While thousands of fellow bloggers are kicking up their heels (er, flats, I hope) at BlogHer’12, here I sit on my computer, living vicariously through them (and their tweets). I couldn’t make it due to health reasons but I sooooo wanted to be there this week, for the following reasons:
I haven’t been watching the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Relax. It’s not a crime.
However, if the International Olympics Committee could stir things up a little, I would totally watch. The current summer agenda includes sports such as badminton, handball, sailing, shooting, table tennis, race-walking (race-walking? Seriously?), and the hammer throw. Badminton? Oh yeah, that’s [...]
Since being introduced to Stumble, I have become a daily Stumbler…and, wow, is it addictive! I try to limit my time on Stumble, but I highly recommend it. After you fine-tune your interests and spend a little time there, you’ll be surprised how well Stumble “knows” you and starts showing you the stuff [...]

I’ve already listed my Favorite Christmas Movies so, of course here comes the list of holiday movies I can’t stand. There is really no need to number this list, is there? I mean, these movies are all pretty bad — it would just be an exercise in futility to try to rate them on [...]
I know, I know, here we go with another list, right? But they’re so much fun…and you’re reading it, so you must be just as bad as me! This one is actually numbered, so we can debate my Favorite Christmas Movies of all time.
10. The Santa Clause No, this isn’t [...]
Today’s topic is Top 2 Favorite Gifts you’ve received.
Wow. That’s tough. Oh, wait. No, it’s not.
1. My laptop.
I would be dead in the water without my laptop! But, W knows how important it is to me, so when my old one was acting up (either moving slower than I [...]
1. I missed Halloween yesterday because I haven’t been feeling well. I am totally bummed, because I missed seeing my 2-year-old niece in her pink poodle costume. 2. I am anxious to decorate for Christmas. Like really, really anxious. Chomping at the bit anxious. credit 3. I feel like death warmed over. My [...]
