Me: What would her talent be in a cat pageant?
Ryan: Being an asshole.

He's a good parent people, I swear.

Mr Pickles

Finished knitting this little man this weekend. Named him Mr Pickles.
I'd love to share with y'all how we decided to name the rest of the kids, but seriously its one of the most amazing ideas Ryan and I have ever had, so it needs to stay top secret until Artomatic. Let's just say it involves one Netflix and one of my most faaaavorite things.
My mom thinks Pickles needs a heart. Y/N?

The daily 1/19

Coffee, one of my favorite christmas tree ornaments that hangs on the kitchen chalkboard wall year round, and one of my favorite bible memory verses I keep in constant view, the same one that's stamped on the silver cuff I made in metals class.
Look at that chipped nail polish. Quel horror!!

At least I can make a shank out of Jolly Ranchers

Seriously, if anyone saw my Netflix queue, I would probably be institutionalized.  Or at least have my mental state questioned.  Here's the genres that I watch:

Prison shows.  A lot lot LOT of prison shows.  Lockup, Lockdown, do the hokey pokey and turn yourself around.  I have no idea when I became so obsessed with prison shows.  I also have ones queued up about Gitmo, being in solitary, etc etc.  Along with watching entirely too much Law and Order and now feeling that I can catch any perp, I am clearly now supremely qualified to be a corrections officer...which I actually really want to be, but Ryan is categorically opposed to.  BIG TIME.

Fame (not the movie, for all you people to young to the early 80s, there really was an actually television show for it.  AND I LOVE IT.  Coco, Martelli, them all!!!!) 

A large mess of terrible reality shows.  TERRIBLE. 
Ruby -I know, I have no idea why I love her.  Maybe because even though she's up against so much she's always so "hacky."
Toddlers and Tiaras-I just like to scream at the TV about how effed up these parents are and how their three year olds look like they're 40
Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders Making the Team-I love cheerleading stuff.  I'll even watch those competitions on ESPN

Religious/Paranormal/Spiritual programming-I love Vatican, Judaica (thats my new big one), anything dealing with Santeria, posession, faith based miracles, etc

Transgender/Gay/Drag Queen documentaries (I LOVE documentaries in general-thats 85% of my queue, but somehow I managed to add like five transgender documentaries last week haha)

Mentally disabled/autism documentaries ESPECIALLY if they deal with mental instituations from the 50s-80s.  I know, I have problems. 

Oh yeah.  Somewhere in there I watch normal stuff like oh, MOVIES.  I did watch White Oleander last week.  I thought it absolutely sucked compared to the book.  They took a beautiful meaty book thats like a 3" paperback and shrank it to a weak watered down movie.  Skip the movie, read the book.

And stay out of my netflix queue.  It'll warp your mind. ;)

No one in the family is normal.

This was Lucy's favorite place to sleep during Christmas.  She's a good 3.5' off the ground.

Best thing ever.

Theadosia Sweet Dabilis. My not-niece. Best baby in my life. Future bank balance ruiner. Subject of many photo shoots. Recipient of Chanel nail polish on her fifth birthday. I can not wait for all the fun I am going to have with this little girl. <3
