Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my little corner of the internet. It’s a little bit dusty over here, but—

*pulls up a chair and wipes down the seat*

There you go, good as new.

Now, where was I?


Welcome to DitrieMarieBowie.com version 5.0! For those of you who are new to my site: if you love books, string, and animal things, you’ve come to the right place. My goal is to bring you cute, fun, and happy news. If you’re weary of clicking through an endlessly negative cyberspace, you’re welcome to hang out here as long as you like. But promise you won’t eat all the cookies, okay?

For those of you who are used to my site, here are some of the new features of 5.0:

  • Fancy, swishy, sparkly new theme
  • Easier to scroll to the comments section
  • More content
  • Less visual clutter

Known bugs: posts from earlier versions might look a little strange. This is totally normal and does not require a visit to the optometrist. Unless you’ve been putting off going to the optometrist. In which case, you should probably go.

  1. Hey, I was recommended your blog by @SarahBruso and I just wanted to let you know how awesome I think it is. From the moment I saw that one lonely chair with the balloon I knew this was a party I wanted to be at. The sports are evil post had me in stitches. Looking forward to reading much more from yo.
