conspicuous consumption…& beds beds beds

i am in no way doing the 30-day photo challenge in thirty days. nevertheless, day #7 is “post a photo of something you recently bought”. the non-grocery item i most recently purchased was a mattress cover. jared & i bought our mattress when we first moved in together three & a half years ago, &Continue reading “conspicuous consumption…& beds beds beds”

a little something for the shoe fetishists

photo challenge day #6: a photo of your favorite shoes. i think this is a weird one. it’s difficult for me to wrap my mind around the idea of someone having favorite shoes. i mainly think of shoes as a tool to help me avoid contracting ringworm. if left to my own devices, i wearContinue reading “a little something for the shoe fetishists”

little purple house for you & me

photo challenge, day #5: a photo of your home. this is going to be heavy on the photos because i am infatuated with my house. i love this house. after living in a series of horrific crapholes both before & after moving to lawrence, i sometimes think that we finally earned our right to liveContinue reading “little purple house for you & me”

a few of my favorite things (& a crazed rant about bingo)

alex’s photo challenge day two involves taking a photo of something you like. as one might imagine, this was challenging for me, because i prefer talking about things i don’t like. but jared & i both made new year’s resolutions to try to be a little more upbeat & positive in 2012. we made theseContinue reading “a few of my favorite things (& a crazed rant about bingo)”

the internet will kill (or bore) us all

i am falling down on the job of maintaining a regularly-updated blog, so i am going to fall back on that useful old crutch of hacks & frauds: gimmickry. alex wrekk came up with a 30-day photo challenge, & i’m going to try it. (which is not to say that alex is a hack orContinue reading “the internet will kill (or bore) us all”
