Geeky Christmas to All!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Season’s Greetings! I’ve been enjoying my holiday week. I did have to go back to work yesterday and today, but I was starting to get that panicky Ohmigod-there’s-going-to-be-300-emails-in-my-inbox-when-I-get-back! feeling anyway, so it was time. And I do have Monday off, so there’s that. This year it was a very geeky Christmas under the …

Married People Conversations: Dream House

Sunday was gorgeous. The sun was shining, all of the snow had melted away, and it was a balmy 40F. The Hubby and I decided to walk up to Calhoun Square to make some much-needed Vitamin D, and to stop at Jimmy Johns for sandwiches (well…a sandwich for him and a gluten-free lettuce wrap for …

Calculus: The Musical

On Tuesday a friend invite me to join him for a show at Huge Improv Theater called Calculus: The Musical. It was a small production. Two actors portrayed many different characters, there was no intermission, and there were several frenzied costume changes during the show.

Banachek Visits University of Minnesota

I have a new post up at Minnesota Skeptics about Banachek’s recent mentalism show at the U of MN! Here’s an excerpt: The opening bit was a card/”body language reading” trick.  Before I tell you the audience’s perspective, I have to go back to when the Hubby and I walked into the auditorium.

I think this is a good follow-up to the American Family Association’s Buster Wilson explaining to us why people like him are fighting for traditional marriage (hint: it’s not because …
