The kids wanted some of their very own...

I have minimal artistic talent, but this was fun anyway...

1) Go to and look at the name of the article. That is the name of your band.

2) Next, go to and check the last four words of the very last quote. That is the name of your album.

3) Finally, head over to and look at the third image. Whatever it is, that will be your album cover.

4) Muck all three up with your favorite photo-editing program and post the result.

I cheated just a little... )
I'm seeing a pattern whereby all still-functional KJSL email addresses seem to be subtly screwed up. Randomly, emails are not being delivered to KJSL accounts. Randomly, emails sent from KJSL accounts are taking days and days and days to reach their destinations. Sometimes everything works perfectly but sometimes everything's totally hosed.

I'm not trying to be an alarmist here, but I would suggest that anyone still using a KJSL email address put some time into transitioning away from it, just in case you lose it abruptly like I lost mine. :P
Every year, we go see Santa at the mall. But he's not just some rent-a-Kringle, he's the real deal, which is why we make the trip every year. And when we go see him, we take a picture. And when we get the picture, I put it online so y'all can see how my kids have grown while Santa stays the same. Check out the pics at my blog.

My Facebook account got disabled. *shrug* Tant pis.
Partial to the Bean... is coming back online, slowly, at its new (yet sort of old) location:

Please update your links if you link to me. Please let others know if anyone you know also reads. Please do whatever you have to do to sub to the RSS feed's new address, if you do that sort of thing, and tell me if it's not working right.

Hmm, now I have to remember how to re-install my mood theme. :P

Um, yeah

I just said the following sentence:

"I can't be the only one that can do anything for everybody all the time!!"
...I did some memes.

Holiday-themed memes, at that! )
...and I have a bursitis in my hip, and an order for a sleep study, and an order for some fasting bloodwork to check, lessee: CBC w/diff & platelets, lipids, comp. metabolic panel and TSH.

Also I have a really shitty head cold -- everything's solid-packed and achey from my jawbone to my scalp. Bleh.

I direct your attention to this:

The Rose Show
(Episode 1)

p.s. I am currently at while I wait for my kjsl account to return.
...I walk (and other things) with Tom Hollander. I'm becoming increasingly obsessed with this man, because he ees le hawt.

I got the most amazing and amusing email today, in my capacity as website administrator for an International organization devoted to Attachment Parenting.
click - nervy )
[ profile] anime_heart tagged me, so here I go...

The rules are easy, just post 10 things that recently made you happy! Then tag 10 people and force them to post this meme on their LJs. Because it is good. Everyone needs a little happiness once in a while.

1. Sammy's good day.

2. Making apple crisp, and messing with the recipe a little (adding a couple pears, and mixing some applesauce into the crust in place of adding more butter and brown sugar), and having it turn out really yummy.

3. A friend of mine got really absolutely excellent news that she has been waiting and working and praying for for several years. I felt so great for her!

4. Dancing the hora at my friend's wedding in Boston. I can't express how joyful that moment was.

5. Looking around at the other guests at the wedding and seeing that I was dressed exactly right. (The girls and I shopped at 3 different stores, bought a dress and 2 tops, came home decided the dress was too spring-y, so we chose an outfit around one of the tops, then we re-evaluated the next day and decided to look further afield. I dug into the back of my closet and found a dress that I'd basically forgotten I had -- it looks like a black corduroy vest and a black floral skirt but it's one piece -- that looked really nice on me. Picture coming whenever I find the one that Anth took. Anyway, I fit right in, which was great because I was very anxious about being conspicuous or out of place.)

6. The fleece blanket I bought at target -- black with happy skellies all over it.

7. Watching lots of British comedies this week on DVD. The kids love Little Britain, but I prefer Black Books.

8. Having a "stay at home" day today -- the first in a loooong time. Being home all day gives me the energy to get a lot of niggling crap jobs done, which takes a load off of my mind.

9. The crisp cool autumn weather finally showed up! Our cat can't stay off of our laps. I love the change of the seasons.

10. Snuggling all cozy-like with my girls in bed this morning, under the down comforter.

Now I'm supposed to tag 10 people. I'm tempted to tag 10 people who never freaking post to their LJs, but that seems kind of pointless, so I'll cop out and say:

If you haven't done this meme yet, TAG!!

It's me!

the letter meme -- I like mine! )
Anth bought a big bottle of Frangelico last weekend, for unclear reasons having to do with him planning to give it to someone but then deciding not to, so whatever. So now we have this bottle. What do I do with it? Liqueurs are not my thang.

This cracked me up particularly because [ profile] anime_heart, [ profile] cindersh and [ profile] catew have all known each other (and me) for like 10 years, via our due-date list. Apparently there are some hidden tensions coming out here.
I need opinions: For a 2:00 wedding at this place, how should I dress? Would a long patterned skirt and a simple solid-color t-shirt sort of top be wildly out of place?
