Cheese and Monkeys

Everyone loves cheese and/or monkeys. There is no one who hates both cheese and monkeys. This is the eternal truth.


Dare I say it? ... it's (acting like) spring!

My niece has nothing to do with this post. She's just cute, yo.
She is a spring baby, so I guess that counts...

Man oh man, how excited am I about the fact that it's finally nice out in Ann Arbor? We just got back from Lowe's (had some money on a gift card), where we got some potting soil and rocks for a....POT GARDEN! Okay, it's actually a "container garden", but calling it a pot garden is much funnier, especially when I reference it in casual conversation.

Anyhoo, once I'm done digesting my hummus (made this morning, I'm so channeling Martha Fucking Stewart today), gardening will commence. The poor mister had a fever yesterday and is feeling better, but not 100%, so the invalid may sit out on the porch with a blanket while I'm doing the work. And if planting finishes fairly quickly, I may be able to squeeze in some sewing also...


Fuckity Fuck Fuck Fuck

Can I say "Fuck the Supreme Court" on the internets??

This is a good link with more info about the ruling, and I have to say I am impressed with Ruth Bader-Ginsburg's dissent. Sadly, it's in the minority. Again, fuck fuck fuck.


Everything's coming up Coco

me and the mister after sushi, and with beers.

I was visiting various and sundry relatives, hence the lack of "posting". Also, I haven't put any interesting photos from my camera up, so that's another reason right there.

Some nice things I was really happy about yesterday:
• My mom finished making a scarf for me and it's my favorite color combo ever (see previous post)!

• I have a job! Granted, it's for a summer camp and will only last for about 4 months total, but hey, it's fucking Michigan, so I should be happy I'm employed at least somewhat (I am).
• Nina the cat started eating canned food! She went to the vet on Thursday so I could talk to someone about making cat food for her, and it was discovered she's up to 16 POUNDS. What the hell? Am I a failure as a cat mom if my cat is insanely obese?
Anyhoo, she's getting hippie canned food instead, and was way not interested when I first put it in her bowl - I think it was more of a not-knowing-what-it-is thing as opposed to a not-liking-it thing, because frankly, she's fat because she loves food. I got her to finally eat it by dipping some kitty treats she does like into it and having her eat them. Augh, I really am a person who dips kitty treats in cat food to get her cat to eat it. Sigh
• We had chicken Parmesan for dinner last night. It was sooo good and we hadn't had it for awhile. We also had some Trader Joe's whole wheat spaghetti with it, which was tastier than the usual whole wheat pasta.
• The Mister brought home flowers that were really awesome, even though they were purple. Aaaand when I went to take a picture of them, I realized they were right in front of my fun purple poster.

That's all.
