I got my hair cut and colored at a new place today and I would show you but we let it air dry and it isn't quite dry yet so when I took a photo it looked whippoorwill-y and that is not how I want to represent my new hair to you. It's too bad… Continue reading Topamaxed Out
Can you tell I am running out of things to call Ask June? I mean, every Friday I am supposed to come up with a new name for Ask June. Does anyone have any good ideas? And speaking of good ideas, let's spray it and not say it. Who won the Love's Baby Soft giveaway,… Continue reading Ask June 612: The Revenge of Michael Meyers
In honor of my Love's Baby Soft giveaway, I Farrah-d my hair. What do you think? And by the way, I lied. What I have is a duo, not a trio, of Love's products to give away. I was hallucinating. And because I feel so bad about this, I will go to Walgreen's and get… Continue reading Once upon a time, there was one little girl who went to the blog academy
Since so many people mentioned it in yesterday's '70s post, I am inspired. I have this little zipper bag of brand-new Love's perfumes, including a bottle of Love's Baby Soft. I do not know why I have them; I think Marvin gave them to me as a joke earlier this year. The other two perfumes… Continue reading June does a giveaway
Day before yesterday, Henry got fixed. Not that he was broken, I was just trying to avoid any little Henrys, if you can imagine anything littler than Henry. I know you may be thinking, How can he possibly be big enough to be getting fixed already? Or maybe you're thinking, Geez Louise, is she really… Continue reading Nads
Remember Tickle deodorant? It was the deodorant of the '70s. I think it was exclusively aimed at teenage girls, much like Virginia Slims, Daisy shavers, and wine coolers. I totally had the Daisy shavers too. Well, and the Virginia Slims a few times. This old neighbor girl, who just found me on Facebook, told me… Continue reading Staying obsessed is nicer with a little Tickle
Don't you just want to kiss his fat tum? As you may know, the house we live in now is the first house we have ever owned. That is because before this, we lived in Los Angeles, where the average price for a home is 95 billion dollars. Because I was always a renter I… Continue reading June’s Garden
I just looked at the calendar and realized it's my grandfather's birthday. He'd be 89 today. I have these great pictures from his birthday 17 years ago, which, hello. It totally doesn't feel like 17 years ago. It feels like five years ago. Why does time move faster once you're old? Part of my job… Continue reading Happy birthday, Cluck
Today, Marvin and I went to Asheville to spend the day with my old friend Paula. Paula does not live in Asheville. She lives in Seattle. In fact, she was my housemate in Seattle. It is safe to say she was one of my closest friends in Seattle. We not only lived together, we worked… Continue reading Aysheville
Ask June is just joshing you with her title. She likes your Ask June Questions. You know what she was thinking? She was thinking maybe you could ask some personal-woe types of questions. Do you have any relationship issues, money concerns, or work troubles you wish you share with the world? Go ahead, Ask June.… Continue reading Bug June with your queries
I have so many pressing and important things to tell you that I don't even know where to begin. Should I talk about the crow and the snake, or Melanie and Totie Fields? If you are my Facebook friend, you already heard about the crow and the snake. Okay, I will start with that, and… Continue reading Tee, there is a snake in this story.
Let me ask you something. If, for lunch, you went to the salad bar at the grocery store and made you a nice salad of spinach, strawberries, carrots, broccoli and low-fat salad dressing, but then on the way out of the store you bought a huge tub of chocolate-dipped macaroons, have you totally negated the… Continue reading Nutrition information
First of all, a few people asked where they can contribute to the fund to help my Uncle Jim, and that is so nice I could just spit. Which is a lovely, feminine reaction on my part. Here is where to send a check. BE SURE TO SAY IT'S FOR JIM BLONDIN. Otherwise, you are… Continue reading Really wish I could get For the Benefit of Mr. Kite out of my head
Hey, if anyone is in or around Saginaw, Michigan today, they are having a benefit for my Uncle Jim right now. It's at the Tim Horton's on State Street until 10 p.m. A portion of anything you buy today will go toward his giant medical bill.
This out-of-focus shot of Henry and Tallulah and my shrouded legs must serve as our obligatory Henry shot for the day, as it was the only picture I got before the camera went dead and Muffin Muffin Muffin Muffin Muffin Muffin recharged it. What if this is your first time tuning in to this blog?… Continue reading The results of your analysis
Marvin won't answer me. I hear him in the bedroom, getting ready, but he is REFUSING to acknowledge that he hears me in here. I need to know if the camera is charged up so I can give you obligatory Henry picture. "Muffin?" I am shouting, over the coffee maker and Brad and Britt, the… Continue reading Muffin muffin muffin muffin
Yesterday, I went to the farmer's market. I am seriously the only person you know who goes to the farmer's market to buy processed food. I bought cookies, little snack crackers, honey. I guess honey isn't processed. I mean, it is, but by bees. That doesn't count, right? Now, why didn't the other June tell… Continue reading My ridiculous day, by June Gardens. Or, Lucy in Sky with Diamonds.
I don't even wanna hear about how many of my books are grooming-related. Maybe they're Marvin's. Did you ever think of that?
Our neighbor, Peg, bought this little toy for Henry, and could he be more obsessed with it? It's nice, though, because I have been afraid to buy him little mice or balls, lest they end up in Tallulah's gullet. Since I was busy depressing myself with poor Farrah's special last night, let's bop over to… Continue reading Ask June, Part 972
Also, on Dooce's blog yesterday or the day before--I don't know when it was. Recently, okay?--she showed pictures of her bathroom remodel and oh! It is so ugly. So people commented, and you know Dooce gets 500 comments on a bad day, and everyone commented about how ugly it was, except for a few people… Continue reading I forgot one of the things I was gonna say earlier
