And You May Ask Yourself, How Did I Get Here?

The Matrix is without a doubt one of my most favorite movies ever, not only for the kick-ass action sequences but also for its interesting philosophical questions. As someone who believes that the world we live in is largely a world of illusion through which we navigate to something deeper and more profound, I was […]

Immigration

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] (play me) I saw this little tidbit of wisdom a couple of days ago on Facebook.   I refuse to “like” any bullshit with hearts after it because it all comes from apps made by people hiding out in Slovakia who are just looking to harvest your personal […]

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

That’s a little Mister Rogers for you. It actually is a beautiful day.  A tad too cool for my tastes but I guess that’s what happens when you live in the Northeast; eventually, fall starts to rear its ugly orange, yellow and brown head. So this is when I need to go into overdrive to […]

The REAL Consequences of That Not-So-Fresh Feeling

The Tech Guru often comes home complaining about a certain lack of…hygiene amongst some of the peeps in his office.  I don’t think the airflow in there is so hot to begin with and then you add to that some b.o. and boy, you’ve got problems. (And headaches, according to the Tech Guru.) Most of […]

The Price of Beauty

I colored my hair last night, not because I’m graying or anything (I am but I don’t care), but because what the hell else was there to do? And I have colored my hair for years with no problem, just so you know, but I don’t know what happened last night.  All I know is, […]

I Almost Didn’t Post This But LeVar Burton Kind Of Said It Was Okay

I saw this thanks to someone who tweeted a link to it, and thought it was the funniest thing I have seen in forever.  If it’s not your cup of tea, too bad for you, but I loved it. Why didn’t I almost post it? Well, I tweeted the person it’s about to see if […]

Blessings

Okay, again with the Chookooloonks, but today she initiated #complainfreemondays on Twitter.  I think that, for the most part, it’s been a success: people have tried to find the good in things they might normally gripe about, like the sheer fact of it being Monday, or the gloomy weather outside. But it is interesting to […]

Beating the Blues

Fall is coming, there’s that tinge of coolness in the air, and for me, that means it’s time to get armed with my Weapons of Mass Destruction against the depression that usually hits me full force at this time of year. So, inspired by the incredible Karen Walrond (she of Chookooloonks fame), I decided that […]

Me Like Pretty Things

Okay, I know it’s 2010.  And I know iPads are cool – we have one.  And I know there are all kinds of cool scheduling apps for it.  (Actually, there aren’t as many as I would have thought. Come on, developers, get with the program! Get it? Get with the program? Okay, yes, it’s lame […]
