Hi and welcome to our blog!*  All this prattling comes to you from twin bloggers living at two very different elevations.  Shannon lives in the mountain town of "Pinecone" where you can find Christmas lights up in May.  Jodi lives in the desert town of "Tumbleweed" where kids have dirt-ball fights and pretend it's snow.

The focus of this blog is...well...we'll have to get back to you on that one.  Until then, thanks for stopping by, and we hope that you find something here of value.  Or at least something that makes you feel better about your own life.

*Update (5/18/14): This post was written when I (Jodi) moved over to a new URL,, intending to co-author the blog with my twin sis. We had great fun for awhile, but eventually things like writing a dissertation and adjusting to a new career in psychology resulted in Shan throwing in the towel ("but not in a suicidal way"--as she states in her explanatory post). I proceeded to transfer all of the posts from Writeapy--about a year's worth--back here, to my original website, Ocean in a Cup. If you're more confused now after reading the update than you were before, so am I.
