Lo! How a Rose E'er Blooming!
in a previous post, i talked about my glittered christmas cards. at my place, i added a little something extra to them (which included some more glitter) and i now realize why my mom was so uberly passionate against glitter. when glitter is in your own home, it’s less spectacular and more annoying. i tried flushing some down the toilet, but instead most of it just floated onto the toliet...
it was a marriott hotel. which is a first rate hotel.– apparently, a well-traveled jetsetter

today, here are a few things that make me laugh: my friend heather says: I went to CVS to purchase a shower cap, and I accidentally purchased a bonnet. It’s a purple ‘lace trim satin bonnet’. that’s funny. it also makes me laugh that kim (from the real housewives of atlanta) said that doctors told her that her wig was squeezing her brain. that’s funny. it also...
today is a lonely day. the desk next to mine is empty. the critic’s corner dissolved. it’s also really cold outside and the fog (or are they really low clouds?) makes the tops of the buildings disappear. long towers of glass and steel that just fade away. or go on forever. i guess it depends how you look at it. today? fade away. definitely fade away. this weekend, i visited the...
this morning, i have an appointment in oak brook, so i stayed out at my parent’s house last night. right now, i’m working in my pajamas, my mom just made me an egg in a basket for breakfast and i’m not wearing any underwear under my sweatpants. i think i need to quit my job and freelance. this is amazing! yesterday, my mom and i had a ‘million things to do.’ on...
70-year-old twins? that’s amazing!– when you think about it, it’s really not that amazing.
oh la la
sometimes when i call my sister, she answers the phone in french. neither of us really know how to speak french (granted we both had very romantic notions while taking french in high school). but we are dramatic, so somehow, it works. N E WAYZ… our conversation is always very similar to this exact conversation (please add your own accent): SARAH: bonjour mon frère ME: bonjour ma soeur....
i will do this ONLY if she agrees to make valentines cards with me. otherwise,...– my divo side shows.

eye will always love you
i went to get my eye exam the other day. sad fact: i had been wearing the same pair of contacts (my last pair of a year supply) for the last five months. they started feeling like scratchy sweaters. infection? possible. uncomfortable? positive. ‘how long have you had these contacts in for?’ maria the eye assistant asked. ‘one month,’ i said. ‘one month?’ she...
here’s a conversation that took place on facebook, between ‘walls’ of two aquaintances, from 8.09am on friday november 7 to 8.20am on friday november 7. i couldn’t stop laughing as it seems like the perfect PSA for the social networking site. all names have been removed. PERSON A wrote at 8:09am yesterday This is thrilling!!!! You’ll be hooked soon. xxoo PERSON...
I feel like I smell like Chinese food and I don’t even eat it– that IS weird.
sad, sad day.
so i have this little ecosphere at my office. it started out with four bright red shrimp. happy. lucky. shrimp. three of them past away. cause of death? unknown. but one brave little shrimp survived. he bounced around the very teeeeeny sphere for almost one and a half years. bouncing his red little articulated body from the little branches to the white pebbles. today, a co-worker came over to...
