Hopping into my time machine to catch up with some posts from the weekend! FunkyPlaid and I were together on Christmas Day for the first time in too long, and it was wonderful. via Instagram http://ift.tt/2hiiacS
FunkyPlaid and I are going on all the dates before he leaves. Tonight we had a late dinner at Kennedy School. In other news, I still can’t take a level photograph. Writing from: my study in Portland, Oregon. Listening to: the soothing soundtrack of AbyssRium.
FunkyPlaid and I got to see some Christmas decorations together after all. Writing from: my study in Portland, Oregon. Listening to: Kate McKinnon’s cover of “Hallelujah” on SNL.
FunkyPlaid and I are facing another holiday season apart, due to store business, so we took advantage of our waning time together and explored the city a little tonight. In our wanderings we stumbled across a terrific shop called Flutter and met its resident cat, King. Portland is long on whimsical charm, and for that I loveContinue reading “Day 318 of Project 365: Feline royalty.”
I wanted to commemorate the 300-day mark of this project with a special photo. It’s been wonderful having FunkyPlaid back home this week, and I am dreading having to say goodbye again so soon. My heart was especially heavy today until I read this piece about Patton Oswalt losing his wife. Then I felt like a big jerk for sighingContinue reading “Day 300 of Project 365: Iron and lace.”
Today’s smile started when I picked FunkyPlaid up from the airport this morning and it hasn’t been far from my face since. FunkyPlaid even managed to decorate a little for Halloween! I’m so glad he’s home. Work and exhaustion are solid distractions from my loneliness, but life is so much better when he’s around. WritingContinue reading “Day 295 of Project 365: Today’s smile.”
Remember when Zen kept waking me up at ridiculous hours with her yowling? FunkyPlaid comes home, and she stops. Me too, kid. Me too. Writing from: my quiet study. Listening to: “Ceiling Gazing” by Mark Kozelek.
FunkyPlaid successfully defended his doctoral thesis today! I’ve thought about writing those words for as long as we’ve been on this path together, so by now I should have something momentous to say to mark the occasion. As a younger person, I believed fervently in the ability to put any feeling or experience into words.Continue reading “Day 6 of Project 365: Defended.”
The boys are best buds. gratitude: seeing this when I walk into a room · knocking things I will never, ever have to do again off my to-do list · falling for Hipstamatic all over again
After 299 emails, 5.09 GB of movies, weeks of very little sleep, and so much iMovie-bashing, I present my birthday gift for FunkyPlaid, a lip dub of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’”. Thanks so much to everyone who participated, who lent moral support, who tolerated my dithering over the choice of song, and especially to theContinue reading “Don’t stop believin’, a lip dub for FunkyPlaid.”
