It should come.... no surprise to anyone that a solid, well-rounded adult probably had a fairly normal, happy childhood and adolescence. Here is a snapshot from my youth, circa 1992, followed by some choice comments from my nearest & dearest, who upon viewing this photo for the first time, were not shy in sharing their reactions. Please tell me you were in your "leonardo dicaprio - romeo" phase? - Former co-worker I think its adorable that you guys look like old-timey Amish sisters. - My Uncle ♫ Purple rain! Puuurrrple raaaain! ♫ - Close friend Wow. I think I am going to break up with you. - My Boyfriend Who's that hot androgynous guy in the puffy shirt? It's like The Cure meets Johnny from Catwalk. - Another close friend
How's that for Grim? Happy Monday.

I bridged the gap....

....between "productive/innovative" and "weird/sad" when I handmade a dog bed I saw on Pinterest this past weekend. And yes, I realize I am one step away from being someone who knits sweaters for cats. If you have ever wondered what your dog's depression expression would look like, I could make your pet a dog bed too so you could find out.

About 3 seconds.... I realized the VHS copy of Dr. Doolittle 2 that we had picked up this past summer for Portia was in fact not very child-friendly after all. I may have just stumbled across one of the glaringly obvious drawbacks of garage sale purchases. On a sidenote....anyone need a VHS copy of Kaytel Video's "Lesbos"?
