getting ‘shotgun’ when it really makes a diffrence

seeing situations from a different perspective

teaching Charlie an awesome new trick!

sewing my finger into the sewing machine….

leaving slightly comical/ passive aggressive notes

having people in my life who will put on my clothes, and those who will take a train out of their way just to make me smile.

getting exercise by being ridiculous

when a row of photos I’ve taken come up in a row on Facebook.

honorable mentions:

  • Being stopped at the metal detector at the passport office, for a bottle of hot sauce in my purse. “Boss, is this considered a drink?” “Only if she’s Jamaican.”
  • re-watching The Smoking Room
  • getting cut off in a lunch line by a guy who insisted on buying my meal.
  • rearranging my office space
  • finally finding a way to stream I Love Lucy episodes
  • catching one of those old trains with the orange seats
  • pizza with bacon and eggs on it, from Robertas
  • spelling things out phonetically with a phone operator. “V as in Vagina” “….ok, that was V as in Victory, correct?”
  • teasing my hair up
  • jumping jacks
  • baking almost every day
  • prematurely digging out my summer clothes for my trip to Thailand, next month

    during my time in NYC, I spent many a low-budget movie shoot in the back of a white van. I tried to make sure that I drove as often as possible. That photo gave me flashbacks.

      nope. I get my wish list stuff sent to a different address. It was a pair of really expensive earrings that were sent to me as a christmas gift.
      Signed up for a PO Box, the next day :/

    Hey. I just found your blog and see that you’re trying to do the whole cute hipster thing. The problem is that you’re really butt ugly, and it’s annoying that you’re trying to sell yourself as something you will never be. You’re basically accusing people of being blind/and or highly impressionable. That’s how I feel about you and your blog. Remember this when you’re 50, single and poor. HTH.
