Spam Email – Absolutely Hilarious

Spam is not always a time suck. Checking it is something I realized was important when I nearly missed an email inviting me to write a story for an anthology. The invitation was direct from an editor and was miraculously legit.

And today provided a great reason to laugh. I received this from “PayPal”. I know, it’s boring to read … Read More »

How to Google Calendar

Happy New Year!

All families are busy. Sometimes, even just one person is so busy that keeping track of each project/class/appointment/event/holiday/birthday etc. gets incredibly overwhelming. For a few years, my husband (the only driver in our household) carried a planner and multiple colored pens to color code for each of us. In addition, we put a large desk pad/calendar on … Read More »

Lewis & Clark Alumni

First, history: growing up, I went to 15 schools. 5 elementary, 5 jr high, 5 high school. I wish a parent in the military was the excuse, but no. I never stayed at one school for more than one year. Twice were 3 schools in one year. Then I stopped at the last high school and announced, that was it. Read More »

Susan Wiggs did it…

Okay, I filled out the questionnaire.  I think I did it wrong the first time, so I had to go back.  It’s so totally wrong when I, of all people, get a rich party house.  I should have clicked “overclocked” and not “hobnobbed” and on the second pass, I had an epiphany.

When it says “rolled a 20” it might … Read More »

Movies or books?

Last night, 300 came out. That’s one movie my husband is just about giddy to see. However, we didn’t plan well and ended up showing up at the theatres when they were already sold out. So we went to the bookstore. :-)

So much for cleaning off the bookshelves. I bought my father-in-law The Art of War, myself a book on … Read More »

One of those days…

Today is one of those days I really enjoy. We’re getting work done on the house, which so far means a new roof and windows. Soon it will be new siding, carpets and bathroom. *happytoecurlingsqueak*

There are two shelves full of books in my living room. They are five cubicles high and each is two cubicles wide. Cubicles that are … Read More »

Happily Ever After!

In the last few years, my reading time has gone down. I watch movies, spend time with the family and cross stitch or crochet. Part of this has to do with the complaints of family since I was 10 or so. I was always reading and not spending time with them or being interested in what they had to say. Read More »

Put the Happy in your New Year!

I’m not an excessively superstitious person. I don’t walk under ladders because they’d likely fall on me. I love black cats and have two. They have a lot of white on them, but they were free, so hey. That works. But, in 2002, right before the end of the year, I read a comment that stuck with me. At first, … Read More »

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I’ve read some really great comments in my spam blocker. Unfortunately, they come with credit card offers and mortgage loans and, of course, the ever present offers of granny and Paris Hilton porn. I absolutely do not comprehend the purpose of spam like this. Does anyone actually click on these links??? Well, to those who’ve posted genuine comments, Thank You … Read More »

Happy Birthday, Lover!

On this day 15 years ago, I accidentally showed up at my husband’s birthday party. Weird, I know. How do you accidentally go to someone’s birthday party? Well, I had just moved in with my aunt and didn’t have a key to her apartment. When she dropped me off at the football game my junior year, the agreement was to … Read More »
