If I Were Made Of Bacon

Haku is adorable. And Samantha Irby’s book is HILARIOUS, FYI! I would love to be friends with her. The kind of friends who text or DM because neither of us want to get out into the world. Or put pants on. Or have to worry about awkward pooping in public places. Look at Haku. He […]

Instagram: Bringing You Back Alley Treasures Since 2020

Hi. I’ve missed having fun stuff to share with you when everything feels heavy. Including me. But today something fun happened that made me laugh and I want to share it with you. I’m surprised my best friend sent this- he’s a little more on the reserved side. Sometimes I wonder how our friendship has […]

Spiders Make Terrible Interior Decorators

I kind of feel bad for demolishing all of their hard work, but they should ask before assuming it’s okay for them to start putting cobwebs anywhere they want all willy nilly. MAYBE YOU’D HAVE MORE OF A SAY IF YOU HELPED PAY THE BILLS, SPIDERS! Or if you could write words in your web […]

We’re About To See Just How Green My Green Thumb Is

Before I get started on the actual topic of today’s post (a big box of jungle love from Houston), I made an important decision: I’m going to talk to my health care provider about anti-depressant meds. …but that’s only going to happen when COVID fucks off or when I absolutely have to go in for […]

I WIN BECAUSE I HAVE ALL OF THE SEEDS!

Winter had to get one last hoorah in before Spring sits on the throne. What a fucking dick! We’ve had great weather here lately. Sure, it’s kind of windy, but it’s Kansas. I’ll take a windy 70 degree day anytime. As you are well aware (if you religiously read my blog), I love plants. They’re […]

Struggling To Embrace The Unknown

Fudge grahams are probably the best thing in the entire world. I love them a little too much. Wrapped up my first week working from home- not exactly what I thought it would be. In fact, this has probably been the worst week I’ve ever had at my current job. It certainly ended on a […]

It’s A Weird Time To Be Alive

Not just because my son bled all over a sink and I flushed a sock down the toilet this week (update: TOTALLY DIDN’T CLOG!) Things are getting serious. All the K-12 schools in Kansas have closed for the year. My department started working from home yesterday- I think I managed to be more productive from […]

I Just Watched My Sock Get Flushed Down The Toilet

I can’t even be mad because it was hilarious- I may not find it funny later if I get a call from my kid saying the toilet is clogged. But the sock is long, thin, and stretchy. I have faith it’ll slither through the pipes just fine. More posts to come!
