Disney2014: MagicBands and MyDisneyExperience

I woke up this morning in a sweat, but that was great because it was the end to my fever. So! Back to Disney2014. I wrote that we’d discuss the food next. But. Before I talk about anything yummy, I need to mention two things that improved our Disney extravaganza. First:  I think I mentioned […]

Common Sense: The New National Deficit

Pixy needs a martini. I went out today.  On my own. That’s probably nothing to most of you.  But . . . I don’t like going out.  I like staying home.  I like staying home for more than a week at a time, if possible.  I like WALLOWING in the staying at home. And I […]

Goodnight, Groddle: Home is Where the Heart is.

I’m not known for written brevity.  I’ll try my hardest to keep it down to a simple caption basis. A Glitch Tour, now that it has closed. The true beginning . . . the golden ticket! The loading screen.  A planet, which as the game loaded, would populate with these trees/flowers/etc.  As the game came […]

Ladybug Plague

Ah, Mondays. Woke up, and instead of making coffee and sitting down to email, as is my habit, I somehow found myself . . . doing dishes? Yes.  Of course, “first thing in the morning” was actually . . . oh, 11:34. You’re giving me dirty looks.  I know it. I suppose the day of […]

Goodbye to Glitch. (And some shopping bits.)

A little bit of nerditude sad today.  Last night I received word that the game Glitch was closing down.   Glitch will be missed.  It was a departure from the games which have flooded the market en masse.  There was no shooting, no blowing people up, no violence (well, except a rook attack) . . […]

Pixy Discovers Herman Miller

Why, hello there! Bet you wondered where I was . . . we decided to take a last-minute minibreak. Well, I took a minibreak, and poor Knobby work work worked.  But this was a better, not bitter, pill to swallow, since he woke up on the first morning of MY minibreak and discovered he’d been […]

The Pixy List: 5-18-2012

Hey there hi there ho there, There’s this little game that came out this week, called Diablo 3 (or, “III”, you know, whatever floats your nerdboat), and although I didn’t give it much thought in the years and years everyone spoke about it with grand reverence (didn’t play the first two), apparently we are playing […]

I had a heart then, but the Queen has been overthrown . . .

Chit-chat, chit-chat.  Knobby’s been working constantly lately — gets up, goes to the desk, takes a break to shower or fix a sandwich, back to desk, gets up to turn on the tv for the nightly 489263 games of hockey playoffs, sits and listens to those through the wall as he works till he goes […]

Lazy Day

Hmm. So today (Saturday), we decided that we could go ahead and set up Knobby’s computer in the office again, since we no longer need the house staged.  And, honestly, because the weekend loomed very long without the prospect of computer distraction. He then spent the entire day playing Skyrim.  The Entire Day.  I sat […]

What a Day

What a day. First:  Release Day! (I love this trailer!) Second:  I feel like I should be very cautious in making claims just yet . . . (We still have to leap the hurdle of a home appraisal.) . . . but . . . . . . We have a buyer for our house! […]
