Long overdue, but better late than clever, eh? There’s this thing called the Sunshine Blogger Award. And recently, Melissa over at Single Mom Unschooling thought we were fit for such a thing. And so did Kate of Plethoric Thoughts fame. (Joke’s on them). And then Lauren dropped a couple award bombs on me of the… Read More Awards Post: Well, Aren’t We Just a Snuggly Ball of Sunshine?

This is my 30th post in my participation of this year’s National Blog Posting Month, or NaBloPoMo, as it’s adorably and lovingly called. So. What have we learned? Have we learned the true meaning of Christmas? [Wait, that’s still a month away. ] What about the meaning of life? [Oh, 42, already got that covered] I’m sure… Read More NaBloPoMo 2015: 30 Days & 30 Posts Later… What Now?
Let’s see what’s behind door #1: Aw, that’s nice. But at a 54% match and 43% “enemy” rating, I don’t think so, sir. Lucky for you, however, I’m feeling rather generous today. As you can see, he caught me in a pissy mood [badum tss]. Don’t ask questions you don’t want to the answers to, young padawan.… Read More Hall of OKStupid #2: Well, That Takes the Piss Out of A Potential Mate
…Until recently. My sister and I watched this video about a dozen times back in ye olde day. After hearing a Fergie song on the radio the other day (“Big Girls Don’t Cry,” I believe), I was transported back to 8th grade, around the time when Fergie launched into a solo career from The Black… Read More Saturday Songbird: Fergalicious (Almost Forgot This Was A Thing)
“Now, you’re not offended when I tell you to your face that you’re ridiculous? And if so, aren’t you material? You know, in my opinion it’s sometimes even good to be ridiculous, if not better: we can the sooner forgive each other, the sooner humble ourselves; we can’t understand everything at once, we cant start… Read More Quotable Quickie: On Black Friday (and Ridiculousness in General)
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Cheers, Moose & Michelle
Drumroll please. The Moose has his leg back! Yesterday, we made our last – well, fingers crossed that it’s our last – visit to the orthopedic doctor. We were jittery from the anticipation (and from over-caffeination). But the appointment lasted less than 30 minutes. Mr. Cute Assistant swooped us into one of the patient rooms,… Read More Giving Thanks: Getting a Leg Up on Life
“I am awfully greedy; I want everything from life. I want to be a woman and to be a man, to have many friends and to have loneliness, to work much and write good books, to travel and enjoy myself, to be selfish and to be unselfish… You see, it is difficult to get all which I want. And then when I do not succeed I get mad with anger.”
– Simone de Beauvoir (1908-1986)… Read More Quotable Quickie: I Am Awfully Greedy…
If you didn’t get that hilarious title, acculturate yourself here and here. [And sorry (not sorry) to burst the bubble of any “Friends” fans, but lobsters don’t actually mate for life. It’s a lot less romantic than that, unless you’re a fan of golden showers.]… Read More You’re My Liebster (Aside: Lobster’s DON’T Mate for Life)
Well, it’s been a little over 3 1/2 months since the inception of this blog. We’re a little behind our goal of accruing 100 followers a month, but that’s all right. We don’t need validation from empty stats and people we’ll never meet. Those are for the little people…
Eh, just kidding. You know we love it. Thanks for following!… Read More Update: What About the Hand Lotion? (Reaching 300 Followers)
For today’s Saturday Songbird, we call on the monocloud to hang its dreary weight over the whole of the Pacific Northwest and pour its misery down upon us. Praise be the nimbostratus for pushing out the heat and showering us with the signs of cooler days!

The ballet company I work for is moving to a new location. The current building they’re housed in is an old bank that will be demolished within the next year to make way for the next wave of gentrification of this quadrant of Portland. Because of this, my supervisors encourage me to draw on the… Read More Promoting the Arts Through, Well, Art(?)
