Happy New Year! Happy New Year from the FGHB family!!

Yes, I know, I haven’t been around much….. okay, AT ALL for the last 18 months or so. In my defense, I would like to say this has been a period of immense change in our household and I put aside a lot of things in order to keep this family functioning. That being said, things seem to be on an even keel at least for the time being, so I’m going to once again look at broadening my geeky horizons.

So, it being a new year, I’m going to make some resolutions:

1) To make a minimum of one post per day on this blog.

2) Attend at least one con this year – either Polaris or Fan Expo.

3) Convince Dylan Meconis (who I met last year – SQUEE!) to reprint Bite Me!

4) Discover one new musician, movie director, or web comic a month

5) Try one new recipe a week and cook one vegetarian meal a month

6) Start work on my steampunk costume

So, I think that should keep me busy along with all the other stuff that being a working mom entails.

Enjoy the year. It’s looking to be a good one.


Future UncertainSorry for the dearth of updates this week. It has simply been crazy in my house. For a change it’s good crazy as opposed to just crazy crazy.

The big news is that I finally have a new job. I’ve been out of work since November and it’s been very stressful around here for the last few months. At any rate, the new job begins on June 7th and I’ll be working for a major Canadian retailer right downtown in Toronto. I’m really excited about the position and I think it will be a lot of fun.

As for the blog, I’m going to try and keep it going, although I don’t doubt that my new employer will take a dim view of me blogging when I’m supposed to be working. What I will try to do, again employer willing, is to tweet news about interesting geeky developments throughout the day, and if they’re post-worthy, blog about them at night. So this means that most updates will be posted in the evening instead of throughout the day.

So, that’s the news. We’ll have to see where all this takes us. Hopefully there won’t be any major changes.

See you on the other side.

Happy Victoria Day Kids!

Queen VictoriaIt’s a holiday, so I’ll be spending time with the kids, hanging out and hopefully taking in some fireworks tonight. Have fun and play safe! See you tomorrow.

Mea Culpa

Hey everyone!

Sorry for the lack of posts over the last week.  I’ve been trying to get out from under a really rotten bout of insomnia and get caught up on my design contracts, so I’ve been concentrating on that over the last few days. I’m happy to say I’m almost completely back to where I should be and I hope to be back posting a lot more regularly tomorrow or Friday.

So, as an incentive for you all to forgive me, here are a couple of new photos of Alexander Skarsgard courtesy of Vman Magazine.
