Running sucks.

Okay, that may be a little harsh. But I hate running, I always have. Running the mile in gym class in high school was miserable, despite being skinny and actually having the endurance of a 16-year-old. And it always seemed the running had to happen outside, in November when it's just getting to be cold… Continue reading Running sucks.

A little over 10 years ago, I stumbled upon a site that connected people from all over the world. Not MySpace, not Facebook, but a modern day pen pal type site with an old school twist....mailing postcards. Postcrossing is a site where you can send and receive postcards all over the world.

Books and Brews Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

A Game I Love: Elder Sign

One of my favorite types of tabletop games to play are cooperative games. Co-op games are designed for players to play against the game itself and team up to beat the game. As Evil Husband and I focus on two player games, co-op games help break up the monotony of always playing against each other. … Continue reading A Game I Love: Elder Sign
