I am a goddam fashionista.

You know those bloggers who write about jackets and foot clothes and hair things?  The fashiony people?  I never entirely got their deal until I discovered the joy of collecting purses.  I mean, technically, they’re just coin purses and I didn’t really “collect” them so much as I just bought the set because they were cheaper that way, but still?  BEST PURSES EVER.  Because they have cat faces on them and when I hold them up to my face when I ask Victor to make me a milkshake I suddenly have a face than no one can say no to.  Look:

"Call me 'Mittens'."

“Call me ‘Mittens’.”

But then Victor did say no because he doesn’t love kittens and he’s maybe not even human or something.  But I’ve been walking around the house taking pictures of the cats wearing cat masks and it is the best thing ever.  Even Dorothy Barker looks adorable:

"Woof."

“Woof.”

And Hunter S. Thomcat:

It's like my cat is dressed up as my cat.

It’s like my cat is dressed up as my cat.

Ferris Mewler actually grabbed one and tried to groom it but I took it away from him because it looked like he’d ripped off another cat’s head and was showing off his gross trophy.  Then I took this video of Ferris giving me a go-to-hell look and if you look closely enough at it you can lip-read him saying, “Bitch?  Fuck you.”  It’s impressive and terrifying.

And then Victor yelled at me for freaking the cats out and for buying coin purses when I don’t even have any coins to put in them.  And I thought that maybe he had a point, but then I realized that, no, he was way wrong:

Honestly, it's like it was made for him. He disagrees. Whatever.

Honestly, it’s like it was made for him. He disagrees. Whatever.

PS. You can buy them here.

  10. Um, Jenny…I don’t think Ferris Mewler told you to, “Fuck off.” I’m pretty sure he just called you an asshole. I know that asshole goes through glass, so I’m pretty sure that means it goes through screens too. I mean, you know him better than I do. I just read something different on his lips than you did.

    Also, I once visited an aunt in a mental health facility where a lady wandered the visiting room asking everyone if they had seen her coin purse. Repeatedly. I wonder if she may have been you…and you traveled back in time to change your future so I could see you and warn you of what will happen if you don’t curb your coin purse obsession. You’re welcome! Have a nice day!

And another copy of Furiously Happy was just after the book Fake Swears. I don’t know; it amused me anyway.)

    Hello Everyone,
    I have come to share my testimony.
    The best choices in life are mostly when you follow your heart , i am sure at least about 70% of people will agree with me on that but i still want to reach out to those who are in dire need of the half word.
    I have been married to a scammer for a little over 2 years and i did not realize it until i followed my heart. Truly i still love him, but deep down i just knew something was wrong. To cut everything short, i contacted a few people yeah of course through some of these ads all over the internet. And eventually i found out about the truth but it was only Jay (dotexedot82plus9@gmail dot com) that came through for me. Recovered some of my money but it wasn’t really about that.
