memorable search Monday

Monday, February 29th, 2016

Happy Leap Day! Ah, google search — what would I do without it? A selection of the week’s searches: 1. orchid fertilizer (I don’t have any orchids; apparently orchid fertilizer is good for air plants?) 2. two cakes tumblr (google — still the easiest way to search tumblr) 3. good roasting vegetables (food is hard) […]

leap year

Sunday, February 28th, 2016

Ways leap years impact my life: 1. Convenient way to remember presidential election years. 2. Christmas moves ahead two weekdays instead of one. (Still grumpy we’re missing Saturday Christmas.) 3. That’s really it. It’s kind of fun, I guess? A novelty to talk about at the end of February every four years. I don’t really […]

March is coming!

fic rec Friday

Friday, February 26th, 2016

Full disclosure: I have not seen Fantastic (Fant4astic? Fantastic Four 2015?), because I read the summary on wikipedia and thought ‘that sounds *awful*’ and noped it right off my to-view list. But this fic is everything I never knew I wanted from the movie I never saw. And We’ll Never Be Lonely Anymore, by Traincat […]

a new record!

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

Last night I thought to myself, ‘Huh — I should re-read my nanowrimo novel.’ I didn’t, but the thought occurred to me. And only three months after nano — a new record! Then I thought I might peek at it this morning, but based on past experience, reading my nano novels usually makes me fall […]

no work Wednesday!

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

Taking the day off today, because one and two day mini-vacations each month are awesome, and week-long vacations make me anxious. The great thing about taking a day off in the middle of the week is that there’s no pressure to do weekend things. I love a three-day weekend, but every time I have one, […]

two cakes!

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Celebration time: I just uploaded an image! Hey, haven’t been able to do that for a while; I didn’t actually think it would work. So the problem that I couldn’t figure out a cause for has somehow resolved itself. Thanks, technology! Also, it seems like a good day to revisit the two cakes theory. (I’ve […]

memorable search Monday

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Once I took out all of the searches that were for primary results or driving directions to team-building, there actually wasn’t a lot left. It’s an interesting mix of ‘type an actual question’ and ‘toss keywords in the search box and hope for the best.’ 1. what is an amino acid chelate 2. avengers quote […]

life goals

Sunday, February 21st, 2016

Today I am going to attempt to stealth!chore. While telling myself it is a weekend day and I’m spending the day relaxing and enjoying the warm-ish weather, I shall try to sneak in a variety of weekend tasks that I don’t really feel like doing. I have no idea if this will work. I tried […]

team building report

Saturday, February 20th, 2016

Well, it’s done. Thank goodness. I tend to have a lot of trouble with these ‘pretend stress’ scenarios — this one was a locked room puzzle kind of thing. Because pretend stress isn’t fun for me — I get that it is for some people, just like some people like being scared at the movies, […]
