“Must Love Dogs”

We went to see “Must Love Dogs” today. DH thought I’d enjoy it and he was right, though I don’t know whether I laughed more or cried more. I could sooooooo relate to Sarah’s predicament and experiences. Thank Goddess MY family never staged a “dating intervention” like hers did — I don’t think I could …

Time for a little break!!!

Woohoo!!! My summer term grades are turned in (in my usual slap-dash way) so I have until the 15th to relax and enjoy myself. However, the very first thing I did when I got home from turning in those grades was, yes, take a nap, LOL. I didn’t even really NEED the nap; I just …

It happens in this country, too…

We watched PrimeTime the other night, as John QuiƱones did another story about the fundamentalist Mormon sect on the Arizona/Utah border. Very disturbing, especially in light of this not being the first broadcast story on the subject. It seems to be more and more in the news of late. Even People magazine recently had a …

Why I bother to take these things, I don’t know…

the Wit (56% dark, 34% spontaneous, 16% vulgar) your humor style: CLEAN | COMPLEX | DARK You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you’re probably an intellectual, but don’t take that to mean you’re pretentious. You realize ‘dumb’ can be witty–after all isn’t that the Simpsons’ philosophy?–but rudeness for its own …

Changes

We’ve spent the last week changing stuff around at home. Basically, we decided that I couldn’t really get my lampworking stuff set up in my current studio, plus it was a total disaster and the space wasn’t being well-used. So we have opted to make what was the studio (the larger of the two back …

Happy Anniversary to Us!

Today is our very first wedding anniversary. Originally we had thought about going to DH’s family’s reunion in Opelika, but last week we thought better of it. Who really wants to spend their VERY FIRST anniversary with a bunch of relatives/in-laws, most of whom you don’t know and they don’t know you? So instead we …

How Simple Can It Be?

We were in Barnes & Noble this afternoon, surprise surprise. As I looked through the “Last Chance” rack, I spied a glossy full-color cookbook entitled Simple Chocolate Step by Step. Um, excuse me, how simple can chocolate be? Unwrap Break off a piece Place piece in mouth Savor slowly and contemplatively

A Little Late-Evening Excitement

Tonight we were comfortably ensconced on the bed reading. Just before ten, we started to hear voices outside. Shortly after, a large Something drove past, stopped, and backed up. We looked out to find a FIRE ENGINE parked outside our front door :-O! We didn’t smell smoke or anything, but naturally we wanted to know …

Just Not Right

I just haven’t felt right the last couple of days. Bleah. Yesterday I was okay in the morning up at the ‘Bou, but then got shaky before we got to lunch. IHOP was just claustrophobically crowded, which didn’t help. Aunt Mary wasn’t in (she was at the ER at Emory, it turns out) so we …

Showoff!

It’s “first Friday” so it’s Art Night at the ‘Bou. Last Art Night I was the only one there, so I sent an email to see if anyone else was going to be there. Otherwise I was going to stay home and torch! But Beeskneez said she’d come if I’d come, so we met there. …
