This truly chaps my hide

by meanlouise March 15, 2012 true life 2012

It suddenly got very warm out, so it’s been an inferno on every Metro train I’ve taken this week. A few days ago. I pinned my hair up, as I’m wont to do when it’s very warm. I was reading a book so I put my glasses on. A family of Midwestern tourists goggled at […]

by meanlouise March 3, 2011 seriously?

Husband just sent me this & I can’t decide which part is more awesome, the hair or the Exorcist-inspired breathing technique: edited to add: Just hours after we watched this and I posted it, we went to yoga. I’ll be damned if the teacher didn’t say, “you can use lion breathing here…” which I’d never […]

"We may or may not be superbeings…yet"

by meanlouise January 20, 2008 seriously?

I seem to have gone from bacon week to photography to cult week, although I’m not sure how or why. These things just happen, I guess. Husband has become obsessed with the Tom Cruise video and has found the entire Scientology awards ceremony on google video. It’s divided into two 20 minute videos. Part 1 […]
