This week in a Facebook comment I said, “Being a person is real hard and practicing doesn’t even help!” and I still feel that so hard right now. My brain is so full that my head hurts, and so do many of my other organs. It feels [even more] shallow [than usual] to blog about clothes and […]

No news is actually just more bad news

Hey friends. I think I’ve said this like 500 times already but I keep putting off blogging because I want to have a ton of good news for you when we talk, and currently good news is like “Alison? No thanks!”. Times like these I wish I’d set this thang up with a purpose because I […]

Scrotum if you Got ‘Em

Look, that title has nothing to do with anything.  It was just a phrase that occurred to me, and I was disappointed that 1) My mom didn’t say it first and 2) It took me 33 years. My birthday is this month, so at least I thought of it before I turned 34.  That would […]

Thangs poppin

Heeyyyyy, Hi.  Welcome.  Things here are just….I feel like all that ever happens is stuff that is either too boring to tell you about, or too interesting to be shared publicly on the whole internet. I should go get a Diaryland and make it password protected, probably.  Okay actuallyyyyyyy originally I started this blog because […]

Broken Toesday

Not even kidding, I think I broke my dumb toe yesterday.  It’s the second-to-the-smallest toe, so it isn’t even an important one or anything but it sure does hurt.  I was trying to adjust my chair to be over the carpet, so I lifted it while I was hovering my butt over the seat, but then one […]


Okay I don’t know why I waited so long to update you guys on things because now I have no idea where to even begin or what to tell you about.  I think I was trying to get all my emotions under control so that I didn’t come back here and just write about how […]


Look, I was going to try to make today only about happy things but then it was the day that Jes left and I ended up crying like a big whiny baby.  Jes was the first friend I made in my department at work, and I have looked up to her ever since the first […]


Okay okay my weekend wasn’t exactly bleak, but it wasn’t full of vim and vigor either. Saturday was, of course, a work day.  Sunday we tried to go swimming but the pool was absolutely seething with screaming children so that didn’t quite pan out.  Yesterday I decided we should probably go do something, so I dragged […]

The Return of the Lunchblog

Okay I made a title and just started typing.  Let’s do this. Actually let’s not do much of anything, I’m tired. After a three-day weekend, work usually seems hard and boring.  Luckily, today has been relatively easy, and there was even cake!  One of my department’s managers is leaving after 6 years, so we had cake […]
