Architecture Lust.

I’m feeling gross today, internet. Headachy and lightheaded and gross.

One of my favorite things to do when I’m feeling disgusting is imagine where I’ve live if I didn’t live in an apartment that looked like 1960 threw up on it, because I firmly believe that your surrounding impact how you feel about life, and the wallpaper surrounding me right now is making me feel like finding the original decorator and slapping them across the face.

Floral wallpaper? In every room? Really?

I mean, seriously with the wallpaper though.

I mean, seriously with the wallpaper though.

I want light and airy and clean space. Is that too First Worldy of me, internet?

Anyways, look at the pretty pictures:

Sick snuggles.

I’m sick again, internet. I think my immune system is on strike.

Lucky for me, mi Madre has me under couch arrest, and I’m watching cartoons and snuggling with mes pooches, because nothing screams maturity like running to your mother when you’re sick and watching cartoons.

Also lucky for me – my pups are snuggling pros.




My sickness ritual basically involves eating toasted bagels with cheese, watching cartoons (today’s movies of choice – From Up On Poppy Hill and Epic). I’ve also slugged a decent amount of orange juice.

What’s your sick ritual, internet?


3 apps to check out right now!

Hey internet. I feel like a bag of gross today. I don’t really have anything captivating or poignant to say. I went out with one of my best friends for lunch (Barney Stinson) and we got subs from Wegmans (pro tip – if you ever have the opportunity to get a sub from Wegmans, do it) and I just looked at mine as if I could absorb it into my body simply with the power of my gaze. I ran into Captain Apollo while we were there and he suggested pasta and I thought I was going to keel over and die right there. Mi Madre has been feeling pretty ill as of late as well with some sort of stomach virus, so I think I have whatever she’s got.

So I’m going to tell you about 3 random apps I’ve been digging lately, because this is my blog and I do what I want, and then I’m going to watch Battlestar Galactica with my puppy.

1. If you have a Facebook account (and if you say you don’t you’re either lying or you’re a Cylon agent) check out Bitstrips. It’s this awesome new app that lets you design cartoon characters and make comics featuring your friends and the results are hilariously amazing.

I'm throwing cats at Varenka. Tell me this isn't the best thing you've seen all day.

2. Timehop is a free download that links to your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etcetera and tells you what you were doing on the same day in past years. I am ADDICTED to Timehop. A year ago I posted this picture to Facebook (it’s from my thesis):

Two years ago I was on a plane headed to Puerto Rico.

Three years ago I was at the doctor’s.

Five years ago I was at a ski race.


3. If you have an iPhone and you don’t have emoji, I just can’t talk to you anymore. Varenka and I have entire conversations in emoticons. It is both impressive and a little sad, like a dog that manages to push all the Thanksgiving leftovers from the kitchen counter to the floor without breaking a dish. Yey, no broken shards of plate in my bare feet. Boo, no Thanksgiving sandwich.

Okay darlings. Imma go cuddle with Pepper now. Peace out.

This guy right here. Who's a good boyyyy??!??

Let’s talk about the snowpocolypse. I asked my parents at dinner last night what to write about today and Dad said write about Nemo and I was all like no one wants to read about the weather dad goshhh. Alas, I’m in a Barre training right now and its been a long, hard, nasal congested type of day, so lets talk Nemo.

As someone cleverer than I am put it this morning, I’d like to unfind Nemo. Just kidding. I could have come up with that.

I’m personally a huge fan of snowstorms. Ive already talked about my weirdness about big spaces, and I like how the outside looks smaller after a storm, if that makes any sense.

I do not like how everyone has suddenly lost the ability to drive, however.

This is not an interesting blog topic.
