In April 2009, Andrew and I escaped the cold and rain of Stavanger and spent ten days in Greece.
One of my favorite trips ever.

I’m not sure why, but I have long been kinda obsessed with subway maps, stations, stories, etc.
I am making one for each city I’ve lived in and haven’t worked on them in way too long. Trying to get back on it this weekend. Of course, I also have a master plan on how I’m going to display them once finished…
Local readers — got any ideas for stops?!?

My face was completely exhausted by the end of the night from all the crazy disgusted faces it was making…this show is CRAZY. What I find fascinating is how it takes itself so seriously, yet at the same time it is winks at the audience by exploiting complete crazyheads who are starved for media attention.
I need to get a grip and read a book. Damn.

I love looking at photo albums. My parents weren’t big picture takers when I was growing up, but we did have four big, 1980s style photo albums that I would sit with for hours. Photos are now so integrated into daily life that I fear the album is long gone. Instead of sitting down with an album, I find myself every once and awhile going through folders on the computer to look at photos…different , but not necessarily any less satisfying.
I recently discovered a photo editing app for iPad called Snapseed–uh-mazing.
I have yet to share much about our time living in Norway, so I thought I would share a few of my favorite photos from that year:
there is a chance Andrew might get to go to Norway sometime soon for work–hoping I might get to tag along!

In a recent episode of NPR’s Pop Culture Happy Hour, the gang discussed their favorite guilty pleasures and if there even needs to be such a category. Linda Holmes argued that a pleasure (whenever pop culture is concerned) should never be guilty. So, in other words, if you enjoy it–then it’s good!
While I can see her point, there are definitely many things I like and enjoy that are just plain unnecessary and somewhat destructive.
my guilty pleasures of 2011–judge away! I can take it!
I’m feel so ashamed I watch this that I almost didn’t list it. wow.
frozen wafer dough that you bake at home: cheesy and buttery and dangerous.
enjoyable in the car, in the kitchen, while running, while showering, etc.
Unique and authentic? I don’t think so. Affordable? Yes, because they are owned by Wal-Mart
I may or may not break this out regardless if I have a cold…
cheese grits, which we have as a side dish way too often. Photo courtesy of The Nifty Foodie
