One of the great tragedies of the modern world is that people with money frequently have terrible taste (see: all the RHW of wherever, Karsashians, 90% of Florida). Those of us who are poor and also fancy have to work harder but maybe that extra work and pluck builds character or some crap like that….
Actual adult shit
Has it been like 9 months since I posted? Where did time go? Why am I so busy? Well, between turning 40, planning endless birthday / HOA/ PTA/ dinner party events, shuttling my children hither and yon, gaining and losing the same 10 lbs over and over and a nice casual homicide trial…. mama has…
Vindaloo for Meee & Yoooo, or My Quest to Make (edible) Indian Food at Home
The biggest mistake I was making in my horror-story curry was using “curry spice” which is NOT A THING. The restaurants you love are not cooking with a bag of orange dust.
I’m so sorry.
I made James Joyce out of Rice Krispie treats. He didn’t deserve this.
bonkers shoe party!
So…. Katy Perry is now selling shoes at Nordstrom. Please send money to my Kickstarter so I can GET ALL THE SHOES. If she will only sell the sparkler-bra I will have the perfect outfit for closing argument on my homicide trial.
When life gives you lemons get some vodka
I’ve had a bitch of a week at work and finally got to the gym this morning (Yea!) and when I got to the gym realized I had left my work clothes at home (Boo!) and had only a sports bra and leggings. To wear to court (Fuck!). Luckily Target opens at 8am so…
Procrastinating via Googlemaps
I am so anxious about work that I was up at 3am fussing over it. But as soon as I get to the office, the desire, no, NEED to look at maps of Lake Bikal in Siberia becomes totally more important. BTW Lake Bikal is the deepest and largest freshwater lake in the world and…
2017 is FINALLY over
Oh boy, 2017 was a real delight. The world didn’t end but did get noticeably shittier. I have gained 5 lbs since Thanksgiving. My house is a mess. But we’re all still alive-ish and I got a new kitchen and like 100 new pairs of shoes this year so could be worse? I am wearing…
A Mom on vacation is still a Mom. Wearing multiple layers and cooking in Iceland. The sun has already gone down at 4pm– and it didn’t come up until 10am. Brrrrr. I’m not making puffin, if you’re wondering….
We don’t wear gowns enough and other deep thoughts
today is my 10th wedding anniversary so I pulled the dress out of storage and wore it to pick the husband up at the airport. 1. We don’t wear gowns enough. Gowns are fucking great. 2. My dress still fits #winning 3. If you go into the bathroom at Wendy’s near the airport to pee…
I ‘accidentally ‘ set my OOO message to read I would be back in April. Oh and I bought this rad hat at the grocery store because beauty’s where you find it right?
After many long, angry months, the kitchen is done. I baked some bread. Then I ate the bread. Totally worth it.
