My Favorite Nora Ephron Movie

I’m saddened, as are so many, by the death of Nora Ephron. She was funny and snarky and real and her dialog is second only to Aaron Sorkin. Her diner scene in When Harry met Sally is a classic and sadly that is pretty much how I order meals. I don’t seem to have the […]

Meet Fedora Dog!

We didn’t last long as a dog-free house. We missed Sharkdog (Akeesha) too darn much to come home to an empty house. This is Spenser. Spenser is a 7 month old long-haired Dachshund from South Carolina. He was rescued from a high-kill shelter by Furvever Dachshund Rescue. We have a family friend who is a […]

Celebrate ALL The Birthdays!

My daughter made me this birthday treat from brownies, frosting and a chocolate orange. It’s my favorite internet meme, which you may have seen in this post about using lyrics as a facebook status. So awesome. And so delicious now that I have deconstructed it – nom. We went to see American Idiot in Toronto, which […]

2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many […]

Sharkdog, You Will Be Missed

So we lost our doggy Akeesha on Monday. She was 14, so she lived a good long life, but we still miss her fiercely. Here are some of the posts I have written about her: Sharkdog Doghenge Doghenge Revisted Doghenge with a Vengeance – Henge Harder Sharkdog is not a morning dog She’s been going […]

Have We Discussed Creepy Santa?

My husband bought this Creepy Santa a few years ago. He doesn’t think he’s creepy, but I’ll leave that up to you. He is full sized (in my world anyway– close to five feet) and motion-activated. I try to sneak past him by doing things like vaulting over the banister or Marine crawling across the living […]

No. No, That’s NOT The Best Of The Seventies. At All.

I heard a “Best of the Seventies” station at the dentist the other day. It was an actual XM Station though, not Muzak, so there was no excuse. They played Abba, Neil Sedaka, Paper Lace, and whatever that Do The Hustle song is. This is NOT the best of the seventies. The best music of […]

Tyrannosaurus Rex’s Arms Are Not Too Tiny To Hold a Lightsaber

I went to Michael’s with my daughter. You would think that a craft store would be really boring, but there is a kid’s section where I found this really great light saber that flashed and made cool noises. It seemed like the only logical thing to when I was finished with it was to give […]
