    You'd never know by looking at this pic that shortly after it was taken I thought about throwing this cutie patootie off the cliff. The #kalalautrail is one if the top ten most dangerous hikes in the world. It is not for the faint of heart nor should it be taken lightly. It is 11 miles in and 11 miles out- a total of 22 miles. It takes roughly between 1 to 2 hours to do a mile. If you're not going down a hill, you're going up one. With all that said, I was ready and gung ho. Alas, poor Chucklebutt apparently did not eat his Wheaties that morning and got heat exhaustion and uber sick. For a moment I thought about throwing him overboard and doing it myself but I realized I'd miss him too much. We have a plan for next time- start before sunrise to beat the heat. Come back in January. As it is now, the #KalalauTrail is my nemesis and remains at the top of my #bucketlist. #NapaliCoast #kauai #myectomorph

I made the house using Alice in Wonderland paper. I thought it only fitting since a cancer diagnosis definitely sends you down the rabbit hole. #cancersucks #downtherabbithole

Live Long & Prosper!

Chucklebutt and I saw the new Star Trek movie last night and it ROCKED! He wasn’t too keen on it (he has issues with JJ Abrahms) but after Leonard Nimoy’s appearance on Saturday Night Live last week, he figured he owed it to the original Spock. Chuck is definitely an old school Trekker Trekkie and […]

The Best Vampire Movie Ever…

A couple days ago, Chucklebutt and I rented two movies. One was The Day the Earth Stood Still (Klaatu baada nikto!) the other was Let the Right One In — touted as “the best vampire movie ever.”

So, that byline is a bit misleading. It should read something like, “the best vampire movie to ever […]
