Mah tahred hurts

Read it pho­net­i­cal­ly. When I’m real­ly tired, I fall back into the Alaba­ma accent. Made it to my appoint­ment this morn­ing. Made it to Katie’s appoint­ment on the oth­er side of the world. Then the car would­n’t crank. In fact, it would­n’t do any­thing at all. Not even the auto­mat­ic door locks were work­ing. No […]

All-Snakes Day?

Is any­body cel­e­brat­ing that this year? I’m out of touch with the pagan crowd any more. I think the St. Patrick­’s Day parade here in Atlanta was can­celed because of the tor­na­do Sat­ur­day. I was at home all day, so I did­n’t both­er wear­ing green or even think­ing about it. One of the “dai­ly quote” […]

Review: Carpe Demon by Julie Kenner

I’m way behind on book reviews, so I’ll try to do one each day for a bit. Empha­sis on the try. I’ve read some great stuff late­ly that deserves the atten­tion! I’ll start with the most recent book, Carpe Demon by Julie Ken­ner. It’s the first book of the Demon-Hunt­ing Soc­cer Mom series. I don’t […]

Who Is the Funniest Twitterer?

Shashi Bel­lamkon­da came up with the idea for this poll, and gath­ered the nom­i­na­tions. I’m just host­ing it for him :-) The poll opens at 5 pm EST today and will close at mid­night EST on Sun­day, Decem­ber 10. It does­n’t mat­ter whether you vote in the side­bar or in this post—all the votes go to the […]
