Douchebro status: confirmed.

Basic gym day. Two miles of intervals. Too many (not enough) clean and jerks.

It’s too hot for a real meal. I’m eating a piece of tilapia, some frozen pineapple, and drinking all the seltzer. This book is supplementing any nourishment my diet may lack.

A classic.

The Princess Bride - “When I was your age, television was called books.”

I love that movie almost entirely for this one moment: “I want my father back, you son of a bitch.”

right?? i’m trying to be good to fit into a dress in a couple of weeks and then come the bacon maple donuts - good god.

um… why in the f*ck are you trying to diet? A) dieting is crap and unnecessary. B) Sugar and fat makes life worth living. C) If there’s less of you to love, I’ll cry

God yeah I totally agree but I’m doing it for the exact same reason as Doodle. 

I bought this Biba dress for my cousin’s wedding about 3 weeks ago. I loved it! Problem was there was only one left IN THE WORLD (that’s probably an exaggeration or whatever) and though it looks like it fits, the zip gets stuck hmm about half way up, eek!

Meh, I bought it anyway with the goal of shedding a few pounds in the 8 eight weeks I had. Now it’s five, and I’ve done fuck all but eat ridiculous amounts and pizza and Ben & Jerrys, so the diet starts today.

Fear not my Lady, I hate dieting and love ALL THE FOOD, so once this bloody wedding is over they’ll be plenty of me to love again :’)




In celebration, the Familia Cranquis is going out of town for the weekend!

(Actually, to a friend’s wedding somewhere in the US).

(No, not a wedding in Florida, which would be just too weird of a coincidence with TLOTH’s wedding-based Florida trip this weekend.)

I regret to inform you all that the queue, she is empty. So, there will be a paucity of posts this weekend. BUT, I will use this trip as an opportunity to get the ball rolling on that promised treasure hunt. (AHEM, Pranquistadors, have your deciphering fingers ready!)

so, this Ducks game is pretty intense. I have a hard time with team sports, because I sympathize with both teams. I can’t play team sports at all, but I like to watch some of them.

the Trojans are really making the Ducks work for it, and there’s a chance they might even pull off a win, but it’s still hard to see them when they’re disappointed. 

I honestly can’t remember how this conversation with Jennifer and the Lady and Doctor of The House started, but it went something like this…

me: I used to play softball and baseball, but I pretended to sprain my ankle so I never had to play in the games.

Dr Baffled: …why?

Jennifer: because she’s JULES.

me: well, I didn’t want to disappoint anyone by saying I didn’t want to play, but if I played well, the other team lost, and if I played badly, I let my team down. I felt terrible no matter what. but one time I actually sprained my ankle and didn’t have to play. I am super injury-prone, so no one suspected and it was a win no matter what. I got to play in the practices, and sit in the dugout and support the team at games, which was all I really wanted.  and then I broke my hand at the batting cages before the season started, the year I was on the baseball team, so I never played with that team. I just don’t want anyone to have to lose.

Dr Baffled: nope. if they wanted to win, they shouldn’t have lost. 

anyway, I’m doing what I do the way I always do. supporting my team from the sidelines, and feeling badly for them both when they struggle. xoxoxoxo


apparently I intend to only wear blue for the rest of the season.

ladyofthehouse replied to your post: so, um. …how many stripey blue sweater dresses is…

it’s not a problem until you need another closet. or four.

womaninterrupted replied to your post: so, um. …how many stripey blue sweater dresses is…

If you like it buy three, at least.

gingeredjess replied to your post: so, um. …how many stripey blue sweater dresses is…

There are never too many! I love those and if I could find them here, I’d have one too! <3

excellent advice! I opted for these three things. (not the skirt, but the sweater and both sweater dresses. I like the second one better, but if I lose any more weight it will be too big, hence the inability to make decisions. also that is just what happens to me in dressing rooms. and I also bought three pairs of leggings. I need more stockings too, but I want to go back to Sock Dreams in Portland for those, they have a great selection.) 

so this is what I brought into the dressing room. I might have a small fixation. but I still love my other stripey sweater dress more than any of these.

sorry there is so much of my face today, but you’re all used to it by now, right? xoxoxoxo

ladyofthehouse  asked:

Eeek! Eeek! You have a new Jooooob don't you?! You are going to do something WONDERFUL aren't you?! You're going to be somewhere where everybody knows how AMAZING you are, right? RIGHT?! EEEEEEEE!!!! [bounce bounce bounce]

this is a pretty perfect assessment of my news!

and what I think I can say without breaking the rules is that I am going to be working for an organization which does amazing community work that I believe in with my whole heart, where people love and appreciate me, and communicate openly and try to support each other in everything they do.

it is still part time, and still no benefits, but there is potential for longevity and expansion, the pay is better, and most importantly, I am going to be looking forward to going to work, feeling useful, and working with amazing people every day, and that is going to make my days and life better in so SO many ways, I cannot tell you.

(also bouncing and possibly twirling)

I didn’t know that there was anything on the back of my dalek dress until I put it on this morning. now I love it even more. (it says exterminate, in case you can’t read wrinkly mirrored writing) someone asked me if I was a ladybug, but I did have my hoodie over most of it so you can’t really blame him. he also told me he loves me but that’s just because I gave him money. still, nice to hear.

also, TLOTH sent me this incredible piece of jewelry, which there is probably a name for, and I love it so much. I want to wear it always. ♥ xoxoxoxo

Sneaky snarky...

I should be entering New York city limits at this time tomorrow!

To say I’ve got a few emotions running around right now would be an understatement. I feel bad for my first meet-up victim, TLOTH, that may just get squeezed too hard and pass out when we meet for a simple coffee.

charger? i don’t even know her.

These are pretty much the answers I would expect to get from you guys, thanks for never letting me down.

And I definitely expected that sort of answer from Heather.

Cody and I woke with the stomach flu. he is doing slightly better, I am getting slightly worse.

today was Comic Con badge day, with help from the Lady (who had already secured her own and the Mr’s badges, but wonderfully helped to get mine so I could get some for others), Erin, Sarah, Vasant, and I are also going to be at Comic Con on Thursday and Sunday (everything else sold out super fast! but yay, COMIC CON!)

I need to go lie down now. I am bringing my computer to the couch and will try to catch up with you while I rest a little. <3 xoxoxoxo

*ALLTHEHUGS!* agh, I wish I there was food teleportation! I’d send you cupcakes!

Mmm…. what kind of cupcakes.  I need to fantasize properly.

helms-deep replied to your postAll of the Feelings

Hugs and positivity being sent down south to you, buddy. You know what? You just need to get your butt up here and hang out for a week so we can cook and bake for you, and pamper the hell out of you. Just sayin’.

You better be careful or you guys are gonna wind up with an extended house guest.

You are allowed to have days like these. It’s human. Say the word and I’m on a plane out there. Okay?

baffledinbrooklyn replied to your postAll of the Feelings

I can ship TLOTH out there on a plane if you need. Just say the word.

Hehe, I love you guys.

Massive, cuddly hugs from you is like a total win.  I’m glad you’ve been back around, sweets.

America’s Got Talent makes me feel bad all the time, too. Except for those damn dogs—they got me, for some reason.

Yeah, the dogs totally got me too.  I don’t know what happened, but I was laughing aloud.

shovelbum replied to your postAll of the Feelings

HUGS!! Wish you were here, hugs and beers would be had. If it makes you feel any better, you are frequently in conversation. All good, of course. :)

Don’t worry! TLOTH is a certified hug transporter.  She should be giving you hugs from me, and I’ll be collecting hugs from you in July.

You and myturtlespeedy, saving my bad metaphors one comment at a time.

I also wanted to mention a few people who posted awesome comments earlier but Tumblr is being stupid and not letting me share them.

womaninterrupted who made me laugh thinking about sleeping in a bed of lettuce.

aliceadair who understands the importance of naps and pastries.

glitterbubbles who is also a certified hug transporter.

sallydoodle who occasionally feeds and waters me.

aprilkristin who peppers my ask box with side comments that make me smile.

Ugh.  I feel like I’ve listed a hundred Tumblrers, and yet still missed so many of you who are so wonderful and make me smile every day.  I’m so lucky to have such nice people following me.
