No More Monkeys Doing What We Did

24th March 2013

Recently, my friend Bea from New York came into town to play a show in San Francisco. It was really great to see an old friend, roam around a still unfamiliar city, and jump on hotel beds together!

My I suggest this activity, when you have one of those realizations that unlike Spiderman, pigeons, and balloons, you will probably never be able to fly.

All you need is two beds and a pretty high ceiling!

11 Facts About Pee…I Mean Me.

11th November 2011

Everyday, I will encounter multiple things and places that spark a memory or an emotion that are uniquely my own. However, when asked on the spot about pretty much anything that defines me as a person, I constantly draw blanks.

The other day, I got a note from my amazingly crafty homemaker friend Bea asking me to share some facts about myself through Instagram. Although at that moment the request left me starring at a crack in the wall, trying to think of anything about myself that was even remotely interesting, I was excited about coming back to this self serving idea.

Even when I was just a wee emotional nugget back on the LiveJournal farm, no one had ever involved me in one of these silly survey-esque things. This was to be a new first!

So yesterday, when my alarm went off, I gathered up some supplies and went about my day of errand running with a plan. To stop along the way, write out personal facts that I was reminded of as they hit me, and take a photo of the fact along side the thing that triggered it.

I packed the following fact documenting items:

  • scissors
  • markers
  • composition book
  • photos that didn’t turn out quite right
  • artist tape
  • and a fully charged iPhone (& Hipstamatic app)

Since its now 11/11/11, and I’m pretty much an 11 year old with a bank account, I figure its fitting to share 11 random facts about myself!
