I'm working on training for a race in a couple months. After what happened yesterday in Boston, I've thought about how I can help, or just something for me to do in honor of all the runners, spectators, race officials, and first responders. So today, I used my training app Charity Miles to support Achilles…
So I guess Shrimpgate really happened in my town. Short story even shorter, city councilman La Due attempted to take home a GARBAGE BAG of shrimp
I hear a tongue shriller than all the music
Just a petition that I started on change.org. I grew up in Girl Scouts (troop #108, whoop whoop). My brother was in Boy Scouts. I mentored in my sister's troop. So I understand how important these types of groups are to kids, especially ones where the connection to fathers are so vital. But I cannot support a group…
We can add Wreck it Ralph to the List
As a proud member of the procrastination Nation...I may or may not finish this. If I do, I may not even submit it. But I've got too much free time right now to be spending it on Duck Dynasty and pinterest. I'm going to write something dammit. So my first few blogs are going to be roughed in. Predrafts and first…
Between the end of ODeck and tonight's Once Upon a Time, I feel emotionally wrung out. And that's not me being over dramatic.
So yesterday, I asked for suggestions for my cross stitch patterns. I've got patterns for the next several years now. I thought you'd all get a kick out of this one. I've got a few projects I need to finish before I get started, but this might be something that needs to happen. I'm thinking Serenity on a black…
That pretty much sums it up. I hate these soft openings. It makes me wish for Hackerpocalypse, that weird io9.tumblr, the introduction of Kinja. At least with those, no one knew what was going on.
I do embroidery. It's pretty much the only craft medium I feel completely confident in. so I find "MyPhotoStitch.com" this morning and I'm hooked. I've made patterns of Nordic anatomic heart prints, my sister's dog, my sister's dog & my kid cuddling, Christine by Andrew Wyeth (my favorite painting) and Will Ferrell.…
I'm having a brain fart. What was the name and author of this book: nested stories, the author designed his own typography, the cover was black (or black was featured somewhere). I read the first few chapters, and it was a stolen manuscript from a blind man about a house larger inside than outside?
I hope this is only a rumor. Otherwise, that's putting the cart before the horse. Once upon a time spinoff featuring the Hatter.…
End of the World is the best SyFy movie I've seen...I think ever. This is awesome. Star Wars, Dune, Hitchhiker, War of the Worlds, Sunshine, and Core references? Be still my heart.
I know this has come up before, but it really pisses me off when people say that such and such director or actor or whatever is "raping" their childhood. As a rape survivor, that's bullshit.
Reaching the tail end of a flame war. I think I'm breaking the other side down. Victory shall be mine.
Tonight's Once Upon a Time totally made up for last week's disappointment. I wholeheartedly approve of more episodes with Michael Raymond-James.
Wow, TBBT surprised me last night! I counted 3 girls at the comic book store, which I think is the most that's ever been there.
Terri Dance Party.
I finally changed my user name on Kinja. It's an issue that I've addressed before. I'd say half lack of imagination, half a wish to maintain transparency. I've had moments of assholiness here. Posted and responded in peevish, cranky misanthropy. But I do the same thing in my day to day life. So what is my user name?
I missed this during last nights game, but I have to admit, I got a creepy feeling when I went to http://www.underthedome.com/
