buzz away

Tuesday February 28, 2006


I made the perfect foam this morning.

And then took a photo of it.

I heat up the milk and pour it into this hilarious mug that has a battery powered little motorized whipping thing at the bottom. I tilt the mug and hit the button and buzz away!

It actually works; it makes me laugh every time.

Check out that foam!

really really

I really really really miss my family and friends in Minnesota. I haven’t been home it what feels like forever and I really really really miss everyone and I think about them constantly.

I proclaim to all who know me from Kato or St. Paul or anywhere else please know that I would love for you to visit me…it is an open invitation from me to you…whenever you feel that a short drive south would fit into your schedule just give me a call and I will make delicious pastas and chocolate cakes for us to eat.

You will not regret it.

chit chat

Monday February 20, 2006

I want to start an online card shop.

Which I want to call Chit Chat Cards.

Jake gave me www.chitchatcards.com as a present.

This is the first step.

My next move is a visit to egg press in March.

When I start to think about my business idea I get really really excited…but a little nervous.

Sorta how I felt when I auditioned for Survivor.

my pits

Friday February 17, 2006

I stopped wearing deodorant a few years ago.

I seemed to always forget to put it on and then freak out when I remembered.

So I just stopped.

Yesterday was the first day in a long time that I thought, “Maybe I should start wearing it again.”

My pits smelled.

I was afraid to use my arms to gesture.

Small wiffs of myself floated around me whenever I released my arms.

Growing up I remember my first deodorant that my Mom got me.

It was called MUMS and it was a paste.

I did not want to wear it back then either.

usually pretty

Tuesday February 14, 2006

Valentines are still in my closet along with the stamps Jake picked up for me the other day.

I am usually pretty good about getting them sent out in time.

Not this year.

Instead I will do a Valentine post.

This is my new favorite photograph.

Random, I know.
