Last week I made a bed for my kid's lizards out of fake Tiffany's box, a piece of dishcloth and an old pillowcase.


Because he wanted to sleep with the lizards and I didn't think that was such a good idea. Because I thought if the lizards had a place to take a nap, he would feel better about taking a nap himself. Because I have an MFA from Columbia University and knew I could whip up a lizard bed in three minutes and was up to the fucking challenge! Word to your mother. In the same spirit I made heart-shaped pancakes on Valentine's day- freeform. If there's a problem, yo- I'll solve it. Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it.

Arlaina -- you made my day. I followed you here from Suzie's client blog, completely unsuspecting. Vanilla Ice quotes? Book mites? Red-freaking-velvet cake? You're perfect. Your blog is perfect. I'm adding you to my blogroll tonight.
It's also a relief to know Suzie has another client old enough to buy a mojito.
Welcome to Suzie's list! Congrats on the book, too.

I don't know if I'm more impressed with your DIY lizard bed or the fact that you are willing to live with a lizard in the house. I am becoming less tolerant in my old age :)

you've got mad skillz, Ms. T. I thought for a moment those were real lizards--they are not, right?

They are not real lizards.. If they were they would need a much more substantial bed.

Arlaina: I must "take heed 'cuz YOUR a lyrical poet" and FYI: "Miami's on the scene just in case you didn't know it."
