Like everyone else on the planet, I watched “Tidying Up” on Netflix and have been Marie Kondoing my life. I did this last year after reading her book but stuck mostly to my closet and I didn’t dive into the depths of some long forgotten boxes in my garage. I guess saying that it was … Continue reading I watched Tidying Up, and found my 1999 journal
Adventures with Pilots N Paws
I took a plane right last weekend and was able to deliver a dog to her forever home. By most standards this was a completely amazing weekend but even more remarkable was that these two events went hand in hand. Abena is a purebred 1.5 year old Ridgeback that was surrendered to the North Central … Continue reading Adventures with Pilots N Paws
Irrigation is Evil
Let’s talk about irrigation for a moment, meaning outdoor sprinkler systems. I’m convinced that they were spawned from satan just to torture me and make my eye twitch. If I’m ever arrested for suddenly snapping at something totally irrelevant, I guarantee, it will be irrigation that pushed me over the edge. Fact #1: My main … Continue reading Irrigation is Evil
Level 2 Chargepoint Home installation
I really want to post some of the pictures of the projects I’ve been doing around the house but everything is kind of half done and total chaos. It’s like I just moved in except now I have 11 years of crap! The good news is, my two month long level two charger has finally … Continue reading Level 2 Chargepoint Home installation
What would you do if you spilled beer on someone during a movie?
The title says it all. This is one of those “only me” scenarios but I’m curious what everyone would do because I’m still shaking my head. Last night, I went to see Deadpool 2 at the Cinerama Dome at Arclight Hollywood. On a very side note, if you haven’t seen it, you should. I didn’t … Continue reading What would you do if you spilled beer on someone during a movie?
Summer Painting Projects
Even after being a homeowner for 11 years things astonish me, like house-painting. The first year I was in this house, I repainted the living room three times because each time, I hated the color. Now it’s been the same for 10 years and I still love it to the point where I still think … Continue reading Summer Painting Projects
40 Days of Kia Soul EV Ownership and Time of Use Electricity
I’m 40 days into owning a 2016 Kia Soul EV. I don’t like it, I loooove it! Yes the car is boxy and a little ugly looking but with the rise in gas prices, I’m happy to have made the switch to have this as the main car. I almost had a heart attack last … Continue reading 40 Days of Kia Soul EV Ownership and Time of Use Electricity
Ode to 12 Months of Pixie Cut Grow Out
One year ago today on the morning of Burbank's General Election my hair looked like this: In the afternoon, it did not. It looked like this, and this face was a face of "I screwed up. Big Time." My rescue partner Babs scolded me that I should never cut my hair on Election Day … Continue reading Ode to 12 Months of Pixie Cut Grow Out
Why I Won’t Cut the Cord
Cutting the cord is super popular these days and if you google it there are 80 million blogs telling you how to cut it. I’ve considered it, crunched the numbers and here is why I’ve decided to not cut the cord. I get why people do it and it totally works for some, but it … Continue reading Why I Won’t Cut the Cord
Goodbye Prius, Hello Kia Soul EV!
Yes, it’s true! Last week I said good-bye to my beloved "Silver Pine Mica" Prius with the Apple stickers on it. At almost 170,000 miles it was time. Overall mechanically there was nothing huge wrong with it but there were a lot of little things that one would expect from a car with that much … Continue reading Goodbye Prius, Hello Kia Soul EV!
