Currently…in May 2014

FEELING:  Overwhelmed and charmless.  I’m so tired of dealing with people.  People are stupid and aggravating!  I just want to be quiet and keep to myself.  I’m also exhausted and have a great, hacking cough that I can’t seem to shake.  WATCHING: Just as RuPaul’s Drag Race is winding down, a new season of Louie…

Jacket Remodel

This is a story of having nothing to lose. So I pulled this jacket out of a Lost & Found bin.  It had been there a REALLY long time and basically, nobody was going to come back for it.  I called dibs.  It’s a children’s XL jacket but I liked the material of it and…

Speaking of Saturday…

I haven’t been blogging every day and I miss it!  My computer charge cord was supposed to be delivered yesterday, but thanks to the gross incompetence of the UPS, I have to pay a convenience fee (HA!) and wait an additional week for delivery.  I have no idea how anyone gets packages with UPS.  Unless…

Like my bracelet?  I made it!  I’ve been just slightly obsessed with…
