Important life moments often involve quality pizza.

Today was not particularly auspicious and no pizza was consumed. Connection? Perhaps...

Dear Alauna,

I understand you are experiencing technical difficulties, but I am getting bored without you.

Please come back soon.

Love and DSLRs,

Spring, the Colorado edition

This is quite crooked. I decided not to fix it. Ever since we looked at the Marc Jacobs ads in CLCS 110 I decided that sometimes it is better to own the lack of perfectly level ground. More if you are Juergen Teller, revolutionary Marc Jacobs photographer, than me.

A magical afternoon

Thrift store chair.
Mothership Wit.
A drive into the hills.
Loads of photos.
Rock skipping on a lake.

On an unrelated note, March is not green here. It is sunny and bleak. I am not complaining, it just does not make for verdant Luganoeque photos (does anything?). All that to say, I vintaged the photos to make me feel better about the lack of color.

I live on the high plains.

Where, I am almost certain, the cows outnumber the humans.

I no longer cook in an ikea-stocked, elf-sized kitchen.

It is fun. Until I have to do the dishes.

Tower Road

Taken before driving home thorough a thunderstorm blizzard.

Since nothing interesting happened today,

I would like to continue discussing how Nora is a musical badass.

I like to call this one "I am Nora and I get to stand up before all you suckas!" Not because Nora would actually say that... out loud. I just think she deserves to embrace her superiority.

None of them are Nora, I just sitting near them. And I like how frantically they appear to be playing.

I miss Sil.

She is responsible for bringing sushi into my life and participated in a wide variety of food (and drink) related procrastinations over the years. Family dinners. Tipsy cookies. History exam beignets and iced coffee. Curry adventures. Celebrating freedom with prosecco in Parco Florida and whining about thesis writing with wine... Am I seriously getting this emotional over a photo of the Safeway sushi bar?!

Anyway, cheers to Sil, her upcoming marriage, and her enduring coolness.

I love these boots.

I find rather alarming in many ways.
But it is true.

There are some things I do not understand.

Per esempio: Why are there two cases of Arizona tea in the kitchen?

It was really hard for me to take it seriously. And to admit on paper that I was both white and a permanent resident. But in the interest of science, academia, and information integrity (or just the fear of governmental retribution), I was honest.

The Marketplace of Ideas

There really is something for everyone... I wonder if anyone else looked at this and found it as amusing as I did?

Beyonce had to ruin it for all of us.

I don't really have a problem with her, but try to think of something to say about this without that song playing over AND OVER in your mind.

"I would feel better if you had a gun"

My father repeats this, without fail, every time I discuss moving anywhere remotely urban (therefore inherently sinister). I don't think this is what he had in mind.

Pad Thai

Also on that note: there is a great void in my life without the asian market. That place was close, cheap, and they had everything.

Today in History

(because my today in this hemisphere failed to satisfy the precedent)

Spoleto, Umbria, Italy

The Valley of the Pigeons, Cappadocia, Turkey

I need my keys.

I really enjoy driving Quade's truck. While listening to Ani DiFranco. And basking in the incongruity.

Sometimes I like to think of new names for Leyna's dog.

It makes Leyna mad and confuses everyone else. Don't you think Ludlow is a great name for him?
