300 reasons to blog

14 December 2005 Uncategorized

Okay, not really 300 reasons. But I noticed a lot of my favourite bloggers (Suzanne, Ann, Jen and Phantom, to name a few) have been taking on the question “why do I blog” lately, and I wanted to get in on some of that action. And then I noticed when I was cranking up Blogger […]

Two people, one bed

13 December 2005 Uncategorized

I don’t mind sharing things. We have one car, and one cell phone, neither one of which I mind terribly not having exclusively to myself. We have one TV, and one computer. I share a lot of food – if it’s not the preschoolers hungrily eyeballing my sandwich, it’s Katie the dog. In general, I’m […]

Politics and child care

12 December 2005 Uncategorized

I’m so very reluctant to get political on blog for a number of reasons. First, because I’m mostly bored to tears by the endless punditicisms during an election. Second, because I always fear that my brain is not big enough to contribute a reasoned, well-considered argument on the subject simply because I scan and take […]

Setting the reindeer record straight

8 December 2005 Uncategorized

It’s time to use this little soap-box of mine to do some real good for a change. There’s something that you need to know. Take note, and spread the message: the names of Santa’s reindeer are as follows: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, DONDER and Blitzen. That’s right, DONDER. Not Donner. Donder. As you […]

Christmas gift ideas?

7 December 2005 Uncategorized

Lest I trip over that fine line between good clean fun and celebrity Internet stalking (too late?) maybe we should talk about something else for a while. I’ve got about half my Christmas shopping done. The good half. The “oh, what a great idea, it’s the absolute perfect gift for so-and-so, I can hardly wait […]

The plan to take down Rick Mercer – Phase Two

6 December 2005 Uncategorized

Time to examine the cold, hard facts of whom is more deserving of your Canadian Blog Award votes: the comedian, published author, TV personality, philanthropist and national cultural icon – or, well, me. I think a head-to-head comparison will prove illustrious. Rick Mercer: biting sarcasm.Me: biting preschoolers. Rick Mercer: mocks Americans.Me: loves Americans. USA! USA!! […]
