One Last Letter to G’ma

Monday, August 6th, 2007

My grandma passed away towards the end of last month and it’s been sort of a melancholy-sweet kind of thing. That’s like bittersweet but not so much with the badness. G’ma had been failing for quite some time and at the end I’m not sure she knew where or even who she was. Mumses said she wasn’t in pain or frightened, which is good, but she also couldn’t see, eat or move unassisted, and was on quite a bit of medication. For the past year G’ma was either sleeping most of the time or hanging around in a fog until she fell asleep which really isn’t much of a life. At least now she’s free to go hang with her friends, sibs and husband who all died before she did and give them a piece of her mind. She’d totally do that too.

Anyway, I thought I’d write her one last letter.

JSFR – Coffee coffee coffee!

Sunday, August 5th, 2007

TheMan took a guest spin at the JSFR since I had found another coffee drink to review. He’s claimed the title “Official Coffee Reviewer for the JSF” and takes great pride in his work. Go take a look see at his labor of coffee love.

Also, on an admin note, everything from 2006 onward should now be categorized. Correctly? Ahhh, well…mostly I’d have to say. There is still some adding and subtracting of categories going on but hopefully it’ll settle out in the next couple of weeks.

Woah. I just noticed that all the entries that were ported over lost their paragraph spacing. ARRGH! It’slikeI’mreviewingeverythingallatonce! I’ll be fixing that too as I putter. The other thing is that I don’t think there is a way to travel back and forth through the entries. Either I’m on crack or I’m going to have to ask TheMan to link me in some navigational links.

Oh hey you JSFR junkies, you won’t be finding any more reviews at the booniverse because…

The JSFR has finally moved to its very own blog! I’ll be posting links at the booniverse though in case you’re getting the RSS feed and are feeling teh lazy about reRSSing.

May I Show You My Blog Stats?

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007

Ho huuuuuu! I did a little blog dinking around and wala! All the “Last Year” links in May now point to the new booniverse host. Almost half way there folks. TheMan wrestled the stats page into some sort of proper reporting order so I could, if I had bothered to look at the stats before today, actually know how much my dinking distorts the booniverse hits. Maybe for June I’ll come busting out all over with some inflation numbers. Meanwhile, we noticed that there is quite a bit of the booniverse that still sends people over to the other (defunct) booniverse so I thought I might as well get my May relinking on. Hit it May!

Hotter Than A Witch’s Unmentionables.

Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

It’s not as hot out today as it was yesterday by a couple degrees but I think it’s more humid by a bazillion percent. Thus, it feels like the world has decided to bake biscuits and has set itself to preheat at 400 degrees. Yeah, I know. Wah wah but August marks the beginning of the month that sucks the most of the whole year if you live in Michigan. It even out narsts February. Hard to believe but February’s got short and a holiday to save it. August’s got nuthin.
