My online CF pal Kent posted this on his blog, now I submit it to you: I want to know 36 things about you. I don’t care if we never talk, or if we already know everything about each other. Short and sweet is fine … You’re reading this, so I want to know you […]

You’ll never know it’s good for you!

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

I can hear the chorus of “ewwws” now…cookies made out of high fiber cereal?  I didn’t believe it either, but these are goooood!  And super low in fat!  If you could find a reduced-sugar brownie mix to use in the recipe, they’d be healthy on that front, too. What I like about these cookies is […]

Gimp

Tuesday, January 29th, 2008

*sigh* So we bought ourselves a spiffy new treadmill after Yule, and I was so happy to be able to jog and run and do interval training (our previous “treadmill” didn’t even have a motor!)  After all the holiday feasting, I’d decided to really ratchet up my cardio to a higher level, and then we […]

Saggy

Monday, January 28th, 2008

I don’t know what’s sadder. The fact that I missed the SAG awards because I don’t have cable, or the fact that I’m bummed that I missed the SAG awards. It’s just that it is possibly the only awards show that will go on this year (bloody writers!), and for a celebwatching/gossip-monger/movie junkie loser like […]

Little Boy Lost

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

This is going to be my long, maudlin Heath post. It will probably be the only one, so if you think this is all stupid and overwrought just go away and come back next week.

Goodbye Baby

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

I don’t have anything to say right now. Maybe I’ll post when I have some coherent thoughts. All you need to know is that I’m far more affected by this than I thought I would be. Meanwhile, this page will remain black until I feel like changing it back. Apart from that, I think anything […]

Looking Over a 4-Leaf Clover(field)

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

Saw Cloverfield on Friday night, and BW and I both really enjoyed it. Did it live up to all the fanboy hype as the bestest geektastic sci-fi monster-stomp movie, like, EVER?? No. But then nothing ever does. It’s usually not the movie’s fault, it’s just that fanboys always get too excited about things and have […]

A Crushing Look Back

Friday, January 18th, 2008

If you run a website it’s almost a law that, when January rolls around, you have to churn out some flavor of Year In Review/Best Of/Worst Of/bleary-eyed retrospective. Or several. Not being one to tempt the wrath of the web gods, I submit my contribution. It’s shallow, it’s useless, it’s a waste of my time […]

Let’s Get Ready to Rrrrrrummble!

Wednesday, January 16th, 2008

I took a stupid quiz to determine who I should vote for, and here are my results. (Actually, I had to rank a bunch of issues, and this is the amount that each candidate agrees with me on the issues.) 88% John Edwards 86% Mike Gravel 86% Dennis Kucinich 86% Barack Obama 83% Chris Dodd […]

Don’t Even Bother

Monday, January 14th, 2008

Maybe there’s a rule: for every good product, there is an equal and opposite bad product? I think that’s the case at Starbucks. You remember how I gave thanks and praised the Sugar-Free Gingerbread syrup back during the holiday season. Guilt-free crack in a cup, it is!! But now comes Gingerbread’s evil long-lost brother, who […]

Yes SIR, boy!

Happy Loup Day! For Loup’s birthday and because we’re still in the midst of Holy Week, I wanted to share something pretty cool that I found. I’ve been reading the Complete Peanuts Collection 1956-58 and while the whole thing is a glittering treasure trove of brilliance, several individual gems shone out. Because Peanuts has long […]

Faith has its rewards

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

As you know, yesterday was Elvis’ birthday, and today I’m called forth to give witness to His goodness! Yesterday… – My 3:10 to Yuma discs came in ON TIME! – I paid for a small Frappucino at Starbucks but the barrista messed up and made me a medium! – BW and I got a check […]

FALLLL on your KNEEEES!

Tuesday, January 8th, 2008

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining, It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth. Long lay the world in sin and error pining. Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn! Fall on your knees! […]

I Love the 80′s…Christmas!

Friday, January 4th, 2008

Time for the annual wallow in crass consumerism! So, what’d ya get for Xmass??? My inner-child had a very happy Yule this year. BW decided to make it a 1980′s little geek girl themed holiday with my gifts. And for whatever reason, other people’s gifts also lined up with the theme. The main gift BW […]

Face to face with greatness

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

It’s been a busy vacation for me and BW. I think the highlight was our quick trip to DC to see the Edward Hopper exhibition at the Nat’l Gallery. I love Edward Hopper. I LOOOVE Edward Hopper. So the show was a thrill for me. I rarely go to art exhibits, so I tend to […]

I Had Higher Hopes

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

*sigh* So much to write about, so little motivation to do so. You know, it’s really nice NOT blogging…:) I’ll try to drum up some posts about my holidays. In the mean time, there’s always stupid quizzes: 19%How Scrooge Are You?
