jeggings: not appalling, after all.

I'm really surprised/impressed by how far leggings have come in the past couple of years. they have gone from being awkward blue and terribly stitched (in short, looking nothing like jeans and everything like leggings that are trying to be jeans), to something that actually resembles a comfortable pair of jeans.

i finally bought my first pair of jeggings this weekend. well, two pairs. and i love them. they're comfortable and they look great. mad props, bullhead. i'm excited about this.

retail therapy/pretty things.

don't you love when you go to the mall for something specific, end up spending way too much money, and arrive home only to realize that you didn't even get what you went for?


what does one wear to a hawaiian-themed party? all of my clothes are black, white, gray, and navy. this is the predicament i found myself in at the mall. i just don't wear colors. so, i guess i inadvertently avoided the issue altogether.

BUT, exciting: many stores are placing that beloved sign outside their doors. yes, the one that reads, "additional 50% off sale items." that sign is definitely the reason i spent more than i should have. but i got some incredible deals, which makes it easy to justify.

also, i noticed a lot of the summer stuff that is being clearanced out is made up of muted and pseudo-neutral colors, making it easy to transition these pieces from summer to fall. score.

yours truly,

the little things.

i've developed an incurable addiction to pandora comedy (a somewhat recent addition to the wonder that is pandora). favorite stations include louis ck & mitch patel. love. if you don't know who they are, i strongly suggest you look them up. (if you like vulgar, sexual, blue humor, that is.)

i listen to the louis ck station for a minimum of an hour a day, and, at that rate, hearing the same jokes over and over again is inevitable. (i should point out that they never stop being funny.) BUT, occasionally, i hear something new. and the other day, i heard this:

this obviously isn't exactly the audio that is used on pandora, but it's essentially the same - you get the gist.

who knew that louis ck could smack me in the face?

i found myself taking a step back and really thinking about all the little things i completely take for granted. i was on a plane last weekend that got stalled on the runway for 30 minutes. everyone around me was throwing a fit, completely irate at the idea of arriving to their destination a mere 30 minutes later than planned. i found myself getting annoyed with being on the plane for longer than necessary, but then i remembered louis ck. i got comfortable, put on some music, and remembered how amazing it is that flying is even an option.

it feels good not to be angry.

yours truly,

blog, remember?

blogging was something i used to do on a daily basis. i think i'll start again. i will most likely embrace the tendencies of ee cummings and avoid capital letters; i dislike them. also, photo of the day? yessir.

yours truly,
