Hey kids! This is a blog about whales. NO! This is a blog about caring for old people, living in California, pining for the Midwest, growing up a total oddball, finding other oddballs, the adoration of insects and spiders, craftiness, artsiness, and being happy. If you saw what I did there, you might also be interested to know that I completely wore out a rental VHS of that Ren and Stimpy episode as a kid. I’m pretty sure I’m the only one in the entire (admittedly small) town who ever rented it, so it’s not that it was popular. Also, I rented it constantly, so no one else really got the chance at it in the first place. That should tell you all you really need to know about me to start with. Proceed with caution.
