Henry came home and took Chooch back to work with him so I could maybe avoid being admitted to the psych ward this afternoon. I spent my time alone laying outside with a book about Albert Fish called “Deranged” (entirely apropos) and taking pictures of the wildflowers in my front yard.

I never take pictures of flowers, ever. Endless photo streams of flowers is one of my least favorite things in the world. But I figured since my grandma was gypped out of a proper send-off, the least I could do is post some floral photos in her honor.

I practically live in the ghetto. I hope you weren’t expecting roses.

Everyone deserves flowers when they die. Fine, even Katy Perry.

  1. Beautiful photos, Erin. I hope things get better for you soon. x

  2. OMG! “I practically live in the ghetto”. I’m going to look at a place, in the serious ghetto, tomorrow. Should be…interesting?

  3. ‘Gypped out of a proper send-off’…no funeral? I’m so incredibly sorry to hear about your Grandma’s passing and these strange circumstances, what a frustrating and heart-breaking ordeal this must be.

  4. The second one is my favorite, your pictures make common flora seem ethereal.


  5. If you need someone to talk to you can bend my ear. I’ll even let you text me and I never text.

  6. I’m so sorry to hear about your loss.

  7. My thoughts are with you.

  8. I’m sorry to hear about your Grandmother, Erin.

    On the other hand, I’ve read Deranged like five times, because it’s just so fucked up.

    • Thank you so much, Marci. <3

      I make Fish Xmas cards and Valentines. My friend Barb from work is super interested in serial killers and had never heard of him until she saw my cards so she became obsessed. This is actually her copy of the book I'm reading, & its amazingly sick and engrossing.

      Also: It still makes me happy to see your name here and on FB. Darkchat 4eva!

  9. Mom would probably agree with your flowers comment, she said she left some with her Sister during the “service”.

Say it don't spray it.
