i saw the new austin powers movie with bryan yesterday. there was this asshole guy sitting near us who felt the need to grandstand throughout the whole movie. other than that, it was funny. you have to appreciate scatological humor to really enjoy it though.

we had thai last night. green papaya salad (spicy!), massaman chicken curry, squid pad thai, and whole fried fish with tamarind sauce.
bryan likes the fish heads. rolly poley fish heads.
eat 'em up.

my favorite things- things that make me happy...

long showers that last so long you lost track of the time, the whirring calm sound of the dishwasher, barnum's animal crackers, hot fluffy towels that smell fresh from the wash, crisp clean bedsheets, haircuts, pedicures, candlelit baths, watching nature happen, mango juice, looking in the mirror and liking what i see, the comfort of an old friend, talking to my mom on the phone, photos from my childhood, fresh pineapple, completing projects, chocolate, acknowledging rare silences, dancing without restraint, homemade lemonade through a straw, sassy belts, drawing on the condensation of car windows with my finger, smiling at strangers and having them smile back, getting packages in the mail, kisses, letting people know they are loved, sand inbetween my toes, the smell of gasoline at the gas station and the smell of sulfur from matches, homemade chocolate pudding, pretty smelling soaps, sliced apples, halloween, full christmas stockings, the smell of a bonfire, toasted marshmallows, crickets chirping, the sound of a lawnmower and the smell of freshly cut grass, the complexity and simplicity of the english language, the smell of magazine pages and crayola crayons, standing in the rain and not minding, planting seeds and watching them grow, chocolate vanilla twist soft ice-cream cones, watching the sun set or rise or both, unexpected free entertainment, polite chit-chat, when strangers hold the door for you, old ladies with style, corduroy pants in the winter, apple cider,
to be continued......

nurse lisa in full effect

bryan had another surgical procedure done yesterday. he's very sore today and has been resting, watching lots of movies. i made waffles for breakfast and put peanut butter and bananas on mine.

we're going to get some groceries and rent movies. we hope to try and hit the Colombian Day Festival tomorrow depending on how good bryan feels.

why must my inspiration always come at 2 in the morning?
i have never ever enjoyed the span of hours between 7a.m. and 12 p.m.
i can remember in gradeschool how my mother would have to literally drag me out of bed in the morning.
she'd come into my room and pull up the shades and tear the covers off of me and start singing a funny song and march around the room.
then my dad would come in and try to grab me and i'd hide under the covers and whine and beg for them to leave me alone.
i still hate mornings. hate hate hate them. i'm not a coffee person so that won't help.
i don't actually form coherent sentences until around noon.
my freshman year of college i won the floor award for 'scariest in the morning'.
i guess i don't hide it very well.
