We’ve been sick

The whole family has been sick for the past week or so. Not all at the same time, but Grandma Kitty and Grandma Debbie were out of commission all last week. TJ had the stomach flu before them. And yesterday, I got hit with it. Hopefully, normal service will resume soon. Tags: blog stuff, sick

Fantastic Cross-Over Fanfic: The X-Files and The Handmaid’s Tale

Back in college, I remember one of my roommates showing me a fantastic fanfic that featured Mulder and Scully from The X-Files in the world of Margaret Atwood’s excellent dystopic novel, The Handmaid’s Tale. A woman going by the name lilprincess8584 on eBay pointed me in the right direction to find it again. The author, Amy Vincent, gives permission to […]

Robert Jordan died today; the world has lost a great man and a great author

I clicked on Robert Jordan’s blog at Dragonmount today on a whim. What I saw took my breath away. The author of my favorite book series, and a great man besides, died today at 2:45pm. He fought valiantly against amyloidosis, but alas, such a sinister disease is no match for even the greatest of warriors. My heart […]

Lyrics to Lily’s Eyes (The Harry Potter version)

These are the lyrics to the song parody I came up with, Severus Snape and Harry Potter singing to the tune of “Lily’s Eyes” from the Broadway musical The Secret Garden. This is slightly spoilerish if you have not yet finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7). I would prefer that you do […]

I apologize for the site weirdness

I tried to upgrade WordPress to the newest installation, but now everything is all broken, especially my apostrophes. I have a support ticket in for the friendly guys at HostRocket to help me out. Hopefully, we’ll be back to normal soon. Tags: blog stuff

More Cutest Baby Ever Shirts

Checking over my referrer information in my site statistics, I found that a number of people were searching Google for “Cutest Baby Ever T-Shirt.” Happily, the top two results were from my blog here and from the Cutest Baby Ever shop at CafePress.  Unfortunately, the CafePress link went directly to the Mom of the Cutest […]

Guilty Mommy Pleasures: A Little Bit of Romance

With Valentine’s Day coming up next month, I got to thinking about romance. You remember romance, right?  It’s that thing you used to enjoy before you had kids.  (Maybe it’s why you have kids!) Time and energy are at a premium when you have little ones, so romance often disappears for long periods of time […]

New designs added to Cutest Baby Ever shop

I’ve added some new shirt designs to the Cutest Baby Ever shop on CafePress.  In addition to the original “Mom of the Cutest Baby Ever” and “Dad of the Cutest Baby Ever” shirts, you can now buy Aunt, Uncle, Grandma, and Grandpa shirts, as well as a generic “I [heart] the Cutest Baby Ever” shirts. […]

In case you didn’t notice, we’re back from being hacked

I found out from a co-worker of mine today that this site had been hacked over the weekend.  It would appear that the downtime was limited to about 24 hours. I apologize if you stopped by and had to look at that horrible hacker message.  We’re back! And a great big thank you to Morgan […]
