Where Are the Cicadas?

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

There has been plenty of cicada talk here in the midwest concerning the 17 year cicada. The news covered weddings being rescheduled, teachers at school were making “cicada hats” with their students to try and lessen the scariness of the bugs, and of course, the great Walter E. Smithe commercial. No sign of the bugs yet, but I did want to share the insane commercial for a local furniture chain. Yes – furniture. These guys have a great sense of humor! Read more

Ninja Warrior Marathon

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I am not sure if anyone else caught the Ninja Warrior but I was pretty worthless between that and having out of town guest here (who I also made them watch it too). This show contains so many great qualities: impossible obstacles, stories of the competitors and one really excited announcer. I am so happy I found this show! Read more

What a weekend! My family came to town to meet and visit with me and then on Sunday, we watched the Bears make it through the NFL playoffs…and they actually played an excellent game! I am quite excited to see the Bears play the Colts in SuperBowl! Great job Chicago. PS. I still do not like Rex. Read more

TiVO To Go for Mac

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Finally, as a Mac user, I can use TivoToGo, but there is a downside…it comes with Toast. (I thought I was done with Toast in the late 1990s). Still, I appreciate their effort and will most likely buy it. Read more

Hello Sony Grand Wega!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 3 Comments

This has been a very exciting month for me. Multiple people asked me what I wanted for my birthday and Christmas and since my primary focus was on my son Evan’s birth and the end of Amy’s pregnancy, I kept telling everyone if they wanted to get me something, just get my a AmEx gift card or money. With all of that money plus some of my own I decided to upgrade for a 27″ TV to a Sony 50″ Grand WEGAâ„¢ 3LCD Rear Projection HDTV. I am upgrading to a HDTV satellite in the next two weeks and am...

Random Points of Interest

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I have been completely swamped with work for the last week, but I wanted to share some random points of interest that I have stumbled upon over the last few days. I sat down to relax after a long day of coding to watch a great show on the History Channel called: Hooked: Illegal Drugs and How They Got That Way Opium, Morphine, and Heroin. This was filled with awesome tidbits of information like: The Chinese first got hooked on smoking tobacco, then they added some opium to the tobacco…then they got hooked on smoking opium. Before this, eating little... Read More » Read more

Birthday Excitement

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 2 Comments

Well, if being obsessed with Dark Shadows: The Revival was not enough, now my father-not-in-law-under-W bought me DVD collection 1 and 2 of the original Dark Shadows. I have 80 episodes in total in the first 2 collections. There are twenty-three collections in all…who needs cable? I am excited to compare the 2 series. When my sister asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I told her “all I want is for you to promise you will order the Revival series as soon as we got off the phone.” Once the DVDs arrived, she watched all 12 episodes (hour...
