Easter Bunny Knockin’ On My Door

We had some hail damage during the recent bad weather, so we are having our roof replaced this week. The first step is to bring out one of those industrial trash bins they leave in your driveway. So, we woke up this morning at ten til seven when the thing arrived, banging around, and the […]

Zombies in Decatur

Okay, I didn’t actually see any zombies. I was in Decatur, going to the library there to find a particular reference book for nerd purposes. Turned down Sycamore, (I think) and started seeing “Zombie Land” everywhere on director’s chairs. Big cameras I had seen on Ponce began to make more sense. Unfortunately, I was driving […]

Snow Day!

Okay, the snow was yesterday, but school’s out today. Which is awesome. We played Candyland early in the day, then headed out in the snow, had a snowball fight, and built some snowmen.

Thanks, CNN

I had about ten minutes to check the news this morning. Some very important news-related items learned this morning: 1 clip from The Daily Show, making fun of the dire straits we are in according to Obama’s last speech. (For those who don’t understand, that is basically the news showing a clip of a man […]

Almost As Good As World Peace

I think it was Tessa at Drive a Faster Car that first alerted me to The Atlanta Beer Guide. If you follow them on Twitter, they send out cool tweets, such as where the beer specials are that very day. Why did they not do this before I had kids? Anyway, today they delivered just […]
