What the... (Fresh Cat of Bel-Air Edition)

By Kathryn_WilliamsDecember 11, 2009
We're bored. We just spent an hour counting the number of stars in our Chicken n' Stars soup. You know what that means! Oh, you don't? Well, we'll tell you. That means it's time to troll the depths of Shutterstock for another freakishly fun photo ... More  →

Six Reasons to Go Naked

By Kathryn_WilliamsDecember 9, 2009
No, we don't mean naked naked, although that would lead to some interesting high school assemblies. We mean letting your face go nude, all footloose and makeup-free like. If you're anything like us, the most annoying part of your day, after being pried out of ... More  →

What the... (Easter Bunny Edition)

By Kathryn_WilliamsDecember 2, 2009
A couple weeks ago (before we were temporarily disabled by postprandial Thanksgiving somnolence, i.e., nappy time after too much turkey), we let you in on one of the top secret, magical ingredients of a SparkLife post: the Shutterstock image. We have a love-hate relationship with this ... More  →

As we enter the holiday season, we are once again faced with the unavoidable reality that our families are weird. And not just weird; they put the "fun" in "dysfunctional." It was Leo Tolstoy who said, "All happy families resemble one another; every unhappy family is ... More  →

By Kathryn_WilliamsNovember 20, 2009
A few months ago, we explored the topic of summer jobs. But what about the other nine months of the year? Speaking of nine months, what about babies? Speaking of babies, what about the age-old teen career of babysitting? (And who came up with that ... More  →

What the....

Why We Love the Web, Part 1

By Kathryn_WilliamsNovember 16, 2009
Try to imagine a time before the internet. Stop looking horrified and just try. You can't, can you? The interwebs was a game changer. Sure, we could technically live in a world that didn't contain the following amuse-bouches. But it would be a sad, grim world ... More  →

Baby, It's Cold Outside

By Kathryn_WilliamsNovember 4, 2009
It seems like just yesterday we were offering instructions on how to make a gigantor homemade slip n' slide, so how is it that the weather is suddenly hovering near freezing (in some parts of the world at least)? Say it with me now: Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! ... More  →

Haiku, Fall Edition

By Kathryn_WilliamsNovember 3, 2009
Our first foray into haiku inspired so many Sparklers to pick up their own quills and ponder the meaning of life (or bread bowls) that we decided to try again, this time with fall as our inspiration. We realize that we are playing fast and ... More  →

Silliest Reasons Not to Get Vaccinated for the Swine Flu

By Kathryn_WilliamsOctober 28, 2009
Aaaand we're back! As you know, the piggy flu tore through the SparkLife virtual offices last week like a hurricane through a mobile park, felling at least two of our own and potentially more. After huddling like subhuman lumps in our germ-infested beds for a ... More  →
