Ruby the Ewok Terrier

BY Dawn in General |

This is Ruby, my favorite neighborhood pup. I'm not sure what breed she is, but I'm pretty certain that it's some kind of Ewok Terrier mix. Every time I see her I am reduced to a puddle of squeals and ... Read More

The way the cookie crumbles

BY Dawn in Eat Me |

It's also a time of year when young girls learn to be entrepreneurs, selling cookies to raise money and prizes for their troop.

BY Dawn in Music Stuff |

While doing a little early Spring cleaning, i unearthed 3 converse shoeboxes of old mixtapes. Some probably haven't been listened to in over 10 years. Most are covered with various stickers, magazine cut outs, and sparkley nail polish. A lot are from ex boyfriends and bff's, (so bittersweetly nostaligic), one was a homemade demo from my very shortlived surf rock band, The Shortwaves (fact!), and others were random mixes I made for trips and specific bus rides. I ... Read More
