Open Letter to Nicky of We Work For Cheese on her Open Letter to Margaret of Nanny Goats In Panties®
Dear Nicky, I have been feeling a little un Christmasy lately because I really don't like the holidays and all the crap that comes with them. I have been so busy that I haven't had time to read all my favorite blogs and leave comments. I'm upset with myself because I feel as if I have let my friends down by not visiting their blogs
I was recently approached by one of the marketing people from GlassesUSA.com who asked me if I would like to review a pair of their glasses. As luck would have it I had just scheduled an eye exam so I was pretty thrilled to be asked to review an online glasses shop. I was given a coupon code and was actually able to purchase two
Back in 1987, Howard Mohr wrote a funny little book that taught non natives of Minnesota how to talk like us. Howard Mohr's How To Talk Minnesotan: A Visitor's Guide was a bestseller here in the land of 10,000 lakes, though no one would ever admit to actually purchasing the book. We all borrowed it from someone who was from out of town.
Actually it is the heat too. It's been dreadfully hot and humid here and I really don't like the heat very much.

This is what I woke up to this morning. I'm getting really sick of snow. I know I live in Minnesota and it's a snowy place but even we shouldn't be getting snow in late April. The latest date I can recall it snowing in Minnesota is May 7th. I think it was 1997 because I went to a John Cougar Mellencamp concert that night
I don't know about you but I have been riveted to the TV waiting for a resolution to the budget stalemate and whether or not the government will shut down. According to a poll on MSNBC 67% or respondents think the government will shut down. And each side is pointing fingers at the other side. So what happens if they don't reach an agreement? What
Jonathan Yuhas, my local weatherman at Kare11, said this morning* that by the end of the week we could see some tulips poking through the ground. I don't think so. Temps aren't supposed to be higher than the lower 50s with most nights still reaching the 30s. It was 17 F this morning. I know a lot of you people in the rest of the
The great William Shakespeare said those very words a long time ago and today they ring oh so true. It all started out well enough. Last December, I don't remember where, I mentioned that I really wanted a Chia Pet. I had never had one and while they are easy enough to get they seemed rather extravagant and silly for me to buy for myself.
