Oh Joy! (The hiding from the heat edition)

22nd July 2011


Judging how hot it is outside by ice cream and not thermometer.

when friends walk their bike in order to stroll with you

hair so blonde, it blends with walls

Roaming around air conditioned furniture stores and making myself at home on couches that belong to no one.

Slushie beverages!making silly faces

walking silly walks

pups with beards!

insects that look like belly button lint

Tea loving tee-shirts!

Magazine shops. I hope they exist forever.
Ice coffee in individual lager bottles!

always moving onto better things

people who take a love for pizza very seriously

The color green

movies in the park

plays on words

comfy beds with white linens becoming a spirt animal. I think mine would be a tamagotchi.

Shops that look like someones giant closet

when work can be done shoeless in a park

when things look much worse than they actually are

seeing Torche play live. Torche rules.

Just ask Jay!

or this interesting conservative!

Honorable mentions:

    My mom would agree with you about the Frasier marathons. She has them every night, except for Sunday. Agree with you on the peeling off a price sticker perfectly. I always feel like I conquered something huge. Great list!

    XOXO,
    Danielle

    Chloe! What kind of camera do you use? Did you go to school for photography or is it just your hobby you’ve gotten really great at over the years? I enjoy looking at your pictures.

    Which boats are we talking about? The only one I’ve been on recently is the Staten Island Ferry. As a one time resident of Staten Island, I can say it’s not that cool, because it takes you to Staten Island, but there are nooks in which I hide and write poetry.
    My ice cream was crazy melty – I had like a chocolate sundae soup. It was already slathered in hot fudge, the heat just made things worse. When I fail to peel off a price sticker perfectly, I go bananas. Oy.
