Vintage Kelvinator Trimwall Foodarama Refrigerator / Freezer

Posted by miss m on Saturday, October 6, 2018 @ 7:24pm in Blog, General Blather |

Sometimes the internet is a neat place. We hit a local antique store today that does a monthly market called Brocante Vintage Market. One of the unique things they had was a vintage Kelvinator Trimwall Foodarama side-by-side fridge/freezer. It was in amazing condition so my guess is that it was probably installed new in a […]

Dreams of Disney Days Gone By

Posted by miss m on Thursday, July 19, 2018 @ 2:25pm in General Blather, Photography and Pics, Walt Disney World |

It’s no great surprise to anyone who knows me that I’m a big Disney fan. I have been since I first went to Walt Disney World way back in 1984 when I was a wee girl of seven. It ignited a fascination in me and a sense of wonder. And certain things just really stuck […]

From the beginning, I knew something was wrong with Gracie’s mouth. It’s why I initially took her to the vet. But the vet felt the drooling was a nausea issue and got fixated on her abdomen and wound up sending me to a specialist for detailed blood work and ultrasound. All that cost me around […]

On Friday, July 28th, following an MRI Arthrogram, I was diagnosed with a SLAP Tear; specifically, “Left superior labral tear extending along the posterior superior quadrant.” I’m going to need surgery which is going to leave me with one arm for months, unable to drive, work, or support myself in anyway. So I’m asking for […]

Gut Punch (My Reaction On the Eve of the 2016 Presidential Election)

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, November 9, 2016 @ 2:56am in General Blather, Grief |

I don’t have the words to adequately describe how disappointed, disgusted and literally scared I feel in this moment as a woman in this country. I knew we were still a country battling bigotry, misogyny, hatred and even anti-intellectualism, but….but. This is something else entirely. I thought we were better than this. I thought decency […]

Vote for PhoenixFire Designs Best Handcrafted Jewelry

Posted by miss m on Monday, August 15, 2016 @ 1:36am in General Blather, PhoenixFire Designs |

Can you do me a quick and easy favor? 15 years ago in 2001 I started making jewelry. It was a hobby at first, but people liked what I did and eventually 10 years ago in 2006, I opened my PhoenixFire Designs etsy shop. I continued to run my business part-time while also managing a […]

Another mass shooting in America

Posted by miss m on Sunday, June 12, 2016 @ 1:36pm in General Blather, Grief |

The victims and families of the mass shooting in Orlando last night don’t want your prayers or your thoughts. They want your OUTRAGE that a small percent of gun nuts have successfully lobbied against passing ANY common sense gun laws and have put their profits over the lives of human beings. RAGE to your elected […]

Megacon Orlando 2016

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, May 31, 2016 @ 3:17pm in Creativity, Entertainment, General Blather, Photography and Pics |

I went to Megacon for the first time this weekend. Previously, I made my Comic Con debut last year, in my first-ever cosplay as a girl Marty McFly to meet Lea Thompson at Tampa Bay Comic Con. This year, we had even higher stakes as none other than Doc Brown himself, Christopher Lloyd was going […]

Today is my 39th birthday. (Woah, I know!) I spent the day going to see Captain America: Civil War (#TeamCap!) and generally had a low-key but fun day. Here’s an obligatory birthday day selfie:

Leap Day

Posted by miss m on Monday, February 29, 2016 @ 6:28pm in Blog, General Blather, Holidays, Photography and Pics |

It seems that I only write a post once every four years these days. Regardless if that’s accurate or not, I just had to post something today to have a date stamp of February 29th on the blog. 😉 So here’s a gratuitous car selfie in lieu of any actual content: Happy Mathematical Construct Day […]

I know I should probably find it “cute” or something, but I just can’t. Every single day, I am “treated” to the…let’s be generous and call it “singing” of the small child in the apartment below me. He (?) sings as loud as he can, shrill and screechy and ungodly out of tune over and […]

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 @ 10:28pm in Entertainment, General Blather, Movies, Photography and Pics |

I recently found a copy of Starlog Magazine from January 1990 while cleaning. The cover story? An interview with Robert Zemeckis on the filming of Back to the Future: Part II! This is a timely find given that we are nearly at the future – October 21, 2015. From McFly It features some great production […]
