march desktop

Hey y'all.  I'm recovering from ScrapFest.  It's going to take a while, but I thought I'd do at least one semi-productive thing today.  I made a March desktop background for you.  Okay, I made it for myself, it fits my 1440×900 Macbook Pro, but I suspect it will work for whatever your screen is with a little playing around.  I'm not loving it yet, so don't be surprised if I tweak it and put it up again.

always a good reminder

When I was printing up signs the other day, I should have remembered this one.


It says nothing about flamethrowers, don't worry. 

that time again

I'm sure if you're a regular reader of the Kerry Blog, you've noticed that posts lately have been short, mostly photos or videos and there has been no rhyme or reason to them  – and that's because I have one of several mental illnesses only yet uncovered by modern psychology.  No, silly, it's ScrapFest!  

Yes, it's ScrapFest!  Megan and I have been working our behinds off to get things ready for 9am Thursday when the doors open to crazy women with scissors.  I've been a nervous wreck.  We've worked really hard and I hope it shows – I wish all of you could see it.  So, starting Thursday, go over to the ScrapFest! Chicks blog and check out what's happening.  

I'll be back blogging here next week after I've recovered.  


why the russians lost the gold

In my opinion, this is why Plushenko lost the gold to the American dude.  Shoulda done this performance.  

I've always said there aren't enough speedos in figure skating.  

sweet short film

I had a bad day yesterday.  Last night I saw this short film on and it made my day.  So sweet.  

Now, wasn't that just lovely?  It made me smile.  If you liked it (like I did), you can go here and vote for it to win a short film competition.  

olympic fevah

I love some Olympics.  In 1000 words, here is why:

This year, clowns were allowed to compete in Curling for Norway.  Move over Apollo Ohno — Norway is bringing sexy back to the ice!  I love some Olympics. 

by the way

Mardi Gras cat is ready for da Mardi Gras

Happy Mardi Gras, cats.



happy president’s day

I'd like to take a moment to wish Barack and the former presidents a happy President's Day.  

Shortly after this photo was taken, the ex-presidents sprang into action on direct orders from Barack to hunt down Al Gore and kick his ass over this global warming mess and to save a kitty stuck in a tree somewhere in Illinois.  Gore was never heard from again.  Clinton took his Grammy.

now, this is more like it

The holiday of my people!

I saw this, laughed like a fool, and spilled coffee all over my shirt. Luckily, I have many shirts and more coffee.

I love bunches of things

I use the word love quite a bit.  I know that I do this.  At times I've tried to cut back on it, but nothing is usually as appropriate as love.  It's not like hate.  Instead of hate, I often say loathe or detest or Celine Dion.  But love is, well,  love.  

So, I thought — it being Valentine's Day and all, I'd make a list of things and people and stuff I love.  

I love…
