Moved to TUMBLR!!

Hi guys, I'm moving this entire operation over to Tumblr. I added a Disqus plugin so people over here will be able to comment should they feel like it! I'll start adding a redirect thing in a few months, but in the meantime, please click on through as this won't be updated anymore.

Stoopids.

So one night Thriller was playing with a paper bag, as usual. However, this particular paper bag had handles on it. He managed to get his head through one of the handles, and then his front paws and most of his belly through the other, leaving him very, very tied up to the thing. In a moment of pure fear and panic, he started RACING around the apartment, paper bag clattering around like crazy, trying to get it away from him. It basically looked like a paper bag running around the apartment; he was a blur. Our normally mild-mannered girl cat, Toots, was furiously chasing right on his heels, either screaming at the bag or at him for being stupid and getting stuck. Joe finally caught the maniac bag cat and removed the noisemaker for him. Thriller sulked into a bedroom, eyes darting, ears flattened and looking ashamed while Toots was still yowling at him for being a dipshit. And now you know about what the cats did.

Cat stories are not entertaining to anyone but their owners, usually. I swear it was hilarious. In my mind.

Doodlie-oo

Guys. I have to tell you about my stupid furry roommates... Later.

Weird Girl drawings

Ugh. Hate how I've been drawing lately. Need to get back into drawing for myself.

Also a defiant teenager arrested at an Urban Outfitters over the weekend. She was glaring at people while being escorted out.

Warning: Girly Post

Some of you may find this information helpful. Or not. I'm just on a kick right now, so bear with me.

Ok, so, growing up I always had the worst skin ever. If it wasn't breakouts, then eczema promised to ravage my hands and destroy all my knuckles. Whenever I travel to a different climate my skin protests furiously and takes it's sweet goddang time recovering once I get home. Moving to LA has completely chapped me out, and I tried a billion different things to no avail. The lady over at Daily Coyote, who now writes a wonderful, escapist new blog called Honey Rock Dawn, recently blogged about some oils she uses that are good for your body and good for the environment! I started using them a couple weeks ago and now my cheeks are smooth as a baby's bottom, nose is not flaking off, and oil production has been controlled. The kukui nut oil has calmed down the eczema and I don't have to buy bottles of that super expensive Aveeno stuff (which is probably full of chemicals anyway). They're so much cheaper and you feel spoiled in the process. Plus you can pour them into little amber glass bottles and blend with essential oils, feeling like a fuggin' wizard in the process. If you're having problems with your skin, maybe you can try her advice. You can find most of the oils at a Whole Foods or Trader Joe's. I ordered a bunch of stuff from the place she recommended, Mountain Rose Herbs.

...The only problem is now I keep touching myself.

Naked Valentines!




The finished cards! These were so damn fun to make, despite ruining two screens and having to register every. single. card. GAH. But they were worth it! If you'd like one, they are debuting on my new Etsy store!

Ya'll need to see The King's Speech. It is full of gorgeous photography, and it's nice to see Geoffrey Rush as something other than a pirate ;P
