I feel that even the most profound words in the English dictionary could not do justice to the extraordinary circumstances and happenings of the last three weeks of this lovely life of mine.

Alas, I will attempt to elaborate.....   

Life is devastatingly stunning and seeks to astound my formerly somnolent heart during the most unexpected moments.

We All Die Someday

On the afternoon of October 17th, 2010, Miss Sara Jane Laue spent time in the cemetery figuring out where to dig her own grave.

You Are The Prettiest Thing That I Have Seen All Day

Taking a trip to the Atomic Garage in the Valley Junction makes me happy. Especially when it is a perfect fall day like today.

The Perfect Day for Clogs

Me and Jeffery Campbell have a love-love relationship. You see, the brand continuously keeps making the most fabulous shoes and I keep spending all of my money on them! Today felt like a perfect day for sky high wooden clogs. Added bonus, I gain like 4 inches in height!

In Chronological Order.....

Artist Justine Lai gave me a chuckle today. She has taken to painting herself having sex with all of the US presidents.... In chronological order! I like the one of her and Mr. Lincoln the best so far.

Check out her site for more lovely paintings. Click HERE.

Des Moines, You Are Beautiful

Ah Des Moines, you are a fair, fair lady.

Roller Girl

Tonight, my roommate Christina and I went to the roller skating rink for some much needed practice before derby try-outs. I love it! I had so much fun and I feel like I am getting much better and am quickly gaining skills that I will need for the skill tests that I will need to take in order to get on the team. I think the smile never left my face the entire time I was skating- I probably looked ridiculous and that is OK cause I felt ridiculous-ly happy! Yay!

Doll Parts

Oh yes, just as demented as it looks, I assure you.

I will take one of each, please!

Thank my lucky stars for El Bait Shop in downtown Des Moines and it's lovely sampler of beers. OK, so maybe I am a bit naive or something but I thought the beers would be a little bit smaller. I was certainly a bit tipsy after finishing my sampler entitled, "You Put What In My Drink?" The beers arrived on a plank and I had a lovely time going around and trying each. The interesting thing is that the flavor really seemed to change when I started to eat my meal. For instance, the Rouge Chocolate Stout tasted considerably more chocolate-y and a bit coffee like after having salty food. All in all, I would have to say go sample some beer at El Bait Shop if you are in town. It is a darn good time.

Not So Happy Meal

Today's article on Yahoo News was a bit of an interesting, but hardly shocking one. Some genius was awesome enough to experiment with the decomposition time of a McDonalds Happy Meal. Not so surprisingly, the thing has resisted decomposition. The kicker is that the food pictured is 6 months old! It's like zombie food or something!!!!!

Making a Mixed Tape

Gotta love the fine art of making a mixed tape. I will be making one this week and it has been a while. Hopefully it will turn out OK. For some reason, making a mixed tape always made me so nervous! As in, "Don't judge my selections too harshly, please!"

Holy Fuck.

The Japanese Popstars Feat. Green Velvet - Let Go from David Wilson Creative on Vimeo.

I think I just got my mind blown.

If Only I Could Be This Cool.....

Damn.  I love the way this girl moves in her tight, shiny futuristic dress. Bang Bang.

Old Friends

It is always nice to spend the day with an old friend you haven't seen in ages :)


My friend Kendra's daughter Aurora is one of the most hilarious kids I have ever met. Recently, the talented and fabulous Erykah took some photos of the super girl in her very hot pink costume. I love them so very much!

The World's Most Dejected Bird

Thank God for Mars Cafe. My sanctuary. A place where I feel comfortable to pick up a pen and start to draw again after all of these years. And write. My home.

Plum Wine Sake on a Sunday Night

Always one to give in to spontaneity, when I was itching to get out of the house last night and heard that Kelsey had a bottle of plum wine sake, I definitely felt much need to celebrate! I packed up a bar of Lindt dark chocolate with orange, Nutella, an apple, and a six pack of Boulevard Wheat. What ensued was nothing more than a giggly good time.

Kelsey's mom had given her a little bitty tea set imported from China where the dragon turns red when heated up and heated up sweet sake is the best!  We got tipsy, played with Nadir the Corgi, and chatted about all of the wonders of the world:)  A very good night, indeed! 


I will never stop loving my teen anti-hero, Kurt Cobain. This picture is amazing. I will forever want to know more about this man and the mystery enveloped around his life and death.  

If anyone has some spare cash, they should buy me this book from

Banksy Simpsons Intro

British street artist Banksy created the most recent Simpsons intro.  Alot of interesting talk has resulted from this gutsy move.  What do you think?

Check out some of the articles out there:

Autumn Season & Spencer the Dog

The autumn season has come upon us and behold, my lovely dog Spencer as he prances and waddles in his new skeleton hoodie.  What a cute little guy!

Pink Tutu

Today, I revisited-the DAV Thrift Store to pick up the most unforgettable theatrical attire I had seen on the racks the other day.  Although it might be a bit impractical for a 28 year old woman to have a pink tutu in her closet, I will agree to disagree.  This thing is magic!  When I put on that green sequined top and matching tutu, I feel like hula hooping the afternoon away on a high wire!  
This get-up makes me want to run away with the circus!

Joblessness is Like a Fine Wine

Yes, just like a fine wine.  Wait, should I get a cup?  Eh.

You Had Your Way With Me

Huggy Bear makes me fucking happy as hell. 

You've got a silver rocket burning a hole in your pocket.....

This kid is trouble.

Doggy Friends & Their Cute Humans

Spencer is making friends in Des Moines!  I love being in such a dog friendly town and going on doggy play dates as well as to the dog park.  Spencer is very happy that his pack includes Gus & Sam and their human, Christina. Love it!

Home Sweet Fucking Home

A few weeks ago, I moved..... again.   

I moved to the Des Moines area into a house with a kick ass roommate and between her dogs and mine, we have 3 little guys running free and dog piling into my bed in the morning.  I am happy to be in a place where I have lots of friends who care about me.  I feel very positive about the future and I know good things are happening all around me.  And, Spencer has a yard to play in now!

Just Thought You Might Like To Know.....

Just incase you were one of those nay-saying bitches that I went to primary school with or one of those coke-head whores that I went to university with, I wanted to remind you that I am not a mangy dog that you can kick under your feet.  I don't know why it took me so many fucking years to figure it out but guess what, I AM GOOD LOOKING!  Yeah!

This email from OKCupid (yes, the dating site), arrived in my email box the other day and it made me smile.  Apparently, users have rated me higher than average and the other cool thing about this is that I am not looking slutty or showing skin, it's all about my cute face. <3>

Rockin' Out in the a.m.

Ah, the glorious trials and tribulations of unemployment.  By far the best thing so far about my joblessness has been the ability to wake up whenever I feel like it and then to rock out all morning long to some quality jams.  This morning was a bit Riot Grrl/ early 90's, gritty and raw, just the way I like it.

Note to self:

I will not base my self worth on how I look.

I want a Timmy Woods poodle purse sooo badly!

How cool would I be if I walked into the office on Monday morning with a bitchin' pink poodle purse?!  I want it so badly and it's only $275!

Close Up

Going out in the rain....

I have never been one to let a little bit of rain ruin my whole weekend. On Friday night, Will, Pam, and myself when to the Englert for Cirque Stupendo and Les Dames de Burlesque. What an amazing show. Afterwords, we went to the Deadwood, of course!

Iowa City Pride

Today, Spencer the Dog and I hit Iowa City Pride for some fun and friends. NOTE: I went alone so there was no one to take photos of me and my dog so I used two from the Little Village taken by Kent Williams.

Doesn't Spencer look soooo cute getting his Pride on?  Spencer the Dog was a huge hit with his rainbow glitter fairy wings! Too bad the poor pup was too hot and tired to go further in the parade after only a few blocks.  He did, however, get about a million photos taken and was petted and cooed over by every passer by.
