Books

I love books. I’ve been reading since grade school, pretty much anything I could get my hands on that sounded entertaining. Books are a great escape from the daily stresses of life, and a great way to learn about other…

Roundabouts

I hate roundabouts. Growing up on the left coast, roundabouts were something that existed in British TV shows and movies. Then I took a 5-day road trip on the east coast with a friend. We had a saying, during that…

Amazon.com

I love Amazon. I could spend my entire month’s salary there, every month, if I didn’t have bills to pay and savings to aquire. It’s an addiction. But seriously, they sell EVERYTHING. The usual books, CDs, and DVDs, plus computer…

A few weeks ago, I got tired of the lack of space, not to mention the lack of hangers, in my closet. So I spent an afternoon cleaning out the closet and the dresser. I was not terribly surprised to…

Macs, Cameras, and Parents

So I spent part of the weekend visiting my parents in central Washington. As usual when visiting my parents, there are computer questions to be answered. My mom finally joined the digital world with a MacBook Pro about a year…
