If you’re not getting gel polish, you’re not really living.

Now, THIS is a Christmas mug. I've forgotten to assault you with images of my Xmas cups this year, and for that your life is sad, I know. I also forgot to close the door to Steely Dan's feeding area this morning, and Edsel is now the proud owner of dog kibble and canned kitten … Continue reading If you’re not getting gel polish, you’re not really living.

In which there are photos of my pets

It's been five weeks since my last root dying (bless me, Father, for I have sinned) and if you're anything like me (God help you) (very God-y post today), you know how THAT is. Roots for days. And because it's the stupid HOLIDAYS, which I HATE, no one is available to do anything around here. … Continue reading In which there are photos of my pets

June gives it up early. When I post this to FB, about 17 of my exes will nod their damn heads.

I'm just now forming the thought that all this time I've been feeding Steely Dan too much. I thought he was much younger, and those oh-so-easy-to-read instructions on his canned food said to feed him three times a day. But now he's seven months old, and I'll bet I don't have to feed him at … Continue reading June gives it up early. When I post this to FB, about 17 of my exes will nod their damn heads.

Working and praying and living and dying in this town

June reflects. Cause she's shiny. There's a fine line between telling the truth as much as you can on a blog, which I try to do, and exposing someone else's story. Just because you choose to tell all your shit on a website (narcissistic disorder) doesn't mean everyone else in your life is signed on. … Continue reading Working and praying and living and dying in this town

Doing Good Deeds–Check the Comments! (And scroll down to see new posts)

Till Christmas, I will keep this post pinned to the top of my blog, which means you have to scroll down every day to get that day's new post. Say "post" one more time. We do good deeds in December around these parts, and the very best deed you can do for me is to … Continue reading Doing Good Deeds–Check the Comments! (And scroll down to see new posts)

What is a “capade,” anyway? Are there ever Land Capades?

"Oh, good. It's that time of year that June makes us look at her daily Christmas cup. And also at the makeup smudges on her desk." And her beaming-up dog. Yesterday was Tallulah's birthday, but I tried not to dwell on that lest I fall into a sobfest. It was also Steely Dan's final round … Continue reading What is a “capade,” anyway?

June thinks she’s funny, screws up

There's a new guy at work, and they put him next to me because clearly they loathe him, and I was reading your most-hated Christmas songs yesterday and laughing out loud. Ell Oh Ell-ing, as they say. And by "they" I mean assholes. Seriously. When I was out there dating during my Ned breakup, any … Continue reading June thinks she’s funny, screws up
