It hurts to cough but I can’t stop coughing
OH oh OH! Lots of people are discussing what tattoos they want and I want in. So. (Mom, before you have a heart attack at the number of these know that I’ll probably only end up with one or two of them these are just the things I’m thinking about)
Pippa and I invented a game. It’s called “YOU CAN’T FOOL PIPPA!” It involves asking her an addition problem (that adds up to less than 10 - sometimes up to 15 if I’m feeling lucky) and her answering the problem correctly (because she’s a genius) then us both yelling “YOU CAN’T FOOL PIPPA!” and then we both giggle a lot.
So, y’all, I have the best job in the world and there is nothing I would rather do as a job than my job. Tonight, though? I’d love to be playing “YOU CAN’T FOOL PIPPA!”
“A Good Idea At the Time” OK Go // “Holy Roller” Thao & The Get Down Stay Down // “Out Of It” Fallulah // “Old Yellow Bricks” Arctic Monkeys // “Worship You” Vampire Weekend // “The Calculation” Regina Spektor // “Dig” Lost Lander // “Dreams” Bastille // “Bukowski” Modest Mouse // “Smiling Underneath” Ani DiFranco // “Love Love Love” The Mountain Goats // “Judy Blume” Amanda Palmer
(incoming long boring story, y’all!)
Yesterday the skies opened up and rain poured down and it took me a whole hour to get home from work. My husband had dropped my girls off at work so he could run an errand that involved using the whole car (BIG NEW FISH TANK, YO!) so when I got home we just ran through the garage as fast as we could.
This morning I opened the front door to go back to work and there was this super wet bedraggled package sitting on my front step. I was running late but it looked like a book and I Wanted it out of there before the cardboard finished soaking through. OH MY GOODNESS, guys! I can’t even tell you. Holly Black has been such a formative influence on my whole darn life so I am beyond excited to read this!
TL;DR? Be jealous, y’all! (:
We’ve been way behind on fall TV so yesterday and today were “watching episode 1 of the season before it’s no longer available on the website” sorts of days. So.
Agents of shield
Those were the three watched yesterday and today. I think I want to stop watching TV before they kill off everyone. I don’t even want to know what happens in the Sleepy Hollow premiere. If they kill off any of my babies on that show I will be quite put out.
Information about VonDerrit’s murder from the man behind Darren Wilson’s fundraiser, who was himself fired for filing false information as a police officer? Let’s be vigilant.

I was trying to remind my daughter to take off her glasses before sleep and I couldn’t remember the words so my mouth said “don’t forget to take off the … headphones for your face.”
I think I need to use the sleep.
- Goblin King! Goblin King! Wherever you may be! Take this child of mine far away from me!
- That's not it!
- Where'd she learn that rubbish? It doesn't even start with "I wish?"
So we’ve had Halloween discussions this year. First the girls wanted to be the Guardians of the Galaxy then Pokemen, Mario Cart characters, and now Pippa wants to be Snow White and Kaylee wants to be Kate Bishop which means I can be whatever because I don’t think I can string those two into a coherent family costume? So I’m thinking Jareth. Because tumbowielarians show their pride, right?
What are y’all going to be for Halloween?
