Happy New Year!

Happy New Year loved ones!

(This is especially for you D- I know how you love Zooey, lol)

A few thoughts from the last couple weeks:

1.  I have some incredible students this semester--enthusiastic, thoughtful, and dedicated.

2.  My family and friends are awesome.  I had a great time in Pocatello over the holidays.

3.  The last few months, K-man and I have changed our diet/lifestyle and have been gradually losing weight and just getting healthier in general. Before Thanksgiving, my weight had hit a "plateau" (as they call it in the diet industry), which was really frustrating. During my visit to P-town I threw caution to the wind and indulged in everything.  I LOST WEIGHT!  What?!!

So I've decided this will be my diet henceforth:
--my Stepmother's delicious leftover stuffing WITH gravy
--copious amounts of wine
--Grandpa's Punch, as we call it in the Kahm family (a delicious concoction of bourbon, sprite, and maraschino cherries, amongst other things)

4. The woman next to me on the plane on my flight home made the Sky Mall catalog last close to 2 hours.  She must have read every single word in the catalog, it was incredible. She didn't even touch the in-flight magazine; you could tell she had been looking forward to the catalog for weeks. 

5.  I appreciate all of you that read my blog despite its many typos and grammar errors :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I know I've linked to Oatmeal before, but this made me laugh out loud. 

I'm off to Idaho to eat some turkey. I hope you all have a good holiday.

This has been floating around my office for a couple weeks.

It is a doctor's excuse a student gave me so he could make up a missed quiz.  I guess my student didn't realize I would have let him take the make-up with or without the excuse, but whatevs.

Just for giggles, I googled the respectable Dr. David P. Hesse.  Let's take a look at his website, shall we?

I'm all for a good forged doctor's excuse, but if you're going to go to the trouble, shouldn't it be from a doctor that treats humans?

I've had some real doozies this semester.

Whenever we visit K-man's family, I request that we make a trip to the Pittsburgh strip district--a great area with ethnic markets, fish markets, restaurants, etc. K-man's favorite comic book shop is located in the strip district, so we can usually make an afternoon of it.  The last couple of times, we also made an evening of it by dining at the fabulous Lidia's of Pittsburgh. One of our favorite dishes is her ossobuco alla Milanese. It is so amazingly delicious.  Seriously, I dream about this dish. Here is a picture of it from her cookbook:

(I hope that worked; I've never tried to embed a screen from a Google book search before.)

We have always wanted to try and make it, but it would have been too expensive to try and make as poor grad students in P-town, Idaho.

In  the past year, we have slowly checked off the necessary items/things needed for making this dish off of the list:

1.  Lidia's cookbook.  A gift from my brother!  (check)
2.  A specialty Italian store.*  (check)
3. A reasonably priced, specialty butcher.  (check)
4. A kitchen with enough room for two people working together on a very involved recipe.  (check!)

K-man did most of the work on the Ossobuco with me acting as sous-chef.  Then we switched rolls for the Risotto alla Milanese (my first try at true risotto). Here is our final product:

Sweet Jesus, it was good.  Totally worth the effort.  I think it may have been the best thing we've cooked together.

*Yes. This is where Anthony Bourdain went for a muffelata in his last New Orleans episode.

Student email of the day.

"I was in your office yu wasn't there when do yu want me come to give you my doctor note"

 That's it-- no name, no punctuation, and no indication of what class he/she is in.

 Is it really that old-fashioned of me to expect my students to treat an email to their professor differently than a text to their friends?

I get emails like this daily.

New Apartment

I'm going to show each Klimas family member's favorite part of the new apartment.

First let me show you what I hated most about the old apartment; the kitchen.  This is a picture of the kitchen in the middle of me trying to cook dinner. Absolutely no counter space.  It drove me bonkers.

Here is the new kitchen:
Not only does it have ample counter space, there is also an island with MORE counter space.  It's the perfect kitchen for someone who loves to cook.  I'm going to get spoiled.

K-man loves the walk-in shower.  He calls it his quintessential 80's movie bathroom. All he needs is the soundtrack to Risky Business.

I love the bathtub.  This thing is huge.  All I need is a walkman, a Prince tape, and Richard Gere offering me $3000 for the week.

The kitties love the fenced in porch.

Did I mention the 12 foot ceilings?
This apartment has about four times the usable space that the old one did, which is exactly what we wanted. That being said, it is a bit of a Monet (as Cher on Clueless would say).  Everything in the apartment is slightly off, for lack of a better word.  For example, every single switch plate is crooked and missing at least one screw.  The mirrors above the sinks in the (2 1/2!) bathrooms are slightly off center from the sinks. Random things like that.

I've decided it will be a good exercise in controlling my OCD tendencies.  I'll let you know how it goes :)

The oddest thing about the apartment is the bathroom in the master bedroom doesn't have a door....something we failed to notice when we toured the apartment the first time.  Now, K-man and I are comfortable with each other, but we're not THAT comfortable. We spent one night in the master bedroom and the next day moved our bed into the other bedroom.   So now the master bedroom is our office and our dressing room, lol.

Even with all the quirks, we love the new apartment and we love the new neighborhood. 

I hope you all had a good weekend!

The Walken Dead

For my Walking Dead fans.

Oh Gob.


Btw, how excited am I about the supposed new episodes?!

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

We moved!

That's right, we now live in New Orleans proper.

Pictures soon!  (as soon as the apartment is organized)

Needless to say, I've been busy.

Without fail.

When I shop I'm not a person who likes to interact with people. I know, you're shocked.

Don't try to sell me anything,  I don't want anyone following me around--I'm what I'd call a "do-it-yourself" shopper.  This is why I shop at places like Sephora instead of Nordstrom's cosmetic counters.  I've usually done my research and I know exactly what I'm looking for. I go to stores where I can find it, buy it, and leave.  I find sales-people's "suggestions" for "other products I might love"  completely irritating, so I avoid those situations altogether. (Don't get me wrong, if I had the money to try random suggestions, I'm sure I would love them.)

Once in a while, however, I need help finding something.  I'm using Sephora here as an example, but this has happened to me many places.  Sephora has clerks milling around everywhere.  They usually ask you when you first walk in if you need help and if you say no, they'll let you be.

Unfortunately, by the time I realize I need help, I've already sent every clerk to hills which leaves me in the situation of trying to hunt one down. 

Every. Single. Time.  I pick the ONE undercover security guard that doesn't know anything about the products or where to find them. They always have to get on the walky-talky radio thingy and ask for help.  Immediately six real clerks are there to help me.

So, not only have I broken my no interaction with a clerk rule, I have now taken over every clerk's attention in the entire store.

Don't worry, the irony is not lost on me.

What's that you hear? Crickets?

Hi all!  It's been a while, I know.

K-man and I did something very out of character over the weekend:  We ditched school on Friday (shhhh...don't tell),  flew to Seattle, and went to an Ani Difranco/John Prine concert with my lovely Dad and his wife!

The concert was held outdoors at a winery and it was fabulous.

Now I am playing catch-up.

--When I was in junior high, I begged my parents for a tree frog.  At the time, I don't think I realized what I'd be feeding it.  They got me a really cool colorful one and I named it Cobi after my favorite US soccer player.  The downside was I had to feed it live crickets.  I tried not to let on how skeeved I was over the crickets (after begging for the frog), but I don't think I did a very good job at hiding it.

New Orleans' answer to Cee Dub.

I was worried when I moved that there would be no replacement for Pocatello native Cee Dub's "Dutch Oven Cooking" on the local PBS.

Look, they're friends!

Fear not, I found my replacement

LOVE this guy.

I also love that I run into people around here that actually speak like that.

I've been seeing a lot of advertisements for these lately.

Now, I appreciate wanting to give someone something functional and edible instead of flowers as a gift, but what do you do with this?  Is it a gift for fifty people? Does it have some amazing chemical on it that keeps it looking and tasting fresh forever? Why not just give a fruit basket? There are just so many questions.

I have this mental picture of the recipients sitting down and eating their weight in fruit to try to avoid wasting it before it goes bad.  I also have this mental picture that no one would be able to accomplish that and the arrangement would look like this in a couple hours:

 Seriously, so many questions.

I'm turning to you, internets:  Have you ever received or given one of these? Was it fabulous?  Should I go get one immediately? Will it change my life?

Yes, I did photo-shop this myself.  Can we say I have too much time on my hands due to being stuck indoors thanks to a tropical storm? K-man said:  "My wife, ladies and gentlemen--nothing but productive."

Friday, September 2, 2011

To say it's been a bad hair day would be the understatement of the year.

Tropical storm Lee has been pouring on us all day.  Crazy.  The wind is supposed to start tonight and major flooding tomorrow.

The one good thing about the moisture is a bunch of tiny frogs have emerged on our deck!  They are so freaking cute.  They range in size from smaller than a pea to about the size of a penny.  They're too active to get a good pic, sorry.

I hope you all have a good Labor day!

Back to school Sangria.

It is hot as hell in New Orleans.  Add a marsh fire that has filled the city with smoke on top of that and it's pretty miserable.  I decided a nice, refreshing alcoholic drink was in order so I made sangria. Yum!

I also wanted to tell you all about Flip-flop wines. They are a new winery that will buy a pair of shoes for someone in need (much like Tom's shoes) for the first 100,000 bottles they sell.  In New Orleans a bottle sells for 5.97 and really, they aren't bad at all.  They have 3 white and 3 red varieties. Give it a try!

Hells bells.

Normally I'm a jeans kind of gal, but the nuns that run my school expect a certain standard in dress so jeans don't really cut it.  Last week I bought a new pair of khakis to teach in. Yesterday I wore them for the first time.

During my office hours I was grading some papers with a red permanent marker.  Are you picturing Cameron Diaz grading papers in Bad Teacher?  That's really not how I grade. Usually I use a nice friendly green pen (yeah, I'm one of those teachers).  The red marker was my only option at the time so I used it.

After putting the score on the FIRST paper, the marker inexplicably fell out of my hands and landed in my lap, leaving a red line I had to teach with for the rest of the day.  Are you friggin' kidding me?  The first paper? The first time I've worn the pants? It was a sign--DON'T GRADE RIGHT NOW (and get yourself a drink).

I figured there was no chance in hell I could get the stain out.  Well, I followed what my Google search told me to do, and it worked like a charm.

I thought I'd share the method for you:
1.  Put a paper towel behind the cloth so the stain doesn't bleed through to other cloth. (This is very important. This step wasn't included in my Google search, and I ended up with a second stain on the back of my pants.)
2.  Put some nail polish remover (with acetone) on the stain. Blot with a paper towel to pick up as much of the ink as possible.
3. Gently scrub with a tooth brush. 
4. Rinse and immediately saturate with liquid laundry detergent.
5. I let it set overnight.
6. Wash.

The stain is completely gone!

side note: For some reason, blogger published a few draft posts this morning,  sorry if it littered your readers with random, unfinished posts :(  I took them down.

Saturday brunch

I tagged along to K-man's haircut in the french quarter yesterday because I knew I could convince him to get brunch at a restaurant right on Jackson Square I've been wanting to try--Stanley. I'm so happy I did because brunch was amazing! I had the eggs benedict with fried oysters. SO GOOD. Look how perfectly the eggs are poached.

(crappy phone pic, sorry)

Afterward we went to the Faulkner bookstore down Pirates Alley.  All-in-all it was a delightful Saturday morning.

I hope you all had a great weekend!  We're back to school tomorrow. Where did the summer go?

Thursday, August 18, 2011


I just saw this on Jezebel:
According to Amazon, it's a children's book meant for kids ages 4-8.  Are you fucking kidding me?  Here's the blurb: "This book is about a 14 year old girl who goes on a diet and is transformed from being extremely overweight and insecure to a normal sized girl who becomes the school soccer star. Through time, exercise and hard work, Maggie becomes more and more confident and develops a positive self image."

The whole premise (as far as I can tell) is this girl wants to fit into the pretty pink dress her mother bought for her many sizes too small.  When she finally fits into it, her life is perfect and she's finally pretty and liked.

Talk about promoting body issues at the age of 4. Jesus.

I admit, the second sentence of the blurb sounds good and I'm all for teaching your kids to be healthy through proper diet and  exercise, but how about doing it the old fashioned way instead of relying on superficial stereotypes?  You, know- teach by example?

side note:  This reminds me of a stand-up routine I saw a few years ago where the comedian says before having children he used to judge parents in public with screaming children, thinking they were terrible parents with no control.  The punchline was: Don't judge 'til you have kids of your own...YOU HAVE NO IDEA what it's like.

Here I am being judgey-mcjudgerson.  I'm sure I'll change my tune when I have kids.

Friday, August 12, 2011


K-man and I just watched the first four seasons of Mad Men in a (ridiculously) short amount of time.  It's addicting. Here's a link to a cute comic from Oatmeal about Don Draper:

Happy Anniversary my Love!

We're staying at the Degas House (via a Living Social deal) for two days to celebrate.  It's pretty fancy.

By the way, this is as close to "scrapping" as I get.....Picasa did it for me :)

Thursday night ceviche.

I'm a huge fan of ceviche, especially on hot nights because it requires no heat to cook.  Many people don't know how easy it is to make.  This is a shrimp and scallop Mexican-style ceviche.  Here is my basic recipe for two people, keep in mind ceviche is great because you can really play jazz with it.  Really, you can use any firm white fish.

Juice from two limes.
Juice from one lemon.
1 lbs raw shrimp, chopped into bite-size pieces.
1 lbs scallops, chopped into bite-size pieces.
Half of a white onion, diced.
One jalapeno, sliced (add more/less depending on your heat preference).
One small tomato, diced.
Half of a cucumber, diced.
1/3 bunch cilantro, chopped.
Drizzle of olive oil.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Avocado for garnish.
Corn ships/tostadas for serving.

Toss the scallops and shrimp with the lemon and lime juice to coat well.  Combine with the rest of the ingredients, cover container and put in the fridge for two hours. If you want to leave the shrimp and scallops whole, it will take longer to cook.  The ceviche is ready when the shrimp and scallops are opaque.  Garnish with avocado and serve on a tostada or with chips.

Note:  I stir it every half hour or so, but I think that's because I'm OCD.  I don't think it's necessary.

How easy is that?  It literally takes me 10 minutes to prepare.

I've made many variations of this: omitting the tomatoes and cucumbers, using strictly lemon juice, using cod, etc.--Like I said, you can play jazz!

This was more than enough for K-man and me.  We had it for lunch the next day.

Hope you all are doing well!

Graffiti of the day. LOVE



I'm sure you all have seen this elsewhere, but here it is anyway. That's his mom (a teacher) next to him.

Also, if you haven't seen his full speech, watch it here.

Sunday, July 31, 2011


Two things:
1. I am *finally* back in nola after over two months in Idaho. We are now starting to prep for school and are looking for an apartment in nola proper.
2. I am officially out of the stone-ages! Guess where I'm posting this from? My droid :) I finally broke down-- we changed carriers (verizon refused to give me a deal on a phone) and got a free droid*, twice the minutes, unlimited data, and a phone that I can also use as a hot spot for $20 LESS than verizon. Isn't that crazy?

Anyway, I'll post something way more interesting soon (and more often) now that I'm home.

*it was pretty funny, we actually had to pay for K-man's bare-bones, no frills flip phone

For my Harry Potter fans.

I'm a huge fan of comic writer Lucy Knisley. She is a big Potter fan, so she's had a lot of stuff on her blog lately celebrating the new movie. 

She and her room-mate did this cute video:

Prepping for Our Wizardly Voyage! from Lucy Knisley on Vimeo.

Here is her comic summarizing Harry Potter. This link has a down-loadable high-res version.

I hope you all enjoy the movie!

First World Problems

I'm sure some of you have already seen this, but it made me giggle.

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

I know, I know. It's been nearly two weeks.

Here's why: I have banished myself to Idaho to try and finish my thesis. I've been here a month and a half and will be here another three weeks. ALL* I have been doing is working inside a cinder-block box (the office ISU has loaned me).

Anyway, I decided to take a little break and write a post I promised weeks ago.

K-man** and I went on a Banksy tour of New Orleans a while back.

Here is the map of all the places we went. Here are the pictures:

It's been so long, I don't remember the order we saw them, so I'll start with my favorite.  I like it because it feels harsher than the others.

The house was abandoned after Katrina.  The inside is completely gutted and full of graffiti.

The next pic is kind of crap because there was a bum sleeping directly in front of the art, so I didn't get out of the car.  Notice directly to the left of the shopping cart there is a pair of shoes.  There used to be more to the painting but there is a guy known as the "Grey Ghost" that went around a painted over nearly half of Banksy's art.

Here's one where Banksy is actually poking fun at the Grey Ghost.

This next one is probably considered the most famous of all the pieces he did in New Orleans.  It's been covered with plexy-glass so no one can deface it.

This one was nearly impossible to get a good picture of because it was a weird angle through a fence and there was a bad reflection on the plexi-glass. It is a stick figure that Banksy has the ghost painting over with a roller. (I almost didn't post this one, the picture is so shitty)

I love this last one because the plants/environment have become part of it.

The little girl is screaming at a rat that is now covered up by the plants.
There you go! Hope you all are well and happy.

Oh! One more thing.  If you like street art, you should watch Exit Through The Gift Shop .  It is very interesting and you can play it instantly on Netflix.

*OK, so I've been spending time with my family too :)
**I miss you K-man!  I love you.

We watched the movie Parenthood yesterday....

and this:
reminded me of a post I wanted to do a while ago.

A few weeks ago K-man and I went to a "Mad Hatter" party*.  The dress code was garden party attire with (of course) hats. This poses a problem for both K-man and me because we have gigantic heads.  Really, think about it.  Have you ever looked at our heads? They're huge.


 We ended up spending an afternoon searching for hats that would fit our heads.  Excuse me, hat companies? Women's heads are not "one size fits all".  

It actually made for a pretty entertaining afternoon.

(That's a large, folks.  Isn't K-man a good sport for letting me post this?)

My situation was identical.  We did finally find some hats that worked, but it took quite a while and a lot of stores. Moral of the story:  if you're going to throw a theme party and you want us to come, please don't require hats.  Thank you.

*What is it with hipsters and theme parties?

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

on a side note:

Bridesmaids was fantastic, as is Lindy West's review.

I find it strange that I can't stand most of Kristin Wiig's characters on SNL but find her completely charming in her movies.  I'm probably the only one who feels that way.

Happy 34th birthday Star Wars!

Oh yeah, and happy towel day.

Friday, May 20, 2011

I guess I better say goodbye.

Sorry for the lack of posts--I'm banishing myself to Idaho for over a month and am forcing myself to finish my thesis. I'll post something cool soon, I promise....oh wait, this is probably my last post, with the Rapture and all.  It's been nice blogging for you all, I hope it was somewhat entertaining ;)

Have you seen what some of these crazies have done? Spent all their money, sold all their belongings, quit their jobs, pre-paying heathens to watch their animals, etc.  *face-palm* for sure.

Tip: Don't send chatty social types to give a workshop to math people.

I attended a workshop today that lasted 7 hours.

Here's the thing, for the amount of information I actually got, it could've been done (efficiently) in an hour-- scratch that, it could have been done over a one-page email. So ridiculous. Why doesn't this company realize math people are not very hands-on? We don't need to role-play every scenario, in fact role-playing is considered a form of torture. Seriously. They might as well have been sticking bamboo shoots up under my finger nails.

I have to go back tomorrow for more torture training.

*Something you might not know about me:  I'm a huge fan of street art.  My brother influenced  me because he's always been into it.  The above is by Banksy.  Over Easter weekend, K-man and I did a Banksy tour of New Orleans and drove all over the city.  K-man's a good sport. Anyway, it was a really great way to see a bunch of the neighborhoods we'd never been to. I'll post pictures soon.

Sunday, May 8, 2011

I went to see Ani last night

and in the encore she played my all-time favorite song, Both Hands. (the video is a little corny, but it's the best version I could find on the internets)

Also in the encore she told us she had just found out she's opening for John Prine soon so she played one of my favorite songs he's written, Angel from Montgomery.

The volume is a little low, you'll need to turn it up.

Ani played the entire show solo and acoustic. AWESOME.

Tuesday, May 3, 2011

I love to teach. I love to teach. I love to teach.

Here's what I'm doing today:
Grading finals.  boo.  Lilo's even upset about it.

I miss the bugs in Idaho.

This time of year, the  mosquitoes come out in New Orleans.

This is my leg:
Both of my legs look like this.  I won't be able to wear dresses for two weeks because I don't want to look like a friggin 30-year old who came down with the chicken pocks. 

Yes, I did get bit all the time in Idaho, but at least there you can feel them bite you. You say: "hmm, I just got bit, maybe I should go inside." Not here. These bites are all from one night.  K-man and I sat outside to drink some wine in the coolness. I got all of these in the amount of time it takes to drink one glass of wine.  That's some messed up crazy-ass shit.

Moral of the story: I'm in the market for bug repellent.  Please give me your suggestions for deet-free repellent.  I know you world travelers I'm related to have to have some favorites.

Here is the other bug on my mind right now:

This is the buck moth caterpillar. These things fall on you from trees and their spines get stuck in you.  Their spines are little tiny tubes filled with poison.  Afterwards you get nauseated, dizzy, and a crazy rash forms.

Let's talk about the caterpillars in Idaho.  They are cute, cuddly, and awesome to play with. We make songs about them, do sixth-grade projects with them, and watch them turn into butterflies.

Now I'm living in a city where it is literally impossible to avoid trees and I spend my day darting around like a crazy person to spend as little time under them as possible. Luckily their hatching season is almost over.

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Thank you.

Thank you, religion, for giving my university an excuse to give me a four day weekend! Hmmm...what will I do with my time?   :)

Hope you all are doing great!  I'll have an interesting post soon, I promise.

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Apparently I'm the only one

I'm the ONLY person who found "Perfect Couples" amusing.  Why'd it get canceled to be replaced by Paul Reiser? 

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Should I be worried?

I am currently eating baked doritos for breakfast...that's how little time I have these days.

On a side note, wanna know what's happening in New Orleans right now?


Monday, April 4, 2011

A little of what has been going on...

This week was K-man's birthday week.  I'll post about that soon, but here I'm going to talk about my first Yelp Elite event.
This week was the first Yelp Elite event I've attended.  It took place at the bar at Loft 523 (a boutique hotel my brother and sister in-law stayed at when they visited us). The event was awesome.  Free food, free beer, cheap cocktails, a bunch of swag, and a ton of mingling.  NOLA yelpers are seriously awesome.

Guess who was the bartender?  Jemmye from Real World New Orleans. Most peolple didn't notice because who cares about the Real World any more? I found my true Yelp friends by seeing who recognized her.  (Yes, I AM shallow).

My friends told me later that Knight showed up after I went home and wanted to after party at a sketchy bar.

Monday, March 28, 2011

Hi everybody!

Guess what?  K-man and I got hired for another year!!  YAY!

You know what that means?  YOU still have a year to come and visit us in New Orleans.

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Update (with a side of makeup).

Sorry for the lack of posts peeps.  Here's why:  I volunteered to take over a colleague's class who had to have emergency surgery. So that means I'm now teaching 18 credits. Wow, one more class has made me crazier than a chicken with it's head cut off*.  The moral of the story? I no longer have time to post.  Things WILL pick up after April, I swear.  Don't give up on me.  I'll post when I can.

Now, the side of makeup.  I *lurv* the new Clinique Chubby Sticks.

I got the color "fuller fig," honestly though, I think all of them would be flattering.  Here's why I love this product:  it is a perfect mix of lip balm, lip gloss, and lipstick.  It is moisturizing, has a sheen, and a hint of color.  Very flattering and easy to use.  FYI: it also works great as a cream blush (I CANNOT be the first to discover this).  Seriously.  Go buy this now.

*In New Orleans on fat Tuesday there are "marching clubs" (comprised entirely of men) that go out in the morning asking neighbors for gumbo ingredients (okra, sausage, etc).  The key ingredient is a live chicken. The men then go to a yard/field, get drunk, and the game is to set the chicken loose.  Whoever catches the chicken wins and gets to cook the gumbo. How's that for tradition?

Monday, March 14, 2011

Oh yeah!

Happy Pi Day everybody!

It worked out nicely this year because this is the first day of trigonometry in 3 of my classes. I got to talk about Pi all day!
