The Day in Photos: The Way I Tell Myself That Its Okay

Nearly everything I like has an element of randomness. My Instagram page wanders from outfits to dogs to Dallas in the sun; from the novelty of bar bathrooms to videogame conventions and places where I am foreign. But Instagram is one of the most calculated, most “intentional” (as the kids say) things I do. I…

Zeno Clash – Same Game, Different Player

I just picked back up Zeno Clash, a game which I loved in spite of myself originally, but failed to complete on my first play through. I had started it circa 2009 or 2010, but then it, like most of the games I was playing, fell by the wayside when I got a job as…

Meeks Update

Thom took Meeka to the vet Monday, and found at she is not a surgery candidate. She is not bad enough at this time, which is good. She does need to take steroids, pain killers, and muscle relaxers, and rest in her cage for a month. She can’t walk or play or do anything. She…

Guest Post on Life in the Boomer Lane!

I’ve got a guest post up today on the blog of one of the bloggers from my Liebster award post. A post about my mom, and my perception of her, is up now on Life in The Boomer Lane. 

The Misexpectations Travel Blog

I had grand plans for vacation. As I packed, I photographed every item I brought, because I thought I’d blog my packing list and how I wound up wearing it. I thought I was doing one of my best packing jobs ever.  On vacation I want to be as sexy everyday as I wish I…

Confessions of a Bad Friend Crush

I think that I might have an internet crush on Herey at Rhymes With Fairy , because her posts always elicit a response from me. When I read her Why Can’t We Be Friends? – about “friend crushes” and how hard it can be to turn them into actual friendships, I felt a bit ashamed.  I think…

The Day in Photos – Sorta – Feb 16th and 17th

I didn’t do so well at doing one photo every hour, every hour that I was awake either on Saturday or Sunday, partially because some of Thom’s family was in town. It is hard to focus on my own obsessive compulsiveness while trying to converse and brainstorm activities for a mixed age and interest group…..

Valentine’s Day for Anti-Commercialists

I hate hearing people say, “I don’t believe in Valentine’s Day, its just a commercial holiday.” They might also call it “an excuse to sell flowers” or a “Hallmark holiday”. I’m not a big fan of everything pink, glittery, covered in hearts and draped with tulle, but holidays are a chance to have fun with people…

The Day in Photos – Sunday, January 13 2013

I tried to do the day in photos on Saturday but majorly biffed it by not doing anything interesting, then forgetting to take some photos. So here’ s Sunday instead. These are not the best cell phone pictures ever taken.. I used the native camera instead of Camera 360 this time.. and basically proved that…
