Hello there, beautiful. My Weekly Happiness post is coming a day early this week, because I have a post scheduled for tomorrow that is more time-sensitive. Stay tuned for celebratory silliness in less than twenty-four hours time!
This second week of 2015 has been a lot more low-key than recent times. I’ve actually been really emotional/hormonal lately, which has made me want to do a lot of nothing! It’s kind of hard to party hard when you’re busy crying about the fact that I can’t remember what Brie cheese tastes like or how long I have to wait till Leap Year comes around. It hasn’t been a bad time all week, though!
Bug reading up on current events
Yesterday, I participated in the DC version of the No Pants Subway Ride (which I will be posting about in much more detail very soon). Afterwards, we went to Chevy’s and I ordered $20 worth of Mexican food, including that delicious corn mash stuff they have. On my way back from the bathroom, which had a sign on it that said “We apologize in advance for the smell in this bathroom”, I passed a table of older people. One of the men said “…and that’s another episode of South Park”, which made me smile because I really liked the idea that he was just sitting there hashing out full episodes of South Park over tortillas and salsa.
Extra Sparkle: my favorite lady friends sitting around my bedroom, working on their respective crafts while watching stand up comedy getting a message from a local reporter about street art the promise of bottomless salad and breadsticks wearing sloth socks people getting and liking my New Year’s cards watching Pippi Longstocking movies watching people eat garlic bread flavored chips for the first time a group of PMSing girls who constantly rotate between cuddling and screaming at each other new sheets from JCPenney receiving my first mail art submissions girl talk at Sara’s getting season three of Girls on DVD and binge-watching the entire thing in one day love texts working on a new fashion-based project parking meters that cost only 20 cents for an hour the Mike Tyson ad on the Metro seeing men in suit jackets and boxers, carrying a suitcase Big Fish working at my new desk when Bug comes in and lays on top of my legs shaving my legs twice in a week, a winter miracle
my favorite compliment of 2015 (so far)
Another huge thing that happened was that, without me knowing, NPR advertised my mail social on the radio! I was super excited about it, and started clapping and screaming! The actual mail social itself went well. Thanks to everyone who came out! Pictures on that to come soon, as well.
What’s on your happiness list this week, darling?
