Bonnets Bonnets Bonnets Piss

How much time can a person think about bonnets without going insane? No really, I legitimately want to know the answer to this. I think my time might be up. As I type this, I am watching a man piss outside the studio. It happens more than you might think. It’s because we are the only space in the back of the plaza. People think it’s private back here. Guess what, guys, it’s not… I can see you. I’m watching … Read More

a copy cat aka: a day at the colour factory

“Imitation is a form of flattery,” that’s what my mom has told me my entire life. I don’t think she believes it, entirely, I think it’s just one of those things you’re supposed to teach your kids, and so she tried, and continues to try. She’s a good Mom. But anyways, I did it, I copied Sarah. Kind of. My hair is pink, so I didn’t so much steal her colour idea, since she went lilac and I did not, … Read More

It’s happening, that thing that happens with friends, where one does something and then others starts considering it. I don’t think it’s copying exactly… no, it’s totally copying. On Monday, a few of us are going to see my brother and sister(in-law) to get our hairs attended to. First off, I booked 3 trims, then one friend says, “maybe I want colour…? I want to be so white blonde I’m grey”. Alright. But then she says, “Nope, I want lilac. … Read More

the things i do while avoiding other things

posted in: Lissy, polluted pixie, printables | 0

At the moment, I’m avoiding sewing up the last two leather mason jar cozies, that are staring at me from over there. In an effort to keep my eyes averted from all hand sewing, I find myself killing time on Photoshop, like I do sometimes. And since I have nothing in particular I should be working on on PS, I find myself visualizing the things that have gone through my head since I’ve gotten to work. And you now not … Read More

calling up the chute

Today is the 26 of February, I have approximately 50 days to convince Meems that I’m allowed in her birth room. This is an on going battle that started when our friend, Kirstie, had enough people to fill a football team at her birth and Meems got spooked:   Meems: “When I go into labour, I’m going to quietly slip away. None of you b!tches will know. I’ll drive myself. F*ck you f*ckers.” (I believe I’m paraphrasing only slightly. These … Read More

Often, I see these blog posts on the blogs I follow, you’ve seen the kind too: “What I Wore!” “Today’s Style!” “My Closet is My BFF!” “I Look Really Pretty Today!” and I think to myself, “That looks easy enough, I’m pretty and my closet is my longest, if not my best, friend, I could totally do that for a blog post!” Then I remember that: more days than not, I go straight to work from the gym… without showering … Read More

Things We’ve Done Since We Last Spoke: An Update

posted in: Lissy, polluted pixie, update | 0

We’re bad at this. Blogging. We’re aware of this. We are bad at many things that require motivation. I could list them all, but I’m here for a good time, not a long time. Just kidding, it’s the opposite of that, really.   These are some of the things we’ve been doing while not blogging:         And then our bestie Kirstie put us through 66 hours of hell while she squeezed this nugget out. 66 hours. It … Read More

knitting a baby cowichan sweater: a love/hate affair

It started out as an exciting idea, these things usually do. Kirstie loves Cowichan sweaters and I’d never knit a sweater before, what did I know? A baby sweater seemed like a perfect first sweater to knit. I found an adorable pattern, bought my yarn and then I let it all sit, for awhile, as I do. These things can’t be rushed, and by “these things” I mean anything. Well, after it had sat for… well, about I month, I … Read More
