I am resolved to stop with beginning blog posts with “It’s been a busy couple of weeks…” Considering we have three kids, multiple house projects, two full time jobs, and holidays and visitors moving through the calendar and house that is obviously a “no shit, it’ll be like that till ya die” statement. So like, here is a recap of some of the recent goings-on.Continue reading “A Day in the Lonesome October”

Fishing and watching River Monsters re-runs has completely ruined me on swimsuit shopping. Look, I had a bit of a shark phobia to begin with, but now getting eaten by a catfish is a real fear too? (FYI, it’s always catfish. Or Tiger Fish.) Ugh. It’s amazing I love the water as much as I do.
Wonder how that ties into swimsuit shopping? Let me just show you.
It all starts with a sparkly gold number… that I wouldn’t have ever worn anyway, for stylistic reasons, but also because it looks AWFULLY similar to this…
Yeah. So gold spinners are used more in saltwater fishing because gold reflects better than silver in murky water. So… yeah. No gold bikinis for me, thanks!
Okay. So how about a cute little striped bikini? That’s gotta be safe, right?
Or are high contrast colors something to avoid? Damn. Okay, the swimsuit search continues…
Now you’re talking! Low contrast to skin coloration so no worries there, and super cute. Something seems a bit familiar though, what could it be…
Son of a bitch! FINE!
OKAY! Now we’re talking! It’s my favorite color, it’s got some interesting detailing… it’s… it’s…
it’s a goddamn fishing lure.
I give up.
