So. . .I just saw the Facebook video of the animal testing being done at Texas A&M laboratories (came out in December, so maybe you've already seen it). I hate this feeling. The overwhelming sadness and crippling helpless feeling. The problem is so big, what can I do about it? Something. Anything. I'm not going… Continue reading Animal testing.
As some of you may know, I have three wonderfully sweet kitty babies. Now "wonderfully sweet" really only applies to me, and sometimes my husband, as they are either rude or fearful of most others. Unfortunately, today we had to go to the vet. I will spare you the gruesome details, but cats have anal… Continue reading Thurston, aka “Nasty Cat”
Finding makeup that really works for me has been a serious struggle. And I'm sure this struggle is not solely mine.

Have a wonderful weekend. Xoxoxo JYAJ
Are you as curious as I would be at that title? Oh boy! Don't worry, those things don't actually go together. At least. . .they shouldn't. Anyways, these are all topics of books written by one of my favorite authors, Mary Roach. Her style of writing mixes scientific study and humor (two things that you don't often think… Continue reading Corpses and spirits and sex. . .oh my.
As I listened to my podcast this morning (Stuff You Should Know), I was kind of struck by. . .I don't know. . .feelings? Now normally my morning commute is filled with feelings, but they're more of the "why are you in the fast lane going 60 mph" variety. These were the warm, fuzzy types. The topic was… Continue reading Spread the Love!
For me, I didn't really know how my blog would evolve. There was no clear "this is what I want to write about", and I knew it would be a process - an evolution. So I thought I would go back through the pieces that I put together when I first started, to see if… Continue reading What did we USED to do??
