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.

Video Library


To those here in the KC area:

Video Library at 87th & Rosehill is closing. Go forth and scavenge the cheap DVDs and VHS.



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)!

Orange-flavored milk from a local dairy farm and Froot Loops. Wonderful combination.

Weird Dream


I dreamed that I came home to my apartment and there was a rat being held hostage underneath a pink bowl right outside my front door.

I walk in to find that there are two large cages set up with multiple levels and all sorts of fun stuff for small animals. One cage had litter and food and a water bottle and a rat inside. The other cage was empty.

My sister and her husband were there, so I asked her about the cages. She said the one that was already filled up was hers and the empty one and the rat in the bowl out on the landing was mine.

I told her that I thought she should have fixed up the cage for my rat while she was fixing up the cage for her rat. She said whatever and disappeared with her husband and the nice cage.

I was left alone with a cage that needed a lot of set-up work and a rat slowly moving the bowl from the front door to my feet.

After that point, the dream changed to something I can’t remember.

I wonder if this is just my mind spewing crap or if it’s me telling myself that I miss having a ratty around.



So, what did I end up doing?

Thursday: Sat on my ass and read all day. Very satisfying. Then went out and picked up cat food and a Papa Murphy’s pizza with my sister, brother-in-law and niece. While eating pizza, we watched the Robin Hood episodes we had saved up. Excellent cheese factor on that show.

Friday: Lunch with Grandma at Olive Garden, very yummy. We then went to Half-Price bookstore where I traded in half a tub of books to get $21 towards my $28 purchase. Book nerd? Yes. We then cleaned my kitchen and I tackled part of the computer/dining room area. Later that evening, we went bowling. Would have been a lot more fun if it weren’t for the screeching, squealing tweens two lanes over. *sigh* At least we’ve got at least ten years before Lily gets obnoxious like that. I hope. Oh god…

Saturday: BIRTHDAY!!! Lunch with Mom at Houilihan’s in Fairway. I think the average age in there was 62. We then went to The Studio, where I picked up my baseball tickets for Stitch & Pitch and chatted with Andrea. We then headed over to Cottage Fiber where Mom bought me some fun roving as a birthday present. Back home again to hang out with Jess and Aaron for a bit and then go to Bangkok Pavilion.

Sunday: Absofreakinglutely nothing. Wonderful, I tell you. I’ve not changed out of my PJs all day. I’ve just been reading, watching TV and spinning. There might have been a bit of cooking, too. I tried out a bread baker that I picked up on Etsy, made cupcakes and pudding pops. I may make macaroni later, if I don’t slow down.
