Hellooo! As you can see, my wit has returned, and I can once again write a decent post. Hallelujah for that. In the meantime, I hope you've been anxiously awaiting Part 2 of our vacation.

Another Baran Vacation, Part 1— Featuring Photogenic Pigeons and a Hurricane

Well hello, all you lovelies. You may (or may not, depending on how devoted you are) have noticed that I didn't do a post last Thursday. The reason (yes, there is a reason) behind this is... I was lazy. I was going to say "Bet ya didn't see that one coming!" until I realized that… Continue reading Another Baran Vacation, Part 1— Featuring Photogenic Pigeons and a Hurricane

Survival Trivia With My Father

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.

This is… Continue reading Wild Road Trips and Prince Caspian Productions—Part 2

Wild Road Trips and Prince Caspian Productions—Part 1

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

Why My Family Should Never Be Movie Characters

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
