End of August

I eclipsed. Our house was in the path of totality, which was pretty convenient. Thanks for accommodating us, Sun and Moon (and Krispy Kreme)!

I looked at the sun without the glasses for a bit because I have no impulse control and you can’t tell me what to do. I haven’t had a migraine since I stared into the sun, so HYPOTHESIS: If I stare directly into the sun, I will experience migraine eradication.

On Dorothy Parker’s birthday, I went for a piercing with Tempe.

Like you need a hole in the head...

I realize all we have is NOW, but it doesn’t hurt to dream.


Finally, I finished my fall cowl and then I put it on and did a side-eye cowl pose.

Cowl Side Eye

I’m heavy on the work and heavy on the tea drinking and heavy on the knitting these days. My hair is gone and my patience is gone and the 20 pounds I gained in the past year are gone. I’m trying to be a better human and I’m trying to cook dinner more often and I’m trying to not spend money every time I see a pair of shoes that I love.

I haven’t seen you in awhile.

UPDATE: I got the shoes. I danced around and tossed free money here and there and scored them for $20 at Amazon. Thank you for your support. ‘ ‘ ‘text/javascript’>

  1. Wait. You’re eating Krispy Kreme and losing weight?!? Do tell. I’m currently *not pleased* and need to *do something*. ?? Indulged my Dansko urge yesterday and I’m still contemplating going back a different pair of sneaks that I saw. I think I will. Shoes don’t make my butt look fat.

    LOVE the cowl! You’re awesome

  2. Oh no, you NEED those shoes. I have them in black. It’s like wearing your house slippers out in public, but much more fashionable. Like walking on marshmallow clouds… you NEEEEEEED them.


  3. You’re cowl is super awesome, just like you. I’m a scientist and I may have peaked at the sun during the eclipse.

  4. If I had known you were in the path of totality, I would have totally triggered your anxiety and shown up on your doorstep to stare at the sun (what was left of it, during the eclipse) with you. I love your cowl.

  5. If you are eating Krispy Kreme and losing weight, you have eclipsed the rest of humanity, no doubt. How do I be more like you????

  6. The shoes are cute.
    The cowl is awesome.

    There is not enough space to say all things about Dorothy Parker.

  7. Curse you, woman, for introducing me to the Dansko outlet, not to mention that some of the same shoes are available for far less on Amazon! I need another pair of clogs for winter. Really. I need them, honest. That’s my story and I am sticking to it!
