Drivin’ Ms Judy

white sands national monument

Our bags are packed, we’re ready to go. We’re sitting here, inside the Hyundai, Judy looks at me and says, “Let’s get on our way!” We’re leaving Central Texas, We should’ve rented the Lexus… OK, let’s hit the road! Could I be any more nerdy with that sad attempt at rewriting the lyrics to “I’m […]

Surviving a visit from your Mother and Mother-in-law

You’re in panic mode! You just found out that your Mother and Mother-in-law are visiting… at the same time!! What do you do?!? First off, stop hyper-ventilating, that’s only going to help you pass out. Next, follow my two easy steps on how to survive this situation or rather, how to avoid it in the […]

Happy Anniversary

Today Mike and I celebrate our two year anniversary! It being our anniversary and all, I thought I’d dedicate a post to my main squeeze! The man that I’m so madly in love with today started out as my climbing partner. Is there a better way to meet someone?!? I don’t think so. If you […]

Hackintosh Build

Boot Arguments, Bios and Drivers… OH MY!! Perhaps you’re thinking, “Nerd!”, or possibly, “GEEK!!” — call me what you want, but my computer kicks ARSE! It’s fast… like, REALLY fast, especially compared to the last-updated-in-2008 (the “update” in ’12 doesn’t count) Mac Pro that I could have purchased for another $1,325! Where I come from, […]

Public Nudity

I, like most American women (I think), am not exactly fond of getting buck naked in a changing room with other women and then proceeding to bathe with those same women in a shared bath. I’m not sure if growing up in the states is to blame for this, but I have a feeling if […]

Home for the Holidays

Thursday, December 13th started at 3:30am. Mike and I were out of the house by 5am, rumbling down the small streets leading from our home to the train station. I was frantically going through the checklist in my mind… Had I forgotten something important like a gift or those awesome dark chocolate kit-kats that we […]

Cat Brothel

After enjoying a delectable dinner with some friends, the six of us ventured down the street to visit one of Shoko’s favorite places, a “Neko Café” or as the Japanese would translate it in English, “Coffee House of Cat”, OR as I lovingly refer to it as, “The Cat Brothel”. Wait, what’s that? You’ve never […]

Avocado Chocolate Pudding

Yup, I’m totally diggin’ my new Kitchen Aid mixer! It’s first use was an easy one, a Paleo diet Chocolate Pudding recipe! I’ve been reading a lot about all the health benefits of Avocados and this is the yummiest way to consume them that I’ve found thus far! Tomorrow I’m seeing what this blue baby […]

Dirty Thrity

I guess you could say that I had somewhat of a ‘dirty thirty’ birthday. Not so much in the sense of going out and getting absurdly intoxicated, but rather in the form of a present… A present that was probably one of the biggest presents I’ve ever received! Be hold, my new dirty thirty bike! […]

Kanamara Matsuri {video}

Back in April Mike and I ventured off with a couple friends to Kawasaki to see the Kanamara Matsuri Festival. You may be thinking to yourself, “Hey, what’s the Kanamara Matsuri Festival?”, well, make sure there are no children in the room with you and click play to find out! 😉
