I swear, I don’t know what I’d do if we’d never come up with this whole interconnected awesomeness thing. I re-launched my business earlier this year, which involved picking a new business name. It was incredibly hard to come up with a name I liked that was also what my business needed, and I was… Continue reading The Internet ROCKS.
There are very few bad things about being a tall gal. But this is one of them. THE GAPS! The gaps that can occur between sock and legging, between glove and sleeve, and especially between waistband and shirt hem. Those are horrible things to experience, especially on a cold and windy day such as today.… Continue reading On being female and tall
It’s no secret that I’ve reacted poorly to the occasional advice column in the past, including one by Miss Manners herself. But I’m happy to say that I found her most recent column to be right on the nose. Particularly of note are the comments about eating soup with a fork, and making sure wedding… Continue reading Miss Manners is back on top!

To be fair, Rubicon went with the lighter gray color, whereas ours is a dark charcoal… Continue reading More bedspread fame
1) I got married. That was kind of busy. 2) I have a new job. It, of course, takes up a lot of my time, passion, energy, and tennis elbow quotient. But it’s loads of fun! I’m the French Linguistic QA Specialist at NCsoft, and I primarily focus on French-language text in Aion, a Korean-developed… Continue reading Ten reasons I haven’t blogged lately.
I swore I wouldn’t wear heels at my wedding. I SWORE. I didn’t want to be any taller, I didn’t want to be uncomfortable, and I didn’t want to trip when I walked down the aisle or danced with my dad. But guess what? JIMMY CHOOS AT THE RACK FOR $100. Beautiful, delicate off-white silk… Continue reading Aah, Choo!
1) The Date: 07-17-10. Its official! 2) The Update: Looks like the U-Village glassybaby got downgraded.
Found out a great way to permanently recognize your union the other day. 1) Put on your engagement/wedding ring after washing hair. 2) Hold the dryer in the ring-free hair, and use your ringed hand to finger-comb hair while it’s drying, taking care to expose the ring itself to the stream of very hot air.… Continue reading Wedding B(r)ands
