Show me something magical, show me delicate lace frost and the permanence of desire.

My autobiography will be called A Lifetime In Red Pants. Alternately, How Red Trousers Changed My Life. Alternately, Little Red and Her Party Pants.

Honey we came to dance

It's no tiny show in Brooklyn, but it is my favourite band with my best girlfriend. And then Trusty Chords to follow, and a little sneeze of what waking dreams can be.

Quilts, manic office hours, latch hook rug, quiet reading, $$$, Juelz Juelz Juelz Juelz, cozied up, huffs of warm breath, soft prickles; like blue spruce, tiny ornaments, envelopes of body, shared spaces, lone wolves, empty pages, full thoughts, trusty chords, midday breakfast, greasy eggs, warm oven, cinnamon and vanilla, peace. Quiet. Time.
My entire instagram feed is puppies.

Which is to say, I have achieved Internet-nirvana.

Happy birthday to one of the best people I know! Crustwell, you little gem. To the next ten years of friendship (I hope, cause I've got your name tattooed on me, sooooo...)!

Crowning glory.

When people say "count your blessings" I am like "each individual hair?"
It is flattering to the extreme to have Chef put a lobster chowdah on the menu and specify that it is in tribute to my New England roots.

Now maybe next time we go out after service, I won't drunkenly debate football (IM SO GOOD AT IT NOW) to strangers in a showing of Bostonian pride.

Stress dieting 101

These pants were tailored perfectly to my body exactly one month ago. In fact, I sent them back to be slightly loosened because the bum was very...glove-like.

If only I'd known.
