1.) one of the 15-year-old girls i teach at church, kylee [who, incidentally, recently started a quite stellar blog] makes me laugh. last week we were talking about her new boyfriend and she called him "man candy." this conversation ensued:
me: why do you call him man candy?
k: because boyfriend sounds too weird.
me: how about "BF"?
k: no. i try to refrain from abbreviating words outside of texting.
i still laugh when i think about that. oh, kids these days... [and yes, i text her during the week to communicate. that's just how we roll i guess.]
2.) LAist did a cool story about the 70th birthday of union station, with amazing pictures. i love that place and admire it daily as i walk through; thought these images did a great job of capturing it. [apparently it's been in lots of movies but the only one i can think of off the top of my head is pearl harbor.]
here are a few of my favorite pictures from the story:
3.) we had quite a nice weekend. we cleaned the house, watched movies, made some cards, ran some errands. we FINALLY grocery shopped. but on saturday morning i had a mini-breakdown because we had a completely unstructured day. the only thing i HAD to do that day was show up at souplantation for dinner at 5 p.m. to meet our friends...so at 9 a.m. i freaked out, sat on the floor and told b we NEEDED to plan our day. i don't do well when i'm not planned out. b looked at me like i was nuts, told me it would be okay, and left to help some friends move a piano. i cried a little, got up and ran three miles and then felt better. maybe i am crazy.
4.) i wrote a guest post for gypsy feet, a random blog all about feet. my least favorite subject. so they humored me and told me to write about how much i despise feet :) check it out here.
