What?! You said one time I got drunk in the middle of the day and staged a fabulous photo shoot of all my plants against a leopard print Snuggie?! (Ok, sure. I did this for one of my last posts on the Hairpin as a final act of being-embarrassing-at-work. The Times then linked to it my job announcement. Here's an update, including some new plants.)
  1. Peanut Butter
    E613f6b2 e4ea 4ae8 a503 d6a22b2a2dc7
    My first adult plant, given to me from a friend, given to her in exchange for some vegetables at a Greenmarket. Peanut Butter is a geranium and tall as shit and blooms beautiful red flowers and I know I need to repot him soon but I'm dreading it!!!!
  2. Farley Granger
    C982ffde bd25 4785 b038 fdbb9a516570
    This plant is mad cute, just like him.
  3. Lisa Vanderpump (now deceased)
    C2f4fc75 2171 46f4 9e5c 18115eea5773
    My boyfriend got this to congratulate me on my new job. I had just discovered the gift that keeps on giving: Vanderpump Rules. This plant smelled good, and LV looks like she smells good, so it made perfect sense. Sadly my boyfriend never told me what type of plant she was and I watered her too infrequently and then she died. I'm still not done with Vanderpump Rules, so if this reflects the show: no spoilers.
  4. Louis Armstrong and His Hot Five
    D018a8a3 648b 47b0 a638 d6d4c83efcde
    Mad plants in a tiny pot, just like Satchmo and his crew.
  5. Zapp Brannigan
    Ab33db75 acd3 4560 b7ad 6acfa72782bc
    SORRY LEELA LOVERS: Zapp Brannigan is Futurama's best character. The weird thing is that the plant is never thirsty, unlike his namesake.
  6. Simon and Garfunkel
    01f0271a b73f 4005 8013 8d788d5efb54
    You *really* didn't think I wouldn't name one of my plants after the best folk rock duo the world has ever seen ESPECIALLY when one of them is mad taller than the other???
  7. Not a plant, just an animal that fucked up my photo shoot.
    7a4c372d bfd1 4cf3 81bd f9b3e180c7f9
  8. "Bamboo"
    01e14a33 7ca1 407a 84f4 fcf3d8b200f8
    (I always forget about this plant oops)
  9. Chirlane McCray and Anita O'Day
    69d9ce4f 25bb 47bf a60a 78906f023c14
  10. Jellz
    B334adeb faae 4172 b2a0 2b0781260706
    Around the same time I got Peanut butter, my roommate, "Kellz," got her first plant. I let her sit her plant next to Peanut Butter ON THE SOLE CONDITION we call them "Peanut Butter and Jellz." On Mother's Day, I went out and bought a balloon and put it in her room and said it was from Jellz (in an only mildly creepy way) and yet she FORGOT ABOUT HIM. He is still not that well, tbh.
  11. Frank???
    55b76ecb 3443 40cf 8382 590b331ea4ed
    I got this plant from IKEA -- my first big adult plant! -- and I want a dope name for it but I saw it and immediately thought "Frank" and now I can't shake it???
