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…

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…

Honestly…

…what am I supposed to do with these two hooligans? The Hubster and Miss Kitty certainly have quite the affinity for one another; like the little sister George never had, and the big brother Kitty never wanted (haha), these two get along like graham crackers and chocolate…which I suppose makes me the marshmallow that glues…

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…

The Reason Why We Can’t Have Nice Things.

Yay for the first post of 2015!!! Thought I’d step briefly back from food posting and give you a silly little update on what’s going on lately in the BirdHouse. So…I’ve been away from home for the last couple of months, dealing with some family stuff. The Hubster’s totally got my back on this; he…

A Very Grumpy Cat Christmas to you all!

In the absence of a real post here (lots of family stuff going on right now!), I’m sending you lovely Christmas-related memes, all to do with my favourite Scrooge, Grumpy Cat! I promise that later this month I’m going to be writing about tons of fun Christmas baking, crafts, and all sorts of other awesomeness!…

Movember!

My nephew is the sweetest boy ever; I simply adore him! Very small children are such little characters, and my nephew is no different. The photos above show his 2nd birthday party where he is sung the Happy Birthday song and is expected to blow out the candles, but is unsure of both the fuss…

Knitting Project Confidential

“Hello, my name is Alicia and I am a knit-oholic.” …ok, that may not actually be an official addiction, or even a real word, but I certainly am doing my best to stretch my ability to complete a knitting project to the breaking point! I’ve just bought more yarn today for my ever-growing collection. ..after…

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…

An amusing little vignette…

So, my hub and I have been hosting a good friend in our spare room for the last few weeks until she heads out on her Grand Summertime Adventure. No biggie. She left yesterday evening before I got home from work. Again, no probs. This morning, my husband grumpily asks me, “Where’s my toothbrush?” ……

This is so…I don’t even…

The Game of Thrones Intro. … Sung by screaming goats. … I simply cannot love this more than I already do. … You are welcome, Internets.
