Tickle Me, Test


I really have no good reason for not posting all week. I spent much of my time catching up on the archives of the journals I read, because if I read one entry I must read them all. If there are links, I must follow every single one. My father’s OCD manifests itself in strange […]

Everyone check out this site today. I don’t know what to make of it, but I know I like it. It’s like poetry for your chest.

I’m an ‘Angel’


I realized, while changing into my sports bra yesterday to go running, that I never recounted the tale of Beedoo Buys a Bra. You know how some stories are funny only if you were there? This one is funnier if you weren’t. Probably because the hilarity would be compromised by your overwhelming embarrassment for the […]

Hummus, Books and Pecs


I don’t know why I hate being interrupted. It’s like my hatred of hiccups; it’s not really based on anything malicious or harmful, it just annoys the hell out of me. And if I’m interrupted either 1) while I’m eating or 2) with a stupid question, look out. It’s irrational, it’s knee-jerk, and I can’t […]

Nostalgia Revisited


I was reading this site today (I think because I needed to look up a name, but that’s how the real time wasting gets going) and now I am really sad that I am not seven years old and on my living room carpet, watching midday Nickelodeon. Nick, I miss you. And the people who […]

PSA: Hug Your Local Librarian


I was reading about the Oakland Library Book Drive from a few years ago, and it made me think about how much I absolutely love libraries. I worry that the advent of computers has caused library patronage to plummet in the last ten years—and understandably so, since no kid writing an essay on snails is […]

“More Matter, Less Art”


Happy Ostara, everyone. I think it was actually yesterday, but Blogger has been tinkering with the site, so I was down for a little bit. By the time the problem was fixed, it was too late to post (and, I am lazy). It’s a Moo point anyway, since it is nowhere near the first day […]

New Arrival


So I’m hoping this comes through all right; I couldn’t post yesterday since the site was having maintenance issues. We’ll see. I was making my shopping list for this weekend, and it has to be the oddest collection of random items, ever. Without all the food, which is pretty basic, it goes a little something […]

Great Big Sea


*YAWN*So, let me tell you about a good concert. Last night I saw Great Big Sea, native to Newfoundland and specializing in (as you may have guessed) glorified sea chanties. It should be said that I used to make fun of this band, nay, used to dislike them entirely. I would not say I hated […]
