100% Acrylic…

Apologies to Meryn Cadell’s The Sweater Song, but it seemed appropriate. Also, I had no idea that Meryn had transitioned FtM. Of course he hasn’t released an album for about 10 years so I have kinda lost touch with his...

Power Up!

I got something this weekend I rarely ever get, and then something else that indicates hell must have frozen over: a busy Sunday out and a date. Not too much to say about the latter, really. We met over at...

Snail mail still has its benefits

In today’s mail I got my lease renewal and a letter from my bank advising that my secured account is being converted to an unsecured one. I have to admit that both of those things could have been sent in...

It ain’t like Judge Judy!

Small Claims Court is boring. I thought I’d be nervous or annoyed but no, just bored. I’ve learned my lesson though. All my outstanding debts are getting paid off ASAP! Even though the majority of people I encountered today were...

FLOSSY — 12 points

I’ve only kinda been keeping up with the Scrabulous drama because it is, not even kinda, a copy of Scrabble. I think Hasbro would be better off just making them an offer and letting the internet masses keep the game...

I judge you when…

Yesterday Chris and I were chatting when I sent him that day’s Penny Arcade and he mentioned that he belonged to the Facebook group I judge you when you use poor grammar. It was clearly a day for it as...

Super Awkward

So far this morning I’ve popped on the headphones, given people the evil eye and, as a last resort, thrown myself into my work when Super Bowl conversations got a little too loud or veered into my work area. I...

OMG!! Freddie’s was such a Drag!

I got a bit roped into going to the Miss Freddie’s Beach Bar Pageant last night. I am not a huge fan of drag because the further north you go, the less it becomes about entertaining and more about just...

If you ever worried that you were ignorant…

Justin sent me this link last night and I added it to my del.icio.us bookmarks, but I had to peek at it again this morning. The Strangest but Truest Posts of 2007 in TheBody.com’s “Ask the Experts” Forums: We’ve scoured...

I was just outed!

I was in the grocery store picking up items for my not-so-ambitious menu tonight and I got to the fresh herbs section. There was a woman there looking a little lost, so I took my headphones off in case she...

(Over) Heard in the Cafeteria

I am not making this up and I only include it as a reference to the previous entry. I went downstairs, not hungry for lunch today but craving for some Perrier with a slice of lemon. Yeah, I’m a snob,...

Foggy Day in DC

Foggy, in a fog, haven’t the foggiest… all very appropriate phrases for today, for me at least. Oddly enough I had a good night’s sleep last night, though in terms of dreams it was very strange. Some very odd tales,...

stats: a Sprig for 2008

née: Sprig of Mint for 2008 Looks great from the outside, no? I need some kind of quick-release for my camera. I have it with me all the time, but I rarely take it out because I have somewhere to...

The dream’s the thing!

I’m fairly sure that the recent hot spell is to blame for my sickness. It’s pretty much headache, dizziness and nausea, and it started right around when we hit the mid-60s. Not that it would normally have any effect on...
