Lampshade? All one word?
Lamp shade? Two words?
You know my obsession with old lamps.
You know my utter and complete disdain for finding lamp shades for old lamps.
I bring you the perfect combination ...
The lamp was scavenged our our summer trip.
I got the lampshade this weekend from my boyfriend.
You know my boyfriend, Craig List!
Holy mother of mid-century, it's mine mine mine!!!!
I love it to the depths of it's lampish little soul.
Would you like to see another picture?
How about another?
No, just kidding.
Nothing else really mattered other than this, but let's see what I can scrounge up.
Oh, Oh, I know! I lost my diamond earring that I got for my 40th birthday!!
I was sitting at my bff Jessica's house and she screeched out, "You're missing an earring!"
I had been all over the freaking place that day including a run at Lady Bird Lake.
I really thought it was hopeless. (I guess I just gave it away, but stay with me to see where I found the little bugger.)
I ripped my car to pieces. Like a crazy madwoman. Knowing in my heart that it was an impossible task.
But then, then I saw the back of it squished down in the car seat where the seat and the back meet!!!
That gave me hope. Not that finding the back means anything because the diamond could still be anywhere.
I ran inside and got my strongest cheaters and a headlamp.
I looked at every single tiny bit of every single thing when .... oh! what is that?
The stem of the earring was sticking out of that tiny slot next to the emergency brake!!
Did I run inside and grab tweezers so as not to lose it into the vortex of hell below the brake?
No. I did not.
I grabbed it ever so carefully and ....
Ran back inside, cursing and swearing, and kinda crying. Grabbed a bunch of tools and proceeded to rip the shit out of my center console.
Like this ...
And thar she blows.
I was more careful this time and used the tweezers.
Happy ending, y'all.
Pretty exciting, huh?
This was exciting too ...
Last minute concoction of black quinoa, shrooms, and spinach.
I ate a vat.
FinnigantheCurious is a sick puppy.
So rare for us to be sick twice in one year, but sick he is.
This means that we "had" to watch Glee (Season 4 is out thank god!) and Modern Family for hours on end.
Popcorn and good TV is really good for you.
How was your weekend?
Did you make that tomato and corn soup?
Huh? Huh? Did you?
It's Thanksgiving week!
I'm off to Grandmary's tomorrow, but I'll try to check in.
Whachoo doing for TG?
