#Ratstagram

Happy Friday!  I'd like to introduce you all to the newest members of my family: Henry, Lionel, and Malcolm, from back to front. Last Friday, we headed out to one of the faraway southern suburbs to pick out a trio of babies from the Pittsburgh Rat Lovers Club.  Recently, they'd had an influx of beebs, which of course led to my weird little heartstrings being tugged.  Steve and I packed up the car and headed out to pick & choose. Henry caught my eye first, because as we like to say in Pittsburghese, he's "nebby."  He wants to know what we're doing, ...

Lazy Moved-In Sunday

By 2 , , , , Permalink 0

Hi all! Since I skipped out on the last two Lazy Sunday posts, I'm going to have to make this one really worth your while.  We have a lot to catch up on! & Do you have a Jux yet?  I haven't created one yet, but people like Danielle Hampton make it look super cool!  Apparently, it's like Tumblr, but more focused and with fewer 13-year-olds.  Not a bad idea, in my opinion. & I recently discovered A Prince and Prozac, and I was sitting there laughing to myself, alone, glass of wine in hand.  If you want to lead as glamorous a life ...

Why did it never occur to me before to address my posts with "Darlings?"  What the balls is wrong with me? Darlings? Darlings. I took a week and a half long hiatus from blogging, not because I wanted to or because I got bored, but because life has kicked my ass this semester.  I am so, so glad that I started Marvelous Darling when I did, and that I threw myself into it with typical Scorpio gusto, but at this point in my life my schooling has to come first.  Luckily, I am one week away from being done! First thing's first: I know ...

Excitement and End of Semester Blues

Pretties and handsome gents! It's been a crazy-ass time over here.  I had a dog for a couple of days last week, and in tomorrow's Instagrams post (look forward to it! ...please?), you'll see a lot of the little cutiepie.  I was alerted to more than 50 bomb threats because I go to the amazing University of Pittsburgh, which is currently being straight-up terrorized.  I made a glittery iPhone case which I'm considering selling in my own online boutique this summer (!).  And last but not least, I've been hit hard by end of semester blues and highs. Can we go ahead and share ...

World Rat Day!

Hi pretties. This is pretty much the furthest thing from a sex topic, but I'm compelled to talk about it anyway, because it's still a topic near and dear to my heart: rats as pets. That's my chubby cuddly thing, Ewan.  Not all rats are the size of Chipotle burritos, but I have this tendency to adopt really large boy rats.  I like big ole cuddle monsters. The tails squick a lot of people out, and I can sort of understand that.  They're scaly, kind of weird, but you get used to them.  Did you know their tails are actually covered in fuzz? ...
