Where am I?

Hey kids, sorry about the delay, and about the fact that these pictures are a solid month old. I realized while I was uploading them that I couldn't hope to hide this fact because there's a freaking Christmas tree figure in all the shots. 

The upside is that I no longer have this inexcusable mullet. I chopped it off myself like the the head of a French aristocrat. Viva la Revolution!

Just in case you're curious, my main cause of busyness has been kicking a respectable amount of ass as a free agent. No longer stuck with my old 9-5 job, I've been hustling an okay living so far as a freelancer. I'm working hard and writing a lot and very, very happy. Also, if you need somebody to write and/or copy and style edit your press releases, professional correspondence, ad copy, web content, term papers, or anything else, shoot me an email and I'll give you my rate. :)

Oh yeah, and Happy New Year!

We spent  the stroke of midnight on New Years on our floor, as usual. We hope you have a kickass new year. :)

Happy Holidays!

I was having kind of a tough day recently, what with my job, the respiratory infection (which resisted a run of antibiotics! Kind of impressive), and a hilariously bad haircut from the lady filling in for my injured stylist. So MC surprised me with an early Christmas gift: this dress! He saw me looking at it on Etsy and he knows I love '70s maxis and red velvet. He and Gbear coodled all over me and I was right back to feeling like the luckiest girl in the world. 

We hope you have lots of chances this season to feel all the joy of the little (or big) moments that make  life so wonderful. Thanks for being part of our weird internet world. We love you.

Last Hurrah

For our last company Christmas party before about half of us are let go, we went a little bonkers for a fine evening of bowling, drinks, and cray cray karaoke. These are just a few of the pictures we took. Fuck, we're gonna miss everybody so much.

TV Star Sweater

I couldn't figure out who this very '80s outfit reminded me of.

Then It hit me: Angela from Who's the Boss?

My sis-in-law Alessandra thought it looked like like something Anne Archer would have worn in Fatal Attraction:

This shoot actually had a lot of strange moments.

Awkward, unintentional Brooke Shields Calvin Klein ad parallel:

Strange moments with Chi:

Also, I need to publish a novel because I somehow ended up with a book jacket photo circa 1982:

Lastly: these photos should not be taken as an endorsement of Heinlein's Expanded Universe. Not his best, you guys, not his best.
