Humpday Listday: Roommates

This is the first post in a new series I'll be doing (hopefully) every Wednesday. I'm going to share a list of some sort every Humpday! They will most likely be random and silly. You've been warned.
Here goes!

All the roommates I've had, and one silly fact about them, in chronological order:
(If any of you are reading, I apologize.)

  • Adrianne, who crawled into bed with me sometimes to watch QVC or Finding Nemo.
  • Ebony, who wrestled with her boyfriend on the kitchen floor.
  • Phylicia, who watched Three's Company reruns every single night on Nick at Night.
  • Heidi, who I never recall cooking anything but turkey spaghetti with wheat noodles.
  • Rebekah, who was once the Vidalia Onion Queen.
  • Callie (the first time), who had a plant named 'Phyllis the Amaryllis.
  • Lydia, who cuddled with me when it got cold and the heat was broken.
  • Callie (the second time), who taught me the best chocolate chip cookie recipe in the universe.
  • Christie, who thought southern cooking was simultaneously the strangest and most delicious thing ever.
  • Jessica, who was terrified of the squirrel that got in our house.
  • Kristen, who caught the squirrel that got in our house. And told us about it for weeks.
Aww... now I'm feeling all nostalgic.


The Teeth of Hounds

I wonder what a real hound's tooth looks like.... Until I find out, I'll settle for some pretty pretty houndstooth.

Today I love houndstooth!

Hex Code Cotton

On this sunny Monday afternoon, I bring you the greatest thing I think I've ever seen.
Today I love....
Hex code on cotton!

When I saw this (via Craft Mag) I literally shouted (to an empty apartment, no less) "Shut the f*** up!" It's that awesome.

It's printed via, by staceyjoy, whose Etsy shop is HERE. The fabric isn't available for sale just yet, but as per staceyjoy's flickr stream, should be available in a few weeks via her spoonflower shop page, here.

Guilty Pleasure: Paramore

We all have guilty pleasures, right? Here's one of mine:

Today I Love.... Paramore.

Okay, I know. This does not fit in with my usual indie/singer-songwriter type music. I realize that. But sometimes, a girl just has to let her hair down and rock out.

Seriously, look at Hayley Williams. She's so adorable with her orange hair. How could you not love her?

And yeah, I first heard them on the Twilight soundtrack. Doesn't mean they aren't good. Bon Iver was on the New Moon soundtrack. So there.

Happy Weekend!!

Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

When I was 12, my older cousin had a copy of the Smashing Pumpkins' Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness on CD. Because of it, I was truly convinced that he was the absolute coolest person on earth . I guess that's when I decided that a person's "cool factor" can be measured by how many Smashing Pumpkins songs they know.

So, because I have tonnnnnnns of cool points,

Today, I love.....
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.

And here's a live one, because I remember seeing this live back in '96 when I was a kid. It was the first time I watched the MTV Video Music Awards. I watched MTV like a crazy person from age 12-18. After "Next" and "Room Raiders" started, I just gave up.

So, how many cool points do you have?

(PS... yeah, I skipped Sunday. Oh well. I'm only human.)

Today I love...

Woke up violently sick this morning and I'm still feeling a little out of it, so this is all you get today. I know... I'm lame. I'm working on it.

Pee Pants

Today I love....
Pee Pants Script!

This font has been around for a while now, and everybody's using it, but I just can't help it. I really love it. And what's even better than an awesome font? An awesome font that's FREEEEEE!!!! It takes some getting used to since you have to use some special characters to get it to work right, but it's worth it.

Go forth and enjoy the free download!
