My mom recommended I check out last Sunday’s ‘Arlo and Janis’ comic strip, and it did not disappoint! Arlo and Janis, July 15, 2018, by Jimmy Johnson 100% accurate cat representation!

apartment check-in

Tuesday, February 20th, 2018

1. I found the card! Last night, in (yes, of course) a box of other cards. And with still over a week left to go in February — truly a success story for the ages. 2. I also found a key. It is a key with a sticker on it with my apartment number, which […]

We did not go to the Kennedy Space Center, but we did go to the Kennedy Space Center gift shop in the airport. A thoroughly enjoyable experience!

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!)

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 […]

keeping up with something

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.
