espresso cubano

Today was fantastic because it involved the last day of a job I didn't like, the getting of a new job, the realization that I will make my time before I go to Vancouver for that TESOL course, two free cases of beer and the winning of eleven hammocks.

A Great Battle

Today - forced to stay indoors because of the rain - I slayed the monster that is my closet. That's right. It's not in my closet, it is my closet. It's this gaping mouth with doors, swallowing bits and pieces of my life. I thought I would never see them again. This post is to honor those little heroes who survived life in the monster...

Four tiny pieces of glass that I found in the pocket of my coat after Erin and I totalled her parents' car that slippery December day.

More glass in the form of those little fishtank marbles from Art30.

Pages and pages of copied notes in Icelandic.

24 Lanterns.

The biggest, ugliest button you could ever imagine.

A letter from a mute girl. I have always hoped that the "special horse star girl" part was referring to me.

$2 from the Old Times.

Scorecard from an epic game of dice when we were camping in May. Guess who won.

An odd assortment of patches.

Abiel's song.

So you'll be glad to know I attacked the monster fearlessly - I was throwing things out with wild abandon. The orange garbage bag was bursting at the seams, or it would've been if it had any seams.

And now, the monster has been tamed. A fully functional and productive member of my room.

A noble use of a rainy day if I do say so myself.

This album cover really knocks me out.

Mmmm antioxidants

And now for a dog in a car!

Consider your growth officially stunted, Annika. I know, it is hard to resist the bold flavor and smooth taste...
