The dog and I are on a steamy summer stroll around the neighborhood. We spot a family across the street. Two parents; in tow are a stroller with a baby, and a little 3 year old girl.

Yup, this is my dog. Not to be confused with me.

Little girl: “A doggie!”

Me: A friendly smile and a broad wave.

Little girl’s mom: “Look! The doggie said hello!”

Well, actually, the owner said hello. The dog didn’t even notice you. But you know. I guess I can see how you would confuse us two.

No, actually I can’t. That was a really weird thing for that mom to say.

Top 5 Benefits of a Massive 2nd-Degree Curling Iron Burn on Your Neck March 25, 2016

  1. Not only am I certain that my curling iron still works, but I am able to roughly gauge just how hot it gets. “Blistering hot”, to be precise.
  2. You are able to discern if people are actually listening to you, or just feigning attention. Eyes that wander to your neck is a dead giveaway.
  3. It is a chance to finally try out that sexy side-swept-hair-covering-face look. Bonus points because the style requires NO HEAT.
  4. One is forced to contemplate the subjective passage of time as you rummage through the first aid supplies, only to discover they all expired in 2013. (Even though that was technically 3 years ago, it really does not feel like it was that far in the past. So that Neosporin must still be good, right?)
  5. I now know the universal magic words to getting any same-day appointment are “I think it’s infected”.

Come on, you are all thinking it. So, for the record: it is NOT a hickey, ALRIGHT?

Blogcast: The Blooper Reel April 9, 2009

If you’re a fan of Idol, then you’ll get this in the much larger picture. If you are not, hang in there; it’ll still make sense.

I’ve had the song Mad World (originally by Tears for Fears) stuck in my head since about, oh… Tuesday. I’ve always loved the song, and was inspired to learn how to play it on the guitar. After a few nights of practice, I felt ready to take it to the next level: recording myself. Now, I had no intention of sharing it with anyone, and it was more about hearing what I sounded like than publishing anything. Unfortunately, I didn’t rock it nearly as well as I had hoped, and upon reviewing the several takes I realized the real gems were the moments between the singing and the strumming. I didn’t realize I was so funny when sitting around amusing myself. 

Thanks to the magic of movie editing software, I plucked out all the “in-betweens” and pasted them together into a lovely little montage. The following is what ensues when you have too much time on your hands:

What’s in a name?

Sadly, there is no “part two”. Originally, we planned to discuss anthropomorphism (the ascription of human characteristics to things non-human). We even had visual aids. But then James and I got really into our debate and things started to get… “heated”. Then we tried to do a few more takes, but that also meant a few more drinks had also gone down, and things got less and less interesting to the 3rd party observer. The icing on the cake was that on the best take, the audio/video sync got messed up and it wasn’t worth making you suffer through it. I decided it wasn’t meant to be.

But, all is not lost! In case you ever wondered what goes down pre-production here’s a sample. (To note, I am not this bitchy or vain in real life… or at least that’s what I’d like to believe. And James and I really do get along- I swear!)
