Pregnant Barbie

Work is eating my brain!!! For the last two weeks I’ve been working 9-12 hour days, commuting home, having a quick snack or fast food and sitting on the couch for one episode of Futurama – which is less about unwinding and more about submitting to my cat’s demand for lap time after not seeing …

Road Trip: The House on the Rock

It’s time for another adventure! I’m heading downtown now to catch the MegaBus. *shudder* I’m not a huge fan of riding the MegaBus; they sell incredibly cheap seats (I bought a ticket to Madison for $5), so families with lots of kids tend to ride. Also, the last time I rode they oversold the bus …

Sudden Spring Storm

We had a bit of a storm in Chaska yesterday. It was amazing how quickly the weather changed! I work in an office with a window, and at one glance the sky was a brilliant spring blue and the next it had turned uniformly gray. Then dark, heavy storm clouds started rolling low across the sky. I ran outside …

I Dream of Michelle Bachmann

In which my usually supressed snark emerges via the subconcious circus we call dreaming: While wearing a wire (for some reason), I found myself in a conversation with Michelle Bachmann. Actually, the fact that I was having a calm discussion with Shelly B. instead of going red from yelling at her smug, righteous, durp-eyed face is what …

Interwebs – you waited for me!

I wasn’t sure you’d still be here when I got back! So, yeah. Hey. How ya doing, Internet? My name’s Brianne, and I’ve been out of you for about a week and a half now, but I’m super excited about getting back into you. Work has been crazy, but in a good way. I like being busy, having challenging …

Signs of Spring: Robins and Goslings

I found these two over at the Lake Wood Nature Center in Richfield, MN. If you haven’t been, you must go! It’s hard to believe that you’re in the middle of the woods and also so close to 35W on that section between Bloomington and Minneapolis. American Robin This soon-to-be Mom or Dad was on the …

Signs of Spring: Valley Fair

One of the ways that I can tell it’s spring is Valley Fair is open again! I may have already visited three times in the past month. Not that there would be anything wrong with that, if it were to be true.

Books – How They Work

I’m out of town traipsing around the woods this weekend, so I’ll most likely be unable to respond to comments and the like (we’ll see how good the 3G is in the state park this year). But I do have a few posts queued up until I return to regular blogging on Monday (or so). …

The Challenges of Being a Skeptic

I have a new blog post up over at the Minnesota Skeptics blog! The Challenges of Being a Skeptic In 2009 I discovered The Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe. Shortly thereafter I started reading skeptical blogs and books and listening to other skeptical podcasts. In 2010 I found local meetups and attended my first skeptics’ …
