June blogs to avoid seducing the cable guy

I had to work from home this morning while the repair guy fixed my TV and Internet. We haven't had TV all summer. Just now, Bewitched came on! Apparently he fixed the TV and time. Hellooooo, 1971! Do I get my owl mobile back? Cause that thing rocked '71. Once he's done, I'll walk to … Continue reading June blogs to avoid seducing the cable guy

Griff and the Shrimp-Shaped Pinata

For 120 years now, Griff has worked where I work, and his general cantankerousness has amused everyone who comes in contact with him. He has extremely strong opinions on things that don't matter. Such as, "Mango salsa pisses me off." In fact, he has so many opinions that I am going to intersperse some of … Continue reading Griff and the Shrimp-Shaped Pinata

A love story with a happy ending. I know! Weird.

One fall evening back in 2012, Ned and I were at this local theater. It's got little round tables where you can drink and watch plays, and what's a better combo than that? We were still in the flush of new love and were relatively gross at that point, but I saw the Naughty Professor … Continue reading A love story with a happy ending. I know! Weird.

June. Read by 579 people since 2015. Or not.

[Boring who-reads-me stuff below, but scroll down and I show you where it gets interesting again. I mean, "interesting" is a relative term.] Hello, all 579 readers! Okay, I know I have more readers than that. Because the last time my old counter thingie, Sitemeter, told me I had just 579 visits in one day … Continue reading June. Read by 579 people since 2015.

I’m just a mirage in your kiddie pool

Yesterday, I ended up working out for 100 minutes. I don't even know what to tell you. I got inspired. It was a dumb inspiration. My muse is an asshole. Before. I've no idea why I look like I'm preparing to be slaughtered. Except MAYBE I KNEW. After. Note the addition of a sports bra, … Continue reading I’m just a mirage in your kiddie pool

Let it go, but not in a Frozen way. Isn’t that a Frozen song? Why do I know that? Sad.

Ten days ago, I spent three hours and $165, plus tip, at the hairdresser, where I got new color that was supposed to be lighter and looks exactly the same as it did when I walked in, minus the gray roots. And just now, as I moved my hair aside to brush my eyebrows, I … Continue reading Let it go, but not in a Frozen way. Isn’t that a Frozen song? Why do I know that? Sad.

June talks about food a lot, but is not on the MaryJane, she swears

We just got a new toaster and butter dish, and I have a collection of vintage slips. I was wearing my coral slip--in which I look fetching if you ask me--Sunday morning when I went out to get the paper and got a brilliant idea. I ran in and grabbed the butter dish and held … Continue reading June talks about food a lot, but is not on the MaryJane, she swears
