and it isn’t even 9 yet?!

Finally! Brisk weather! Praise Jeebus. This also meant that I was sort of freezing my tush off while moving around the house this morning before heading out, but I’ll take this over the heat we’ve had the past few days....

Looks like mornin’ in your eyes

Apparently it has become impossible for me to sleep in past 7am. No matter how much slacking off/staying up late I was doing the night before, I still roll over on the non-workdays thinking that I might have stayed in...

Every day’s the 4th of July…

Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are! Happy National Coming Out Day everyone. It’s also Navy Day in DC… coincidence? You be the judge. Up too early today, but it’s not really a bad thing. I made it out to...

tv: Say it ain’t so, FOX!

When I wrote a little while ago about US remakes of UK shows, I mentioned that the Absolutely Fabulous remake never saw the light of day. There were some attempts and pretenders to the throne, but thankfully they all fell...

Life’s troubled bubble broken

I’ve got meetings and tasks and all sorts of work crap today. Needless to say, I wish I had her job. Between the festival on Saturday and my continued indulgence of food to nearly rival the festival on Sunday–sadly with...

I tolerate them with all my heart!

On the drive out yesterday, the topic of the debate came up, of course. One thing mentioned was that some of the larger gay blogs didn’t really take on the topic of each VP candidate’s (and/or their campaign’s) stance on...

A word of advice…

Don’t provoke a mime on stilts. The Maryland Renaissance Festival was a lot of fun today, ate way too much, drank way too much, closed the festival out yet still made it home at a decent hour. A great day...

Average Joe, Main Street, Russia… Maverick!

I didn’t even think about it, but last night was pretty themed. I made salmon and apple pies, just like a good Alaskan Maverick Energy-Producing Hockey Mom would! I watched the debate last night even though I was on the...

FoodBeer!

FoodBeer! Ya gotta love it. It’s like watching an old film about or going on a World’s Fair/Epcot tour of The Kitchen of Tomorrow. “No time to stop off at the bar with the fellas after work? Just make sure...

Unlimited Power!!!

Allow me to–probably–misquote Are You Being Served: Miss Brahms: What’s it like having so much power? Capt. Peacock: Frightening! That’s sort of how I feel being queer. We apparently have a staggering amount of power over world events. Just recently,...

Your eyelids are getting very heavy…

Anyone else feeling kinda drowsy today, or is it just me? Maybe the change in season is to blame or more likely today it’s the thrilling tasks I’ve had to work on. Mostly replacing irrelevant columns of numbers with different...

food: The other white candidate…

I’m not sure what it is about 2008, but bacon is really making a name for itself! Just yesterday we were discussing a new treat from the Minnesota State Fair, deep-fried chocolate-covered bacon. That doesn’t make me hungry as much...

video: ‘atta girl!

At some point this weekend I was meant to be working on my employee self-evaluation and that has, so far, failed to materialize. But for some reason I was having rather apocalyptic dreams* and woke up hella early, so I’ve...

News from the Future!

I know I should have shut up and shut down for the day blog-wise and brain-wise by now, but seeing the same sort of thing twice in a row was too good. Just like that show Early Edition*, news sources...

video: Good ol’ days?

Something about the recent flood of alumni finding me on Facebook feels a bit like this moment from The Simpsons: Get the latest Flash Player to see this player. [Javascript required to view Flash movie, please turn it on and...
