So, I’m Redoing My Kitchen

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

No, I haven’t suddenly become rich. But when a pipe bursts under your house and the resulting sewage eats away the foundation, you go into a state of “oh, well, I guess I’ll just be in debt for the rest of my life!” and you fix that gaping hole. So, yeah. The kitchen is underway, […]

We Love Poetry Of The Silly Variety!

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Also, poetry of the non-silly variety! But, lets face it, when you’re small, you just don’t really “get” how great Walt Whitman’s descriptions of the Civil War are, you know? When you’re a kid, what appeals to you, most likely, is the poetry of a man like Shel Silverstein, and, if you’re like me, that […]

Ah, But Where To Wear It?

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

You know how sometimes you’ll be cruising around online, or even in a “gasp” brick and mortar store, and you’ll see some kind of amazing garment and you’ll think “well, I want that. I want that item but I can’t really justify the purchase because, well, where will I wear it?” You think and think, […]

Why Do Kids Get All The Cool Stuff, And Is It Ok To Take It Back?

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

I’m not a kid person. As I’ve said before, I’m a cat person. So it’s a huge bummer to me when wandering in places like children’s Ikea to see that it’s quite clear that kids get all of the awesome stuff that’s out there. For example, hello, Stuva: That thing is adorable. It also comes […]

Sometimes It Takes A Robot To Do A Maid’s Job

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Amalthea fun fact: I am a cat person. For the longest time I was a dog person. I grew up with dogs, my family bred Pembroke Corgis and Standard Poodles. Dogs are fine, but now that I’m in my own house, I find that while I love an animal running to the door to greet […]

I’ve Never Been A Barbie Girl

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

I had a couple when I was younger. I was a fan of Malibu Barbie, because she, like me through the age of 12, had clearly never had a haircut. I also liked her bikini which was covered in sparkles and of which I own a replica that I break out on the rare summer […]

Fine, I’m A Cliche

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

I’m a gothy kind of chick and I really like True Blood. I didn’t start watching it right away, but how long can a girl resist an Alan Ball Creation? Really? Not very long at all. So this morning my bf sends me this video and I thought I’d share it with you. My bf, […]

Just When You Thought It Was Safe

Monday, December 6th, 2010

to declare your tree “decorated,” along comes etsy seller Imoonraini to RUIN YOUR DAY. Ok, I’m just cranky. I hate being broke at the holidays, but such is the life of a freelancer. It’s all feast or famine, and nothing in between and then along comes this shop where not only do I want everything, […]

Amalthea Fun Fact! I’m A Ghost!*

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

Ok, that’s a lie, I’m just REALLY pale. The kind of pale where my boyfriend can’t use me for a stand in on his video shoots because I don’t show up on film. Because of this I’ve become adept at hiding from the sun whilst enjoying summer activities. For example, I’m a gigantic fan of […]

If I Had An Enormous House- The Roadkill Rug

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

I’d do a lot more shopping. When you have an enormous house, you can afford to have large items, like rugs, which are strictly there for amusement. As it stands, my house is about 1400 s.f. and large rug type items must be useful 24/7. This only makes me sad on rare occasion, such as […]
