The best of times (Holiday Card Exchange 2016!)

  Hello! How are you? Is that a new haircut? Damned you are looking good! Somehow it’s fall. I’m not sure how that happened – the last several months have gone by incredibly quickly and now we’ve got a limited number of weekends before everything kind of shuts down for the winter. Please indulge me […]

Bix Beauty Blow By Blows five years later

Five years and two days ago, I wrote about what I’m doing to keep the rosacea demon at bay. Five years and two days later, my skin is half a decade older, but in my humble opinion, looks no worse for the wear. Here’s my current “Look at me! I’m 43!” rosacea beauty regime: CLEANSING […]

Help me pick out my IGIGI outfit for Weetacon 2014!

As you might know, I throw a little shindig every year called Weetacon. Weetacon 2014 will in fact, be the tenth year we’ve been doing this. I never in my wildest dreams thought that we’d manage to attract people to the wilds of Green Bay in March every year, but it seems to sell out […]

Longer than the line for the ladies room at a tech convention

Sometimes I think I could live in Vegas all year and still never do all of the awesome things I want to do in Vegas. For instance, I kind of want to shoot a machine gun. I’ve never seen the Grand Canyon (I think I might have flown over it once or twice, actually, but […]

Lost and found

Yesterday Esteban and I embarked upon our separate but equal trips to Las Vegas for a very neat adventure: the very same IT conference. It’s not often that our jobs have  the same venues but things melded this time (there was only one other time so far:last year’s VMworld). We work for two different companies: […]

Wendy Bix reviews the IGIGI Tatiana dress (and a giveaway!)

  This past Weetacon, we were given another chance to try out some IGIGI fashions. We had a little fashion show and there was much squealing and delight… and that was just in my living room when Suzanna and I were unwrapping all the dresses before the weekend. Seriously, though, the IGIGI fashion event is […]

Bix Beauty Blow By Blows: A Quest for Rosacea Skin Care Perfection

A few months ago, I tried a new aesthetician. She’s Russian and beautiful in an ageless ballerina kind of way. Her skin glows. She might be 34. She might be 27. She might be 59. I don’t know. But she is amazing. The first time I went to her, she sold me on simply her […]

Tangled up in Bix

My hair got caught on Esteban’s jeans. Wait, wait, back up: they were off at the time. Oh, gosh, no no no, not what I meant! So, I was folding the (fucking) laundry, a pair of Esteban’s jeans, and somehow my hair wrapped around the button on the fly and OW. What you should know […]

Schmear campaign

It is 1993 and I am a full-time college student commuting to a little community college about 40 miles from my house. Given the drive and the inclement winters, once I get to campus, I don’t leave until after my last class late in the afternoon, which means two meals at the teensy cafeteria–basically a soda machine and two […]

That which does not kill you

Everything’s changing this month! Diaryland’s user interface changed (oh, does anyone actually use this site anymore? Everyone seems to be Somebody Dot Com these days but still! It’s weird to not have the girly light blue Diaryland GUI! Also, hi, that was just a brief snippet of my day job sneaking into where it shouldn’t […]
