I'm super lucky to have some fabulous friends. This weekend I drove to Cincinnati to meet Nora for a mini weekend getaway. We got a room close to the University and vegged out and had girly time. We ate a lot of junk and laughed a ton. Sometimes a girl's just gotta get away. And... Continue Reading →
What are those nuts called that are shaped like kidneys? I like those. And peanuts. Peanuts are my favorite. Almonds I will tolerate but they don't really do it for me. I just ate this and it was good. I had a turkey sandwich, baked Lays and an apple for lunch. Exciting noms no? Stuff... Continue Reading →
Thanks to a friend for sending me a CD of The Laurie Berkner Band. Mom and daughter both love it! Kiddo is currently in love with this song in particular. I'll look at her, wiggle my fingers and say "I'm gonna get you, you better run" and she giggles, takes off running through the house laughing her head... Continue Reading →
This post is brought to you by a Bible verse from Matthew, Garrison Keillor and my dad. Matthew 5:45 ...for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust... A friend asked me to blog about a passage from Matthew that popped...

Sometimes I think the Universe is playing a sick joke on me. Either that, or there's been an epic mistake. That I wasn't meant to be this person, with this life. That somehow, there's been a terrible mix-up and I'm someone else who is trapped in this body, this place in time, at this spot on the... Continue Reading →
So once again I find myself behind. I had the best of intentions of posting about my super good weekend and yet, do you see a post like that? No. And it's not gonna happen now either because the pics that go along with the post are elsewhere. So, again I say, "I'll do that... Continue Reading →
Rumor on the streets is that my mother (Maw Finn, you might know her, she comments here sometimes) performed some kick-butt karaoke this morning at a middle school talent show. Its official. I live in BizarroWorld. And that's cool with me. Love you mom. You crazy lady. Go here to read about the show. Thanks... Continue Reading →
Below is an exerpt from an email my mom sent me yesterday (her birthday). She is a teacher. I thought this was funny so I'm sharing. 'Cause that's what I do. I was able to use my birthday as an excuse all day to torture the 7th and 8th graders with Simon and Garfunkel music... Continue Reading →
I've had "Edge of Desire" from JM's new album, Battle Studies, on repeat in my car for the past week. Sometimes I get hooked on a song and won't let it go. This one in particular makes me all melancholy and wistful weird. It's tortured, longing, desperate. It speaks to me for various personal reasons I won't go into. It reminds... Continue Reading →
I'm compiling a list of things that "They" don't tell you about before you have kids of your own. The latest addition is that all members of the household will never be healthy at the same time ever again. We are constantly sick up in here. Sam is still trying to get over her latest... Continue Reading →
Hey ya peeps. So i'm back in tn. NYC was all kinds of fantabulousness, as you've probably gathered by now. I'll post some pics here later maybe but we'll see. Most of you saw them on Twitter but since I can't convince all of my friends and family to get on the Twitter bandwagon I'll probably... Continue Reading →
today i feel random, tired, bummed, a bit depressed, a bit hopeless, wistful and cranky...all that with a little snarky thrown in. don't you wanna hang out with me? i went to the downtown library today on a whim. was going to get a library card as it's been a couple of years since i've had...

Seems like it's been forever since I posted but its really only been a few days I guess. Things are, eh. The work front is causing me major stress, depression and just general ickiness. But I can't really write about all that here so suffice it to say, it sucks. Otherwise, things are great. Sam is... Continue Reading →
I really struggle with my post titles. Can you tell? Heh. I woke up in a rather irritated mood this morning but am quickly turning my 'tude around because various good things have already happened and it's not even 10am yet. Wanna hear 'em? 1. Sam was in a semi-decent mood this morning even though... Continue Reading →
Eh, I have no idea what "the thing" is. I just randomly typed that in the title box. I think I might possibly suffocate in this office but I'm not opening my door to get air for fear of having to actually interact with people on my lunch hour. 'Cause that would just be unnecessary and annoying. And... Continue Reading →
Ohmygoodness, Boyz II Men is on "Don't Forget the Lyrics"!! (Which is the only reason I'm watching this show I assure you.) I was IN LOVE with them back in da day. Ok, now I am awash in adolescent memories....forgive me while I dust off my yearbook and go tease my bangs.
I just figured out that Rihanna is saying "Please don't stop the music" instead of "Measles got the music". Doh.
Sometimes I just feel like typing. Maybe saying nothing but typing away. I have a severe love of sentence fragments at all times but especially when I just freewrite. I think I think in fragments. But does anyone think in complete sentences? And I also love to begin sentences with the words "and" and "but". ... Continue Reading →
So I'm not a total dolt when it comes to using the video option on my digital camera. I didn't think I'd done this right at the time but with a little experimenting on the computer, I got two of them to work ok. If I'd known I was doing it right, I would have taken more but this...

I have made an annoying discovery today. If you keep the radio tuned to the same station all day (107.5, I'm lookin' at you) and hardly leave your desk, a strange thing happens. You will hear Rihanna singing about her Umbrella, ella, ella 25.8 times during the day. Sean Kingston will drive you batty with his... Continue Reading →
I'm due to write up a concert recap for my five lovely readers. So here we go. Bottom line, it was fabulous! A dinner of burgers and fries at Rotiers was first on the agenda and it was yummilcious! Made our way to the Sommet in plenty of time to find our seats and check out... Continue Reading →
Go to my flickr link on the sidebar to see pictures from last night's concert. It was a great night! Will post more later.
In my quest to become a full fledged John Mayer groupie, I'm going to his concert next month at the Sommet/Crochet/Jose/Blase whatever it's called Center! Woot! A friend and I are taking a newly-turned-driver-of-legal-age to the concert for her 16th birthday. Are we sweet or what? I went to see Mayer at the now defunct Starwood... Continue Reading →
Mr. Mayer is gonna wail on that phenomenal guitar of his tomorrow night in Murray, KY and I'm gonna miss it! Dang it, I am seriously kicking myself for not getting tickets because a petty little thing like work got in the way. I saw him and Maroon5 a couple of years ago at the beloved (but soon...
