GTFO, American Express

February 13th, 2015 · No Comments · Lori, z. blacklist

About a year ago, we got an AmEx card only because we got a Costco membership. At least one of these is getting out of our life this week. In a hasty moment of anger, I Tweeted we’d be quitting Costco too, over this AmEx fubar. And we might. It’s their fault we even had […]

not even a Living Wage

February 11th, 2015 · No Comments · Lori, work

A few years ago, Living Wage (here’s Austin’s) was all the rage; at least it was in my sociopolitical circles. I considered it worthy to hope for, but quite unlikely to ever materialize. Today, I was smacked in the face with why it’s so damn important. Real Life Example #1 I’ve been job hunting. Ideally, […]

Viral Allergies

January 29th, 2015 · No Comments · Austin, Lori

January always brings allergies to Austin in the form of Cedar Fever (the pollen from up in Hill Country). Even people who have never suffered from allergies are bothered by this stuff. This year, though, I had to take it up a notch. I spent 10 days with a bronchial virus that had me sneezing […]

Death to Popcorn

January 8th, 2015 · No Comments · Lori, projects

When we moved in, we didn’t hire the painters to knock down all of the popcorn ceilings. We just didn’t want to spend that money on that task at that time. Turns out, we chose wisely. Spritz it with water, wait 10 minutes, and scrape it with a putty knife….and it falls to the floor […]

2014 sucked

December 30th, 2014 · No Comments · Blue Lime, Lori

2014 sucked Daddy hated that use of that word, but it’s the most fitting. (Also, he was a bit too literal at times. He also hated “Life’s a Beach” because he thought it was just “Life’s a Bitch” in polite form instead of a xtian re-write to spin the whole concept positive. Parents can be […]

Brass, brass everywhere

November 7th, 2014 · No Comments · Lori, projects

When we bought #DomaLuza, it was hard to see how much brass there was in the house because the previous owner had so many brass and/or gold colored things among her possessions. Even with all of her things out of here, I couldn’t stand how much brass there was, especially the shiny brass. And no, […]

It’s been a while since we just did a plain old update. So here are some things going on with us. Last winter, we got a new domain. You can now find us at BlueLime.us instead of the longer address. Hopefully, we’ll streamline some of the other stuff, too. At some point last winter, I […]

Out with the old, in with the new.

September 20th, 2014 · No Comments · Blue Lime

Last year, when we got a new refrigerator, we gave up trying to fit the little hole in our kitchen. We had space along another wall, so it’s there. The hole left was ugly & wasted space. IKEA solved the problem for us with a shelf & hooks to make a pot rack. It looks […]
