Obligatory Best of 2005 List

Friday, December 23rd, 2005

In no particular order… it’s a stream-of-consciousness type of thang. If it pops in the noggin next, it’s written next. Here goes: 1. Christopher Eccleston as Doctor Who. 13 episodes was not enough. 2. David Tennant as Doctor Who. He looks like he will be goofy and a little crazy, which is how I like […]

A slightly tardy picture of The Husband’s trip to Vegas. This is The Husband’s Brother at Luxor.

Impeach Bush

Saturday, December 17th, 2005

Yeah, it’s time. The President has been authorizing the NSA to snoop about Americans’ communications without getting a warrant first, and that’s against the law. He maintains he’s within his rights to do that sort of thing, but he isn’t. It’s time for him to go.

Wet Blankets Need Not Apply

So… my nifto ideas for logos and club names at work kinda went over like a lead balloon. I guess I thought they’d be good enough to pass muster, but the bosslady didn’t like them at all. I thought they were cute and, at least in one case, we need to get logos made and […]

Books and Finals

Tuesday, December 13th, 2005

So, spent an hour or so in line to get a couple of books signed by Sue Grafton at the Poisoned Pen, a fab bookstore in Scottsdale. The PP is an independent bookstore (a rare beast indeed) that somehow manages to attract every major mystery author for book signings. I don’t quite know how they […]

Friday Friday Friday! And Nutjobs for X-Mas

Friday, December 9th, 2005

The weekend is upon us, so rejoice and drink large amounts of Stoli. Stoli, t’ain’t just for breakast anymore. Christian wackos offend me. There’s a fundamentalist-wacko group out there that is pressuring businesses to include Christmas in all of their holiday advertising instead of defaulting to the politically correct Happy Holidays greeting. (I.e., Target ads […]

Um, Stuff

Wednesday, December 7th, 2005

be sorted @ nimbo.net Whee! I guess? I loves the movies but I haven’t read the books, so… huh. Universal truths: Burned cookies taste bad. A fork is a poor substitute for a hairbrush. Between death and taxes, taxes will piss you off more. Uh, so, the final last night… it’s over, so that’s a […]

Tea and Yoga and Onions, Oh My

Tuesday, December 6th, 2005

Tea review! I am a Republic of Tea fan. Not only do they make excellent tea, but they send out a catalog with free tea samples quite frequently. I haven’t actually purchased anything via catalog from them before, but I have bought enough tea tins and bottled teas in stores to keep the company floating […]
