Happy Tuesday evening, darlings.  Did you get what you wanted this weekend?  I got the gift of family, friends and a Radiohead concert next March from Honey.  DREAM GIFT, and I didn’t even know I wanted it that bad.  Downside of Christmas: Honey unwittingly said “creampie” when a new-to-the-family young lady asked “ooohh, what kind [...]

DEAR TKB | “What do you do when someone you love loses control?” I was extremely hesitant to publish this post. But my hesitation just confirmed that I had to do it.

Let’s start light, on this lovely Wednesday evening.  With a fact… Whenever Honey says “You know what’s funny?” I go “YA FACE.”  It’s a knee-jerk reaction but I think I’m gonna stop doing that. You know why?  Because when I’m sick like right now he goes and he does this:

Hey guys it’s me. Not Ryan Gosling; Alison.  Sometimes I write posts that are so outlandishly outlandish, that the only thing I feel can pull it together, give it at least the facade of relevance and legitimacy… is Ryan’s punim.  I think it’s doing a great job of it.  A really great, sexy job.

Happy late Tuesday, party people. Preface: Today’s Reader Question/Real Wedding were put together strategically as per usual, but the way I’m presenting the question requires it to be in three parts, and the format is therefore a little nuanced.  Also, I think I’m using ‘nuanced’ wrong.  I’ve decided to include the reader’s follow-up response to [...]

MIND BLOWING WEDDING WITH SWORDS? | Also, a Pnina Tornai I Can Get Behind! | by Jodi Miller Photography | In other news, can you tell which movie I just watched?

This wedding is off the chain.  It is fully engaged in kicking butt and taking names, and it’s making no apologies for its actions.  It is EPICNESS, brethren.  Come, join me as I flop around in its bouncy castle of unmitigated brilliance.  Mind the swords. I’m sorry, I was reading the dictionary and the metaphor-in-ary? [...]
