Reacting to Reactions

Big news on the social media front, folks! In case you haven’t heard, yesterday Facebook introduced its highly anticipated Reactions. In a status update on his own page, Mark Zuckerberg described Reactions as “the new Like button with more ways to express yourself.” This is great news to me, at least, because I’ve always felt that the roughly 6,500 […]

Let’s celebrate in the best way that I know.

So it’s been a good week. October came and I promptly made about a dozen loaves of pumpkin bread because it is written in the Book of Pin that once fall officially hits, you have to cease with the zucchini bread and transition immediately to pumpkin bread or you will surely have your badge of […]

Let’s all hold hands and sing Kumbaya.

This is the post where I bask in the glory of the Internet and its ability to transmit all the says I say around the globe. Remember awhile ago when I begged you to further inflate my oft-pregnant ego and “like” the page on Facebook? Remember how you thought to yourself, “Wow, I never thought […]

I should probably write a blog.

I have a few extra minutes. I’ll write a blog post. *Logs into WordPress.* I should check out Freshly Pressed. It’s been a few days. Anything good? HEY! My blogging friend has been FP’d! I should read what they wrote. *Reads post. Feels dumb because overlooked it when first saw it in reader several days […]

Playing Nice in the Blogosphere

Last night I was reading one of my favorite blogs, which I don’t get around to visiting too often because it’s so good that I need to allot at least an hour to just to catch up. With 10,000+ active followers, it’s one of the big blogs where the comments are usually as funny and […]

Birthday Wins

Yesterday was my birthday. You know this if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook because I let you know in the form of many, many notifications. What can I say? I’m thorough. I haven’t always been a fan of birthdays. The getting older part doesn’t really bother me at all because I am eternally […]


There are a lot of things I could say about Facebook. I could talk about how people love it as fervently as they hate it. I could talk about how it brings us together and tears us apart. I could talk about how conflicted I am over someeecards. But today, I will save you all […]

Forgetful Jones, You Are Not Forgotten

Awhile back I saw this image macro floating around on the Intertron: Aside from the fact that the comparison of Mitt Romney to Guy Smiley seems a tad bit forced, this picture bummed me out. It reminded me that there was a time when Guy Smiley – a character from the Sesame Street of my […]


So, I have a Twitter account. As with most things technological, it took me awhile to get one. I got in on Facebook a couple of years after I first heard it existed and I started a blog about eight years after hearing about “online web logs”. Of course, I signed up for Google+ pretty […]

Things I’d Like to Retire

There have lately been a few things that I would kindly like to be taken out to pasture. Here we go: 1. Mom Jokes It’s Target, not “Tar-jey.” No one thinks you’re French. No one thinks you’re clever. 2. Obsession with bacon I think the awesomeness of bacon is pretty evident. Ron Swanson put that one […]
