in which donuts are consumed

I’m out of coffee, so Ellison and I took a stroll and picked up a latte and some donuts. I love donuts. It’s not even the sugar - I really wish I could get raised donuts without any glaze. Then I would buy them by the flat and eat them for every meal of every [...]

and how might you be?

You know, I was going to post something substantive and clever, but then I realized that I left the diapers at home. The office is now somewhat…odoriferous. Thusly, I leave you with these three things:
1. I posted a new video rant - scroll down if you’re on my site, or go see it on Viddler, [...]

bore da

So I’m teaching myself Welsh. Yes! I am a crazy person. I can’t tell you that in Welsh yet, of course. Currently I am limited to basic introductions (Good morning! I am Jessica!) and the declaration that I am going to a club. (I am not going to a club, actually, but I could tell [...]

revamp

Yeah, I re-did the site again. It’s pretty, no? What with all the pink and the scribbles. That’s what it’s like inside my head these days. Pink and scribbles. Wait, that sounded weirdly porny. Okay, scratch that - it’s just that pink is the color of the future (yeah, that’s it) and scribbles are…
Whatever. It’s [...]

neither s nor sw

Not So is at SXSWi. I? Am not. He promises to get swag for me, though. Swag makes everything okay, even seven straight days of solo parenting.
Which is not as bad as all that, actually - Not So has been gone since Thursday morning, and today was kind of okay, as far as days go. [...]

if by carnie you mean carnivorous

Had an unexpected attack of must eat flesh or I will die yesterday. After enjoying a spectacular medium-rare steak (Foreman Grill FTW!), I retired to the restroom, where - wouldn’t you know it? - I started my period. Iron cravings, anyone? I mention this primarily to illustrate that I appear to have gotten back in [...]

30 tiny moments: day 1

So I’m doing this thing, this “30 Tiny Moments” thing, which in theory will result in a post every day, assuming I am that organized. Which, I have been weirdly organized lately. Don’t tell anyone.
Jessica at Kerflop summarized the project thusly:
“I imagine casting my eyes over the usual chaos I’m constantly surrounded by and [...]

these words don’t write themselves

Taking a break from the novel, seeing as I’m premenstrual and liable to begin using the delete key in a decidedly unhelpful manner. A long time ago I figured out that my creativity is cyclical, and trying to force it along is always, always a huge mistake.
Besides, I’ve got work projects [...]

classic creme cookies

You know, I don’t like Oreos much, but these Back to Nature Classic Creme cookies? Dude, they are the bomb. Not So says they taste insufficiently Oreo-like, but I love them with the heat of a thousand suns.
I am eating some right now. In case you were wondering where that came from.
In other news, [...]

missing sync

So I got sick of my BlackBerry Pearl - which I still love unreasonably, by the way - not playing nicely with my Mac and downloaded the Missing Sync the other day. Oh my god, it is cool. My phone suddenly has this whole new level of functionality. I can upload! And download! Things are [...]
