Getting all crafty up in this piece

So after I went to jolly ol’ England and took loads (that’s such a British word) of photos, I took a couple of them and blew ’em up. Thanks to a well-timed Groupon and a week I didn’t have to buy groceries, I splurged on two canvas prints from a Web site. The pictures IContinue reading “Getting all crafty up in this piece”

A third roommate?

I’m about 68-percent sure my apartment is haunted. It all started about a month ago. The stereo in my bedroom started turning on by itself in the middle of the night, which wouldn’t be too big of a deal except it came on at the same time every night (around 2:30), loudly. It wasn’t onContinue reading “A third roommate?”

I ain’t ‘fraid of no ghosts

Just murderers. I am so serious. Besides clowns, heights and submarines – don’t judge that last one, the episode of LOST where my TV boyfriend dies completely proves my point – the thing I may be most scared of is being murdered. Yep. I’m scared of being murdered. See: Why I slept in the middleContinue reading “I ain’t ‘fraid of no ghosts”

When movies meet real life

Yesterday, we had a visitor at our apartment. Since we don’t live in a house, where we can be expected to be hit up for Girl Scout Cookies and other school fundraiser-y things, unless we are expecting company, we have no idea who’s at our door. So imagine my surprise when I opened the doorContinue reading “When movies meet real life”

Just because we’re roommates doesn’t mean we give each other compliments

Him: Did you highlight your hair? Me: Yeah, like a few weeks ago. I think I’m having a good hair day today though. Him: Yeah. And you have makeup on… Me: Actually I don’t. Him: Oh. Looked like it. Me: Nope…just tell me I’m pretty. Him: Shut up.

Microwave Popcorn – 1, Roommate – 0

I’m honestly surprised any microwave I’ve ever owned hasn’t just stopped working one random day – the technological equivalent of throwing its hands up in the air and saying “SERIOUSLY, YOU EXPECT ME TO WORK WITH THIS WOMAN?” I mean my personal laptop – complete with years of pictures, documents and that one Dave BarnesContinue reading “Microwave Popcorn – 1, Roommate – 0”

More cleaning than springing

I’ve not really done the whole “Spring Cleaning” thing before. I mean, I’ve thrown stuff out and I’ve usually done it when the weather’s warm, because, let’s face it, who wants to leave the house when it’s cold, let alone trudge all the way to the dumpster? By the way, it’s still cold. Didn’t springContinue reading “More cleaning than springing”

The Case of The Missing Place Mat

Last week, one of the place mats from our dining room table went missing. It was scary for a few minutes, because what if burglars had broken into our apartment? They’d left the laptops, the DVDs, the Darth Vader Mr. Potato Head I got in a holiday gift exchange, but taken the place mat? THEContinue reading “The Case of The Missing Place Mat”

A conversation that could only be had in this apartment

Me: Liz is coming over tomorrow night to watch LOST. Anthony: Cool. Save it (on the DVR) for me. Me: Nope. I’m going to delete it. And then I’m going to delete all your memories of it. Anthony: That’s cool, ’cause all day long at work I’ll be researching unorthodox ways to kill you. Me:Continue reading “A conversation that could only be had in this apartment”
