I am in love

We are bunny sitting!

Oh my oh my!

The flash on my phone made her blink, but that's her.

Cinder the bunny.

I'm of course not calling her Cinder.

She deserves a cuter name like

Yummy Face.

Oh bunny-

she is so cute and sweet.

She fell asleep on me and we both can bond over kale

(although I prefer mine cooked)

She sheds a lot but I am hoping I can gather it up and felt with it.

So I can make my own miniature Yummy Face.

Bullet With Butterfly Wings

From the indignant* desk of Melanie:

*I'm not sure if I have used indignant already.

If so, how about anarchistic?


I'm in serious flat low to the ground mode.

At work, plenty of stuff to do, not motivated to do much (but sulk?)

surrounded by papers, clutter and coffee stains

and I've got Smashing Pumpkins as my internal soundtrack.


"Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage."

You and me both Billy.


Looking forward to a longish weekend

but Monday brings fresh Hell.



Today I want to find me a treasure and bring it back to my little secret room.


--Oh just noticed that I used "indignant" in my last post...


Even I ignore myself.

Lucky Strike

From the indignant desk of Melanie:

I'm a little pissed off at work today so I'm being broody and calling a strike.

I give you (work) a (virtual) middle finger.

And some serious "whatevers" (not going to name names -yet)

I pray my days here are numbered.

5 years is plenty.

I have done my time.

I should get out for good behavior

(more or less)


One child on a plane today.

(Have fun my dear!)

Hubby might be taking off soon, followed by sonshine perhaps?

Which leaves me

Festering at home

Binge eating (or not eating at all)

and watching way, way, way too much television for these old pair of eyeballs.


Can't or won't do:

White jeans

lamb (in any form of a meal)

gladiator shoes or boots

Real Housewives of Any County

Mariachi music on the radio

Christian rock

Intentionally not wearing deodorant (damn smelly hippies!)

travel to India

Summer Loving Happened So Fast

From the easily amused desk of Melanie:

Wearing one of my favorite shirts.

Yup, this is as stylish as I get.

Which isn't saying much I suppose.


Fog City =San Francisco

Wrestlers =Roller Derby babes

Purple tee =

Heck yeah!


Life is stress full.


Need to improve my financial situation (20 years ago).

Why? Why? Why?

Like the white rabbit in Wonderland

"I'm late."


Hands down Amal Clooney is one amazing dresser.

Kudos to the smart and stylish.

Love this look of hers!

George and Amal Clooney continue his 54th birthday celebrations in LA #dailymail

I am looking forward to change

and a thinner me.

Now how to make it happen...

Not(e) Worthy

From the mildly acerbic desk of Melanie:

Today I wore my new (to me) dress.

I think it is Mexican--it has a very Frida feel to it.

I have actually gotten many compliments on it.


So although I feel like I'm wearing a slightly fancy rectangular pillow case 

I'm good with it.

I kept the rest of my outfit simple.

Flowers in my hair might be too over the top

don't you think?


I adore the music to this Alt-J song (Dissolve me).

I think it's mainly synthesizers doing most of the work (plus a snare drum perhaps?)

The band keeps impressing me with their unique sound.

Enjoy and let me know if it rocks your boat as much as it rocks mine.


So excited-- I am going to be bunny sitting soon. 

Cinder is a mini lion lop and is so cute. I hope he loves me too!!!

Mass sterilization

From the innocuous desk of Melanie:


I work for a place that is so matchy-matchy and incredibly well put together and simply said

"picture perfect."


Devoid of personality, it radiates conformity, monotony and

mass produced consumption for the wealthier.

In other words, mass sterilization.

I am rebelling against this lackluster in my own very stupid way.


By sporting questionable accessories 

and "stylizing" my cube with weirdo subversive stuffs.

Yes, I know, it's so stupid.

But, when you are on the bottom of the totem pole

stupid is all you got.

So whoop there it is.

Fighting banality with any (imbecile) means necessary!


My iPhone says it all.


(with the help of Andre the Giant)


I find it weird that people hang up pictures of celebrities in their homes.

Don't you?

I mean it's okay if you took the picture (ie.. you are a professional photographer),

 but I find it kind of pathetic (sorry) to have a photo of someone like 

Kate Moss in your living room

(I mean, let's face it, she could really give a skinny rat's ass about you.)

I get having Jesus or Buddha, but a model?

Really, she is that important to you, or is her image simply an object

 like a pretty vase?

Buffalo Soldier

From the petulant desk of Melanie:

Damn, it's a Monday.

One day I'll be:
Courageously true,
Beautifully funny,
Creatively enthusiastic,
Ridiculously generous,
Flexibly patient,
Insightfully wise,
Persistently loving,
Authentically happy.

In the mean time, I will just take less stressed out.


Saw Me, Earl and the Dying Girl.

Super cute indie film with a touch of whimsy.


Can you use these random words in your day today?


Let me know if you have been successful.


I'm not sure why there is so much hype about mid-century furniture.
It just looks old and dated to me.
Well, good job with the branding whoever thought of it.
Take old ugly furniture, give it a respectable name and charge a lot for it.
Stupid hipsters.


Antibiotics is helping with the cough.
I feel less germy.
Plus I'm not so dependent on cough drops.
Which is a good thing
because too many cough drops make your tongue feel all scratchy
Like a cat's tongue.
