Help Haiti

I really have no words, so I'm just going to dive in. If you want to help, and you're not sure how, consider Craft Hope. You can donate or purchase item to/from their Craft Hope for Haiti Etsy shop. I just bought myself a cute little hand knit pouch. But the best part is that 100% of what I just paid for it (minus etsy fees) go to help Doctors Without Borders. Go look now!

Blogging is Not An Entirely Different Universe

You know what it is, though? Strange.

My new thing lately has been home decorating blogs. I have no idea how long it will be until Fiance and I are in a place where we can use much creativity, but I find it all very exciting.

So I'm doing the blog-hop thing. Look at this blog, click a link, discover new blog. And I'm looking a pictures of this woman's family. Oh hey, that guy looks familiar. Know why?


I met him on Tuesday. Today I discovered his mom's blog. So I know how many siblings he has. I know that he looks just like his dad. I know what his wife looks like. I feel like a total creeper.

So it's advice time. Should I mention it to him and try not to sound like a stalker or should I pretend I never saw it and risk blabbing something about his personal life that he's never told me (and then really sound like a stalker)?

I'm thinking I should avoid "Hey, you were a cute kid!" or "Haha, your mom said 'shit' on the internet."


P.S. I know for sure that it's the same guy because his name was there, and his name is not something that's particularly common. Plus, you know, the fact that I saw like 15 pictures of him.

"Would you like an extra shot [of espresso in my coffee] for Wired Wednesday? It's free."

Why the heck not? I don't turn down free stuff.

Except now I'm going to be awake until 2am. Which is no big deal until I need a nap tomorrow around 11 in the morning.

I Feel Like This

And it's only the second day of the semester.

(Life as a dog must be hard, huh?)

It's Probably A Trick of the Eyes

Carrot shavings...

Pasta cooking on the stove...

 You'd think there was some cooking going on in this apartment.

P.S. My college's "cooking 101" booklet explains how to make a sandwich. In case you were confused about which part goes in the middle.

Sad News

Last Wednesday, on December 30th, my Grandpa passed away. So...that's why I haven't been around. I'm happy that he's not in pain anymore (he's been sick for a long time) and that he's with Jesus, but it's been rough. After the viewing and the funeral, I spent time at Fiance's parents' house to recover a bit, so I forgot to post sooner. I start my spring semester on Monday, so I'm sure I'll have lots of fun stories to tell again soon.

I've missed you all!
