has what? one good song….possibly. can she sing live? last night in salt lake city? apparently cats have no power.
i’m sleeping at home for the first time since monday night. for the last couple of days, i’ve been living off of beto’s, deviled eggs, cheesecake, clam chowder, and arby’s. making the decision to spend the night at home was exciting - i was gonna get all the leftovers in the fridge from this week. lo and behold, i get home and our fridge is practically empty. not to...

this woman taught me how to make the perfect cheesecake. also, she’s the most sexy woman on the food network. giada, i pine for you. and your tomato sauce covered body.
emily, my love
my best friend left for college today at four in the morning. i’ve seen her almost every day this summer. i fear that my social life will be dead without her, but more importantly, that i won’t be able to function as a whole. i’ve gotten so used to being around her almost every waking moment, that it might be hard for me to be alone now. so, because she’s gone to the east...
tonight was the last true blood night as a trio. next week it will just be a duo. it’s actually depressing me, because my best friend leaves 4 am on tuesday morning. not to mention, there are only three more episodes left in the season. pictured above: hoyt and jessica. in conclusion: emily told me i need a guy just like hoyt. he’s the perfect boy for me. i mean, i’m fine just...
i wanted to drop kick her into a non-existent pond.– anonymous
i used to be an egg drop girl, but now i’m hot and sour.– ashley maetani
i just wanted to briefly share the two pictures i took this afternoon. the camera on my phone has a panoramic feature that i am absolutely in love with right now. i sat around photographing for about two hours. pictured above: the ghosts of nick and abby’s fine behind.
there was this time in my life when i resented every aspect of my brother. i think i did it because i was completely jealous of him. but now, our relationship is better than ever. i truly missed him when he was gone for the first month and a half of summer. him and i spend quality time together now - from watching big brother season 11 to playing farmville on facebook. i honestly don’t...
sometimes when i’m driving, i completely space out. and when i do, my eyes seem to glaze over, and i don’t really have any recollection of what i’ve just passed. it’s almost like i’m a automated driver, my limbs doing the work without the conscious thought. i’m still in control, but don’t really feel like it. maybe this is what the autopilot system in a...
i don’t have time to write about everything that happened this weekend. hence, this list: - drove to logan on friday night - drove back early saturday morning - spent the night at my zero date’s dorm room - drove up to logan again on sunday morning - slept in the car during someone’s wedding - drove back from logan - did victoria’s radio show on utahfm.org - went...
because of my horrible short term memory, i don’t quite know how to put this in context. but my best friend told me that my voice is very melodic. and also that she could listen to me speak for hours and hours. honestly, i have no recollection of how this was brought up in conversation. but i stood back and really thought about the fact that she could notice these subtle nuances and be...
the title was a slight play on words. at work today, i was relieved when i took my lunch break. valynne, ashley, kristie, and i went to a pho restaurant that is quite far away - pho cali. it’s somewhere on the west side of utah in an area i don’t know very well. i’d once been to a pho place called pho saigon - which was also in this part of town. the pho from both places is to...
wait are we still talking about kathy bates’ poon– nathaniel hinckley
the world is falling
i’ve been listening to mirah yom tov zeitlyn for about five years. but up until now, i have never loved her more. every time i listen to her, it seems that my love for her grows exponentially. i think she is a truly amazing, dedicated, talented, and devoted musician and artist. her ability to fabricate an image with her lyrics is unmistakably concise. the listener has fantastical thoughts...
today, my asian friend informed me that her mom’s japanese friend went to a battered women’s support group because she thought it was a buttered women’s support group. she apparently pictured all these naked women running around, dripping in butter. she proceeded to laugh at everything that was said in this support group, thinking it had some underlying relation to women,...
to date, true blood is the only television show i watch; and it’s because i watch it every sunday night with my two best friends. though these aren’t the two main characters, i love this picture because you can tell that this man isn’t the “loving” christian he’s made out to be. there is an almost maniacal glint in his eyes. and that smile is almost as creepy...
it’s not easy having a good time. even smiling makes my face ache.– dr. frank-n-furter
salt lake pretty
i found this beautiful picture of the temple in downtown salt lake. i can’t believe i will be moving to a house five minutes away from this beautiful building. the picture’s tilt shift - something i want to learn to do - not that it’s that hard to do.
