Cake!

I used to be very anti-wedding. Everything about weddings seemed incredibly stupid and overdone. I was pretty adamant that should I ever get legally married, I would elope. Then I saw this cake: Upon seeing the miracles of icing one can produce with a wedding cake, I revised my statement: I would be willing to […]

Reflections on the Whole Wedding Thing

First off, this post isn’t about LEGOs or code, it’s about my personal life, so if you’re just here for the bits and bytes you can skip it. Folks may or may not know that at the end of April I became engaged to my wonderful boyfriend Chris aka RevolvingDork. I used to ask my […]

I’m Sorry Nintendo, What?

This morning Nintendo had their keynote at E3, unveiling the new 3DS. As part of the event, they had an army of models bring 3DS units into the audience, to let people get up close with the hot new hardware. Look carefully at the image. All the models are women. All of them. I looked […]

Kellbot Plans a Wedding

Folks may or may not know that at the end of April I became engaged to my wonderful boyfriend Chris aka RevolvingDork. I used to ask my mom what her dream house would be like, and she’d reply “I don’t dream about houses.” I thought this was a weird response until I started looking at […]

Best ever use of a cardboard box

I took a cardboard Uline box downstairs for recycling, and while it was patiently waiting to be taken out the kittens discovered it. And they love it. They loved the box so much that rather than take it out, I decided to convert it into a kitten gym. I taped the top shut and then […]

Anyone who follows me on Twitter/Facebook knows that our fostered kittens tend to have a stream of health problems. A few […]

Staying Awesome While You're Unemployed

I’ve never been without a job (or three) for very long, but It’s been a little over a year now since I’ve had an employer. While self-employment has its ups and downs, I’ve been doing pretty well. Looking back at the past year, I think it’s because I’m constantly moving at 1000 miles an hour. […]

Healthcare Fail.

I haven’t been listening to much of the healthcare political banter because honestly I don’t think it’s going to get anywhere. Universal healthcare sounds great, except for the fact that the healthcare still sucks. I’ve been trying to set up a doctor’s appointment with a psychiatrist to see if I have ADHD. I don’t have […]

Graduate School?

Yes, the earth has stopped rotating. I am officially considering graduate school. People who know me well know that I don’t generally advocate going for a graduate degree. I feel many students are mislead by universities regarding the value of said degrees, and many people would be better served simply getting in some real-world experience. […]

Burning Out

A couple years ago I worked at a scooter shop. Not a lame electric wheel-around-the-grocery-store thing, but vintage gas powered two-stroke oil burning Vespas. And among many other things we did there, we held a rally which had a burnout contest. If you are not familiar with burnouts, its when you manage to keep the […]
