Norovirus, exciting and new.

cruise

It’s time. To the cast of “The Love Boat,” I’m looking at you. It’s time to get the gang back together for made-for-teevee movie magic. You’re the only ones who can save us, the only life raft that can keep us afloat in the choppy waters of good cruises gone bad. Clearly, I’m talking about [...]

Gird your loins: V-Day is coming!

prom

Valentine’s Day is coming up faster than you’d like to believe. Although I have a general distaste for Hallmark holidays, I’m gonna tell it to you straight: if you’re in any kind of relationship, you need to know what the explicit expectations are for this holiday of lurve. At my house, I make meatloaf. No [...]

Like For Like

Believe it or not, I was quite restrained here. I may need to talk to someone about my anger.

That’s apparently how it’s supposed to work. I will like/follow your thing if you like/follow mine. Can’t we just like or not like things based solely on whether or not we like them? I guess not. This is a post on my Facebook page wall. You don’t need to read it, because I’m not proud [...]

Beat It Like It Owes You Money

That's 1/4" wallboard at the max. I'm surprised that nothing got on me.

Mouth breathers are going to be the death of me. Last night I set my alarm for six o’clock in the morning. Normally it would be five, but because of a series of screw ups yesterday, the crew that was supposed to have our bridges in didn’t complete their end of the bargain. This means [...]

Our Beautiful Differences

BeautifulDifferences1

A few weeks ago I went with my husband and my two young daughters to watch Disney’s latest animated feature film Frozen. I had no idea what the movie was supposed to be about. All I remembered from the trailer I saw was that there was a lot of snow, a snowman, and a reindeer [...]

I’m Rebellious!

sdfsdaf

I’ve never been much of a rebel. Never shoplifted as a teenager. Didn’t get drunk and vomit all over my parents while they were sleeping. Wasn’t courageous enough to light up a square in the high school bathroom. I do have a bathroom story, however. Once as a freshman nature called during civics class. I [...]

Every kiss doesn’t begin with Kay.

No!

My husband proposed in front of a dog-doo sanitation unit. You know, the little stand they have in parks and on trails, with baggies and a trash can where you can stow poo? Yeah. He didn’t mean to, but when he got down on 1 knee along the trail where we had our first date, [...]

I Love My Job

Sunrise as I soak down the freshly graded powder.

I really do like getting up and going to work in the morning. Now. I wasn’t  always so eager, but I love coming out west in the winters and freezing in ice roads. I don’t know why. Before you get excited I’ll tell you that it’s not like on the show. This is a totally [...]

The Holiday Cocktail You Need!

scan0079

You know that theory that nothing will survive a nuclear blast except for the cockroach? Well, whoever came up with that theory never met my husband, because he will survive too. He has an immune system made of titanium, I swear. He never gets sick. In fact, I think they need to create a new [...]

Rice Krispies Treats Christmas Tree Pops

Rice Krispie Treat Christmas Trees #holiday #Recipe www.AimingLow

The holidays are a time for fun and whimsy, and nothing is more whimsical that decorating cut out sugar or gingerbread cookies.  Unfortunately, this mom doesn’t have the patience for cut out dough.  Christmas is all about having fun, not stressing over perfectly shaped cookies.  So this year I decided to buck tradition and cut [...]

How to Go From a 6 to 8 in Hotness

small__226481576

I’m about to change your life. Now, that’s a pretty bold claim. You are right to doubt. There’s a lot of sixes out there that have bumped themselves up to eights. With one simple move. Cosmetics? Liposuction? Facial reconstructive surgery? Nope. Wearing sunglasses makes you instantly hotter. Two points, to be accurate. How does this [...]

A Public Service Announcement From A Southern Curmudgeon

speaker_pump07-8262013

At the risk of developing a reputation for being the new ladybit-specific AL contributor, I’m going to break a cardinal rule and sub-blog. Yeah, I may have just made up that term. Deal with it. You know, like a sub-tweet, where it’s directed at a certain person (or people) but tact prevents you from specifically [...]
