Meme lover right here, folks….

A short filler post, while I continue to pack ALL THE THINGS in this place: Internet memes have exploded in popularity over the Net in the last several years; some are incredibly obscure, and some only relate to a certain demographic, gender, orientation, political stance, interest in a cultural “type”, such as love of a…

I REGRET NOTHING.

So sorry I’ve been away from blogging for so long (ok, so I *do* regret that…), but I have a super-good reason; we went a little crazy and bought our Very First House! These last two months have been an absolute whirlwind of house showings and offers and more paperwork than I could have EVER…

Recipe Post: Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

It was Miss Kitty’s birthday recently, and she asked me to make a cake for her birthday party, which was a Pathfinder party at our place, hosted by my hubby (her request, I swear!). We started a new campaign and brought some new friends to be part of our RPG-of-awesomeness, and a great time was…

Geekery: Gimme ALL THE SUPERHEROES!

I came across this lovely infographic today that lists nearly all of the expected upcoming superhero movies for the next 4-5 years! This gives me a great thrill, as, while I enjoy watching *nearly* all of these movie franchises (not a fan of rebooted Spiderman, but that’s my ish…), I have never been up to…

Travelscapes: TempleCon 2015 – Oh What a Time We Had…

I’ve had a challenging time trying to explain to non-attendees just exactly what TempleCon is, and what it’s about. Trying to come up with a short, pithy response has been difficult, as there is so much to say! The blurb below, paraphrased from the Providence Journal’s article on TempleCon, I think says it best: “Founded…

Travelscapes: TempleCon 2015 – One more sleep…!

Sorry for being MIA for the last little while; as mentioned in my previous post, the hubster, some good friends and I are heading to a great little Gaming and Steampunk convention very soon! Since my last post, I’ve been feverishly working on my wardrobe for this event, and even though our departure is now…

Travelscapes: TempleCon 2015 is a GO!

Ok, I admit it. For several years of our relationship, when it was just the Hubster (then the BoyToy) and me, we had been getting old. I don’t mean chronological age, mind you — because, well DUHHH — but more like we were getting a little too set in our ways, stuffy, and boring. Rut…

Oh Canada!

Canada Is Really Big – Arrogant Worms Canada is weird. I mean, I love my country with all my heart, and never become more patriotic when I’m away from it, but I’ve come to understand that Canada is an odd little duckie in the eyes of the world, and many people seem to think that…

Algonquin Park, Here We Come!

Don’t get me wrong, I really like my new job, and all of the potential I can see for my career advancement. My boss likes me (I think…hard to tell with women…), and I like her, and my colleagues are super-golden awesomesauce and great fun to boot. But man, am I ever exhausted. I work…

Geekery: High Command Collectible Card Game

I learned a new game this evening at our favourite game store, Hobby Kingdom, in Burlington, Ontario! High Command, a collectible card game from Privateer Press (PP), was just released in early October of this year, and our local PP Press Ganger, Chris, was on hand at the store today to demo the Hordes version…
