I need a place to hide today. I didn’t have something quite as sophisticated as an abditory in mind though. If you want to find me, I’ll be in my pillow fort coloring. ‘Til next time, JessicaRead More A Hiding Place
This summer I’ve listened to a lot of Zac Brown Band (fine, I listen to them all year round, but especially summer). Jekyll + Hyde is an awesome album, what can I say? A particular line from the song “Homegrown” sticks with me, and has since […]

I like this word, hoppipolla. It sounds fun popping from the lips. Try it? See! Awesome! This is something I am usually guilty of. Unless there’s somewhere I have to be where staying clean and dry is required, I’ll jump in the puddle. I don’t require children to be present to encourage me either. My […]Read More Guilty As Charged
I lovingly refer to my mother as the Comma Queen. She’s my proofreader extraordinaire, when I can contract use of her services. She is in very high demand, you know.

“Play it f@#%in’ loud!” ― Bob Dylan I’m in a mood today…I want lots of punk rock played loud enough that if it were any other day, you’d be worried about the speakers. ScotsFest begins in Tulsa tonight, and a friend flies in from out-of-state today, and tomorrow we’ll all be there for the music, food, […]Read More The Louder the Better!

For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral […]Read More I read a list of banned books today and thought of this.
“Music is … A higher revelation than all Wisdom & Philosophy” ― Ludwig van Beethoven I have a love/hate with Beethoven. His music is transcendent. However, as a pianist (very amateur pianist) no matter how much I practice, I feel like the man is trying to tie my fingers in knots and my hands ache every […]Read More A Higher Revelation
Thank you! Today, I Love Geekology 101 turns one. Really? I still feel like such a newbie blogger. This first year has been pretty awesome, and I owe a big part of that to all of you. I Love Geekology 101 began as a way to explore all this great stuff. All of these things […]Read More Thank You’s, Anniversaries, and Crooked Trees
