This is me last Sunday afternoon, coming back from our absolutely insane and ridiculous weekend of driving and eating and puking.
I slouch too much.
This Thai Iced Tea was over too quickly. On the plus side, it is a gorgeous day, and despite my student loan payment randomly going up, I am happy. Boyfriend gets here on Wednesday. I plan on purchasing that face mask that I love from Lush (*~~womanhood~~*). Who knows, maybe I’ll finally buy some produce tomorrow (br00klyn g0ddess).
Some day out of the blue it will find you
Always a face to remind me
Someone like you
Someone like you
Someone like you
And for Easter, my grandma has sent me this: a robotic kitten called “L’il Kitty” that purrs, jumps, wags its tail and walks.
I did say I wanted a cat some day.
It’s a coffee in my sushi mug morning. Staying in bed for a while today. Someone remind me that gin doesn’t hydrate you.
This is my work desk today.
Don’t ask questions!

Mike and I went to Mass MOCA this past Saturday, one of my favorite museums in the world. We saw two incredible exhibits: “Phoenix” by Xu Bing (above) and a “Oh, Canada!” (a piece from it by Charles Stankievech called “LOVELAND” below). Both were stunning. I could not believe the sheer scale of Xu Bing’s piece and the years of work that went into it; we are lucky to have it visiting the States. I read that it will be installed in a cathedral in New York next and cannot wait to see it’s impact on that kind of space.
The “Oh, Canada!” exhibit was the most wonderful surprise. I felt obligated, being Canadian, to check out this enormous retrospective of contemporary work from the not-always-frozen North. I didn’t expect the work to be so continuously fascinating; with 60 artists participating, I thought for sure there had to be one that I did not connect with. But no! Each piece was incredible and the emotions involved impressive and moving. I especially connected with Charles Stankievech’s “LOVELAND”, a video which immersed you completely in a cloud flying past you by rendering the space you were in totally white. Other notable pieces I took with me home and into my dreams: “Man With Gun” by Sarah Anne Johnson, and “Scenes from the House Dream” by David Hoffos.
A perfect day, all around.
On a sidenote, “Oh, Canada!” had many disturbing and often times frightening pieces. Mike and I gave it an 8/10 on the creepy scale. Makes me wonder how everyone is doing up there…
It’s Nametag Friday at work and the theme was ‘I can’t live without…’
The perks of living in a Jamaican neighborhood - 6 fishcakes for $2 and delicious Jamaican Kola Champagne. Love it.
Note from my boyfriend when I got home to look in the fridge.
I am so happy and I love him so much.
This is my first Little Brown Bag. I don’t think I have ever left Bloomingdales with anything in my hand (just a lot of free perfume sprays). Okay, so I was using a giftcard. Whatever! It still counts right?
The best part is how much nicer people in the store were to me after I had a bag in my hand. Got so many free samples.
And yes, I do plan on saving the bag so I can go back and walk around with it like I bought something.
Present from the curator I am working with. Such an awesome lady.
