in which… I have a weakness

It’s kind of a strange weakness… But if you’ve learned nothing about me, learn this…

I tend to be a little weird…

Back to the weakness, ready for this? Coffee mugs. Yep. It is. I have a weakness for coffee mugs. I love to buy them. LOVE to. I’ve got tons of them, in crazy shapes/colors/designs. I have quite the collection. And it grew a little last night… I had 30 minutes of time to kill in town last night, so I popped into the dollar store. *mistake* Lo, and behold, some beautiful coffee mugs, arranged on a rack, stood out to me as desperately in need of some tender care and a warm home. I knew they must be mine. So I bought them, cleaned them up a bit, and named them.

I know… It’s weird… But normal people are boring.

in which… I can’t get Billy Joel out of my head

Which, in certain situations, is not such a bad thing…

Unless the song in question is “Uptown Girl”… and you yourself are a girl… because walking through Walmart singing “I”m looking for my Uptown Girl!”, draws some curious glances…

I thought it was a good time for some factuals. I love factuals.

Factual #1- I have never watched The Titanic. I know. Terrible.

Factual #2- I can draw some pretty legitimate creepy-like, stick trees.

Factual #3- I hate alien movies.

Factual #4- I did it… I succumbed to the call of Pintrest. *hangs head*

Factual #5- In the profile picture I have posted on my sidebar, I am not wearing a single bit of makeup.

Factual #6- In a few short weeks, I will [for the first time in my life] have a class inside an actual classroom.

Factual #7- My lucky number is 62.

I decided on factuals about myself this time… Next time I’ll do something different… I quite enjoy factuals…


Hello, My name is Danielle, and I am a nerd…

The Adventures of Scruffy-Face and Razor Man, Vol. 1

Is it odd that I have 3 New Year’s resolutions already?

Background: I never have New Year’s resolutions. And on the rare occasion that I do, I never make it past January, keeping them. It infuriates me to no end.

But this year, ohh this year, things will be different. I swear it.

Quite possibly, the reason I never make it a full year is because of the insane impossibility of the resolutions I give myself. Such as last year. After taking a nutrition/health foods class, I vowed to go an entire year [and hopefully the rest of my life *thumbs up!*] without using a microwave.

You heard me.

Obviously, I made it to January 8th, and then gave up on that particular resolution.


But this year I have some very “do-able” resolutions. At least… they seem that way at this point… Mr. Microwave resolution seemed “do-able” at the time…

And we all know how that turned out.


Some random strangers at the dollar store made my day today. After placing my items on the counter, the scruffy, twenty-something cashier barely glanced at me before asking “You guys find everything alright?” Catching his use of the words “You guys”, I looked behind me and discovered another scruffy, bed-headed twenty-something with a packet of neon pink razors in his hand.

Observation 1) Razor Man is my age

Observation 2) Razor Man is buying razors for his sister/girlfriend/wife [With the laters being more likely]

Observation 3) Razor Man obviously has character and/or a good sense of humor to wield a packet of Pepto pink razors defiantly, as he is so doing

Observation 4) Scruffy-face Cashier thinks Razor Man and I are together

Observing these things, I laugh and tell Scruffy-face, “Oh, it’s just me” attempting to inform him of my lack of relationship with Razor Man without causing him embarrassment. “Oh, my bad y’all,” Scruffy says, and Razor Man chuckles behind me.

Observation 5) Razor Man, as assumed before, has a good sense of humor

So after paying my dues to Scruffy-face, pocketing my receipt, and gathering my plastic sacks, I, on a whim, flash a smile and wave to Razor Man with a chipper “Bye honey!” then proceed to walk out the door, the uproarious laughter of Scruffy and Razor Man and all the other customers pretending not to eavesdrop following me until I’m outside.

It doesn’t sound quite so funny now, but it still makes me chuckle, just thinking about it.

My days are made by random, scruffy-faced, bed-headed, dollar store shoppers.

That could be a song.

Speaking of songs…

300 Violin Orchestra just started playing on my iTunes shuffle… Now I feel the need to take a heroic stance.


I do one weird thing. I love to look at the websites that have lists of the kooky holidays nobody knows about. And It’s the first of November, so I thought hey, I’ll look at November’s kooky holidays, right? So I did. And this is what I found.

November is International Drum Month, Peanut Butter Lovers Month, and National Sleep Comfort Month.


Today, November 3rd, 2011…

Is Housewife Day. discribes it like this-

“Housewife Day recognizes the importance of stay at home wives and
moms. Also referred to as “Retro” Housewife Day. These wonderful, caring
creatures, build and enrich strong family environments. They help to instill
family values and good character.”

“Housewife is an old term. It hails back to the days when one income could
support the family in a manner of comfort. It was also a time when women did not
have equal rights. While these days are long gone, women views of working or
staying at home, fall on both sides of the fence. The decision to be a
“housewife”, or stay at home mom, is still preferred by many. Unfortunately,
income needs often necessitate going to work.”

“Today, we celebrate and thank all of the ladies who choose to stay home and
tend to the house and family!”


It gets even better.

On this very day, November 3rd, 2011… aside from being Housewife Day… It is also

Sandwich Day.


I am not kidding you.

You would think this to be the time I’d take a moment and a few lines of screen to delve into sexism and Women’s earned place in society and the wrongness of “kitchen jokes”…

But if I’m being honest… When I read that, I laughed so hard I almost peed a little.


I zombified myself

Happy Halloween

Regrets of Photographs

It’s actually a song, my title… but I thought it was relative to this specific entry…

Because a picture like this doesn’t even need any other caption.

And after posting one picture, I went on a photo craze and decided to post my favorite nerd picture. Thought technically, it’s not a “photograph” per say.

Awe. That’s so cute.

And then I decided one nerd-love picture wasn’t enough, and you should see both my favorite ones. Hold on to your safety goggles everybody.


And still on a comic-y craze, here’s my favorite comic strip;
