There’s other things besides Doctor Who

I know, you wouldn’t be able to tell it from this blog.  Mother’s Day was this past weekend and I requested that Kile take me to see “The Great Gatsby” on Sunday night.  I had read the book in high school, like a lot of people, but that was a...

The Great Nerd Revival

Actually, can you call it a revival when they never really were terribly mainstream and/or accepted before?  Ehh. Doesn’t make much difference because the point is: it’s a bit cool to be a nerd these days.  Moreso than ever before. I gotta blame the hipsters at least a little bit...

The Doctor, Rose and the TARDIS

Yes, I’m going to talk about Doctor Who. Again.

So yes, I’m still obsessed.   But, to my credit, “Doctor Who” is a show that is very easy to obsess about.  I’m starting to think that the U.K. has it in for me.  Nearly every British cultural thing I have taken in recently has been so good and so...

Things that blow my mind

Ugh.  Monday. Things that are blowing my mind today: How short weekends are.  How criminally unfair is it that we only have TWO weekend days.  Just about the time you’re getting used to the relaxed pace, then you’re plunged back into the week again. How unfair is also is to...

Igniting the light

You know what I love?  That color where a good, deep green mixes with a brilliant blue.  Not too light… not too dark.  Just right. Gorgeous.  Lush.  I want to live where that color is.  It seems so cool and peaceful, doesn’t it? *** On the “progress” side of things:...

Smatterings

It’s been an embarrassingly long time since I’ve posted anything.   I keep thinking, I need to post about our trip to Lake Tahoe! And then I don’t.  I need to post about all that fun we had that one weekend!  And then I don’t.  I need to post about how...

Further evidence of my suckage

Okay, so the frequency of posting here has been less then stellar lately but there is a good (GOOD!) reason for that.  I’ve been super duper productive with the knitting.  I have FINALLY got my customs list under control and an knit some things for “in stock”.  This is a...

The Blessed Hours

My favorite time of any day is after the kids are in bed at night and it’s just Kile and I hanging out together.  Usually we’re watching tv or a movie.  I’m knitting, he’s playing around on his iPhone or laptop.  But we’re together and it’s peaceful and we can...

All good things…

I love a good, long weekend. And this weekend was good. And long. Productive, yet enjoyable. Yes, we had a great time despite NOT seeing fireworks yesterday. Can you believe it?? Turns out you can celebrate our nation’s independence WITHOUT fireworks. I know, I was shocked too. See, I love...
