Don’t worry, be hoppy

Nope, not a typo – I meant hoppy. I promise it will make sense when I’m done. What doesn’t make sense (or does it? *grin*) is that I’ve noticed the blog entries I’ve written as my alter ego, Catherine Trevor…

Of Demons and Glow-ons

Yesterday, our son (seventeen) made me a proud g33k mommy. He was telling me about a new guild he set up with some friends on WoW. He mentioned that they made a tabard, and asked me to guess which symbol…

A Tale of Two Hard Drives

Back when I wrote a blog for a local paper, I started off as a fictionalized person, with the approval of TBTP (The Powers That Be). I had this idea in my head that I could write a kind of…

Quirk or symptom

Back in 2005, I had two tons of dental work done. Because of the pain and swelling in my mouth, I started chewing ice cubes. Even long after things healed up, I continued with my “ice habit.” During the times…

Hubby and I have been together since 1987. In that entire time, I can’t recall ever buying a brand spanking new couch. We’ve always been in the right place at the right time to inherit free, or find low cost…

Ghost of depression past

Hubby recently hooked up my old external hard drive to my computer, and I’ve been working on getting important files copied over, and other files deleted. I spent some time this afternoon horrifying our youngest (fourteen) by showing her the…

Family time

Because we’re a homeschooling family, we get to hang out together and have family time on a regular basis. Even so, special family nights have evolved over the course of the years, out of a sense of want instead of…

I Love You, Period.

In honor of the best and easiest period I’ve had in forever (Goodbye, iron deficiency! Hello, perimenopause!), I’m reposting another blog entry from yesteryear. I eventually plan to get all my old entries up (somewhere in the neighborhood of fifty…

The Geek Side

Come to the Geek Side – we have Pi. *giggle* *giggle* *snort* Since it’s difficult to write whilst snickering away, I’m posting an old entry from a blog I did for a local newspaper , back in… … wait for…
