Those of you new to the delights of communicatrix-dot-com may not be familiar with a long-ago weekly tradition, the “Searches, We Get Searchesâ„¢” feature. Of course, those of you newer to the communicatrix-dot-com family of readers might be, erm, more familiar with a…shall we say sexier version of me mining my stats for comedy gold. […]

If for no other reason than his New Year’s Challenge has gotten me to actually play the guitar again, I would love Leo Babauta forever. But in addition to being a gentle ass-kicker of the highest order and to writing the generous and excellent ZenHabits blog, Leo is also a shining example of that favorite […]

I’ve tricked The BF into watching yet another corny BBC costume drama with me. (Heh heh heh.) This time, it’s the 2005 version of Charles Dickens’ Bleak House, featuring the endearingly odd Gillian Anderson (who most famously played Scully of American television’s The X Files, and who has one of acting’s craziest head-to-body size ratios […]

This week was a banner week for crossed signals and nutty communication. A topsy-turvy week, if you will.
