quesrah

I am a maiden, cold and stately.
I think I am sufficiently decayed.
I am the very model of a modern Major-General.
I am a Pirate King!
I am the monarch of the sea, the ruler of the Queen's Navee.
I am the Captain of the Pinafore, and a right good captain, too.
I am right, and you are right, and all is right as right can be.
I am in reasonable health, and happy to meet you all once more.
I'm a genuine philanthropist — all other kinds are sham.
I am a little boy of five!
I am a courtier grave and serious, who is about to kiss your hand.
I am an orphan boy.
I am a very deaf old man, and hear you very badly.

  1. “They” meaning Jason and my sister, Becky, who are the people I keep around to remember how old I am, because I’m using up all my brain space trying to remember who Rutherford B. Hayes’s vice president was[2], on the off chance that it could come up in Jeopardy!, which it…

‘Chandelier’ by SiaI’ve been trying to listen to the radio to get more familiar with recent pop music.  This is ALWAYS on the radio and always in my head.

‘What’s New Pussycat?’ by Tom JonesI’ve had this in my head for about a week, since I listened to a John Mulaney standup bit about playing What’s New Pussycat 21 times in a row on a jukebox.  I keep singing it to the cat, but it always comes out “What’s new puppycat?” when I sing it.

"I didn’t really know what I wanted to do, so I went to an expensive college. I realized afterwards that it would have been better to go to a cheaper college with a goal in mind."

Excellent advice.

Your Guide to First-Time Cat-Ownership

Your Guide to First-Time Cat-Ownership

When Jason lived in Oxford, he wasn’t allowed to keep a pet in his apartment, so his cat Zoey lived with his parents.  When he moved to Iowa, Zoey moved with him, and then I joined this existing household last September.  My family had only ever had dogs before, so this is my first experience living with a cat.

I hope that what I have learned in my first ten months of cat-ownership will help you…

What (is) the Dickens?

What (is) the Dickens?

baseballenglandThe bell tolled midnight and Sarah awoke to a chill in the air and a ghostly presence in the room. She sat up, squinting at the apparition that stood at the end of her bed. “Aren’t you—“

“Yes, that’s right, Sarah, I’m Bart Giamatti, the seventh commissioner of Major League Baseball.”

“—Paul Giamatti’s dad?”

The semi-transparent baseball executive buried his face in his hands. “Sarah, that is…

Farmer’s Market

Homegrown HerkyI go to the Farmer’s Market every Saturday. It’s not because I’m shopping for anything in particular, or even taking a crunchy-granola approach to my weekly grocery shopping. It’s mostly because my husband, Jason, has become addicted to the Farmer’s Market, and as addictions go, it’s a relatively innocuous one. Going to the Farmer’s Market means that I get out of bed on lazy Saturdays and spend…
