Mornings Smokes & Mayhem

mornings, smokes and mayhem

This morning at 4:30 AM I was out on the building’s amenity deck having a smoke. The deck itself is locked down during those hours but there is a little tiny smoking patio there outside the building doors. And I had my smoke. And I headed back inside.  And there was screaming.  Full throated screaming. […]

Wow, I have been a bad blogger. I have not posted in forever. Ahhh! Sorry about that. I should update you on the upcoming :::September 2018 Classes::: Hit that link. Doy. In other news, I destroyed the desk chair again. This is the result of working too many hours in a chair just basically destroying […]

hands of blue

Me staring in bathroom cupboard searching for cleaning products because the shower stall floor is looking not sparkley white and, to be truthful, a little hinky (Austin water is strange and not to be trusted, things water-esque in Austin turn orange if you do not stay on top of them): Oops, all out of hinky-shower-type […]
