Popping In To Say “Hello!”

I realize that I’m almost completely swallowed whole by this writing ennui and I need to kick my own ass back into gear because I’ve gotten way too comfortable relying on my fall-back-on life and it makes me feel complacent.  My writing muscles have begun to atrophy, so consider this a bit of stretching: I [...]

Dear Arizona:

You suck like a twenty dollar whore. So, Arizona is in the national spotlight, again, for making yet another in a long series of really terrible political moves.  This time it is a bill that would allow business owners to deny service to anyone they *believe* infringes on their religious freedom, which means that refusal [...]

So, I just read an article (inspired by another article) from a “vintage” website – a huge one that rhymes with “shmeens of shmintage” – that actually tried to peddle some horseshit about how too much nostalgia is bad and people shouldn’t make comments on photos from the 1950s if they don’t know the exact [...]

I Can’t Believe It’s Almost Thanksgiving.

So, I Did A Little Thrifting This Weekend…

FINALLY.  Jesus.  It felt like ages.  This is the part where most people would be like, “Sorry I haven’t blogged,” but I’m more of a “I’m working, deal with it,” kind of girl.  Let’s get on with it, shall we? So, for the last…I don’t know…six months or so, I have been working up a [...]

Ghost Hunters Haunted By New Terror: CNN

When I read this article by John Blake, I was one of about a zillion people who were instantly pissed off.  Sure, some people took the “preach it, CNN” attitude, but I was not one of those people.  Why am I pissed?  I’m glad you asked. First, this subject matter is old news.  It is well [...]

Sewing Success!!

Any of you who have read Thrift Stories:  Cool Sh!t I Thrifted will recall that I had declared myself a pitiful seamstress with exactly zero ability to sew anything except my own fingers to a length of fabric.  I’ve always envied the vintage bloggers whose blogs I frequent that have such amazing sewing skills.  They make [...]
