Take Your Turkey and Stuff It: Four Thanksgiving Foods that Should Be Banned

So I fell off the NaBloPoMo horse for a few days. Big surprise there. Seriously, the fact that I’ve managed to log in more than three times this entire month is nothing short of miraculous and I owe it all to the copious amounts of coffee I’ve been drinking. If you smell something off, it’s […]

Have a Nostalgic, Sepia-Tinted Christmas

Welcome to the very first Remember the Time Christmas party, filled with fruitcakes no one is actually going to eat, pervy drunk uncles, and White Elephant gift exchanges! Join Kelly and me as we walk down memory lane and remember some fond past holidays with our beloved Rememberers. Don’t forget to pick up a crushed candy […]

Get comfortable. This is a long one.

I would love nothing more than to be able to have a schedule when it comes to blogging. In my glory days (read: when I first started blogging and this place was all mine because no one was reading it and therefore filters and quality control didn’t really exist. Yeah, maybe “glory” is a little […]

Mockingbird, DO!: A Holiday Giveaway

So, I may have mentioned this one or twenty times, but the people I have met through this glorious blogging adventure are one of the big reasons why I continually log in and keep banging out these posts. Depending on how you feel about me, this may be a good thing or a bad thing. […]

RTT: Halloween Is For Showing Off

Welcome to this week’s installment of Remember the Time! Since it’s Halloween and we are big fans of logic, this week’s theme is…Halloween. Have at it, kiddos!  ♥ The main purpose of Halloween, if you don’t already know, is for parents to show off. So the purpose of today’s post is to fill my smug […]

Here’s a piece of paper with Batman on it. I mean, I love you.

I played the childhood game well. I was an active participant in all the fun that could possibly be had. I finger painted with pudding. I sang “I’m A Little Teapot” and did all the motions. I hunted for eggs like a boss. I ate my Happy Meal and I liked it. I bought it […]

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 […]

The Other Side: Notes on the Ninth Month

Even though we all know that 40 weeks actually equals ten months rather than nine (or at least those of us who have actually been pregnant know this, as that last month is probably the most miserable making us acutely aware of the passage of time), I can’t help but think that Miss C has […]

General Announcements

Apparently nowadays most schools have morning and afternoon announcements that come on over the school’s own TV channel. I guess this is integral to the professional development of aspiring TV anchors everywhere. All we need are more pundits to talk about everything and nothing all at once on CNN, so the elementary school is the […]

I said I wouldn’t blog on Christmas.

But here I am. I think there was something about driving down Park and slowing when I approached Holy Rosary because the extra Christmas Eve traffic and their street parking required it. The gleaming golden doors caught my eye the way they always do when I’m in Memphis. A family made their way through the doors […]
