Hrmph

Hrmph 1: I had an upset tummy all weekend, and diarrhea. I felt weak from it and called in sick today. I searched the ‘net for information about the herbal supplements, was relieved to discover that they truly are harmless but that it may be necessary to cut the dose if one gets diarrhea. The […]

Tossing my name around the ‘net

Go here to see me casually spreading my unique name around the internet. Actually, I wasn’t expecting to see my name in full. Don’t know what I was expecting. At least I won’t mind if and when Google coughs this up when someone searches for “Keera Ann Fox”. And, if you want to see more […]

Wishing it were February 29

…Because I really want a day off from everything, including Blogging (Blog365 let’s us have Leap Day off). I thought I’d feel better (again) by now, but no. Just to cheer myself up and give you more than one sentence to read, there’s this: In a Past Life… You Were: A Blind Priest. Where You […]

Bloggie Awards

(This is the sort of activity that goes good with a cup of coffee.) It’s the annual Bloggie Awards. I’m not nominated. I happen to know a nominee and so, while voting for her, I have decided to vote in all the categories. I am now checking all the nominees in all the categories, making […]

1-2-3-4-5 meme

I’ve been tagged by Sassy Spark for this meme. So here goes: Name one thing you do every day. Beyond the necessities of eating, brushing teeth, peeing, nothing. I’m not that regular. Oh, wait: There is a new one for 2008: Daily blogging! See the Blog365 in the sidebar? Name two things you wish you […]

OK, so it’s not global warming

My post yesterday may make it look like I’m saying, “Oh, no! Everything’s wrong because the world’s all heating up and stuff!!!” I’m not. I have noticed that our winters have been getting progressively milder – since the 1970’s, with a bit more escalation after we entered the 21st century – but flies in January […]

What shook loose in a brain-wracking

I don’t think I have a boring life, but I have little to report because I’m not the sort of person who has some sort of activity to do every single day. Well, I do, like writing a daily blog post, but I guess nothing I consider interesting enough to write about. I doubt you […]

Political choices

I started to get carried away replying to my own blog comments, so I had to make a decision and a link loop. I must be under the influence of: Translation: SV = Socialist Left H√łyre = Right (anything but left) Ap = Labor (left-winged, but not always progressive, as you can see) KrF = […]

Circly, not cactusy

Your Personality Profile You are happy, driven, and status conscious. You want everyone to know how successful you are. Very logical, you see life as a game of strategy. A bit of a loner, you prefer to depend on yourself. You always keep your cool and your composure. You are a born leader and business […]

Whoops! Learned something!

I read the Bad Astronomy blog, mainly because it’s fun to know the correct thing about something. Like the fact that our planet (Earth, in case you were wondering) is not the only planet to experience solar eclipses. Saturn does, too, by virtue of being so far away, that its moons appear bigger than the […]

A New Year’s resolution of sorts

I have joined something called Blog 365, thanks to Paula. The idea is, for 2008, to blog every day. If the computer is not available, write something and post it later. (Leap Day is a day of rest.) Also, if you have more than one blog, then posting to one if not the other counts. […]

A Christmas post

Every other blogger has something to say about the holiday, so I decided to, too, instead of feeling left out. First off let me say this: I wasn’t traumatized by Christmas growing up and I knew extremely early that Santa doesn’t exist. I love Christmas movies, because I love the combination of magic and inevitably […]

Facebook. I just don’t get it.

I already turned down one friend who invited me to befriend her on Facebook, and now here comes another. So why don’t I sign up so I can see what they’re up to? Because, honestly, after years of web use, there are so many places I’m registered with and ditto number of passwords to remember. […]

Now, what did I come in here for?

I know there was something I wanted to say, but darned if I can remember… What follows is blogpost padding. Read at your own peril. I re-read the book “You Are All Sanpaku” which has made me somewhat paranoid, and very curious about other people’s eyes. I’m also eating a lot of brown rice. The […]

Ack, trivial pursuit!

I’m supposed to be writing a novel. So what happens? My curiosity, as usual, gets the better of me and I end up delightedly poking around in this map and blogpost. So Rivendell was in Norway… That puts an interesting slant on things. And in other news: The Indians almost had a state. I didn’t […]

Word counter

Shamelessly stolen from Paula (who, I admit, is my mentor in all this. Bet you didn’t know that, Paula!). Now to get that percentage into the double digits (like Paula).

It’s all in Japanese

I was surfing the worldwide web and my own bookshelves, looking something up for a friend. I therefore became reacquainted with the Japanese term “sanpaku”, which means “three whites”, i.e. the whites in your eyes show up on three sides, not just two. The third is either above or below the iris. Sanpaku shows imbalance, […]

Comics nerd follow-up and some, uh, whining

I went to hear one of my favorite Norwegian cartoonists, Mads Eriksen, speak, and took a picture of him working, but that didn’t come out, unfortunately. He was sketching what was to become this: Eriksen was pleasant and humble, and he did say something about Norwegians and their attitudes to the newspaper daily comics: Those […]

Miscellaneous tests for fun

On my day off, I fully (I almost wrote “fooly”, which may not be incorrect) intend to eventually get off my butt, shower, dress and, uh, do something. You know, productive-like. Even have some podcasts and audiobooks to listen to. But until said offgetting, etc., I’m drinking coffee, and doing these (blame Paula): You Are […]
