You’ll have to forgive me as it’s possible that over the next 4 or so weeks, I’ll most likely start every post with, “When we were in Florida on vacation…” Just saying it now. When we were in Florida on vacation, we spent a handful of afternoons in the historic part of downtown St. Augustine, […]

Last night we watched Inception. At least I think we did. I might have been asleep actually. Come to think of it, I had the weirdest dreams about dressing up like Leonardo DiCaprio, and I was hanging out with Ellen Page, and we were on a mountain, in some hotel room, about to crash into […]

It’s Oscar night! The red carpet is littered with the rich and famous, dressed to the nine in the finest gowns and tuxes. I look pretty good, too. I’m lounged on my red sofa, wearing some designer (read: tattered) yoga pants from 1997, and my hair is in a most elegant (read: ratty) low bun […]
