It was everything. Shops, restaurants, everything. Everything. (<–just kidding about saying everything 230 times in a row.) I think it was […]

I want to say I’m just like hot Mickey, minus all the drugs, booze, cigarettes and that overall deep-sadness-in-her-soul thing. But I truly relate to Gus […]

FRIDay. I mean FriDAY. I mean FRIDAY. I mean Friday. Do you ever think about when you touch produce at the store, how that particular fruit or vegetable becomes yours IMMEDIATELY? And I don’t mean like a pet, you weirdo. I mean like, you touched it. People saw your grimey grubs touch it, and there’s […]

Daffodils in the snow

FRIDAYEEEEEAAAAEEEEAAAAEEEEEAAAAAAY. Tell me about matcha tea. Is it a bunch of hocus pocus mumbo jumbo? Or does it REALLY WORK?  Is it like those nasty foot pad thingies from 10 years ago that suck out all of the toxins – omg do you remember those?! The first time I saw those I was so freaking […]
