Moth Series: Moved to Flickr

Nerd alert! In case you didn’t already know: one of the more studious hobbies I enjoy is photographing and classifying (and hanging out at night getting swarmed by) moths. I decided to clear out my Flickr account and dedicate it wholly to this pursuit. It’s coming along nicely; I’ve got about half of my photos from 2005 thru now edited, identified and posted. There are some really awesome moths! Check them out!

One Minor Setback

I had a great time swimming at the lake last Friday with my bestest friend and our kiddos! But I was really not prepared for the aftermath…

A Morning at the Beach

Worst. Sunburn. Ever. (for me, anyways) I’ve never had to deal much with sunburns. I usually slowly build up a modest base-tan throughout the summer, what with my fierce avoidance of sunlight (hissssss). Apparently my shoulders were not so lucky, this year. Amazingly, no blisters developed. Still, I didn’t even know what to do about it! Luckily a lot of friends and family had much advice to give, and I ended up treating it almost solely with “Original” Noxema cream (thanks again, Aunt Jo!). It helped SO MUCH, it was unbelievable!

Needless to say, this slowed me down a bit over the weekend (booooooo). Today it feels 20-times better; hopefully it will be peeling by the end of the week. Never again will I neglect to apply sunscreen to myself! My kids got off scott-free; Mom was ever-diligent with their sunscreen, applying and reapplying — You’re welcome! It would absolutely break my heart if one of them ended up with something like this!

Zombie Apocalypse: Things I would miss

There are many “luxuries” in life that are taken for granted on a daily basis, but in the event of a zombie apocalypse (I’m just sayin’…) there are certain things that I would especially miss. You know, other than relative peace and calm and safety and not having to splatter brains all day long.

  1. Music. Without electricity, I can’t listen to music. This is why I married a musician–as long as he’s alive and with me and has a guitar, we’re golden.
  2. Sleep. Oh, my precious, precious sleep. Hours and hours of sleep. How can a person be expected to sleep during a zombie apocalypse? Nothing but nightmares.
  3. Medicine. Way-back-when, if a person had a fever, they would die. Nowadays we have Tylenol. How much would it suck to die of a fever when there’s a perfectly good zombie apocalypse going on?
  4. Continue reading

Infinite Repeat

After reading a blog entry over at Wise Craft about house music, I decided to make my own list of songs that I could listen to over and over again repeatedly. Which I have actually done with these songs on multiple occasions over the years. They’re just that good!

To keep the list “short,” and in the interest of “diversity,” I’ve only chosen one song per band/artist, which was really hard to do, as seen in the footnotes for few songs (so I cheated a teensy bit). These are listed alphabetically by artist, because that’s how they came out as I was sifting through Media Player; it seems to add a bit of organized randomness to the whole thing.
