[NOTE: My kids and I started a summer writing challenge: using a word or general theme to create some piece of writing each week. My 10-year-old suggested, “pineapple” and the following is my contribution.] Wendy didn’t remember when it started. She only knew the story, one that her family liked to tell to just aboutContinue reading “Pineapples”

Our house elf lets his hair down with Christmas approaching.
~ My kids don’t care for Sesame Street, but I’m nostalgic for that theme song. And while I’m more of a Jimmy Kimmel fan than Jimmy Fallon, this particular clip made me smile. The Roots and muppets playing simple instruments (and rapping!)? What’s not to like?
~ Convos with my Two Year Old, Season 2, Episode 1 (as I chant, “please don’t jump the shark, please don’t jump the shark”…)
We have officially passed the one year mark in our Massachusetts house and have signed a lease for another 12 months. Not a week goes by where I don’t miss the relative luxury we lived in while in Northern Colorado, but it’s getting better. If Colorado was my fat pants in terms of mind-numbing comfortContinue reading “Living in History”
Prefunerale Luigi Virgillito from Ground’s Oranges on Vimeo. ~ A pre-funeral celebration, parodying 18th birthday vanity videos popular in Southern Italy. And now that I’ve seen a few of those pre-diciottesimo videos this is so much better in every possible way. It’s weird, has great imagery, and shows that Americans haven’t cornered the market on narcissism in aContinue reading “Video Snacking”
Breaking Bad as American Gothic by Milbo. I’ve gone on a full blown Netflix bender over the last few days, staying up to nearly 1 AM each morning in my attempt to squeeze every possible episode of Breaking Bad into the shortest amount of time possible. It’s a good thing I just gave the show aContinue reading “I’ve Got a Breaking Bad Habit”

~ Episode 8

~ Episode 5.
~ This will become the first video series I have ever subscribed to!
~ I should have watched this years ago. Could have saved myself from many embarrassing dining experiences.
~ I read a Tweet recently where someone said if they were going to wear a computer on their face they would pick Apple as the designer and not Google. I think I’ll pass on both options, thanks!
~ While not a big fan of cat videos, this one is good. Most memorable quote: “Like Sisyphus I am bound to hell.”
~ I still feel that way about olives.
~ Okay. I couldn’t have a blog without a cat video or two…
Well, if you do have to lose your life’s savings while playing carnival games, I suppose a giant stuffed banana with dreadlocks isn’t the absolute worst thing you could walk away with… Photo found on Flickr from Randi805
