You Can Tell Rough and Final Drafts of Research Papers are Hitting When I Start Vlogging Due to Limited Hours in the Day, But What I Really Mean to Say Is ‘The Calla Lilies Are In Bloom Again’




By Jocelyn

There's this game put out by the American Girl company called "300 Wishes"--I really like playing it because then I get to marvel, "Wow, it's like I'm a real live American girl who has 300 wishes, and that doesn't suck, especially compared to being a dead one with none."


  1. I'm first! This has never happened before! Uncanny KH impersonation, btw. People make livings impersonating Elvis. Why not you?

  2. that was a most awesome KH impersonation, complete with the tics and such. bravo! now, how about the recipe?

  3. Okay, you had me at your glasses. But then BROWNIES. MIXING IT UP WITH PUPPETS AND IMPRESSIONS!
    You slay me, oh brilliant blogger, Jocelyn.

  4. You are so funny when you are losing it!

    I have to forbid my son to make brownies occasionally–and that is just the ones off the back of the Baker's Square box.

  5. Yes, very, good KH impression. I can't imagine KH baking brownies, that's just hysterical.

  6. Well, Jocelyn, you've gone and mixed things up a little yourself. This was great fun to see – and I have to say that…(can I really say this??)….I'm so glad to hear you're not high-pitched and breathy, but intellectually alto. So hard to take that other type seriously.
    Was the lovely chignon the usual you…?
    Very fun, really. I was imagining being across the table from you, with a couple of cappucinos between us. And that was a great bit of Hepburn mimicry – I loved her.

  7. Ha ha. But jeez – now I'm wondering if people who know me will only remember the ancient me after I've died.

  8. Another great Jocelyn post. So adorably fun. Re. Yamba.There is always a lot happening along the more heavily populated east coast of Australia. I think you and the family would love it if you can grab the chance. Beaches, beautiful weather in an Aussie all-you-can take- heat way, but then there's the ocean to cool off. Big bonus is that we speak the same language,the schools would be close and easy to get to,no stress for the kids there… there's plenty of space to run and ride bikes,and a very relaxed place I'd say.For vibrancy and acaedmic and intellectual persuits you'd have to travel further afield, more to the capital cities.Yamba really would be a good place to live. Many go there for holidays and retirement(fishing etc) but it's still very family-friendly. Check out Yamba Real Estate on the web just to get a feel for the place and a few more photos of surrounds. Nice to know that Australia has thrown in its hat! Hopefully you wouldn't have as much trouble with paperwork if it looks like being a contender.I'll cross my fingers for Yamba as a choice.Good luck!!

  9. Great, ummm, mix 😉 Katharine Hepburn's brownies–who knew? Not a gal I would associate with a kitchen. Excellent impersonation!
