This story begins before Valentine's Day. I came home, and my sweet uncle who's way too generous with his time and resources (which I take full advantage of) had bought an enormous bouquet of red roses from Whole Foods, because apparently the Kraken saw them and insisted I needed one. They sat on the mantle … Continue reading Am I Becoming A Witch?
This week we've all been laid low with a fiendish combination of runny noses, sore throats, and pink eye, which basically means the entire apartment, including its occupants, are disgusting.

I volunteered at a nature center in high school, and wound up in charge of the lizard-bug-turtle-snake room, possibly because I was so obviously trustworthy and qualified, but probably because no one else wanted to do it. Either way, … Continue reading Baby Iguanas Are Maniacs
