Unplug and go outside

It’s finally here. I head out tomorrow – and don’t think I haven’t been singing this in my head all morning – especially the part about “How can I live when we are parted?” (Foxy), and also “Tomorrow we’ll be far away” (except only maybe 20 miles max) and “Tomorrow is the judgment day” (it’s…

Top 10 reasons I haven’t been blogging

10) TECHNOLOGY I don’t own a computer – not one that works, anyway. My Macbook is from the year Two Thousand and Six, back when dinosaurs roamed the Internet. It barely turns on. Work has provided me with the privilege (?) of a PC laptop that blows hot air like [insert politician of choice], and…

RIP, Google Reader

Follow my blog with Bloglovin If you’re like me, you’ve relied on Google Reader to aggregate all of the blogs you follow into one long list.

iPhonetastic

I’m kind of a late bloomer.  I was born 2 weeks after my due date.  I didn’t kiss a boy until it was shocking that I hadn’t kissed a boy.  I still don’t know any rap songs. But this week, finally, years after everyone else, I got an iPhone. And it’s the most amazing thing…

Phone woe

Boring expenditures

I just got back from the DMV, i.e. The Worst Place On Earth. Actually, I experienced another place this weekend that would rival the DMV for that title: Micro Center. I took my fritzy Macbook to the Apple Store on Saturday, and the self-assuredly dubbed Apple Genius told me that yes, I needed a new…

Musicless

I am spoiled, and I am the first to admit it.  Why, you ask?  Well, among many other reasons, I have two identical black Macbooks – one personal, and one for work.  Let’s be real: that is just ridiculous.  More than anyone could ever ask for. But last week, my personal Macbook went kaput.  It’s…

Christmas casserole

This weekend, Facebook really chapped my ass (a phrase that I have recently decided is very worth using).  I tried to upload pictures from the JAM House Christmas Spectacular – at which we had a fantastic time and packed our home with more people than we ever imagined – but the old ‘Book translated my…
