B-Day Pre-Day

Friday, March 30th, 2007

Their birthday is tomorrow, but since I don’t usually post on Saturdays I’m going to give an early ‘HUZZAH!’ to BW, and to his birthdate-sharing best celebrity friend (if they would only meet)/counterpart EWAN! So HUZZAH! I do so love my two Aries Scottish biker Gen-X geek boys. Did you know that Ewan and BW […]

Transformed!

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007

So if you remember a couple weeks ago I mentioned that we ripped up the carpets and painted the walls in our office. To finish the process, we also rearranged and put in some new furniture. The way the room was set up previously, we had our ugly old IKEA desk shoved into one corner, […]

I need a gay friend

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

To go to this with. The True Colors Tour!  With Cyndi Lauper and Erasure!! And proceeds will help the Human Rights Campaign (of which I am a member.)  I loooove Cyndi Lauper, and I adore Erasure! I would want to see either one of them separately, but together, wow! But, it’s not coming here to […]

The Television Gods are Merciful!!

Monday, March 26th, 2007

Finally! FINALLY!! Season 3 (AND 4) of Miami Vice have arrived on DVD! Praise be! Season 3 is my favorite; in S3 the show stopped just flirting with the idea of being a 1980′s film noir with neon, and really just grabbed the concept by the throat. Things take on an even darker, bleaker hue […]

Rip It Up

Tuesday, March 20th, 2007

That was what I did this weekend. BW and I have been putting it off and putting it off, but we finally hunkered down to rip the carpet out of the office. The carpet in our house is really new, and in good condition, but I hate it anyway. It’s just that boring fluffy beige […]

Change it Up

Monday, March 19th, 2007

You may have noticed that things look a little different around here.  If you haven’t, then you need to hit your reload button on your browser. I was getting a little bored with my old filmstrip Rage Guy, so I created a bunch of new images to reflect my favorite movies and obsessions.  I like […]

I’m Henry VIII, I Am….Not

Friday, March 16th, 2007

Y’all know that I am a history geek. Medieval history, to be specific, but sometimes this bleeds over a bit into the early Tudor period. I personally loathe and despise the Tudors, and think they were a lot of cheap, tyrannical, base-born, illegitimate usurpers and were the worst thing to ever happen to England, BUT…you […]

Toronto Discoveries

Thursday, March 15th, 2007

Although my habit when I go to Toronto is go re-visit favorite restaurants time and again, on this past trip we discovered two new gems! Ninki Sushi is downtown on Adelaide St., just off of Yonge. BW and I stumbled across it on Thursday night when we just wanted something small to munch, and the […]

300 Reasons to Kvetch

Tuesday, March 13th, 2007

So, one of the things we did whilst in TO was to go see 300. It was actually playing in IMAX in the theater up there, but that was all sold out so we just saw the regular version. Going in, I had a mixture of hope and dread. Previews looked cool, but I knew […]

From TO

Monday, March 12th, 2007

Just a quick note to say we’re back.  So many topics I could write about…our trip, the stupidity of the new Daylight Savings change, my review of 300.  But screw it, I’ve got mountains of laundry to do, emails to look at, and groceries to buy.   Maybe tomorrow.

To TO

Thursday, March 8th, 2007

BW and I get Friday off for a fake University holiday, so we’re headed to Toronto for the weekend.  I can’t believe that I haven’t been there in almost 2 years!  We’ll be there just long enough to stock up on favorites (cheeses! beer! LUSH!) Weather in TO has been insane lately, but oh well…this […]

Longer-Ass Movie Weekend

Tuesday, March 6th, 2007

The movies I saw this weekend were so long, that they require two posts to talk about!! You know, Orson Welles once said that a movie should never be more than two hours long, and I am inclined to agree with the Maestro. (Though I will make exceptions for The Godfather, Brokeback, and Apocalypse Now.) […]

Long-Ass Movie Weekend

Monday, March 5th, 2007

No, not a long weekend — a weekend spent watching long-ass movies. Both of them were very intense, carefully-crafed character studies of people under stress. Friday night I put on my black turtleneck and my beret and we went to the art-house cinema to see The Lives of Others, the German movie that just won […]

It’s Hard Out There for a Pimp

Friday, March 2nd, 2007

I got my free custom Starbuck’s tee in the mail, and ooooh, is it nice! I kinda was half-expecting a cheapy white badly-printed thing, since it was free. But au contraire. It’s actually really spiffy. It’s made of 100% organic cotton from some hippie t-shirt company in Oregon, it isn’t white (thank GAWD, I hate […]

Spring Discoveries

Thursday, March 1st, 2007

From a recent trip to Target… Cadbury Mini-Eggs, which were already my favorite things in the whole world, now come in DARK!  Oh happy day! (And the candy shells of the dark ones are prettier colors than the regulars.) There’s a new color of PEEPS.  A light green shade.  It’s very cheerful, and matches my […]
