MEMO July 31, 2014 TO: All past, present and future burlesque show audience members FROM: Your Friendly Neighborhood Glitterbomb RE: Burlesque shows Hi there! First of all, I can speak for my fellow dancers, as well as our producers and our venue staff, when I say: we are glad you are here/have been here/are thinking of visiting! […]
After the change of scenery in the season opener, we are back with the standard episode we’re used to seeing. There’s a case to be solved and a revelation about one of the characters: Joan Watson. As I stated in last week’s recap, the formula of the show works because of the compelling performance by […]
There are many reasons why I love my husband. He is kind, funny, generous, and always great to be around. For the most part, he always puts others before himself (although there are some exceptions to that one). No matter how I’m feeling, he can usually make me feel if not 100% better, at least […]
For me, buying gifts for my closest friends and sisters is almost as much fun as buying items for the kids on my list.
If you asked me to list my favorite TV shows of all time, Lost would hold one of the first two spots. It usually alternates with The West Wing for the top spot depending on my mood. Like everyone else who watched this show, I was truly obsessed.
I’ve been saying for a while now (mostly to myself but sometimes to future Mr. paperispatient) that I’d like to do more reviews for this column…
Q: My husband and I stopped having sex when I was going through a rough time (yeast infection + depression + recovering from trauma). I needed the break because it got to the point that I was feeling physically ill at just the thought of sex.
The issue of rereading beloved books is yet another one that I didn’t realize was up for debate until I moved in with Mr. McD. He is firmly in the No Rereading camp, and once expressed confusion about why I choose to read certain books over and over when there are plenty of great books […]
Well, if you’re any kind of self-respecting nerd, you know by now that last night’s Community was about Dungeons and Dragons. This was a fun episode, even for a semi-nerd like me who missed the boat on D&D (in my high school, people played Magic: the Gathering. Sorry). At first I was excited because I […]
Happy Friday once again, my dears. Today’s Goodie is for all you bookish nerds out there. I’ve just been made aware of Book-A-Minute, a years-old website that provides short, slighly snarky summaries of classic books. I’m aware that y’all hate clicking through to external websites, but believe me that this is worth the click. Here’s […]
Today we’re going to look at several beautiful libraries, both real and imaginary. One of my greatest joys in this job is thumbing through (the very generous) Creative Commons images on Flickr to find just the right pictures to start the day around here. Here’s to a fantastic Tuesday for all of our readers, with […]
If you’re anything like me, you gravitate toward websites/blogs and news outlets that lean liberal, and more important, lean feminist. But you also have interests and hobbies that are unrelated to politics, and sometimes you have to switch your feminist radar to “standby” when you wade into other websites.
Because we’re nerds, and we love alliteration. Did you know”¦
