Man, have I been slacking. Well, okay, so that’s not the kind of news you wake your significant other up for. Truth is, the idea that I’ve been slacking about something is roughly akin to getting all hyper and jumping up-and-down while screaming because, *gasp* the tide is getting higher! Get it, because the tide … Continue reading About Time For A Kick In The Pants
Maybe last night wasn't Thursday, my traditional cookie baking night, but since the do-over fairy let me down yesterday, I kicked customary to the curb and made a batch of oatmeal chocolate chips anyway. As it turns out, in respectable golf (which I admittedly have little experience with), you only get to take a mulligan … Continue reading The Difference Between Golf And Baking
Wednesday got off to a rough start. Because Zeus and Poseidon were apparently attempting to settle a bet via what I can only assume was a raucous bowling match in the heavens above my house last night, I found myself conspicuously not asleep at 2:30 this morning. As a result, I slept through my alarm … Continue reading Late Night Storms And Wednesday Morning Mulligans
[Puddin’s Note: Remember when I wouldn’t shut up about FREE AGENT, a book by friend and author J.C. Nelson that I couldn’t put down? Well, I enjoyed the thing so much, I jumped at the chance to have him throw a guest post together for us. So rather than subject you to my my usual … Continue reading The Most Annoying Fairytale Creatures, A Guest Post By Author J. C. Nelson

I know it seems … Continue reading The Sounds Of Silence
When I first heard the news—or more accurately, read about it from a barrage of tweets in the few moments after dinner when I had intended to merely glance at twitter before seeing to bath time—it kind of swept over me like a hot, summer gust. Something to be recognized and noted in a kind … Continue reading Well, Dammit. Rest In Peace, Mr. Williams. And Thank You.
I seem to recall promising that I would write all about the awesome adventures we had on our recent family vacation and post it today. But, um, mistakes were made. As it turns out, much as with mice and other furry, cute-only-when-animated rodents, the best laid plans of Puddin are easily waylaid by a sudden … Continue reading When It Comes To Cookies, I Have No Excuse
I shaved this morning. Normally, of course, that would range on the Notable Activities list somewhere between “Clipped My Nails” and “Filled The Washer Fluid”. It ain’t exactly compelling news to start a post with, is what I’m saying. Believe it not, though, it actually is kind of somewhat notable today—if only today—because I spent … Continue reading What I Saw On My Summer Vacation
