Cute kitty pictures are a necessity this week:

This kitten looks like I have felt all week (except she/he was able to maintain their cuteness, I don’t think I was able to do that):

Trivia Tuesday’s


Warning: array_key_exists() expects parameter 2 to be array, boolean given in /home1/es7400/public_html/wp-content/plugins/reaction-buttons/reaction_buttons.php on line 54

Trivia is just another form of random shit, so you know I love it.  Useless knowledge can help you impress people, or win shots at a bar.  It’s win-win all around.  So try your hand at these questions… NO GOOGLING!!!  I’ll post the answers in the comments section later today…

1) What was John Lennon’s middle name?

2) What are the only mammal’s that can fly?

3) How many U.S. states spellings end with the letters “ia”? What is it/are they?

4) What woman was the first playmate when Playboy was released in 1953?

5) In the year 1800, the federal government of the United States moved to its newly constructed capital in Washington, D.C., from what city?

Things I Live For: At the moment, not a damn thing.

As I writer, you have to be a reader, so I have found myself with a lot of books– too many for my current bookshelf.  And since I like to keep all the books I read and never give them away or pass on to friends, I knew I needed a solution.  There has been an empty space in my house that I thought would be perfect for a small bookshelf, but again, I lack the funds to spend $80 on one.  So as I was antiquing a few weekends ago, I discovered all these old wooden boxes that were being used to display various antiques.  I thought if I bought 4 or so of them, I could create my own bookshelf.  Awesome.  I found two boxes at a store in Indiana, and two more at a store in Michigan.  The boxes ranged from $3 – $14.  I was very excited to get them home and put my idea to work.  Here it is:

I really got lucky that these fit so perfectly into this spot as I did not have measurements!

The box on the bottom left is my favorite– it is an old ammo box.  It has metal handles on the side and weighs about 20 pounds– it was one of the more expensive ($14).

The vase is a Dollar Tree glass vase that I lined with a piece of scrapbook paper.  The branches I found on the beach in Michigan!

You may have also noticed that I grouped my books on the shelves according to color.  I got this idea from a Real Simple article and I really like the effect it gives.

All in all I am extremely excited about my bookshelves– I absolutely love them and the look they have!  I think they look a lot better than a run-of-the-mill, expensive bookshelf would look!  And we all know I love unique things!!  What do you think??

“Louisiana Rain”– Tom Petty

The Chesney version that is the jam:

AND, the hilarious baby Chesney version I found:

“Rock n’ Roll”–The Velvet Underground (but really Phish)

Pet Peeve of the Day: Creepy, scary Page, haha!
