My newest love affair

I recently discovered Nutella®. I eat it directly out of the jar with a spoon. No bread for me to cover the flavor. Creamy chocolate & hazelnut butter. It reminds me of those Ferrero Rocher chocolates. You know the ones. Those little hazelnut chocolate candies surrounded by a crisp wafer rolled in more chocolate & […]

Happy Trails

When I saw number on my caller ID this morning, I thought I severely overslept and groggily answered. It was my neighbor & I figured he was calling to see what we were doing today and the convo went like this: Neighbor: “Mornin’ Chris!! You ever see a wagon train?” Me (what did he just say): […]

Pink is Sexy…and lethal

We’ve all heard the “What kind of gun should I get my wife?” question and the response “A pink one”. Seriously? Would you ask what kind of hammer to get your wife? What do you think she would say if she told you she wanted a hammer and you came home with a teensy little hammer? […]

Dry Cleaning Bill

I’ve listened to all TWELVE Liberty or Zombie podcasts, without fail, every time I get their notification email. I’ve listened via my Logitech Revue while folding laundry, via my smartphone while cooking and this morning via my phone on my commute in to work. At about 46/48 minutes, it’s just about the perfect length to keep me […]

Plastic Passion

Guess what’s in this bag that’s on my lap:   Let me start by saying: I don’t care for Polymer firearms. I’m a steel & wood kinda gal. So when the gun I’m about to tell y’all about caught my eye, I struggled. Seriously. I was about to go against all my arguments, one being: I […]

Why children don’t need email

About 2 years ago, I received an email from Xbox notifying me that my Xbox Live Gold Membership has been confirmed. Huh. Weird. I don’t have a Xbox. I ignored the email, writing it off as spam. A few months later, another email came in telling me that my Gamer Tag has been updated. Again. Weird. […]

Procrastination

I’ve always been the type that with the more time I have, the less I get done. Case in point: Today is Saturday. I woke up at 6:20 am (only 20 minutes later than my usual weekday), got out of bed, debated on whether to hop in the shower right away or to have my coffee […]
