June gets a gift from Things Remembered

When I was in high school, I fell desperately in love for the first time. The person I loved was not remotely named Giovanni Leftwich, but years ago I put him in a random name generator to blog about him, and have called him that here ever since because it's an excellent, excellent name. GL … Continue reading June gets a gift from Things Remembered

Weird stuff from yesterday (or, “Linenette”)

Cardinal and I went to a bunch of secondhand stores yesterday. I totally want these. I love old religious images, for some reason. Plus, Jesus is rocking the Curly God Method. $65 apiece, tho. Who has that kinda scratch? Cardinal playing the glass eagle Elvis guitar. As you do. Yep. I posted this one on … Continue reading Weird stuff from yesterday (or, “Linenette”)

I’m taking a drive with my boyfriend

Coincidentally, my high school boyfriend is also visiting my hometown right now. And by "coincidentally," I mean he wrote me months ago and said, "You should come to Saginaw the week of June 17th. I'll be there." So last night Cardinal, my high school swain, came over and got me. He wanted to catch up … Continue reading I’m taking a drive with my boyfriend

An AnnNanandAmy and a June walk into a bar

Last night, I got together with an old friend. Greg introduced us circa 1989-ish. Greg had been my friend for a few years before that fateful introduction. I had worked for him for a while as a freelance copywriter, and then once we stopped working together he even asked me out. He wrote me a … Continue reading An AnnNanandAmy and a June walk into a bar

June goes outdoors, gets brutally attacked, returns to being avid indoorswoman

Yesterday was one of those harrowing days where it's extra busy. Two copy editors called in sick, and I'd already had a full day of my own work to do, so what I did was hide in the basement. I work in an old mill, so the building is I think at least 100 years … Continue reading June goes outdoors, gets brutally attacked, returns to being avid indoorswoman

June does the curly girl (on her 2C, low-porosity hair)

I titled this so that men would rush over looking for p-0-r-n. I mean, till they got to the 2C part and then they were all, ? Four or five years ago, The Other Copy Editor, fmr., said two life-changing things to me: "Have you read The Curly Girl Handbook?" and "Do you think you … Continue reading June does the curly girl (on her 2C, low-porosity hair)

It was the 3rd of June another sleepy dusty Delta day, volume 47

IT'S OUR SONG DAY! Let's say you just got here, which you haven't. Several years ago, my boss, fmr., who still works at my work and who I just photographed last week... used to get into not-work-related discussions with me that went on way too long, and one of them was about the song Ode … Continue reading It was the 3rd of June another sleepy dusty Delta day, volume 47

June gets appendicitis, dies, rallies.

Yesterday afternoon I worked from home for myriad reasons, among them that I had intense thinking to do and I find that hard to do in my all-open, all the time, PBS-fundraiser-call-center open floor plan that's open open open. So I drove the six minutes and sat in my quiet den. I like having a … Continue reading June gets appendicitis, dies, rallies.
