Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a wonderful family, friend, and food filled day.

Life has been well, consisting of work, work, work, reading, Matt, the Neencat, my four-month-old niece, and alternately cleaning and neglecting to clean the apartment.

I have had a big time crush on the prints from Keep Calm since Alyson Fox did a post about them on the D*S guest blog; the crush then intensified when Joy at Oh Joy! posted about the "Tea Revives" prints earlier this month. Not only are the prints well-designed and accessible-- tea DOES in fact revive!

From Keep Calm. Prints by Lucas and Hayley, Keep Calm's founding couple, unless otherwise noted:

To go next to the front door, as a last reminder for the day ahead.Collapse )
Not that I'm about to start rooting for the Cowboys or anything, but I really appreciate the way Mike Gundy hands arguably the lamest sportswriter ever, Jenni Carlson, her head on a plate. It's been called a tirade and an outburst, but I'd agree with a Deadspin commenter on this one: as he put it, "He was borderline eloquent."

My super awesome work schedule (for all three jobs combined) is as follows:

Sunday 12:30-6:30
Monday 7:30-11:30, 12:30-6:30 plus about 6 hours for baking after we close
Tuesday 7:30-11:30, 12:30-3, 3-7:30 (usually it's only 12:30-4:30, but this week I went into Forward Foods since Suzy and Wampus were in New York)
Wednesday 7:30-11:30, 12:30-4:30 (This felt like a weekend. I didn't know what to do with myself, besides get a haircut.)
Thursday 7:30-11:30, 12:30-4:30, 5-7:30
Friday 11:30-7:30 (oh, sleeping in.)
Saturday 9:30-5:30

I know you all wanted to know that. The real reason I'm posting this is because I'm working something like 68 hours this week. Next week, I'll be working only 66!

It's fine, though, because it's only until August, and then I'll have three days off in the middle of the week-- until August 15th, when I go back to North, and then I guess it will be pretty similar, except no Monday or Friday shifts, plus working at North isn't exactly strenuous. Also, I got a raise, so I'm going to be sort of not poor, at least for a couple of months.

I like proving to myself that I'm not a total lazy bones, just sort of a little bit of one.

I'm ready to skip right over the Libertine collection for Target's Go! International line and dive into the Erin Fetherston delights, in spite of their creepy Lolita-esque qualities. It doesn't look like Target has officially announced Erin as the next Go! designer after Libertine, but given that the images are up, I'm setting my heart(handbag in red, $29.99) on an Erin Fetherston landing soon.

Also, happy Norman Day (and Fourth of July to all you non-Normanites)! Three cheers for Norman (and also America, if that's your thing)! Go Thomas Jefferson! Boo King George III!

Matt would also like to extend a cheer for Richard Jefferson, who I'm sure had little, if anything, to do with our reasons for celebrating this, a most glorious day.

Thank you.

Hey Chicago, what do you say? The Cubs are gonna win today!

The sunny lazy summer I'd been planning hasn't really panned out, but the baseball's coming along just fine.

I just watched the ninth inning of the Cubs-Brewers game three times, (yay, TiVo!) and I can feel the rain-induced grumpiness starting to life. Suddenly, life feels worth living. Add to that the fact that it was the Cubs seventh straight win and that now that Michael Barrett is gone the Cubs have stopped beating each other up, and we might as well have won the pennant. Or something like that.

Probably any other baseball fan wouldn't get excited about these things, and probably the Cubs will make me want to throw something larger than a baseball at them next week, but for right now things are great. I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts.

I'm going to let one of the kittens write an entry.

He says,

Roy, Jr."

Hey, look, he tagged it, too! He's so good at typing!

Why don't we have Checkers? Why did I just learn of this?

The website is nothing short of amazing.

Thanks to Margo for enlightening me.
