Here she is, Miss Webcamica

At least you have the comfort of knowing there aren't a lot more special effects for me to be obsessed with on my webcam. I read an interesting article in Allure today, because I'm deep. It was about diet myths, and they said exercise alone will not bring weight loss. You also have to eat… Continue reading Here she is, Miss Webcamica

I have returned from Sects in the City

It was everything I ever dreamed it could be. Oh, it was good. And you know what I learned? I learned there is nothing more irritating than a theater full of yentas, like there was tonight. Goodness, we women chat. Man. Also? I learned I must, must be kept away from web cam.

Someone needs to put down the web cam.

When I was in high school, I had a regular column in our paper called I'm Irked. The three people from high school who actually read this will be sad to be reminded of that journalistic endeavor. In my I'm Irked column there was a photo of me pulling out my hair irkedly, and I… Continue reading Someone needs to put down the web cam.

We were tired

Sorry that I did not blob yesterday. Everyone here was exhausted. Tallulah goes to day care on Wednesdays -- she finally loves it. When we pulled up yesterday, she walked across me in the car to get out the door faster. At the end of the day, she comes tearing out of that day care… Continue reading We were tired

Why so tense?

Could I be feeling any more overwhelmed right now? First there is my job, which even though the real estate agent and human resources told me would take 20 minutes to drive to, actually takes 40. So I am gone 10 hours and 20 minutes a day. Then I have a dog, who has a… Continue reading Why so tense?

In which I mention many things. A myriad. Did you know it’s acceptable to say “a myriad of” and just “myriad”?

No, really. You can say, "Here's a myriad of crap for you to read" or "Here's myriad crap for ya." The English language. It's not for everyone. Ooo, hang on. That reminds me, I wrote a terse email to People Mag online, and I want to see if they responded. Crap. They didn't. For the… Continue reading In which I mention many things. A myriad.

The Voracious Knee

Well. One way to be sure to eat well is to have out-of-town guests come in. Yeesch. My stepsister and her husband came to visit us. Normally they live in LA. We took them to IHOP, cause we're classy. We took them to a minor league baseball game, because they have a black Lab who… Continue reading The Voracious Knee

I totally heart this ridiculous creature

I was unpacking, putting our board games in the attic. Because Marvin and I are among the most boring people on earth, we love Monopoly. Not only do we have the traditional game, we also have Millennium Monopoly. It has updated money, a fancy board, and they made all the game pieces up-to-date: a computer,… Continue reading I totally heart this ridiculous creature

Duck, duck…

Sorry I didn't write yesterday; it was a run-aroundy kind of a day. My stepsister and her spouse are coming this weekend, which is going to be fun for them since this house contains one chair, no table, one bed and 400,009 boxes. At any rate, I was preparing for their visit and all of… Continue reading Duck, duck…

Seriously, you guys don't know who Dylan McDermott is? Well, he's cute. You must trust me on this. Once I become Mrs. McDermott I'll put up our wedding shot.

Wait. Dylan McDermott is AVAILABLE?

Did you see Dylan McDermott is getting a divorce? Why, do you think? Is there a possibility it is because he loves me and hasn't had the nerve to tell me yet? Do you think he's secretly reading this blog? He's Tee, isn't he? I mean, I have no real proof that Tee is a… Continue reading Wait. Dylan McDermott is AVAILABLE?

Ruby Rosie Lemons

Did anyone else see that full, lemon moon tonight? Oh, it was beautiful. I know I totally sound like my mother right now. Whenever I am around my mother, she is forever pointing out things in nature. And she calls me Harry--June, which is my stepfather's name and then mine. "Oh, Harry--June, did you see… Continue reading Ruby Rosie Lemons

Too lightheaded to think of a title

Now that you've all been "blown away" by my gas-at-work story, I can move on to all the things I was gonna tell you. I couldn't blob yesterday because Marvin unhooked my computer in order to paint the concrete floor in here. This room, and our back sun room, used to be swathed in the… Continue reading Too lightheaded to think of a title

No Mo’ Mojo

I am pleased to announce that I don't have much to do tonight. Lately I've had to come home and freelance, but today either Fed Ex came to my house and picked up my package of freelance work, or someone stole it. Whichever. I still have to take life-of-the-party lampshade dog for a walk tonight.… Continue reading No Mo’ Mojo

I will NEVER want that wagon wheel coffee table

Tallulah is in the back yard, eating something dead. She picked it up last night on our walk, and she continues to chew on it. It's an Everlasting Gobstopper from the grave. I, however, had a Big Mac for dinner, so who is eating worse, really? Her food is probably fresher. Yep, that health blog.… Continue reading I will NEVER want that wagon wheel coffee table
