I took the advice of Mr. McManlyPants and installed (well, I think installed is a rather strong term for ‘copied over some file and blammo, it works’ but whatever) ShortStat. And, eep. There are, like, people out there. People I obviously don’t know since there’s 300-some visits since late late late Monday night/Tuesday morning, and […]

Happy Happy

Well, it appears that the madness that is Christmas (etc.) has arrived, much more quickly than anticipated. Although it is sans snowfall, I’m sure it will all be well. Happy Holiday of Your Choosing to all, and to all a good night. Brief five, ’cause I’d hate to have another five like the last one. […]

Ok, a large clean-up post to get rid of all of the partial posts and drafts languishing due to Holiday business. There’s been no lack of blogging, just a large lack of completed blogging. And a lot of work. Are Men Necessary Maureen Dowd’s new book has been getting comment all over. After reading the […]

Christmas, part 1

Monday, November 28th, 2005

The Halloween stuff has been relegated to the spare room and attic-space, and everything for Christmas is scattered around the house, half in and half out of boxes. The garland is on the mantel, though no stockings are yet hung by the chimney with care. Two tiny trees are out, but Thanksgiving travel foiled our […]

Disney, part 2

Here’s the pictures from Disney. I’d stop and chat about ’em, but mostly I’ve used this long weekend to get errands run and stuff done around the house. Yay, cleaner and saner home environs!

Disney, part 1

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2005

I didn’t want to make a real Disney post until I had finished working on the photos, and working on the photos has taken a backseat to getting some work stuff accomplished, but rest assured I am making progress on both fronts at the moment. As you can see, there is at least one good […]

See ya later

We’re off to see the Mouse!

Onward knitting soldier

Monday, November 7th, 2005

Now that Halloween has passed, we move on towards the winter holidays, and return to popular pasttimes sat aside and dearly missed. Like an old friend: knitting. Instant gratification project: Spiral baby hat. I needed something that would go fast and be bright and exciting. This was perfect. Simple as can be, but quite cute. […]

Halloween, part 7

Saturday, November 5th, 2005

Halloween has come… and gone. I probably won’t get to the full set of 200-odd pictures for a bit, but I pulled out a few of my favorite things from this year. I wish I had gotten more pictures of the pumpkins we carved. I got a new Nightmare Before Christmas pumpkin carving kit, and […]

God watch.

I do like to keep an eye on the so-called Conservative Christian faction of our nation, and this week two interesting tales made it onto the radar. Were this any other time of the year, I might blather on indefinately in regards to what I think about the particular examples of humanity, but with jollier […]
