Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? I do. For me it is less about the “New Year” and more about getting goals down on paper (or on your blog, as the case may be). It is easy to remember New Year’s Day as a time to do this, but I make sure that I check […]

This weekend I went to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. I know, no one was more surprised than I. I actually made it to see a long-awaited movie on opening weekend.

The Doctor’s influence is everywhere. Have you discovered this? I’m running into fans all over the place! Last week my dishwasher sprung a leak. I know, really fun stuff. The guys that came in to dry out the flooding were pretty cool. One of them commented that I had the best coffee mug ever. I […]

So, I completely convinced myself that I’d read a book that I haven’t. Yeah, it happened. How did I discover this? Well, I got the movie on Netflix. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy of all things! I was certain that I’d already read this novel by Douglas Adams, but as the movie was rolling […]
