Don’t get Madison, but I don’t Lincoln to anything in this one. Quit Reagan on me!

I'm in D.C. and I'm having a capitol time! Bah! The train ride was kind of fun. I got to sit and watch the world go by. The only part about the train is, why do other people have to exist? The old lady next to me was just fine. I had no issue with … Continue reading Don’t get Madison, but I don’t Lincoln to anything in this one. Quit Reagan on me!

In which June loses her skin

Marvin just emerged from the bathroom and said, "I can't stop releasing the hounds." Pretty. Anyway, I'm tired. I stayed up late to watch that depressing movie where Meryl Streep has the cancer and her daughter is Renee Zellwegger. The worst part of that scenario would be having Renee Zellwegger as a daughter. I took … Continue reading In which June loses her skin

Pieces of Wisdom Wednesday. Yes, I know it’s Thursday. Live a little.

Fortunately, I got home at a decent hour Wednesday night and was able to give you your results from this week's Pieces of Wisdom question. Unfortunately, everything else went wrong. Well. Not everything. The Manson family didn't bust in and write "Piggy" on my wall or anything, but it was a flusterating evening, as Marvin's … Continue reading Pieces of Wisdom Wednesday. Yes, I know it’s Thursday. Live a little.
