Arizona. Again.

I know, I’m overdue on some posts. I have a post queued up where I berate myself for skipping my posting schedule, but I felt like this one was more important. Recently, there have been some states that tried to pass legislation saying that businesses could discriminate refuse service if they felt the individual would

Whitney vs Days of the Wolf

So I’m a big Teen Wolf fan. That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to those of you who follow me on Twitter (or Tumblr). I admit, I wasn’t sure about watching it – a non-reality show on MTV? And it’s based on a movie from the 80s? After being wooed by GIF sets

Everyday magic.

This weekend, TheBoy and I went to Days of the Wolf, a Teen Wolf convention. But that isn’t what that post is about.  (I’ll post about that on Wed) We surprised the Kidlets with a trip to Disneyland and a stay last night in a hotel. (We haven’t left yet, right now we’re waiting for

The Obligatory V-Day Post.

It’s Valentine’s Day today, which doesn’t exactly mean much to me. TheBoy and I have never really been about celebrating the day. Though I did get him a Valentine’s Day present. I bought him this laptop skin because his laptop was naked and he loves Legend of Zelda. I just used Valentine’s Day as a

Insurance. Glad I have you, but you are a pain.

I am lucky. A lucky, lucky girl. We have insurance through TheBoy’s work, and it’s a pretty good insurance. That said, health insurance still manages to make my life difficult. TheBoy started a new job little over a year ago, and I wouldn’t say that I had any particular health issues around the time of

I didn’t think it would be this hard.

Since I was released from the hospital (wow, that makes me sound like a wild animal, doesn’t it?), I’ve been cooking for myself regularly. Which is fun. I love cooking, and it’s the easiest way for me to manage my restrictions and make sure I’m eating healthily. Is that a word? It is now. So

Kidlets and Conversations About Parallel Universes

Earlier this week, as we walked from our car to the elementary school, the Oldest Kidlet asked me something interesting. And no, it had nothing to do with the Titanic. He asked what my life would be like if TheBoy and I hadn’t had them (the Kidlets). And I know that was never an option.

Love and Friendship in the Wizarding World

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, odds are you heard about the interview where JK Rowling said that looking back she thought that Harry and Hermione should have ended up together as a couple. And the internet went crazy. Not because they thought that she was right, but because they were upset. As a writer,

The Trouble with Anonymity.

Anonymity is important. I’m going to say that upfront. Anonymity is necessary for people to be able to speak freely about atrocities going on, without fear of repercussions from others. So that they can speak up. But that isn’t what you typically see anonymity used for. Over on Tumblr, a few friends of mine have
