BlogHer ’09, Here I Come

Posted by

I swore I was not going to be meta at all this month, but on the last day of National Blog Posting Month it’s kind of hard not to. Friday night we sat down with Genie and Rich and we ended up talking at length about what it’s meant to participate in NBPM, what we’ve […]

And we’re off!

Posted by

It seems like we just got here but today we’re going home. But before that, we’re headed off to an Antique show – it wouldn’t be a visit to my parents’ house without antiques. We actually did venture into a store yesterday! It was the Costco. And we parked right in front. And we didn’t […]

Thanksgiving at Home

Posted by

Jack and I are down in Norfolk. We’ve had a stunningly good Thanksgiving dinner. We have so much to be thankful for I could in fact write another month’s worth of posts about those things alone. It all comes down to folks, really. So my first thanks priority goes to my friends, my family, and […]

Typotheque 2009 Calendar

Posted by

Notebookism recently had a post plugging the Typotheque 2009 limited edition pocket┬ácalendar/sketchbook. I was in a whimsical mood, so I bought one even though I have a notebook that I really need to fill (that is a whole other post) and even though it had to ship from Denmark. There were some Concerned Noises coming […]

Chemistry Stories

Posted by

So. I made it to the Howard County Community College advising hours, and after looking at my unofficial transcripts, they OKed me for either or both of the remaining classes I need. After some thought I decided to take Chemistry first, in the regular-size semester, because it will be harder. I know this because I’ve […]

MHP-yay!

It’s not all that often that I find out that Federal law has actually touched my life in a concrete way. Last week I was feeling downtrodden when I was looking at my new insurance information (our company moved to a different parent blah blah) because it looked like I would be losing my mental […]

Monday Mundanity

Posted by

Here’s a fine post for a Monday, something really niggling and silly to think about. Why do some people turn on read receipt for every single email they send out? Do they really like to recieve approximately a million receipts a day in their mailboxes? I have turned on read receipt two times in my […]

A Nice Day

Posted by

I have had one of those very nice days. Nothing went haywire, nothing was particularly planned. I wanted to clean house and go for a walk which don’t sound like hefty goals but we probably haven’t let you upstairs in our house lately. We did manage to go for a walk. I’ve lived in the […]

Enrolled

Posted by

I got my letter from Howard CC that I’m enrolled. They make it super easy to figure out how to log in and register immediately. But now I’m faced with a choice, Chemistry in the spring or Microbiology? Whatever I don’t take in the spring I have to take in the summer, so I’m a […]

Gratefulness

Posted by

This whole situation with my professor has had my knickers in a right twist. I just couldn’t figure out what to do, and it’s obvious that he can’t figure out what to do and nobody else in my class could figure out what to do either. Naturally one night this week I pick up my […]
