Good News, Bad News, And Weird News

My life is SO not normal.

Weird news:

Multiple people are sending me photos of their basters.


I can't even tell you how much this amuses me.  In fact, it makes my day because hahahahahaha!

I think YOU should take a photo of your baster and send it to me too.  It can be a phone pic or whatever you want.  Baster photos make me laugh.  Please keep your baster shots rated PG-ish though in case I decide to share them.  (I really see no reason why I would need x-rated baster photos, do you?)  If you want to be creative with your baster – all the better.

Ha ha!

More sort-of weird news:

This is a blurry phone photo of Fawn:


It's not Fawn's fault she's blurry, it's mine.

By the way, HI FAWN!!

Anyway, Fawn works at my favorite tea shop.  I drink a lot of loose leaf tea (mainly iced).  I buy it in large quantities so I only need to buy it every few months.  Yesterday, as soon as I walked in the door Fawn said, "Jasmine Oolong" which is my favorite tea.

I was very impressed.  Fawn remembered and I haven't been in the store for months.

Then Fawn nonchalantly mentioned she laughed so hard she spit her coffee out the day prior while reading my Baster Post.  I was embarrassed.  I'm happy she thought it was funny.  

But …

Hello reader – meet your blogger who in her real-life-hasn't-showered-disgustingness!

This is the reason why I was such a slob:

I had a worker man (with a big tool) show up at my house early yesterday morning.  He didn't leave until afternoon.  I didn't want to shower with him in the house.  (Also?  I didn't want to shower with HIM.  I have poor grammar today!)  When he finally left I thought, "I'll just run and get more tea because I'm addicted and I can't live a day without it.  I'll keep my fingers crossed I don't see anyone I know because I'm SLOBBED OUT."

And then, I walked into the tea shop and smiley, friendly, Fawn recognized me on sight.

I think it's okay though.  I think Fawn is understanding of my slobbery-ness.  

Good News:  Fawn even gave me a delicious iced tea "on the house."  It was such a nice thing for her to do!

I like Fawn.  If any of you happen to be at the Mission Viejo Shops, you should stop into anonymous tea store and say hi to Fawn.  Tell her hi from me!  (I'm not posting the name of the store in case it would get Fawn in trouble … but there's only one tea store at that mall.)

Bad News:

A teen son doesn't find it amusing when he sees his mom posted about Worker Man's Big Tool on Facebook.  (Which was a total accident by the way – it was a message intended for some Twitter friends but I just started using Hootsuite and I don't know what I'm doing.  I accidentally posted it to Facebook.)

It must be humiliating to have me for a mom.  

More Bad News:  I'm not sure my site re-design is going to be done as soon as I hoped.  Several of you have mentioned you want to purchase prints as holiday gifts now, so … here's the scoop:

Good News:  My older prints will continue to be up (click here) until mid to late December.  You can order any of them, just the way you always have.  I will give you a few days notice when my "old" site is about to go down.  (I don't have the exact date yet.)

Good News:  I'm going to give you a sneak-peek at my new (still being built) photo site.  You can find many of my newer photos in galleries by clicking here.  And yes, you can now order prints from the new site.  

I'm able to offer many more products/sizes on the new site.  I also now have, what I consider to be, the top photo lab in the country printing for me.  Prices on some items are lower (and on some items higher) than on my "old" site.  The prices are dependent on what I'm charged.

Because I'm still getting the kinks out, and because the site isn't finished – I will be checking and approving every order myself as orders are placed.  I want everything to run smoothly even if there's still a lot of work to do behind the scenes.  (I appreciate you understanding I'm moving forward before everything is "perfect" and completed at the request of readers.)  If you have any questions, or a problem placing an order, please let me know so I can help.

I will post more details for you about what's going on with the new site, soon.  If you want a photo you don't see posted, just let me know and I'll do my best to have it available for you within 24 hours. I'm in the process of transitioning over my most popular photos ….

Thank you, as always, for being the best readers in the entire world!

    I’m sure Fawn was just happy to see you and sure she didn’t notice that you hadn’t showered!
    Last year I clicked on something that a friend posted on Facebook. I’m not sure what it was, but clicked out immediately. The next morning I got a message from my college age son about how proud he was to see on his newsfeed that his mom likes the biggest d— on earth! Hahaha!
    Have a great day!

    Oh man, that just made my entire week! Haha. I’m showing everyone at Teavana your blog and it’s a hit. And I think blurry is a good look for me. It makes me look extreme whilst making tea. Cheers!
