We must voyage into space, the final frontier, to continue our Friday Film Flashback. For me Trek is a social occasion. I watch Star Wars alone most often but Trek? Now Trek gets movie nights and trips to see the exhibition at the Mall of America. See those two gingers in costume...err uniform...yeah we didn't … Continue reading Star Trek, a Social Experiment
Man oh man every day. I usually wake up with one fragment of a song bouncing through my head. This morning, Bare (or is it Bear??) Necessities from the Jungle Book. My coworker was humming it yesterday. I just KNOW this song is going to be in my head all day. And yes I will … Continue reading Do you ever get a song stuck in your head?
So this week as I was commuting my normal 30 minutes to work, I realized many of the things that go through my head in the car are the same day in day out. Maybe it is the routine of driving, the familiar route that prompts the same thoughts over and over, or maybe it is … Continue reading Musings of a Commuter
In an effort to eat a little bit cleaner, but still keep all the flavor, I have been experimenting with some of my favorite recipes over the past few months. The recipe that cleaned up the best, was surprisingly chicken piccata! Normally, this recipe would have wine and a fair amount of butter but my … Continue reading Cleaned Up Chicken Piccata

I wear my nerd loud and proud, like the time I wore a t-shirt (a present from my brother mind you) to the gun range that read "Come to the darkside, we have cookies. ~V". Until I realized the guy was trying to sneakily … Continue reading Star Wars – My First Nerdy Love
Like many of my fellow peeps, I adore a good glass of wine. I mean there is something for everyone! And it goes with everything, especially girls night! But have you ever wondered how wine suddenly became so popular? There are vineyards all over, wine country is now the new holy grail of vacations, you … Continue reading Wine, it goes with everything!
To say work has been busy lately is like saying water is kinda wet, hello understatement. But busy is good, I would rather be too busy than sitting around twiddling my thumbs. Enforced idleness might be the worst punishment you can give me. That being said, it does get to you when you don't have … Continue reading Sanity Through Music
I have a minor (that's a lie, major) problem with rereading certain books. I have some practically memorized yet I keep going back time and time again. The Picture of Dorian Gray is one such book. I know Oscar Wilde was really a playwright, but I have never actually read his plays. I have seen … Continue reading The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
We all have those movies we can watch over and over and over through the years. After a friend suggested this topic, I was racking my brain to think of a good movie and realized most of my favorites are really a series of movies. Star Wars, Star Trek, Bourne, Lord of the Rings, they … Continue reading S.W.A.T. The Movie Retrospective
So I am feeling a wee bit lazy today and decided to make a list of my favorite things about January. So much easier than having to think of transitions and unique descriptive words! So here it goes, and this is in no particular order (so as not to anger my siblings): Christopher (my brother) … Continue reading Best of January – A List
