Catalogs. Stacks and stacks of Catalogs.

I’m not normally that upset about the quantity of catalogs I receive in the mail.  I understand that even though I never look inside half of the catalogs and rarely order from the other half, it’s presumably worth it for companies to send me reminders to buy their stuff. What I don’t understand are the…

Adventures with Jumper Cables

I think life decided to imitate blog yesterday.  After my odd, yet somewhat informational post, the afternoon devolved into randomness, and I eventually lost all capability of putting words together into proper sentences.  That last part was kind of a shame.  Before that, the major events included the city deciding that my job description might…

Nothin’ Much

1.  I’m hanging my head in shame.  An ad for the new Zac Efron movie was on tv the other day, and I actually wanted to see it.  Will. Resist.  Also, this is why I sometimes go to movies alone. 2.  You know it’s time to vacuum the house when you have a sudden urge…
