The one requirement is, if you order polish from the Zoya sale you have to share what colors you got. I don't make the rules, just enforce them. :-)

Happy May Day

Happy May Day

Okay, mostly I just wanted an excuse to post this video. Though, clearly Jonathan Coulton is not from Colorado, because this is the view out my office window.

Last week we tentatively scheduled a May Day BBQ at work. Then, Monday this storm rolled in. Fortunately, it is Spring in Colorado, so temps in the 50's today, 60's tomorrow, and 80 by Monday.

Any May Day traditions where you are?

Bra revelation/help

Bra revelation/help

I need bra help...though this time it is of a slightly different sort than usual. I recently bought this bra. It is an unpadded, unlined, and lace top. I bought it mostly as a "sexy" bra, but find myself wearing it all the time. I like the fact that it lets my boobs be mostly their natural shape instead of whatever shape the cup manufacturer wants them to be. And because it doesn't have the...

Flowers!

Flowers!

tury ago my great-great grandmother took up some of her precious covered wagon space with a peony plant. That plant is still alive and producing flowers. When I went to visit my great-aunt this weekend, she handed out flowers to all of us.

My great-aunt has the original now (though it’s been moved a few times), and both my dad and my uncle have cuttings from “The Homestead Peony”. Someday, when...

Meet the Counselors from Camp Firewood

Meet the Counselors from Camp Firewood

Yay! Time for another Wet Hot American Summer promo video. In this one we get to meet some of the counselors, including a new one. I’m not quite sure how I feel about that. I’m not still torn on all these new additions. I mean, they are generally good actors, I just hope they don’t take too much time away from the old favorites.

Lazy (for me) Sunday Open Thread

Lazy (for me) Sunday Open Thread

I just have a few random things to say:

My cats apparently missed me since I’ve been gone a lot. I can’t sit down without one in my lap or next to me. It is both adorable and a little annoying.I have an adorable cross-stitch pattern in my head to make for my friends, and I’m surprised/sad it doesn’t exist yet. I don’t have the skills to make a pattern, but I might have to try. It is just a mom,...

I feel gross... 

I feel gross... 

I was scrolling through Facebook and found myself reading something by Matt Walsh... And agreeing with it. Now I need to flush my brain out. It was about Trump and at the end, said:

“Incoherent, rambling, pointless, self-aggrandizing, namedropping, utterly devoid of anything resembling a substantive thought. This is Donald Trump.

He might be the next president.

This is America.

Pray for our...

Stephen Colbert on Star Wars Marketing

Stephen Colbert on Star Wars Marketing

I posted about this in an Open Thread yesterday. But, I keep thinking about it, so I figured I might as well make a post about it. Basically, I’m trying to decide if I’m being overly critical of this Stephen Colbert bit where he mocks the Star Wars marketing. But, the specific product he chooses to make fun of is the Cover Girl Star Wars collection. Even going so far as to describe it as “the...

I'm....not sure how I am

ManBerry and I are officially broken up (I know...finally). I’m still lost because I don’t know how I feel. Things with us were never great, but they’ve not been even worse than usual for the last couple months. I’ve basically been waiting for him to break up with me....I know I could have broken up with him and I know that was kind of immature, but I got so tired of a lack of follow through...

Kitty!!

Kitty!!

Tonight I went to the local farmer’s market and somebody was giving away kittens. After some talks with my mom, I picked one out for her. But, until I can deliver it tomorrow, this little squeaker is spending some quality time with me!

Polydactyl kitten toes!

The one I would have picked out if choosing a new kitty for myself (which won’t happen for a while, one of my cats is already upset the...

Food Today Thread :-)

Food Today Thread :-)

So, I mostly just made this thread to brag about the cooking I did today.

I finally ordered Sunny Paris seasoning from Penzey’s. One suggestion I kept seeing was it was good on eggs, so I made some scrambled eggs. They were easily the best I’ve made, the curds were perfectly big and fluffy*, they weren’t overcooked, but also not undercooked. And with some Sunny Paris, grated parmesan, and a...

I don’t know why this is so entertaining, especially since it is so very very simple. But, I’ve been playing with it for the last 15 minutes. Swim little whale swim.

Realities of rural life

Realities of rural life

After reading some things on the main pages lately, I would really love to do a post/story sharing session/AMA or something on the realities of rural life. Or really, maybe just a lesson on how to not patronize us or treat us like morons. And, I'm not talking "Oh, I live in a tiny town of 20,000 people 30 minutes from Chicago/NYC/Atlanta/LA/whatever" type rural, I mean tiny town of 1,200...

Cottage Cheese: Sweet or Savory?

Cottage Cheese: Sweet or Savory?

It’s been too long since we’ve had some drama here, and since I’m feeling cranky today I’m going to bring some good old-fashioned shit stirring here and ask The Big Question...Do you prefer your cottage cheese sweet or savory?

Me personally, I’m a savory person. I eat mine with Mrs. Dash, Old Bay, or Lawry’s completely covering the top. I had a delicious dinner last night (that looked like a...

Dinner?

Dinner?

Is/was your Sunday night dinner a "screw it, it's a day of rest" dinner o f delivery pizza and wine? Or was it a homecooked dinner with the intention of leftovers for the week (like mine)?

Inspired by Snaktivist sharing this recipe for Tomato-Glazed Meatloaves with Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes, I made them for dinner. Now, all mashed potatoes that aren't made with brown butter and buttermilk...

Zoya Sale

Zoya is having one of their "Get 3 Free, only pay shipping" sales right now. Plus, this time, you also get 3 mini polish bottles of mystery colors.

I'm not sure I need more polish right now, but I really want to know what the mystery colors. I wonder if they are new, or the same colors I got in the Cyber Monday Surprise package.

UPDATE: Thank you all for your help and support. I finally heard back from him, and he claims that it was a friend from out of town (though not a town in the county the car is from....but that isn't super unusual in this area) staying here because she had an interview tomorrow. I 85% believe him, but there are a couple tiny details to the story that just don't add up. But, I figure unless I...

What's for dinner?

What's for dinner?

Tonight I made lettuce wraps. I basically followed this P.F Chang’s copy cat recipe, except I used ground turkey and iceberg lettuce because my town’s grocery store doesn’t have ground chicken or butter lettuce and I didn’t feel like taking a 50 mile round-trip to get them today. I also added a green bell pepper, so I can pretend I’m eating vegetables and extra hoisin sauce because I like it....
