New year, new things, 701

Happy 2009, people!

New things are afoot, including, quite possibly, a cooking/huswifery blog. If you would like to be involved as a co-/guest author or have a site you'd like me to add to that blogroll, please LMK soonest. OK, not soonest. I won't be doing anything with it 'til week after next, probz.

Another new thing: hostessing (w/the mostessing, it is to be hoped) the Portland Youth Spelling Bee. Coming a week from this Saturday (that's January 10, for the calendar-impaired among us) to Mississippi Pizza Pub. Grab yer sprogs and head on down! 1-3 p.m., words, prizes, sound effects, etc., etc.

Yet another new thing: writing trivia questions for Pub Quiz Oregon (shortly to be Pub Quiz USA). At last, an opportunity arises to turn my massive store of useless knowledge to some profit (probably the only such chance I'll ever get, barring a call from Jeopardy!).

And another new thing: goodbye Firefox, hello Chrome. The new Firefox ran so slowly and unreliably for me that I have decided to take on the learning curve of a brand-new Web browser. At this point I think I qualify as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Google.

And about the 701… the last post was #700 and I didn't even notice. Marvel at those peerless observational skills!

    I would totally sign up as a co and/or guest author.
    Although, my contributions might all add up to bitching about cleaning my house.
    Maybe that’s not the direction you want??? 😉

  4. I could be your comic relief, kind of like “Merry Sunshine” over on “Cranky Fitness.” SOunds fun.
