Right now I skip to Time by Angelo De Augustine in this playlist, but thought I'd share the whole thing because that's what I was listening to up to about a week ago. Have a song you think I might like? Let me know in the comments! I love hearing new (and new-to-me) music! open.spotify.com/user/madgeface/playlist/2q1zBZxaFcbn39lHjS9nqi … Continue reading January-February 2020 Playlist
Spotify just sent out 2019 playlists - all the songs you listened to most in 2019 in one place. I realized while listening to it and my regular playlists that I overplayed some and am currently really gravitating toward others that I recently added, so I made a new shorter playlist cleverly name December 2019 … Continue reading December 2019 Playlist
In January, I got a message from an old co-worker asking me if I might be interested in talking to him about a position at his current company. I last worked with him in 2003 (or possibly 2002 - it was a while ago) while I was a senior technical writer for the information technology … Continue reading On Writing

She was born in early September and I put her spaying appointment off partly out of an unrealistic fantasy that I could mate our little black polydactyl with another guy polydactyl for little polydactyl kittens. Given my … Continue reading Lola B! Books! Reading!

I say official because someone is sponsoring it, but really you could start a 100 day project any time; pick a creative thing to do and do it every day for 100 days, preferably while posting about it on social media and using … Continue reading 100 Day Project, Site Move, Lil
February went by in the blink of an eye and it feels like the Ides of March & St. Patrick's Day 2018 will quickly be a thing of the past while I carry on privately writing, knitting, and doing other crafty things. I suppose I'm starting to come out of some kind of hibernation now … Continue reading Time Flies!
Hi friends! It's been a while. After Spinzilla my will to blog - or do anything with any regularity - kind of disappeared. After some reflection, I don't think my posts are working as well for me as they once were, though I may change my mind about that and go back to the schedule … Continue reading 2017: The Year in Review
I saw a tweet this morning and was instantly enamored: I would now like a marionette of myself to feed squirrels and bunnies and other small animals, and I also wouldn't mind having a movable mini-me to knit for. Just imagine how quickly FOs would fly of my needle for mini-Mandy/mini-madgeface! Think of all the … Continue reading lol Friday: Woman, Marionette, Squirrel
This guy graduates from high school this weekend and then jets off to South Korea Monday with his little brother for tae kwon do training. Here are 2 TBT pictures taken June 11, 2011, right after the boys earned their white belts (the first belt you earn in TKD), Ethan is on the left. So … Continue reading TBT: My Middle Son
