I’ve Been Binge Watching True Crime Before Binge Watching True Crime Was Cool

I've been watching a lot of true crime lately. Like daily. I am absolutely addicted. I dream about it. I'd like to think it started with the new season of Making a Murderer, but the truth is it started when I was a small child. My mom used to watch Murder, She Wrote and Father… Continue reading I’ve Been Binge Watching True Crime Before Binge Watching True Crime Was Cool

[Just A Long Post About Laundry]

UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH. We need to talk about laundry. I don't know about you guys, but laundry is probably going to be the thing that does me in. Honestly. It's not the cooking, which I loathe and yet find myself spending about three hours a day doing. It's not the cleaning, which - again - I'm not… Continue reading [Just A Long Post About Laundry]

Well I’ve Had A Week. What About You Guys?

All I Want For Christmas Is For The Holiday Debating To Stop

Please Stop Telling Me I Should Do Things For A Living

The title, alone, sounds ridiculous. Please stop telling me I should do things for a living? What do I expect - to sit around and do nothing as a grown ass adult? No. That's not what I mean at all. A couple weeks ago, we had a little family and friend get together for my… Continue reading Please Stop Telling Me I Should Do Things For A Living

I Can’t Believe I Have To Explain This To You People; How “Baby It’s Cold Outside” and “The Little Mermaid” Have Proven Our Cultural Ignorance

I remember the first time I heard the song "Baby It's Cold Outside." I was riding in the car with my mother. It was Christmastime, I was visiting her in Seattle as I always did for the holidays. We were on our way to some dive bar, where she would hang out in the bar… Continue reading I Can’t Believe I Have To Explain This To You People; How “Baby It’s Cold Outside” and “The Little Mermaid” Have Proven Our Cultural Ignorance
