wardrobe consultation

my niece [who is almost four] called me at work the other day and we had the following dialogue.

o: um...jojo. you're wearing the shoes i want to wear?
j: um...noodle. i'm wearing the pink shoes with the sparkly bow. what shoes are you looking for?
o: the black pointy ones...
j: with the bow?
o: [scuffles, hands phone to my mom]
[o: i don't know. you tell her!]
m: if there was ever any doubt that this child is yours...
j: i think those shoes are next to the hamper.
m: she's settled on the polka-dot ones for now.

life does not get any better than this, folks.

...why won't my planner/coffee mug fit into my purse?
oh. it must be that MOLDY BANANA taking up all the space.

i'm officially that crazy woman who carries rotten fruit around with her.

brain tracks

so, just some insight into how my brain works.

i was driving into work this morning and 'the world has turned (and left me here)' by weezer came on the radio [this was preceded by mika's 'lollipop' and 'falling slowly' from once, which just won the oscar for best song, which made me ridiculously happy. it also made me cry in the car this morning. but, shut up.] so, i'm listening to the weezer and this is what my brain did, 'i like this song. i should listen to more weezer. whatever happened to my blue album? oh, right. i let ______ borrow it. and i never got it back when we broke up. annoying. i got stuck with about five collegiate a cappella albums, and he ended up with my weezer album. a cappella. percussion. melissa and i were definitely doing some body percussion at monty's this weekend, in time to some random song being played on the jukebox. some guy gave us funny looks and clearly thought we were having seizures. monty's. we never heard the songs we picked from the jukebox on saturday. i'm pretty sure one of them was by weezer. i wish i had that blue album. jackass. boys are dumb. where is my boys are dumb t-shirt? i need to do laundry. i miss the palm trees.' the end.

my brain is one giant 'choose your own adventure' story.

Sunshine and Rainbows

Pictures of our trip south are sufficiently uploaded and tagged.
See that FLICKR link to the left there? Click on that bad boy.
As easy as FLICKR thinks it is to use, I'm still unsure as to whether or not the photos are in the proper order. If you view it as a slideshow, they should be. In any case, the shots of the plane should be at the end. So work backwards if need be.

Was a good trip overall, one I hope to make in reverse in approximately a year.

a detailed account of our trip to the sunshine state is on its way.
until then, i sum up the trip in one photo.
[note: the suspicious nature of the facial expression is in direct proportion to the absurdity of the hairstyle.]
