it's close to midnight, and something evil's lurking in the dark.

Jackass 3D + Gators win + drinking games + BFF in town + dancing in costumes = best Halloween weekend ever. Chad and I were fire fighters and Stef and Duncan were pirates, how cute are we! Happy Halloweenie!!!

rain drops and creepy baby masks.

It's been rainy in Atlanta. I heart the rain. And with Halloween just days away, it was the perfect excuse to seek shelter in the costume store. So you wanna know what cheeseball costumes Chad and I will be rocking? I'll let you know when I post my party pics this weekend. Mmmuahahaha (that's my scary voice). But I will give you a couple hints:

It's not a creepy baby. Eew.

And it's not a shark attack victim. Ha!

Happy Halloweening!! xo

am i one of those hoarder people?

No. There are few things that I hoard, but if it's no more than three types of things then I consider it a collection or a hobby, or an interest or an infatuation. My favorite thing to hoard: books. I love shopping for them, I love buying them and I never get rid of them. Sometimes I read them twice and sometimes I like the way they look collecting dust on my bookshelf (yes, they are neatly displayed on shelves and not scattered all over the floor like a landfill of words). I even refuse to part with my old textbooks. And I love old dictionaries and unique thesauruses.

I always felt like the word thesaurus sounded like a dinosaur. A very well-versed dinosaur.

Anyway, whenever I feel sad or bored or like I've lost my creativity in a world of confusion, I grab the first book I see and flip to a random page and read whatever it says.

Tonight, the first thing I saw was Grapefruit, a book of instructional poetry by the delightfully strange, Yoko Ono.

My edition has an intro by John Lennon.

So I flip to a random page and read.

Then the world makes sense again.

six impossible things.

I'm in wonderland today. Despite my serious lack of creativity this past week, I feel like I'm in a dream. I don't mean I'm having a great day. It just doesn't feel real. Maybe at some point I'll wake up and realize why, but in celebration of my Alice-like state, I've found six impossible things before breakfast.

a magical scarf that makes me feel like i'm far, far away.

a cupcake that can tell time.

socks that inspire me to write.

a plantable journal that makes your ideas grow.

cars with mustaches. 

clocks that can turn back time.

Hope you're having a WONDERful Thursday. xo

on my way home.

there's just something
about sitting on a bus,
staring out the giant windows
at the repetitive trees
passing by,
listening to Simon
and Garfunkel.
it makes me feel
like i'm going somewhere.

my best friend's wedding.

My week long blogging absence was not laziness. I traveled to Baltimore, along with my closest family and friends, to see my bestest friend in the whole wide world get married. My long weekend turned into quite an oyster-eating, crab-leg-cracking, tearful-speech-giving, shot-taking, thriller-dancing, bad ass wedding adventure. Oh yea, and our two other besties got engaged. To each other. Holy three weddings in a row!!

more official "wedding" pictures will eventually come around. xo

my eight-eyed camera.

I mentioned last week that Chad surprised me with an Oktomat lomography camera; and today I FINALLY finished a roll to develop. I love love love the pictures and can't wait to play with it some more! I don't know what I like better, pictures of jumping or laughing. It's like catching eight individual moments that turn into a single memory. And what could be better than that? xo
