So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

The so-called "Swiss Cheese Terrain" on Mars. A weird place, that Mars....

I love summer. I love the heat, I love the long days, I love the tall, uncut grass, (I also love the freshly mown grass), I love the flowers, I love the thunderstorms, I love the flip-flops, I love the lazy afternoons, I love the not-having-a-jacket...

It's summertime, and the livin's easy.

It's always been "cool" to say that summer is not your favorite season. Usually you'd pick fall for the leaves or spring for the flowers, and if you're especially "hip" and "alternative" you'd say your favorite season is winter. Yep, it depends on where you live. Fall in Colorado was always my favorite because the weather is perfect and the rays of the sun slant down through the trees onto the soccer field in the late afternoon. In SoCal there weren't really any seasons except that the summer was a bit too hot to live without air conditioning. But summer in Rhode Island is full of green leaves, beaches, blue skies, the smell of barbeque. The humidity wraps you up in its arms and bids you take a swim in the sea.

If if there was no winter in Rhode Island, I could live here forever.

SUMMER SUMMER SUMMER SUMMER SUMMER SUMMER! I wish it would never end! I'm already dreading winter! SUMMER! Stay here forever!!!! I love you!!

A Momentous Occasion
Sunday. 5.30.10 10:57 am
Let it be written that at 10:30am, Sunday, May 30th, 2010, at 26 years of age, Zanzibar H. Tanzania found her first GREY HAIR. Well. It was more "translucent" or "clear" than it was grey. But still.


In the manner of MoDS,

That is all.

A couple of weeks ago around Easter, my roommate's boyfriend hid chocolate eggs all over our apartment while we were gone. It was very cute and romantic, and my roommate was delighted to keep discovering new eggs in the strangest places. Inside our oven mitts, inside the vegetable-drawer in the fridge, above the doors, under cups, in the lamp (we luckily discovered that one before it melted all over the light bulb). When she found them she usually just put them back so that she could rediscover them again and again over time. Every corner of the apartment reminded us of him. Amusingly, some of the eggs were in places that she would obviously never look--- after all, my roommate very seldom has use for oven mitts and doesn't like vegetables.

My roommate and her boyfriend subsequently broke up.

She went around and retrieved all the eggs from every corner of our apartment and threw them away.

Today I ran out of pasta and I was rooting through my food cupboards to find another box. I found a half-empty one way at the back and poured out the pasta.

Two chocolate eggs were at the bottom.

I am glad my roommate doesn't eat spaghetti.

Your Faith Has Healed Ye

"Hi Fox Toyota, I have a question maybe you can help me with... my car won't turn on, as in, my key won't turn in the ignition."

"Is your steering wheel locked?"

"Well, yeah, see that's the thing, it's as if my steering wheel were locked, only it happens all the time, and not even when the wheel is turned too far or I'm parked on a hill, and if I work at it for a while sometimes I can get the key to turn, but it gets harder and harder every time and now I can't make it turn at all, no matter what I do."

"Your car isn't broken then. We can't do anything to fix it, it isn't broken."

"But it won't start!"

"That's all perfectly normal."

"It is?"

"Yep. Well have a nice day, ma'am." (click)

to my roommate, sarcastically
"Well I guess my car's fixed."


"Yep, the Fox Toyota guy fixed it over the phone."

I have a date.
Wednesday. 5.5.10 7:29 pm
As if on cue,

I was asked on a date:

So I feel a little junior high asking you out over Facebook, but I really enjoyed chatting with you the other night. I'm thinking of going to see Hubble 3D at the Aquarium in Boston this weekend and was curious if you'd like to come. I'd be up for any of the shows at 1pm or 3pm Saturday or Sunday. Let me know if you're interested.

Should I go???
