Dinosaur Nostalgia

This past Saturday I found myself invited to the rerelease of Jurassic Park in 3D. As any good 80s/90s child might, I immediately agreed to tag along. While grabbing something quick to eat, others began discussing the details of their first experience with the movie. Whether it was in theaters at a slightly too tender age, or reading the book and seeing the movie later on at home, every person at the table had a story to tell about their first time with the Michael Crichton piece. Everyone except me. Honestly, I have no idea when I saw Jurassic Park, in its entirety, for the first time. Truth...

Doctor Who Episode Guide: Season One

So you've decided you'd like to start watching Doctor Who*, and you're looking for a good way to make sure you don't miss anything. Wikipedia's List of Doctor Who Serials is a good place to start, but maybe you're looking for specific types of information, like which stories span multiple episodes. Or maybe you've had a rough day and you don't want to watch the next episode if it's going to be sad and/or depressing. In these cases, it's hard to find little bits of information without having larger plot twists spoiled along the way. With that in mind, I've created short primers for each season of Doctor...

First Time Home Buying in Ten Easy* Steps

Follow these steps exactly for a successful, quick home purchase within mere months of your wedding!** 1. Grow up in the housing market. Via osmosis (and time spent playing hide and seek during open houses), learn that this business is a tangled mass of paperwork and redundancies. Sometimes, even the people steering you through the process aren’t quite sure how it all works. Learn from your mother, the realtor, that home inspections will always turn up building mistakes and closing dates are a rapidly moving target. Learn from your stepfather, the mortgage broker, that you always keep more paperwork than you think you need: someone’s going to want...

Wisdom From Our Wedding in Six Parts

Because I love lists to the point of saving some from those halcyon days of wedding planning, it seems only fitting to make a list of lessons learned from said wedding. Without further adieu (and because I'm terrible at introductory paragraphs) I present a meandering list of lessons, in no particular order. Let People Think You're Crazy Hiawassee is two hours from where Bryan and I lived while we were planning, and originally had little sentimental attraction. We picked it to be far enough away to serve as a destination, but close enough that folks had the option of not staying for the whole weekend. This first decision introduced...

Getting Married, the Long Way Around

Bryan and I could have done the planning for our wedding in six months, or one year, or two years. Instead, we’re getting married three and a half years after our engagement. Two years ago, I would have pointed to our tenuous financial situation, our unemployment, underemployment, or even the state of the economy as the reason. It was none of those things. It was that the perfect time, place, and amount of money hadn’t appeared yet. This is the part where Present Lucy would climb into her time machine and go shake sense into Past Lucy. Since time machines haven’t happened yet, I will settle for story...

A Letter to Harry Potter

I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone during the summer of 1999, shortly after I got my tonsils taken out. My aunt bought my sister a copy; she took one look at it, decided against reading it, and gave it straight to me. I remember that it took me less than a day to finish, and naturally I stayed up until 4am to do so (that became a bit of a tradition with each new book in the series). I bought and read Chamber of Secrets shortly after, and I remember rereading the two books at least three more times before Prisoner of Azkaban came out...
