i finished the chocolate cake i baked last week. the entire thing. each crumb. i feel a little squishy and fluffy. but, on the bright side, my booty is looking delicious.

speaking of...the r kelly song "sex in the kitchen" is awesome....girl you in the me a meal.....

oh man. i love r kelly.

i went to Vashon Island on Saturday for the Lavender festival. I love how sleepy that place feels. and the air smells dreamy....for those of us with no allergies.

We bought peaches and cherries at the farmers market. Life is good.

here it is. a groove. slightly transformed.

i am in need of a good solid sunburn.

i know all about why this is a bad idea. i know it will age me. i know about skin cancer. i also know about lung cancer and that doesn't stop me from smoking an occasional cigarette.

there is just something fantastic about the first sunburn of the summer.

so far...i have had little time to do nothing on this vacation. i went to my child's swim lesson yesterday and watched babies flail around in the pool. it was nice. at least i can be one of those parents for a day or two.

jesus, if i have to hear any more about this girl that got disemboweled at the pool i am going to fucking kill something. I really don't want to hear about it.
i am sorry her intestines were sucked out of her butt, and i am glad she is telling people so it doesn't happen to them. it worked, ok! i will not sit on the drain anymore! even if i like the tickle....i won't do it.

Ratatouille was good. disturbing...but cute. it looked great...amazing what they can do with animation these days.

on the list for today....

go for walk
grocery store: milk, wine, crackers, hotdogs
get sunburn
bake blueberry scones
sit and ponder
water plants
clean kitchen

i wonder if this is what it is like for housewives.
i hate those people that say if they didn't work they would be bored. i never get bored. i hate working. i mean, i love my job...but really...i would rather be doing laundry and baking pies. and i don't mean that in the woman-in-home kind of way. i mean i prefer to task around and stare out the window and bake stuff. i find soul filling joy from these things.

summer should be this: wake up...drink coffee in back yard in undies. eat chocolate cake for breakfast (still in undies). take shower. put on dress and flipflops. go sit in sun. feel freckles form on cheeks. make out on beach towel. go home. have afternoon nap... wake up to sounds of lawnmowers, bumblebees and crows. watch sun streaks and breeze fill room. follow shadows across skin. get up. splash water on face. pick berries. bake pie. bbq hotdogs. sit in back yard and drink wine and listen to records. go to bed in undies and windows open.

more than meets the eye

transformers. do it. so much rad. i cheered with each awesome transformation from badass car/truck/helicopter/jet to super badass robot. it was everything i hoped. i will see it again. and again. i wish i had my own transformer. even if it was a dykish robot that turns into a subaru.

i had a dream last night that i was driving down the freeway in reverse....but i was going forward. my car was making this horrible sound...and it was smoking and clanking and lurching. i keep thinking about this and attempting to psychoanalyze myself. i am sure it means that i should stop eating tuna melts before bed.

i am about to have 5 days off. i will spend as much time as possible staring at nothing thinking about nothing. drool. my ideal vacation is a frontal lobe lobotomy. or at least a coma.

portland is the coolest city. hmm. scratch that. portland is lame. don't move there.
i am madly in love with brick buildings with fire escapes. i want to live in one. i want to have flower pots on my fire escape. and i want to sit on my fire escape and drink wine and look at the moon and ponder. and flee if i smell smoke.

i had a maid come clean my house. i am at a new level. it was fantastic and so worth it. i love paying people to do all the shit i hate and don't want to do. wow. i am such a grown up. am so fucking lazy.

summer is here. i wish i had a front porch.

here is what i am happy i have this summer:

1. a working lawnmower
2. a candle that smells like a morning on the beach in hawaii.
3. my back yard. it is a glowy magical place. now with paper lanterns and jasmine.
4. the recipe for macrinas fresh fruit muffins. dude. summer in muffin form. so delicious.
5. records. and a turntable (i need). and screens on my windows.
6. new camera. a device to capture moments. so simple. so huge.
7. twilight
8. this shea butter and cocoa butter lotion that makes me want to eat myself.
9. spicy kielbasa on the grill....on a bun with cream cheese....heaven...
10. Danger Brown.
