tech and taxis

Here I am, in the back of a cab again, only this time heading to my hotel near the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana. I’m excited about this trip for several reasons, primarily because I’ve never been here before. and I’m taking a few personal days before the meetings that I’m actually here to…

2015: you can just SUCK IT

You guys, it’s basically three weeks into the new year and already I am SO OVER IT. Seriously. After everything with my grandma, now The Dog is missing. He got freaked out after the fireworks after the Seahawks playoff win (!) and took off Sunday night, hasn’t been seen or reported anywhere since. I’ve registered…

47 first world problems

Interesting topic from the other day (thank you Siv)…things I don’t like. Or, more accurately, things I hate. I do try to teach the Kid that we don’t HATE things, we just…strongly dislike them.

where are my plants?

There were rhododendrons, several trees, huge hydrangeas, and an enormous camellia tree in the front yard. It made me happy just to look out and see all the plants…

be honest…

Is it just me or does my nose look totally sideways in this picture? And is this how it looks IN REAL LIFE? AAAAAGH!   I mean, seriously, it’s been bugging me for weeks.

finding inspiration

You guys. It is soooooo much easier to write when your life is full of drama and angst. As you know I’ve been moving all my old blogs into this blog from my old MySpaz account, and along the way I’ve been getting lost in previous posts…as happens any time I end up browsing my…
