conversation with a jelly bean

suddenly out of nowhere whispers, 'pirates.'
me: 'ahhh where?'
points to closet
me: 'in the closet?'
'yes'
I whisper, 'pirates are scary'
whispers slowly, 'he loves you.'

I bought some solar lamps for my patio because I'm 45 years old, apparently.

Red Carpet Treatment

In New York I only took one picture because I was only in New York for one second.While in Philadelphia, I was so impressed with Anne's fortune collection that I imagined each one being set aside amidst years and years of cracking open normal fortunes. Maybe her future is in fact pretty bleak because, as you'll learn, shes like a magnet for these blunt, off topic cookies.We photographed them, LOLed and then walked down the street to get breakfast. Apparently lattes come with a fortune cookie and an ice tea comes with absolutely nothing.

So, Anne got yet another stunner.
How did it know?

AND THEN I EXPERIENCED MY FIRST EVER CELEBRITY ENCOUNTER(S)!!
While in New York I woke up thinking that I saw Tina Fey, but actually I just fell asleep watching SNL in the hotel. So that doesn't really count.

But then. Right when I least expected to see 12 celebrities all together. it happened.

At the airport I walked up to my gate two hours early and spastically asked if I was in the right spot. The attendant said yes and that he would actually try to get me on the flight leaving immediately because Chicago had bad weather and my flight was delayed. I said yayyyy and then sat down and watched him. I noticed a woman in pumps that had clearly just gotten out of a salon. She was zipping up one of her kids backpacks and I seriously thought, 'See, why cant you be more like that woman? She not only has all her shit together, but she also has all her kids shit together and shes walking on little sticks. She's not afraid of the airport or the airplane and neither are any of her kids.' Then I watched the man at the desk some more. I looked back to the family getting ready to board the plane and one girl caught my eye. She looked just like one of the kids on Jon and Kate Plus Eight, but surely wasn't going to be surrounded by 6 identical korean siblings.
BUT THEN I LOOKED AND SHE TOTALLY WAS. Where's Kate?! I frantically looked through the group and recognized all the babysitters/body guards from the tabloids. I finally realized that she was of course the woman in spiked heals with the bleach blonde straightened hair that was zipping up the backpacks!
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
I didn't get to be on their flight, which was an even bigger disappointment than having to wait four hours to board my own plane to chicago. no big deal.
On the bright side, if I had not been such a basket-case about the airport I would not have arrived 2 hours early and I would not have seen the celebrities!
(wasn't kidding about the red carpet)

have you solved all your rubiks cubes?
looking for a new puzzle?
just put your favorite necklace in a suitcase
take it out 4 days later and cancel all your plans for the week
because you'll just be untangling that necklace

Below are my thoughts on the airplane

My new commute involves walking through a mcdonalds parking lot on my way to and from work, which makes it hard not to buy mcdonalds on my way to and from work
