Just So You Know

It is still hot here.
Yes, I'm talking to you rest of the country*.
100 degrees.

I hate summer.

*and my parents who happen to be on a Cruise in fucking Alaska.
Where is my Alaskan Cruise?

Pie Makes Everything Better

I made a Derby Pie yesterday minus the pecans.
Fang really wanted some and The Boy said I should give her some.
I said no "pie is not good for crazy big head dogs" and then my teen said;
Pie is good for everyone, pie makes everything better.

No truer words have been spoken.
Like I said he is a budding philosopher.

Mr. Kitty says;
More Pie

I've discussed my love of the 40's Noir look many times.
Of all the eras I sell I would be happy if all I had was 40's Noir vintage clothing and, of course, vintage shirtwaist dresses.
What makes me sad is that my luck in finding those dresses is not so hot.
It may be that my area was pretty poor and conservative during that time and that style was just too "fast" to be acceptable.
I need to get an estate of a gal who lived "loose" during that time, a gal who was a mobster's moll and went to swanky clubs then retired to Arkansas with all her "stuff".
Anyway, I do have this great dress listed now:
Love the sheer smocked bodice and the ruched cummerbund.....and I just like black.
Also this pretty sheer Peggy Bets blouse to be worn under a nice nipped waist suit.

Cat Macros Make Me Happy

I don't know if any of you have ever read Smart Bitches, but they are a hoot, mostly making fun of bad romance novels (they like good ones) and cheesy covers. Recently they had a contest using cat macros and acceptance letters for LOLuz novels.
Cat macros as cheesy romance novel covers.
OMG, I just spent 15 min or so laughing so hard I was crying.
