Don't you hate people who say, "See you next year!" on December 31? I have been saying it all day. I am sort of professionally annoying. So I thought I would take stock and make chicken soup, and also kind of review my stupid year. 2008 brought me my new blog, Bye Bye Pie, which … Continue reading 2008, a Year in Review
So, yesterday I went to work, which was silly because there were approximately .008 employees in the whole company; I 'fessed up to the woman whose book Tallulah ate; I had a coughing fit while going on one of my walks and I might have peed myself a little; and, oh, I didn't get nominated … Continue reading I’m a loser, baby, so why don’t you–well, don’t kill me. I’m so thin right now.
Is everybody back from vacation yet, or do I have to wait another week? I am not ON vacation, so this is boring for me. I do not like getting seven comments instead of 27, and I know everyone who regularly gets seven comments on their blogs wants to staple my nethers right now. Using … Continue reading Marvin’s Hellman’s
In all the "guess what I got for Christmas" excitement, I slap forgot about it being Friday and therefore Ask June day. Today I went on the random number chooser thingie and chose the following queries. Oh, but before I begin, we need another stern Ask June photo: Who went to the 99 cent store for … Continue reading Ask June Part Two, Electric Boogaloo
Well, Christmas has come and gone another year, and as usual I have garnered 4,952 presents. I am sorry. I am an only child. And by the way, Marvin outdid himself not only on trying to find every way possible to get all the attention himself (and by the way, I guess that stocking … Continue reading Amy Winstonhouse
Okay, I can't believe there is anyone out there who wants to read my stupid blog today, but then again I find it hard to believe anyone wants to read my ridiculous blog any day, so there you go. Happy Christmas Eve! My mother and stepfather got here yesterday and everyone is getting Christmasy. … Continue reading Ave Maria Antionette
Faithful reader Meme asked me a bunch of questions in yesterday's post, so I thought I would just answer them as today's post. Here are her questions. I do not think they count as Ask June questions: This post has caused me to do a lot of thinking, which doesn't happen often. I have a … Continue reading Answering Meme. But not a meme.
It has been a long time since I threw random photos in, so I will do that today, because The Nester recommends photos in one's blog and she gets 79 million readers a minute. I had many pressing things to tell y'all, but The Wizard of Oz was on, and it was important that I watch … Continue reading And my head I’d be scratchin’…
It is 2:34 p.m. and I am in my pajamas with my hair lookin' pretty. I certainly hope Hugh Jackman became an Avon lady and knocks on the door today. I'm BUSY. Doing HOLIDAY things. What do you want from me? But I also took time out to crown a new Commenter of the Week, … Continue reading SAHP
Well, the holidays are seeming kind of official now. For those of you who work in offices, did you have your last day today? Pretty much everyone did in my office, with the exception of ME, the NEW girl, and the OTHER new girl who similarly has no time off. I think it is going … Continue reading Wheel of Torture
I won't be ignored, readers. In what universe did I think the questions would trickle in? You asked June, and now June will answer. Apparently, all these questions have made June refer to herself in the third person. I wanted to throw in an official Ask June photo, by the way, one where I look … Continue reading June Answers
Faithful reader Catherine of Our Lady of Perfection--and by the way, she is also a proofreader and who is angry she didn't think of the blog name Our Lady of Perfection for her own self?--was waking a loved one this morning and she heard herself call, "There's muffins!" and then she thought, Oh dear God, June … Continue reading Ask June
My day is all topsy-turvy because I had a dentist appointment first thing and apparently it has driven me to use phrases like "topsy-turvy." On Barry Gibb's website, which I'm sure you all frequent as regularly as I do, he thanks his wife for going with him on the topsy-turvy ride through pop stardom these … Continue reading The cooked turkey pops up to say hi.
I say! Is it my two-year anniversary of blogging? Good show! Some of your snobbier people say beard equals weird, but I have never believed that. Hope to be hoppin' down your trail next year!
Man, how did the weekend get over with so quickly? One school play at Marvin's school, another French film, 200 hours of Christmas decorations and it's over! One of our neighbors left chocolate truffles on our doorstep yesterday with a nice little Christmas note. I like our neighborhood. Anyway, I have a query for you. … Continue reading The traditional gift is cotton. Go buy me some cotton.
Winston, on my lap today. Do you enjoy my heart pajamas? You know what was a brilliant idea? The idea that, hey, I'll just pop into Target for some Mucinex. On SATURDAY, DECEMBER FOURTEENTH. Still, it was nowhere near as busy as it would've been in LA. Ditto for the post office, whose doorstep I … Continue reading It’s beginning to look a lot like Kermis
I will be back later today to show you my balls hanging in my yard, so right there you should be rapt at your computer all afternoon. In the meantime, I have updated the Special of the Week and it was a reader who did not leave an email, so I hope he or she … Continue reading Comment of the Week
I went to bed last night at 6:43 p.m., which is the nice thing about having a cold, you get your rest. In fact, it may be more than a cold, and right there I have turned into my father. My father has to make everyone around him as miserable as he is when he … Continue reading It’s more than a cold. It’s a blogging opportunity.
And this, my friends, is what washing dry, coarse hair with clarifying shampoo will do. Warn your loved ones. Wow. So, hey, have y'all been remembering to check my comments of the week, affectionately referred to as Special of the Week, because everything here has to be pie-related? I update it every Saturday, and if … Continue reading Hooray! Hoorah! We’re on our way to the ball!
We are in for a tragedy in about an hour. I was just in the shower, which I know is sexy for you right there, and I used Marvin's shampoo. Marvin and I have different shampoo; I get mine at the salon, and I get extra-special, for-coarse-curly-huge-wavy-why-do-I-have-such-fat-hair shampoo, whereas Marvin gets his at the grocery store. … Continue reading Many balls
