Vlog 16: DC and Marvel feelings, I have them.

It’s the Vlog! I think I’m going to have to start updating the Vlog on Fridays- I’m too busy doing my parental duties, volunteering in the Little Kidlet’s class. I was asked on Tumblr (I wish I could remember who suggested it, sorry) about my thoughts on DC and Marvel (both movies and comics) so I managed to streamline my thoughts into this… If you happen to have any suggestions for videos, let me know! I am always looking for vlog ideas.

Pushing Ahead.

It’s been an odd summer. As much as I accomplished, and as many friends as I’ve made online (and I do count you as actual friends), it’s become clear that I need more friends to meet up with. I blame the Little Kidlet, who is a cuddler. After spending an entire summer with him sneaking into my bed for puppy piles, or jumping on me to snuggle in and sniff (I think he’s possibly part wolf)- I’m feeling an absence now of personal contact. Hugs from friends, bumping shoulders as you crack jokes. Maybe it’s because I’ve been pushing myself…

[Vlog] Talk Like a Pirate Day

If it’s Thursday, it means it’s time for the Vlog. This week, I’m celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day- though admittedly, this is my least enthusiastic go for TLAP Day yet. I just wasn’t awake when I filmed it, sorry guys. I also have more on the Dylon Saga. Yes, in the vlog there’s a new and bizarre way that they spelled my name. Which led to this: YOU WIN. EVERYONE ELSE GO HOME. RT @jamesecarpenter: And early #ff to @whitneyd  the crowned Dillion of Starbucks — Whitney Drake 🌊✨ (@whitneyd) September 19, 2013 Because honestly, there’s no way that…

The Dylon Saga

I’m a fan of pseudonyms. I really am. I’m also not a fan of having my name misspelled, and quite frequently my name gets butchered when I go to Starbucks. Wendy Brittany Britney Whittney Whittni Witney Vitney (This is still my favorite) Those are all ways I’ve had my name butchered. Whittni is clearly the worst. I did get a Whitley, and that made me far too happy to include it on the list. At any rate, I wanted to start ordering coffee using a fake name. But I’m too shy to go for broke and order as Loki, so…

Vlog Madness! DL Half Marathon and 9/11 Healing vs Holding On

Wow guys, I realize now that I didn’t post last week’s vlog vid here, so you get two vids on one page. First, TheBoy and I did the Disneyland Half Marathon weekend over Labor Day weekend (he did the Half Marathon, I did the 5k) and so I vlogged about it! Yesterday was 9/11 and I’ve written a lot about it, but had a couple things to say. (Just in case you weren’t in the mood for me to gloss over my feelings, the first minute is actually about TheBoy. So watch it and then stop) If you have ANYTHING…

Tuesdays, man.

I know that the Hitchhiker’s Guide quote is about not being able to get the hang of Thursdays, but Tuesdays are killer around here. This morning, TheBoy and I got into a fight. He’s my soulmate, but occasionally, he can be an asshole. On occasion, I can be an dick. It’s a fact. (I’m sure my mom is livid I’m swearing, but it’s true) Not really related to the argument, but his car wouldn’t start so he was home for a bit of the morning. Also, the fight ended and we’ve moved beyond it, so that’s all you get about…

Time. Space. Or something.

I’ve been counting down to this week for the last two years. As of now, the Kidlets are both at the same school, and with the same hours. For the first couple weeks, the kindergarten class does half days. So while I was reaping the unbelievable benefit of only having to do one drop off location in the morning, I still had to head to the elementary school twice. But no more. That’s right. They’re doing full days at school now. I have one drop off. One pick up. I’m living the dream. (Why no, it doesn’t take much to…
