Who I’d Love to Go Away.

Perez Hilton. I would love for that man to fall off our radar. This will be the one and only time I will mention him on this blog. I admit, that I am a fan of entertainment sites and gossip blogs. However, I find him repulsive. While, yes, most gossip blogs post pictures taken by

To Tweet or To Blog? That is The Question.

I admit, I’m not an expert on social media. I didn’t go to school to study it, but I have been on Twitter for 3 years, 3 months, 3 weeks, and 3 days*. I’ve followed people and companies alike, and have seen a lot of tactics that companies and individuals have employed in promoting themselves.

Webcomic Wednesday: Questionable Content

Next up in Webcomic Wednesday is Questionable Content by Jeph Jacques. With years of archives, this probably the first that might give you a lot of reading before you catch up. And yes, I always recommend starting a webcomic from the beginning. Questionable Content follows the life of Marten, his roommate Faye, and his AnthroPC

When real life attacks!

I’d pledged to try to blog something every weekday. Oddly enough, the more regularly I blogged, the more motivated I was to try to find time to work on something creative as well. But sometimes, real life gets in the way. I’m a stay at home mom, and my two boys (4 and 2) take

A small victory, in Prescott

In my rant on racism (“Language? We don’t need no stinkin’ national language“), I mentioned the story from Prescott, AZ where a mural depicting local children was being repainted to make the students white. Where a local city council member was using his radio show to speak out against the mural, and during the painting

To the rest of the United States, let’s remember D-Day. To my mom, Happy Birthday to Jehzara! This is my sister. If you couldn’t guess, she’s in Japan right now. It’s her birthday! Well, at least in the states. Her birthday just wrapped up in Japan.

Language? We don’t need no stinkin’ national language.

One of the common complaints I’ve heard in the immigration reform debate is that the United States needs to make English the official language. That we’ll save money in only printing one versions of forms, and right now we’re catering to illegal immigrants. Why am I even mentioning this issue? Someone on Facebook (an app

My mom and I.

I have the coolest mom. Sorry, I don’t care what stories you share, my mom is the awesomest mom that ever was! Every group of friends has that mom. The one who’s a bit younger than the rest of the moms, who can pull off the crazy hair cut or style, and just isn’t afraid

Webcomic Wednesday: The Dreamland Chronicles

Psst! Let’s pretend that posted this yesterday. Truthfully, the three day weekend threw me off and I thought today was Wednesday. Yikes. So far I’ve mentioned Johnny Wander and Girls with Slingshots. Just in case the last one was a bit too adult, I thought I’d mention one that’s great for parents and kids- The

Dear Disneyland…

Dear Disneyland, Thank you for helpfully sending me one last issue of your Annual Passholder magazine, asking for my family to renew our passes. However, I think it’s time we part our ways. I got my first annual pass when I was in high school. We’d gone to Disneyland (my parents, sister and I) for
