Over It

April 27, 2012

It’s Friday and I’ve painted my fingernails orange. That can only mean one thing: It’s time for a list.

1. I have an animal picture. But it is not a baby animal, so there. Instead, it is a full-grown walrus who got a birthday cake made of fish. He blushed.

2. I am going down to the Springs today to meet with my mentor Kelsey. She runs Hummingbird Unlimited, and they do great events — you should check them out. I’m also going to see the Callihans and it’s been so, so long! I will get to see my sweet boys. These ones:

And this one:

3. It has been a long week. I’ve written so many papers, and spent so many hours in that sauna of a student center. But I had a good phone conversation last night, and now it’s Friday! Let’s take a little break, OK?

4. Penny is learning to be a hipster on Happy Endings. Fro-yo? Over it. Other stuff? Over it.

5. Ron F. Swanson has something he’d like to say.

6. I just started reading Lauren Winner’s new book Still. Has anyone read it yet? What do you think? It’s basically about a crisis of faith she had and her journey through it. I’m just starting it, but I’m already hooked because she’s such a good writer. “I pray, I don’t pray. I go to church; I keep going back to church. There is boredom here, and loneliness; there are also Eucharists and angels. God darts by; sometimes I notice.” Sometimes I notice.

7. OK, I accidentally have one more animal picture, but you guys: This blind dog has his own seeing-eye dog. They are very best friends.

All right, that’s it. I’m leaving. Have a great weekend, friends!

  1. Amazing book. I’m not over it.

  2. Ok, the blind dog thing got me. I’m a sucker for dogs.

    That video clip is funny. Also, Johnny is adorable, and it looks like he’s judging you a little bit for posting so many pictures of animals.

    Jonny generally disapproves of animal pics.

    All these animals are making me cry. Stop it.

    Also, you are cat-tastic! Joves.
