Part-time artist, full-time crankypants who dabbles in knitting, running, and burpees.
I read in phases. I don’t read any books for a month or two, and then I need to read ALL OF THE BOOKS! I’ll stay up way later than I should and carry my Kindle in my purse with me, just in case I have a few extra minutes to get a chapter or [...]
Tonight at work, I got the song from “Dinosaurs” stuck in my head, and now it won’t. go. away. I’ve heard that the only way to get rid of an earworm is to pass it on, so this is my gift to y’all.
I’ve been up since 4 a.m. and the only thing that’s keeping me going is a steady stream of caffeinated beverages. Clearly, I have coffee on my mind.
Is it really only Wednesday? It’s been a week of late nights and early mornings so far.
So, yesterday was quite the party, wasn’t it? Anyone stay up way past their bed time and make questionable decisions? As a Certified Old, I was in bed and snuggled with the cats at a reasonable(ish) hour.
It’s our birthday! Yay! We’re this many!!! *Holds up two fingers* While I’m tempted to post at least one “Happy Birthday” you tube video, I don’t really want this to feel like a bad A.M. radio show birthday montage. Since my .gif library is really sad and pathetic compared to many of you, but here’s a little [...]
It’s our birthday, we do what we want! And what this editor wants is for you to have your very own unicorn! The winner gets her or his choice of a small unicorn paining or sculpture, customized within reason. (Sorry, I do have a day job and all!)
‘Tis the season of falling leaves, extra blankets, and snuggly pajamas! This is also the time of year that my feet turn into blocks of ice in the evening.
I’ll be spending the day tomorrow with two lovely ladies that I shared an apartment with for two years in college. I’m sure there will be much to catch up on and a good amount of reminiscing about the ridiculous things we did and witnessed.
I’ve mentioned a few times before, but I’m a retail peon. This position has its ups and downs, but at the end of the day, it’s customer service, which can be pretty thankless. To make up for this, one of the big perks my company offers is a rather generous discount, and yesterday I treated [...]
There are some songs that you just can’t NOT sing along to. This is one of them. Let’s celebrate the week being officially more than half-over.
I met my best friend the first day of eighth grade. My family had moved a few months before, and I had to change schools. I was terrified. But in typing class, I met a girl who became one of the constants in my life for the next 20 years (which makes me feel a [...]
One of the great joys of my job is making the windows pretty. Once a month, we get up well before dawn and refresh the store. Since this only happens once a month, there’s just no adjusting to this as part of my regular schedule.
If you look up the definition of “impulse shopper” in the dictionary, I’m pretty sure you’ll see my portrait. I’m such a sucker for those pretty endcap displays. Yesterday, my tendency to try just about anything that’s reasonably priced and displayed prominently at the end of the aisle lead me to this purchase:
Brinner: breakfast for dinner. One of the fun parts of being an adult is that if you want French toast or pancakes for dinner, you can have it! Last night, it was a comfort food sort of night, and my feelings told me to make French toast and serve it with a reduction of mixed [...]
I’m sure you’ve seen the hilarious reviews of the new Bic for Her pens, but I’m such a sucker for office supplies that I HAD to buy a pack when I was at the supermarket the other day.
