I am bad at meeting new people.

My husband, John, and I are moving to Denver, Colorado next year...something that I am super excited about as I really really love the city. The sad part is we are trading the comfort and stability of the life we have in Missouri for something new, and that includes being near my friends. I am slightly nervous that homesickness will get the best of me.

So now I am wondering: I know we are going to Denver this October for a visit and to scout out a few apartments, should I contact some… Continue

Why I want Rainbow Connection as my funeral song.

My husband and I were joking about what we want our funerals to be like when we die, however I got to thinking about one thing. The music. After all, music has been played at every funeral I've been to, and I want a song that isn't religious but something that is personal to me, which I realized is Rainbow Connection, the song I loved for years and always have burned onto a cd along with being on my Itunes. 

Why I want the rainbow connection played at my funeral (Lyrics first, then my…

I need to learn to write music, because I've got lyrics!

So a friend reminded me about how I rewrote the words to "Hail Mary" to her name. Most of which I remember and is a running joke. However, what she keeps forgetting was my lyrics to a musical number that I never wrote music for. I thought I'd share the lyrics.



It..just.. takes... just a little faith, just a little faith.

Grab some bread, get some juice, now you have what's for use for

Just a little faith, just a little faith

wear a robe, grow your hair, look like a mess?…

I'm not saying she CAN'T...

I don't know how many people has seen Tropes vs. Women in Video Games? If not, I will provide a link here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6p5AZp7r_Q . 

Now, I really don't have a problem with her video....okay I have an issue where she got a lot of money on kickstarter and yet this episode is rather plain... it looks like the usual episode. I dunno, maybe she'll spend the project money on some of the later episodes and maybe…

I'm doing YouTube again!!

So, I have this old YouTube account, that I mostly use to dick about with, and I had a few old videos. Well, I decided to clean it out, and start doing videos again. It's using the webcam on my laptop so it may not be very good, but hey....it's a start right?

A Good Watch.

While I am a big fan of Court T.V. (Judge Judy is my favorite! Followed by Peoples Court). I occasionally get a yen for something more substantial. To the magical land of Youtube and I found this great 2 hour debate with Stephen Fry, Christopher Hitchens, and a Catholic Priest and a woman involved with the Catholic Church. It was polite, smart, with some smatterings of humor and of course there was the Q&A session at the end. 



It's two hours long, but it's a great watch.…

Why I went searching.

I came out as an Atheist around two years ago. I was very lucky that I didn't lose anything by coming out, I still have all my friends and family. I know that it confused some of my friends, and I have no idea what my family really thinks about it as we have an unannounced agreement that we just don't discuss religion. So I carried on, watching Atheist Experience, The Thinking Atheist,  and posting the occasional Facebook posts about some of the skeletons in Christanitys closet, so I should…
