And there you have it.

  Yes, I think this is year five for me. I had to hide some posts from previous years for various reasons. Ah mysterious Jyllian, perhaps just a bit. Totally unrelated to anything: James just said how he didn’t want a ham for Xmess dinner. Because the leftovers oppress him …

When red-haired people are above a certain social grade their hair is auburn. ~Mark Twain

“She hath more hair than wit, and more faults than hairs…”~Willy the Shake I’m starting to wonder if my hair has become too much to keep up. Yes, in the scheme of things hair is negligible, but personally, I think it has a lot to do with how we see …

Just Write!

Ok, here goes. The other day, A post I read at Mental Mosaic , written by the effervescent Tui Cameron, got me thinking. And this is a BIG circle so bear with me. I noticed that all my writing projects—in school, jobs or personally have 3 distinct points on the …

Testing Windows live writer

As much as I don’t want to get any more involved in microsoftlandia than I already am (yes yes I know, I’m an MCSE, but I see all the shortcomings… well Blogdesk doesn’t deal with tags so well and I’m trying to see if this will. J and I are …

This used to be a mommy blog

And it still is because while I am many things–geek, reader, cat lover, wife–on the day the Bean was born, Mother became my chief identifier. I have always been independant. I’ve often gone my own way, usually uniquely attired. I didn’t just march to a different drummer, but a different …

“How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being.~Oscar Wilde

Just dropping in to say that any second now I’m going to find my rhythm and start writing here regularly again. It’s been quite a transition to go from the insanity of school to working full time. It’s an improvement on so many levels, but now we need to find …

Blindsided by music

The following outpouring brought on by watching Emily dance unreservedly to Clementine by Pink Martini. If I ever get my video rendering capabilities up to snuff I’ll post a link here. Just trust me-it is 7 year old interpretive dance at its best. You know-remember how YOU felt being seven …

Only by acceptance of the past will you alter its meaning. ~T.S. Eliot

Ah where have I been? I have been enjoying the hell out of the swine flu. I’ve had fever and barfing and all sorts of horrible other things for the past almost week. I’m still so fatigued I can barely move. We’re so behind on Xmess I don’t know how …

“All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither,

deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; renenwed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king.” J.R.R. Tolkien   I can’t get out of the habit of reading YA fiction …

Nostalgia

Sad, all the work I put into the M.A.T. program. It is good to have this though. I did this before all the yuck started. You know what’s funny? I started doing nablopomo this year, and said offhandedly…”I just want to see how many times I want to quit.” Huh. …

Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are. ~Bertold Brecht

I’m going to start with the happy first. I don’t want to start with the sad or I’ll write two lines and stop. It’s been too long since I’ve been here! I’ve been writing in my private journal and writing papers. Lots of papers. I haven’t written papers, well since …

Your shadow at morning striding behind you /Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;/I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

~T.S. Eliot from The Wasteland Again and still it is hard to find the desire to say the things I used to say here without much effort. I have always written easily and frequently, until about December of last year. A horrid thing happened and simultaneously my desire to write …

Announcing your plans is a good way to hear God laugh

(the quote’s from Deadwood, only one of the most beautifully written (and yes I mean that) works on television in recent memory. ) Well, let’s see..I’ve passed the first set of tests. I had to delay taking them since I was on jury duty and couldn’t get excused. Jury duty …

Where we keep our soul

I’ve been really occupied with The big Goal, of which I am now 1/3 of the way through. I’ve not spoken of it before because I was more than a bit nervous about taking all the tests I’d need to take. I haven’t taken any kind of test since about …

More than a Black Eye

My town has taken quite a beating recently. And it both angers and saddens me. By now everyone has read A Boy the Bullies Love to Beat up,Repeatedly. Or it seems like everyone. And the blogosphere has exploded with this story. Many of them condemn Fayetteville. I find that part …
