not even on purpose

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

Okay, so there are hundreds of awesome photos from our trip, but I really love this one — check out our not-even-on-purpose matching game! Socks, shoes, backpacks — all color coordinated. (Also of note: extra leg room in the emergency exit row!)

another post about cats and tv

I get worried about the cat being bored in the winter. There’s just not as much that’s fun for him to do. (Not that he’s running marathons in the summer or anything, but looking out the window is more exciting when there’s a bunch of baby skunks out there than when it’s just a frost-covered […]

Christmas fair day!

Saturday, November 19th, 2016

Time for a little Christmas cheer — it’s fair day! (Fair is perhaps overselling it a little. But it’s Christmas-themed!) Traditionally, this is the point in my nanowrimo novels when my characters also attend some sort of event. (In at least one case, an actual identical Christmas fair. This year: a barbecue. (It’s summer.)

more trip in review!

Fun fact from our day at Epcot: I got all the way into the Mission Space building without realizing it was *that* Mission Space — the scary puking ride I’d been warned about! But, you know, we were already there. And so I cheerfully departed for the “Green Team” experience (*Andrea, being far braver than […]

Monday, November 7th, 2016

So it turns out I’ve fallen a few days behind on both posting and nano-novel-ing. One of those seems far easier to get caught up on than the other. In that spirit, here are some fun Florida vacation notes! 1. I love penguins. If you didn’t know me as a small child, you might not […]

Disney day!

Headed to Epcot. Florida v. fun. Currently ignoring my nano novel.

travelin’ Thursday

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

It’s trip day! I will be going to FLORIDA, for the FIRST TIME IN MY WHOLE LIFE! (For real, I have never been to Florida. I don’t really travel? So this is very exciting!) Also it is still November, so: current nano word count: 3368

T-minus two days

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

Still have not managed to finagle my way back *out* of spending Thursday afternoon doing a “team-building” activity. (Not even with my team! We did our mandatory team-building last week! Pizza was involved!) In other news, my cat does not agree that “because you’ll be staying with other family members in a week and a […]

Happy Fathers Day!

Thanks, Dad!

1. Called my landlord Sunday night (got voicemail, as expected). Tried not to sound freaked out. Probably sounded freaked out. 2. Took down bird feeders. While these almost certainly are what attracted the critter in the first place, still felt bad when the cardinal landed on my balcony railing this morning and looked at me […]
