Downtown St. Petersburg

Posted by miss m on Monday, April 23, 2012 @ 12:10am in Entertainment, General Blather, Love, Photography and Pics, Weather |

After a late start and braving rain, we made our way to downtown St. Pete this afternoon. We did wind up getting rained on, but only briefly. This is Florida after all, and in 10 minutes or so, the rain had given way to sunshine. There was an art festival going on but we got […]

Afternoon at the Beach

Posted by miss m on Sunday, April 8, 2012 @ 2:22pm in Entertainment, General Blather, Photography and Pics, Weather |

Yesterday the weather was beautiful. The kind of gorgeous day people think Florida always is like but in truth, rarely if ever actually has. It’s normally sweltering by April. But, the temperature was hovering around 80F (26C) and with low humidity plus a breeze, it was just lovely. We wanted to get outside and enjoy […]

Little Unexpected Perks

Posted by miss m on Thursday, March 29, 2012 @ 11:13pm in Entertainment, General Blather, Photography and Pics, Walt Disney World |

When you are a Disney fan, living a little over an hour away from Walt Disney World comes with obvious perks. Being a Florida resident means you can go for tiny money compared to the visitor who spends thousands for a week’s stay. (Honestly, you can go unlimited times throughout a year for $15/month as […]

A Little Bit of This and That

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, March 28, 2012 @ 12:03am in Entertainment, General Blather, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Saturday Didn’t do a lot over the weekend. Saturday I originally was going to meet up with an online friend for lunch but sadly, she hurt herself moving furniture the night before and had to reschedule. (Hope you’re feeling better, Jennifer!) So instead, we ran a handful of errands and rented The Help. It was […]

Bay area Renaissance Festival 2012

Posted by miss m on Sunday, February 26, 2012 @ 11:54am in Entertainment, Freebies Discounts Deals, General Blather, Love, Photography and Pics, Weather |

Yesterday, we hit the Bay area Renaissance Festival. The weather was absolutely perfect and we wanted to take advantage of that. It’s been a VERY hot winter and since the festival runs February – April, it only gets hotter. And a sweltering festival makes for a very miserable time. But yesterday…oh, it was glorious weather. […]

Christmas with Mickey

We headed out to Disney for a few hours on Saturday since the last time we went, I was getting sick and we wound up having to leave and missed the fireworks, the Osborne lights, etc. Then, we couldn’t go because of Love having surgery on his leg. But! Love was a trooper and nine […]

Big Cat Rescue

Posted by miss m on Monday, September 12, 2011 @ 10:48pm in Entertainment, Family, kitties, Photography and Pics |

Had an amazing time at Big Cat Rescue with my Mom and Sister today. First time taking the tour. I really applaud their goal – to put themselves out of business by changing laws and stopping irresponsible breeders and such so there doesn’t have to be a sanctuary for abused cats. The tour guide even […]

Public Service Announcement

Posted by miss m on Sunday, August 7, 2011 @ 12:09am in Entertainment, General Blather, Sickness and Health Issues |

Dear general public, Should you be the type to enjoy wearing Patchouli as a fragrance, please do your fellow movie-goers a favor and refrain from wearing in a movie theater. Your rancidly strong scent does NOT actually accentuate the two hour experience of Captain America. Instead, it makes for two hours of migraine hell. Being […]

You Oughta Be In Pictures

Posted by miss m on Monday, July 18, 2011 @ 1:03am in Entertainment, Family, General Blather, Photography and Pics |

(This is an entirely non-medical post. I need to do something different for a little break. I’m sure medical entries/updates will resume probably right away, but in the meantime, enjoy one completely randomly off-topic.) There’s a movie that was released in 1977 called Slapshot. It’s kind of a cult favorite hockey movie where a minor […]

Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!

Posted by miss m on Saturday, June 25, 2011 @ 2:41pm in Entertainment, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

Thursday night I woke up every 45 minutes or so the whole night long feeling like I was being cooked in an oven. Not night sweats specifically as I wasn’t sweaty, but more night hot flashes. The heat of my whole body would wake me up and I’d find myself laying there just overwhelmed by […]

Sleepless Night

Posted by miss m on Friday, May 13, 2011 @ 10:54am in Entertainment, Finances, General Blather, M's Birthday, Sickness and Health Issues, Travel, Walt Disney World, Work |

Man, what a miserable night. I got a really bad headache-bordering-on-migraine late yesterday evening, like around 11pm or so. Just really sudden and out of nowhere. I got ready and went to bed. And I fell asleep ok until Gracie woke me up around 4:30am because she was scratching my leather computer chair. (GRR! BAD […]


Happy Surprise Mail

Posted by miss m on Saturday, May 7, 2011 @ 8:07pm in Entertainment, General Blather, M's Birthday |

I had a lovely surprise in the mail – a package from a bookseller. I didn’t order any books so I wasn’t sure what it was. Opened it up to find a signed, limited edition of Woods and Waters Wild from my amazon wishlist! (And yes, that is his signature! ) Charles de Lint is […]

Let’s Go Bolts!

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 @ 11:26pm in Entertainment, General Blather |

Congrats to the Tampa Bay Lightning who, with their 5-3 win tonight over the Washington Capitals, swept the series in 4 games and are advancing to the Conference finals! …of course, Love’s favorite team, the Boston Bruins, also won tonight putting them up 3-0 against the Philadelphia Flyers. They need only one more win to […]
