Suburban Kamikaze
Suburbia, USA
Her address says suburbs, but her shoes scream "get me out of here...".
Interests: The Suburban Kamikaze has a lot of shoes. What of it? We shop at Target, plot world domination. We read a lot of books. We drink a lot of wine. We are not appreciated by our children. We reject suburban culture. We embody suburban culture. We laugh bitterly when we hear the words "suburban culture." Maybe you are one of us...

Like a garage sale where you don't have to talk to anyone. Perfect. SK

How bad can it be? It is Day 2 of Year of the Drawer and no one has left a half-eaten bagel or a knot of broken shoelaces in my freshly organized drawer. Anything is possible. SK

A little rearranging can be a good thing in a marriage. Unless I'm wrong. In which case you should probably just vacuum once in a while. SK

Definitely needs a "make me a sandwich" verse. There must be at least 30 days of Christmas in the teen calendar. SK

I know it's ambitious, but it's not crazy. The Year of the Closet would have been crazy. And yes, some of the things I took out of the drawer are still on the stairs, (sunglasses, charging cords, earbuds) waiting for the children to put them away in some other drawer, somewhere else, but that doesn't mean the Year of the Drawer has been a failure, no matter what Mr. Kamikaze says. -SK

On the first day of Christmas my teenager texted me: Just to let you know it's not all my mess. Also, I’m going to clean it up. On the second day of Christmas my teenager texted me: Are you planning... Continue reading

Let's not lose sight of the fact that by modern culinary standards, not counting the kind of people who make chicken pot pies from scratch, I really did make that chicken pot pie. I think that is the takeout takeaway here. SK

I plan to begin using it immediately. The word, not the little thing, which requires a little more, what is the word? Oh god, I am so tired. I am trying to remember when I washed my hair last. Do we have any olives? Oh yes, Effort. SK

Yes, but you have better taste in sweaters. And you can't put a price on that, probably. SK
