Lookit!!! Lookit!!! It’s here a day early!!!

Thank you, Jennifer Lawson! 

(Beeteedubs, if you haven’t gotten to know Jenny Lawson, GET TO KNOW HER!

Not for the early delivery because you didn’t have anything to do with that…? that I know of… ? or did you? ? Maybe you’re just THAT hawsum!!! 

Thank you for writing for us. The misfits, the outcasts (usually by our own making), the shamed souls with the shade of mental illness, and the people who love us, every day, just the way we are. 

 :’o)  (there’s no emoji for a smiley face with one tear. someone get on that. stat.)

You. Are. Welcome.

So to some of us it seems our republic is imploding and we might do with a distraction from the (now crippled) news. #whatfirstamendmentA candle warmer will keep your tea or coffee at the perfect temperature indefinitely. Perfect for those who have a tendency to get distracted and wander off and go, “Oh, oh, oh, wait; I was doing that -other- thing” and then come back to (surprise!) hot tea or coffee.

P.S. Not that I would know anything about that getting distracted nonsense. 

P.P.S. When I do, I really -do- say, “oh, oh, oh,” just ask Tom.

Poor woman’s standing desk

messy desk with a cute JRT under it
Elli is a big help. (Please excuse the mess. Cluttered desk, brilliant mind, yadda.)

I’ve been having a lot of sciatica pain and finding it hard to work more than an hour at a time. I started looking at “standing desks.” $500-$1000+?! Um, no.
Four 12″ high concrete blocks from Menards for $7.58. BOOM. DONE.
P.S. My desk is a 3’x8′ table that a church was gonna throw away. Works just fine. Bonus: loyal dog that sticks to me like stink on shit. Comes with $2 rug from The ReStore.
I know, sitting on two 12 packs of soda stacked on a bar chair doesn’t do my back any favors; so I did invest $74 in a good ergonomic drafting chair from Amazon that’ll arrive tomorrow.
But $7.68. I’m pretty damn proud of myself.
