I pity the Blu

7:28 a.m. I am currently drinking coffee--what addiction?--out of my Mr. Tea mug that Marty and Kaye got me some years back, that remains one of my favorites. Do you have favorite mugs? ...more


BOOM! That's what woke me up today. Lottie did her usual crying to get out of her crate at 6:30, and I was half-asleep when I took her out, fed her, then slammed my damn bedroom door so I could sleep JUST A LITTLE GODDAMN LONGER, PLEASE GOD ....more

Wall E

I had a dream that I was helping Jesus build a wall to keep out foreigners. I kept saying, "Really? Cause this doesn't seem like something you'd--okay ....more

The one where Edsel is a bad-ass. It's like I said Richard Simmons is in a gang.

A time. Morning-ish. When we last spoke--and why didn't you ever call me last night to say you got in okay?--I said I'd tell about all the places I stopped working at, and how I yelled at someone in a wheelchair, and how I am a magnificent person ....more

June can't quite recall why "chicken" is even one of her categories

For breakfast, I am having a chicken sandwich. For dinner last night I had rotisserie chicken, so today I made a little sandwich with my flat, multi-grain, DON'T EVER HAVE FUN, JUNE bread and some excellent tomatoes. I am really just fine with non-breakfast food for breakfast ....more

Dog years

7:36 a.m. The alarm went off at 6:40 today. By 6:42 I was sick of Lottie. So there's that ....more

June jaunts. Returns. Talks about dogs.

Sunday, 6:53 p.m. I went away this weekend, to celebrate the splendor of me and the date of my birth. Tonight I am home, having just picked up the dogs at their daycare where they summered this weekend. I got there just under the wire of the place still being open, saving me having to pay yet another $63 to let them stay another damn night ....more

June gets a birthday eve eve surprise

Bonne Bell 10:06 Lotion p.m. Let me tell you something. Work has been kicking my ASS this week, and it's not likely to get better anytime soon. So I was really looking forward to leaving work today and heading out to see Chris and Lilly, who live in the country ....more

The devil in Miss Lottie

Yesterday was a stupid day that resulted in Ned breaking into my house and me working till 8:30. I had a meeting at noon, except I'd gotten the invitation to the meeting one night after midnight and it woke me up with the trill of a meeting to accept or decline. I got three notices that night, and there's a meeting also today with almost the same name, so I thought the one yesterday had been rescheduled, which happens all the time ....more

June's routine. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 9.5, 10...

I had to get up early today, because we had to be, well, on time at work today. The start time at work is 8:30, and once some old biddy asked in a meeting, "What's our start time?" which was a pointed way of saying people roll in at all hours. But WE WERE TOLD that we are adults and if that means you gotta get there at 8:45 and leave at 5:45, that's cool ....more
