It may come as a surprise, but self-help books aren't usually my thing. With all my neurosis and anxiety issues, you might think I would have my own little reading nook in the self-help aisle at the library or that people would just leave them on my doorstep, but not so much. Because why read … Continue reading Book It: Self-Help Vol. 1
Fair warning: This post is entirely about wrestling, so I understand if you want to skip this one. I swear the next post will be about something funny Brody did or a book that might change your life. But today, it's Royal Rumble Sunday. Everything is about wrestling today. Also, I've added some results, so … Continue reading Rumble Time
It took everything I had not to title this post Snow Day 2: Electric Boogaloo, but I didn't, because... I don't know... maturity? Yeah, probably not. So, Snow Day 1 was lovely. It was a nice little midweek vacation day surprise meant for reading and relaxing. Just enough snow to keep you inside, but nothing … Continue reading Snow Day 2 = Booze Day
Since my husband changed career paths a while back and decided to go the teaching route and our 10-year-old son is, well, a 10-year-old, snow days are a hot commodity around the McGill household. And nothing goes better with snow days than cookies.

So, this week (the one we just got done with, not the upcoming one, or not yet) has felt like a bit of a downer. And a lot of blah. The weather finally got all wintry on us. People that inspired people, namely David Bowie and Alan Rickman (or apparently Snape to some of you, I … Continue reading A case of the blahs…
When I wrote my little intro a month or so ago, I said to expect wrestling talk, and now that the Royal Rumble (!!!) is less than two weeks away, here goes. Don't worry, this whole post isn't going to be my Rumble predictions (mostly because who the hell knows, it's a little bananas this year) or … Continue reading Wrestling stuff, as promised!
I absolutely realize that I'm posting an ice cream recipe on a day when the high is 26 degrees and we've just had our first snow of the winter, but it's hot chocolate ice cream, so it kind of works, right? Besides, it's Kentucky and will probably be 70 by Wednesday and you'll be … Continue reading Ice cream! Yes, ice cream.
So far this year, I've found myself with a downright surly disposition. There's no particular reason for it other than about a million little annoying things, none of which should have me in a bad mood for more than five minutes, but here we are anyway. Despite my wealth of teenage misery experience (I was called Daria … Continue reading Music for a better mood…
Just to clarify right off the bat, I do not have any personal pan pizza coupons available should you happen to read anything I suggest. However, if you do crack open (or download, whatever the kids are doing these days) a book I mention on here, we can totally go get pizza and talk about … Continue reading Book It
