Dogs, pranking my mom from beyond.

When I was in 8th grade, we got a puppy named Sonora. Great dog. She was smart, loyal (though she did love to run, and if she got out of the house, so help you it’d take an hour to get her out of the fields nearby). We got another dog my sophomore year, Buster.

Busy week, have some cookies!

It’s sort of a busy week here in the house, so I figured I’d pull up some old posts this week. And where better to start than with a recipe? Almond Cranberry Cookies. I’m not sure how I wound up at this recipe. It might have been a link in a blog, or I might

Kickstarter, Pick Up Artists and Parenting

If you’ve been on the internet recently, you’ve probably heard about the kickstarter for a ‘dating guide’ that upset a lot of people. Heck, if you were on my twitter feed, you probably saw no less than a dozen retweets about it. Here’s the skinny, the Kickstarter was to publish a seduction guide based off

[Vlog] Summertime. Kidlets and writing.

This week’s vlog. Complete with extra fluffy hair that I totally did not wash just so it would look okay for the video. The summer has been a big adjustment. Two years ago, the Oldest Kidlet did the summer program at his preschool, and for most of the day it was just the Little Kidlet

The Front Office

Last week I mentioned that I once worked for Scientologists. At the time, I didn’t know a lot about them. Just that they had the Celebrity Centre in LA and that it was founded by LRH who also wrote scifi. I knew that they were regarded as a cult, but hadn’t delved into that very

[Vlog] Power Outages and Prompts (and a bonus cosplay vid!)

Over the weekend we had a planned power outage, and this is the full story. Mistakes and all. I also talk a little about my writing, and call myself an idiot. As a bonus, here’s my first cosplay progress video. It’s Abaddon from Supernatural. If you don’t watch the show (you should), this is what

Hit from behind.

Earlier this week, I was browsing my Tumblr dash, and came across this post: And if you look at the tags on the bottom, you’ll see what happened. I read it, and realized that I had a friend that was a soulmate. Someone who got me to the very core, who I didn’t have to

Playing telephone.

Remember Telephone? That ridiculous game where one end of a line would say something like ‘pretty nice day’, and by the time it would get to the other end it would turn into ‘purple monkey dishwasher.’ For the last month of so, I’ve been playing this game with our insurance company. It started when I

[Vlog] Tech on the Go!

It’s Vlog #6 – And this time I’m talking about what I use to stay connected on the go! (Because really, I’m mildly addicted to my phone and spend a lot of time away from outlets) These are the two items I mention: HyperJuice Micro – made by HyperShop, http://www.hypershop.com ChargeCard – http://www.chargecardproject.com These are

The Doctor: Eleven, Twelve.

Over the weekend it was announced that Matt Smith would be leaving Doctor Who, and while I can’t say that I’m surprised (he has had a long run), I am both happy and sad. Happy that Matt Smith’s career has taken off (because Doctor Who has proved how immensely talented he is), and sad because
