I’m just saying … I think it would encourage me to pay better attention to the directions.

“Turn … LeeeeEEEEFT!”

Because frankly, right now she sounds all hoighty-toighty and bossy.

I used to think that my father’s pug was clinically insane. Then I decided that I was being culturally insensitive.

I like to describe my brother as a triple threat: he’s an actor. And an asshole. And he’s my brother.

That counts as three things, right?

Oh, and occasionally he takes photos of things. Which you’d think would make him a quadruple threat. But really, most of his pictures just reinforce the fact that he’s kind of an asshole.

And with that preamble, I give you this week’s Tuesday Reverie:

It’s Valentine’s Day, and I’m sure a lot of you are prematurely wincing in anticipation of the sappiness I’m about to post.  Those of you who truly plan ahead might have even placed a trash can at your feet, so that when you projectile vomit from the sheer adorability that is me and my husband, you will have a receptacle at which to aim.

Fortunately, there’s no need for it, because this post is not about me and Rand. No, seriously. It’s not. Traditionally, Valentine’s Day isn’t even a romantic holiday for us (we prefer going out on February 15th).

Those conversation hearts that easily double as sidewalk chalk.

Just a reminder kids, that vanity will get you nowhere. It’s why Charlize Theron got an Oscar after shaving off her eyebrows.

I am starting a new feature on the blog. I hope it will serve me manifold: that it will impart a little more structure into my oh-so-random-blog, and that it will give me an opportunity to share some of the strange and fleeting notions that enter my head.

The premise is simple: I take a random photo from one of my trips, and I add some text that reveals whatever nonsense is going on in my brain. Simple. Easy. Random. Like LOLcats, minus the cats. I did a test-run last week, and I liked the result.
