Here we are, at the end of this damn year. On New Year's Eve of last year, Ned and I got into a fight, and I spent the entire night in my room, crying, with a bottle of wine.

When Captain Howdy doesn’t think you’re pretty

This morning, I was making the coffee and the cats were in their little window, meowing for food, while the dogs moaned at their dishes like I never feed them. "You know," I said, and whenever I try to reason with the pets--yes, I do--I always start with "you know." "You know, you guys have … Continue reading When Captain Howdy doesn’t think you’re pretty

June will not say something tired like haters gonna hate.

Good hair day yesterday. ...Oh, look. A pet in the background. I've been blogging now for nigh on nine years. I have no idea what "nigh on" means. Does it mean "almost"?

I'm just gonna go ahead and make "nigh … Continue reading June will not say something tired like haters gonna hate.

And the winner is, MISS GARDENS! …Wait.

It was busy as all get-out yesterday at work, which annoys. Isn't it supposed to be a good cheer, smoke myrrh, get gift baskets and enjoy the holiday week kind of a week? Dang.

June takes herself out. Nothing happens.

I haven't blogged at you because my weekend has been pretty much all statistics, all the time. In case anyone's worried sick, I'm on page 285 now. Only 215 pages to go! Kill me now. No, kill me after I've spent the money I'm earning. I'm having my house power washed with the money, did … Continue reading June takes herself out. Nothing happens.

If you liked it than you shoulda put a…oh, put this.

Today is my department's annual ugly sweater and breakfast, and I am cooking sausage biscuits. And by "cooking sausage biscuits," I mean I'm throwing some frozen sausage biscuits in the oven in 10 minutes.

The one where we’re all sorry we had freaking question day 264 days ago.

I may or may not have given Lu a Tostito the other day. Behold her crunchy face. She wants you all to know she is delighted that such a flattering photo is going on the Internet. Lu is not allowed to say "Interwebs." Nor are any of you. Yesterday I had my regularly scheduled workday, … Continue reading The one where we’re all sorry we had freaking question day 264 days ago.

Your questions answered. My textbook procrastinated.

A real grownup, such as, say, my stepfather, would have gotten up early and done today's statistics textbook proofreading already. However, hello. Have we met? I stayed up till 1:30 and just crawled out of bed. Now I'm blogging at you, and stay tuned for June's-panic-about-her-textbook posts in about a week. I know I said … Continue reading Your questions answered. My textbook procrastinated.
