Interview brain

I had seven job interviews today. I can no longer brain. But please, tell me about a time you came in conflict with another person, and how you resolved that conflict. Or perhaps you’d like to inform me about the most creative solution you’ve ever come up with in regards to a problem. Maybe a ...

Avenue Q at the Boulder Dinner Theater

Second time I’ve seen this musical, but the first time in a small theater. Mike and I went with my parents, who had never seen it before. They loved it. I thought the company did a really excellent job, particularly the lady who played Gary Coleman. She was great, and was obviously having an enormous amount of ...

Entitled

So if you haven’t watched the Jon Stewart bit about Chaos on Bullshit Mountain, you should. It’s okay. I’ll wait. I haven’t seen Jon Stewart this pissed off in a long, long time. Probably not since Sarah Palin was saying that liberals (you know, like those awful people in New York City) aren’t real Americans. ...

No, I’m not RTing your anger about Libya.

I’ve been seeing a lot of chatter on Facebook and Twitter, about how we should cut off all the foreign aid to Libya and other countries that are currently experiencing anti-US riots and protests. I guess it’s easy to get all het up about us giving money to people who supposedly hate us. No, I’m ...

Hate Fatigue

This just in: women are people and it’s still not okay to threaten to rape someone or encourage them to commit suicide if you don’t like their opinion. I can’t believe that it’s 2012 and this shit is still happening. It’s easier to ignore hateful name-calling when it’s coming from people you already know oppose you. ...

We support marriage equality and support the movement to secure equal treatment under law for same-sex couples. We also support the freedom of churches and religious entities to decide how ...

A plus size lady on Project Runway

I cringe every time there’s anyone plus size on Project Runway. It just makes me want to curl up in preparation for the inevitable whining and disaster. In the episode I just watched, Ven complains that the “proportions are completely off.” And then keeps complaining about how hard it is to deal with a plus-size ...

The pooing of the hair.

I just realized to my horror that I haven’t had a blog post today. No, I refuse to break my streak! I was planning to get my awesome moving post done last night, but instead I just sort of stared at my computer screen and drooled until I couldn’t keep my eyes open any more. ...

Spoilers 1

I’ve never really understood the near-spastic reaction a lot of people seem to have to spoilers. This is why I’m sometimes really bad about marking for them when I’m talking about movies and the like, though I do try to be conscientious about it. I’ve pretty much always been that way, too. I’m one of ...

Well. That was an exciting 24 hours.

This time yesterday I was under the mistaken impression that my husband would be flying to Houston this evening. Oh, how wrong I was. I texted him yesterday to double check what time he’d be arriving. He answered that he’d be getting in at 7:50, assuming he was still alive. This kind of text message ...
