but who’s counting

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

And also NATIONAL LEAVE THE OFFICE EARLY DAY! (Seriously, I didn’t make these up. I mean, someone probably made them up, but it […]

tell all the truth (but tell it slant), by susiecarter “It takes a while for Batman and Superman to work things out, once Clark comes back from the dead. Pretending to date each other in order to explain why Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent are in the same place so often? Doesn’t help as much […]

the weather trifecta

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Today’s forecast description reads: Patchy Drizzle and Patchy Fog then Cloudy (this feels like a tumblr post — tag yourself, I’m #patchyfog — but the noaa forecast for this area really does say that, capital letters and all) On the positive side, tomorrow’s forecast currently still includes some sun.

definitely going on a watch list for this

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

Yesterday I was super excited to get my new sneakers, so you might imagine my dismay when I opened up the box to see that one of them still had the security tag on it. Let me back up. Yes, I paid for them. Yes, I ordered them from a reputable company. Yes, I have […]
