Hey there, hot stuff! How’s your week going? I hope it’s great. Today is Vinyl Records Day. Maybe you could celebrate by making some crafts out of recycled vinyl? Or just bust out those LPs to actually listen to.
Right now I’m on a bus headed to New York City! I’m going to hang out there for a few days with my friends Ashley and Munchel. We’re all really excited, and I can’t wait to share our adventures with you when I get back. I know I probably won’t have beautiful views out of my bus window on 95 North like this carnival I saw last Tuesday, but that’s why I’m bringing a bunch of mail to keep me occupied!
One of the fun things I did this week was go to Baltimore’s Playground, a monthly event in Charm City in the warmer months. As always, there were hula hoops, parachutes, and jump ropes. Some girls brought their double dutch game hard, and I got to meet the operator of Discover Charm City. It’s a fun time, and next month Jason is going to be out of town, so I’m going to be running it for him. Come party in Fells Point on September 12th!
Extra Sparkle: the feelings of freshly shaven legs my disposable camera still being on the bench when I came back for it a beautiful view of a cornfield in Boring, MD mailing a postcard from Boring booking the trip to New York Richard singing me our song to me in the car admitting the real reason I wear glitter on my eyes every day the idea that you should be wearing a different hat for different activities (eating, business, sex, etc.) shouting “SURPRISE!” at Aline’s going away party sexy spoon exercises at burlesque class Sara carrying around half a piece of pie inside a napkin in her palm new Farmers Market stamps seeing a bunch of animals at the park including a beaver I named Al feet in the bay, sun on my skin, arms wrapped around me drinks at WharfRat drinking moonshine in between my boyfriend and my best friend people watching kids in costume at Otakon visiting a sunflower field, even though the flowers were dead having to make up a new word for my emotions lately: “hapstatic” (a combination of happy and ecstatic) April getting out of her car at a stop light as she was following me to throw confetti in my window days out driving by myself Matthew texting me that he likes how I don’t care about alienating myself from everyone around me a gift of glitter body spray from April celebrating World Cat Day by reading to Bug seeing how these ducks know how to play in the park
