Lessons In YouTube

I’ll be honest. Until several months ago I was simply a casual YouTube user. I watched whatever videos went viral but beyond that? Eh. Whatevs. Then E turned me onto Daily Grace. And that’s when I discovered that there are people who create fresh content regularly on their own YouTube channels. WHO KNEW? It’s just like blogging, but with videos, which is why the cool kids call it…VLOGGING. Now, I’m not buying tickets to VidCon or anything yet, but I am now subscribing to enough YouTube channels that I have something fun to watch pretty regularly. So, you know, I...

The Parable Of The New Shoes

I’ll be honest, I can be quite a cynical when it comes to some things related to running and running “injuries.” See? I can’t even leave the quotes off the word “injuries” because I’m such a cynic. Part if traces back to my cynicism about medicine in general, but most of it I can blame on my Dad. He ran 3-5 times a week 3+ miles a time for his ENTIRE LIFE. Did he ever do races or anything? Nope. He just ran because he knew he should. He knew that getting out there for that bit several times a...

Zach Woodlee: Glee’s Unsung Hero

I’m not a dancer. WHAT? I know, you’re totally surprised. But I love to watch dancing. I absorb every routine on So You Think You Can Dance every summer like it’s crack. I have my favorite choreographers (Wade Robson and Travis Wall) and my favorite dancers (Mark Kanemura and Mark Kanemura). So, of course I notice the dancing on Glee and in my personal, untrained opinion? Zach Woodlee, the show’s lead choreographer, is Glee’s greatest asset. Mainly because most of these kids are not trained dancers. With the exception of Grant Gustin, Heather Morris, and Harry Shum. Yet he puts...

Sharing Time!

When you juggle as many balls as I do, you periodically drop one or two. It doesn’t mean you need to quit juggling, it just means you got a little overwhelmed and one hit the ground. What matters is the importance of that ball. Did you forget milk at the grocery store – something easily rectified by another trip down the road? Or did you forget your 10th anniversary…something you’ll never ever live down for the REST OF YOUR LIFE? It seems this week that the balls I’ve dropped have fallen more towards the more severe end of that spectrum....

Insert Exasperated Sigh Here.

Wes is so adorable. Don’t let those big blue eyes fool you. He’s pure evil with big floppy blonde curls. ************************* I mentioned recently that Wes’s behavior been SO MUCH BETTER as he gets closer to the age of 4. I even took him to his first rehearsal for “Alice in Wonderland” the other day (He and Nikki are playing heart children in E’s play) and I was TERRIFIED that he’d be awful. But he wasn’t! He obeyed first time and amped up the “cute” factor so much that the director of the play had to coach the cast and...
