Why I’m Not a SportsFan

July 29, 2010

So some of you may have noticed that the World Cup happened this summer. It was a few frantic weeks of close games and rooting for the underdogs. I was sort of happy to discover that my home-team (Go USA!) was actually an underdog in this particular event. It was kind of fun being able […]

I’d Make a Terrible Narcissist

July 29, 2010

Here’s the thing about my blog. I really only started it because I always have these wacky things running through my head and I thought perhaps a smattering of friends and family, my future self, and maybe 3-12 random strangers out there might enjoy reading them. Then yesterday happened, and I got Fresh Pressed. All of a […]

Recently I began thinking about what it might be like to own a dog. I haven’t been thinking about it too seriously, given that I already have two cats, a live-in boyfriend and a 580 sq. ft house. But in my fantasy I imagine a really big dog. Like something massive. A mastiff? It even […]

Of course, I didn’t really understand what an experiment was, save that it […]

Sorry Eyeballs!

I’ve worn glasses since I was probably, oh I don’t know, 10? I probably needed them before that, but no one seemed to notice (including myself) until about 4th grade. It was at that point that I think maybe my teacher or someone saw that I spent a lot of time squinting at the blackboard. […]

Going Veg = Defeating Nazi Kitten Killers

July 22, 2010

I recently went vegetarian. Like most good Americans, it took a movie to help me see the error of my ways. The movie was Food INC and it scared the crap out of me. But what disturbed me most was the footage of the meat processing plants where they literally had these pigs on a […]
