The Most Epic of Lip Sync Battles

17 Feb 2014

Joseph Gordon-Levitt turns 33 today and he’s come a long, long way since 3rd Rock from the Sun.


Because I Have the Flu…

…and need a pick-me-up. (There’s something incredibly naughty about Tom Hiddleston talking about delayed gratification.)

Sherlock: Many Happy Returns

26 Dec 2013

The BBC has a special place in my heart because it produced (and produces) some of my favorite television series of all time, like Blackadder and Luther, and introduced me to Hugh Laurie before he was Gregory House and Jeremy Brett, whose portrayal of Sherlock Holmes is iconic.

Because of Brett, I was very reluctant to watch Sherlock, which is a modern retelling of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective stories. However, weak-willed being that I am, I can’t resist at least trying any crime drama…and I became hooked after thirty minutes.

Season two of Sherlock ended with a modern take on The Final Problem…and here’s a teaser for season three that is making my stomach flutter with anticipation for January 1, 2014.

Merry Christmas!

24 Dec 2013

I’ll be celebrating with lots of food, lots of family, lots of dancing with my new nephew (I–and you can, too–blame him and his cuteness for my distraction from writing), and that Christmas classic, Die Hard.

More Relatable than It Should Be

And, yes, double standards are alive and well:

A NAUGHTY LITTLE CHRISTMAS Collection is a USAT Best-seller

11 Dec 2013

Kind of cool. (I admit I had no idea it was selling that well. I’m a horrible collaborator because of my work schedule.)

Big thanks to everyone who put A Naughty Little Christmas on the USA Today best-selling list.

How to Resist Black Friday

29 Nov 2013
  1. Live in Canada.
  2. Put a hold on an over-priced new home.


My employer is moving to another (and questionable) part of town and I’m not a commuter because commuting can kill you. (Okay, I exaggerate, but it’s close.) Thus, I’m giving up my cozy home in the nice part of downtown Calgary for a place in the middle of nowhere. On the bright side, my new home is even closer to the river, so I might actually venture outside and enjoy it. Of course, that could be a con if there’s another epic flood.

Anyway, I won’t be reduced to eating ramen anytime soon, but I won’t be indulging my more frivolous wants…like the iPad Mini with Retina display that went on sale today.  *sniff*
