She’s winning

Open letter to the irrational terrorist who sometimes sleeps in the room next to mine: First you win me over with your delicious jelly-roll thighs and ridiculous curly red hair. Sure, I questioned your genetic origins, considering the fact that your blue eyes seem to be for keeps. Remind me again how a Greek man and a French woman came together to make an Irish baby? Never mind, it’s not important. The point is, even when I question our kinship while you scoop out a fist full of butter cream icing from your mouth in Read More →

Party of one

Left to my own devices I go wild with the felt and paper products. I did, however, have the good sense not to touch that rotary cutter after a glass of wine.
