I hope that doesn't bring a whole new demographic to my blog. But for real, I am doing something wrong at Trader Joes. In that, I don't know what the hell to buy there. Oh sure, I have a few favorites (keep reading) but for the most part, when I walk into a Trader Joes it's… Continue reading I’m Not Doing Trader Joe Correctly
So I went to Etsy and searched for Valentine + Fish + Bowl and it came up with five different shops who sell almost the same item.
I just picked the first one I saw, which happened to be this shop here.
This is the thing: they don’t sell anything but the printable you put INSIDE the bag.
You have to purchase everything else.

This life thing, it's a head-scratcher. We are all just trying to figure it out, aren't we? But at the core of it all, we just want to be understood. Constantly trying to convince others and even ourselves of what we are feeling, thinking, going through, dealing with. Sometimes the words come to us easily,… Continue reading Understood
We miss you, little guy.
I had another post ready to reblog today and then on February 4, our dear, sweet Nibbles passed away in Ella’s arms on the way to the vet sick call hour.
It’s been a sad week here because he was so much more to us than just a hamster.
Ella said something interesting on the day he died; she told us that he immediately felt lighter after he died.
“How is that possible? He still has all of his organs”, she said.
I said it’s because his soul is no longer in there.
His soul. It had so much weight.

I do believe that our hamster Nibbles is directly responsible for this behavior.
That and it’s just good to have another living…

Ah February, the month of love. Or a ploy by Hallmark. Nonetheless, it is nice to have something to look forward to in the middle of winter. Why not overeat chocolate while staring at flowers that you bought for yourself, because let's be real. So I wanted to do this month's post in a… Continue reading Sore o nejikomu, watashi wa teitātottsu o tabete iru – pāto 10 (Screw It, I’m Eating Tater Tots- Part Ten)
This is the post that introduced the Tater Tot series and also cemented my random at best style of writing.

Maybe it is God gently telling me, it is time Kari.
Not that time! Time to stop blogging!
I sat at my computer for a solid ten minutes trying to think of a title for this blog post and that up there is the best that I could think of.
Oh sure, I could have titled this post Miscellaneous or ETC. or Things that Come into My Brain Randomly.
But you expect more from me, don’t you?
I would expect those kinds of titles from a beginning blogger, not from someone entering their seventh year of blogging.
This post is about random crap I am dealing with right now in my life and…

In that, I am on there every single night before I fall asleep taking quizzes. Or when I wake up to pee. Not if but when. I hate that I love Buzzfeed. I do. I mean, I don't. I am not above telling you that one middle of the night peeing session led to me… Continue reading I Have a Buzzfeed Problem
