I got some new shirts in the mail from Threadless. I seriously love their shirts so much. There’s something for everybody. Well, everybody who likes t-shirts anyway. This one is a skateboarding dog drinking gin with a straw, of course.
I also re-ordered this one … because I accidentally washed my last one with my red tights…oops! AND I got this other shirt too, here’s the design, I think they’re sold out of the shirts. Anyway in normal light it says “Today is the day.” And then in glow-in-the-dark invisible-in-the-light letters it says “Tonight is the night.” And the funny thing is I didn’t even know about the glowing bits until I wore it to bed. hahaha best surprise ever. Although surprise glowing things in my bed have a way of freaking me out, if you know what I mean.
Being a fairly conscious eater, even though I am not a vegan I definitely know and understand the principles behind not eating dairy. Which means a lot of the time I have trouble with yogurt, sour cream, etc. It really grosses me out. So that said, I found this Amande brand cultured almond … food … in the yogurt section of my local grocery store. It’s dairy free and seriously tastes like yogurt but BETTER. The coconut flavor is amazing. I’ve also had blueberry and cherry. All delicious and all vegan and guilt-free.
I tried so hard to get a cute picture of Tank and I hanging out in the bedroom today and this is the best I could get. I love hanging out with that guy. He’s so sweet. Except when he gets in his stubborn dog mode, then he’s infuriating to take on a walk. Some yelling may or may not have happened today on our walk in the trees because of this. Ahem.
The library is directly beside my gym. I went the other day after work to hit a stationary bike for a bit and thought “Hey, I’ll just stop by the library and see if they have The Other Boleyn Girl in.” So I wandered over to the fiction section and fifteen minutes later I staggered out of there with this armload. I can never just check out one book.
A few nights ago, in the dead of night, Tank started barking ferociously. He hardly ever barks like that unless there’s fireworks going off or a deer just out of reach of his lead. I woke up and kind of yelled at him to go lay down and then drifted back off because he’s probably justbarkingfornoreasonzzzzzzz …WAIT A MINUTE IT COULD BE
AN INTRUDER A ROBBER AN ALIEN. No joke, my mind went straight there. And I was suddenly freaking out because my shirt was glowing and there was an alien in my living room and maybe one would come look at me while I was lying in bed.
Why does the brain do this? I ended up getting up and turning on the living room light just to make my brain shut up about aliens. Tank was lying on the couch with his eyes open, just blinking at me. I looked out the front window and saw nobody (or no THING), did a cursory glance around the rest of the house and went back to bed.
The next morning Ryan noticed that someone had been snooping through our storage area on our front porch. We don’t keep anything really special there, just our recycling and some old goalie equipment but still. Some old hobo was snooping right up at our front door. Note to self: never leave anything important outside no matter how pristine our little neighborhood seems in the day.
It’s all interesting yet none of it is important.
(And there, in a nutshell, is the internet.)
I wish my sketchbook looked like this.
Buff cat??!! haha

Specialty coffee: the pursuit of deliciousness. (mini documentary) (video) Not gonna lie, I don’t care how pretentious it seems, I would totally go to that shop where they do the “cupping” thing. It looks fantastic there.
