Just write. See what happens.

BANG Book Review: 9-Volume Bookstravaganza!

Posted on August 15th, 2013

{Tra la, this post was supposed to be finished and posted OVER A WEEK AGO. Ridonculous. Had several rough nights with congested baby, also working on E methodically testing every boundary he can think of, especially the one where he tries to get us to do his bidding by being a whine-meister. Boo, excuses.} Sooo… […]

BANG Movie Review: The Great Gatsby

Posted on May 16th, 2013

I read a high-school copy of The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald in Monteverde, Costa Rica, at my host family’s house, during a teaching internship. I also read I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings and The Bluest Eye, but The Great Gatsby was the most incongruous story in a place where the houses […]

BANG Movie Review: 42

Posted on April 25th, 2013

Watching 42, it dawned on me that, for a person who can’t hit a baseball to save my life, I have seen – and enjoyed – a goodly number of baseball movies. (The Natural, Bull Durham, Stealing Home, Field of Dreams, A League of Their Own, and Moneyball – only a drop in the bucket […]

Dilovely’s Extra Oscars 2013 + Defense of Seth MacFarlane

Posted on February 26th, 2013

Might as well make a tradition of the Extra Oscars! I know it’s two days later so in Internetland, the Oscars are ancient history. But whatever. I have this thing called a baby. She sabotages my deadlines, dudes. I do watch the ceremony almost every year now, thanks to Karissa’s parties that make it all […]

Narcissism on the Interwebs

Posted on January 14th, 2013

My husband has a love-hate relationship with Facebook. He has created and deleted his account countless times. He knows that, for now, no other social media site does what Facebook does – that’s why he always ends up returning. The part he dislikes – apart from their sneaky privacy policies – is how it encourages […]

Dear Ontario Teachers

Posted on December 12th, 2012

Dear colleagues, I know I haven’t written about what you’re going through in a long time, not since the post that unexpectedly deflowered my blog three months ago. I want you to know that it’s not because I’m ignoring what’s going on; I think about it every day. (Well – and I did have that […]

BANG Book Review: The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling

Posted on November 10th, 2012

I admit, I’ve been remiss. I haven’t been keeping you all up-to-date with the GGG book club’s choices for… um… approximately a year. Whoops. I know you have all been tearing out your hair and wailing (internally): But Dilovely, the books! Forget the rest of this drivel… the BOOKS! I promise I will rectify the […]

Acts of Kindness

Posted on November 3rd, 2012

I’ve been thinking about Kindness lately. Being nice to people. An idea not as simple for us humans as it sounds. I recently happened to read some interesting blog posts by one Miss Zoot, whose blog I found through Daily Buzz Moms, and really enjoyed reading this post about not being mean to other people. […]

Is this what it’s like to be popular?

Posted on September 7th, 2012

So, lovely Di-hards, how do you like the new look? Isn’t it pretty?? I’d like to declare a huge thank you to my big brother, Uncle Ben, a.k.a. Eupharos, for taking a nice theme by NodeThirtyThree and customizing the whole thing according to my inexperienced ideas. He’s got skillz. And he’s even going to help […]

Those Greedy, Lazy Teachers

Posted on September 3rd, 2012

When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? When I was little, I wanted to be a ballerina. After that, I wanted to be a novelist. It didn’t occur to me to want to be a teacher until later. As a homeschooling kid, I didn’t even have teachers other […]
