Yankee Doodle Dandy

I know it’s not popular to be patriotic. I know this country is steeped in centuries of ignorant, violent, dangerous outlooks and behavior. So this isn’t gong to be an ‘I know this but…’ set up. It is what it is and I hope we are on a path to fundamental change. Our country isContinue reading “Yankee Doodle Dandy”

ICQ over DSL later?

Our cabin is struggling this year with connectivity.  It happens, mountain problems.  If we were here for a week no biggie but when you’ve moved operations of your tech company for a few months it’s a big deal that your download rate is .07 and upload .06.  Don’t even ask about sending a text orContinue reading “ICQ over DSL later?”

Lightning Bug

I grew up calling them fireflies.  It’s the eternal pop vs soda debate. When I got to college in Boulder, in spite of all the times I skied out in Colorado, I was made aware that fizzy drinks were called pop.  Lol. Ok. People had full on debates, dare I say fights, about this.  WhatContinue reading “Lightning Bug”

Skin Deep

Let’s stir the controversy pot today. I’m caramel colored, so to speak.  Or café au lait to embrace my NOLA roots. I’ve never had a problem with this description of my coloring or other food related metaphors. Not long ago, I was made aware that this type of description is frowned upon and considered racistContinue reading “Skin Deep”

Napoleon Complex

You’ve heard a decent bit about my one little rescue diva hot mess.  But I have another rescue dog.  This one is not pure bred like the girl though they told us he was. It doesn’t matter that’s not why we get dogs. He also fits right in with our crazy. We are all convincedContinue reading “Napoleon Complex”

Poppolio-M

A few years ago I took a hike with my youngest. My oldest was at sleepaway camp and my SO was working. So I grabbed my little gamer and said enough screens let’s go for a long walk and we did. We got a bit lost and went a smidgen longer than I intended butContinue reading “Poppolio-M”

Seasonal Disorder

I only like the rain at night when I’m going to sleep. Or on a lazy day where I really don’t have anything pressing to do and I can stay in my pajamas all day with my hair in a messy Pebble’s bun. Otherwise, rain is a drag. I hate trying to get to workContinue reading “Seasonal Disorder”

Island Time

I’ve been taking naps. This is not my natural state of being. During the rest of the year I am on like the Energizer Bunny. It’s exhausting for everyone around me. But when I hit the island or the mountains my body suddenly shifts to this time. We call it Island Time in that itContinue reading “Island Time”

Netflix and Chill

One of my mom friends is my link to all the TV that I need to see. Well I have two friends who keep me in the know but I hear from the one more often. The other one will drop her knowledge on our occasional roller blade sessions. But the first mom is alwaysContinue reading “Netflix and Chill”

Cover and Weave

I wrote a post on SM warfare a few days ago and in between I had a random response to one of my post that looked like the beginning of a ‘fight’. I haven’t had many people do this and it’s comical that the few times it has happened it has been on a silly,Continue reading “Cover and Weave”
