“I had three chairs in my house; one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society.” –Thoreau

The original offender:

These gray chairs are actually really nice as far as plain stackable chairs go. They’re not the lap of luxury or comfort but they’re much better than the standard stacking fare goes. My father bought them en masse at a Sam’s Club (I think) for the bookstore before the big Twilight […]

“I can’t love my neighbors like I love myself. That’s considered sexual harassment!”

We had a fantastic, but full, weekend and I just wasn’t ready to face another Monday. So it’s a good thing the governor has declared a state of emergency in South Carolina because of the snow. Even though we rarely see snow here in SC some think they’re ok to drive on it. (Driving on […]

I’ll just regress, because I feel I’ve made myself perfectly redundant.

Me: I saw your doppelganger in the grocery store near my work… only he was very effeminate. Eric*: Was he working in the fruit department… or, better yet, the meat department? *Eric is my sister’s boyfriend. My sister noted that I don’t have a nickname for her on this blog. Ben suggested that I give […]

Tour Of Places Where Bad Decisions Are Made

Me: I am going to get a tattoo on my birthday! My Dad: Where’s your birthday?

1. The Painted Pony: A Tattoo Parlor in Anderson, South Carolina. Ben has always loved Norse mythology (which when you’re dating me means you get large tomes about Norse mythology and runes as gifts.) He decided he wanted to […]

“If you get rid of the butterfly tattoo how’s everyone gonna know you’re a stripper from Reno with daddy issues?”

My thrilling Friday night of PURE 100% EXCITEMENT consisted of ironing and grocery shopping. I wanted to get all the pesky chores out of the way so I could thoroughly enjoy my rare weekend off. Things I’m looking forward to: *Costuming! The last weekend in January we are attending a Super Heroes vs Super Villains […]

“I need something to give me hope: Like an automatic weapon or an eight ball of coke “

Ben’s brother sent this song to Ben touting its obnoxiousness. He spent his Christmas break harassing his wife for days with nonsensical lyrics set to this song: “I can cover food with no cellophane, no …” Thus, when we spent New Years at their house we had to continue harassing his (very lovely) wife […]

“It was an adrenaline rush. You can google it.”

Later this afternoon we’re driving to Asheville to meet my sisters and nieces to go see Twilight. I don’t think anyone could have lower expectations than me of what this film is going to be like. I’m thinking worse than made for tv Sci Fi movies. I figure if I think it’s going to be […]

Shimmy Shimmy Shimmy to the Breaking Dawn, Yeah!

I just bought tickets to see Twilight! Break it down for me RPattzzzzz: I couldn’t wrangle anyone to go with me to a midnight showing of it so instead I’m seeing it this Saturday in Asheville with both my sisters and my two nieces. Oh, and Ben. Poor poor Ben – pity him. He will […]

Finding Nemo

This weekend didn’t involve any latex faux superheroes or half nekkid belly dancers shimmying around with swords on their head. Yet, I still had so much fun (which is surprising since I had to work on both Saturday and Monday so my weekend was non-existent.) On Saturday night, Mister Benjamin took me to my favorite […]

Coffee Break Jenn and The Revenge Of The Lasso Of Truth

I’ve posted the pictures from the Superhero 5k in Asheville yesterday on Ben’s photo gallery: here at http://www.seaoffire.net/gallery/v/superhero5k/. If there’s a pic of you that you don’t like, just let me know. I kind of skim the ones without me in it as I take the Dennis Reynolds approach to photographs: If I’m not in […]
