Top: Threadless — Pants: Goodwill — Blazer: Swap (Stoosh) — Shoes: Thrifted (Born) — Necklace: Gift — Kiwi brooch: Gift from Tia!

Oh man, you guys. I don’t know what it is, but I am suffering from total and complete blogger’s block today.

It’s like my brain is just…not…functioning.

Uhhhh. Has anybody been watching good TV lately? Mike and I have been working on Eureka, Arrested Development, and Luther, which probably tells you all you need to know about how much time we spend watching TV. Whatever, TV is great.

Oh, we’ve also been slowly watching Azumanga Daioh whenever we’re in the mood, which is maybe why I’m feeling like such a Bonkler today?

(If you’re at least a little familiar with anime, you probably know Azumanga Daioh, but if not, this should give you the right idea.)

Oh! And this, my new kiwi pin, was an awesome gift from Tia. She gave one to each of her bridespeople, and I think we were all happy with our respective animals. There was a whale, an owl, a sparrow-type generic birdie, and my kiwi. I wore mine at the wedding, and one of Braden’s family members tried to argue with me that kiwis are extinct. I’m not going to laugh, though; recently I discovered that sometime between my childhood and now, someone decided that pandas are, in fact, true bears, which threw me for a bit of a loop. When it’s repeated as fact that pandas are non-bear bears for much of your childhood, you can develop a bit of a mental block to new information regarding that “fact,” so who am I to look askance at someone who is laboring under misinformation about kiwis?

(Hmm. Writer’s block to Azumanga Daioh to panda bears. I really am a true Bonkler.)

  1. I am currently watching Eureka, and Luther is on my queue. I will watch a few episodes every night, and get a lot of knitting done. When I’m marathoning, I can get a sweater and a season done in a week!

  2. So we watched two of the latest episodes of Eureka last night and aaargh. I can’t wait until you catch up because aaaaargh.

    I’m so glad you like your kiwi. I think it went sooo pretty with your dress. :3

    Also, you’re covering up this shirt so much but this shirt is so brilliant.

      I only covered it up this one time, I think? I’ll have to go back through and see when else I wore it, I may have to squeeze in another outing before this 30 for 30 is complete.

    Will you and Tia please write under one name?

    Before I realized you two were different people, I thought there was something going on like in That Obscure Object of Desire.

    It wouldn’t just be for me. It’d be for all of your new readers/fans of Bunuel.

  4. I LOVE those pants! So bright and happy! Also, I just saw that you wore the little flower earrings! They look great on you.

    Luther is fantastic, isn’t? *Sigh, for how great BBC is.* Also, those pants are rocking, even thought they are orange. Somehow, you and Gracey can rock orange even though I hate it.

    Wisely spoken. I spent most of my life believing kiwis had loooong legs (like flamingos) because my dad had a stuffed kiwi toy with legs two feet long. Real kiwis still look ‘wrong’ to me.
