For possibly the first time, I have been glued to my TV, watching the 2014 Winter Olympics. I never really “got” the hype about the Olympics but this year I have been awestruck by the figure skating portion. Now I totally “get” it…the excitement and all the hullabaloo about the Winter Olympics. But when [...]
You probably have an opinion on the most dangerous jobs in America. I know I do…and I’m going to hazard a guess that most of them aren’t listed on this infographic of the 10 Most Dangerous U.S. Jobs.
I was a tad surprised at what was listed — and what wasn’t:
I started watching The Office in Season 2 and have been a devoted fan ever since. One of my favorite aspects of the series is when Jim pranks Dwight, which happens a whole lot. I was able to catch a few of the last times when Jim pranks Dwight while watching The Office Season [...]
I recently read 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Me at Dear Crissy and was…inspired, as they say.
1. I very rarely drink alcohol. It just doesn’t agree with me, so I tend to avoid it for the most part, although I will have the occasional drink.

According to the Bookoo Regifting Survey, participants [...]

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 [...]
I love Christmas. I love trivia. I love lists. And away we go…
1. Santa Claus was originally depicted as an elf until 1931 when Coca Cola portrayed him as human (thank goodness…elves freak me out!).
