Pumpkin Days Are Here Again

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

There are things in life that I own up to being a complete sucker for; things that are guaranteed to make me cheerfully part with my money.   A Russell Crowe movie on opening weekend.  A new Song of Ice & Fire book.  Peter Murphy.  Viking movies.  Magazines with Shaun White on the cover.  Ginger-flavored anything.  […]

Do you know what today is?! Thank you, Flying Fox, for all the joy and happiness you spread throughout the world on a daily basis.  And for the much-needed endorphin buzz in the midst of the long, dull winter of 2010…hasn’t worn off yet! I found a recipe in my King Arthur Flour Cookie book […]

Feast of the Virgin

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

Virgos! Everywhere I go in 2010, there they are! Or so it seems. Virgo people have entered my life in a big way this year. I used to only know one or two, but now I’m acquainted with a whole plethora of Virgos. (Plethora? What is the collective noun for a group of Virgos? I […]
