So much to the dismay of our credit cards, we decided to go gnarly and take our honeymoon in Fiji. And it was rad, of course (and actually, surprisingly cheap). While we were there I started typing up a journal, but then I got sick and lost interest in favor of sleeping and hanging out in the bathroom (maybe I’ll post it later). Here’s the condensed version: Continue reading

- I’ve known Bryan since preschool, where we were in a gang together. That is not a joke. I think we were called The Cobras and had customized camouflage t-shirts to back it up.

Staycation, guys! Ugh, that term is about as overused these days as “recessionista,” “tweet,” and “Glen Beck Is A Terrorist.” Okay, not that last one, but I’m trying my hardest.

The original plan was to lead off with an old person breakfast at the Carrow’s by our house, but that was of course trumped by laziness. Mastodon’s Leviathan was on the Subaru stereo. After barely (of course) making it to the ferry on time, we were off.
Not that I was having a particularly bad day… but still.
From Idolator: Dissecting “Superstition” (the song, not the mystical belief). Very interesting to me because of the following- A: I am a recording nerd & B: It’s one of my favorite songs.
From Videogum: Uniting Humanity And Squirreldom. Dare I say, my heart was warmed. I’ve only recently begun realizing my fascination with animals. Growing up with 900 yapping dogs, a bunch of messy horses and a nutso parrott kind of gave me a distaste and exasperatuion for most of the animal kingdom, but thanks to Lindsay at Videogum (and Box Cat, and Nyack The Otter [RIP- too sad to link], and Foxes On The Trampoline, and Lazy Cat, and Baby Hippo, and Crazy Mini-Horse… christ, do I ever digress), I basically have the youtube-viewing habits of an 11 year old girl.
