Once again: not a real post

If I’m not going to post a blog (and apparently I’m not) then I could at least put in a little effort to share some of the blogs I’ve read and liked lately.

 

  • Weird Al takes on Word Crimes… and makes me so happy in the process! Thanks for bringing this to my attention, 101 books. (This also makes me want to go watch “White and Nerdy” again, by the way.)

Great Idea To Keep Your Kids Busy All Summer

aka gringita:

This looks like such a fun way to keep kids engaged and active over the summer… (Of course I was the kid that played “School” in the summer — so your mileage may vary.) [Reblogged from Life Inspired]

As soon as school was out, Journey said to me, “I wonder if I’m going to get picked to do that fun challenge again this summer.”   Even though she’s in summer camp, she still has quite a bit of free time when she gets home.  So the Super Fun Summer Challenge is back to help beat summer boredom!  Last year during the challenge, Journey built a lego city as an architect, wrote a business plan as an entrepreneur, saved the planet as an eco-superhero, and did our family tree as a genealogist.  And this year’s challenge will be even better!  Here’s how you can get your kids from in front of the television and in on some serious summer fun:

Last weekend I saw my oldest friend.

Which calls for me to clarify that I am referring to how long I’ve known her not how old she is.

Throwback… Tuesday? (kindred spirits)

Yeah, yeah. The meme is “Throwback Thursday.” And it’s only Tuesday. But sticking to the meme proper would be insufficiently flotsamy for my taste.

Plus, who can wait that long?

I posted this back in 2010, originally. So much has happened since then. So much has changed, and so much is the same. And something wonderfully exciting is brewing on my horizon, and this post helps put some context around an exciting new development for those who haven’t been here long enough to know why…

A few more pics?

About 2 1/2 minutes’ worth of pictures from my most recent trip.

Feeling low. Or high.

Not my Wii Fit meter. The main clues being that I haven’t burned anything like that many calories yet today. And my Mii looks more like, well, Me.

No, wait, low again. What?

OK, so as little as I’ve been blogging lately, y’all (yeah, I said “y’all”, what of it?) have had to hear about my Wii Fit altogether too much. Read more of this post
