Good morning and Happy Friday, my friends! I thought you might want to know what's new with me (or not, but I'm going to tell you anyway), so today I'll just let my brain take over and say whatever it wants to say, no holds barred.
1 // I woke up with two honking spider bites, one on each butt cheek. There's also one on my right foot. They might not even be spider bites, but I saw this huge, disgusting spider on my wall the day before, failed to kill it, and am now assuming the worst. Upon finding these massive bites, I walked into our common room where two of my suitemates were watching TV, pulled down my pants, and said "not that I actually want to be crossing any boundaries or anything, but you guys have to look at my butt right now." Boundaries. Crossed. Also, I'd totally post a picture here, but I think that might be inappropriate material for the Internetz or something like that. (What is TMI?)
2 // Last night, in a sudden phase of needing to be immersed in knowledge and questions, we watched the documentary, Blackfish. It's amazing and heartwrenching, and the consensus is that SeaWorld is a big, fat lie. Take that information and do with it what you will. Our reaction during 93% of the film:
3 // While watching this fascinating piece on killer whales, my mind was suddenly taken over by ideas of about pages, navigation bars, signatures, blogrolls, and so on and so forth. You never know when inspiration strikes. And today, you're seeing the results of that. Call me efficient! (Also, Sarah at Venus Trapped in Mars has the best tutorials - so easy to follow!)
4 // Post documentary-watching, Kylie and I hit up In-N-Out. Because what else would you do thirty minutes before midnight? It's a bit shameful, really. It's also a bit shameful that it took me literally thirty attempts to get a semi-decent picture, and it didn't even turn out semi-decent. But here you go - I'm hoping that you get an idea of how wonderful a chat with your best friend, lots and lots of unhealthy grub, and country music cranked up high are. Yes, you get all of that through this one blurry, dark image. You're good.
5 // Gratitude. Always. For breathtaking sunsets, for not having 5:45am wakeup calls every day, for The Mindy Project, for friends and laughter, for coffee, for the holiday season and the warm, fuzzy feelings that come with it, for family, for chefs who make us delicious food, for life.
