I've started slowly going through my stuff in the basement. You know how it is - you pack to move, move, and then just never get to the last few boxes. No multiply this by ten moves now, and there are QUITE a few boxes that made it into my basement and no further. I … Continue reading What Have I Got in My Boxes?
As I've mentioned before, I've been playing a lot of Guild Wars 2 with my husband and friends. It's a Massively Multi-Player Online Role Playing Game, and Guild Wars is one that's buy once and then free to play. You can buy game items with real money, but you don't need them to play. Generally … Continue reading What Do You Mean You Didn’t Get Credit?
I am delighted. I just saw the new trailer for Guild Wars 2, and there's going to be a third expansion! It's not due to come out until 2021, but I'm excited, and I'm hoping they'll explore the asian continent from the first game. You can find the trailer here. The logo: And there's a … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: A New Expansion?
I decided I wanted to give my father-in-law soap for his birthday. Is this a spoiler? He doesn't read my blog, so it's probably okay. Anywho, time to drag out the supplies! I had some new colors and scents arrive earlier this week that I had been waiting for, so it was time to play … Continue reading Mint and Sage Soap!
I attended the University of Wisconsin - Madison, which was a wonderful and desperate experience. I was so sick during this time period that it was a struggle. But, one semester, I don't remember what year, probably 2005 or 2006, I took an art class. My professor came down on me hard for making everything … Continue reading When Something You Create Becomes Precious
A close friend walked for her PhD yesterday! This is especially impressive because she works full time, has two kids under the age of five, and has ADD (ADHD?). I am SO happy for her! She worked hard and this has taken years of consistent, hard work to succeed. I was one of the ones … Continue reading Now We Can Call Her ‘Doctor’
One of my friends has earned her PhD in Computer Science, and I'm super excited for her! She's married and has two wee children, and her husband watched them and worked from home while she worked on her Masters and then her PhD. It was a TON of work, and she struggled at times, but … Continue reading Congratulations to My Friend
This is a little older, but I wasn't able to get the photos my family took from it until now. I had a close friend, who is military, drop by my parents around Thanksgiving. She has been having a hard time, and I remembered that she loved making Gingerbread Houses, so I picked one up … Continue reading Puzzling the Neighbors – Gingerbread House Edition
We got to go to house on the rock! There are no photos here because they don't allow them, and I don't want to share photos of my friends without their permission. But my friend from Montreal came with her husband and two kids, and my friend from Madison came with her younger kid. My … Continue reading House on the Rock and Swollen Feet
If you're a Neil Gaiman fan, you probably heard about his event at the House on the Rock on Halloween in 2010. They were celebrating the tenth anniversary of his novel 'American Gods', I believe. (No, not an affiliate link. I'll tell you if it's an affiliate link.) Here's the thing. My friends are HUGE … Continue reading Neil Gaiman and How My Best Friend Rode the Carousal at House on the Rock
