Versus: Movie Edition

I watched both Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse and Wreck-it Ralph Breaks the Internet tonight. I’m sure everyone interested has already seen both, but I hadn’t. I grabbed them from Redbox while filling a Rx, and I’m happy to report… Spiderverse kicked Wreck-it Ralph‘s ass. I’m so happy that Spiderverse lived up to its hype. I’ve […]


I’ve been fussing with the idea of going completely #nopoo since I shaved my head around New Year’s last year. I’d heard about it, it was intriguing, but most of all, my hair has been subjected to daily shampooing for at least 20 years, and probably more like 25. It’s frizzy on good days, no […]

Theme Change

I changed my theme this morning. I wanted to like the Twenty Nineteen theme, but it just wasn’t doing it for me. This is better, for now, until I spend a lot of time at my site and get tired of it. I miss the days when I knew how to code my own blog. […]


I’m going to be doing the Blog All About It blog challenge by herding cats & burning soup. If you like to blog, it’s not too late to start! April’s topic – “sweet”. Radical. Awesome. Dude. Sweet. Does that conjure up guys with long hair and surfboards? Skateboards maybe? I don’t do either, but I […]
