Grey Sky

Filed Under: Book Related

I wish my camera worked. The sky right now is perfect grey - classic winter sky right before it spits sleet or snow at you. Last night I stayed up and read Stephanie Meyer's Midnight Sun partial draft. After writing about going to see the midnight release of the New Moon movie and now this, I'm sure ...

Roast Chicken Dinner

About a month ago, my friend Alana [HI, Alana! ] decided that I was going to see New Moon with her. On opening night. Alana really isn't one of those people you argue with and so I went online, bought my ticket and spent the next month stressing about how Tucker would handle the fact that ...

Nikon Before the Surgery

If you were following me yesterday on Twitter then you got to read me live tweeting my Nikon camera repair. Correction. You got to read about me shocking myself numerous times while I ripped into my Nikon. We've had this camera since 2005 and it's served us well but a couple of weeks ago, it just stopped working. ...

I Need Flexible Boobs

Filed Under: Life

Ollie's 14 months old now. He's been walking for months, nods his head "yes" and "no", beats up on his sister and does long division. OK. So the beats his sister up part isn't true... Anyway, one thing Oliver doesn't do is sleep through the night. He's normally in bed by 7 or 7:30 and then will ...

I Couldn’t Come Up with a Snazzy Title

Filed Under: Life

Am I the only person who still hasn't gotten the whole daylight savings time thing down? It just seems unnatural for it to be bright as noon when it's only 6am. Of course, once it's light outside, my children [who were apparently birds in a former life] are awake and loud and demanding breakfast and cartoons. So, ...

My Basket

Filed Under: Tech/Videos/Video Games

Any blogging "expert" will tell you that the key to blogging "success" is to write and write often. Based on my performance recently, I suppose I'm on the fast track to blogging failure. It's just that right now, I feel like I have this basket [mine's one of those old timey wicker affairs that I used to ...
