This Just In: Phoneblogging Is Tough

20131227-090804.jpg

Ahoy from damp, misty western Washington, friends! I’m giving myself next week off the blog on account of technical difficulties (read: photo editing and post writing on a tiny iPhone screen have gotten the better of me), so I’ll see you all in the new year!

Here’s something new, mis amigos: I’m writing this post on my phone!

Turns out a frayed charger cable isn’t so good at keeping a laptop alive, so I’ll be computer-free until I can get back to CA and replace it. You wouldn’t believe how many typos I’m making right now. Thanks, spellcheck!

What, I should actually say something about my outfit? Pssht. This is definitely an example of non-figure-flattery that I really like. Loose and flowy but still warm enough for a California winter. It’s a little unconventional for the office, but I think they’ve gotten used to me by now. If they haven’t, I really don’t know what to tell ’em.

Merry Catmas

Merry Catmas from Flat Tire, to all of you who observe it!

May you get a lot of rest and relaxation…

…eat all your favorite foods…

…and spend time with the people you love (even if, like Flat Tire, there are only two people you can stand in the entire world). Happy holidays to mew and mew and mew.

Happy Christmas Eve Day to all who observe such things! (Not to be confused with Christmas Day Eve. Or that most revered of holidays that occurs every quarter-century, The Christmas Day of No Eve, when the Great Ones arise and demand tribute, otherwise they’ll take away our rum balls and eggnog.)

Show of hands, who’s actually internetting today? I’ve spent most of my holiday break so far reading, including The Indispensable Calvin & Hobbes and Rebecca. You know, the usual.

I’m wearing 100% less plaid and scarabs today than I was a week ago, but that’s okay. You’ll see lots of plaid and scarabs from me in 2014.

Hey, everybody! I’m in Washington even as you read this (unless I’ve had to escape on a plane to the Galapagos in the last twenty minutes), but I’ve still got a little backlog of pictures from before the holiday break. If you close your eyes and wish real real hard, you might get to see some cruddy iPhone pictures from my visit up here, too!

Anyhow, this outfit is one I threw together when my original idea lacked structural integrity, and it’s not too bad, I think! I’m getting better at looking cute on the fly, which is a handy skill to cultivate for someone as perpetually tardy as I am.

I was feeling a little bit wonky over the weekend, so I decided to cheer myself up with a very busy outfit. It pretty much worked!

20131215-IMG_1140

Well, going to the farmers’ market and getting a delicious green chicken tamale didn’t hurt, either.

Bright colors and patterns help remind me not to take myself so seriously and can be cheering on a depressed and anxious day. How about you?

Look who is in town. And writing on the blog. It is me! And I am Tia. [Don’t be fooled by the posting info–Mia created the draft of this post for Tia to edit! Or maybe we’re secretly the same person. -Mia] And also I am still very much unbloggy in general. Curse you, inexplicably time consuming graduate program! As soon as I got to my parent’s house, practically, I got my hair cut and colored for the first time in forever, so you get to see that awesomeness up in this business.

Also, my totally sweet Goldie Blox sweatshirt, which I am grateful to note is literally all I need for being outside right now. California, your weather. It is wonderfuls.
