Where did March go?

Whoever said March comes in like a lion, but goes out like a lamb was NOT referring to the Johnson household. March crept up on us like Tom stalking Jerry, and ended up like Tom chasing Jerry. It was busy.

It’s the remix/remake showdown!

It’s the very first remix/remake showdown. I have so many remakes and cover songs in my music library I decided it was time to put them head-to-head to see which one comes out the winner. This first installment has The Carpenter’s squaring off against Sonic Youth. Know what the song is?

Just Cruisin’

I think I’m going to have to go on at least one more cruise before I can fully form an opinion on whether I like them a lot or not. We had a great time on our first cruise, but the water was so rough I had a tough time getting out of the cabin.

When all else fails, go for the meme!

Don’t tell anyone, but I do like a good meme. It gives me an opportunity to talk mostly about myself, and I can pretend that someone out there cares. I try not to go for the basic meme, (I guess I’m a meme snob) but instead I like ’em a little more unusual. So today I bring you the Who, What, Why, Where, When and Would meme. Because there’s a little reporter inside us all.

A Flurry of Activity

Who can play mommy, Santa, wife, Web Goddess, and Domestic Diva all at once? I don’t know, but if you find her, send her to my house. The 2009 holiday season was a busy one. It was good, but busy! Read on…
