I had a hard time on Friday concentrating on work, while ideas were percolating about adapting some Billy Joel lyrics to fit our new reality. Once the lyrics had coalesced into a version I was happy with, I couldn't just leave it unsung -- I had to find a karaoke video of the original song … Continue reading What I Did When I Was Supposed to Be Working on Friday
Hard to believe that it was only two weeks ago that I took my little trip, but I'm really glad I had that chance to recharge my batteries, however briefly. Came back to the same crazy amount of work, plus more because of coronavirus. You see, in addition to my other responsibilities, I am also … Continue reading Life in the Time of Coronavirus
Home again. I was greeted by the dog, who seems to only love me for the treats I give. He runs to get in front of me, herding me, hoping for something, anything. My younger son tells me that we need to do something ASAP about the wifi in his room and that he has … Continue reading The Escape: Home, Books, Movies, Etc.
I had a nice, long lie-in this morning, trying not to feel guilty, like I should be up and doing something. After I eventually roused myself and got ready for the day, I enjoyed my coffee and a simple breakfast in my room. I always travel with the dark roast coffee I like and the … Continue reading The Escape: Day 2

The knock on the door came at last. Quickly, she jumped up from the couch where she’d been waiting impatiently. Checking herself in the mirror, she tried not to notice the newest lines on her face, and she pinched her cheeks hoping to give herself a bit of colour. She took a deep breath and … Continue reading The Real Story?
**NO SPOILERS** The anticipation is over... Thursday and Friday evening, I binge-watched Netflix's The Stranger starring Richard Armitage. What a relief to find that the 8-episode series is actually good! The Stranger is based on Harlan Coben's book of the same name. Red Production Company, Coben, and Danny Brocklehurst have collaborated on two previous series, but … Continue reading Finally… A Good On-Screen Project!
No power and around two feet of snow! What happened to my mild, green Vancouver?! Worst of it is... I can't keep binge-watching my House MD marathon!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone! It's been two months since my last post, as work and life got in the way of my blogging. Hope everyone is doing well! I've been playing again with some of the templates in Photo Lab, making myself giggle by dropping in some of the Richard pics on my phone. … Continue reading Christmas Gifs, Pics, and Songs
**CAUTION: FANGIRL ANGST AHEAD!!** I was distracted all day Tuesday, thinking about those pictures of Richard Armitage at last night's charity event, the Golden Heart Awards, in New York City. Guylty (with some sourcing from Kate) posted the pictures yesterday and I've posted them again below -- plus an additional picture from the event. While spending … Continue reading Another Charity Pic and Fangirl Angst
