Don’t mind me, I’m just lost (in the existential sense, thanks)

Don’t mind me, I’m just lost (in the existential sense, thanks)

If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you know I get lost sometimes. And then again. And again. But I don’t want to write about that. I’m tired of writing about that. I’ve written it all before. I don’t want to write about anything, really. And that’s not new. I’m sick of myself....

Freshmen on my Mind

Freshmen on my Mind

Freshman orientation is today. Since I have two of that variety in my household, the freshman experience is really on my mind lately.

I had just moved to a new town at the end of eighth grade, so I began my freshman year with one friend—my next door neighbor who was kind enough to...

Guardians of the Galaxy (Sneak Preview)

Last week I was lucky enough to see a sneak preview of Guardians of the Galaxy thanks to Living Smart Girl. She’s awesome. I believe briefly I met her at Bloggy Boot Camp when it was in Minneapolis last October, but I digress. Did I love it? Yes. Should you see it? Yes. Why?...

Obituary: Amana Coolzone, 1994?-2014

Jul 30, 2014

Today, we lay to rest a (formerly) cool, original (equipment) character. Born in a factory and raised installed in northern California around the time of the first Reagan Clinton administration, Amana lived only to serve others. At her most generous, … Continue reading

A Room of One’s Own

It’s almost that time of year again—the time when my kids go away for a summer visit to their dad’s house in Southern California for a couple of weeks. I miss my kids when they’re away, but not right at first. Right at first I do a lot of skipping, and singing, and then...

Throwback Thursday: Pepperidge Farm Remembers

Recently my social media friend Starmama posted a factoid about the history of German chocolate cake. Turns out there’s no real connection to Germany; it was simply a cake made using German’s chocolate. German comes from the inventor of the sweetened … Continue reading

Imagine if all the people tried not to be dicks

Imagine if all the people tried not to be dicks

So the other day I was at Costco. For our overseas readers, Costco is grocery store on steroids. Everything in is it huge, bulk, wonderful. I love Costco. It’s very American. I shop there often because my family somehow manages to consume like 3 loaves of bread and 2 gallons of milk a week, even...

The Stick Diet

For me, just thinking about a state or county fair brings to mind fond childhood memories of hurling through the air on the Scrambler, clattering through the fun house, and most vividly, the smell of goat manure in the morning. There really is nothing quite like it, except for possibly the smell of a...

Don’t Treat Me Bad: Living your dream

Don’t Treat Me Bad: Living your dream

Are you living your dream? It irritates me to no end when someone puts someone else down simply because of the profession or job they have chosen. Not everyone wants to be a suit wearing cube jockey.  There’s nothing wrong with being a suit wearing cube jockey, but for some reason, many people can’t...

Review: Surf’s Up Vox Box

In late June I received the Surf’s Up VoxBox from Influenster, full of complimentary products to test out and review on the blog. I love that word, complimentary, which is a fancy way of saying free. That word always reminds … Continue reading
