My xanga has not worked properly for two weeks today, and Chris is ignoring my e-mails. You know, the letter Chris sent me (three times — the identical e-mail) seemed so friendly and understanding that I thought we could be friends, but apparently not.An anonymous commenter on my chatterbox said that xanga was proprietarty. I […]

I finished reading Janet Evanovich’s One for the Money. It was well written, with interesting characters, but it was just too violent for me. I had to skip through some of it, and will not read more in the series. Instead, I have moved on to Richard Feynman’s The Pleasure of Finding Things Out. LikeWowMom […]

I got good news from the Filth-O-Meter. I cannot link, since xanga hates me, but you can visit them by cutting and pasting this: learned about this from Creating Text(iles), who likes this British TV show. At their website, you can take a quiz called the “Filth-O-Meter,” which is such a good name for a […]

In order to give myself courage for tearing out and re-sewing my bad quilt squares, I have been reading Quilts from the Quiltmaker’s Gift and More Quilts from the Quiltmaker’s Gift. The Quiltmaker’s Gift is a children’s book. It is not a favorite of mine because it is, in a word I learned from Feebeeglee, […]

The Poster Queen has alerted me that my xanga now takes up more than the width of the screen, and it sure enough does. I hope this means that the mysterious Chris is trying really hard to fix my xanga. I also hope that my husband will try really hard to fix my car. I […]

The bad squares on the quilt, O puzzle fans, were numbers 9, 15, 17, and 21. I will be working today, and I have run out of thread, but I hope to be able to do my repair work tomorrow. We have had too many sleepover guests for me to be able to do much […]

We have green beans and peppers from the garden, and lots of fat green tomatoes whose ripening we eagerly await. We are using the final jar of last year’s jam (nectarine). Ah, summer!The concerts in the park have begun. Tommy came into the store to get “a big paper fish.” I had one for her. […]

This is a picture from the hiking trail we followed last weekend. Walking in town is not the same. Since we skipped the gym yesterday, #2 daughter and I took a 45-minute walk around our neighborhood after dinner. Instead of lush nature, we got to enjoy human vagaries.People’s gardens, of course. Some are beautiful, and […]

Instead of going to the gym, I am fighting with xanga.I went and made a new xanga, here: works perfectly. Obviously, the problem is not with my machine. Yet this xanga here, which I have had for nearly a year, does not work. I cannot enter text in the normal text box. It will not […]
