The best part of 2009? All y'all all, as The Nester would say. Happy new year! See you in two thousand AND ten!
Yesterday was cold, so during our walk I made Tallulah wear her sweater. Talu humiliate.Actually, she didn't seem to mind. Until we walked past a bunch of other dogs whose parents didn't make them wear sweaters like a bunch of pansies. Normally she jumps and wags her tail and engages with those dogs, but yesterday … Continue reading I think Jessica Simpson is a big fan of wave particle duality
I'm certain you were on pins and needles, but here is my nice floor after cleaning with the Shark steamer: It got so clean it sprouted a kitten! And do you see that little white spot over by the baseboard? That's paint, and who's annoyed with the slobbeldy slob who got paint on my floor … Continue reading Shark week
[As I said yesterday, I really don't remember why Marvin created a guest post, but here it is. You'll be disappointed to read that it's really less "Marvin's side of things" and more "Marvin talks about how funny June is" which, (a), we already knew and (q), not really what you wanted. But so what? … Continue reading Marvin’s guest post
I was putting away the Christmas decorations yesterday, and I found this photo in the attic. It's one of the nine million aura pictures I had taken through the years, because I know you will be shocked to learn they were easy to come by in LA. This time my aura was orange, like Henry. … Continue reading Amber is the color of your energy
About a month ago, I suggested everybody who reads this blog sign up to do a good deed. There were so many participants that I started listing your good deeds about a week ago, and here are the rest. Good job, everyone! Every single time I am in line during this month, I have … Continue reading The rest of your Christmas good deeds
Who thinks he's hilarious that he got me a Snuggie? But I am way ahead of myself. Allow me to tell you about our Christmas Eve and Christmas day so far. Because we haven't gotten to the part where we go to the movies, which is in half an hour so I have to stampede … Continue reading Snuggie is the new Chia Pet
Henry is looking out the window again, chittering his teefs at birds. He is truly unconcerned with the shape of my blinds. Which is fine because I CANNOT WAIT to get a cute curtain there. Do you think Santa brought me a cute curtain? Aaaannnnd cue the part where my mother leaps off her roof, … Continue reading No room at the inn or at the grocery store
Yesterday, I was supposed to receive a statistics textbook to proofread, which may lead to you wonder, HOW MANY EFFING STATISTICS TEXTBOOKS ARE THERE IN THE WORLD? And why do they all need proofreading? And I cannot answer those questions. All I can say is I'm not complaining. About that, anyway. I would like to … Continue reading The one where June makes fun of her groceries
I was lying in bed last night with yet another migraine and somehow the story of Carlos V popped into my rather hurty head and I do not know why. But now I will tell it to all of you and your head can hurt. (By the way, I ran out of original Christmas coffee … Continue reading Carlos V
Nothing says happy holidays like an orange "please rescue our pets other than that black-and-white-one in the back room" sticker. I'm in the middle of proofreading a deposition, and all I can think of is all of you who took my survey the other day, who said, "I get so sad when I look … Continue reading June, who looks a little like Dame Edna, sends her holiday regards
Your faithful blogger June has just returned, and I mean just, as in I still have my coat on. But perhaps that's because Marvin insists on turning off the heat altogether when we leave the house, and it kind of kills me that he's so cheap about heat, when he continues to leave every light … Continue reading Lesbian Blitzen (This title is only funny if you read the comments regularly. I’m telling you, read the dang comments.)
Before I begin with this extremely important post, I'd like to thank everyone who answered my highly scientific survey. It was fun to hear from everyone. I particularly like the stories where someone says "My [insert name of loved one here] told me to read you, so I did." I had no idea so many … Continue reading Snow point in reading this one
Ooo, we're supposed to get a big storm today or tomorrow! I'm so upcited! It never snows here, you know. This is my third winter here and it'll be the third time it's snowed. I have nowhere to go except to the FedEx box (pay UP already, FedEx) to drop off yet another book back … Continue reading If sleigh bells were ringing, really, how could you NOT listen?
Today we are drinking from the head of a penguin. Henry disturbed. Mom drink from bird head. So, I lived through my dentist appointment, but just barely. I'm unsure if they don't numb me enough there, or if they don't crank the nitrous enough, but I am way more aware of what's going on than … Continue reading The Pied Piper of Stroms
Just because I didn't show you a picture of yesterday's Christmas mug doesn't mean I didn't TAKE a picture of yesterday's coffee mug. Francis despise you. And your caffeine addiction. Henry was obsessively fetching his magenta mouse, as per usual, and also, what looks better with a red mug than an enormous old cranky black … Continue reading Ode to Joy. I love that furniture polish.
This post is so huge I'm not even gonna show you Christmas coffee mug of the day. I know, right!? But I gathered all your holiday good deeds and listed them here, which might even be better than looking at my mug. I hope I didn't leave anyone out. You guys rock. I have the … Continue reading June posts your good deeds. A task that took her three hours. But this is not about June…
First and foremost, here is my Christmas mug of the day. Du jour of the day. When I waitressed, I used to love it when people asked what the soup du jour of the day was. I never felt superior or anything. It's hard to feel superior in a brown polyester dress that zips up … Continue reading I want you to know. I will NEVER be organized about my blog topics
Since (because) I told you how I'm drinking from a Christmas mug every morning, of which I have 752 from students of Marvin's, I thought it'd be fascinating to photograph them every day for you. Or maybe not so much fascinating as stupid. Whichever. The "since (because)" thing will only be funny if you read … Continue reading Free-range blogging
Your close personal pal June is worky today. Yes, on Saturday. I know you feel sorry for me. When I wasn't working yesterday, I was reading our book club book, Serena, by Ron Rash. I am obsessed! It's such a good book! Click on Mince Words with June over on the right to get the … Continue reading I must be brief. Not boxers. Or even boxer briefs.
