Ten random things…

on November 28, 2007

Ten random things about me that you will probably wish I’d kept to myself… 1. I almost graduated from college with a masters degree instead of a BA because, although I had 20 units more than I needed to graduate, I had too many units in English. They had to re-name a graduate English course… Read More

The 300?

on November 26, 2007

I wanted to do something big and nutty for my 300th post–you know, a contest or some sort of deeply introspective and brilliantly pondering work that would make the bells of humanity tone foreverandevermore amen. But really? I’m not in that sort of mood. About the only thing I have to report is that I’m… Read More

Wii-search complete.

on November 23, 2007

No–not my Wii-search, thank gods… Let me start from the beginning. Six years ago today, my buddy and I embarked on a bizarre quest. We both hate shopping. Neither of us regard it as a sport. Neither of us are ‘girlie girls’ who go shopping for the helluva it and a cool sale on lipgloss…. Read More

Why I don’t tell you guys what I cook…

on November 22, 2007

Happy Thanksgiving, first of all! My link button is still missing, otherwise I’d give you a link to Roxie’s new book–a thing I, for one, am especially thankful for. Besides being a constant, inspirational source of support, Roxie is one helluva writer–and her character, Sanna, is a spunky delight and I’m so thrilled to be… Read More

60 pages, 3 more posts, and 1/2 a baby sock…

on November 21, 2007

Okay–I admit, I’ve been a bit distracted lately. And getting to visit my friends, I mean blog, has been much harder–and much more infrequent–than it should be. I’ve been staying up late, getting up early, neglecting the housework, and spending as much time on my ass with kids on my lap as humanly possible, and… Read More

Quick Question…

on November 19, 2007

Say, if someone has had a gauge accident and has produced–just for the sake of argument, mind you–a hat that would probably fit a two-year old (because it is a wee bit too big for my 20 month old) when someone (won’t say who!) has to give this hat away at a baby shower on… Read More

I had to go to a wedding this weekend, all by myself. Seriously–I”m feeling very LuLu Adventure, here, because I am two hours away from home, in a hotel room, without another soul who needs me, needs to talk to me, or wants my attention. You’d think, that with all this quiet I’d be giddy,… Read More

*sigh* Yeah, I know.

The pictures are sideways, but I’m so happy to have pictures at this point, that I’m not even going to question it. I tried to load a picture of my tats, since that’s going around, but alas, blogger quit at two… (I tried to load two more pix of the party, as well, but, well,… Read More

Guess how old…

on November 13, 2007

The Cave Troll will be on Thursday. Bless his little heart–we were in the car the other day and he said, “Mom, I have Percy, and Thomas, and Molly…but I don’t have Toby…” And then he started to sing, “Happy Birthday to me…” Well, of course a Toby was the number one thing on our… Read More
