We’re gonna need a bigger cake

Monday, March 31st, 2008

It’s that time again, the last days of March, the first days of April…the time when practically everyone good in the Universe was born! The next week of so will be the annual cavalcade of Aries (Arieses? Arii?) I know I do this every year, same people, etc., but hey: 1. tradition is good 2. […]

You don’t VOTE for Kings!

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

Hate the French and bloody peasants? Spot on! What Monty Pytter are you?   Well, u– um, can we come up and have a look? Take this quiz!

Fashion victims

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

As in “victim of a brutal mugging.”  That’s how we all felt after Friday’s dress-shopping marathon. We made the mistake of thinking that a weekday would have fewer crowds, but we forgot that it was: a. good friday and everyone had the day off,  b. coming up on Prom season.  So the shops were packed […]

Two Bridesmaids and a God

Friday, March 21st, 2008

In a short time I’m going to be picked up by pal Cheri, her mom, and The Other Bridesmaid and whisked off to David’s Bridal for dress browsing and maybe tryings-on. Three over-30, cynical, bitter, sometime former-Gothy and always Gaming Geeky women in a store that is designed to cater to young, fru-fru girls who […]

Stuff I Learned on Vacation

Thursday, March 20th, 2008

A few more random tidbits… – Did you know that there’s a Pimp My Ride, UK Edition? Now you do. – The British make some kick ass Easter eggs. – I learned that while all of Scotland rocks, I really like it better up in Aberdeen and/or the Highlands. Things in Edinburgh seemed too “English”; […]

We interrupt this broadcast

Wednesday, March 19th, 2008

A quick break from our usual pointless drivel to bring you something of substance. I’ve been avoiding any mention of the 08 presidential race because…well, mainly because I Just Don’t Care. I’ve come to the conclusion that there is no hope because the problem lies in the basic nature of the majority of the people […]

Right, then

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

So our trip was to Edinburgh. We stayed there the entire week and didn’t venture out of the city, but never ran out of things to see. I had hoped that we could rent a car one of the days and motor the hour or so south to Lindesfarne Island (home of history’s FIRST-EVA recorded […]

Home and Back Again

Monday, March 17th, 2008

Well, we’re back. So where were we?  Here’s a hint – More details to come later!  I wish I could write more now, but I am still digging out from under laundry and emails.

Hotness in Motion

Friday, March 7th, 2008

This here blog is on vacation beginning now! Will return to your usual pointless, self-absorbed crap on or around March 17th. In the meantime, here are the best 5 seconds of the film Mystery, Alaska. (If only the rest of the movie had been this good.) I could easily be entertained by this for a […]

Bluff Prince Hal

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

Since we were discussing famous royal redheads named Henry earlier in the week, did y’all see the photos of Hot Harry in Afghanistan? I *heart* Harry! Prince Wills was very cute once, be his looks peaked tragically at 18. Harry, on the other hand, just gets better all the time. As a major medieval English […]

The End Times are Upon Us!!

Wednesday, March 5th, 2008

Oh Fire! Oh Brimstone! Sackcloth! Ashes! Plagues of locusts! The seas have turned to blood! PACKERS QB FAVRE TO RETIRE GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Brett Favre has decided to retire from the NFL after 17 seasons. FOX Sports first reported Tuesday that the Green Bay Packers quarterback informed the team in the last few […]

Boleyn for Dollars

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

The Other Boleyn Girl isn’t has as horrible as you think it’s going to be, but it’s nothing approaching good either. I went because the novel it was based on, though wildly historically inaccurate, was soapy, smutty, dishy fun. “History through porn,” Scarlett Johansson called it. Much to its detriment, the movie version is none […]
