Teddy FTW

I have been nominated by Claudette (a writer of words, etc.) for a major award. (Or maybe I'm just channeling Ralphie's dad, aka The Old Man, from A Christmas Story.) Instead of a leg lamp though, it's a Special Blogger Award. I'd go into more detail, but it's some real high-level stuff and I'm not … Continue reading Teddy FTW

Tit’s the Season

Funny how quickly we fall into old habits, huh? Like not posting blog entries? In my defense, there have been many distractions over the past ten days. Such as: Christmas. Food and drinks. (Sometimes in the same glass!) Fun stores. Amazing scenery. Video games. Even Elvis managed to get in on the action, and if that … Continue reading Tit’s the Season

NNWM/29: Turning 24 Into 10

When I got to work this morning, I told my coworkers how happy I was to be back in the office. They assumed I was joking, but I was deadly serious. I feel like I've been cooped up for days. Probably because I've been cooped up for days. Vacation felt like work, so in this … Continue reading NNWM/29: Turning 24 Into 10

Beautiful and Treacherous

We are back home today. Smartest move I ever made? Taking the day off. I knew we'd want a chance to recuperate. What I did not expect was for the city to shut down thanks to a surprise snow and ice storm yesterday - one that made the long drive back both beautiful and treacherous. … Continue reading Beautiful and Treacherous

Home is Where the Hotel Is

The first thing my mom said to me when we got back home from vacation was, "When are you moving to Utah?" "We're not," I replied. "Why would you think that?" But I knew exactly why she said it. Whenever we go someplace new and have a good time there, we get the itch to … Continue reading Home is Where the Hotel Is

One Mile Closer to the Sun

There was a moment Tuesday afternoon when I thought I was going to die. I was standing on a platform 7434' in the sky, looking down at a distressingly thin pair of cables about to whisk me on a 60-mph, 1400-foot drop, wondering how I'd gotten myself into such a jam. Maybe I'm being a … Continue reading One Mile Closer to the Sun

Happy Birthday Two You

Monday was my birthday. Well, not really. But on Facebook it was my birthday - all part of a great social experiment, if you will. Three days later, I'm not sure how to feel about the results. On the one hand, I have a lot of well-meaning friends who serenaded me with heartfelt birthday wishes. … Continue reading Happy Birthday Two You

My Subconscious is on Sabbatical

I recently filled out a PTO request at work, but accidentally asked for 5 weeks off instead of 5 days. My boss got a good laugh out of that, and I did, too. Until I started thinking about how wonderful five weeks off would be, and then I was like, wait a minute...why are we laughing?! … Continue reading My Subconscious is on Sabbatical

Don’t Rest on Your Laurels

I came across this blog post the other day. Apparently, it's gone viral. When I saw it, I immediately thought of stealing this guy's idea, only instead of talking about a mistress as the title alluded - it's called I'm Dating Someone Even Though I'm Married - I would turn things around and talk about dating my … Continue reading Don’t Rest on Your Laurels
