My Fair Lazy - Jen Lancaster *Updated*

It took me a while to finally pick this up (really download for listening), but I have to say, Hoorah!


Jen Lancaster is so good at what she does it’s silly.


In Such a Pretty Fat, she made me want to get healthier, even if I have to work at it, and in My Fair Lazy she totally makes me want to get off my ass and do something interesting. Open my mind to new things. Her Jen-aissance might just be what I need too.


I think if more of the American populace were to dig into cultures and do it to learn, we might really grow as a country.


But enough of that, this is simply a really funny look into one woman’s attempt to find culture and class instead of being cultureless and clueless.


Look into it, it makes me want to do things instead of watching others do them for me.




Mystery Costume

I have finally started work on my costume this year. I have been putting it off for a while now. I was going to be Peggy Bundy but I just wasn’t feeling it. I have decided to go with something I have been thinking through for a while…


Here are your clues:


Purple Lamé

Black (crepe backed) Satin

Purple (crepe backed) Satin

Coat Hangers

Pillow Stuffing (tmi?)

Green Corduroy

Lime Green Tulle

Possibly a Hula-Hoop

Lots of Hairspray

White Hair Color Spray

3 Sea Shells

Misc Make-up



I will do my best to come up with a gift for the first person to correctly guess, and so you can have hints along the way I will let you in on what I am doing occasionally.


Right now I am making Purple Lamé yo-yo’s and I took apart a pair of dark green cords (as an aside I am attempting a skirt for regular wear out of the top of these).


I hope to find some way to post pictures by way of e-mail entries but I’m not too hopeful.


P.S. Salt, no giving it away ;-)


well crap!

I guess we just won’t be enjoying anymore pictures.


I’m sorry.


That means I will have to learn how to make thousands of words make sense.




Wish me luck!


Also, I will be deleting those test e-mail-to-blogs.

They anger me.

This is a test

This is a test of the e-mailing blogger system.

If this had been a real blog, pictures would be posted here:

With instructions to follow, such as:

Please leave comments regarding content
Feel free to exit without commenting due to severe cases of lurking
Encouragement to enjoy the rest of your day
Not to fear. Barbie’s fate does not have to be yours, simply follow the rules and no one gets hurt.

This has been a test.

Thank you


blog by phone *Updated*

I have come to the realization that trying to blog with only a qwerty phone keyboard sucks. It is hell, especially when you have 2 big thumbs.
What I really need to look into is blogging by e-mail. That should be an option. Especially since I am too poor for internet or a computer (at home).
Guess the phone will just have to be good enough for now.


I am slow.
Have set up my blog by e-mail.
Posting might occur regularly now.
Please pay no attention to the (wo)man behind the curtain.
