wait, what?

um. yeah. I don’t really know what to say. Part of me wanted to get in my car that minute, and then the rational part of me (which totally won, thank god) said “HELLO? What the hell are you thinking? Oh wait, you’re obviously not.” I wish I had a good story to share, but unfortunately I decided to be a responsible adult :/ Lame, right?

Mama mia!


Maggiano’s is so unbelievably amazing. First off, they serve everything family style and more importantly, they have fabulous gluten free pasta (and even better, a chef/staff that really GET IT!) Gotta love that Rigatoni “D” :) Mmm… food coma… can’t wait for lunch tomorrow!

"These boots are made for walking…

…and that’s just what they’ll do. These boots are made for walking and they’ll walk all over you…”

Yes, really.

There was a six car + semi accident on westbound I-90 just after 4pm so by 4:25 when we hit the bridge, we were just in the thick of it.

Awful. Oh, and did I mention that my gas tank light came on under the Convention center? Yeah.

New headboard! Antique solid wrought iron – heavy, inconvenient aaaand it didn’t fit in the Subaru. That’s right. So I had to make a few not entirely pleasant phone calls until my hero showed up :) Can’t wait to start painting!

highlight of my summer?

okay, the lame title was NOT my idea. As you may or may not have guessed it was a highlighter party (black lights, white clothing, retarded drawing, etc) technically the party started last night, but this was taken way after midnight… didn’t get home until close to 4am and then had the pleasure of heading into work. Thank god for coffee fumes to keep me awake!
