Here it is, just what you’ve been waiting for, the second installment of Olympics Commentary, done our way. Enjoy! Speed Skating – Men’s 1000 Shmeegle wins! No he didn’t, he came in third. No, he was first. No he wasn’t. Yes. Oh, time correction, he’s second. He had been first. That’s what I said. Oh,Continue reading “Olympics Commentary, Our Way (Part 2)”
Controversy aside, K and I are watching the Olympics. I can’t help myself. Neither can she. We watch, we get inspired, we feel the universal connection. And, we do our own commentary. Truthfully, we don’t just do commentary for the Olympics. It’s a nightly, daily, hourly occurrence in our house. But when the Olympics areContinue reading “Olympics Commentary, Our Way (Part 1)”

Where’s Kate?, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. This is a bit blurry, but what’s a girl to do when she just has a disposable waterproof camera. I ask you. Had to post this though. Loved the whole look of it and Kate was cracking me up with this.
I was cleaning out my wallet today and sharing what I’d cleaned out with my work com padres. I recently “moved” into a smaller wallet so as to avoid the Castanza wallet syndrome. You know the Castanza wallet syndrome… an enormously huge and fatty wallet that is so big, holding all cards and receipts you’veContinue reading “What’s In Your Wallet”
I admit it. I ran her over. Not an actual person named Barbie, so quit reaching for the phone and 911, no… the doll. She was sprawled out, looking just like a crime scene, in the middle of the road. I couldn’t stop in time to avoid her and really don’t know if I would’veContinue reading “Running Over Barbie”
Not to sound like Meatloaf or anything, but I was just opening up my wordpress dashboard… kind of the control room for all things blog… and noticed the stats graph. To be pun-ish and intend it, it’s a very graphic description of how many viewers I haven’t had today. bah ha ha ha! Makes meContinue reading “Sadness By The Dashboard Light”
I happen to love the movie The Princess Bride. It’s up there in my top five I’d say. And it is to this favored movie of mine that I now turn for ideas about how to go about performing a proper marriage ceremony. Mary? Martin?

We were making dinner tonight (orange sesame chicken, cheddar garlic mashed potatoes, steamed carrots and cauliflower, and green beans), and while we were in the process we were also unloading the dishwasher and washing the dishes/loading the dishwasher. Suddenly Karen says to me, hey, you know something that annoys me… it annoys me when someoneContinue reading “Finally, IT Happened”
Sometimes, believe it or not, I revert back to being a kid. Or at least, I have kid moments. I’m no longer embarrassed by them because, you know, they just happen. Probably, I think, for everyone. My latest, which occurred last night, was by far one of the most hilarious I’ve had. Here’s the story…Continue reading “Kid In Disguise”
The Great Migration Published November 17th, 2005 Essays 1 Comment Edit The think tank has moved. I did, however, bring over my little missives from the previous site. Stay tuned…. Saturday, November 12th, 2005 8:46 am Back to Busy-ness I am amused and feeling a sense of happy contentment. It’s Friday night, and weContinue reading “The Great Migration – Revisited”
Asses Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl The Ass is the proud symbol of Catalonia. The people who live in this apartment are obviously very proud.
I am amused and feeling a sense of happy contentment. It’s Friday night, and we have no plans. I think to myself… what a luxury. We seem to be busy all the time. And I want to know, when did that happen? When did busy become the way of life? I’m scratching my head here.Continue reading “Back to Busy-ness”
Lately, I feel like an accessory. Or, more to the point, I feel like in being gay, I’m a sort of accessory. Ten years ago, we weren’t, the gay I mean, even talked about, except, of course, in a negative light. Now we are everywhere. Flip the channel on the television and you’ll findContinue reading “How To Accessorize”
