when the boss is away…

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

This week is the one week each year when both of the people who handle disasters at my workplace go on vacation at the same time. (It’s a problem.) Which makes it the one week each year when — if a disaster occurs — I end up being the one responsible for dealing with it. […]

I am attempting to eat more fruits and vegetables, since it turns out they’re good for me, or something. So I’ve been experimenting with different things — at the moment, cauliflower.

movie review: Die Hard With a Vengeance

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Die Hard 3 is essentially a heist movie, except we’re rooting for the cops. It came out in 1995 — for comparison’s sake: The Thomas Crown Affair (1999) Oceans 11: 2001 (12 was 2004, 13 was 2007) Fast Five: 2012 Apparently I like to watch movies where the heist-ers are the heroes. It’s not like […]

Ohana, Teen Wolf style: The Morning When It’s Clear, by BarlowGirl Lots of Derek introspection & scenes from his life with Laura pre-show; ultimately a very hopeful look at the future of the Hale pack. (Also, this is the one with the great joke about sheep pajamas!)

Google tells me today would be Copernicus’ birthday, which led me to review what I know about Copernicus. 1. Male scientist from a long time ago; now dead. 2. Born on February 19th. 3. Not mentioned in an Indigo Girls song.* 4. Not the one who talked about the music of the spheres.** 5. Not, […]
