Snakehead Terror, revisited

by meanlouise July 14, 2013 horror & scifi

Saturday night we returned to a simpler time, the time of Snakehead Terror. We enjoyed this gem when it debuted on SyFy (nee SciFi) in 2004. Would we enjoy it the second time around, nearly 10 years later? Yes. This classic made-for-TV craptacular featured Bruce Boxleitner’s carefree feathered mane as the sheriff and supermodel-turned-actress Carol […]

Hyperbole and a Half

by meanlouise February 28, 2011 true life 2011

Husband is sick, which means he’s been laying on the couch moaning a lot. Last night he had a fever and chills. This means he tried to kill me by piling more blankets on us than one would need to pack out for arctic exploration even though it was already 70 degrees in the house […]

We were walking along in companionable silence when he suddenly turned to me and exclaimed, “Did you know there are people who only poop once a week?”

There goes Wednesday…

by meanlouise November 4, 2009 humor

Husband showed me this, so it’s his fault his laundry didn’t get done: Ed Asner shares his love of tracksuits and hatred of small dogs. All that and more at the Found Footage Festival. Sadly, I couldn’t find anything to further JunglePete’s fear of puppets in trashcans.

That whole yin and yang thing

by meanlouise December 16, 2008 true life 2008

I’m ridiculously organized. Martha Stewart doesn’t scare me. Sometimes I fear this could lead me to do bad things – like crime or drugs or scrapbooking. Husband, on the other hand, has never met a piece of paper he didn’t love. He’s by no means a horder, but let’s put it this way: Remember way […]

Friday Five: FishInnards Edition

by meanlouise December 12, 2008 linkage

Today is Husband’s birthday so I thought I’d do a special FishInnards Friday Five edition. Husband’s website is fishinnards because once upon a time he asked me to register a name for him and I asked him what name he wanted and he said, “Surprise me.” I didn’t think of it entirely on my own, […]

My Reputation & the Hamiltonian Gallery Opening

by meanlouise October 11, 2008 art

I don’t have much to say about our jaunt over to the hipster-infested Hamiltonian Gallery opening . It was a worthy outing, though we didn’t stay long. It was nice to go to an opening where we know maybe 10% of the crowd, 15% tops. The show was packed, which was great, but it was […]

Amidst all the hooha about curry being good for your brain, many articles, even in allegedly reputable sources such as webMD misidentified Curcuma Longa as “cumin” or “curry” rather than turmeric. I mention this because the rest of you are able to glance at such things and move on with your life. I live with […]

December 12th is a fine day

The love of my life and my best friend for over a decade was born 35 years ago on this day. (He hasn’t updates his page in a while but you can send him birthday wishes, fishinnards AT or leave them here if you want). Also born today, the fabulous KD. Other less-notable birthdays […]
