Sleepless and Violated

  How does one ask their cat to move out? I’ve tried reasoning with him about screaming like a banshee all night but he doesn’t listen. He wants the bathroom tap left open so he can have fresh water at his disposal all night. He wants our bedroom doors open all night so he can…

Surprise!

  So here’s the thing… I have all these little projects in the works right now, that I am super excited about, including a very special and  super secret surprise one that I CAN’T WAIT to show you guys. For real, It’s making me a little nuts, keeping my mouth shut. It’s a bit of…

Bird is the word (Barcelona – Part four)

The first day on our trip we were walking up Avinguda de les Drassanes and I noticed a tiny little green bird flitting about the sidewalk. I tried to get his picture but he kept darting out of sight. He flew up into a tree and continued taunting me from behind the branches which led…

NO MOLESTAR (Barcelona – Part three / Google go back to school)

These were free for the taking at the tourist information center downtown Barcelona. On the back of each one it says ‘NO a la explotacion sexual’ According to google translator this means: ‘Ardent Russian to please your imaginations; Eastern submissive blue kiss; credit cards, African virgin, 200 Euros are accepted’ ‘he is not funny to…
