Memoir Title Meme

Lil­lian, anoth­er Blog365 par­tic­i­pant, tagged me for this meme. I don’t think I’ve ever been tagged for any­thing before!

Juno!

Katie got the Juno DVD last week, so we all watched it togeth­er Fri­day night. She’s been gush­ing about it since see­ing it in the the­ater and adores the sound­track, so we were cer­tain­ly curi­ous. It was an odd movie, fair­ly quiet—no car crash­es, big tragedies, etc. It was real­ly well done, and I was […]

ToTD: Fran Lebowitz

Take away a man’s actu­al sense of manhood–which is con­ven­tion­al­ly based on the abil­i­ty to work, to earn mon­ey, to be self-suf­­fi­­cient, to pro­vide for children–and you’ve got to give them some­thing else.

The lat­est ver­sion of Word­Press is out, so I upgrad­ed this blog right away, as I usu­al­ly do. Of course, the plu­g­in I use most, Now Read­ing, choked and won’t work any­more.  Le sigh. The prob­lems with the pre­vi­ous “new” WP ver­sion were nev­er tru­ly resolved, and now the author’s forum isn’t work­ing, either. I […]

SBQ: Balance?

The Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion of the Week (real­ly last week) is: How do you bal­ance your stitch­ing time with your oth­er oblig­a­tions such as work, house­hold chores, etc.? That isn’t real­ly an issue for me, as I haven’t been stitch­ing late­ly. I real­ly need to go buy some floss so I can get past a stumbling […]
