Where’s Lenny Lee . . . Birthday Bash


20, 2014 |

Filed in:


Today, a special friend of mine is turning 15, and I wanted to give a shout out:

Happy Birthday

I have known Lenny (via blogging) for almost 5 years now, and it has been a privilege to be even the teensiest part of his life. He spreads sunshine wherever he goes. I only have to see his name to start grinning because that’s how powerful his influence is. He inspires me to be better. To be happier. To see the good in others. Thank you, Lenny! Thank you for being my friend!

If you don’t know Lenny, you should go meet him (he blogs HERE). Like, now. Okay, maybe like in a few minutes, because you don’t want to miss what comes next.

Lenny, just for you, because I love you that much, I have prepared a vlog. A VLOG! I’m afraid it’s hard to hear, for which I apologize, but anyway . . . ENJOY! (Seriously YouTube? You made THAT the thumbnail? *sigh*)

We all love and miss you Lenny! Please (super pretty please with sugar and a cherry on top!) come back to blogging!!

Or, as my personalized-license-plate-infatuated-self would say:  CUMBACK

What’s Your Kryptonite?

Every super hero has one. Something that trumps their amazing abilities. Because if they didn’t, the story would sure get boring fast.

Imagine if there was no such thing as kryptonite. Lex Luthor would stand no chance. Zero. And where’s the fun in that?

Anyway, I’m sure there will be people who argue with me on this, but that’s okay. Debate is good. My point in all this is to ask you:

What is your kryptonite?
Because mine . . . mine is cookies. As long as there are no nuts or fruit involved, I will fall to the power of a cookie every time. And don’t even get me started on a soft sugar cookie with just a smidgen of cream cheese frosting and sprinkles. Mmmm . . .
Everything tastes better with sprinkles.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a battle to lose.

Deep Thoughts by Janet Johnson


05, 2011 |

I know most of us are pondering our New Year’s Resolutions and setting goals right around now. I’ll get to that, perhaps on a future post.

But for today’s Welcome-Back-from-the-Holidays post I just have a simple question: 

Why is it that when Batman is caught by the bad guys, they never unmask him?

I would love to hear your theories, because I watch these episodes with my boys all the time, and this simply perplexes me.

And I’m quite certain there’s a writing lesson in there somewhere. Perhaps something about logic in our plot lines? What do you think?
