happy birthday, girl.

my sister’s birthday is today. she finally turns 21.

things you do not want to hear your baby sister say, but did:

“i’m on my period now. i’m running like a waterfall.”

“is snowballing where you suck a guy’s dick and he cums into your mouth and then you spit it back into his?”

“what is muff diving?”

i don’t think i am ready to see her grow up like this. it’s very disturbing.


domino dancing

I don’t know why, I don’t know how
I thought I loved you, but I’m not sure now
I’ve seen you look at strangers too many times
A love-you-once is of a, a different kind

Remember when we felt the sun
A love like paradise, how hot it burned
A threat of distant thunder, the sky was red
And when you walked, you always – turned every head

(all day, all day) watch them all fall down
(all day, all day) domino dancing
(all day, all day) watch them all fall down
(all day, all day) domino dancing

instead of the usual poker night, we played dominoes last night. it was pretty fun and a nice change of pace. the hot summer nights are still beating down on us and we had to have a fan nearby to keep us cool.


root beer float

there is approximately 4 gallons of ice cream in the freezer at work leftover from yesterday’s celebration. let us first all pause while we full appreciate the joy with which i am engaged in as i chronicle this fact.

4 gallons of ice cream.

we have root beer in the building.

yes, folks…root beer.

i’m currently sitting next to a 7 scoop root beer float and let me just say that this kind of decadence should be treasured by anyone who has the luxury of indulging in such gluttony.

now, go ahead, carry on with what you were doing before.


phone calls

i got two phone calls yesterday that meant a great deal to me. the first was from a friend whose voice i have not heard in a while. it was great to be able to chat with them again. it wasn’t so much that we talked about things of earth-shattering importance, but just the witty banter that we had was rather pleasant. i missed talking to them.

i miss good banter. i remember when i would liken the conversations that i had with certain people to that of the conversations that dawson and joey would have. they have such an engaging, quirky dynamic that it was always entertaining to listen to them talk. and i got some of that yesterday. it was nice.

the second call i got was from a concerned friend who wanted to make sure that i was ok. i’m not sure what spurred the check in call, but it was very sweet of her to call and check in. sometimes the warm fuzzies can come from such a small gesture, but it can move mountains.

they were good calls and i’m thankful for having such good friends.


bbq pool party

i guess i’ve been a little bit of a slacker as i’ve not posted any pictures for a while. i have a bunch that i should post, i just haven’t gotten around to the actual processing. oh well.


never have i been surrounded by more hawaiians in my life outside of hawaii.
