It's Sunday night... here's something to fill your gaping void:

Mmmm... void.

"...a video or whatever you'd like."

May I tell you a little about R's dad's old friend, Bob, who lives in Alaska?

He wears Terry Richardson glasses, but sincerely.
His closet (I'd imagine) consists of an array of plaid snappy button western shirts, filled with pocket protectors, but sincerely.

His hair looks like a tuft of white wispy cotton candy.
He pushes up his glasses with his finger, fork in hand, while intently telling you a tale.

He's an archaeologist who loves genealogy; gave R lots of rocks, gems, and dinosaur bits as a kid.
His 95 year old mother, Blanche, is is best friend.

He never forgets a birthday nor anniversary.
He still insists on sending $20 checks, which we feel bad about cashing, but is like, the cutest thing ever, right?

Here's my favorite part of the card that accompanied this year's check. It makes my heart explode.

Best Idea or Worst Idea?

A permanent tattoo of a Chanel temporary tattoo.

Things that I will not soon forget:
  • The kindness and generosity you've shown me
  • The Heaven's Gate suicide; was eating Spaghetti O's in my friend Gina's kitchen
  • The good times we've had

Eye candy

Before I was called into get 10 glaucoma puffs shot into each eye because I kept flinching... 

Lenscrafter sales dudie who looked like the weird British Office/Extras Guy: What kind of glasses are you looking for?
Me: I don't know if I need glasses yet.

After I was called into get 10 glaucoma puffs shot into each eye because I kept flinching...

Lenscrafter sales dudie who looked like the weird British Office/Extras Guy:  So, do you need glasses?
Me: Dr. said they're optional.
Lenscrafter sales dudie who looked like the weird British Office/Extras Guy: Well, do you OPT to get them?

Garsh Nabbit! I received the most thoughtful little treats in the mail the other day. Gaaaaaaaaaaaahgeous MEH cards from Ms. Richele. And you know, I love a good "meh."

Mmmm... so personal and warm and fuzzy. I feel so fortunate.

Get yours now before they all vanish into thin air.

Things I Didn't Know/Never Thought About: Brussels Sprouts Edition
  1. Neanderthals likely didn't like them
  2. Plural on the Brussels part-- I had always said "Brussel sprouts" (It reminds me of how I used to misappropriate the "s" by saying "Look likes" instead of "Looks like"-- Also, what a cruel cruel vegetable for someone with a lisp! "Brutthelthh Thprouthh"...but I digress)
  3. They grow on a motherfucking crazy stalk 
  4. If you coat them in olive oil, freshly grated pepper, and enough salt to preserve a corpse, and forget that they are roasting in the oven, the outside layers taste a lot like potato chips!
