Like these shoes I'm crushing on pretty hard:
And the fact that I keep seeing on twitter that it's National Coffee Day (honestly, what better thing to celebrate?). Even better is that thanks to my new schedule at work, I took the morning to finish grades at home and got to slowly sip my coffee at my dining room table. Being able to drink my coffee slowly (out of a mug and at my apartment) is one of my favorite luxuries.
Thursday means I get to hang out with these folks tonight:
My friend Matt and I fondly call Deena "pony." Doesn't she kinda look like one? Also, Matt does a killer DJ Pauly D impression. (And can we talk about the fact that Pauly has a DJ PAULY D sign hanging on his twin-sized bedframe?).
Anecdote: Once, when I was in college & working in the English Department, I walked out of the building to head across the quad to the Architecture School (which had a coffee bar on the first floor). A man was walking across the quad with a pony on a leash (yes). I stopped and kinda laughed and said, "Oh my god--you are walking a pony!" And he said, "Oh, no--it's not a pony. It's a miniature horse."
Lastly, my roommate Jen and I stayed up late last night drinking wine and laughing hard and talking about the men in our lives. That, right there, is the stuff of life. ;)
Happy almost-weekend. Mine's gonna be full of cute babies, cute football players, cute boys, and one extremely cute kitten:
