When I decide to throw calorie counting to the winds, I like to do it in a highly visible, extremely obnoxious fashion. I bring you: karaoke night at our favorite divey karaoke bar from back in the day. Similar to the monthly coffee date, last night was a wonderfully long walk down memory lane, in… Continue reading get brunked…old school style
So. I had this bright idea. I have a crockpot, right? Like, put in the food and kind of just let dinner cook itself. So I thought to myself, hey! Why don't I start actually cooking dinner? I can use this handy crockpot! Oh! I know! I'll come up with a whole week's worth of dinners, go… Continue reading crockpotting is easy right? no. just…no.
Today's TBT picture has nothing to do with the post, but everything to do with how much I love my son! This picture is from when he was seven, and he's so cute I just can't stand it. Today's Throwback Thursday post is brought to you by your friendly neighborhood HMO. Indeed, I blog… Continue reading throwback thursdays (vol. 9): doorknockers
As you may know, I work in IT. As in, Information Technology. As in, I should know a little something about computers. Unfortunately, I don't. When people find out that I work in IT, the first thing they ask is, "Oh, can you help me with this computer problem I'm having" or "Come over and… Continue reading being in IT does not make me good at computers
Yet another Google search I can't recommend: sunburns on the butt. Why was I googling this, you ask? Because today's blog post has to do both with a sunburn experience when I was much, much younger than the older, wiser person I am today, and the ferocious sunburn I achieved this last weekend while hanging out… Continue reading a sunburned ass? well, not this time at least.
I'd love to report that day 1, what with all the orange juice spills and stickiness of skirt was just an anomaly and that I returned to a manageable level of craziness thereafter...but no. Today is day 2, and already I've lost a toenail and...BURNED MYSELF WITH MY CURLING IRON FOR THE THIRD TIME. I… Continue reading And day 2 was no better
Well. I am writing this as I am a scant 3.5 hours into this trip and already I've had a spectacularly messy 2N travel first. As usual, I couldn't keep my eyes open during takeoff and snoozed my way happily to 10,000 feet, at which point the flight attendant came by: did I want anything… Continue reading off to a just wonderful start (/sarcasm)
I re-read this today and cracked up. Poor Lawnboy. How does one explain that one isn't interested, in a way that salvages both your self-respect and their ego? Answer: run recklessly and with wild abandon through your house, away from the front door where the poor lawn boy is waiting to just get a moment… Continue reading throwback thursdays (vol. 5): of lawn boys and stalkers
So check this out. I have like, a million years of blogs. On this site alone I have over 200 posts, and since I finally got my blogs downloaded from MySpaz and I'm adding them here, I will soon have more. Doesn't it seem like I'm obligated to take a walk down memory lane once in… Continue reading throwback thursdays (vol. 1): not just for facebook
I am perfectly ashamed of myself. As mentioned on my birthday post, I had the most horrific thing happen to me a couple years ago and never blogged about it. To explain: Back when BandGeek and I lived in Tacoma, we were living in an older house (built around 1930) with a below-ground basement. One… Continue reading poo rising
