Squeezing the Life out of 2006

Lest anyone worry that I might spend the last few days of the year in a lazy haze of Xbox 360, TiVo and Christmas cookies, I’ve reassured myself that my calendar remains quite jam-packed and I will continue to be a busy bee on into 2007.

Sometime today, to Kate’s dismay, Rosie goes home. In [...]

The information shuffle

Marc came over and spent a good four hours using his formerly-professional IT mojo to help me get the Atomic Brain back online. I only had to bribe him with ABBRUZZESE LAMB AND RED PEPPER RAGU WITH PENNE and some garlic bread! When a guy who used to fix people’s computers for a living keeps [...]

Online Shopping

As one who celebrates secular Christmas, it’s all about Santa, about gifts, about being with and doing for my friends and family. I love having the chance to give, for the same reasons that I enjoy cooking for people. My parents and grandparents send money for birthdays and kids and cousins don’t exchange birthday presents [...]

I need a new hobby
