Super Scary Concert Experience.
OK. So last night, I went to the Owl City concert with Michelle. Not exactly one you would expect to find a super scary concert experience at, right? Wrong. Fail. Only I could, I think. So anyway, here’s the concise-ish version of what happened. 6:00 - We arrive and park, and proceed to stand in line to wait to get into the building for an hour. Let us set the scene: it is raining,...

So Lizzie and I are thinking for our trip (see previous post) that the Chunnel to Paris is going to be a little out of our budget…tickets are around 75+ pounds (that’s like 135 American dollars, if you assume the exchange rate is around 1.8) so I started poking around to see if there were any other cool day trip destinations for a lesser price tag. And….Voila! Brighton! Brighton...

Things we loved as children but forget to do once we grow up. 1. Believe in magic. (i.e, legitimately think you are witches, and try to master your powers with critical tools such as power beads bracelets and oaths sworn in blood. Similarly, legitimately think you are fairies, and give yourself fairy names and try hard to accomplish the ever-elusive flight). 2. Go steal all of the couch...

Trivial Perusals of the Shelves of my Brain.
These are some facts. 1. I love standing at the sink in a bathroom, washing my hands in the warm water. It’s all comfortable and warm, and you just kinda stand there, with your elbows resting on the counter, feeling the warmth wash over your arms. Sometimes you stare off into space because you just sorta lose yourself in all the comforting swish swish flow of the heat and the water sound...
