Priorities.

If you’ve been following me on Twitter, I’ve been making plans for my next cosplay. Lady Loki. Well, a hybrid of the Lady Loki from the comics and a feminine version of Loki from the Avengers. I figured out the design, and I’ve figured out how to make the props I want. But there’s a

A Twitter User’s Take on Self Promotion

I’m the first to admit, I’m not a social networking guru. Though really- anyone who calls themselves a guru probably isn’t an actual expert. (I’m not an expert, but if I were, I would never call myself a guru) What I am is someone who has been on Twitter for 6 years now. Six years!

My boys.

I was going to post something about the news… but everything was making me ragey. So instead I’m going to offer you this. My boys. These two are best friends, and one of the few things I can’t really take credit for. They hold hands, they hug. And today- they held hands while jumping cracks

The Billboard Sees All!

I suppose I should explain the title of the post. Everyday I drive past a bus stop with ad space on the shelter. If there’s a movie being advertised, without fail, the movie advertised will be a flop. Don’t believe me? Here’s the list of movies from the last couple years. Red Riding Hood In

Friday Night Random: Chapman University

Here’s something new, a random fact about me. The kidlets are in bed, and well, I just realized I haven’t told this story in awhile. For two years I went to Chapman University in Orange, CA. I transferred to a state school after that because I had no idea what to be, and Chapman wasn’t

Valentines Day and Being Loki.

I was going to write about why I don’t really like Valentine’s Day (and the only Valentine’s Day that mattered to me) – but I did that two years ago. (Go read it, really!) What I do like is that it’s an excuse for me to make dinner for TheBoy. In years past, I’ve done

Ramen & Karaoke – an adventure.

Thursday night, TheBoy asked me something unexpected. He asked if I wanted to go to karaoke with some co-workers of his. Now, this isn’t unexpected for me. I have a singing background, and as anxious as I get in social situations, singing in front of people isn’t a problem. Sometimes, it’s actually calmed me down.

Green grass.

Kids are insane. This is a story about the Oldest Kidlet, but I’ve heard from other parents that I’m not alone. Last year, the Oldest Kidlet begged me to let him buy lunch now and then. I figured there was no harm in it, and even the remote possibility that he might try something new.

Swept up by madness.

There’s so much going on around here. For some reason, February is filled with doctor’s visits- including the Little Kidlet’s annual trip to the allergist, which is actually made up of three visits. The checkup, the scratch test and then the follow-up to the scratch test. The Little Kidlet has had a pretty good year.

Super Bowl 2013

I’m not a fan of football. I’ve jokingly called myself a college football widow (though TheBoy has found a nice balance of football and family). But I do love the Super Bowl. It’s a time for family to come together, to enjoy some commercials and to eat. So when I was asked to handle the
