My co-workers have nearly finished off the two dozen extremely sprinkle covered cupcakes I brought in this morning. I miss getting to dress up or do anything for Halloween so much. I’m such a costume person. In the continuing series of scanning old photos, I give you me from Halloween 1977 as Casper the Friendly […]
I wasn’t feeling too hot at work yesterday afternoon, so I came home early and cat-napped part of the afternoon/evening. I was freezing most of the time, despite it being warm in my apartment and me wearing several layers of clothes. I finally warmed up when I went to bed and slept decently, but I […]
As my iPod shuffled the song “Mulder and Scully” (a random British pop song from when I lived abroad) into my ears, workJeff™ informed me that the internets were reporting that the next X-Files movie is scheduled to start filming on December 10th. Oh sweet cinematic happiness. My favorite TV show ever gives me something […]
I just folded and turned on the heat in my apartment. It was 65 degrees when I got up this morning and it wasn’t that chilly post-shower. Mac has been looking extra fluffy the last couple of days. Earlier this week, it would be chilly in the morning but have warmed up by the time […]
but this news bite from the IMDB today made me smile: Theaters Begin Barring Children Some theater chains have begun barring children from theaters after 8:30 p.m. if they are not accompanied by their parents — in hopes of attracting more adults who are put off by the disruptive behavior of some kids, according to […]
November is National Blog Posting Month, or NaBloPoMo for semi-short. The idea is simple: post on your blog every day for the month of November. I’m taking this challenge reasons that are probably unnecessarily complex. My brain seems to be full of ideas and goals that I never share or attempt. I think so much […]
How long can I go before I turn on the heat in my apartment? I love fall. So crispy. I haven’t touched that dial yet, other than to have the A/C on for about a day earlier this month when it was horribly, unseasonably warm. This morning there was frost on the car windows of […]
and I’ll shamelessly post pictures of the day I was born and childhood birthday parties if I want to. Click on the photo for more pictures of my first few years of birthdays. Also, Happy Birthday to my favorite musician who was privileged enough to be born a year after me, John Mayer.
More details on the amusing way they found it (still in Coralville at the UPS warehouse without a label, nice) coming soon. Its been sent on next-day air and should be where it should’ve been all along tomorrow morning. One can only hope.
Grrr. Arrrgh. Weep. Last Wednesday, October 3rd, I took a framed item to The UPS Store in Coralville to have shipped to my Uncle Ron for his birthday which is tomorrow. And even that wasn’t easy. I went halfway through my lunch break intending to go to the Mailboxes, Etc. store that is downtown Iowa […]
