throwback thursdays (vol. 15): fourteen (that’s f-o-u-r-t-e-e-n) whole years.

October 8th marked my fourteen year anniversary with the company I work for. Let me say that again. Fourteen (14) year anniversary. I never in a million years thought that I’d work at a place this long, much less still feel as passionate about it and challenged today as I did fourteen years ago. Let’s

rambling friday update

Nothing much to say today, folks. The most exciting thing that happened today was checking my spam comments folder and receiving my new bed set! As you may know, I can’t help but read through my spam comments just in case something actual might have accidentally slipped in there. Being that I don’t usually get many comments,

TGIF (vol. 3): why shouldn’t i ask?

Today’s TGIF commentary was a Facebook re-post from Upworthy, regarding being snobby when you first meet someone: if you don’t feel like clicking, I’ll tell you. The question is: “So what do you do?” I’m sure the lady that wrote it, whoever posted it in my news feed on Facebook (I can’t remember now) was trying

throwback thursdays (vol. 14): generosity – in pictures, in blogs, in life. yep.

So, if you’re an actual person reading this blog (which is more rare than you’d think, actually), you may have noticed the decided lack of TBT posts recently. Which is partly because I’ve been a total slacker, and partly because even in 441 posts to date, there are only so many I think are worthy

i’m sooooooo dialed in now. you don’t even know.

My friends, I’m happy to report that I think I’ve found a solution to my blogging while mobile problem. That solution, appears to be… Dragon. So far, it’s a little bit frustrating, especially because I’m not used to dictating out loud. Also, I think I need a cheat sheet of all the commands that you

TGIF (vol. 2): leave me alone…wait, hold on.

Sooooo….this came up a few days ago in a google.   And…I didn’t hate all of it. Just some of it. Here’s the link. It talks about ways men can make women fall in love with them. It also brought to mind a song I was listening to just the other day that seems vaguely appropriate,

throwback thursdays (vol. 13): in honor of the Kid

This week being the Kid’s birthday, I thought I’d dredge up a post about he and I from way back. In the same spirit, today’s TBT picture is from waaaaay before I started blogging, in fact before he was born. Yes, that’s me. Yes, I’m pregnant. And yes, I’m in a Winnie the Pooh costume.

forget twitter for dummies…is there a ‘being funny for dummies’?

I feel like I’m so much funnier in real life. I subscribe to a bunch of blogs that frequently leave me giggling out loud, but I struggle so hard to come up with a witty-yet-meaningful comment that I paralyze myself into doing nothing. So, I’m pretty sure most of the people I follow think I’m
