The thing is, I'm never gonna care about Ugly Betty. I've seen it a few times, and after every episode I've seen, I always go, hunh. It just doesn't do anything for me. And yet on my Google home page they are always giving me articles about Ugly Betty and that American Ferrari or whoever … Continue reading A tail of Henri
Look! I got a new coffee mug at the farmer's market Saturday. It's exciting. So, yesterday I noticed Marvin had on a pair of pants I'd never seen before. They weren't big wide clown pants or long stripy pants that came with stilts or anything, they were just normal sort of brown pants, but I'd … Continue reading I’m free. Freelancing.
So last night I asked Marvin, "Do we have ice cream?" and he said, "We have ice." Okay. Is that the most depressing answer you have ever gotten to that question? Do we have any candy bars? No, but you can take the bar exam over on the next block. We have ice. Whatever with … Continue reading Ding ding ding dingding DING ding (that’s me singing Ice Ice Baby)
Yeah, I gots a Pit Bull mix for a bodyguard. I'm cool. Tomorrow morning I will actually talk about something else. I took pictures of things blooming in my yard, plus not to mention incidentally I need curtain help. I am trying not to take advantage of my close personal relationship with The Nester. Instead … Continue reading And IIIIIIIIEEEEIIIIIII Will Always Love Youuuuuuuu…
My coworker just told me that she saw a young guy checking me out as I walked across the parking lot after lunch (clearly he has a strange hair fetish, but still). I can see my wedding to Topamax now: our names spelled out in flower Kleenexes above the wedding table: June and Topamax, or … Continue reading Should I hyphenate my last name as Gardens-Topamax or just be June Topamax?
I know you don't feel sorry for me, but I just pulled on my pants and when I went to zip them, they were already zipped. Can I get engaged to Topamax?
Marvin is making me pay attention to him, so I can't post tonight. I will tide you over with this: Yes, I am obsessed. Totally. For sure.
Those of you who couldn't care less about pets will be delighted to hear that I am going to a big Farmer's Market (which probably doesn't need to be capitalized and I am kind of irking myself) with my friend the other June today, so there may ACTUALLY BE PHOTOS of something other than this … Continue reading Commento of the Weeko. You didn’t know about my fine bilingual abilities, did you?
One of us has the cute hair. I will not name names. One of us has hair shaped like Prince Valiant. I do not know what to tell you. Let's valiantly page June and see what questions she'll answer for us this Friday, shall we? Carrie queries, "When my mom and I talk about you, … Continue reading Ask Henry and June. Hey, wasn’t that a dirty book by Anais Nin?
Am at work, doing that fancy thing where I can email a post. I just wanted to tell you that apparently I have gotten a kitten for my dog, because Tallulah loves that little kitty. It is like that old cartoon with that huge dog Marc Anthony and the teensy kitten. Anyway, they are currently … Continue reading Brief update
There is someone I'd like you all to meet. This is Henry. He is six weeks old. Of course I got him. Have you met me? Henry does not yet weigh two pounds. He's a brute, is what he is. He is so purry and affectionate! We just had a nap, and I feel maybe … Continue reading Henry
Last night I hauled myself all the way out to Chapel Hill to the animal shelter there. (It's a higher-kill shelter, and I thought I should go to those to rescue.) Right when I got there, a litter of seven six-week-old kittens was arriving. There was one orange-and-white male who caught my eye. Not literally, … Continue reading Undecided
Many people have wondered if Tallulah is still harboring a grudge over being left at dog day care for four days. When I woke up this morning, she and I were spooning, her head on my pillow, her ear slung over my eye like one of those sleep masks, so I think she is over … Continue reading Is Tallulah still mad?
Let's stir up a little controversy today. What do you all think of Miss California's statements about gay marriage? If you don't know what I mean, go Google it and come back. My opinion? Whereas I do not agree with Miss California's feelings on the issue because I do believe that all men are created … Continue reading Controversy
Tallulah is NOT SPEAKING TO US. I got her from day care, and she had not seen me for four days, so I figured she'd be as excited to see me as I was to see her. No. She sauntered out of the day care room and didn't even look at me. "Well, hello, Tallulah!" … Continue reading Silent treatment
I get to go to dog day care and pick up the dog, who I haven't seen since Friday. I am so excited I could spit.
I'm back. I'm better than ever. I went to Michigan. Saw things that irked me. No. Really. They're UNIFORMS. How can they be unique? The point of a UNIFORM is to LOOK LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. Because it's a UNIFORM. But otherwise it was a fine time. I saw the fam... Okay, seriously? I know how … Continue reading Home is where I wanna be, but I guess I’m already there
I am listening to Tallulah crunch her food. It is such a festive sound, because she is so happy while she's eating. Crunch crunch crunch! I hope Marvin reads this and knows I fed the dog. Since he is on spring break he isn't up when I am and the other day we fed her … Continue reading Some say she’s from Mars, or one of the seven stars that shine after 3:30 in the morning
June Gardens has started a wish list on Amazon. You just go on Amazon and at the top it says "wish lists" and you type in June Gardens and there is the beginning of my deepest wishes. I mean, really, what if some rich person reads me every day and is just dying to get … Continue reading Wish list has begun
Do you know what I've noticed? I've noticed that sometimes I get more comments on posts where I've written two sentences when I'm at work, such as yesterday's, than when I sit here and write hours worth of entertaining paragraphs. Hunh. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? I am … Continue reading Really, a post about nothing
