i love you, get the f*ck out of my room……and other random musings, as well as tacky tuesday

not sure if i have mentioned it but i share a room with my younger sister. she is going to be a senior in high school in the fall and to say that we are different people would be an understatement. she’s short, i’m tall. i'm 23, she's 16. she wears her hair curly, i wear mine straight. she's a fan of awkward high-top converse, i prefer fashionable sandals and the occasional heel. she listens to music that is either people screaming or sounds like dying cats, i listen to the beatles and kelly clarkson (amongst many others). i’m a fan of making my bed every morning, she is not. those are just a few of our many (wonderful) differences. i love my little sister, but i want her get the f*ck out of my room. thankfully my wish will soon come true. little sister is moving into our former garage/converted office. my dreams are coming true. at the age of 23 i will finally (finally!) have my own room. woo! now only if i can get a lock on my door….

my digital camera is basically dead. so sad. and what’s worse is that if i want a new one i have to either buy it myself or wait until christmas (december!) or my birthday (may…too far). Neither of those options sound too good. i am trying to save money and kind of just bought a rather large purchase and don’t really want to go spend another (around) $200. note to reader: i probably will, regardless of what is said here.

now, my rather large purchase is…......a new car! i got myself (really, all by myself) a brand new honda fit.

isn’t it so f-ing cute? it’s name is nug. it doesn’t really have a gender...it’s just nug. i used to have a jeep and i just couldn’t stand having an suv in this city anymore. it was chugging gas faster than drunk college girl chugs beer at a frat party. so i decided to get rid of it. i hadn’t initially thought i was going to get a car that day but i test drove 3 cars at honda (the fit was the 3rd...time's the charm) and i fell in love. we are totally bff and nug gets fab mileage. it has a 10 gallon tank and i got almost 250 miles (basically all street) on it in one tank. my jeep had a 20 gallon tank and got just over 200. (math time) so, i spend half as much on gas and fill up less often. i would say that mathematically that amazing and a worthwhile purchase. go me!

and now for tacky tuesday. this one is a doozey. i wish my camera was working so that the photograph was better, or that i could find it online, but i was able to snap a shot with my phone camera. enjoy the tack.

how bad is it? seriously? scale of 1 to 10. 1 being not tacky at all and 10 being “oh my gosh i could throw up and die from the tack.” it’s painful. in case you can’t tell, that is a pastel pumpkin wish fish coming out of it. i don’t know why, how, who, where, what. i know nothing except that it is terrifyingly tacky. so s clearly had to share.

next! woo! tv time! my sissy and her friend were having a convo and her friend said that, and i quote "tv is awesome." i must say that i agree whole-heartedly. tv is awesome.

the bachelorette season finale was last night and jillian chose ed. i love ed! i was sad when he left and happy when he came back. he fits her nicely. if the 'after the final rose' show wasn't on so late i would post this after, but i guess i'll just have to post again tomorrow about what happens.

until then, my friends........


  1. I love the Honda Fit! One of my coworkers has one and she LOOOOVES it. she commutes like 40 miles one way, so I can see why. I also like the Nissan Versa. I have a 4Runner now.

  2. we both got new cars! yay for us! i am extremely jealous of your honda fit, by the way.

  3. i have always loved corn and sour cream. i'm weird. actually, i love corn with anything and sour cream with anything... the possibilities are endless.

    meet my car!

  4. My dad has a honda fit. He loves his!

  5. Hey Penny Lane... ran across your blog on 20SB. Look forward to reading more of your blogs. Congrats on your new car! Nugs is adorable!

  6. Hahahaha, you gotta love anything where fish is part of the art... that shit rocks...
