Hello again everyone! (This is TamTams, by the way. I changed my name for October spooky fun). I know this is my first post in forever but I’ve been a busy bee at work and kinda mostly lurk now. But I’m just bursting to say that my best travel buddy and I are going to Japan next year in the spring!

Bit of a quandary....HALP

I finally got an email back from a job that I’d really really like. The boss wants to set up an interview and is impressed by my resume but it starts in late May (if I get it) and I’ve got a family vacation scheduled for the first week of June.

Treat Yo Self Baby Shower Gift: Crowdsourcing Treat Yo Self Baby Shower Gift: Crowdsourcing

Hello! My best friend is having a baby shower and while I’m getting her something off her registry for the baby, I’d like to get her a more personal gift so she can have something nice for herself since I know people get very baby-focused and forget about the mom.

The Washington Post has a great recap of some of the stuff we should be paying attention to. I find that there is just so much terrible shit going on that I can’t keep up so this was a great way to see what I need to see with links to more in-depth stories.

Der TinyFingers can’t even keep a cover band on the docket for one of the inauguration balls. Sad!

Buzzfeed is reporting that another national brand has hired one of those male Instagram youths to be the face of a campaign. He’ll be spokes modelling for a new mascara. He’s named Manny Gutierrez and I can see why they chose his for mascara because the boy does LASHES with his make-up looks.
