Up at 2am this morning due to BBQ
Yesterday I made Dr. Pepper pulled pork (Okay, it was Mr. Pibb but that’s all that was in the vending machine). I had a super busy day at work and my first grad school test that night so a big crockpot full or sweet and spicy BBQ pulled pork was the perfect solution for dinner. So when Mark and I finally dragged ourselves home at 7pm we gobbled it up (along with oven fries and mac n’...
When I use the same beauty products the super...
why do I not look like Karlie Kloss right away? Or in two weeks? or any amount of time for that matter? I have a minimalist approach to make-up and I like to think that if I find the right balance of beauty products I’ll never have to wear make-up again, just lip gloss and look like fucking Heidi Klum when I walk out the door. This theory has yet to pay off.
Give me a warning
Just clicked on a picture on my facebook news feed of a little girl hugging her black lab. Awww. Until I clicked the photo and read the caption about how the dog died recently and she wrote a letter to God. Now. Now I’m blubbering like a baby about a dog and kid I don’t know. I need to be studying internal structure, pay models, and external competitiveness for a grad school test...

If you’re walking upstairs in a sweater dress that’s more tunic than dress, semi-opaque tights, and nothing else do you want me to tell you you have a scandalous situation going on or are you aware of the wardrobe choice and now you’re just advertising?

notsoplainandtall replied to your post: Restraining myself from strangling my dog You might want to try a harness instead of a collar. It’s harder to get out of, better on their neck, and dogs seem to respond better with a harness than a collar. I have a dog that freaks and wiggles out of her collar too. This sounds like the perfect solution - at least for morning runs or outings where we...
Restraining myself from strangling my dog
I took Callie out today on her normal morning run. I decided to swing through the plaza, early in the morning there aren’t a lot of people and I had plenty of treats to reward Callie when she didn’t react fearfully to strangers (this is something we’ve been doing since we got her). Everything was fine until we went by a coffee shop. There was a man sitting and drinking coffee in...

When I was in elementary school I lived close enough to walk to school. I could either take an ally way or a residential street home. Since the ally was 50 ft closer than the residential street I typically took the ally. So one day my sister and I are walking home from school, I was in 4th grade and she was in 3rd… and we’re walking home in the back ally on a bright sunny day and...
Impulse by of the day
After seeing CharlieBravo’s outfit post today I want and immediately purchased the same leopard print scarf from ALDO. I legitimized the purchase by Google searching a coupon code, free shipping, and the fact I’ve wanted a leopard print scarf like this since last year. @charliebravo - you should probably call ALDO and ask for commission.
Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil I almost pee’d myself when I saw this trailer. This looks hilarious - totally my sense of humor.
Scene: Marketing MBA class
Professor: So would you all prefer a test in the classroom or a take-home and open book test? Me: Is that a real question? Too bitchy? Mark thought so. I really have to work on not saying what I’m thinking out loud.
My allergies are killing me. No exaggeration, they are knocking me flat on my ass. I can’t think because my brain is floating in snot, my eyes are so irritated I want to scoop them out with a spoon, and I’m so tired I don’t even want to get up to eat. So, okay, whatever. I’ve got allergies and I can deal with them by OD’ing on Benadryll and Zyrtec but there is...

They are all over my dash now making me feel all kinds of jealous.
Today is for getting back on track
Dropped Callie off at the vet this morning. Poor girl was too sore to handle the stairs and she cried every time I tried to carry her so I ended up lugging her in her kennel down the apartment steps and into the car. Mark left early for school so I had to use my charm to convince a neighbor to help me lift the kennel in the back of my car - I think I seriously injured my back during the whole...
I've never wanted to hurt an animal until today
Today was the day I was scheduled to take Callie back to the shelter (Wayside Waifs in Kansas City) for one last goodbye to her previous foster parents and to return the borrowed kennel to them. Callie recognized them right away and she was dancing she was so thrilled to see them again. It was all going great, despite my lateness (I ran out of gas and had to make a quick stop at the gas...
KCers - Reliable dry cleaners?
Can anyone in KC recommend a good dry cleaner? The one closest to me has horrible reviews and I’ve got a stock pile of clothes that need attending.

This weekend wore me down
I need a relaxing weekend and what I got was far from it… - Drove 5 hours in a horrible downpour to my parents with Callie (Mark couldn’t come) - Consoled and bribed a shy dog to meet and feel comfortable around my parents - Had my ass handed to me by allergy season (still am getting my ass kicked) - Had to pull Callie out of a dog scuffle with a friend’s dog - Still trying...
Thanks all for the dog advice
Took Callie to the vet today as the limp was still going on. Vet felt around, didn’t find any tears, and thinks she sprained her knee. So we got some anti-inflammatory meds and an order of bed rest for at least a week. Womp womp.
