Meet Archie

Archie is the newest member to our household. We talked for a while about getting a third cat but before it didn’t seem right. Then one day a friend of ours on Facebook posted that she’d rescued a cat and was wondering if anyone wanted to adopt him. For some reason I was immediately drawn […]

My First Week Of Coconut Oil

I’d heard of coconut oil for a while, especially from my brother, but I figured it was just another one of those health things that would eventually disappear and it would be another thing…like kale. But on this past Saturday I found myself feeling really run down to the point of just giving up on […]

HIMYM Came Full Circle

I’m sad that so many people didn’t enjoy the ending because Barney and Robin didn’t end up together. When Dawson’s Creek ended I was disappointed that she didn’t end up with Dawson but I didn’t write the entire show off because I didn’t get the ending I wanted. In the end I cried because a […]

Well, technically they said She RULES but I’m just gonna go with We rule, as we both do. So I contacted Rob Thomas (creator of Veronica Mars) about this Fan of the Week thing they had going and I was trying to win for my stepdaughter: I noticed that this week they hadn’t posted the […]

I’ve had breakups but usually none of them lasted longer than a year. Losing my baby boy Pilot was the most painful thing I’ve ever gone through in my 34 […]

Goodbye My Baby Boy

Back on my lap again.

I had no choice but still I had to suck it up and do what was best for the sweetest little furboy on the planet. My little guy who has given me so much happiness over the past 9 years, I had to let him go. He’s been such a fighter his entire life because […]

I Don’t Hide My Feelings Well

  Politics are more in our face than ever right now. I have a lot of opinions on stuff that is happening right now and I’m not good at keeping those opinions to myself. In some ways I suppose it’s a good thing because people know where they stand with me one everything but it’s […]

British Telly Guru?

I guess when people need a new British show to watch they come to me. I love that even if it is like a neon sign about what a dork I am and how little of a life I have (particularly in the winter months). I’m always looking for a new UK show to glom […]

TV To Watch on Netflix

  I have basically no cable anymore (or what I lovingly call “Ghetto Cable” which is about 15 basic channels) I survive mostly on Netflix and a little bit of Hulu Plus. Just when I think I’ve watched everything I end up finding something new to watch. It’s like heaven for me, I love finding […]
