Reading Rainbow resurrected

Also, I like alliteration.

Remember Reading Rainbow? That show that introduced books and the awesomeness of reading, hosted by Geordi La Forge? Sure you do :P.

Anyway. You may have noticed the huge kerfuffle online the last couple days about Reading Rainbow. As in, Geordi La Forge LeVar Burton wants to bring it back (albeit not as a TV show), but instead as a classroom supplement and a web-based program (it’s already an iPad app). There’s currently a Kickstarter campaign to make this happen. (And since it hit its goal on the first day, it will happen.)

A short blogging break

You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting here lately. The reason for that is because I’ve been making jewellery.

Shameless plug time

This will be short, since I don’t always feel comfortable marketing¬† myself (you’d never know I went to business school, seriously).

Ahem. Anyway. I don’t talk about it much, but I make jewellery. I recently decided to try to turn it into a business; I signed up for a craft sale in June and have set up a Facebook page and all that good stuff.

Of course, trying to update said Facebook page is going about as well as updating this blog, so you can imagine how many photos have been posted :P. But, in case you’ve got some free time and want to look at pretty (and possibly shiny) things, visit my pages!

Spring breaking

Wow, it’s been awhile. Granted, last week was spring break for Kidlet and Munchkin, so I was busy trying to keep them entertained (which, as any parent can tell you, is like a fulltime job in and of itself).

Seriously, “Mommy, I’m bored” is a terrible thing to hear, because when they’re bored, my kids decide to invent create decorate break things. Or climb things and pretend they’re flying superheroes. (Newsflash: they’re still not related to Superman. Sadly.)
