Week-in-a-Post

I haven’t baked in about 2 weeks due to having leftover birthday cake from my mom’s birthday last weekend. I was trying to be reasonable and eat that before I made much else. I have so many apples still. I must crumble. Soon. But – I did do a lot of other neat stuff this…

How I Relate Real Life to Gaming

Over the course of my 26 years on this earth, there are several games that I have played that I imagine happening in my real life. I’ve also started using gaming metaphors for my daily life. UI’s are leaking into my brain when I close my eyes, it’s a designers virtual reality dream. Basically my…

Mug Stories

While I was making my tea the other night, I thought about how most people I know have an excess supply of mugs – but would never really want to get rid of any. I imagine goodwill sees a good amount of mugs with random company logos on them and novelty mugs shaped like an…

Gaming Bars and Me

When I turned 21 in my third year of college, my world opened up for some unsuspecting reasons. Not only could I enjoy alcoholic beverages legally, because the goodie-two-shoes in me would not allow this to happen prior to that fateful day (minus one or two occurrences), but I could peruse “package stores” as they are…

I Might Be Weird on the Internet

Felicia Day. Resident Internet nerd queen, NYT best selling author, accidental entrepreneur with a 4.0 and the fabulous actress who has been kissed by fire. Also my hero/spirit animal. I’ve been admiring Felicia Day going on 3 years now, and I’m way late to the bandwagon. I somehow missed the initial blow up of “The…

Podcast Spotlight: Beer with Geeks

I’ve owned a house for over a year now (I still don’t know who let that happen) and somehow with being a grown up, I learned how to listen to these things called “Podcasts.” Maybe it’s because I have a commute now, maybe it’s because I’ll be outside for 2 hours doing yardwork and would…

Apple Flights

Typically when one hears about a “flight” of something, it’s beer. I don’t like beer (gasp!) and I always wished I did because the idea of getting a flight was just too cool for school. Not to mention the sweet sweet packaging which you will be seeing some of soon on this blog! Last Sunday we…

The time has come…

The Walrus said, to talk of many things… Since my 21st birthday, I’ve been blogging about my baking over on tumblr. My blog started as an outlet for me to practice photography and post my excessive pictures of cupcakes without driving my facebook feed crazy. At some point, I realized that I could be sharing…

Weekend Roundup

This Weekend I… Finished reading the Scott Pilgrim series. So adorable. Highly recommend. There are enough interesting differences between the six graphic novels and the movie that you’ll want to love both a whole lot if you don’t already. Kim Pine is my jam. Made some Nutella cookies I mean… what kind of weekend would…
