“I’ve never used the internet.”

I’m tired of celebrities who try to seem cool by saying they don’t use the internet. I found an Glamour from last year with Jennifer Connelly where she said that she doesn’t understand Facebook or Twitter. Then came Winona Ryder who claims she’s never used the internet. She later says she accesses email on her

The Elephant in the Room

I haven’t blogged since Friday. I was busy this weekend with the oldest kidlet’s birthday party, then doctor appointments and a family photo shoot… and then something happened. Something so jarring that I haven’t been able to really put the words to paper (so to speak). My best friend Jerad died. Jerad was going to

The Kidlet’s Birthday

Sunday was the Oldest Kidlet’s birthday party, and as usual it came together as a last minute deal. On Saturday I bought the ingredients for the meal and the oldest kidlet settled on the theme. Disney/Pixar’s Cars. As usual, I made the cupcakes myself. I bought the little Cars edible decorations (how cute are Lightning

End of the week wrap-up.

It’s been a busy week, internet. What have I neglected to tell you? I got a minivan last weekend, and am shocked to say that I love it. It’s wonderful having my own car and I get to use the built in bluetooth to make myself laugh. How so? We’ve already established that I’m a

Webcomic Wednesday: Sailor Twain

And now, a feature I meant to keep up and thought nobody was interested in. Turns out, I was wrong! I read a lot of webcomics, so I thought I might as well share some of my favorites. This week’s offering is “Sailor Twain or The Mermaid in the Hudson” by Mark Siegel. It is

Stop saying that!

This is a Geeky Confession post- there is something that most geeks do that drives me up the wall. Not just drives me up the wall, but makes me want to start punching people. These days, you can’t mention liking Star Wars in a group, without at least one person using the phrase “George Lucas

Happy Thanksgiving!

On this day, I’d like to take a moment to mention what I’m thankful for. I am thankful for my family and close friends, who keep me sane. My mom is wonderful, and while we don’t see each other as often as we’d like, she’s almost always just a phone call away- whether it’s to

Monday Madness!

I’m still battling my cold, but getting better! I went out to take the Oldest Kidlet* to school (driven by TheBoy) and stopped at the grocery store to get ingredients for our Thanksgiving cheesecake. I managed to forget heavy cream, so I’ll just have the in-laws pick that up for me. The highlight of my

I’m dying, I’m dead…

…okay, I’m exaggerating. But those who know me know that I’m fairly healthy. But when I do get sick? I get unbelievably sick. I’m sure that it’s because I push my body fairly hard with my daily life, so when I get sick, my body just puts up the white flag right away. This would

How search engines actually work.

This post is prompted by an “editorial” piece from PopEater, where the author was shocked that when he searched for Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman that it took ages to get past links that weren’t about their love scene in Black Swan. Whining about how difficult it was to find anything that wasn’t about the
