Kate Bush is kind of amazing.
The ants are winning.
We swept, we mopped, we sprayed. We thought they were gone. But this morning we got home and they were back in full force. No longer solely interested in just the kitchen, they’ve designed a new route that manages to hit pretty much every room on the first floor. I’d estimate their numbers somewhere around ‘way too fucking many.’ I’ve been in the mindset that...

No joke. He was there with 4 or 5 women that were about half his age. Scott Seekins is a Twin Cities artist who is famous for being famous here in the TC (like Julia Alison, but before the internet). You literally see him everywhere; always walking, always wearing either a black suit or a white one, always with some crazy looking hair and a headband (you’ll know him when you see him). But...
