I missed what?

It was Nation­al Gram­mar Day AND Gamemas­ter’s Day, and I did­n’t real­ize either until the day was almost over! It was date night, though, and my favorite GM and I did play, so at least there’s that. I’ll have to get him a make-up present, though. Do you know all those dif­fer­ent click-to-give sites? I […]

Plinky: Three Songs I’d Sing at a Karaoke Bar

Their text actu­al­ly says, “If you pay me enough, I’d sing these songs.” I would­n’t have to be paid, though. I’ve nev­er actu­al­ly been in a karaoke bar, but I love to sing, so there are plen­ty of songs that I would be will­ing to sing! “Some­thing to Talk About” by Bon­nie Raitt “Hold­ing Me Tonight” by Car­ly Simon […]

Any Knitters Who Like Graphic Novels?

cian­nait linked to Hand­knit Heroes yes­ter­day.  Imag­ine you’re a teenag­er, and you have some spe­cial pow­ers. Maybe even super­pow­ers. And one day, at a sleep­over, your best friend in the whole world tells you you’re not alone. So begins the adven­ture for a cou­ple of teenagers, a sin­gle mom and yarn shop own­er, and a […]

Scattered

Any­body else using Live­Mocha? Espe­cial­ly to learn French? I just joined (as Tech­noMom, of course) and would like to have “friends” there. I start­ed with the begin­ner lev­el, les­son one, and actu­al­ly learned a few new vocab­u­lary words. (My wee bit of for­eign lan­guage instruc­tion in high school sucked, to put it mild­ly.) You’re supposed […]

McCain Blogger Flubs His Roll

If you’re a gamer, you’ve prob­a­bly heard the hoorah by now. Michael Gold­farb, a blog­ger on McCain’s offi­cial cam­paign site added a lame anti-gamer slur to his rinse-and-repeat “but he was a POW!” bull­shit. Sam (and many oth­ers) respond­ed to the twit (who keeps com­ments dis­abled on his blog—afraid of a lit­tle com­men­tary, Gold­farb?). This […]

Good Reads Migration Finished!

That was not pain­less at all. The import fea­ture is tetchy, at best. I had to go through the entire list of 1300+ books and fix their “book­shelf” assign­ments as well as add some that just did­n’t import at all. I had over 1400 books in Now Read­ing, and I haven’t quite fig­ured out why […]

Sweet Saturday

Sam took Katie up to Repub­li­can land to pick up her new glass­es lens­es today—she went to the eye doc­tor while she was with my par­ents because they were out dri­ving and real­ized that she was squint­ing to read the road signs. Her eyes had­n’t changed much at her last few year­ly check-ups, but they […]
