40 Bags in 40 Days: Days 7 & 8

40 Bags in 40 Days: Days 7 & 8
I finished my 40 bags in 40 days task early today, so that’s something. I had scheduled the pantry for a Thursday because we don’t have any scheduled classes or anything on Thursday, and I figured it would be a big task that would take me all morning. It took about 40 minutes. The funny... Read more »

40 Bags in 40 Days: Day 6
I don’t know about you, but this has been a shitty March so far, weather-wise, otherwise. Take this March and shove it. But still, I move forward in my quest to remove 40 bags in 40 days from my house. It actually feels pretty good to do so, cleansing, kind of (literally). Yesterday’s task was... Read more »

Movie Revue: 300, Mr. Peabody, Non-Stop

Movie Revue: 300, Mr. Peabody, Non-Stop
Movie Revue is a collection of capsule reviews of some of the latest releases in theaters, On Demand, and everywhere in between. 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE.  I’m not sure that anybody was really asking for a 300 sequel seven years after the fact, but, well, here we are.  Substituting director Noam Murro for Zack...

40 Bags in 40 Days: Days 3, 4, and 5

40 Bags in 40 Days: Days 3, 4, and 5
I’m still on track to remove 40 bags of crap from my house in 40 days. Yesterday I actually filled up two additional bags of literal crap (from the backyard; now that the snow is finally melting, we’re finding many little surprise pockets of dog poop). The past few days haven’t been super exciting cleaning-wise.... Read more »

The Walking Dead recap: "Alone"

The Walking Dead recap: "Alone"
Oh, this show. Every time I watch it, I feel like I’m watching wasted promise. The premise is so good. The potential for drama and change and tension is so high. But the show fails time and again because the characters have been so poorly written for so long. Actually, it’s interesting. Critics have complained... Read more »

40 Bags in 40 Days: Day 2, the '90s are here to STAY
I am still sticking with my Lenten promise to remove a bag of crap from my house each day for the next forty days (excluding Sundays). I wanted to post this yesterday, but my laptop (where I had sent all of my photos) decided to be a butt and wound up in the computer hospital.... Read more »

In case you missed it, I’m taking the 40 Bags in 40 Days challenge. Starting today, I will be removing (at least) one bag of stuff from my house. So far, so good. One day, one bag of garbage. 40 Bags in 40 Days, Day 1 Today’s Project: Junk drawer under the bed. History: The... Read more »

My Lenten Promise: 40 Bags in 40 Days

My Lenten Promise: 40 Bags in 40 Days
I love the idea of making a Lenten promise and I love the idea of spring cleaning. I don’t actually like to follow through on either of those things. However, put the two things together and I feel like we’re cooking with gas. My friend Melissa linked to the White House, Black Shutters blog on... Read more »

33 Best Tweets from the Oscars

33 Best Tweets from the Oscars
The Oscars happened last night. As far as awards go, the whole thing was completely predictable. Nary a surprise in the bunch, except maybe American Hustle walking away with zero awards. Spike Jonze took the award for Original Screenplay, for Her, beating out David O. Russell in the Hustle’s best-chance Oscar category. Also, I love... Read more »
