something something taxes, etc.
Jules

My tiny human is sick, and that means lots of singing in my house. She’s always liked lullabies before bed, but sick time means we get to step it up. So, here’s a list of her favorite lullabies (in order) that I spent all of last night singing: Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen Sons and Daughters, The Decemberists After Hours, Velvet Underground Baby Mine, Dumbo You Were Meant For Me, Jewel Anyway, there’s my life. Sean Spicer’s Holocaust Center came in first tonight, after taking a few weeks off. I guess giving those big juicy brains a break every once in a while can pay off? IDKs swooped in for a second

Ramen looks better than it tastes
Jules

I was sick all weekend, and decided to spend my time in bed watching 60 Days In. Have you guys seen this show? No? Well…they take 7 people and stick them in jail for 60 days, and then they come out and snitch on everyone. Here are a few things I’ve decided: 1) Our incarceration system is broken 2) Ramen looks better on TV than it tastes in real life 3) Don’t do that again. Next time I’m sick I’ll stick with The Office….at least that’s funny junk food. The HBK’s took an early lead tonight and maintained it for most of the game, which was surprising because they did badly the past few weeks (beginners luck? We shall see!). The Cement

he'll wanna use your yacht
Jules

It’s April. It’s been rainy. What’s that thing they say about April rains? If you teach a man to fish then he’ll want to use your yacht? I can’t remember. Anyway…I’ve been busy this week. I planted some flowers and they’ve been alive for at least 3 days (but it’s supposed to snow again so maybe they’ll die and prove the prophecy true). I’m growing tomato plants from seeds. And some chives that smell like maybe they were supposed to be garlic. Oh, and potty training has begun at my house. So please excuse me if I accidentally end up offering you a jelly bean and straightening your pants after you return from using the facilities. Anyway.

things i googled today
Jules

Things I just googled: How to get out of jury duty How to get out of jury duty with small child How to find daycare How to fake a doctors note Will a doctor write a note for a dog bite Where to find a wolf Can you ride a wolf Wolf saddles Dire wolf saddles Can I bring a wolf to jury duty How to house train wolf Number for animal control   Anyway, enough about my search history. Can we talk about tonight? And how we had 17 TEAMS?? We broke the last record of a mere 14 teams finally! Yes, it’s spring break and some of those teams are tourists from elsewhere…but hey.

birthday!
Jules

Today was my birthday! We had cake and brownies, and the Grind staff wrote me a really nice birthday card. I am eating cake as I write this. It’s white with cheesecake mousse inside and buttercream frosting. If you played quiz at Grind, you could have had a piece too. Alas, you’ll have to wait until next year. Mainliners came in first tonight after hanging out in a really close second place all night. Ben Affleck came in a super close second, which I think they were a little surprised about. In a crazy upset, Human Centipedia came in 3rd place for once! Granted, they were missing a few players…but it was still weird. Dumb and Dumber won the trophy for

One time I worked at a deli for 45 minutes
Jules

One time when I was maybe 19, I worked at a family owned and operated deli for about 45 minutes. They gave me a shirt, showed me around, introduced me to the family (which was ALL of them), and then told me to start slicing onions for the next rush. I had never used a slicer, but it turns out it’s not rocket science. I picked up and onion, put it in the slicer, turned the thing on, and started working. You should know that I’m sensitive to onions. Wait…that’s an understatement. I’m REALLY SENSITIVE to onions. If there’s one cut anywhere within a 1-mile radius, my eyes tear up and get red. And I sneeze. So I’m standing there, slicing,

Just one more team and I win a slurpee
Jules

Just got back from Geek Bowl XI. Still coming down from the high. We had 14 teams tonight, and it seemed like nothing compared to the 212 at GB! Did I mention we had 14 teams?? I almost managed to recruit another one and break the record, but the wussed out at the last minute. Can someone please bring some friends next week so we can break it and I can finally stop complaining? Please? Anyway. Repeal and Disgrace won tonight by a whopping 89 points. We had 3 teams score perfect scores (and a couple of them jokered) on round 2…and we had one team (Not Putin Up With It, I’m looking at you) come within just one point of a perfect score on round 8, which I have never

Who cares. Geek Bowl.
Jules

I’ve found a new book to be in love with. I haven’t finished the first one yet, so don’t spoil the surprise, but it’s called “Three Dark Crowns”. I love Game of Thrones. I’ve watched them all, and I’ve read them all (Even that stupid one he came out with last that wasn’t really from the series but sort of) and the sheer number of characters with weird names in this book reminds me a lot of GoT. So....triplets are born to every queen, and when they come of age they have to kill each other to claim the throne. They each have a different “gift” (poisoner, naturalist, and elemental) and when they turn 16 it’s a free for all

Pray for Sweden
Jules

Geek Bowl 11 is coming up here in like a week and a half! Last year I was able to volunteer, but I snuck in at the last minute and so I wasn’t privy to all of the pre setup emails. I just want to say that it definitely sounds like it’s going to be a good time in Seattle. So…OMG….can we talk for a minute about how we had 14 TEAMS???? 1 more team would have broke my record. I mean, I’m not complaining about 14 TEAMS, but you guys don’t have like….one more group of friends you can bring? Anyway. Pray for Sweden came in first tonight! I’ve been rooting for them for a while since they are usually underdogs in the group…but

Kit Harrington IS hot.
Jules

In honor of Valentine’s Day (oh, didn’t you know?), here is my list of hottest celebrities, in order of hotness. (why does hottest have 2 t’s, and hotness only has one? Hottness? No….word wants to autocorrect that. The English language is stupid. Word also wants to autocorrect “word” though, so maybe it’s not that reliable)…. David Duchovney I feel like I have to include David because he’s like….my original school girl crush. Yes, I watched X-Files. Yes, Gillian Anderson is also super hot (maybe even more hot) but at the time, it was all about David. Sirius Black I

Girls love a guy who can quiz
Jules

Just sitting here reflecting on the week. I’m really trying hard not to bring King Trump into my blogs because…well….it’s just too easy. Plus, I’m getting sick of being bombarded with crap whenever I do….anything….so…I’m taking pity on all you fine readers. So what else is new? Volunteer assignments for Geek Bowl 11 came out yesterday. Yes, I will be there. No, you probably will not see me. I’ll be backstage doing what I love doing….playing on the computer and avoiding people and responsibilities. But, if you let me know you’re going (and your team name) I will emerge from my turtle-like state and say hello in Seattle.

Evie
Jules

So…what happened in the last week since I’ve seen you all last? It seems like there’s nothing going on in the world at all. Everything is exactly the same. No one is complaining about inauguration turnout, or tiny hands, or women being upset about things. On a side note, I am choosing to live in my own little tiny safe bubble where no one can hurt me or talk to me or take away my right to vote. How’s your week? After our first break, Human Centipedia was in first place by just a few points. Extramarital Panda Fight was in a close second (Going to need them to explain that name to me because…um…I’m getting a weird visual here), and Gummy

Women and marching
Jules

This week, The Trumpster becomes King Trump. On Saturday, women everywhere are marching to express our displeasure. I am one of those women…headed down the mountain to Denver to march. Do I think it’s going to make a difference? No. Not at all. But, I get a free tee shirt…so what the heck? Side note….did you know that if you’re not actually “under arrest” you can leave….even if you’re “being detained”? Good to know, but hopefully I won’t be throwing any TV’s through any windows (because those flat screen TV’s we have nowadays just won’t make much of a scene so who cares). It was nice to see

Avalanche
Jules

OMG 14 teams! Can I say it again…..OMG 14 TEAMS!!! So the last couple of days in Glenwood it *finally* snowed. Historically, it always snows on or near Halloween in Colorado…but this year was a big fat disappointment. It snowed on Christmas a little, but this week we’ve finally seen some winter weather. It’s been gross and weird here. So it snowed all day on Sunday and there was lots of snow on the ground and it was fun. Monday and Tuesday it’s been RAINING instead, so the snow turned to ice and slush, which all just turned to ice, and now the whole town is a big, yucky, icy mess. There was an avalanche in Vail that is currently covering the roads, so

It's 2017...stop writing 2016 already
Jules

Happy New Year! I know we’re only 3 days in, but hopefully nothing to terrible has happened to you. I rung in the new year by falling asleep early, and then staying inside all day in my pajamas on the 1st. How did I do that with a 2 year old, you ask? Easy….I kept her in her pajamas too. We watched Trolls and ate nachos. It was excellent, but hopefully not a preview of what my entire year is going to look like, otherwise my new years resolution next year will be to lose the 400 pounds I gained by eating said nachos and not moving at all. That reminds me, I think I’m going to join the rec center. Human centipedia took an early lead tonight
