They’re Warmer on the Inside

They’re Warmer on the Inside

I’ve been wanting “TARDIS mittens” for awhile now.  I looked online and found mittens decorated as Tardises (Tardi?), and mittens decorated with Tardises (what is the plural on that, anyhow?). I just didn’t find what I was looking for.  There was one front-runner, but I quickly found myself ripping it back and starting all over […]

Ten on Tuesday: The Weekend

Ten on Tuesday: The Weekend

September 18, 2012 by Maire in Whimsy / 0 Comments

I love the weekend. Well…I guess I should specify that as “days off”. As I generally work shifts, I don’t always get a traditional weekend, where the work week ends by 5pm on Friday afternoon and starts again by 9am on Monday. Even so, today’s Tuesday Ten is all about favourite things to do on […]

Ten on Tuesday: For the Love of September

Ten on Tuesday: For the Love of September

September 4, 2012 by Maire in Whimsy / 7 Comments

Today’s Ten on Tuesday is all about September. To be exact, the ten things you love about September. Kids are going back to school Not so much an issue for the Husbeast and I since we don’t have children, but it does mean that for some things, the neighbourhood is quieter. When you work shifts […]

Ten on Tuesday: TV!

Ten on Tuesday: TV!

August 14, 2012 by Maire in Whimsy / 2 Comments

It’s time for the Ten on Tuesday yet again!  This time the subject is one I can get behind…’Ten TV shows from your Childhood”.  As a member of the very first generation to have that much exposure to TV during early development, this one should be a breeze. I grew up mainly in Ontario, where […]

Apparently this week’s Ten on Tuesday is “Favourite Ways to Eat Tomatoes“. Considering I’m not a vegetarian (and thus have a certain kind of “veggie-fu”), this may be limited.  Why? 1. Because I don’t drink Tomato juice. So you won’t catch me eating them that way. 2. And I tend to limit my bread, so […]

In which I prove I have a *little* colour-sense…

There’s an old joke that men see the world in basic colours, and that women specialize.  That is to say, guys see pink, green and blue, and women see puce, chartreuse and teal. Full disclosure here…my whole freakin’ family went to art college, so if one of us doesn’t know what puce, chartreuse and teal […]

Friday Five: Fading

Friday Five: Fading

July 20, 2012 by Maire in Whimsy / 0 Comments

It’s been awhile since I did one of these… Today’s Friday Five is all about Fading. What’s something in your possession whose color has obviously faded? — numerous pairs of socks. Particularly the Koigu handpaints. I absolutely love the colours, but they fade so quickly! And, unfortunately, this yarn tends to wear thin quickly, so […]

Honestly, does this look like food to you? I sometimes joke that I’m an “amateur nutritionist”. I haven’t gone to school to attain the college credentials, and I’m still nowhere near my ideal goal weight, but I’ve done a heck of a lot of reading. Reading, watching videos from conferences, documentaries on diet (yes, even […]

Reinventing the Wheel

Once in a while I get this rush of productivity and glee, and think to myself that what I’m doing is so great and original…and then I find out that someone got there before me. We were watching some Dr. Who (still getting caught up on the past few years, so…no spoilers!) and I remembered […]
