don’t ask me, I just live here…

2 January, 2011

Over the past two weeks, I’ve gotten over a hundred visits to a post I wrote a couple of years ago about how the 25th Anniversary My Little Pony Convention was happening in Rhode Island that week.  Having not heard about the ponies since I was about seven years old, I was amused by this.  […]


19 October, 2009

So I was dismayed to learn that a fort building contest happened at this nifty collaborative arts website called Booooooom, and I missed it.   And a fort-building contest inspired by and in junction with Where the Wild Things Are, no less.  However, my disappointment really can’t settle for long after looking at all the pictures […]

Two notes re: Gossip Girl

7 May, 2009

1.  Note to the writers of Gossip Girl. Lily is a terribly boring character.  You have given me no compelling reason to care about her past, present or future.  I am very annoyed that next week’s episode will depart from the serious lack of storyline this season, in order to flashback and plug your new […]

smile-fodder: New Year’s related and otherwise

31 December, 2008

I have a lot of blogging to catch up on.  I nearly disappeared for all of December.  I have been dreaming of blogging, but only succeding at squirreling notes away in the brain file to post as soon as possible… they will make it up here.  You will know them, because they will be the […]

curiouser and curiouser

20 September, 2008

I love my strange friends.  I really do.  I have no idea who is responsible for this one… Several months ago, Darcy and I let our subscription to Time Out NY run out.  (We no longer live in NY and didn’t feel it was necessary to continue paying for it).   Last week, we received two […]

wtf, Spencer….

18 September, 2008

In the service of randomness, I feel compelled to post this.  It’s called “Ben Bernanke”.  Figure that out.  Or don’t… just enjoy it and then walk around telling people you are a furious magician and you need their teeth for the federal reserve.  (Like I intend to do.  Brilliant!) I found it via dooce (Thank […]

Kermit Bale: ridiculous + awesome

8 September, 2008

Wow.  So an evil genius over at OhNoTheyDidn’t posted the most brilliant and absurd pictorial comparison post I’ve ever seen.  I wish there were awards for this kind of thing, because this person is full of win. Seriously, just click the link right now, if for nothing else, to grasp the full scope of this […]

My “Breaking Dawn”

7 September, 2008

When a mortal girl must face the dawning of a new day… her only hope is to find, within herself, the strength to endure and harness the power of… caffeine. I haven’t gone to sleep and I need to leave for work in an hour! (This is a reference to this book cover, and a testament to my love affair/addiction […]

Matt Harding Makes Me Smile.

11 July, 2008

This makes me very happy.  More people should do their own strange little dances, all over the world.   And then we can all join in and be strange and dancing together. [youtube=] Go to Where the Hell is Matt? to read more about it.

PhotoBlog: Playing with fire and other fun summer activities.

10 July, 2008

Kally called last week and said “I want to cook dinner, but I don’t want to do it here.” … I love spontaneous nighttime back porch barbecues. The back porch all set for a gathering: Good dinner, good friends and good conversation… and sparklers (or for those of you in on the joke  – all […]

Cutest Thing You’ve Seen Today. Guarenteed.

Pig in Boots Pig is afraid of mud.  Farmers put little boots on her.  Problem solved.
