That Linking Feeling

Everyone is so mean online these days. Even people on my do-gooder, stinky treehugging sites are being short with each other. I blame the election. I think everyone is stressed out about the economy and we are all waiting to see how the election goes down before we make any big choices about our future. […]

Ick!

I’ve managed to break another printer. Which is really easy to do. At least this one lasted three years before a paper jam brought it to its death of obvious forced obsolescence. Can office equipment just cost a lot of money and not break all the time? I’m just slightly furious about how bad the […]

Today Mr. Foxypants told me his theory on how people organize their homes. He believes that there are two types of people: those who live in doctor’s offices and those who live on pirate ships. I would think this idea hilarious, save for the fact that he then made it clear that my office is […]

My friend Laura just opened a tea house that serves organic, fair trade tea and locally sourced food. She’s one of those rare people who manages to make sustainable living look fabulous and chic. When I came across six beautiful chrome-plated serving trays in my garage (from who knows what) while organizing for my garage […]

I don’t remember when I started drinking coffee. I was that young. No. Really. I spent my grade school breakfasts hunched over the funny papers, drinking cafe au lait from 16 ounce mugs my parents purchased at the local craft fair. When I was little, one of my father’s chores was to buy coffee for […]

Yelp!

Today I registered on Yelp! so I could start being one of those know-it-alls who reviews local businesses. I decided to register after noticing that three restaurants that I really love all had some snotty remarks made about them. I spent an hour writing up reviews under my new Yelp! pseudonym. Thirty minutes later I […]

The Terrible Pawnshop

I am a trash picker. I confess. And if I weren’t so worried about running into a sleeping homeless person or a hypodermic needle, I’d be scoping out every dumpster in the neighborhood for abandoned treasures. I paid for two years of my life by trash picking furniture and other usable items off the curb […]
