Friday Flotsam



Do you sing in your car?

Like, do you sing along at the top of your lungs to Sarah McLachlan or Led Zeppelin or Blink 182 or whatever?


Do you sing along at stop lights. Next to someone. Or do you stop singing all together because you’re afraid you’ll forget the lyrics under the pressure and the person next to you will KNOW.

I totally do. I cave. At first I’m all confident and like, “Ohhhh, I’ll just keep singing and rocking on, and that person next to me will never know I just sang ‘I wish that I had JESSIE’S SQUIIIIRREL.'”

But they know. I’m positive they know. And then I start panicking and sweating and it’s all over.

Felicity update!

You’re like SKIP.

I’m halfway through season 3 (spoilers!), and Felicity has just decided not to give Javier her egg. It was kind of a filler episode, I felt. Oh! So, Ben’s DAD (is that Jack Tripper!?) totally hit on Felicity. Basically tried to lick her face. I barfed.

Ben is going to Al-Anon meetings. Molly’s there, too, going through some ish with her addict boyfriend, so I PREDICT something might happen between them. I might be wrong. But aren’t things supposed to switch back to Noel at some point? It’s so weird, I LOVE FELICITY WITH BEN right now. It’s because his side wispies are back and my heart can’t deal. But I also feel like her time with Noel ain’t over.

But Noel is totally with Tyra Banks right now, which is so weird! I LIKE Tyra, don’t get me wrong. But her hair bugs in these episodes. It’s like, right at the roots – they go up out of her head before laying down again. Does that make sense? Right at the roots, this little upturn before laying flat.

Never mind.


starting spring seeds!

Oh, remind me again how you get armpit stains out of clothes! We talked about this on IG a long time ago, but I can’t remember. Is it baking soda + soap?

Baking soda + bleach + tears?

Chipmunk nectar + 2 honeysuckle stems + 3 grass clippings?

14 pencils shavings + 7 toe nails + agave – the past participle of wood glue?

I think that’s it.


Guess what! I bought a ticket to a floral arranging workshop. Can you believe I found one that fast? Eeeee! I can’t wait. We’re going to make an enormous centerpiece arrangement. I want mine to look like the giant red poppy field in the Wizard of Oz. I’mon’ CRAWL IN DAT.

(I don’t know what that means^^.)

Weekend plans?

IT’S GOING TO SNOW. Isn’t that so dumb? They’re saying 1-3 inches tomorrow. (I won’t say lame sauce because I like having human friends.) We’ve got some Arkansas pals coming up for a fun spring weekend, buuuuuut it looks like we’re going to be indoors staring at each others’ faces. Listening to one another breathe.

Oh! Maybe I’ll sing to them.

    Wait?! It's "backbirrd singing in the dead of sight"?? All this time I thought it was "dead of night" and now I find out that I was the total idiot busting the incorrect lyrics at the stoplight.

    I totally sing at stop lights and I don't care who looks at me!!!! Car karaoke on my way home from work is my favorite!! I'm so excited you are watching Felicity. I love that show. I watched when it originally aired and have the dvds to rewatch randomly. I'm allllll about Ben and Felicity. Noel annoyed me so much. Love Foley though.

    Have you ever watched The Americans? Best show ever! It comes on FX but I watch it on Amazon. I never watched Felicity but...Keri Russell! I thought you might want another show to obsess over. You're welcome.

    lit-rally dying laughing at the first comment... I am the queen of butchering song lyrics!! and I laughed my way through your post too. Thank you for that-after a stressful couple of weeks it just feels so lovely to smile and giggle out loud.

    overheard my son in that back seating singing Queen's "Another one bites the dust" but his lyrics where "everybody rides the bus". He was 5 so I guess that was his reality!
