A Few Days in the Life

Allow me to present Precocious Daughter's schedule from the last few days (keeping in mind that much of this is also my schedule):


Band practice 7:00 a.m.
School day
Karate 4:15-5:30 p.m.
Wind ensemble rehearsal (including drive time) 6:30-10:30 p.m.


Band practice 7:00 a.m.
School day
Football game (including prep and travel) 3:30-11:00 p.m.


Marching competition (including rehearsal and travel) 7:00 a.m.- 5:30 p.m.
Fill out college financial aid forms 7:00-8:00 p.m.


Wind ensemble concert (including travel time) 1:00-4:15 p.m.
Impromptu trip to Six Flags with friend (because why not?) 5:00-10:00 p.m.

School day
Time with her dad 4:00-?


Band practice 7:00 a.m.
School day
Marching band UIL competition (including prep and travel) 3:30-10:00 p.m.

As you can see, she actually got a good night's sleep Saturday into Sunday. Other than that, it's been up at 5:30 a.m. and asleep no earlier than 11:00 p.m. the whole damn time. And she just keeps going. My child is the damn Energizer bunny.

She never, ever stops smiling.

Oh, and at her wind ensemble concert yesterday, she signed her first autograph for a little boy who shyly handed her his program. It was adorable.

My kid is a rock star.

Me, I'm tired just writing about her.

Happy Sunday Singerie

If you've been reading this blog for more than five years...

...first of all, God bless you.

Secondly, you may remember that I have in the past written about my consuming passion for singerie, or art that incorporates monkeys dressed as and/or acting like people.

Like hentai can be a thing but this can't, right?

It's been a while since I've written about this topic that is close to my heart. Apparently I became unemployed, started a new job, got divorced, became the mother of a teenager, and other things instead.

Life is what happens to you while you're busy
saving pictures of monkeys acting like people.

But I still love singerie. So I've gathered together a whole new collection of images for you.

Please enjoy them, like them, share them.

Monkeys are amazing. Art is amazing. Monkey art is off the charts, yo.

I'll find more if you want. Let me know if you're Team Monkey Art.

Hint: I am Team Monkey Art regardless.
