Duvet? Isn’t that a french toilet?

Awhile back, I purchased a new down comforter for our bed, but I had been putting off using it because I hate putting new duvets on thick comforters. It’s a lot of work when you’ve got a king size bed, you know? So we’ve been limping along with our little mostly empty down comforter which […]

Osama Bin Laden was the old man running the amusement park

It really bothers me that I cannot find actual Doc Marten sanctioned Doc Marten shoelaces for my winter shoes. Two years ago, one of the laces broke and I limped through winter tying this tiny little lace. Last winter, the second one gave up the ghost but again, I put it off, since I didn’t […]

Rollback fallout

There seems to be a direct inverse ratio between the perceived ‘low prices’ offered at a given store and the potential for bodily harm in said stores parking lot. For example: Marshall Fields’not scary. Sam’s Wholes@le Club’scary. Barnes & Noble’not scary. W@lm@rt’enter at your own risk. I went to Mallwart yesterday in search of a […]

Single Dads R Us

Esteban and I went to brunch after our lovely stay in the lovely inn with a fireplace, jacuzzi, and a view of the water. We went to Country Kitchen simply because Esteban’s butt hurt from riding in the car more than ten minutes and Country Kitchen wasn’t overly packed. Little beknownst to us, Country Kitchen […]

Is that a piece of wood in your pants or are you just glad to see me?

So Thursday. I had to work late and I was going to meet a bunch of people at the local Sports Bar #113, where they would be having Karaoke. Esteban eschews karaoke, feeling embarrassed for the people who sing poorly, but he decided to meet me for dinner at #113 before the Karaoke commenced, being […]

100% Anthrax free… also free of Slayer, WASP and Ratt too

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who was funny and bright and loved to read 19th century English literature. She wandered through her eclectic little life quite happily, flitting from book to book, occasionally making failed attempts at emulating Martha Stewart. Then one day, she picked up a new book, a children’s […]

It’s here! It’s here! It’s here!

Glory be, today is the day. Today is the day that my town gains its own center of beatnik culture. Da da da DA!!!!!!!!! Barnes & Noble! I finally got to leave work today for lunch at 2:30 in the freaking afternoon. Good thing I was able to gnaw on that intern for a while […]

The computer you are dialing cannot connect

Oooh, I found a place to stay for this weekend! Ok, it’s not in Door County, but it has the hot tub, a fireplace, and a deck overlooking the water. So the plan will be to drive up to Door County on Friday and tool around there, then come back to town, do a book […]

No, I don’t want to play footsie

There’s just something about fall that makes me want to organize. I’ve been scouring Ebay for the Franklin Planner mahogany purse thing that I’ve lusted over for 3 years. The cost: a mere $340. Why, oh why, can I not find a sugar daddy that will shower me with presents in return for my platonic […]

Actually, I think I’d rather be Sabrina or Josie than Betty or Veronica

Wow, a weird double-entry day again. I must be feeling guilty for the lack of updates this weekend. That’s me. You’d think my drunken mama had been a drunken Jewish mama for all the guilt I carry around with me. Which is why I could never be one of those vampy chicks. I was discussing […]
