Month: February 2010

Ghost town

I feel like I’ve given up blogging for Lent. I HAVEN’T.  I promise. Still, though – it’s like a ghost town around these parts. What happened to those months in 2008 when I was posting every single day?  I was an ever-flowing fountain of entertainment!  Bra shopping?  Check.  Sprite sprayed you-know-where?  You got it.  Annie…

Assumption

The kindest thing that anyone could ever do for me would be to do my taxes*. As of this weekend, that makes my dad the nicest person on the planet. But here’s a word to the wise, my friends: do not just assume that you are going to get a tax refund, and then go…

Keep walking

There are a lot of days that I don’t feel like blogging.  You would think that with my complete absence of a social life in a city where I am totally anonymous, I would have all the time in the world to come up with universe tilting posts – but no.  Sometimes life is just…

Annie Parsons: Ex-Con

Although I watched the opening ceremonies of the Olympics last week, I have yet to watch an actual Olympic.  However, I must say that I’m liking Shaun White these days.  I don’t know why – I never paid him any attention before.  But isn’t he so likable?  His big smile and happy heart? Don’t you…

A-E-I-O-U

Yesterday morning, I woke up wishing to think of a word that contained all 5 vowels.  “To me,” I thought, “that would feel like winning the lottery.” I never claimed to be cool, people. A few hours later, when Greta was driving me to the airport, we were behind a Toyota Sequoia. SEQUOIA.  Boom: jackpot.…

Seattle love

I am on vacation in Seattle, and my heart is so happy I could cry. Last night, as Greta and I were settling in to go to sleep, she asked if she should wake me up in the morning.  In a moment of Shakespearean inspiration, what I meant to say was, “I’m sure I will…

Indicative of things to come

One time, when I was 5, we lived next door to a girl my age.  Her grandparents gave her a Popple.  I wanted it so badly that I asserted my Alpha Girl status, and she gave it to me. A few days later when her grandparents found out she gave it away, they sent her…

Boring expenditures

I just got back from the DMV, i.e. The Worst Place On Earth. Actually, I experienced another place this weekend that would rival the DMV for that title: Micro Center. I took my fritzy Macbook to the Apple Store on Saturday, and the self-assuredly dubbed Apple Genius told me that yes, I needed a new…

A little late

What? It’s February – and four days in already? The month of the Superbowl, the Olympics, and my half-birthday (today!)? I forgot to pay my rent. FORGOT. That will be remedied ASAP. In the meantime, now seemed like a good time to update the About Me and FAQ pages here on ye olde blog.

Slate grey and fabulous

I have officially reached adulthood, and ordered my very first piece of brand new, custom furniture. It should be here in a few weeks. In a world where I trust that I will always have what I NEED, it’s a humbling luxury to – every now and then – get what I WANT.  I am…
