Mid-Vacation Status Report

Okay, Pacific Northwest leg of the trip is done! I spent a wonderful six and a half days with my sister and her husband traipsing around Seattle, Northwest Washington and Vancouver. Today she drove us back down to the airport, and we arrived with three hours until boarding. I like that; there’s enough time to …

Pacific Northwest: Day 3

Blogging, Pacific Northwest Edition – Day 3! On Saturday I started the morning with a little Twitter in bed. That sounds dirty because the word “bed” is in it, but I guarantee it’s less exciting than it sounds. The call of coffee became too strong to resist, and so I moved into the living room. The unbelievably relaxing, peaceful, …

A Sasquatch in Minnesota

I have a new blog post up at the MN Skeptics Blog! A Bigfoot sighting in our own backyard? Cool! Thank goodness for all of the verbal interpretation of the blurry video, otherwise I never would have know that I was looking at a Sasquatch! Caution: Blurry video and huge leaps in deductive reasoning may cause nausea and/or uncontrollable …

Pacific Northwest: Day 2

My sis and brother-in-law are keeping us crazy busy! So even though this is our fourth day of vacation, I’m only caught up on blogging through the second day of the trip. Which is alright because it’s vacation, and that means there are no deadlines, right? Right. Day 2 took us to the wild and foreign lands of…duhn duhn dunh…Canada! We had …

Pacific Northwest: Day 1

The last couple of days have been odd because I’ve only had about three hours of sleep on Tuesday and Wednesday night. See, I had to finish my Dragon*Con costume and then pack up for two separate vacations. Best problems EVER. So I went to bed around 12:30am this morning and work up to the …

Happy World Photography Day

This post is a bit camera nerdy. But there are pictures for those of you who don’t like to read. Ooooo…zing! Ahem…it’s after midnight and I’m getting a little slap-happy. Moving along! Today is World Photography Day! In honor of WPD I got myself a treat. Okay, it wasn’t because of WPD, it was because I …

Wisconsin Weekend and Photo Contest

A friend of mine invited me and the Hubby to spend this past weekend in Wisconsin with her and her family. They have a GORGEOUS  house on a quiet lake in the Northeast corner of the state. We went tubing, jet skiing, boat cruising around the lake and flying through the woods on an ATV. We …

Don’t Fear Death

I saw this on Twitter yesterday, and I found it very moving. You’ll probably need to click on the image to make it readable, but I think it’s worth the mouse click. Or you can just read the transcription below. We are going to die and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are …

Order now – only one meeeelyon dollars!

Okay, here’s proof that work is slowing down. I was at home browsing through the Costco coupon book (clue one), and I decided to check out the cookware set on Costco online to find out how much the set would be without the discount (clue two). On the front page of the website I noticed …

Cruise, Costumes and Chores: A Weekend

I had my first full weekend all to myself in three weeks! Work is finally slowing down for TheBigProject. All of the testing is done and now it’s paperwork, documentation and repeat. There are still some late nights, but it should be tapering off to a more normal pace around here. Friday night after work I hung …
