One Extremely Fantastic Quick Take Friday

Remember my Ogre? (That’s him with the scowl on). Remember how he was studying for those harrowing qualifying exams which will officially make him ABD? HE PASSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As you can probably imagine, I’m near hysterics here. I can’t even write a coherent post. He found a cheap ticket and is flying in tomorrow afternoon to [Read More…]

Confession

I dragged myself and my box of kleenex to confession tonight. Since I converted to Catholicism five years ago confession has been my absolute favorite sacrament. However, the first confession I made was mortifying. It was such a terrifying experience, actually, that I lost sleep in the days before and ended up writing a list [Read More…]

Pathetic

I officially do not have the flu. I have a nasty cold and a bad case of melodrama. Oh, who am I kidding? This is what I have: In case you haven’t guessed, the Ogre is a bit of a stoic. When he gets sick he just wants me to leave him alone. He also [Read More…]

British People and Their Accents

One of these things are not like the others…yeah, that would be you, American Captain Jack.   I’ve been watching Torchwood lately, and I just have to say it. I love the way British people talk.

In Which I Want to Smash My Head in with A Hammer

Oh for the love of all that’s holy. I have the flu. And even more unfortunately, if that’s possible, this inane discussion over the relative status of my alcohol usage is still raging. Now the commenters have turned against each other, I guess because I decided not to get more involved, and then I decided [Read More…]

Happy Halloween!

The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my all-time favorite movies. It is, in my opinion, just everything a movie for children should be. Imaginative, scary, whimsical, terrifying, heartbreaking, and heart-warming, all at once. This year my sisters-in-law and I got together with our kids and let them eat pizza and M&M;’s and watch the [Read More…]

Fondue and Ferrarelle

…the heavens part and choirs of angels sing. No, really. My wonderful mom watched the female minions last night so that I could put Liam down early and fully enjoy my brother-in-law and his wife’s monthly supper club. Sasha Feroce made fondue, which she’s been dying to make for us for ages. She spent a [Read More…]

Bright Sun, Cool Air

No snow, but you get the idea These are the two things that make me happiest in all the world. I think I’ve known that for some time, but it was just driven home today how deeply my mood and general outlook on life is affected by the weather. Last night the Ogre and I [Read More…]
