Birthday Extravaganza

It’s March, aka the month of my birth! Oh yes my friends, I am one of those lunatics who loves celebrating their birthday. And I’m very good at it. Let me show you what I mean (and feel free to take note of anything for yourself, wink wink nudge nudge). The celebrations generally being aContinue reading “Birthday Extravaganza”

I’m Jealous of Geek Culture

No one who knows me well tends to describe me as ‘normal’. (I talk about murder a lot, okay?) I’m quirky, dark, definitely a little weird, and probably not who you want to invite to a dinner party if you’re trying to impress someone. (Unless that someone is looking to debate the merits of theContinue reading “I’m Jealous of Geek Culture”

Podcast Round Up

In these trying times, when spending quality time with friends and family is pretty much impossible, I’ve been adding more and more podcasts to my list. They give the same warm feeling of hanging out with friends without requiring any participation on my part. I stay safely inside, do my dishes, laundry, whatever, and IContinue reading “Podcast Round Up”

Seed Update

The major update on the bevy of seeds I ordered to turn into freakishly beloved plant babies is that they are not here yet. But they are supposed to arrive tomorrow. In preparation for what I can only hope will be plants that gain sentience and take over the world, or at the very leastContinue reading “Seed Update”

Why I’ll Never Be a Fashion Blogger

My love of fashion died in my twenties when I realized I hated being uncomfortable. If you want to be stylish, you need to care about form over function and aesthetic over comfort, and I will never be someone who can do that. I’m the person who chooses to stay at her current job becauseContinue reading “Why I’ll Never Be a Fashion Blogger”

New Levels of Quarantine Boredom

The exciting thing about a pandemic (besides seeing how long you can go without groceries or putting on real pants) is getting to see what avenues your mind will start exploring when boredom reaches nuclear levels. For the first year of quarantine (oh my God. Year. Hold on, I need to scream into a pillow),Continue reading “New Levels of Quarantine Boredom”

I’m Freezing. How Are You?

It’s winter and I’m cold. I’m cold All. The. Time. I shuffle around my house, movement inhibited by whatever large blanket I have currently wrapped around myself as an elaborate cape/burrito, stumbling from kitchen to couch and the nest of even more blankets I have waiting for me there. At work, my space heater andContinue reading “I’m Freezing. How Are You?”

New Year, New Me… But Not Really

Ah, the new year. Brand new and just out of the packaging, un-smudged by greasy fingerprints and regret. And this year I’m going to do it all right. I tell you, gone are the days of losing multiple hours to binge watching Netflix and YouTube, a massive headache trying to knock my skull apart fromContinue reading “New Year, New Me… But Not Really”

Pokey The Murder Tree

As you may recall from an earlier post, I don’t usually get a Christmas tree. But with the world such as it is, and with a local health order forbidding get togethers with anyone outside our immediate household, my husband and I decided that maybe we would indulge in a little Christmas magic and buyContinue reading “Pokey The Murder Tree”

Tis’ The Season to Eat Your Feelings

Winter is here, we’re all locked in the house and we’re getting dangerously low on things to watch on Netflix. Add the looming holiday to the mix and there’s only one thing left to do: eat. Eat all the things. I’m a big fan of poppycock. For one, the name makes me feel whimsical andContinue reading “Tis’ The Season to Eat Your Feelings”
