My Favorite Reads of 2007

It’s that time of year again, kids - time to list my favorite books I’ve read in the past year. I started posting my faves list in 2005 and my guidelines for what makes a book a favorite with me are still the same, so if you’re interested, check out that post first. And if […]


Does anyone remember back in autumn, when I tried to see the movie Stardust and ended up getting a raincheck from the cinema instead? Well I finally got to watch it last night. Yay!!
Ok, admittedly it was on DVD on a medium-sized TV screen instead of on a huge screen in a darkened theater, and […]

And the “OMG, People are such pigs!” award goes to….

If you want to know what I mean, check out this video for yourself. And if you or someone you love ever travels - ever - be sure to watch it and see if it doesn’t make you go “eeeeuuuuwwwwww” and want to see some changes. Big ones!

Holiday Wishes

Flying Dreams, Again

Merry Christmas to those of you on the side of the world where it’s already the big day! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, spent with people you love. And for those of you who share this side of the globe with me, Merry Christmas Eve!
I just this morning remembered what I was going […]
