Conversation, Coffee and Affection

Conversation, Coffee and Affection

¬† I named my Sunday morning ramble today. ūüôā This has been one¬†of the best mornings I’ve had in a while.¬† I awakened to a lazy, longer than usual lie-about with a¬†ceiling fan whirring above my head and birds singing outside the windows.¬†¬† The hubby, who owns a business that requires him to travel an […]

Weekend Music and Art

Weekend Music and Art

¬† Jumped on tonight to share some music. I’ve been listening to Iron and Wine.¬† Yes, folk music.¬† I do have a love for that genre, too.¬†Suprising from someone who is a fan of alternative, trip hop and¬† groups like Tool and Korn–but I have all kinds of favs from classical up to metal.¬†¬†Believe me, […]

Miss It Already

Miss It Already

I won’t be able to blog much for a few days.¬† I’m sending my laptop home with this great IT person who offered to try and figure out why it takes half an hour to boot and why I must reboot ever two hours.¬† And why my new security software boots me off my wireless […]

It Arrived!!!

It Arrived!!!

Two posts on this band in one week, but…. Over the Rhine’s new CD arrived! My sister, Jana, is so excited she’s coming over this evening for dinner.¬† We’re gonna play it loud on all the speakers, share a bottle of red wine and cook some yummy food!¬† I wasn’t going to tell her it […]

Star Wars Suffering

Star Wars Suffering

I’ve discovered I don’t enjoy a story if I know the ending.¬† I never watched the Titanic.¬† I didn’t plan to watch 300. If I know I’m going to get upset, I’ll avoid a movie completely.¬† ¬† Tonight, the hubby is watching Star Wars Episode III and yeah, it’s been out a long time, but […]

OKRWA’s Recap Today!

OKRWA’s Recap Today!

¬† These are the OKRWA Oklahoma Outlaws. ¬†Not all–but those there for the hat shot that day. This is the only time you’ll ever see me in a cowboy hat. <g>¬† If you are in the NW Expressway area today and want to hear¬†info gathered from the RWA National Conference in Dallas, Tx this year, […]

Blog Traffic and Kalli’s Beauti...

Blog Traffic and Kalli’s Beautiful Pipes

I’m so interested in how people end up on this blog.¬† For a little while, I was receiving over 400 hits a day.¬† Now, it’s back down around 200.¬† Either I’ve been terrifically¬†boring (a distinct possibility because of lack of good writing posts like in the past) or the Smart Bitches link to my site […]

Back To School Day!

Back To School Day!

¬† This was probably similar to the view from my daughter’s bus this morning.¬† Only there were trees and houses… and MY DAUGHTER¬†running toward it as it sped away… The first morning of the first day of school was hectic!¬† Yep, my highschooler missed the bus, though it wasn’t her fault at all.¬† The wrong […]

Am I Theming or What?

Am I Theming or What?

Heather and I got into this long discussion on music we were into as kids.¬† (She was inspired to post her 80s hair today.) I’m two years older and believe it or not, that makes quite a bit of difference in certain areas.¬† She’d never heard of Planet P.¬† Ack!¬† She was so deprived!!1¬† [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svl1t4b1RD4] […]

And Now For Something(s) Completely D...

And Now For Something(s) Completely Different

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8FeFjI3wHs] My daughter’s boyfriend introduced us to Kamelot.¬† This is called Ghost Opera.¬† Pretty interesting.¬† It’s a kind of epic rock opera for those who don’t feel like listening to the whole thing. ūüôā Though the style is somewhat different, I was yanked¬†back into Queensryche Fangirl Land. (Possibly the voice?¬† Maybe?) Okay… am I the […]
