Ciaran cuteness

The redeeming factor to yesterday evening (Graham was away, so I got to pick up Ciaran, bring him home, and keep him busy while I cooked dinner – the key that should have tipped me off to the fact that Ciaran really DID have a tummyache was that he was so flipping cuddly) was this [...]

I’m It

As tagged by TeacherMommy. 1. What are your current obsessions? Not obsessing so much as panicking about flying in July. Obsessing about fat activism, maybe? Also, freaking out that I have no gift for my sister’s birthday this weekend AND haven’t managed to order the thing I was going to get my mom for Mothers’ [...]

Santé

I watched Sicko this weekend; it’s been on my Netflix queue forever, but happened to be on satellite this weekend, so I sat down and watched the last half or so. Although it might seem surprising that a liberal is saying so, I know Michael Moore’s documentaries can have problems. There were factual errors in [...]

Are You There, God?

I am not a particularly religious or spiritual person. Thoughtful, yes. I’m always thinking – there are times when I wish I could just turn off my brain, because it drives me crazy, especially when I get mouse-in-a-jar circular thinking. I don’t think about God as much as you might expect from someone whose parents [...]

On Politics

Not being the raging hot center of the online political blogiverse (bloggiverse?), I haven’t felt like sticking my neck out there for political discussions over the last few months. Yes, I’m uber-liberal, pro-choice, pro-gay-marriage/civil partnership/whatever equal legal rights terminology you want to use…but everyone already knows that! Discussing the election is a lot harder for [...]

A bit of fat activism

A lengthy entry – this is the response I made to someone on my INFJ mailing list who was discussing weight issues.  The bold lines are my original comments, the italicized are his, and then the lines in regular type are my response. It’s a lost cause arguing this with most people but I guess [...]

Thag you very buch

It’s funny how a million zillion little virus bits swarming inside one’s head can bring such misery. I’m at the kleenex-every-sixty-seconds phase of this cold (generously shared with me by my beloved toddler) and the very last place I want to be is at work. Although it’s mild by cold standards and Ciaran was over [...]

Don’t Make Books Into Movies

As much as I love well-made movie adaptations of my favourite books (and I’ll forgive the Lord of the Rings trilogy for deleting Tom Bombadil and making Merry, Pippin, and Gimli into comic relief, just barely), there’s not much that’s worse than a bad film version of a very good book.  This weekend I had [...]

I’ve been tired lately.  Tired in the wish I could lie down for a nap and I’m only just getting up sort of way.  I was not born to be a morning person and no matter how hard I try, I cannot seem to convince my body that falling asleep before 10 PM is a [...]
