Say What? – A Work Adventure

Work is always an adventure…yes?  Anyone that has a job has crazy stories about what misadventures happen while they count down to Friday.  In my job I do a lot of hiring, which means that I have to do a lot of interviewing.  I am curious about people (my mother calls it nosy), I like…

A Sweet Escapade

Here is a post written by the ever awesome Snarky Rachel (aka Bella Rachel in previous posts)  I told her a story about something that knocked me off my feet a bit.  So what did she do? She wrote it on my blog as me, knowing that I never would have posted it on my own.  So here…

Conversation with my husband right before he left for work: Hubby: “God we’re strange, and how did we find each other?” EM: “I try to be normal” Hubby: “Thinking about it once in a while doesn’t count as trying”

Just call me Cullen

I spent a lot of time in the sun today…for me. There was a fair amount of driving and waiting outside today as I ran errands and I was in the sun quite a bit. Granted I have a hat (I pay a lot for that hair color, I can’t let it fade) and sunglasses…

Cornered by Celebrity Cunning

So having just finished the comic fueled four day sprint that is Comic-Con, I had the chance to see many interesting things. But there was one person that I never expected to see that I found fascinating to watch. This person is famous for many things, but most notably for driving a talking car and…

Best Worst Party Ever

I have been blessed to go to many very cool parties. I have been to parties in Las Vegas that hosted entire circuses’ and I have been to parties in France with ballrooms decorated with live plants in an “Alice in Wonderland“Theme. I know what a good party looks like. But the party I went…
