More Popular Than Being A Witch

There are no words for how happy this headband made me.


And witchy.

I made myself really creepy with the help of PicMonkey.

When I’m not being a witch, I’m becoming more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.

My Other Hangouts (don’t tell my blog):

  • God is Love: The Daily Lessons of God in Parenting: On Progressive Christianity, my monthly column came out. I wrote about an unexpected conversation I had with my son on how God is love first and foremost and how we can talk about God can be in everyday conversations.
  • Enter These Giveaways and Promote Yours: On This Blogger Makes Fun Of Stuff, we started a giveaway link-up where you can add any giveaways you are running on your blog and we promote them. The more people who link up, the more we all get the word out about all our awesome giveaways. It’s worth a shot!

Favorite posts I didn’t read, I mean, write:

  • When I Used To: From All Work And No Play Makes Mommy Go Something Something, a mom, who is depressed, shares the person she was at 21 running a trauma unit in the ER and the person she is at 34 struggling with bipolar and making a sandwich for her son. (heartbreaking)
  • Coconut Oil: The Edible Beauty Routine: I ask It’s A Dome Life to write a guest review for me while I was on a mini-vacation, and she wrote about the wonders of real, organic coconut oil — in the kitchen, on the skin, for health and beachy, smelling happiness. (beachy)
  • Sept. 11 Documentarian Wins MacArthur Genius Grant: From NPR, Laura Poitras, a documentarian making a trilogy of films about the post-Sept. 11 world is interviewed. She also has been detained so many times by the US that she now has to do most of her work in Europe and has to put friends and family on alert to keep track of her whereabouts. (sad and important)
  • How to take Incredible photos of your friends: From The Oatmeal, where they remind us how to take crap pictures with our phones of mediocre events to post on Facebook. (funny)

PS. I’ve called my posts with link to cool pieces “epilogues” and “more popular than,” and I’ve considered “round up” and “read while bored,” but I’ve never liked any of the names. I’m too picky about titles and will even change the title of a post 24 hours later. I HAVE COMMITMENT ISSUES (except when it comes to Scott and blogging regularly). Do these need a name? Or can I just let it go?

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. I get it, I am a freak about things like titles too. Wait… I’m sorry if I just called you a freak…

    I like More Popular Than, but you could call them More Than Enough!

  2. did you get that headband at Old Navy, I think I have the same one. I LOVE IT!!! of course you look amazing in it!!

    channeling a witchy you. AWESOME.

    1. I actually got it at this local pharmacy that is also a diner and a place you can buy random stuff like pressure bandages and witch headbands. It’s awesome and my husband and I try to eat there at least once a week.

  3. Thank you so much for the shout out.
    Now lets get to talking about your complexion…what did Michael Jackson use to turn white?
    Is your skin sensitive?

  4. Very cool headband- I made myself into a sugar skull face yesterday but it required a lot of make-up. Picmonkey has a much easier(less messy) way to do that I’m seeing.
