Hi, I’m Lisa! Thanks for stopping by.

I’m a thirty-something mom and student who lives in the Silicon Valley of California. I like fast motorcycles, glamour and artifice in all its forms, and technology. Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with everything, you know what I mean? I like to learn things and then share what I’ve learned with other people.

I lost the manual when the road that I was on took several sharp turns. So now I’m here, finding things out again.

I’ve been on the internet for a very, very long time, silly aliases, a couple of Geocities pages, some purged LiveJournals, failed vanity sites and all.

I hate bellpeppers and mayonnaise.

Origins: Los Angeles, CA
Past: Minneapolis, Seattle, and Portland.

Me and Coco

My feisty little kidlet is 2 year old bundle of absolute joy who helps me to live my most authentic life. She loves shoes and cheese and will tell you about “guacamole motorcycles.”

Speaking of motorcycles, I enjoy vintage cafe racers, a few fast sport bikes and the occasional sport tourers. Check out my Instagram for some cool pics of vehicles, two-wheeled, four-wheeled and more.

Is this a “mommy blog” at times? Maybe, but I don’t know what to say about mommy blogs except that most of them remind me of minivans except for maybe Scary Mommy,The Woman Formerly Known as Beautiful, and Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess.


Full-time studies fill up much of my time with Psychology and Software Quality Assurance (SQA). I like challenges, what can I say? I’m also a recovering cynic and will freely admit that it’s kind of tough to remain positive in my thirst for knowledge in all forms. The bs does sometimes get me down but the world doesn’t stop for you, so why not try to laugh and find the funny in whatever you can?

I’m glad to be who I am and wouldn’t trade it for anything. For the past, see the History tab above.
