Meet Frisbee

A couple years ago, the year of my daughter's first Christmas, I became aware of the tradition of the elf on the shelf.  Although the idea seemed rather goofy, I really appreciated the fun that could be had with having something hiding around the house each day leading up to Christmas that she would be …

State of the World

I know I'm a little late to the discussion, but seeing as  the entirety of the world is atwitter discussion the tragic events that occurred in Connecticut last week, I figured I should offer up some sort of thoughts regarding the matter. First, it goes without saying that every time something like this occurs, a …

Sick Day Part 57

My family seems to be in a constant state of illness nowadays. . . Not cool.  Today is my daughter's turn to be struck with the plague.  She is currently chilling in the couch in my office watching The Muppets while cuddled up under her quilt (pictured).  Luckily she's not actually feeling all that ill, …

Breakdown

I have not been so good on getting stuff done lately. I've been feeling like this: I promise to move forward and, instead, be more like this: I had initially written this long drawn-out post explaining all this stupid crap my brain's been going through lately, but it all boils down to one simple thing. …

Star Trek Geek-gasm

I have to be completely honest here.  I've always been much more of a Star Wars fan than a Trek fan.  Those Trekkies seemed too clean cut and rule-abiding for me.  I'm all about the Han Solos of the universe, going around, blaster in hand, defeating the evil empire. Those like Kirk, Picard, Sisko, or …
