Elevators really push my buttons

Yup. Went there.

Ok, so the elevator is inherently awkward. Confined space. Strangers. Smells. Standing. Germs on the buttons. Mirrors, sometimes. Security camera, sometimes. You automatically submit yourself to the fact that if it gets stuck, you will have to help deliver a baby. It’s all bad. Continue reading

Me lucky charms

Top o’ the marnin’ to ya! St. Patrick’s Day always reminds me of a wee embarrassing moment I had whilst in university.

I decided to cool it on the blog over the holidays, you know, for Jesus’ sake. But then my computer crashed on Dec. 27 (thanks a lot, Jesus!). I brought it to the computer fixing people, it was sent to the manufacturer and I STILL don’t have it back. I have to type this on a tiny, ancient Netbook, so this will be short and sweet.
