Kudos to Spike TV

A few weeks ago, I walked out of my office building and nearly screamed in delight to see this: (My camera phone took pretty lousy pictures that day so I was reluctant to post them. Fortunately, I was able to find these photos at TheForce.Net. Although these weren’t taken by me, this is the actual […]

National Portfolio Day

A few days ago, LifeClever posted an articled called Portfolio Day might make you cry, but it’s worth it. I suddenly had a flashback… As mentioned in my “About” page, I once was a very serious artist who was hell-bent on attending a good art program at one of the nation’s top art schools (RISD, […]

Minding My Girls

At a recent girls night out, a few of my friends started gabbing about bras and how we all must get fitted for one. Eh? Didn’t we all go through this during puberty? My friends then went on to explain that most women are wearing the wrong bra size and only a fitting by a professional […]

Book Review: The Case for Christ

(I have been posting more book reviews lately for a good reason: I will be moving soon and am currently going through my mountains of books in an effort to divide them into “keep” and “donate” piles. Obviously, there are certain titles that hold dear places in my heart, and I cannot help but re-read them and share them […]

Book Review: Marley and Me

My sister read this book when it first released and upon finishing it, she exclaimed that I had to read it. “You know that the dog is going to die and you prepare and brace yourself for the inevitable…and then you end up crying at the end anyway.” (image from Harper Collins) I was intrigued, but I […]

My Imaginary TV Boyfriend

Being an engaged woman doesn’t mean I can’t have my celebrity crushes. Today I’d like to introduce my other imaginary boyfriend… Meet Jim Halpert: (image courtesy of Allow me to clarify.

Meet My New Baby

…my new MacBook Pro! I constantly have memory-intensive programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Quark all running at the same time….with music playing and Firefox and Safari opened to 12 different pages.

Book Review: Love Story

When I first met R, I thought he was a typical womanizer and wouldn’t give him the time of day. He tried his best to win me over and when he finally succeeded in taking me out on a date, I gave him the third degree. One of the first questions I asked was, “What is your favorite book?” […]
