So this nerd walks into a bar…

So this nerd walks into a bar…
And apparently, some woman tries to pick up on him. Yes, that nerd was my husband and yes, this is his story and he’s sticking to it.  Last night, while watching hockey with a group of his nerd friends after work, Harry had a woman hit on him and [...]

Say cheese…and pose for a family photo

Posted by Laurie on April 23rd, 2012

The other day I realized that the last time my family had a formal portrait taken was 2005.
The thing is, I’m not really into formal family pictures. For the most part, I prefer the intimate photos taken when nobody knows about them. You know, the un-posed moments where someone is talking with their mouth full [...]

Hmmm. Apparently I am losing my mind. I forgot to post this. Yeah. So happy reading about the Tax Day that came…and went…
I’m sorry to have to do this, but…Tuesday is April 17 and the IRS has declared that Tuesday shall be known as “Give Us All Your Money Day.” No, I don’t know why [...]

You’ll have to excuse my blog. You see, I am writing it in a foggy haze of chocolate overdose. Yes, I indulged just a bit at Easter. And yes, I know Easter was like two weeks ago. People, I ate a serious amount of chocolate.
I couldn’t help it. Look, it’s not like I didn’t try [...]

Hilary Rosen works, SAHMs apparently don’t

My parents were pretty scrupulous about pounding manners into my sisters and me. To this day, I do not discuss politics, money, sex or the state of anyone’s marriage in public. I also don’t pick my teeth at the dinner table or go to the grocery store wearing pajamas. At the same time my parents [...]

My parents have Facetime, so don’t be naked

My parents just got new iPads. Now before you wonder why I’m telling you this, let me just say one thing. My parents are no technological wizards – but they aren’t afflicted with a disease I like to call we-think-we’re-technological-whiz-kids-but-really-we-don’t-know-a-thing-about-technology-and-can-barely-use-the-TV-remote.
No, my parents can operate a remote. It’s Harry’s parents that have issues with all those [...]

Titanic 3D…or waiting for Jack to fall off a door

Posted by Laurie on April 4th, 2012

Apparently, this is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. I know this because – to the horror of most members of my family – the movie “Titanic” has been rereleased. In 3D. Really. 3D. As if the movie wasn’t bad enough, now it’s in 3D for reasons that are honestly beyond even [...]
