Pow! Zap! Zonk!

Awright, so I’ve succumbed and am hopping on the

bandwagon. Yeah, the thread has been creeping up everywhere but it’s still kinda fun. I think I first caught wind of it via Caroline who had come to it via MF. It’ll be blogged to death, to be sure…but it’s good to know I’ve got [...]


More and more I’m realizing how much I’ve let my friendships slide, in favor of solitude. Well, if you can call it that…what with the little man around and all. And a certain someone. So perhaps in favor of seclusion rather than solitude. I realize I don’t make the effort I used to. I [...]

Technicolor Headache

The little man and I both like The Beatles a great deal. Who doesn’t? I recall viewing their films when I was a child. The fuzziest recollections are of “Yellow Submarine“.

Slow Improvement

We can put it past us now. The month that was up to no good. Plagued by unfortunate circumstances. Mired in mishaps. The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad umm, month. Well, you get the idea. July is now over. And I’m looking forward to what August will bring us. Even if it’s not [...]
