This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly, it should be thrown with great force. -Dorothy Parker

the end

LOST ended last night and I am sooooooooo sad. Bear and I are actually both a little depressed. "Lost Ennui" they call it. I felt the same way when Gilmore Girls ended. My mom summed it up best, I think. About a year after GG had gone off the air we were reminiscing about favorite moments and she said "I miss those people." No, they aren't "real" people, but you get to know the characters and when you stop seeing them, you miss them. At least I do.

I came across this image of Sun.

Love this photo.
It's hot :)

what's a not gay way to ask him to go camping with me?

Parks and Recreation was so hilarious last night!

P & P

I'm rereading Pride & Prejudice for me see...5th time? That really isn't that high of a number... I'm sure there are Jane die-hards out there who have read it a lot more times than that. It's not about quantity though (says the one who has no chance of competing in that arena) it is about quality of enjoyment and I am loving this book the fifth time around (as I did the first, second, third, and fourth). I don't know what it is about Austen's writing, but I feel like my life outside of the book becomes better, more thorough, more meaningful and artful, when I'm reading one of her novels. Reading Austen for me is like taking a mental shower. I feel like my psyche, my behavior, and my thoughts all change, become fresher and more pleasant. It might just be the wholesomeness of the world you dive into in her novels, all family and leisure and English gentry and falling in love. Whatever the reason may be, I love the effect. Thanks Jane :)

a year ago

Last April Portland had a beautiful early Spring.

Bear and I went to the pitch and putt at McMenamin's Edgefield.

and bummed around Portland with green tea in tow.

I made a Turkish style breakfast for us one morning.

(I have no idea if this is actually "Turkish", but I had a similar breakfast every morning I was in Turkey.)

I got a letter and some great books from Angie,

and I photoboothed in Astoria with bangs!

2 things

Happy May Day!

My May Day thus far has been super dreamy...sort of. Bear and I walked around downtown (we were devastated when Give Pizza a Chance was closed), went to Powells and rode the streetcar home. We were downtown to begin with because I had to go in to work, definitely not as fun. I wasn't there for long though, and now that I'm out I will banish it from my mind until Monday morning at 7 am :)

But that is off the subject. Today I am thinking of two things:

1. My new coat.

2. This camera:


It's camera porn day on Flickr's blog!
