things I like about cutting my own hair: *can wear pajamas *don’t have to explain to anyone what I want *no driving required things that are a pain about cutting my own hair: *makes a mess *pretty sure the back always winds up uneven Anyway, I’ve been thinking about cutting it super-super-short (like, clippers-required short) […]

internet search of the day

Saturday, April 28th, 2018

I bought paper towels at the grocery store yesterday, and it was raining, so the package got a little damp. Instead of drying it off, I just let it sit on the counter for a while instead of putting it away — which is why I ended up actually reading the package, and how I […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, April 27th, 2018

Bringing back the RAPTOR SQUAD, because I watched the trailer for ‘JURASSIC WORLD: WE ALREADY MADE THIS MOVIE BUT NO ONE WATCHED IT SO WE’RE TRYING AGAIN’ and it made me think ‘hey, weren’t there some good fics about that?’ Snow Patrol, by Macx (Third in a series, so there’s backstory, but this one is […]

I’ve been pre-weekending this week, in preparation for possibly seeing Infinity War this weekend. (Pre-weekending, of course, being the act of getting the weekend’s chores done during the week, to free up precious weekend hours for other things. It’s a careful balancing act, since pre-weekending can react poorly with the power of “done for now.”) […]

decorative doors update

Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

Four months out from Christmas, and the red berry wreath is still going strong. It has decisively taken the title of ‘longest running holiday decoration’ from the Christmas bear wreath, at least for this year. Here is the brilliance of the red berry wreath: even though it was pretty questionably matched with Easter, now that […]

mistakes were made

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

With spring finally upon us, I have been thinking it would be nice to be more active. This coincided with my workplace sharing a bunch of info on how great jumping rope is for your health, and I was like ‘what the heck, I’ll give it a go.’ (Note: There was a point in my […]

car talk

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

I am embarrassed to say that I’ve had my car since 2011 (I think? around then?) and it was not until yesterday that I finally did something about the water collector. I have no idea what it’s *supposed* to be — it’s this indented plastic bit on the side of the trunk, like a storage […]

happy earth day!

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

A picture from my last walk, because I was super excited to find a green, growing plant (yay mullein!) out along the trails. (Why is the picture sideways? I have no idea.) Happy Earth Day!

caturday coupon update

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

Short version: The grocery store accepted the coupon! Heck yeah, ten dollars off! Long version: Three employees were ultimately involved in this momentous decision. I handed the coupon to the cashier and asked if I could use it. (I brought the whole flyer thing, because which part of it was the actual coupon was a […]
