My weekend involved a party dress and a pig with no pants. And you?


Yeah, so, we’re losers.

Mighty, mighty good man David and I went to my office “holiday” party on Saturday night, and once again, we didn’t win any prizes in the raffle. WHY DOES GOD HATE ME? Is it because I don’t believe in him?

My office buddy Jennifer won a big flat-screen TV. She’s good people. She deserves to have a fancy flat-screen TV. I, on the other hand, probably would have traded away my prize for more drink tickets or some magic beans. I can’t be trusted. At least there was a photo booth at the party. Hilarity ensued.


Also, I got to wear a very cute dress I bought at ModCloth, which is my current obsession. See?


My favorite things in this photo are the dress and all the Spawn’s toys in the background. Obviously, we are not neat freaks in the Manstracy household.

On Sunday, we packed up the Spawn and met up with good buddies Jess, Jeff and little Henry at Children’s Fairyland in Oakland.

For those who do not know what it is, Children’s Fairyland is a park filled little scenes from fairy tales. You know, Jack & Jill, The Old Lady in the Shoe, Peter Rabbit, etc. So, you can imagine how surprised I was to discover some pornographic images in a park that is supposedly for kids.


No pants! Naughty!

Actually, it’s a pretty damn cute park. We had a good time. The Boy is still a little young for it, but when he is 3, he will go nuts in there. He did love the pirate ship and spent a little time steering and being cute, as is his way.

One of my favorite things in the park is all the hand-painted signs. They are pretty neat. Of course, they are not as awesome as the hand-painted signs that my friend Jess makes and sells in her Etsy Shop. (You guys should check them out. You won’t be sorry.) I seriously debated stealing this one and hanging it in my cube at work.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, go to baseball games, kick breast cancer's ass, explore with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
