The Case of the Missing Cookies!

Sending Cece across the country with a few dozen of the family favorite biscotti is a very dangerous proposition!    Cece was asked to make the cookies and bring then across from New Mexico.  Simple enough right?The problem was though,  that Cece kept giving the biscotti away.  She gave some to friends in New Mexico, some to a friend who drove her to the airport, and some to people she met at the airport and in the plane....more

Project Nice

Project Nice started as a personal inside joke, a way to stay sane while I adjusted to British culture. I'm Southern, and when I first moved over there the reserve baffled me (nine years later only my friends knew I was American so I did adapt).

Reality tv shaping opinions?

Hulu Plus is now on xbox, and when I realized that the first 4 seasons of the Real World were available, my heart literally jumped.

I realize now that the oldest cast member was 3 years younger than I am now, but watching the show again, they STILL seem crazy smart and "with it". I almost hate to admit it, but that season shaped a lot of my opinions....more
