The Tale of Fred: Part 1- Finding Fred

  Fred was never loved- never loved the way a place should be loved. You could tell by looking at him; by the scratches on his bricks and the cracks in his foundation. Fred was built to be feared. I worked downtown, in a perfectly kept red brick building filled with perfectly painted walls and perfectly decorated tiny rooms. After awhile, I was lucky enough to be moved to one of the rooms with a window. It was easier, sitting at a computer inputting numbers, when I could look out at the world. I watched the tiny people walk along the streets from the fourth floor, all the while tap, tap, tapping at my keyboard. From my window, I could see Fred. The thing was though, for a long time I never saw Fred. He was always there, I'm sure, but amidst the parking garages, banks, and office buildings he was eclipsed. He must have been.

The Tale of Fred

A large part of why I started this blog was to share the story of Fred. Fred isn’t a person, it’s a place. Why Fred? Because even abandoned forgotten places deserve a name. In the next few weeks I’ll be sharing the sad and beautiful tale of Fred. Stay tuned . . .

Creepy-Cute Wedding Hair Throwback!

Throw back, ummm Monday? Yeah, let's go with that. Since I'm new and ya'll are getting to know me, I thought I'd share a Creepy-Cute from way back. Here's my hair at my wedding back in 2013. It's mainly cute, I grant you that. I was going for an old fashioned, wild-yet-tamed sort of 'do.

Welcome, Humans!

Sup! I don't know if it's cool to say "sup" still. But, who cares. Sup? Welcome to my blog! The name's Morgan. I'm a writer, "older" Millennial, crazy cat lady, coffee addict, and a lover of all things Creepy-Cute. What's Creepy-Cute you ask? Good question. Creepy-Cute is a style. It's something I've always loved, that I've come to find is an actual thing! Whoot! It's a mash up of totally opposite things- the uncomfortable or unsettling mixed with sugary sweet, jewel toned adorableness. Do you like skulls and unicorns? Then you may be Creepy-Cute. Do you long for a Lisa Frank journal, but also like old things with weird vibes? Then you may be Creepy-Cute. There are degrees to Creepy-Cuteness to be sure. I'm not a goth chic with black chain boots, fish nets, and white powder makeup with a rainbow bow in my hair (though that would be rad). I'm just a girl that lives in the in between. I like creepy stuff and I
