Happy Accidents

Since I went teal in January, I’ve had a lot to learn about vivid color. Since it fades really quickly, I could go in to the salon for toner refreshes every couple weeks, or I could fuss with the color at home. (Sorry E—-, I’d go broke trying to keep it up at the salon

Brave. See it.

Here there be spoilers. This is both my review of Brave as well as a discussion about the movie- while I tried not to get too in depth with the movie, it’s hard to address some of the criticism the movie’s received without discussing the movie. If you want to remain spoiler free, the title

Really, Facebook?

As I’ve said here many times, one of the things that frustrates me to no end is Facebook’s policy of changing your settings without telling you. They’ve done it many times already (I tend to do a check of my settings around the first of the month, even though I don’t really post much of

People are funny.

Adam Carolla has a book out. In an interview promoting that book, he said that women aren’t funny. Yes, it wasn’t a coincidence. He trolled us all, knowing that that his name alone isn’t going to sell his book. Unfortunately, the notion that women aren’t funny is everywhere. Don’t like a particular female comedian? Just

Giving the Pirate Princess a new look.

We watch a lot of Disney Channel, and in particular “Jake and the Neverland Pirates.” Pirate isn’t up there in the header for my blog for no reason- I’ve been a fan of pirates since I was little, and obviously, I’ve passed on that interest to my boys. Almost a year ago to the day,

Boosting the Signal

There is another guy in my life, and he’s a dad- though definitely not a father figure for me. It’s Roby, the man behind Imagination Situation- a webseries for the whole family. We worked together back in our Disney days, and I’m thrilled to work with him again. I even blog over at Imagination Situation

To the men in my life.

Happy Father’s Day! I have been fortunate enough to be surrounded by some wonderful men. First, thanks to my father. He worked very hard to provide for our family, and really enjoyed being able to take the time for the little things- like teaching me to use a circular saw. He’s always been there for

The Old, the New and the Unknown.

We’ve reached another fork in the road for my little family. First, the old. School came to a close, and now the Little Kidlet is headed off to summer school/camp. The Oldest Kidlet just finished kindergarten, and will be a first grader next year. Where has the time gone? I admit, I’ve been sad about

Catwoman, why are you bending like that?

For some reason DC thought it’d be smart to reboot their universe, and then issue a series of #0 issues to explain how the characters got to be who they were in the reboot. This is the cover of Catwoman #0 (I know, it says #1- but the zero covers all have the characters busting

Why I won’t be playing the new Lara Croft game.

Back when I was in college, everyone had Tomb Raider. I was no exception. Not to mention- I liked Lara Croft. I am a huge Indiana Jones fan, and here was a female counterpart who had it all. She knew the history, could handle the weapons, and was clever enough to outwit the bad guys
