Bring it, Monday.

Here we go. Fun, full, busy weekend is over. Nunsense is over (mostly — you never know when a function is going to require some faux-nuns as entertainment). The cold/laryngitis is nearly over, leaving me with a more sultry than squeaky sound. Yay for more sultry, right? Turned down sub work for today, because, you […]

Creepin’ Death, My Brother’s Dorm Cat

**UPDATE** One comment on any of my brother’s posts (2-11, 2-12, 2-13) wins an Amazon gift card. Go. ** Here’s another brilliant guest post from my brother. Remember how I am SO not a pet person? Well, he is. And has been for many, many years, apparently. Also a fan of eclectic music. And big, […]

Duck Tales

I sort of promised you a story. And here it is. Once upon a time, we lived in Oklahoma. No, I am not making that up. We lived there for 51 weeks. And we loved everything, everything about it. Everything. (Except the job.) (And the weather.) Oklahoma is a lovely, wonderful place. As long as […]

Pets. Who needs them?

If you’re new here, you might need to take a second to discover how I feel about animals. Or just take my word for it: I don’t need anything else hairy, smelly, or germy inside my home. But you know, sometimes things just happen. The boy wanted a turtle, and his sister bought him one […]

“Kiss Your Face” Week: Day Five

Once again, a slightly more theoretical face-kissing today. The Birds. Not the freaky-fabulous Hitchcock film (although, if you could kiss a film’s face, we’d have YEARS’ worth of blog fodder). The real birds that live in my neighborhood. There are the ones in my yard — mostly robins and magpies and swallows — and they’re […]
