Picking a New Something

Alright, so as if Jesus heard my cry for something new, I got something to do last night.  While I may not write for fun anymore, I do have some side work now editing/writing/proofing.  I may also have a new gig managing an someone’s effort to make healthcare knowledge more readily available.

So I have stuff to do now, and while that may not become my “hobby”, it does help.

I did think of a fun fact about me:  My nickname is Hooty and I collect owls.  Lots of them.

But I do have new interests, so here’s the plan, Stan:

  • I will camp a lot this summer…so I guess I ought to buy a tent and some of those marshmallow sticks.
  • Mike and I are going to start bowling on a regular basis.
  • I am going to get a massive wine rack and fill it to the brim.  In addition, I will start to build a bar.
  • I might start fishing (weather permitting, and permit permitting).
  • And I also want to collect something…but I’m having a hard time deciding what.  I want it to be something that isn’t that easy to find, you know, that will require some digging.  Flea markets, yard sales, etc.  I don’t want it to be impossible either.  Or insanely expensive.

Trust me, if I could have my choice of collection, it would be designer handbags…check out my Pinterest board…but that’s just not feasible.

So I’m taking suggestions as to what to collect.  SEND ‘EM OVER!

Time Out: Marshmallows Made Cool…by HIPSTERS?!


another article on gourmet marshmallows… This is not helping my bad mood tonight!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!  Marshmallows are the new “hip” thing?  Marshmallows.  Really.

ATTENTION HIPSTERS:  Don’t ruin marshmallows!!!!!

Do you remember when I told you that I can determine the future?  You know, just by my thoughts alone?  Like when I had a hard time finding maxi dresses, and all the sudden they were popular.  Or when I thought, “I’ll go nautical this summer” and all the sudden Target and every other blessed store had nautical-themed clothes all summer?

Well last night, I was jonesin’ for a marshmallow (not the vanilla or gingerbread ones I had left over from Christmas) but an honest-to-God Kraft Jet-Puffed marshmallow.  Mike was in town and kind enough to go buy me a bag of the jumbo ones.  And then I get to work and read this bullshit.  Marshmallows are trendy.

Fucking hipsters...made me cuss.

Well now…marshmallows are trendy.  TRENDY!  Marshmallows can’t be trendy!  I mean, I’ll eat the strawberry ones, or the vanilla and gingerbread ones that are of the Kraft Jet-Puffed kind…but hipsters are ruining this.

Now marshmallows, the simple food that comes in a bag and makes the best part of s’mores, are available in trendy bakeries and cafes across the nation.

  • Cinnamon marshmallows
  • Strawberry basil marshmallows
  • Chocolate rosemary marshmallows
  • Cherry chocolate marshmallows
  • Fruit and honey marshmallows
  • Luscious Lemony Meringue or Caramel Swirl marshmallows


I’m staying on the marshmallow bandwagon, but I’m going to stick with the original.  Eff you, hipsters.

The real thing.
