Our Heroine Posts a Nubbin

St. Thomas on a donut! My cowgirl hat is so ridiculously cute I can't stand it. When will my job switch from business formal to Western casual?

Our Heroine Goes Country

Last week I went to see Dolly Parton at Radio City Music Hall with Frank and Megan, at which event Frank wore his cowboy hat. And, I don't know why, but I was suddenly consumed with jealousy over his hat, and possessed of a fierce desire to own my own.

The problem is my giant Keeler-shaped head, which is the bane of both my and my brother's existence. It makes hat-buying a trial, I can tell you.

So I Googled "cute cowgirl hats" in different sizes and I ordered this one, which is hanging out at the UPS outpost in Secaucus, a mere day away from my loving hands:

How cute! I think I will wear it with short flowered sundresses and big gold earrings and people in Brooklyn will laugh at me but I won't care because in my head I'll think I look sorta like Sandra Bullock in Hope Floats, the movie during which I'm pretty sure I loved every. single. outfit.

And I thought about this hat and the pretty clothes from Hope Floats on my subway ride to and from work today and it made me smile.

Our Heroine's Shiner is Fading Quite Nicely, Thank You for Asking

Most of you probably know that I got snookered into the possession of two cats last year, practically before I knew what was happening to me. Basically, I made the mistake of stopping by an adoption center at a sidewalk fair where I saw an old gray cat being overlooked, at which point my heart broke in two because she looked so utterly lost and alone, and so I took her home and got her a friend.

So now I have two cats. And I am not allowed near adoption fairs. But anyway, the guy who makes these Simon's Cat videos knows cats better than anyone else ever! This video is a technically accurate reenactment of my morning, down to the smallest detail -- up to and including the black eye.
