Kiera Effing KNIGHTLEY?!?!

Are you kidding me right now? Pinch-nose Pouty-lips gets a freaking Oscar nod?! Gag me with a Smurf. I mean, there’s no way she’ll win, but gross. (And no, I haven’t seen her performance in that movie, and no, that IN NO WAY disqualifies me from judging it and her, thankyouverymuch.)

Yet more evidence that I have married The Right Man

Mr. Squab, on seeing that I’ve put my newly long hair back into pigtails, of which he is particularly fond:

“Hey, baby, wanna Punky my Brewster?”

Best. Come On. EVER.

Well, it’s official

We’ve joined the bourgeoisie; we’re home-owners. (Or, as my sister said on the phone: “you’re homos!”) Although the owners took about 6 hours longer than they were supposed to to actually get all of their stuff out, overall the closing was blissfully uneventful.

Blogging for Choice

Today is the 33rd anniversary of Roe v.
