ICUP

I see you! Do you see me? I got contacts this weekend. I used to have them, then I ran out of them in my year of not spending, and didn't get around to replacing my contacts until this weekend. Everyone at work kept saying, "Are you wearing makeup today?" Okay, yeah, I wear makeup … Continue reading ICUP

Opine

Is it okay to let your dog chew a pine cone? Cause clearly I am letting her. And photographing her while she does it. Look how proud she is of her find. Is someone going to send this in to Animal Services and Tallulah will be ripped from me for abuse? Somebody needs to report … Continue reading Opine

Because apparently it wouldn’t be a day unless I blogged from work

When I get home tonight, remind me to discuss: How I spent an inordinate amount of time with my next-door neighbor this weekend, and it turns out she is an award-winning decorator and I need to suck up to her more. How many tomato products must one consume when one is vegetarian? What a pretentious … Continue reading Because apparently it wouldn’t be a day unless I blogged from work

Our house. In the middle of our street. Actually, it’s pretty close to the corner.

Am I the analiest wife from Analville, Analbama? Or are Marvin's towel-folding techniques unacceptable? And let's none of us do the thing where we all just feel grateful a man has folded a towel. It's as much his job as it is mine. Except that he clearly has an emotional block about it. I have, … Continue reading Our house. In the middle of our street. Actually, it’s pretty close to the corner.

No makeup, I’m a vegetarian. Is a dreamcatcher next?

Here's my radiant self, after a whole day of wearing no makeup at work. And I made a stupid mistake at work today, too, that vexed me, and someone said, "You look so drained. Don't beat yourself up about that mistake." Okay, I really wasn't drained so much as I was without eyeliner. And I'm … Continue reading No makeup, I’m a vegetarian. Is a dreamcatcher next?

In Chris

I am typing you between the bodies of Francis and Lula. Fran is on my left, saying, "Hsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss. GrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOrrrrrrrr" and Tallulah is trying to pretend she doesn't hear it while attempting to eat my peach. It's relaxing, is what it is. Today I am going to address the subject of proofreading, because people keep asking … Continue reading In Chris

Phone home. And also phone the pizza delivery place while you’re up.

I got no time to talk to you, girl. But yet, here I am. Coming at you from the NC. Tonight is the deadline for my freelance proofreading project, which I have not worked on in two days because my in-laws are here. They are currently in Tiny Town, however, as Marvin decided to torture … Continue reading Phone home. And also phone the pizza delivery place while you’re up.

Riding the wagon wheel coffee table with Clark Gable

I am home from work, and Bitey the Pit Bull is in here with me. She is spread out on the concrete floor, cause why is it always so hot in the South? You never saw Scarlett O'Hara looking perspire-y, except for the day Atlanta fell, and anyone would be sweaty if your whole town … Continue reading Riding the wagon wheel coffee table with Clark Gable

By chicken of the sea, do they mean tuna is AFRAID of the sea? Cause that would be a stressful phobia.

In Marvin's continual quest to make my brain snap, he produced an entire shoebox of pictures yesterday, thereby rendering my weekend of organizing our photos completely useless. I'll have to redo everything. However, I did find this photo, which I love. It makes me miss LA, but all our LA photos make me miss LA. … Continue reading By chicken of the sea, do they mean tuna is AFRAID of the sea? Cause that would be a stressful phobia.
