Cripes, TAG’ed again!

Monday, May 30th, 2005

This time byKirkKitsch. (Who, BTW has a freakin’ awesome blog. Check it out. I suspect he and I may be related or separated at birth or clones or sumpin’.) Total volume of music files on my computer: On my personal laptop: only 105. But on mine and BW’s iMac, which is our primary music server: […]

Time for a Break

Monday, May 30th, 2005

Tomorrow I leave for my biannual work-type meeting to be held at Penn State University. Four hours of riding up there with Flaky Boss, followed by two days of listening to librarians who take their jobs WAY too friggin’ seriously bitch, piss, and moan. I may post while I’m there, but it will probably be […]

Thanks Be to LOUP

Friday, May 27th, 2005

Books are good. FREE books kick ASS! And that’s what I got in the mail yesterday thanks to Loupy. Mary Stewart’s Merlin Trilogy is one of the few Arthurian novels I haven’t read, and I looked and looked and just couldn’t find it at any of the used book shops around here. I didn’t really […]

Let There Be Light

Thursday, May 26th, 2005

If you’ve been paying attention (and I wouldn’t blame you if you weren’t), you’ll recall that BW have been buying and installing a lot of new light fixtures for the house lately. Dunno why, really. I guess because it’s one home improvment project that shows great results fast, and isn’t too hard to do (according […]

Got Ewan?

Take The Ewan McGregor Test!

It’s Almost Memorial Day…

Toyz R We

Tuesday, May 24th, 2005

Meet my new toy obsession: Star Wars Galactic Heroes. They’re sooooo cyoooooot! They’re made for lil sprogs who’re too young to get real action figures, but I’ll tell ya, I like the Galactic Heroes better than the real figures! Just look at them, they’re so adorable and cuddly! They do such a bad job of […]

Weekend Workerbees

Monday, May 23rd, 2005

Had a very not-fun weekend full of home improvements. Originally, we’d planned to patch up all the crumbling cement of our front steps this weekend, but now we have the bird family living out there, and we didn’t want to keep Mom Bird scared away from her nest for the whole weekend. So, that project […]

Tag! I’m IT!

Friday, May 20th, 2005

So yesterday Loupy tagged me to share 15 things about me that you may not know. I’m a slacker, so I put it off till today. I feel like Loup did; I babble so much on here, what could you possibly not know? Here it is anyway: 1. I start every day by drinking a […]

Boring, boring, boring…

Thursday, May 19th, 2005

Another idea stolen from Loup. “List five things that people in your circle of friends or peer group are wild about, but you can’t really understand the fuss over. To use the words of Caesar (from History of the World Part I), ‘Nice. Nice. Not thrilling . . . but nice.’ Ok, here’s mine: 1. […]

You Are Catwoman “Life’s a bitch. Now so am I.” What Superheroine Are You?

Birth Announcement

Tuesday, May 17th, 2005

That chickadee who took up residence in our not-really-a-birdhouse birdhouse decided to stick around after all. Some time in the past 2 or 3 days, her eggs hatched! Now when we go out of our front door, we can hear all the cyooot little peeps! Awww. We’re leery of freaking the mom bird out though, […]

What’s Up?

Monday, May 16th, 2005

Not a helluva lot. Pretty boring weekend. BW was away working on his cycle, so I was (insert McCauley Culkin face) home alone. I had a coupon for Borders, so BW dropped me there on his way out of town and I picked up some books, but they didn’t have anything from my Amazon wish […]

Ma’ biz-naz

Friday, May 13th, 2005

Some people have been asking me whatever happened with that possible offer of full-time work that I had, so here’s the update. At this point, it looks like my boss and I have reached a compromise. I will be adding about 10 hours to my week, but not going totally full-time. He is out of […]

JRM Has Left the Building

Thursday, May 12th, 2005

The JRM Elvis movie wrapped up last night. The movie was extremely shallow (how can you cover almost the whole life of E in under 4 hours?), and fairly sanitized because it was approved by the Presleys…but man o man that JRM!!! He was perfect. And does that boy ever know how ta work it! […]

Doesn’t Anybody Know How to Make Short Movies Anymore??

Wednesday, May 11th, 2005

Diss Ed Wood all you like, but the man consistently brought in his flix at under 90 minutes long. It’s not that I have anything against long movies, hell I argued that at approx. 4 hours ROTK still was missing all the good parts. I do have something against movies that are long when they […]

Happy Birthday Simon

Tuesday, May 10th, 2005

Do what you want Cos I’ll do anything And I’ll take the blame What’s mine is yours You can have all of it And I learn to beg Oh, the boys on the radio They crash and burn They fold and fade so slow In your endless summer night I’ll be on the other side […]

Family Friendly

More Breeders in the Neighborhood Of the cute variety! Seems like some of the many chipmunks who live in the retaining wall behind our house are actually CHICKmunks, because today we saw two baby chipmunks foraging outside with their moms! They’re so cyooooot! So tiny with their itty-bitty tails, and wittle ears, and totally miniscule […]

Super Duper! (2005 Edition)

Saturday, May 7th, 2005

“Tryin’ hard to look like Gary Cooper (SUPER DUPER!)” They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Then rather than repeat whatever I wrote last year, consider this my 4,000-word blathering, worshipful essay on Gary Cooper. If you don’t find it moving, you may wish to seek medical attention, because you are most likely […]
