem: This was NOT a nice day in February! Windy...like holy fuggin whoa windy. I… Continue

TH in Montreal

Last night I went to the Tokio Hotel concert in Montreal. Although the venue wasn't all that big, it was awesome. I feel that it was better that way. Was a lot more personal. Amongst the chanting of "tokio hotel' with a french accent, I couldn't believe that I was seeing my all time favoutite band LIVE. I was super excited. It's amazing how music can make you forget about "all the sh** going on out there" (Bill, Tokio Hotel). Thinking about the concert and the fact that they've come all the…

Dartmoor National Park is made of Awesome

Yesterday was also awesome! We had a road trip to gather resources for the Church Easter club, but we also went to Dartmoor in search of snow, unfortunatly it hasn't been cold enough for any of the white stuff, but we had great fun climbing up Sheepstor instead and lounging about like lions on pride rock! We played a very fun game where you lie on your back on the top of a tor and let your head fall backwads so you can see everything upsidedown, for some reason its reeaaaly freaky! Maybe its…
