Today is World Emoji Day, and if you’ve been wondering why, check the date on the calendar emoji*. According to Emojipedia, July 17 was selected because iCal for Mac was announced at MacWorld Expo on July 17, 2002. The calendar emoji, in turn, inspired Emojipedia founder Jeremy Burge to declare World Emoji Day. And what’s […]

I’m not going back very far for Throwback Thursday: just to this July 4. I had expected my Independence Day celebrations to be limited to a July 3 outing with friends, when I wore this patriotic outfit, which I’ll post again for the hell of it. But my designing friend Stacy Lomman decided that we […]

I got my Independence Day look on one day early, for last night’s outing to the rooftop lounge at Ink48. I highly recommend the view there. I wore my Castelbajac sailor outfit, which I like to get out on or around July 4. I mean, when else can you wear something like this? What Wendy […]

To cover both these events, here is a December 2013 photo of me hugging a very disgrunted FitzRoy. And here is a July 2014 hug bestowed upon a somewhat startled Purrkoy. You can follow both my Exotic Shorthair kittehs […]

Purrkoy would like to thank the members of the armed forces who gave their lives for their country … especially the sailors. Aaaaand now the Village People are going to be stuck in my head for the rest of the day.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Believe it or not, Mother’s Day wasn’t created by Hallmark. It wasn’t even created by a mother. A child-free woman named Anna Jarvis organized the first Mother’s Day services with her own mother in mind in 1908.  Activist Julia Ward Howe had proposed a similar idea […]

So sweet! The name of Britain’s new royal princess has been revealed: Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. I’m all choked up about it. I vividly remember getting up early to watch young Diana Spencer get married to Prince Charles in 1981 and now I’ve seen Princess Di’s first granddaughter arrive. Speaking of arrivals, did you see little […]

I really need to get back to writing my history-inspired posts! Here’s a throwback one in honor of the Chinese New Year. One of my favorite badass royal ladies was Empress Wu, as she’s known now. When she ruled China in the 7th century, she used the name Emperor Shensheng (spelling may vary), making her […]
