secondhand; first place


...especially after the recent thrifting trip with Ruth that yielded two tweed dresses, a fucking sweet jean jacket, and four state tourist plates.

And yes, I am keeping my best thrifts secret. A lady never tells.


bookend beer

Rounding out the last official weekend of summer with a shower beer: that's how we do.

I have had this single Three Floyds Jinx Proof in my fridge for ALMOST A MONTH NOW since coming back from Michiana and have been saving it for shower beer and my lord, do you know how hard it is to come home from work and think "I JUST WANT A GODDAMN BEER" and open your fridge to see this lone delicious beer taunting you, saying "but I'm for the shower, D, and you cannot have me!"

Right. I'm probably the only person who imagines beer talking to me and mocking me. Onward.

  • Refreshingness: (8) Yum. Crisp as fuck.
  • Lack of slipperyness when you are holding the beer with potentially soapy hands: (8) I really overestimated my clumsiness when creating this ratings category. One year later, and I have not dropped booze on myself in the shower ever! Achievement unlocked!
  • Does it smell weird when I drink it right after using my bergamot body scrub?: (7) Upside: having a beer in the shower and having to think about the taste when covered in body scrub reminds me to, y'know, actually exfoliate.
  • Bonus round: Meteor shower beer! (+5) 

Three Floyds Jinx Proof shower beer score: 29 (out of 35)


saturday soundtrack

I made you a mixtape, because fall is the best. And because I am obsessive about soundtracking.
