Internet Archaeology

You know what’s weird?  The internet will someday be a weird spooky graveyard. Think about it…the ‘nets has really only been around for maybe 15-20 years.  Not really long enough for anyone to be “born” online and then “die” online. And by born and die, I mean…in REAL life.  Think about this blog, what the…

2 Kitten Power

There are 2 kinds of men in the world, those that want to go out of their way to help women lift heavy objects and those that feel women are as strong as men and can help themselves.  Guess which kind of man Mr. VS happens to be? That’s right, he’s the kind that believes…

A Plea to Holiday Foods

Ummm…I slacked and didn’t post this before the holidays…so now you can enjoy it post-holidays.  Plus the weight is still hanging on like a fat tick, so there’s that. Therefore this post still applies. The holidays are an evil time of year.  There is food EVERYWHERE!!!  SALT, FAT, SUGAR, SALT, FAT, SUGAR!!!  Everywhere the eye…

Are Bloggers Self-Centered Nitwits?

I read an article the other day that seemed to be crassly implying (okay, outright stating) that Bloggers are self-centered nitwits. That we write about ourselves because we’re obsessed with ourselves and that people who are not self absorbed wouldn’t be sitting there writing about themselves all the time. I gotta call bullshit on this.  Because…

A Mister Mister Holiday Tragedy

When I walked in the door the other day after work, Mr. VS was grooving around the kitchen while listening to Mister Mister and simultaneously baking chocolate chip cookies.  He has a Mister Mister record on vinyl.  It was blasting in all its 80’s glory. It was embarrassing.  But then I noticed the huge bottles of Jameson…

Mr. VS and Myself

Myspace to My Place ~ a love story

Today I’m going to bring you guys back in time!  (BACK IN TIMEEEE!!) via a sweet time machine DeLorean so you can witness how Mr. VS and I met. Yes, it was online and yes we had a blind date (sorta) and yes I was afraid that Mr. VS was a murderer. Before we jump into…

An Awkward Encounter: BFF Edition

Have you ever had a really awkward encounter with someone you’re quite close to?  Have you ever seen someone “out of context” and it made your brain feel all funny and mushy and you couldn’t speak like an edu-macated homo-sapien?  An occurrence like this happened to me just the other day with my friend Annie…

Black Friday Crusades

Hello All on this lovely Black Friday!  I’m here to tell you why Black Friday is the WORST invention EVER!!  I feel a little rant coming on. I think it’s pretty funny that we’ve got this holiday where we’re supposed to be loving each other, spending time with family, giving and being thankful and then…

Bitey the Cat in the Woods

Bitey: Woods Cat

Wishing all of you Americans out there a happy ThanksG! And to celebrate I’m going to tell you about Cats and Fall foliage. Seems legit, right? Here we go… The other day Bitey and I went for a walk in the woods. That’s one thing that’s really cool about ole Bitey is that he’ll actually…

Fan Girl Alert: Peaky Blinders

Typically I’m not a fan girl. I hate being too “into” anything.  But ya know what? Being too cool and aloof is so hard that I might be slipping into dreaded fan-girl territory. EEK!!  Say it ain’t so! I mean I try to maintain a certain image cause I can’t be seen as one of the…

Broken, The Internet Is

So there are some people out there that think they are going to break the internet with their ass. These ‘people’ shall remain nameless since I can’t stand to toot their horn more than it has already been tooted by everyone else on the planet. However, I do have a few things to say on…

How To Second-Hand Shop Like a Boss

I’m a big second-hand shopper. I love it. It’s like Raiders of the Lost Ark to me. Well…I guess…Raiders of the Lost Closet where you can find one of a kind things without spiders all over your back or huge boulders attempting to crush you. Plus you’ll pay cheap money for cute things and ALSO it’s…

Tomatoes and the text Sexy Canning Equals Botulism

Sexy Canning = Botulism

Mr. VS and I were quite domesticated (like badly behaved pets) this fall and we tried some canning from the bounty of the land, i.e. our garden. BTW…we totally have a farm or something minus any animals except cats (Cat farm?).  Our farm has no name but might be called Poison Ivy Farm because of…

Submitting to the Sickness

Per usual I have obtained through no fault of my own (I swear) my typical September Cold.  YEEEHAWWW.  So very thrilling I can’t even contain myself as I wave my tissue pom-poms in the air with a barely mustered excitement. I don’t know what it is, but as soon as September rolls around I always…
