An uninformed rant on ADHD

17 February 2005 Uncategorized

I won’t pretend to know a lot about the world of ADD, hyperactivity and the like. However, I do have a couple of boys, and said boys are a handful at times. Right now especially, my not quite three-year-old is a bit of a challenge, in much the same way that Paris Hilton is a […]

Misunderstood word of the day: Meme

16 February 2005 Uncategorized

I was reading something online a while ago, I’m not even sure what, and I came across the term “meme” in reference to one of those questionnaire thingees that we love to send each other (for example, the time travel bit I lifted from The Mother of All Blogs.) I thought, “What a cute little […]

We need more words for tired

16 February 2005 Uncategorized

You know that old myth about how the Inuit have more than 50 words for snow? (My apologies, BTW, for the less than politically correct link, but Uncle Cecil has long held a soft spot in my heart.) Well, I think it’s about time we came up with some new words to express the idea […]

I came out this weekend

14 February 2005 Uncategorized

True confessions time… I came out this weekend! Well, not that kind of coming out (not that there is anything wrong with that!) but I outed myself as a blogger to a few close friends and family members. I tell ya, what a relief to have my little closet obsession out in the open. Not […]

From the drawer — So I’m late, right?

12 February 2005 Uncategorized

I remember reading once something about Stephen King. He said that he had a bunch of novels that had never been given to his publisher, and when times were lean (or, as I think the situation happened to be, he was so strung out on his addiction of choice that he couldn’t produce) he would […]

A picture of us

12 February 2005 Uncategorized

It took me an entire Saturday afternoon, a few false starts and more patience with technology than I thought I had, but I finally managed to install and run Hello photo-sharing software. Wanna see us? Here we are! It’s a pretty old picture by now (taken last June) but still one of my faves. One […]

What a whopper!

11 February 2005 Uncategorized

That’s what my grandfather said about me when he saw me for the first time – I was 8 lbs 14 oz or something to that effect. I can only imagine what he might have said when he saw my plump 10 lbs Simon for the first time. I’m pleased to say that today at […]

If you love Monty Python…

10 February 2005 Uncategorized

Am I the last Monty Python fan to find out about this? A friend just sent me the Newsweek review for Monty Python’s Spamalot, “A new musical lovingly ripped off from the motion picture Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” My only question? When on earth will I find the time and the resources to […]

Someone actually read my blog!

10 February 2005 Uncategorized

I’m feeling quite validated these days. Someone actually read my blog. Someone actually commented on my blog. S omeone looked at this self-indulgent little reflection on life, the universe and everything and took the time to say something about it. And it was a really nice something, too! What, you say? You looked at all […]
