Tag Archives: crazy cat lady
My name is Julie and I am a Crazy Cat Lady. I rebelled against tradition and married a wonderful man named Andy, but it’s cool because he is a Crazy Cat Guy. We have six, that’s right, six Crazy Cats. It’s a problem, seriously, I love my fluffy children like super whoa big time. I’ll even go so far as to say that I like my cats more than I like most people. Are you going to lay across my lap when I am cramping and hormonal? I thought not. Just saying. As if I wasn’t crazy enough there is the new-fangled thing called the internet and like 30% of its content is cat-oriented. And they know about me, even the ads on the side of my facebook page are a covert cat overture. Like this neat t-shirt site? Oh wait, while you’re here did you see we have an ENTIRE section dedicated cat stuff? I’m only so strong you guys.
That last one is for you, Estefania! And these six products are a scarily accurate portrayal of my life. Even the tote bag! That’s what it looks like at dinner time in the Bucior household.

This DIY Cat Rope Coil Basket (full tutorial here) by Henry Happened is so damn cute. Perfect for a crazy cat lady like myself. But in true crazy cat lady fashion I can’t just make the basket, I have to make it better, and by better I mean bigger. I need to make a rope coil tote bag! Sure it will be heavy, sure it’ll be unwieldy, but it would be ADORABLE! I could even make one for my mom!
That is pretty much my mental dialog while I was reading through the tutorial. The tote bag idea came from the size of the basket I’d need to make to put one of my cats in it. They’re cute, but in no way dainty.

Sometimes fashion trends can make it really difficult to find clothing that fits well. The crop styles that have been the hotness for the last bit are driving me nuts. I am 5’10”, and curvy; these tiny babydoll dresses and short-waisted tops are leaving WAY more of me on display than I am comfortable with. The shirts I just won’t buy, but sometimes i’ll use the dresses as tunics and wear tights underneath them. Considering I only owned a single pair of tights until 2 months ago, it has been an interesting search. Since the tights are to help with a modesty issue, I usually go for ones that are completely opaque, but recently I’ve considered getting some quirky ones to wear when i’m not at the office. Something like these.
The perfect tights for a crazy cat lady right?
*Ladies, please remember that tights are not pants. If your butt is any where near the hem of your “dress”, do us all a favor and put on some pants. Even opaque tights are a little translucent, and your neon pink panties will show through.
I like to think that I am fairly adventurous in my choice of footwear. I have glittery ballet flats, embroidered silk converse, velvet ankle wrap heels and 5″ peep-toe sling backs with fuchsia patent roses glued to them, but these quirky heels by Irregular Choice might be just a bit to much.
I guess this is about what you should expect from a brand called Irregular Choice, and quite honestly the blue pair with cat heels do tickle my fancy, but I’m not sure where I would even wear something like this. Although, it would definitely give the rest of the office something to talk about if I got of pair to wear to work….hmmmmm….maybe after tax season?
I only have a three day work week because of the 4th, but it has been such a long week! We are cleaning out the storage unit for all of the companies old files and it is hot dusty work. All the lifting has definitely been a work out so the experience hasn’t been a total loss, but consequently I’ve haven’t been good for much in the evenings. I even convinced myself that reading through emails while watching TV counted as multitasking and was therefore a perfectly rational use of my non-work hours. Plus it’s been raining so it wasn’t like I could do the yard work I’d been planning anyway. So while I was multitasking last night, I clicked around one of my favorite online t-shirt stores looking through the new designs and poking around the sales section, after that I did what every crazy cat lady does and searched the site for “cat” shirts. Here are six of my favorite.
I limited myself to six, but there are more, a lot more. After me exclaiming “I want this one too” more than I dozen times the husband stopped looking at each new picture and resorted to making non-committal noises or nodding.
