Ms. Thang

Ms. Thang, originally uploaded by califmom.

This is what happens when you spend too much time indoors, avoiding laundry. You start photographing knickknacks.

Meet Ms. Thang. She lives atop the roll-top secretary that flanks my side of the bed. I met her downtown in a (now defunct) gift shop. It was their final day in business, and Ms. Thang was lookin' to get outta there; make a new start for bobble-headed self.

She doesn't care that it's not Christmas. To her, every day deserves a little bling.

This post brought to you by two unwashed loads of laundry.
