Hey, I am not the only one who thinks that the Smiley looks like a pervert!

November 13, 2009 random

Tweet Jane over at They Call Me Jane has been calling for everybody to share their crazy search terms, i.e. the keywords with which people were led to your blog, and she calls this Friday The 13th, Share Your Crazy Search Engine Terms Day! It is Jane. Naturally I obliged. wanted to be in on it. […]

The white flag goes up…

November 12, 2009 random

Tweet Remember the tagline of my blog? These posts are supposed to be my therapy sessions. Ranting about the demise of Thanksgiving and gloating about making shotgun Christmas ornament is not very healing. The following is one of my therapy sessions. I am getting on the coach now. You have been forewarned… I am not […]

Bring back Thanksgiving! Please, no Christmas decorations until Black Friday…

November 11, 2009 marketing at work

Tweet Veterans Day. I always thought it is a fitting coincidence that Veterans Day falls in November, right before Thanksgiving. As you know, Veterans Day is celebrated in other parts of the world.  On November 11, 1918, at 11 am (Paris time), the Germans signed the Armistice that officially ended World War I.  The day […]

Forget glue guns: Metallic Permanent Pens are the only things you need…

November 10, 2009 no manual for parenting

Tweet This was the post I meant to compose this Saturday, right after I rushed the kids off to the Religious Education class kindly provided by the Catholic church.  Especially helpful since their mother is a Heathen.  As usual, we were late. But this year the teacher is nice. She never once gave me the […]

Really!?! I will show you how inscrutable I am in plain English…

November 9, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet Warning: This post should be filed under “Psychotic Ranting and Anonymous Foaming”, a category available from NaBloPoMo, (Thank you to whoever was wise enough to create this category…) in which I whine about stereotypes that caught me by surprise.  Please feel free to ignore me when I am behaving like a rabid dog.  Come back […]

Things I should be doing instead of agonizing over falling behind for NaBloPoMo…

November 8, 2009 random

Tweet I know myself only too well. I already missed the 8th post for this NaBloPoMo thing I decided to participate in. Deadline yesterday. But I am going to cheat by turning time backwards through the magic buttons on my blog dashboard. It is not because I am a religious person and I don’t believe […]

If you keep a “life” blog and therefore experience existential crisis on a regular basis…

November 7, 2009 random

Tweet You have got to read this: Blogging for Dummies by Aunt Becky (she’s actually young and hot) over at Mommy Wants Vodka.  As someone who has experimented with making my own bacon-flavored vodka, she had me at the name of her blog… When I stumbled upon her genuine, honest, tell-it-like-it-is advice about blogging and […]

“The Simple Grace of Sharing a Meal” Or, My first gig as a guest blogger

November 6, 2009 random

Tweet Velva over at Tomatoes on the Vine kindly asked me to be a guest on her blog.  I had to agree because if she was crazy enough to ask me, who knows what’s going to happen if I had said No to her? So, please hop over now (but NOT like a frog) and […]

When will this thing end?! NaBloPoMo #6: In which I talk about google doodle

November 6, 2009 random

Tweet This is me cheating again. It’s only the 6th day of NaBloPoMo, and I am already resorting to PHOTOs. Not even photos I took, but photos that I found on the Interweb!  Yeah, like y’all don’t have google at home?…  Since I have never cheated in my entire academic career, well, not technically anyway, […]

Day 5 of NaBloPoMo: When in doubt, talk about phobias…

November 5, 2009 random

Tweet I suck. It is only the fifth day of National Blog Posting Month and I am already wanting to quit. Life and work seem to have a way of getting into the way of daily blogging… I am totally kidding up there.  Blogging should be a supplement to life: a conduit to reflect on […]
