I need to figure out what the f is going on for the next few weeks. Let’s see if I forget anything how much I forget.


  • I have a chiropractor’s appointment.
  • I also need to get a new debit card. (not sure why I thought I could do this and go to the chiro)
  • Maybe take all three (THREE!) dogs to the bark park? (raiiiiiiiin – ruining my life!)


  • I most desperately need to buy dog/cat food. All the animals be starving soon.
  • Exum is coming to take le poopie away. Apparently his LOVELY AND MOST KIND roommate is okay with him having the dog – he just doesn’t want to feel responsible for the dog. 8P
  • Mr. T is going to work on my garter tattoo again. After I don’t even want to know how many years. Pre-marriage, so at least three? Weee….


  • Get a new debit card! (It was at Mr. T’s grandmother’s house! Hooray for procrastination!)
  • I may try to go to the dog park in the morning, so I can see sweet Leeloo again. If her new daddy has the time. (I may not have the time, actually….I had forgotten about the Scentsy party!) (I was right – I did not have the time.)
  • Scentsy brunch with a girl from our small group at church.
  • Usually we’d have Two-Tone open, but we’re thinking of tailgating at MTSU’s football game (home against Memphis, if you care). Use it as an opportunity to advertise for the gallery and also not have to be in the gallery. It’s empty in there, guys. Empty. We’re supposed to be having “found object art” on display, but no one has brought anything in. >.< We have a little over two weeks before our next auction. Kind of scary! But we’ve pulled through in the past – I have faith in us doing it again. 8} I have a couple of ideas for making some found art of my own, actually!
  • I need to finish our bathroom! Or at least work on it some more. (NOPE. Maybe one day I’ll do this. >.<)
  • Mr. T and Smithy are supposed to be cutting down the Bradford pear in our backyard. *squee (Also, I’ve decided to name a former roommate Smithy because suck it – it’s my blog.)
  • We’re also going to see The Conjuring with some friends of ours. Spoooooky…. ;)


  • We have church in the morning.
  • Then there is lunch with Mr. T’s grandmother.
  • And that evening we’re going to Nashville to see Mr. T’s former manager and his wifey. Possibly grilling out? They’re foodies so she made amazing things and brought them to our house a couple weeks ago. I will not be able to return the favor. Pigs in a blanket, maybe? (This got cancelled and there was much rejoicing. Mr. T and I are such homebodies.)

Next Tuesday:

  • I’m having a crafty night at my house so I can do a couple of fun things for the gallery (see Saturday above).

Next Weekend:

  • Music Midtown!! We are leaving on Thursday night when Mr. T gets off work. The festival is Friday and Saturday and Sunday we’re going to explore Atlanta with our friends Sammie and Hagrid. Mr. T took Monday off but I have to be back at work. :(
  • This whole trip might be in jeopardy due to my uncle’s poor health. :( :( :( He was diagnosed with cancer last year and just recently took a turn for the worst. (Turn for the worse?) It’s….it’s kind of terrible.

Tuesday, Sept 24:

  • We have to get mini physicals at my office for our health insurance. SO MUCH FUN. We already had to get more involved physicals for our life insurance. Which, they sent us an email saying we could view our results, but we’re supposed to have a brochure with a bar code on it…and the lady didn’t give us one. So I put in a request for mine and so far they haven’t responded.

Saturday, Sept 28:

  • Partin Family Reunion! Shut up, WordPress – “Partin” is too a word. 8P
  • This is also the night of the Two-Tone silent auction. Not sure how that’s all going to work out. I may go up on Friday evening to see my family and then leave the reunion early (I’m actually not sure on the times for it…) to get back before the auction is too far along. Mr. T might just miss out on all the fun. I’m sure he’ll be heartbroken.

I am sure I have forgotten things. I apologize – this isn’t really a post for you. It’s my to-do list for the month. So I’ll probably come in and update it as the days pass. It will be riveting, I am sure.

I Got Nothin’

I’m really tired, you guys. I’m having a hard time coping with being an adult, lol. Anything I say other than that is just going to be a whiny, fwp kind of rant. I’m not up for doing two of those so close together.

But if I don’t complain about my white, middle-class life, what am I going to talk about??

I got nothin’.

did go clothes shopping yesterday! I’ve only gone shopping for clothes three times since starting my real-world job back in May 2012. This was the 3rd time. And the first time I bought new clothes! The other two times it was consignment. It’s kind of nice having clothes no one else has worn. >.< I did just go to Target (or Tar-zhay as I like to call it) but still…I’m working my way up the “I’m an adult!” ladder. I honestly hope to never reach the rung where I refuse to spend less than $100 on shoes, though.

These only cost me $20. 8}

Also, henna. Isn’t it awesome?? My friend Shells did it for me at Two-Tone’s silent auction last week. Well, she did my hands. She did the feet the next evening. She’s got mad skills, bro. Mad skills. The details are astounding! I’m eventually going to have her design an actual tattoo for one of my legs. Pretty stoked. 8}

Henna, henna everywhere.

I guess that’s all I really have for today. I think I’ve rambled enough for this post. And I didn’t complain! Too much! Go me! 8}

And so it begins…

I uploaded my first blog post, from back in 2011! It’s about like what I remembered. I’ll be curious to see how many images are missing – that one was supposed to have a picture of Mr. T and I and it did not. I was a little worried about losing comments, but… one every really comments on my blog, anyway. 8} So if I do end up finding a post with a comment, I’ll worry about it then. It may not come up for a long, long time. You guys suck is what I’m saying.

I took the dogs to the bark park today and they were soooooo happy! They’re passed out beside me right now. One farted earlier and I almost died. It was the most vile thing I’ve ever experienced. Yay, dogs! I’ve also taken a shower and shaved my legs. Like…real shaving, with the cream and a razor and sitting on the edge of my tub. Not doing a balancing act in the shower. They so smoooooth! I should really maintain that better. I hate having prickly legs but I am so lazzzzzzy. So lazy! In about 30 minutes I’m off to get a mani/pedi also. “Why all this pampering?” you might ask. “Good question.” I might say. Tonight is Two-Tone Art Gallery‘s silent auction!!

Not only are we having a silent auction, there will also be a body paint competition and live music! Mr. T’s friend Jonny Gowow is an amazing and hilarious keyboard player. His band The Japanese Cowboys played at our wedding after-party and were so much fun. They do a lot of covers, but Jonny has started writing his own music. It’s…glorious. lol! You can listen to some of it on his Facebook page that I linked earlier. I just started playing it and scared the bejeesus out of my dogs. 8}

I’m trying to figure out tags and categories. I don’t really know the difference between the two. I think I’ll try to keep it limited to one category and then have a ton of tags. Sure, why not? I want things to be more easily searchable now, but I may go overboard. And you’ll probably never notice either way! I do suggest you add me to an RSS feed or something, if you use one. I used to use Google Reader, but those heartless bastards dropped it like it was hot. So now I’m on Feedly. It’s not so awful. They try to be fancy, though. I just want to read my blogs – I don’t need it to look like a magazine or anything.
