HELLO. I am a derisive owl, as well as a PhD-er in art history. Sometimes I like to stay up late and eat pickles. I ALSO HAVE A WEAKNESS FOR CAPS LOCK.
Super excited/guilty feeling: extra paycheck this month coincides with JCrew Factory 30% everything sale! Currently in the mail to me: 2 cotton sweaters (camel and jade), black pencil skirt and neon orange necklace. The clothes are long-time wants and the necklace is an impulse buy.
I haven't bought new clothes in SO LONG (since like... almost Christmas last year?) with the exception of a couple replacement pairs of every day shoes and I feel slight panic hovering under my excitement.
Also! Thanks for all the lipstick input! I'm the proud owner of a Tarte Matte Lip Crayon in a bright pink and I've been wearing it every day!!! My boyfriend told me I looked very pretty when I came home from the office the other day so I think it's working its magic.

This week with the Bergy Bits
I spent a day at home sick with The Clown; silver lining, I got to jealously admire his inch-long eyelashes while he snored on the couch.
The girls got new boots, but we didn't find any for the Clown, only new sneakers. The next morning he wanted to wear The Quiet One's faux-fur-trimmed brown knee-high boots, and when refused, demnded tearfully "I go shops, get some boots", a sentiment that was repeated for several days.
Diva: [Clown] take his shoes off inna car.
(peers over at him in seat next to her, declares) You sad last time.
Clown, in self-satisfied tones: I take shoes off. I did.
( that morning he had kicked up a fuss about going to school and angrily took his shoes off in protest.)
The Diva talking in her sleep: "Gimme gimme gimme GIMME!... Put it baaaack. Gimme!"
The Quiet One waking up at 3 in the morning demanding juice, then milk, then being taken out to the living room, then taking an irrational dislike to the clock on the wall - "Not that one! NOT THAT ONE!" she screamed, tiny finger pointed and shaking with rage, angry tears flying out of her eyes. I still don't know what her beef with the clock was.
@adorable-eggplant I've tried so hard to find a job curating cats. I hope, someday, to make it my career.

@OwlOfDerision Wow, congratulations! That sounds like the best job ever! Stay away from the cursed jewels though if there are any.
@OwlOfDerision The day I can put 'Curator of Cats and Gifs' on my resume is the day I can stop paying in to my 401k because I will never need to retire.
@OwlOfDerision Congratulations!!! Someday will you regale us with stories about all of the fancy things you see?
@OwlOfDerision yay! Congrats http://31.media.tumblr.com/6a67668f84ecbdb9032a55e1b0f1814e/tumblr_mr64h2p68v1sxm63yo1_500.gif

Don't know if this has already been suggested, but can I lobby for the open thread to be posted earlier in the afternoon? Because let's face it, productivity goes down by A LOT after lunch on Friday.
