Mondays Redefined By Buffy The Vampire Slayer. 16

Mondays Redefined By Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

Mondays are not as painful to me when I’m on maternity leave as they were when I was working full time. I wake up as early (or earlier – thank you AndyZ for the 4:45 wakeup call. It was much appreciated.) but I get more time to lounge about and get moving. So, the weekend activities don’t haunt me as much. However…they still suck donkey balls. And I wanted to make sure that I went on record saying that. I don’t know if it was the 3+ hours sleep Friday night or what, but this weekend wore me OUT. Of...

Storytime — as told by NikkiZ 11

Storytime — as told by NikkiZ

This is the story my daughter just told me over breakfast: Once upon a time, there was a little boy. His name was Brother. He was sitting in a trip and he would SLAP his hand on the branches. And sometimes shoot bad guys. And hangout with the birds. Can I ride in the rocket car at Publix? I think the last sentence was supposed to be “The End” but she got distracted. I just thought I’d share the inner workings of my toddlers brain. It seems like a fun place to be.

Warning to my husband 16

Warning to my husband

I started a project yesterday that I have been referring to as The Project That Made Call A Friend For Advice About Finding A Therapist. I decided to re-do the photo hall completely. As in – take ALL of the photos and frames down and put a completely new set (of photos AND frames) up in it’s place. Before there were just two walls of random wood collage frames. No matching or anything. Perfectly acceptable and WHY DID I NEED TO CHANGE IT? Well – you see – we’ve spent a lot of money on portraits over the last year....

This Face Causes Me Much Pain

Do you know what this face is? This is NikkiZ’s I’m-Doing-Something-I-Shouldn’t-Be Face. For example, if she smacked LilZ in the face and then I say, “Did you just hit LilZ?” She’ll make this face and say, “Yeah.” Or she’ll make it as she’s saying something she know she shouldn’t be. I asked her to give me a kiss and she made this face and said, “I don’t wanna give you a kiss.” Or the best was when she made this face as she muttered the word “Dammit” under her breath. It’s a dead giveaway if we’re unsure if she knows...

And another thing… 21

And another thing…

My newfound love for Joss Whedon (Why did I resist Buffy and Angel for so long?) has led me to this gem. A trailer for his new online project that stars Neil Patrick Harris. Another love of mine. If this doesn’t look hysterical, I don’t know what does. Teaser from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog on Vimeo. Joss Whedon describes this project: “It’s the story of a low-rent super-villain, the hero who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl from the laundromat he’s too shy to talk to.” Of course. AWESOME.
