Randomosity: Oral History Edition

I would put NewsRadio up there with some of the best sitcoms in history. But while I was watching it, I always felt like I was the only one. This is a fascinating oral history of the show that partially explains why it did so badly in the ratings (it was moved around 11 times, […]

Random Thoughts At 4am

Going to bed early to catch up on sleep only works if you don’t wake up at 3am. No matter what time I get up, my cat runs to me at a breakneck speed, meowing and begging for attention. I’m not a morning person, and I always ignore her for about half an hour. And […]

I love Sundays. If I play my cards right, I don’t have to set an alarm, don’t have to shower, don’t have to leave the house. Today, I played my cards right. *** Every moment of the internet’s existence has been leading to this. *** Classic works of literature as Upworthy headlines. It’s been difficult […]

I slept for ten hours straight last night. My husband had come home sick from work that morning, and by the evening I was feeling exhausted and run down. I was afraid I was coming down with whatever he’d had, so I put a very lazy dinner on the table (canned everything), said goodnight, and […]

This morning started out with a dentist appointment for Fiona due to really painful gums, that were of course better by the time the actual appointment rolled around, but it was too late to cancel. Then my husband headed home from work with what sounds like the flu. Hoping the rest of the day goes […]

I think I have a case of the Mondays this morning. Except it’s Tuesday. I just have to be different. *** Over the weekend I went to my friends Kris and Sarah’s annual Latkefest. There was, once again, a You Buy It We Fry It contest. Kris won her own contest with a stroke of […]

Me. Twelve years old (1984). I was spending the summer in Ireland with my grandmother, and apparently an Esprit store had thrown up on me. Not visible in the picture: jelly shoes. *** On his way out the door this morning Jake reminded me that I don’t have to get up early for the next […]

My cat is not ladylike: *** So it finally happened yesterday, after my husband got home from work. Omer: “Congrats on the haircut." Me: "Ah, you read my blog!" Omer: "Yup. Wouldn’t have noticed otherwise with a gun to my head." Sigh. *** I know what I’m getting my mom for Christmas. *** Pro tip: […]

Fiona’s staying home from school today. Says her throat hurts, and she’s very hoarse. When I told her the best thing to do would be to rest her voice, she said “Yeah, that’s not going to happen.” *** Getting KitKat microchipped today. Our last cat got out by mistake one time and was gone for […]

File this under “the things we do for our kids.” There is nothing good about getting up at 5:30am on a Saturday. Absolutely nothing. If you think of something, keep it to yourself. *** I’m getting a facial and a pedicure today. Some people buy expensive shoes, some people buy jewelry, some people smoke crack. […]
