When the dog bites, when the bee stings

When I'm feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite things,
and then I don't feel so bad!

1. Pictures of Bill Cosby wearing sweaters.

2. Imagining the Shrek donkey singing Party all the Time.

3. Manic Monday

4. Watching youtube videos of musical numbers.

5. When hipsters almost fall off their skateboards because their bangs are in the way.

6. Babies dressed as food.

I realized that I have a really difficult time answering when people ask me what I do for fun.

I'm not boring...I do things that are fun, but I usually end up answering, "Ummm...I ride my bike, and, uh, I go to the gym, and, uhhh, I'm in a book club..." I could never figure out why I couldn't answer that question well.

I think I figured it out. My main hobby is 'reading about things on the internet'.

No specific topic, or area of interest. I just like learning about things. This week, I've learned about:
- Preserving fresh basil (I performed a science experiment!)
- Feral children (Most have been proven fake!)
- Lyme disease (There's a contreversy!)

Now, I have an answer, "My hobbies include reading about things on the internet, and embroidery."

I've decided to take up embroidery.

This, in addition with my recent Carly Simon obsession makes me think that I am possibly actually 45 years old.

That's it.

That's it. The "Sexy fill-in-the-blank" Halloween costume trend is officially over.

I declare it.

Sexy Environmentalist?
Really, America?


Damn I love Carly Simon

If that means I can't be cool anymore, I'm okay with that.

Something exciting came in the mail!

This came in the mail today!

I'm so excited to start using it!

Though, I should probably admit that I'm eating toast with peanut butter and honey for dinner tonight.
