We are currently under a flood watch, with a potential for 3-5 inches of rain today! Which makes this the perfect time to share the NUMBER ONE MOST AWESOME THING ABOUT BALCONIES. You can leave all the windows that face the balcony OPEN during rainstorms! It was super hot and humid yesterday (weather!!! ::fist shake::) […]

Tuesday triumph

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

Okay, this was more like a Sunday triumph, but I’m posting it on Tuesday? And it’s a small thing, but I figure it’s good to celebrate those little victories. So: there I was, on Sunday, trying to sort out my fall/winter clothes, and realizing I have SO MANY socks. And I don’t really have a […]

memorable quote Monday

Monday, September 28th, 2015

Since I keep saying I’m going to pick this story next, here it is! The title is a quote in and of itself, but I think it’s the Weltschmerz parts that I remember the most clearly. “He suffers from Weltschmerz, I’m sorry to say. Apparently he feels that it is his destiny to channel the […]

well, it’s the weekend

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

1. Surprised by how many things I’ve come up with to do other than the two things ACTUALLY on my to-do list today. 2. Have put away some of the summer clothes and pulled out the cold-weather stuff. Forecast for tomorrow: 78F. Classic. 3. So far no one at work has believed me when I […]

oh, now I remember

Saturday, September 26th, 2015

::blah blah backstory:: Anyway, there’s now a default news app on my phone. Not sure why, since presumably anyone who wanted news could get it easily enough, but there it is. Yesterday I read one article (about Congress! I thought it was safe!) and started crying, so I decided to stop there. So far the […]

I can only imagine that there is some way for your doodlers to pull the stats on yesterday’s “first day of fall” doodle and get a good laugh from how long I watched it, waiting for the squirrel to do something else. Yes, it was embarrassing. I realized it was looping far too late to […]

movie review: Penguins of Madagascar

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015

After I watched ‘Home’ over the weekend, I figured I should also watch ‘Penguins of Madagascar.’ It was cute! Not a movie I’d rush to watch again, but I’m not unhappy to have seen it once. (I wish everyone at my workplace had seen it, so we could quote it!) 1. I liked that they […]

movie review: Home

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

1. The cat was SO CUTE! Why do we not have a movie about Pig and Dug, adorable floofins? 2. I thought the exposition was boring. Oh seemed to spend a lot of time explaining things that we’d already seen. 3. However, the interrupting cow joke is a personal favorite, and Oh’s very visual delight […]

memorable quote Monday

Monday, September 21st, 2015

The journey back to find the context for some of the quotes that stick with me is sometimes a bit of a facepalm situation. I remembered this one mostly as having to do with hiding? Definitely something about hiding, and then confronting Peter (presumably with an angry tone!). The thought passed through Harry’s mind that […]
