My online pseudonym has more “real” hits for me than my actual legal name, and I’m kind of glad.
I was raised in a completely nonreligious household, although my (step)dad was raised and confirmed in the Catholic faith and my mom was raised Presbyterian. We celebrated Christmas and Easter, but purely secularly; no scary pictures of Mutilated Jesus or boring-ass church services for us, just ham for days afterward.
Those were the Rajneeshis.
Let me know how it turns out when you try it! Mine were nice and fluffy throughout.
I’m married to what must be the only damn Newfie who DOESN’T have even a hint of an accent, even though the rest of his family does.
I got mine when I was 29, the year I graduated from radiology school. I designed it myself. It’s the radiation symbol fused with the symbol for female. In the centre (hard to see in this pic) is the Japanese kanji “chikata”, which means “strength”.
One of my classmates in grade 6 (age 12 or 13) got married to a much older man over summer break before grade 7 and stopped coming to school. Her family were Russian Old Believers.
I used to lurk on a mashup forum and got so many amazing mashups there.
Girl Talk is the shizzzz!
My favourite running albums are Daft Punk’s “Alive 2007", followed closely by “Mile(y) High Club” by Super Mash Bros and Bruneaux’s “Creature of Habit”. I love mashups!
Probably my favourite Oregon town I’ve lived in. I loved living there.
HAHA I have some STORIES about Seaside. Oh lord, my 20s were a hot mess.
I really need to start my blog back up, I put it on hiatus earlier this year (stupid depression). Just as an aside: my rice cooker has several different timed functions, including a simmer setting that brings it to boiling temperature and then holds at a simmer for the selected time period.
What part of the Oregon coast are you visiting? I grew up just south of Portland, lived all over the place including Astoria, Corvallis, and Klamath Falls, and moved to Toronto, Canada 6 years ago. I have many fond memories of riding in my dad’s tricked-out Jeep at Sand Lake and crabbing in Yaquina Bay.
My husband and I have lived in 250 square feet for over 5 years now and we haven’t killed and eaten each other yet. Mostly because there isn’t room in a mini-fridge for a corpse.
For Canada Day, my husband took me out on a date for lunch at our local pub. Nothing too exciting, but it was still nice!
I made chicken and dumplings in my rice cooker for supper, and I’m baking some mini cherry pies made with the cherries I got at the farmers market last weekend. I used balsamic vinegar instead of lemon juice in the cherry filling and it tastes SO GOOD Y’ALL OMG.
“Wolf” by Veruca Salt. I saw somewhere that Louise Post wrote it about her cat Wolfgang who died while she was on vacation.
One of my best friends graduated from Trent, he’s a journalist in BC.
I wish there were actually some concerts in my area that I was interested in attending in the next 6 months. My codes are good till 2020 so I’m sure something good will come along by then. LOL
