Conversation With Adam

I’m nervously watching my Facebook today to see if the stolen data notice pops up. In the meantime, memories like these are why it’s so hard to think about leaving. From a few years back: Adam: Ugh, everything’s terrible. Me: I’m gonna fix it for you. Adam: How? Me: I’m gonna draw a dick onContinue reading “Conversation With Adam”

The White Rabbit

If you want to see me really flip out, wait until I miss an appointment. It’ll be a long wait, because it doesn’t happen all that often. However, when it does, I lose human form and turn into a horrible shrieking weep-beast. So if that’s your favorite thing, hang around. The weep-beast has made anContinue reading “The White Rabbit”

Scene from a Marriage

Adam and I will be married a year next Sunday, which means that I will now subject you all to yet another post explaining how lucky I am to be married to him. (This is appropriate, since, having taken his last name, I am now officially Lucky myself.) Last night I was sad. I hadContinue reading “Scene from a Marriage”

For Some Reason, My Period Is Always a Surprise

So, I thought I was going to have to go back on antidepressants, but then it turned out I was just getting my period. This happens to me every month, because despite having had my period for 25 years, it always comes as a shock to me. I think this must be related to thatContinue reading “For Some Reason, My Period Is Always a Surprise”

Things Sgt. Lucky Said While Viewing the American Apparel Photo Spread, “It’s Pantytime!”

First of all, in case you were unfamiliar, there’s this company called American Apparel and they sell clothing and also take pictures of amateur models who are probably legal, but don’t look like it. They also have some fairly well-documented financial problems, but that’s not what’s important here. What’s important is that my husband isContinue reading “Things Sgt. Lucky Said While Viewing the American Apparel Photo Spread, “It’s Pantytime!””

Wisdom Through Noir-Inspired Video Games

I spent part of this evening watching Sgt. Lucky play L.A. Noire, which I could have sworn was a movie at one point, but I was wrong. At one point in the game, one of the detectives discovers a body with tracks in his arm, and says something to the effect of, “Guess that wasContinue reading “Wisdom Through Noir-Inspired Video Games”

Spineless Movement and a Wild Attack

So, there are these people who believe that the Rapture is going to happen this weekend, and while I am not one of them, reading Maud Newton’s excellent essay at the Awl made me realize that part of me thinks it has to happen, because it’d make such a good story. I tend to thinkContinue reading “Spineless Movement and a Wild Attack”

Sgt Lucky Keeps All the Gross Things to Himself

Only not really, because he just showed me long spindle of wax that fell out of his ear. Wax falling out of his ears is not a strange occurrence, but this one was a doozy. It was the length of his thumbnail and sort of twisted, as if someone had been trying to make itContinue reading “Sgt Lucky Keeps All the Gross Things to Himself”

My Facebook Feed Hates America

So, you might have heard that Sunday was a pretty good news day. The 24-hour news cycle being what it is, I figured we’d probably start seeing backlash sometime tonight. I was maybe a little naive, at least as far as Facebook goes. (And if it doesn’t happen on Facebook, does it really happen atContinue reading “My Facebook Feed Hates America”
