ohJoyGreen tea ice cream and illustrations by Rob Flowers make my heart-a-flutter

mason cake

  • Making cupcakes in mini mason jars. (perfect for sending in care packages)
  • Window shopping for dresses.
  • Destroying the witch before she destroys me, during Left For Dead. Its how I imagine a crazed anorexic girl would go if she came lunging toward me….

the ladies room of Slainte Bar

  • Makeshift waterproof laptop casing from Fed Ex envelopes
  • Simonlumb’s target clock
  • The kind of friends that hug upon the very first hello and want to make sure you get home safe
  • Watching house shows on HGTV, and feeling better about my interior style.

  • The breakfast pizza from Little Doms
  • Hoping into a well made bed at night
  • The peeling that follows a really bad sunburn
  • Robert Longos sharks on charcoal
  • Visiting friends who do not find the need to entertain me
  • Doing things 10 years too late. Like watching Freaks and Geeks in its entirety and shuffling through Built To Spill albums

  • Riding bikes and listening to Artie Lange.
  • Looking through’ Tiger Butters blog in the middle of the night with friends and laughing till our stomachs ache
  • Sampling ice cream and walking down the street with my tongue suctioned to the scoop of the tiny spoon
  • Emails from half developed friendships that ended on bad terms that throw differences aside and hope that all is well
  • Finally being able to go back to Bikram yoga as a non smoker and impressing my instructor and myself

  • Flying during the day with the window open to realize how small I really am.
  • Making robots, people watching in theme parks, and playing video games with Danny Fase.
  • These Eric Carle inspired cupcakes.
  • The links Justin sends me. Like these poor fucking poodles that never seize to make me laugh
  • Being able to hear rumors told about me and taking them in with humor instead of offense.

  • Making dinner for friends that stop by unexpectedly
  • Having my head scratched till I pass out….and drool…like a retarded cat

    I also missed out on freaks and geeks the first time around and just finished it last month. I made all of my friends watch it with me on our beach vacation even though they’d already seen it. It was awesome.

    Those poodles… I had a dream last night that I had a huge fat orange cat and I would trim its hair in certain places and dye it red and make it wear a green hat… I called it Tomato Cat. At least I’m only crazy in my dreams?
