follow-up to a rant

This is a follow-up to the last ranty post.  I’ve been wanting to write it for a few days, but I was without my macbook for over a week and I finally have it back (yay!). I was so aggravated by that HP article that I just fired off a post in haste and missed …

eurotrip part deux

We had a pleasant three-hour train ride from Amsterdam to Paris.  I tried my darnedest to get quaint French county-side pictures.  I was trying to get the cute little town with the church and its chapel.  Out of god-knows-how-many-picture-attempts, I maybe managed to get a few decent ones. Arriving at our Paris home, we were …

three days away

I am three days away from boarding a plane to Amsterdam! I can’t even tell you how excited I am and how I’ve been waiting for this vacation.  Over a drunken dinner, three ladies said they were going to plan a trip to Amsterdam and Paris, and by golly, within 2 weeks, they chose the …

mid-week randoms

It’s been a long time, I know.  Perhaps I should start calling these “mid-year randoms”.  I apologize to those who do visit and see nothing new posted. – Things are kaput with Scott, as of awhile now.  We wound up hanging out one more time after the last post.  I had a bit of a …

mid-week (post-sandy) randoms

– It’s only Wednesday and it already feels like the loooongggest week in the office.  I suppose that’s what happens when you’ve only had to work two days last week because of Hurricane Sandy.  OK, I admit that one of those days might have been spent home with a hangover after excessive drinking on Halloween…BUT, …

almost mid-week randoms

– While I was laid up this past weekend, I watched a marathon of The Walking Dead on AMC.  I finally get the hype.  I get the obsession.  I was obsessed.  I am obsessed.  And I am not a zombie-movie, zombie-anything fan.  Along with Breaking Bad, AMC just rocks.  However, no, I don’t watch Mad …

blog world tour

I’m always astounded that my little blog reaches to the far ends of the world.  Seeing all of these amazing countries pop up in my stats is humbling.  I’m a (relatively) simple girl who loves to travel, but I don’t get to do it enough (I’ve been to only 9 of the countries listed below).  …

(almost) mid-week randoms!

I have finally entered the 21st century and bought a new all-in-one printer.  Took me long enough.  So, now I have the capabilities to scan pictures.  Thus will begin the long process of digitally cataloging thousands of pics so I have them all on a hard drive (because in reality, if there were a fire, …
