I think I was looking at some sort of feral child.

5. Vending machine magic: a pack of M&Ms had gotten stuck earlier, meaning that we got two for the price of one.

This marks the only good thing about our stay at the Plaza.

6. Tropical vignette. I get waaay too excited about the colored pencils placed at the table at an Ashland restaurant. Rand claims they are for children. I tell him to shut up.

  • I like him too, but you don’t see me kissing him all the time. Note, you don’t see me doing it all the time.

  • I like your caption for the statue. I saw a sign in southern california that said “Do you have defensable space?” I thought about that for a long time.

    Two things:

    1) Kiss him as much as you possibly can.

    2) I need a Philip in my life.

  • Why yes, I did run off to Ashland for a hot minute with the most handsome man in the world. What did you do today?
  • Thank you, Minneapolis, for reminding me that we can be pretty, even in the rain.
  • Stumbled upon these paranoid stone benches in MSP and they are speaking to my soul.
  • And to think, all this time I've been telling myself I pecan't.
  • Packing. Home in shambles. Accidently broke my own arm off of this wedding gift a dear friend made us. The symbolism is not lost on me.
  • This absurdly handsome man bounded across the stage in his "Nevertheless, She Persisted" t-shirt and talked about how he doesn't always adhere to gender norms, and that's okay. #soproud #inbound17 #latergram
  • Oh, okay, fine, I'll keep him. (Off to the Inbound conference, where I expect to trounce this fool with my speaking score.) #thisagain #randaldineselfie #selfiesonaplane
  • I sent @randderuiter to the housewares store by himself and this happened. I am the luckiest woman in the world. #christopherwalken #davidbowie #bowiepillow #walkenpillow
