Y’all, I have not been swearing enough. Or using the word y’all. Whatever. Does y’all count as a word? Something to ponder.


Online Dating

PG-13? So not me. I figured for my sailor’s mouth alone I’d be bitting R.

It would be really immature of me to randomly say words like shit or fuck, just to try and get a naughtier rating.



So, I got up at the ass-crack of dawn (ok, 7:15 on a Saturday), so I could go out this morning with one of my friends. We were going to go get donuts from John’s Space Age Donuts in Downtown OP and then go to the farmer’s market, also in Downtown OP.

Now, people in KC already know why my plans have been changed to “sit on my ass and watch TV and play with yarn all day”.

For the rest of you–it’s been raining since I woke up and shows no signs of letting up. Not really what you want for a morning planned for the outdoors.

Etsy Favorites

Thought I would share a few of my favorite items up on Etsy.

From Sudlow, we have the majesty and beauty of–Rolling Rock juice glasses! Mmm…Beer.

From Bubbledog, some cute, shiny buttons.

From Simply Delightful, homemade homemade laundry soap in Lemon Sugar. I’ve used her plunks in Bergamot and Bergamot Lime scents and I’ve really enjoyed them.

I suggest that my Mom and her slight elephant problem visit Loosestring and pick up this cute pink elephant pincushion.

For my knitters (especially if you have some kitty love going on), may I introduce you to a very cute mousepad by Mirrorgirl?

I’m not into the pin habit because I can’t figure out where to put them on, but if I were, this peapod pin from One Plaid Aunt would have been snapped up ages ago. Snapped up…oh god, I should shoot myself and save you the unintentional jokes.

Last, but not least, I would like to introduce you to PataPri’s silk-screened kitchen towels printed on 100% linen.


Your Score: Modern, Cool Nerd

52 % Nerd, 60% Geek, 47% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn’t use to be cool, but in the 90’s that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn’t quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and “geek is chic.” The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!
