2011 Review

December 23, 2011 by Maire in Whimsy / 0 Comments

I guess it’s due to the closing of the year, but this week’s Friday Five is all about Xmas and New Years. Due to the nature of the questions, I’m going to talk briefly about work. You may notice that it usually isn’t a topic I bring up. Work has, for the most part over […]

I’m not going to say that I have all my Christmas knitting done, because the moment I say that is the moment that someone in the family tells me five different things that they want me to knit that would make them the happiest person on the face of the earth. That said, I’ve done […]

Of Electric Sheep

I was going to talk about a movie for my Movie Monday, but then I was reminded of his lovely little video on Youtube. As a knitter, an art-college dropout, and a person who works in tech, I have to admit that this tickles my funnybone on many different levels. It’s an oldie, so don’t […]

Toppings!

December 9, 2011 by Maire in Whimsy / 2 Comments

This week’s Friday Five is about food. Figures that they would do this, with Christmas coming up and all the foodness that will be coming. What’s your favorite ice cream topping? I really don’t have a favourite topping for my ice-cream. When I was a kid, we’d have canned peaches or pineapple, and the juice […]

We’re getting to that part of the year.  The part of the year when the snow starts flying. We had enough snow fall this past week, that we were actually wistfully discussing the merits of small snowblowers. No, we’re not planning on getting one, but a girl can dream, right? Though, knowing our luck, we’d […]

Movie Monday: Tremors!

Movie Monday: Tremors!

I love movies.  I love movies that I can watch while I’m knitting.  Obviously, this leaves out most subtitles, so unless it’s a French flick (which I can still understand, for the most part), most Foreign Films are off the menu. What I love love love, though, are those go-to movies that I’ve seen zillions […]

Friday Five: Brrrr!

Friday Five: Brrrr!

December 2, 2011 by Maire in Whimsy / 0 Comments

Today’s Friday Five has to do with how cold it’s starting to get all over the place.  Considering it’s now December, I guess it’s appropriate : 1. What’s your favorite thing about cold weather?   I, obviously, have to vote on the side of knittables. I like to wear scarves and mittens, warm woolen socks. […]

Battle of the Fitness Apps!

I’ve been meaning to blog about this one for awhile, but I have this tendency to get sidetracked easily. A little while ago, my brother recommended I check out a diet app that he was using to track his food and exercise. I can’t fault him for this, as I think that’s a great idea. […]

How to mess with a kitty’s mind

How to mess with a kitty’s mind

November 9, 2011 by Maire in Whimsy / 0 Comments

Kitty-cats don’t like it when their schedules change. This one particularly doesn’t like the fact that the time change means her feeding schedule has changed. She’s gotten particularly vocal about it, in fact, and prone to wandering between the closed pantry and her bowls. She’s also developed this whole weird glowy-eye thing that makes me […]

PumpkinFest

Last year we left off getting a pumpkin until the last minute. And then we couldn’t find one if our lives depended on it, and even the faux Pumpkins at Michael’s Crafts were gone, and I was a very sad lady. Why? Because I like to carve pumpkins. To the point where, after gutting the […]
