Book Wrap-Up: March 2018

March felt like a much more productive month for reading than February did.  I am not sure what happened to February, but not only did it seem to go by in a huge blur, but I also was not as inspired to read.  But thankfully I got the wind back in my sails and am … Continue reading Book Wrap-Up: March 2018

Book Review: Crawl

I am becoming SUCH a fan of the novella! What the hell is the difference between a short story, a novelette, and a novella you ask? I have absolutely no effing idea! I thought there was a word count thing, then I thought there was a page count thing, but it seems as time goes … Continue reading Book Review: Crawl

A Trip To The Dentist

I just recently had my quarterly teeth cleaning at the dentist.  Yes, quarterly.  It takes some work to have a flawless smile, you know.  Like many of you, I detest going to the dentist.  I even try to make it as painless and convenient as possible by selecting a dentist that is in the same … Continue reading A Trip To The Dentist

Life Coach: Mrs. Peacock

Clue is one of my all-time favorite movies. What's NOT to love about it?  There are so many quotable characters, witty one-liners, and animated performances.  I have always favored the female stars in this movie over the males: Mrs. Peacock, Mrs. White, and Miss Scarlet.  From the trio, let's take a look at what Mrs. … Continue reading Life Coach: Mrs. Peacock

Leap Day: Make It Count

Hooray for an extra day!  But why can't it be a Saturday instead of a Monday?  Ugh.  2016 has a leap year, so there is an extra day in February.  We get a leap year every 4 years based on the fact that a complete orbit of the earth around our sun takes exactly 365.2422 days to complete. … Continue reading Leap Day: Make It Count
