On Really Good Books About Real People: Part One

@Kristen I have to get involved in this Muppets Christmas Carol discussion. My family is Obsessed, capital O, with this movie and when we were young would do a play on Christmas Eve that was, full title, A Christmas Carol, By Charles Dickens: Based on the Adaptation by the Muppets, By Jim Henson. We re-enacted it this year, all mid-twenties, all after a million drinks. Best Christmas Eve of them all. So yes, for your health, you must watch this movie this moment!

Heat wave! This is an island on the sun, oy oy!

On Sweet, Sweet Memories

Syrup! I just got back from Burlington, VT and we ate SO much maple syrup! Oatmeal pancakes! Also we stumbled on a farm having their sugaring party complete with an old man banjo band and families getting a pancake breakfast. So frigging cute.

On Friday Bargain Bin: What to Do With Your Allowance This Week

Ah! Chico's is where it's at. I'm currently wearing (but can't find a pic online) the supercutest earrings that my mom got me from Chico's. I love telling people where I got them. New fave jewelry store.

On Lent Is Capitalized

I grew up Catholic but went to public school and used to love getting ashes before school so everyone would pay attention to me and I could pretend to be really noble and stuff. Always backfired when people asked me what the ashes were actually for...I was charming.

On The Best Time I Was an Extra on Dawson's Creek

This is amazing. I have never been so jealous of anyone in my entire life. Also, "14 going on 9" is hilarious.
