Some of you may know that I like to enjoy my attic as if it were a sauna (it's hot enough). I can usually use my tablet for about a half hour before it gets too hot to think (it, not me- I thrive in my sweat box, just don't ask me math). I've been… Continue reading Things I have missed because I haven’t had time to sit in my attic
Time for a mid-month funny. And this is why I don't have cable or watch TV during the day (well besides the fact that I work). Every other ad looks like this:

My bank has thrown transmedia storytelling in the mix. Now, that’s something I’m willing to pro-actively engage with.” “That subject line totally… Continue reading Because some days you just need to laugh
