Another weekend is gone, and we’re that much closer to Christmas. No, I’m not much readier than I was this time last week. I did my Christmas baking shopping – icing sugar, coconut, etc. and got that out of the way yesterday. I do a sleighful of baking – lots […]

Weekend Roundup

Not much to say today – I just finished my line edits for Private Property. I need to study more about American hyphenation standards – apparently they are different from Canadian/British standards. Other than that it’s all good and Private Property is one step closer to publication. Hmm, I had […]

Dash it all

Holiday Hell is up to day 10 already. Today over on Nice Mommy-Evil Editor, Angela James is offering books by Jaci Burton, Eve Vaughn, Ann Cory, Melani Blazer, Rose Marie Wolf, Kinley MacGregor (aka Sherrilyn Kenyon), Lora Leigh, Jan Colley and Roxanne St. Clair. The challenge for today is to […]

Gizmo Guy bought another computer last night (This makes what? #10 or 11?) It’s another Mac – this time a G4 Desktop with a HUGE – and I’m talking 70 pound/30 kilogram – professional quality LaCie Electron Blue 19 inch monitor. It used to belong to a graphic artist who […]

Akk, it’s the eighth of December already! Tree’s up at least, most of the decorations too, although the boxes are still strewn around the living and family rooms. Guitar Hero decided to go all out this year with the decorating – we have bows on all the light fixtures, pine […]

Christmas Factory explosion

A few years back, I was Christmas shopping for my sister and parents. Since they’re hard to shop for, I decided to buy a decidedly unglamorous present. I bought them each a carbon monoxide detector (I think I also bought them smoke alarms too – this was before Ontario law […]

An Unglamorous Present

Ever since I posted that “Where in the Hell is Matt” video back on Monday, I’ve had the song playing in my head. It’s downloadable to those in the States through Amazon for $1.98 – or .99, I see it for two prices, not sure what the difference is. Unfortunately […]

Wow, it’s so cool to look over on my sidebar and see TWO books there. *basking* All right, I’m back now. There’s lots of other news going on too … For instance, there will be a third cover going up on my sidebar within the next couple of weeks but […]

Holiday Goodies of the Non-Fattening Kind

Did you guys hear me ‘squeeing’ on Monday afternoon? I’m surprised if you didn’t. After all, you danced along with me and Matt. (Did you realize that was a clue? That was my extra-special happy dance.) Curly heard me all the way down in the basement. Even Marley heard me […]

Break out the Bubbly!

I’ve been playing with my blog listing because I’d received a complaint that my page was loading slowly while blogger went out to get YOUR posts for MY list. Yeah, so not going to lose my 2 faithful readers because of that. Do you guys use that bloglist anyway? Does […]

Tis the Season … to Grumble

Sheesh, most days I can’t think of anything to post, and this week I keep double posting. Anyway, I thought this was important enough to generate that ‘extra’ post for today. According to this article on the Washington Post “Security Fix” blog, Apple has announced that they recommended Mac users […]

Apples no longer virus-free?

So much to do, so little time. Gee, where have I heard that before? Oh, yeah, everywhere! I am not ready for Christmas. I like to have the house clean before we drag out the decorations. Last week I decided to clean the carpets after I’d vacuumed and discovered the […]

There’s not enough hours in a day …
