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”

Christmas Movies That Have Nothing to Do With Christmas

Around this time of year, we all do our obligatory Christmas movie watching, as is mandated by holiday law. Everyone has their “must watch” list. Elf, Love Actually, The Grinch, Charlie Brown, etc. I have those as well (have you seen Arthur Christmas? Heartwarming!), but they aren’t the only movies I start jonesing for. EveryContinue reading “Christmas Movies That Have Nothing to Do With Christmas”

How To Wrap a Present

Another Yuletide Adventure First, lay out all the gifts and cue up a good Christmas or Hanukkah movie. Gather snacks, scissors and wrapping paper. Look everywhere for the tape. Why is there no tape? You know you bought some, because last year you did this exact same thing and had to run out and buyContinue reading “How To Wrap a Present”
