Mellow Yellow

Today marks the second visit of the cleaning lady, and I’m pretty sure she’s going to mutiny when she sees how dirty this place has gotten in two weeks. Little does she know that my cat attracts leaves like velcro and paint in the sink is a state of being over here.

Mellow yellow, dudes.

I may or may not already own a vintage lucite (ok, plastic) version that I picked up for a song, but there’s something about real glass that always sings its sweet siren song to my wallet.

Let me know if you come across one that costs less than an international adoption. I’m too capricious for that kind of┬ácommitment.
