CyClone Milk is the perfect way to start your day.

My friend Liz just showed me this. I assume it's a hoax.

While I'm here, here's something else kind of odd. I'm a big fan of Owen and Mzee (and really any inter-species friendship story), but I think it's weird that they think Mzee has a hippo face on his butt.

Stupid free brownies

One isn't enough, and 5 is too many. There's just no way to win.

Location, Location, Location

Two Part Post-

Part I: a haiku

On Oatmeal

In bowl so yummy
A glob falls on work report
Suddenly so gross

I had oatmeal today, and it made me think about how location can be important to perceived worth. Something might be part of a delicious breakfast, and a mere two inches away become slimy garbage that stains your papers right before a meeting.

Part II: departures and arrivals

I'm in the denouement of my time here in NYC, and I'm starting to feel more poetic about everything. I've decided to start filming and posting all my trip departures and arrivals. Cheesy I know, but whatever, I like the way it looks. I wish I'd started earlier because I would have a pretty good collection. For now, a trip often travelled over the past few years:

Here's me leaving western Mass.

And here's me coming to NYC (I exercised creative use of the zoom so get excited.)

Here's one more of coming to NYC just for kicks.

Being a grown-up is fun

This weekend I went and visited my nephews (I have two now!). They're like new pets that I don't have to clean up after. Actually, I guess they're more like new babies that I don't have to clean up after. Well, really, they ARE babies that I don't have to clean up after.

Anyway, that was a good time. Then I came home and gave my fridge a much needed cleaning. I found my ipod shuffle, a long-lost hair barrette, and something that I might have found beautiful had I found it growing at the bottom of the ocean. Unfortunately, it was instead located in one of my favorite pieces of tupperware (REAL tupperware, not reused take-out containers), which I had to sacrifice because I was too scared to clean 'it' out.

Lesson learned.
