+ Between

+ Not so cool
- Me. Not writing. The shame.
- This weather. It's seriously a million degrees below zero with a major wind factor.
- Having to pick through moldy hay while freezing in said weather.
- Walmart's people-goers. I don't care how punk or emo or whatever-the-heck you are - leggings are not pants.

  1. I absolutely loved this. I was laughing at the "picking through moldy hay while freezing in said weather."..because I know exactly what you mean! Been there done that. Still doing that actually. Haha. :))

  2. *laughing so hard she can barely breathe* The Nuns..

  3. L.O.L. This was fantastic.

  4. About "Having to pick through moldy hay while freezing in said weather."

    I feel your pain. I truly do.

  6. i'd love one day to just live on a farm for awhile. growing up in the suburbs of NYC... it just doesn't exist. there is no space between towns, and the only thing that designates a change is the sign on the side of the road that says you're crossing lines. hope the weather gets better for you! (personally, I'm a huge fan of the cold)

  7. Oh, hope you get your precious T3 soon! I love mine! ;)
    And I know what you mean. Leggings being worn as pants is very disturbing...
