The lives of the Doctor

It’s very late, I can’t sleep, so I started thinking about Doctor Who. Because what else do you do at 3 in the morning? I’ve been rewatching the Amy/Rory/11 seasons lately and I have a theory I’m working on, a theory about the last three doctors (9, 10, 11). Wanna hear? Of course you do….

My current favorites:

Because blogging assumes that the internet cares about the minute details of one’s life, I will now share my current favorite things: TV shows Revolution Arrow Castle (still) NCIS (still) Sherlock (still) Doctor Who (always) Books Just read the first two books of Divergent. Saving up for the last one. Good reads but not for…

Oh, dear. It’s a Frozen post.

Wow, Frozen sure has stirred up a lot of emotions. I’ve heard rabid ravings from those who love it and those who think it’s the most horrible movie since Shrek. Actually, I think this has gotten more resistance than Shrek which is full of crude innuendos and bathroom humor. I must admit to being mostly ambivalent to Frozen. I…

Excelsior!!

I am socially inept. I am uncomfortable in social settings because I just know that I will say or do something stupid. I obsessively analyze recent social encounters to check for said stupid things. And if I did do something stupid, I will anguish over it for the next ten years. True story. It seems…

Violin, -lin, -lin!!!

Right now I’m listening to Laura’s CD from her violin book. She has been so blessed to have the chance to learn violin. We are so grateful to those helping make this possible. And I think it’s worth every penny for one reason: behavioral changes. Right now, Laura needs achievements. She needs to see progress….

Aaaaahhh….

Can you hear that?  That is the sound of the end of a semester.  The exams are done, the prayers over the tests and papers have been said, and you’re just waiting for grades.  I’m feeling particularly relaxed about the end of this semester because I have decided what I’m going to do with my…

Bonbons…

Does that word have a hyphen in it?  I can’t remember. You know, I’ve decided that the best way to make my daughter and myself happy is to make her work.  After all, what are kids if not free labor?  I can laze around like I am right now while my daughter cleans her room,…

Of wild bikinis…

(or “Green Lantern is my husband.” or “Can I be your Silver Surfer?”) Got your attention with that title, huh? The first alternate title was just given me by my daughter.  She announced that she got a teapot from Green Lantern, who “is my husband” and buys her food to give to her mother.  How…

Happy Father’s Day & trivia

Happy Father’s day to my dad and Handsome! And, now, some trivia to astonish and amaze.  Things you may not know about me, didn’t want to, were afraid to ask, or (if you’re weird) desperately wanted to know.  😉 I tried to start a blog before, got scared and ran away.  It was called Red…

Can you dig it?

I know, a hopelessly horrible title.  But I’m excited! “But, why?”  You ask? Our garden will be “go!” next Saturday!  Whether the weather cooperates or not, I will have seeds in the ground.  There are plans to plant the corn in our community garden on the fifth, and Handsome and I will take the opportunity…

Tip me over and pour me out!

Have you ever had one of those days?  Where you have to switch math classes, attend a 3-hour art class, and try not to throw up?  Meanwhile your credit hours seem to be breeding and you had to argue with your doctor at your appointment in the morning? You don’t have those days? Oh, I…

Horatio, otherwise known as Bob

I had a real Horatio moment earlier today. ‘Horatio moment?’ you ask yourself.  ‘What on earth could that be, and who made up such a silly name for whatever it is?’  Yes, I know you’re thinking it. You remember Horatio, the trusty (if ultimately unfortunate) sidekick from Hamlet.  I’ve always loved that line from early…
