Bramble Patch: January 2013

A list of my favorite internet distractions from the month of January. 

Two words: Confetti Bowl. I am making this. I am soooooo making this.

I had planned to write a post on my top ten favorite camera phone tips/tricks/apps. But then I found THIS POST and I’m all, Ughh, this is waaaaay better than what I could have produced!

Does your house get dry in winter? Mine sure does. This is a simple (and delicious) way to perk things up.

A Valentine care package? And it’s super cute? Why, thank you.

Speaking of Valentines…let them eat cake. Awesome cake. Awesome mailable cake.  

Fifty percent of the time I check in on Twitter, it’s to see if Anti Joke Cat has posted anything new.

My other baby, I Believe in Strangers, is chugging along. Anyone who has ever struggled with job hunting will appreciate this one.

Reading: Fraud by David Rakoff.

Watching: Downton Abbey. But isn’t everyone?

Munching: Homemade chicken soup. I would like to declare that everyone around me is sick but me. BUT ME. This is the healing power of an old fashioned chicken boil!

Listening: Radical Face, Always Gold.

Wearing: This parka. It took me 14 years of living in cold weather to break me down into buying a fugly old snow parka…but now Parka and I are besties. She is always warm, wind proof, waterproof, has 7 enormous pockets so I don’t even need a purse half the time, AND she comes with built-in fingerless gloves (great for driving or phone doodling). Holy crap I love this coat.

Most popular post this month: Sexy Men Who Knit.

Moment in cat history: Lolabelle has taken to keeping warm under the covers of the bed. I am petrified I will accidentally sit on her.

    the confetti bowl is cute but I’m not sure I need one.However, after spending a half hour in the glorious mecca that is Pier 1, I’ve decided I need to try that confetti mirror.

    Also, I just read some of anti-joke cat’s “jokes” to my roommate and she thinks I’m weird.

    Your roommate does not understand cat humor. Don’t hold it against her. At least not yet.

    Sorry Aunt Peaches, that is not a parka. That is a puffy coat. I love the color! Before she passed,my mammy made me a new coat using vintage 501 jeans, so I do know my outer wear.
