NOM is too weak a word

Friday, April 30th, 2010

Maybe “YOWSA” or “ROWR” or a simple “Guh” would do better? Or we just stare in hushed wonder?

Yeah, I’m having a really boring week.  This is good news for you, because it means rather than my lame attempts at meaningful content, you’re gonna get Joe for the rest of the week. Hey Joe, I have an espresso  maker at my house….no, seriously…. I get the Lavazza pods in bulk and everything…from Amazon?…Joe??

OMG teh NOM again

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Now back to the level of wanton fangirlary you expect from this site. This photo is one in a series that was published in GQ a few years back and how in the hell did I miss these?!? Hokey smokes that JGL!! I may devote the rest of the week to these babies. I apologize […]

Title aside, this is NOT a post about Shaun White, Sidney Crosby, JStaal or Russell. This post is about these cookies! These may be the best freaking cookies I’ve made in my bloody life.  A little background.  I love sour cherries.  I found some dried sour cherries at Trader Joes and my first thought was […]

Guinea Pig

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

On my most recent LUSH foray I picked up some new products to try in addition to my usual standards.  I’ve gotten a chance to test them out, and here’s what I think. The Geo Phyzz bath bomb is superlative!  It just smells like green, I can’t describe it.  Here, I’ll let the wordsmiths at […]

In closing

Let’s just trot this out again and be done with the whole business.

Necessity is a mutha

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

Been on the phone making plans for what promises to be the Worst Meeting Ever this June.  I know, I use that term a lot, but what can I say…in my job it seems like a new title-holder is crowned virtually every year!  We strive for high achievement!  Anyway, our meeting will be at Penn […]

Take Two and Call Me

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Have spent the weekend feeling run down and vaguely sickly, except for 1. Sunday morning when I learned that Derrick & Richard’s prom went off without incident.  How about that, bigots?  Gay boys danced at the same prom with you, and the Earth didn’t spin off its axis!  Amazing, I know. 2.  The moments I […]

The Vibe Patrol

Friday, April 16th, 2010

Good vibes going out to my hero Derrick Martin of Cochran, GA who after a long and valiantly-fought struggle will be escorting his BF Richard to their prom this weekend.  I have been following this story for a long time, and now that the prom is actually here, I am nervous as hell that some […]

I can haz fierce?

And so it begins.  Good luck, Sidney.

Box of Fox

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Had a pretty sociable weekend this week, catching up with seldom-seen friends and relations.  And sushi was involved, so more’s the good.  Didn’t really accomplish any yardwork, but that’s no big loss. And then the good people at General Mills gave me something nice to wake up to this morning (besides BW) — look what […]

Drive-by Hotting: Now With 20% More Beef Edition

Friday, April 9th, 2010

It was Russell’s birthday on Wed., so for today’s Drive-By, I’m dishing out the presents! First, there’s always room for a little of this: And second, here’s a wallpaper.  Now go forth and play some rugby, get boozed up, and kick ass!

A sensitive photo essay

Rub-a-Dub-Dub I wish I had Flying Fox in a tub. No, the other one.

Interview With The Viking

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

Wow, this is great stuff.   Empty Netters interviewed JSTAAL for their ongoing “Mellon Arena Memories” series.  Besides the interview, there are tons of videos of BabyJ’s great moments.  Badassery in action…relive it now! Oh, the ultimate quote from Jordan: “I pretty much just blacked out and got lucky.” *giggle* That’s mah baby boy!  I’m changing […]

Scents of the Season

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

Come springtime, I always like to swap up my body products wardrobe along with my clothes.  All fall and winter I use vanilla/apple/nutmeg-based scented lotions and sprays.  In summer, I crave fresh smells. But, I hate femme florals.  Luckily, there’s a lot of alternatives on offer.  I always buy something from the Coconut Lime Verbena […]

Weekend Wrapup

Monday, April 5th, 2010

See more pics here. April 2 was my mom’s birthday and after finally exhausting all ideas of objects to get her, I had the bright idea (ok, actually it was Whistler’s idea) to take her to a Pens game because there was a nice 1pm game scheduled the day after her birthday.   I spent what […]
