on turning 30

I turn 30 in November. I’m not upset about it, so don’t expect a woe-is-me post. (Though, this blog contains an unfortunate number of those, if you’re into that sort of thing.) I really don’t feel that grown up. Perhaps because I’m not making as much money as I thought I would be at this … Continue reading

Roasted Beet and Potato Salad

Lately I seem to have some time on my hands. My new job, while it pays well, is boring to the point of tears. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on who you are) I spend a good amount of time trying to figure out what to make for dinner, and that time has been well spent … Continue reading

if I ever have a son

Because I can’t seem to backup my hard drive enough to not lose everything every five to seven years, I’ve decided that I’m going to put things that I want to remember onto my blog. Not things like my grocery list. That would just be silly now wouldn’t it? (I’ve found a great droid app … Continue reading

A resolution I may try less hard to break

Is it too early to start talking about New Year Resolutions? Because eff it; I’m about to. Now, I normally don’t make resolutions since I know I will just break them.

hi

Hi everyone. It’s me again, Laila. Remember me? Of course you do! Here I am! See? Right here. Where have I been? Well at work of course! But you’ve already been working kinda, (you say, with a shrug of your shoulder). Yes, yes well I have, but I went back and got a big girl job … Continue reading

Many of us have (or maybe have not?) heard of the Swedish Tight Pants Theory. It essentially postulated that Swedish men of the 1970’s experienced higher levels of infertility in comparison to men in surrounding countries, primarily due to their strict adherence to the very fashionable, yet in hindsight seemingly foolish, style of wearing uncomfortably … Continue reading

Veteran’s Day & Lucky Numbers

The “1” button on everyone’s keyboard is surely getting a good workout today. May I suggest being kind enough to split your usage between the “1” above your letters, and the “1” on your number pad. I mean seriously people, give ’em a break! But that’s not what I meant to talk about. I wanted … Continue reading

the Campaign for Common Courtesy

I’m going to start this post by apologizing (something that the hubs says I do toooo much of) for potentially having blogposteritis today. I have been home sick for several days and I can’t access my work computer remotely for some reason, and of course, the IT guy is out this week. So…I blog. And … Continue reading
