I haven’t updated this blog in like 3 years!  So, anyway, for those following along (which I haven’t been, haha), it appears that my Silent Sinus Syndrome is starting to recur.  I created a group on Facebook so I’ll just point you all to that group.

Here’s the link to my previous blog post about my journey that has a lot of comments over the years. Silent Sinus Syndrome: My Journey


Suddenly, every picture of myself on facebook has been removed, because my husband & I dared link to my blog in them.   It’s a social media platform – we can’t link to our other social media?  That’s not what spamming is.

Facebook, I’m real. This is me: Here I am:

I will upload the same video to Facebook too, just to make the point that this is really me! 🙂

Ok, back in February of 2011, Clint & I were having a discussion about The Church. The discussion was about whether Starfish was a better album than Gold Afternoon Fix. I was saying that I actually liked Gold Afternoon Fix slightly better than Starfish. Clint said I was crazy and asked me to rate each song indiviually. It only took me almost 4 years, but I finally got the ratings done:


Destination 5/5 stars, 10/10 rating
Under the Milky Way 5/5 stars, 10/10 rating
Blood Money 5/5 stars, 9/10 rating
Lost 5/5 stars, 9/10 rating
North, South, East and West 5/5 stars, 9/10 rating
Spark 5/5 stars, 10/10 rating
Antenna 5/5 stars, 10/10 rating
Reptile 5/5 stars, 10/10 rating
A New Season 5/5 stars, 8/10 rating
Hotel Womb 5/5 stars, 10/10 rating

Gold Afternoon Fix:

Pharoah 5/5 stars, 10/10 rating
Metropolis 5/5 stars, 10/10 rating
Terra Nova Cain 5/5 stars, 10/10 rating
City 5/5 stars, 10/10 rating
Monday Morning 5/5 stars, 9/10 rating
Russian Autumn Heart 5/5 stars, 9/10 rating
Essence 5/5 stars, 9/10 rating
You’re Still Beautiful 5/5 stars, 9/10 rating
Disappointment 5/5 stars, 9/10 rating
Transient 5/5 stars, 8/10 rating
Laughing 5/5 stars, 10/10 rating
Fading Away 5/5 stars, 10/10 rating
Grind 5/5 stars, 9/10 rating

Based on that data, it turns out Clint was right. On the whole, Starfish as an album is better than Gold Afternoon Fix. Only slightly, though. 60% 5 stars, 10 rating songs on Starfish while there is only 54% of 5/5, 10/10 songs on Gold Afternoon Fix.

That said, I’m looking forward to seeing The Church play at the 9:30 Club in March!

Back in April of 2011, I started using henna to dye my hair. I constantly use henna as a verb nowadays. “I’ve got to henna my hair” “Time to henna my hair.”

I decided to share some things that I do nowadays that I didn’t do back when I first started. I seem to have the process pretty streamlined. (more…)

This Washing Machine Cleans Clothes With Plastic Beads Instead of Water

The future is now. Does this also reduce the amount of time you have to use the dryer?

And what is with all the haters in the comments bitching about picking plastic beads out of their clothes? They must be afraid of change.

Stealing Home (1988)

Stealing Home (1988)

Ca: 3/5, 7/10

Carolyn’s thoughts: I watched this without Clint. My mom has been telling me to see this movie for a few years now, and she wanted me to see it so bad that she gave it to me for my birthday. So I decided to watch it one day while Clint was at work. There were a lot of slow parts where it was just music or not much going on. I watched those parts on the fast speed or skipped through them. It was pretty good, though, but it was sad. My mom kept telling me it isn’t a baseball movie. She said people mistake it for a baseball movie based on the title and how it opens up with a baseball game, but it’s not about baseball. It’s more about coping with life, dealing with loss, finding yourself and doing what you love. It was definitely not Clint’s cup of tea since it wasn’t a comedy, but there were funny parts. I was cracking up at the scene with Appleby’s parents and the sex scene with Robin’s mom just walking through the room but being so oblivious to them getting it on right there in the living room. That was good stuff. I didn’t realize Harold Ramis was in this, and he had just died pretty recently, so it was nice to see one of his movies that I hadn’t seen before. “You had sex with my prom date!”
