Cleaning Tip: I love cooking and hate cleaning. Especially when my meal involves cleaning out a food processor or hand blender. Theres just no good way to get under that blade with a sponge. The other day I found that by putting some soap and water in a cup and blending it with the blender, it really did the trick AND was kind of fun to see bubbles form!

After I watched all the Rick Moranis movies that both Netflix and my VHS selection had to offer, I spent some time on the phone with Sam who convinced me to start a Formspring page. I’m unsure of how I feel about it but so far its still there. It is also now on here with visuals. Prepare to get your mind blown WHILE wanting to punch me in my condescending little face.
Today I had big plans to ride my bike, go to the beach, and play in the park. Unfortunately, the rain has ruined these childlike plans leaving me at home remembering how much I used to like the movies featuring retired Canadian comedian, Rick Moranis.
So, today I declare is Rick Moranis day!
It is my dedicated to watching Rick Moranis movies and sewing like a Singer.
if you have instant Netflix, you can sorta partake in Rick Moranis day, too!
Can I share a moment, here? ok thanks.
The Specials was my palate band. Ya know…that band where you realize that you actually like a type of music and not just what you hear on the radio.
I was maybe 10 or 11 years old. While on the way to the mall, I saw the cassette laying by my feet in the back of a friends moms car. I liked the simplicity of the art work and asked if we could put it in. I didn’t know anything about what I was hearing other than it had somehow instantly made me happier than ice cream and creepy crawlers ever could again. All I could seem to do was kind of let tears seep from my eyes and occasionally kick my feet with joy. I didn’t want that car ride to end because nothing could make me as happy as hearing that music for the first time just had.
What was your palate band? (I love knowing these little things about people!)
It was amazing to see a slew of men over 50 years old with more energy than I’ve had since I first heard their music. I had spent so many years just knowing I would probably never get the chance to see them though, that nothing about the show wasn’t amazing for me.

When we left and I came to, I realized a few things:
- my jacket got a beating
- my Chucks are destroyed
- my mouth was bleeding
- I’d lost my voice
- ……….I may have “skanked”
I regret nothing, except for not trying to weasel my way back in for day two of the show.
But my single regret won’t hold for long, because I was reminded that I will soon be heading back for their FREE show in Central Park on August 22nd!
Check out some impressive photos from the show: here.
and this kind of odd video someone put together: here.
Last week I was kidnapped! An old friend from the west coast came through New York while working, then took my shoes hostage, and took me along with him for a few days. From what I hear, they’re supposed to lock you up in a basement, give you a slice of Wonder bread, and send poorly composed letters to your family out of newspaper clippings, right? Well luckily for me, these guys had it all wrong…
I warn you that there is a lot of photos behind the cut
I feel like my friends are all so amazing, creative, and funny that its a shame to not have a damn good photo of each and every one of them in my life. Here, I’ve taken a collection of shots from the people I have spent some quality time with in the past month and linked them together. Although aesthetically pleasing, the solid colored walls probably create a very impersonal photograph to you. For me though, I can remember every situation in which I ended up conveniently place near each saturated setting. What we laughed about, what the weather was like, what we ate, ect.
This series a little bookmark to remember my adventures of the month. I hope to continue it, through out the next couple of months. Eventually having a place to display them all at their proper size.
I know that Easter isn’t about bunnies, but how much cuter are they than a zombie jesus. I mean….common.

I had recently recovered a hard drive full of music that I haven’t heard since high school, made myself a girly Ska mix, and spent all of yesterday partaking in my favorite spring time activity. SPRING CLEANING!
My non-cubicle was my favorite and most improved area.
Feel free to step into my office: (more…)
