Where did the week go?

Honestly, this week is flying by. I realized it was Thursday and I hadn’t blogged anything yet, and had a bit of a meltdown. Strangely, it isn’t for lack of ideas. It’s been lack of time. This week I’ve been bitten by the muse and have been ridiculously busy working on one of my many

Girls and Comics.

I wanted to write a long post about how the comics industry fails women as an audience. But then I realized that I don’t have a lot of the scans I’d saved over the years anymore. (Yes, this is the short version) The big part of why a lot of girls (and for this, I

How did my parents do it?

This morning a former colleague of mine posted on Facebook that he was happy he has girls instead of boys (he has two girls, roughly the same age as my boys), because he wouldn’t have to learn about dinosaurs. Ignoring the obvious gender role issue… it annoyed me a bit because, well, I was a

Two weeks and I’m surviving!

So I’ve been on a gluten-free diet for two weeks now. Honestly, I didn’t expect a simple shift in my diet to change things quickly. Having been on plenty of forums for those with food allergies, I knew that it could take awhile to see changes. But honestly, I’ve seen a lot of changes for

Stealing is bad.

This post has been updated- if you already read this, please scroll to the bottom to see the new information. I was going to write a post about how awesome social media is, and how lame the regular media has been. But I’ll sum it up as this- without Facebook, it’d be really hard to

The allergy nightmare that isn’t mine.

The Little Kidlet has a laundry list of allergies. Yes, it means that he doesn’t dine out very often. But we’re exceptionally lucky. His reactions are only if he personally comes into contact with the allergen- so if he gets it on himself or eats it. And even then, a dose of Benadryl was done

The Wired Mom: What’s up with Twitter?

Yes, I am The Wired Mom. Not just because of my addiction to caffeine, but because I don’t seem to go anywhere without my phone or my laptop. Need I remind everyone of my birthday weekend, where TheBoy and I rejoiced because they had free wifi at our hotel? Anyways, I use Twitter. I joined

Ch-Ch-Changes, part deux.

Recently, I posted something about changes going on in my life, talking about signing my kids up for school. The Oldest Kidlet at a new school for kindergarten, and the Little Kidlet for preschool. Well, there’s a lot going on! This week I went to the doctor for some intestinal issues I’d been having. TMI,

I heart Caltech

One of the advantages to living in an active fault zone is that you find yourself with quake experts living in the background. Whenever there’s a wake, the lovely people from CalTech come out and shine. They explain the science and keep people calm. The Little Kidlet and I are watching a press conference with

Not a fun wakeup.

I’d already stayed up too late, finishing “The Portrait of Dorian Gray.” I drifted off to sleep, and started to wake when the light went on and off on the stairs a few times (I sleep with my door open a teeny bit for the cat). Then my door opened, and my mother-in-law informed me
