Show Me That Smile Again

Okay, feeling better today, at least about moving. I saw the house last night and it’s pretty adorable.

My closet is actually the staircase to the attic, which is the kind of cool room a kid on an 80’s sitcom would have and I love it. There is a sunroom for all my plants, a giant bathtub, new windows and a track nearby. Plus, the area is eerily nice for South City… Jason and I decided our neighborhood should always have a man with a top-hat and a cane dancing down the street. However, Nick and Dan told me my car will still be broken into at least once.


On Sunday, RØB had a party/concert in his garage. Squid Paynis and his band The Climax performed, as well as Sebastian Clarke & Normandie Wilson, who were so lovely. I sat and cuddled/talked to my crush the whole time. People were beer-bonging Stag all night and it was fun to watch. When folks walk away from the Squidbong it looks like they just got off of a ride at Six Flags – soaking wet and laughing and clapping.

RØB still lives next door to like 200 kids (the ones who hula hooped with us last year) and they kept wandering over to the party at the most inappropriate times. I shot a video of when they rolled up just after the boys finished filling up the Squidbong. Here’s Sebastian doing damage control:

(They spent the whole day breaking things and climbing on the roof and stuff, so I don’t think anything we did could have fazed them.)

I didn’t end up hanging out with Ian on Sunday, but I wasn’t surprised and I haven’t seen the dude in about four years; I can wait a little longer. I had fun with the person I was with. Normandie gave me her bathrobe for some reason. Awesome night.


On Monday, we all hung out on Justin’s roof again. The theme of the night was Special People, with episodes of Punky Brewster, Reading Rainbow, Degrassi and Saved By The Bell. The feature film was a childhood favorite of mine, The Boy Who Could Fly. Chilly night. More snuggling. Loft exploring. Happy dance.

Tuesday I watched some True Blood with Jen and iPhone Zombie Ron. Love them.

Found out people in my family are sick again. Multiple people. Possibly permanently. Back to my second home at the hospital. I’ve gotten to the point where it doesn’t even surprise me anymore. So, obviously not happy news but not as devastated as I should be. After the past year, it’s become the norm. I toldja something would put a damper on the happy parts… I can always feel this coming.

OH and this didn’t happen to me, but Janet and Courtney went to Twin Peaks Fest! They went to all the places from the show and hung out with the giant and Lucy. How awesome is that? They are TCP All-Stars. It’s a camping festival but you can stay in the Great Northern if you’re not a camping person. DONE. I’m so going next year.


Wednesday night was totally beautiful, at least – I went to the Botanical Gardens with Jen, Ron, Nick, Jessica and Dan. Ran into Kevin’s brother Dan and his girlfriend Monica.
We listened to music and wandered around parts of the garden that I’ve never seen before. I talked to Dan a lot; that made me happy.

Towards the end of the night we just lounged around. A bat took a liking to us and just circled overhead. I curled up on a quilt, either on my back to watch the bat and the moon, or on my tummy to text with my crush. The bat flew so low it almost kissed me and we all screamed. Lightning bugs were everywhere and a fat kid in tie-dye kept dancing past us while playing a flute.


Tonight a cute boy is making me nachos. (Smile) This weekend is full of good times, too. Oh, and by the time you read this, Shortcake will have probably reached 300,000 hits? Fun stuff, for the most part. Enough that it overshadows the bad. I’m looking forward to a lot of things.

So dudes, what color should I paint my room? This is what all my stuff looks like. I’m thinking about sticking with brown, though I always liked the blueish white from my old room, too. If a great color springs to mind, please let me know! I’m stumped.

    Hey, you guys were right behind us last week! Graham mentioned he stumbled upon you but didn’t say anything until we were in the car. I won’t be at the Garden next week, but text me to see if I’m around after that. We’re usually in the Chinese Garden.

    Pale orange or red…warm colors

  3. Yeah we saw Graham, and I guess i just assumed you weren’t there because you weren’t with him and he was with us for a least a half hour. Poo! Well, I will see you on Monday. Next week is the last one!!

    And thanks anonymous! Yeah, I am leaning towards a sandy brown so I don’t have to get rid of any red or blue stuff. There is a gorgeous deep red room in the house but he’s painting over it 😦

    Yeah dude I would say less than 1/2 of TPFers camped… there are multiple hotel options.

    Your room looks so much like mine used to look its kinda creepy. I mean I had the union jack, THAT RUG, and colorful tchochkes everywhere. Good luck deciding, I have a whole house of paint to decide on and it’s kind of overwhelming.
