Still caffeine free.  Still alive.  Daniel is still alive.  My brain was angry with me from Saturday afternoon through yesterday afternoon, but I think the worst was over once I hit the 48-hour mark.  I couldn’t find any reputable sources for how long it takes to work the magic fairy dust out of your system, but the disputable ones […]

I hadn’t been able to do any laundry since last Thursday, and last night things were getting dicey.  Like, “Do underwear become clean when you turn them inside out?” dicey.  The hot water pipes for our building needed to be replaced, which was going to expose some asbestos, which meant we weren’t allowed in the […]

School days

by Chelsea Myers on January 22, 2012

Daniel and I had a good time visiting the Wingra School yesterday.  Both of us are the product of pretty good but very traditional public schools, so learning cursive through personal exploration while reclining in the classroom loft was not part of either of our formative years.  Although they day we send any child to […]

Kid stuff

by Chelsea Myers on January 21, 2012

Credit So I started reading The Hunger Games a few days ago, and I’m totally into it.  Who knew the whole teen dystopian adventure romance genre could be so entertaining?  I’d consider seeing the movie when it comes out on Netflix. I think it’s funny that, because as a rule people in high school are weird […]

Outside is about the same temperature as your freezer. Cold registers as pain. Any exposed skin burns. You will do ANYTHING not to be outside. Your car doesn’t want to start. The steering wheel is still an ice cube even though the heater has been on for 15 minutes. Locks are tough to open and […]

Credit More than 1 million signatures were collected for the recall Walker effort.  Obviously there are a few “Santa Claus” and “Mickey Mouse” and duplicates that will have to be tossed out, but it well surpasses the number needed to force the recall and even the dream goal of 700,000. We got our first pro-Walker […]

Don’t speak

by Chelsea Myers on January 17, 2012

More words/prhases I’d reject from the English language: BRO-XYZUsed to describe anything related to young men of questionable repute.  Bro-tastic, cool story bro, bro fist bump, brommunity.   Credit (I think) FEEL THE XYZ-MENTUM Used to describe something (usually a politician) that’s increasing in popularity.  Do you feel the Rom-mentum?  Nope.  Sure don’t. WE’RE PREGNANTOnly one of […]
