VGNO - I'm Older Than Pac-Man

`
Rain, rain go away. Really.

Living in the Pacific Northwest means never having to change your closets with the seasons. One day it's sunny and 75 (which is warm for us) the next day it's raining and cold. If you were to wear a turtleneck, sunglasses while carrying an umbrella no one would look at you funny. (Unless you're wearing socks with sandals, then laugh away.) I want to get my mind off of this cold wetness and blog hop at the Virtual Girls Night Out!

* The VGNO has been hopping since 2008! To join just check out this post then add your blog name & link to Linky Tools below. Click on blog links that have joined our party - it's a blog-hop! Happy VGNO! *


Time For A Cocktail!

Happy 30th Anniversay Pac-man!

Pac-Man
Ingredients:
1 oz maraschino liqueur
1 oz strawberry schnapps
1 oz peach schnapps
2 oz apple juice
2 oz pineapple juice
Directions:
Add the ingredients in the chronological "level" order (cherry > strawberry > peach > apple > pineapple), stir, and serve in a highball glass on the rocks. The glass is then garnished with a banana slice that has been cut to resemble Pac-Man's open-mouthed head!

*Side note: There is also a non-alcoholic Pac-Man drink (click here). But, it's a VGNO so I went with the liquor!



Time For Some Tunes!

OK Glee lovers, you caught Neil Patrick Harris on the show last week, right? Fantastic! For those that aren't as familiar with his singing you must, absolutely must watch Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog. NPH plays a would-be super villain, Dr. Horrible, whose arch nemesis Capt. Hammer (played by Castle's Nathan Fillion) crushes his spirit by going after the girl he is secretly in love with. Got it? It's the best!!! Here's a one great scene.

Neil Patrick Harris & Felicia Day "On The Rise"


I could go on and on about this show. It's a MUST watch! All episode's are on YouTube. Have questions about it? Just ask me.

Watch it. Love it. Sing-A-Long!


Time For A Question!

Now, for those of you who remember hangin' at a new place called the Video Arcade back in the day, you'll remember playing Pac-Man. Can you believe it came out 30 years ago?!? I remember Tron and how wild it seemed. My favorite video arcade game was Galaxia. If you spent your time in a large, dark room filled with crazy computer noises and flashing lights what was your favorite arcade game?



*OK, blog pals. Time to visit blog friends at this VGNO. Add your blog link to Linky Tools and have fun hopping around. And... if you don't have time to blog-hop tonight, that's cool. Add your link anyway & I bet you'll be able to visit friends tomorrow... or the next day... or the next day. Happy VGNO! *

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards.
