Gotye Making Mirrors Review

April 12, 2012

2 Comments

OK.  I feel like I’m the last one to arrive to the Gotye (AKA Wally De Backer) party, and not only that — almost everyone else has already gone home and I’m that latecomer who the host tries to prevent from coming in but can’t because they’re too drunk.  You know what I’m talking about. […]

I’m Not Writing A Novel has a new look!! It’s nothing fancy, as I’m still totally cheap and using WordPress for free.  Still, I think it’s mucho better than it was. Also, I’m Not Writing A Novel has its own facebook page now.  Everybody’s doing it… Jim at Just a Lil Blog, Lance at My […]

w00t! Today lovely Lynn from All Fooked Up is hosting me for her “Go Ahead, Amuse Me” series! Please go check out my post about post-surgery humor there (yeah, that shoulder surgery, that was yesterday), and be sure to check out Lynn’s stuff, too.  She’s MORE than funny enough to justify a Reader subscription.

Yesterday we decided to take a walk to Blue Monk to participate in their Sour Beer fest (more about Blue Monk and our sour beer proclivity here). We got showered and dressed and packed G snugly into his stroller. As M and I were getting our shoes, coats, scarves, earmuffs, and gloves on, I realized I’d […]

Really. The other night M and G and I went to our local cafe after dinner for some warm drinks and yummy dessert. G has a great time at the cafe. He loves to people watch, and always makes a new friend or two because apparently M and I aren’t the only ones who think […]

“Please,” I said, through tears.  Salty, danger-on-the-highway-inducing tears.  “Please let’s just take this exit.  We can go to the beach.” I didn’t really expect him to say yes, I just needed to fight. “You know I can’t” he said, looking out of the window transfixed as the exit for Half Moon Bay passed us by.

So this morning I had a NCT (nerve conduction test) and an EMG (electromyogram).  I would give you a link to these on Wikipedia, but there’s a blackout going on dontchaknow.  You’ll have to look them up yourself tomorrow if you’re really curious. This is in re: my frozen shoulder.  At my last appointment the […]

I am thankful for time off. I was blissfully unplugged from the interwebs (except for the odd foray in when I needed to look up Ricardo Montalban and Corinthian Leather in Wikipedia, of course) over the holiday break.  But now I’m ready to catch up on my Reader and find out what you all have […]

In that this is a post about nothing.  And probably not even in a funny way, but whatevs. —— A few days ago at work, I got an email from someone notifying me that a meeting was canceled.  This is a direct quote: “We apologize for the incontinence and will be rescheduling the call…” Teehee. […]
