Blogger MIA?

No, lovelies.  I haven't fallen off the face of the earth---just the blogosphere.  I'm up to my neck in work, school, NaNoWriMo, and the now occasional social life.  

How am I doing at NaNo?  Well, today is the half way mark.  Technically, if I followed the words-per-day goals, I should be at 25,000.  I'm only at 17,964.  Eeep!  But I have a day off tomorrow, Friday, and possibly Saturday.  So I wish me swift fingers on the keyboard so that I can get caught up with my novel and get back to writing posts for you lovely readers.

"The story I am writing exists, written in absolutely perfect fashion, some place, in the air.  All I must do is find it, and copy it." ~Jules Renard, "Diary," February 1895

I understand the feeling entirely - I've put my blogging on hiatus while I write.


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
