Origami and Amazing Shushing Action 6

I have an origami zoo on my desk. One of my coworkers likes origami, and she has a tear-off calendar with an origami-a-day. I currently have a penguin (my corner is the coldest in the building, so the penguin keeps me company), a carp (the symbol of strength – she made it when I made […]

We’re Number Eight! 0

Stories like this are why I love this time of year. ETA: If you’re not registered and don’t want to register, the story is about Mount St. Mary’s, whose basketball team gets to go to the NEC tournament because of a game they won last night, placing them eighth in their conference. The students stormed […]

Love Changes Everything 8

I used to be staunchly against diet soft drinks. Who wants to put such disgusting chemicals in their bodies? Chemicals that kill lab rats!! I had principles, and I stood by them. Well, last year I realized that my metabolism is no longer what it was. I can no longer eat whatever I want and […]

The Farewells Begin 4

Saturday I had to tell our mailman that we’ll be moving in two weeks. It was really sad. No, it really was. I love our mailman. His name is Mario. He has two gold teeth, right in the front. He always seems happy to see us, and he stops to say hello when he can. […]

Cute is Apparently the Word of the Day 0

Well, I want to talk about the Oscars. Because I love celebrity stuff like that. Since there weren’t any surprises, there’s not really much to say. But I do have a couple of thoughts. Of course my favorite thing is that Peter Jackson and crew finally got the recognition they deserved. I honestly didn’t think […]
