    Plug It In, Plug It In

    by

    I just finished adding a few plug-ins to my blog and I must say, it was easier and quicker than I’d expected it to be.  I say this not really knowing how to use my new plug-ins…and it is definitely possible that I made mistakes and installed them incorrectly.  It’s …

    Are You There, Jim Groom? It’s me, Maura.

    by

    Ideally that is how my Skype chat with the Reverend would have started tonight.  Instead, at 11:06 a small chirp from my computer alerted me that I had a new Skype message as well as contact – it was Jim Groom and he had said, “hello”.  Forty-five minutes later, here …

    Resolutions: Part Deux

    by

    Well I am back to share with you goal number two of three that I have for 2012.  Drum roll please!  Just kidding, it is not that exciting.  Goal 2: Stop buying clothes just because they are a good deal and start buying clothes that I really love and say …

    New Year, New You!

    Try saying that title five times fast!  And now, make it your mantra for 2012 – it’s mine…in a somewhat sincere but mostly sarcastic kind of way.  It’s not that I don’t like making resolutions for the new year, it’s just that I actually kind of like who I am …

    A Year (Sort of…) of Blogging

    by

    I have to say “sort of” because there were long stretches of time when I kind of forgot about this blog.  That probably worked out well for you though, I can imagine I get to be a bit boring at times.  Hard to imagine you might not want to read …

    Thanksgiving, Better Late than Never!

    Do You Feel that Draft?

    Triple Threat

    I happen to believe that there is a direct correlation between quantity of butter shown and quality of a post written.  Butter is better – can I get an “Amen, Paula Deen!”?  There’s a lot of butter in this post – it might just knock your socks off.

    Let Me Break It Down for You

    Don’t you just love midterms?  They really bring out the best in everyone.  Midterms allow us to see how people deal with stress.  You’ve got those quiet, withdrawn individuals who spend more time in the library than anywhere else.  There are those people who seem to think they are the …

    That’s the Way the (Fortune) Cookie Crumbles

    by

    Tonight, my fortune cookie at dinner read, “It’s time to break out of your routine and try something new.”  Maybe my fortune cookie was trying to say, “Hey, why don’t you snap out of this routine of having a blog but not posting to it, you ninny!” 

    So here I …
