christmas lights

dear blog,

last night when i got home, the drive way was occupied, so i had to go over to the cul-de-sac and flip a u-turn (i want  to say you-eee, but i technically do not know how to spell that correctly). as i turn in, i look over and my neighbors have their CHRISTMAS LIGHTS UP!!!!

for real?! september is NOT EVEN OVER!

don't get me wrong, i LOVE christmas and i LOVE christmas lights, and i am not one of those grinchy grinches who thinks that you can only listen to christmas music in december because i am definitely for a little early festivities,


i am certainly NOT ready for it to be december this year. christmas season this year means a whole lot of transitioning and major life changes. and its not that i'm not excited, or necessarily ready for my life to move on, but i just want to revel in the life that i have now. i want time to stop moving so fast! and i want christmas to take its dear sweet time.

the chances of that actually happening? slim to none.

oh well. que sera sera.

elbow macaroni

dear blog,

i have a very distinct memory of this one time in high school, this kid michael manos, who always wore a red and black flannel shirt over a t shirt, was only wearing one sleeve of his flannel shirt on his arm, and he left the other side hanging. i thought that this was very odd, and so i asked him "michael, why are you only wearing one of your sleeves?" and he said that "it hurts my elbow when i wear that sleeve."


i used to think that that was the WEIRDEST thing EVER...

until today. i am sitting here at work, and all i can think about is how i really want to take off my right sleeve because my elbow hurts.
