 Things I was hoping to do with the leftover $ at the end of this month:

order a plastic mattress cover since the cat keeps peeing on the bed
put aside cash to buy a new bicycle at big bike fair thing in February
buy a couple pairs of work pants
go grocery shopping
pay a little extra towards my credit card bill
refill my prescription toothpaste (with mint flavor this time!)

Things I will actually be doing with end of the month $:

nothing. alternators are expensive, I will never pay off my credit card and I will clearly be in debt forever.

Everything will be fine (provided there are no emergencies of any sort) and I'm neither at risk of starving or becoming homeless but there's something particularly frustrating and depressing about being in this state at the age of 30, while holding down a full-time, professional, salaried position in my field for the last 6 years (started directly out of graduate school). Also, the minor crying fit in my office that my boss caught the tail end of was a lovely cherry topper to the sundae of my feelings. /whine

So that run was a success in as much as I put on the outfit, left the building and spent some period of time traveling at a pace faster than walking. Sometimes that's about as much as one can ask for I guess.

Not that I ever post or am even ready to give up my lurker card...but guys, RIpper Street is awesome and why is no one (*in the places I read) talking about it?!? Also, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries = BEST or BESTEST. Discuss.

THIS SUNDAY (September 11) is the B'eat More Pie Fest, Baltimore's first (as far as we know) pie festival! I am one of the founders of this event and if you're in the area and like PIE you should come! Even better, you should enter our pie competition! It's free and for a good cause. There will be live music throughout the day. We'll be raffling off whole pies and selling tasting bites of the competition pies. All proceeds will be supporting Heart's Place Shelter.

Check out our website: You can also register your pies for competition online!

The Details:

WHEN: 12:00pm - 3:00pm, Sunday September 11

WHERE: St. Johns Church, 2640 St. Paul Street, Baltimore MD

WHAT: An awesome celebration of pie!!!

We've also had a few of our vendors drop out, so if you have something to sell, we've got table space! We're not charging a fee for vendors but we are asking for a donation to the Shelter in the form of 10% of the day's profits. If you're interested in a table, send me an email at

1. Bring my lunch to work almost every day.
2. Follow through on the little, slightly-ridiculous thoughts I have.

3. Keep track of books read (in that vein: Neverwhere, Daddy Long-Legs, Odd and the Frost Giants)
4. Go to the Gym 4 times a week (so far so good, started in December)
5. Improve dental care (mmm, yay floss)
6. Reduce credit card balance 50% (this might have to be revisited as too optimistic, but hey, start strong, see how that goes)
7. Get a passport

There are plenty of others, but let's be somewhat realistic here, yeah?

Ha. So, it's been a bit of a weekend.

20-mile bike ride + pedicures on Saturday, with bonus!Emu. A note: girl pelvises are not shaped like boy pelvises. This means that boy bike seats? Not the best, really.

Friend's bday party Saturday night, in Rockville. Slept on couch.

Drive home Sunday morning. Get hit by a taxi. Awesome. I'm ok (sore, but ok). My car is sad :(

Oh, and the wedding I'm best woman for? Is next Saturday. I am making 600+ hors d'ouerves for said wedding. And am carless.

So yeah, this is just to whine a litte.

Because it is. Mostly becuase I get to do stuff like this. Which is (if I do say so myself) an AWESOMELY FUN video. There's more info at my work blog (which also includes the evolution of this particular mean, for your viewing pleasure). Anyway, you should definitely go watch it, as at the very least your day will be brightened by me looking ridiculous (in a happy and not-at-all embarrassed way). I'm enjoying my slow, but inevitable rise to internet stardom ;)

... And frankly, uploading my little post-it giraffe has been the best part of a rather trying day. Go forth, ye and giraffe!

Look, Library - if you are going to say you are open on Sundays, October - May you MIGHT WANT TO BE OPEN ON SUNDAY, MAY 30TH! Or, if you don't feel like being open PERHAPS YOU SHOULD POST THAT ON YOUR GODDAMN WEBSITE. JUST A THOUGHT.

No Love,
Me, who just tramped 2+ miles in the blazing sun AND DOES NOT HAVE ANY BOOKS TO SHOW FOR IT.

-shredded homefries
-fresh fruit
-quinoa multigrain bread w/a variety of spreads

yum yum!
