One night last week, we lost power during a storm. ... Nope, Anna would classify that as a boring start. I'll try again. During a single period between sunset and sunrise, those of my kindred blood and I lost all electric capabilities during a vociferation of nature. Yeah. I think I'm just gonna go with,… Continue reading Survival Trivia With My Father
Hellooo! *snorts* Yes, at this point, I have abandoned all attempts at writing a good intro. I'm terrible at them. You know it (at least, Anna does), I know it, we all know it. And I hate writing them, so why bother trying? Look unto my example, kids. That's a nugget of wisdom right there.… Continue reading Villainy Includes Sabotaging Tea
You thought I was done, didn't you? HA. Nope. I'm going to drivel on a bit more. See, on our way home from Greenville, we found the COOLEST little town in North Carolina. We stopped to eat, and take a walk through this park thing which turned out to be a college campus. (Oops.) There… Continue reading Wild Road Trips and Prince Caspian Productions—Part 3
Welcome to part 2 of our road trip. May the odds be ever in your favor. Okay. I said in my last post that we were in Greenville to see a play of Prince Caspian, and that was where my specificity ended. So, I'll elaborate. This is not just any cheesy high-school play. This is… Continue reading Wild Road Trips and Prince Caspian Productions—Part 2
I'm not slacking off on posting, really. (Though that wouldn't be beneath me.) See, last week, my family was traveling down to South Carolina to see a play of Prince Caspian (more on that later), and between that and having the brain cells of a flea, I wasn't able to write anything. Which, technically, was… Continue reading Wild Road Trips and Prince Caspian Productions—Part 1
Yesterday was Star Wars day, which, in all honesty, I didn't even know was a thing until a couple months ago. But apparently, it is, and Anna decided that we were going to celebrate it. My initial reaction? Suuure. I was a little skeptical. Okay, a lot skeptical. I mean, first of all, it's Star… Continue reading May the Fourth Be With You!
I intended to write this post last week as a Baran Current Events crash course, but for some reason, I just wasn't feeling it. I'm still not feeling it, actually, but it needs to be done, so here it is. Only now it's a Baran Recent Events crash course, because all this happened 1-2 weeks… Continue reading Moving, Baran-Style
I had plans for this blog post. For the first time in my life, I wrote it a week before I was supposed to publish it. I would wait for Thursday and post it like any respectable blogger. Right? Wrong. My dear mother was so impatient to read it that I, being the dutiful daughter… Continue reading Why My Family Should Never Be Movie Characters
