Not So Sure About Those Christmas Carols

I woke up with Walking in a Winter Wonderland stuck in my head. Woke up with Walking in a Winter Wonderland. Say THAT three times fast. Anyway, I woke up to this. In the meadow we can build a snowman Then pretend that he’s a circus clown. She’ll say “Are you married?” We’ll say “No, […]

Randomness Part 138

Two People I Said “Hi” to in Public Because I Thought I Knew Them, but Really They Just Looked Familiar Because They Were Famous 1) Frank McCourt

Jani Lane, Barstools and Me

In this space where I really should be writing some sort of post about my BlogHer ’11 experience, praising the perfection that is the weather in San Diego, thanking Diva Cup for sponsoring me, telling you about the amazing people I met and posting pictures of my internet friends, instead I find myself wanting to […]

I Think I Lost Their School Pictures. Again.

Oh God, I think I lost my kids’ school pictures again. When my twins were two years old we got their very first school pictures from preschool. Both sets came back just adorable. Claudia had on a little pink and red dress and Ian was wearing a green striped sweater that made him look like […]

Here is Something I Didn’t Know Until Today

At Least I Think I am Funny

Last night I was at choir rehearsal and we were working on a particularly difficult piece of music. For Melissa, Lori, Elisa and Loralee it was the Mathias “Let the People Praise Thee, O God”, the piece that he wrote for Prince Charles and Lady Diana’s wedding. For everybody else it sounds like this. I’m […]
