To Friend Or Not To Friend

Way back when we started WWFC, we – ok, I – I created a Facebook profile and fan page for the blog. I immediately started sending friend requests to everyone on the planet with a Facebook profile in the hopes that we would become viral sensations thus aiding in our quest for world domination. Ahhhh, […]

They Know Me Like The Back Of Some Random Stranger’s Hand

Facebook has or will have over a billion users this year, depending on which link you clicked on when you Googled “How many people are on Facebook in 2013?” Which is why it makes me laugh when I read post after post about how much people hate Facebook. Everybody hates Facebook so much, yet there […]

She Wears Her Name Well

Welcome to Day 8 of 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing, the creative writing challenge that 4 out of 5 horticulturalists agree is the reason for poison ivy. Today’s prompt is French, and, oh dear heavens, this one’s my fault. Don’t forget to link up at the end of this post if you participated in […]

Hyperbole

I am surrounded by jewels. Square cut rubies, multifaceted sapphires, round emeralds, amethysts, yellow diamonds… they rain down upon me as I race to match them up. No matter how many times I line up the topaz, the diamonds, the pearls, they rain down. Sometimes, I line up so many they explode around me, and […]

I’m Not Ignoring You, I’m Just Stupid

Do you Twitter? I tweeted for the first time this week, for work. I actually Googled “how to tweet” to figure it out. Yes, I’m that stupid. But I’m not alone. On a monthly basis, there are 1,830,000 global searches for “how to tweet“.  Global searches, monthly. That’s a lot of people without a clue […]

Do you know what these are? Me neither. Seriously. What are they? And where did those circle thingies go? I've "heard" of magic mushrooms, but disappearing cheese...?!

This Is Going To Be About Cheese But It’s Going To Be About Other Stuff Too Because I’ve Self-Diagnosed Myself With Adult ADD

A few days ago, I was going to write about the most excellent cheese ever, but then I met Maurice and decided to write about him instead but I promised to tell you all about the most excellent cheese ever another time, which I mean to do today but I just can’t seem to concentrate […]

Please Forward This Again And Again And Again…

…because it would seem that I wasn’t clear enough the first time. I wrote this last November and decided to repost it after I got 14 emails today from people I know and who are now automatically filtered into my junk mail file. Yeah, I’m recycling. It’s hot and my brain has melted. So sue me. […]

15,944 Minutes And Counting…

There was a time when, on Wednesdays, I would not go out.  People were not invited over on Wednesdays.  If someone did come by, they were unceremoniously (and without apology) kicked out by 8:55 pm.  I would not answer the phone or the door and the children were not allowed to talk. Since May, 2009, though, Wednesdays […]

This Week’s Word Is FODDER

Actually, last week’s word was fodder.  But last week, it sounded more like fobba.  I had a cold, not the swine flu, just an ordinary, run-of-the-mill cold.  Still hanging around, but definitely not as bad as last week.  I can finally meander more than 4 inches from a Kleenex box.  And I can finally spend […]

I’ve Seen The Future…

Please Forward This To Everyone You Know

A boy child with H1N1 went mising from the planet after winning the Nigerian lotery.  Please sign this petition to have the United Federation of Planets of the Apes finally get off their butts to find him. Ok, so I have obviously exaggerated and you knew immediately that this was not a true story.  Or […]

Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me?

Ok, I’m taking a bit of a chance here.  I run the very serious risk of offending people that I truly like and respect, but I cannot remain silent any longer.  I don’t want to single anyone out in particular.  If you read this and feel guilty, well, I can’t help your guilt, but I […]

Mafia Wars: How Do You Finish A Never Ending Game?

Ok, they said I’m allowed to write about Zynga’s Mafia Wars on Facebook so that’s what I’m going to do. Yes, there was a rant about it on We Work For Cheese earlier this month, but I’ll be offering some hints and tips on the game. Do you want cheats for Mafia Wars? If you […]

Zynga’s Mafia Wars celebrates an anniversary (or How I Lost My Man)

So Zynga recently announced the one year anniversary of Mafia Wars. According to the press release I read: “since its launch in June 2008, Mafia Wars has grown to more than four million daily active users; in the last three months, alone, the game has doubled the number of daily players”.  My man would be […]
