A Thundery Weekend

Since we had a glut of writing stuff last week, today’s post will be pictures and fun. I like to keep you on your toes, after all. This weekend in my lovely town was Thunder in the Valley, when Johnstown welcomes all the bikers it can handle. In honor of the event, I swallow my […]

Breaking the Silence

Regular readers of the blog (all three of you–hi!) may or may not have noticed my reticence in specifying my location. I’ve never hesitated to mention I’m from Pennsylvania, and I’ve referenced my hometown once or twice. But I’ve never specified where, exactly, I live now. That’s about to change. With the upcoming Presidential primaries […]

Well, it’s officially snowing. It won’t stick, but it’s floating down, little white flakes of coldness. This must be PA’s way of saying, “See? Now don’t you wish you’d stayed in Virginia?”

Something New

While we were back in PA over the weekend, I started a little something new. I don’t know if it’ll be a novel, or a short story, or maybe nothing at all. I’m not even totally sure what it’s about. I have a few ideas, but none of them are really concrete. But I was […]

Going Home

Just for the weekend, for a wedding. Today, I have laundry to do, a haircut to finally get (maybe), a suitcase to pack…and a massively bad cold. I’m off in the clouds right now, thanks to the cold meds. I can’t complete a train of thought to save my life. Be back Monday.

Because it’s been a while…

Listening to: Rise Against, “Worth Dying For” When was the last time I posted flower pictures? I’m not even sure–spring, maybe. Well, I have some gorgeous ones for you today, and some bonuses–my brother and I, and procreating insects! (Not in the same picture.) First, the sunflower. I can’t take credit for this–it was all […]

I’m Back, Baby!

Listening to: Guster, “Red Oyster Cult” Wow. What a freakin’ week. I did the drive all by myself, both times, and made it out alive. It’s not really that bad, but I get myself all nervous and worked up about it beforehand, and that makes it harder. But I did it yesterday in about 6.5 […]

On the Road Again

Posting will probably be sporadic until next Tuesday/Wednesday, as I decided to go to PA. Seeing my little brother for the first time since Christmas, yay! Driving 7.5 hours by myself, not so much. But worth it. =) The irony is, I’ve been wanting to write so bad for about 24 hours now, but haven’t […]

Listening to: Maroon 5, “Harder to Breathe” Waiting to find out if I’m going up to PA alone today, or with The Husband this weekend. If I go today, I will be seeing my friends and probably writing in my ol’ hangout tonight. I’ve been going a little crazy (“a little?!” (Okay, is it sad […]

One Year

Listening to: Me First & The Gimme Gimmes, “Save the Best for Last” (Anyone else think it’s awesome that a band is able to make a living and a name from being, essentially, a cover band?) Hey! Today’s the one year anniversary of my very first blog post. It’s a Blogiversary! And my very second […]
