For the last two days at work, I've dedicated self to one very detailed project, punctuated by nerve-wracking, "How's it going?" emails that are nerve-wracking, did I mention? Anyway, that's what I've been up to, and I do enjoy one long detailed project, actually. I find it sort of soothing. But after 16 hours, I … Continue reading Down with OPP
I have such exciting news: I accidentally bought a Stouffer's frozen dinner when I got my Lean Cuisines last weekend. Boo Yay! I just discovered it last night when I reached in and grabbed one indifferently. Abra-abra-cadabra. I'm gonna reach out and grab ya. (You are welcome.) If you're not an aficionado of the frozen … Continue reading The Archie-ean era
Last night, Edsel and I did our usual routine, as he greatly enjoys a routine. Before dinner, we chased Blu about 159 times. You need two Blus for this game, because otherwise he won't give the one in his lips back to you. hay. it nother Blu! It's weird that I happened to take pictures … Continue reading Old Yeller
I just had a rushed, fairly disappointing lunch of Lean Cuisine spaghetti and some sautéed spinach, and really, I don't see how Lean Cuisine spaghetti could be anything BUT disappointing, but I am broke and here's why. My little black foster kitten is sick, and I keep spending money on food and different food and … Continue reading Lean times
My little foster kitten isn't doing so well. Further reports as developments warrant.
By the time you read this, two things will have happened. It will officially be my eight-year anniversary at work, and Barry our mail room guy will have retired. He came by my desk singing, "The party's over" because this was his last delivery, ever. Naturally I had to capture the moment on ... not … Continue reading What the fork.
I know that normally I write you several hours earlier than this, but I had a work thing that was vexing me and making me anxious, so at about 7:30 this morning I got on my work laptop, not literally, and commenced to working. I just finished the thing I was working on, then ate … Continue reading Without list
The good thing about being a not-religious person in the South is that Sunday mornings are great for getting stuff done. Cart situation. Weird readers will note the time I took a picture at this same locale, before snow was to arrive, and there were zero carts here. "June?" I'd just finished snapping a photo … Continue reading Wild sugar
When I saw that life coach, he told me there technically is no such thing as stress. We just react to things and GET stressed. If we change our reaction, we could, in truth, not have stress at all. Hunh. I was dreaming about some large murder woman chasing me at 5:38 this morning (I … Continue reading My harrowing morning thus far
I went to the beach. The only shoes I packed. My coworker Lottie Blanco, and her wife, Lottie Blanco, got a beach house on an island for a week, and invited friends to come along.

I know it's weird I'm writing on a Sunday, especially on a national holiday, but if you stop twisting your hankie in shock, you'll see there's a logical explanation. You'll be at peace. Smoking your peace pipe. What was in a peace pipe? Was it the maryjane? Or just regular tobacco that you can buy … Continue reading She is risen. She is making coffee.
If you'll recall from your Big Book of June events, I said yesterday that I would not refer to those smallish mammals anymore. You know the ones. The ones with nine lives and Fancy Feast. And heaven knows I'm a woman of my word. Heaven knows I have lots else going on. My life is … Continue reading [redacted]
Does it drive you berserk that there's always something on your phone/computer that needs updating? "Would you like to update now?" No, I'd like you to go fuck yourself, you dramatic motherfucker. You do NOT need updating. You just got updated last week. Now this is starting to sound like my marriage, fmr. Anyway, I … Continue reading Midnight. Not a sound on the pavement.
I've been up for an hour and a half and I haven't showered or had coffee yet. Whose cockamamie idea was it to have this indoor farm? Last night, I bansheed home from work to feed the foster kitten, and after I was done with that I was boiling his bottle and cleaning the litter … Continue reading June talks about cats. Waaaat?
On Friday, I was at work when my phone rang. My phone rings so rarely, and when it does it's usually "credit card services" letting me know "there's nothing wrong with my account" but that I can get a "zero-interest-rate" deal if I press 1. They seem immune to me telling them to go away. … Continue reading The one where Hulk just finally turns off his computer and walks away forever.
I bought Food Lion–brand French Roast this week. It was less than half the price of my usual brand, which is Starbucks French Roast. And do you know it's delicious? It's just as good as my expensive kind, and I have no idea when I turned into such a dreadful bore, but there it is. … Continue reading On top of Old Smokey and everything else, I forgot a dang title
I have a Facebook page, called (Face)Book of June (it's set to private, I think, if you're looking for it). Anyway, on there, I asked, Why are people leaving fewer blog comments? I have the same numbers of readers, pretty much, but fewer comments. People said things like, "I'd have to scroll to get to … Continue reading In my white box, with black-ish moods, near the station
Yesterday, my office BURST INTO FLAMES. I love this time of year. I promise I'm 'bout to tie those thoughts together. But, really. I love this time of year. Spring has always been my favorite, but here in the South, it's glorious. Right now, the leaves are new, so they're still pastel green. And then … Continue reading Some like it hot June
I'm writing to you on Sunday night so that I don't have to scream through a post Monday morning. Despite this, I will still find a way to be late for work. So, what'd YOU do all weekend? Here's what I did. Prepare for greatness. Or, "Hunh. That's ...riveting, June." Someone gave their plants a … Continue reading DREAN
My goal was to start writing this morning at 7:15, and it's 7:15 on the dot. Am a machine. In other news, look! I thought I'd post this. hahahaha...mom not funnee The fence is coming along!
