Play by Play of I Am Bread

I Am Bread is a video game on steam. Your mission? Become toast. That’s it. This is some of what I heard while the husband played this bizarre game tonight. Me after just getting to the bottom of the steps: *dumbfounded stare* Trey: just shut up and pass me the LSD. Me: have you just …

Sadface Man: Origins

So, yesterday, I posted to Facebook about Sadface Man and there being a story behind him. Like anyone within spitting distance of Ikea and at one point on a relatively tight budget, we are devotees of the Expedit bookcase. The husband and I bought our house in 2009 and needed a new option for our …

Black Rat Snake

My brave, idiot cat, Luna is a mouser. She stalks and attacks critters that invade her home. She’s kind of awesome that way. She also sometimes just sees crap and stalks it vigilantly. Today, she swiped at something in my basement office and I heard a sound that sounded a bit more agitated than a …

This is the Story of How I Almost Died

Warning: Um. Sad. 2012 was the year my husband and I started to really try and start our family. We’d already spent our 2nd wedding anniversary, in June 2012, heartbroken when I suffered a miscarriage at five weeks. In the intervening months, we kept trying and “got lucky” on Christmas Eve. I knew better and …

lionwtf

Yes, yes, I know I post really infrequently. Life has been… crappy horrible insane busy. Shut up. I was “catching up”  on my lolcats RSS feed today and stumbled upon the brilliantly adorable short film starring Zachary Quinto, Dog Eat Dog. From the video’s description: “Dog Eat Dog” is a short film based on the true story of how actor/producer Zachary Quinto finally …

Impatient Horticulture

I am not the gardener in the family. Never have been. My mom had a decent sized garden when I was a kid and she taught me the basics of crop rotation, watering, and weeding. I took advantage of plucking fresh string beans off the vine and popping them in my mouth (and yes, I …

What’s It Do?

I got two Desktop Daleks for Christmas. I unpacked them to put them on my desk. While doing so, this happened: Husband: “What’s it do?” Me: *blinkblink* . . . Exterminates! I would have thought that was obvious . . .

Wedding Anniversary Weekend of DOOM!

Ok, not really of DOOM. But, oh the mishaps were very Lathrop-y. Because it is so much fun and we have such a wonderful time with it at the Mocks, I tracked down a Beatles Rock Band Limited Edition bundle. It comes with a drum set, Hoffner bass controller, microphone and microphone stand. Buying all …

Honeymoon Recap

Theoretically, I should really do a post about different events and chunks of the honeymoon. Likelihood of that? Slim to none. I may surprise myself and do something about the different snippets of awesome that comprised my honeymoon in San Diego.

Wedding Day Recap

Goal #1: At the end of the day, be married to the person you love most in the world. ACHIEVED Things did not all go as planned, which if anyone will recall, was planned. And everyone loved it anyway which was so much more important to me.
