It is so totally summer right now, all the neighborhood kids have got the fire hydrants open and I can smell the gas from people grilling on the sidewalk. People seem to go crazy at the start of the hot weather, or maybe they stay crazy all summer long, I can't remember. Last night on my way to a bbq I was surrounded by a group of girls on the street. I was carrying beer in my fieldguided tote bag, (which I love by the way) they asked me to stop so that they could read what it said on the bag. I did stop thinking that they were genuinely interested. I have the one that says "flowers are the things we know secrets are the things we grow" it is a quote from a nancy sinatra & lee hazelwood song. The girl who seemed to be the leader (who was also pushing a baby in a stroller) read it all aloud and then sarcastically said "Awwwww how cute!" It was then that I realized they were mocking me! It was so weird! She pretended to ask her friend for a pen so that she could write it down, then they all laughed! I really didn't care, I just found it so odd.

I just listed this 1800s era polka dot jacket to the shop. I think it's pretty cool.

AHHHH! Look at these shoes, are they not amazing?! Never worn, 1970s navy blue and white platform sandals, size 6 1/2. I am in love with them.

Besides the shoes, something else happened, last night at around 3 am Jason puked on my laptop. It was sitting closed on the floor with my cellphone next to it, he managed to puke on them both. I quickly cleaned it up but when I tried to turn it on it would just not start. I brought it to the apple store this morning feeling heartsick and of course they had bad news, they said it would cost $750 for them to try to fix it, it was not a guarantee that it would work either. The guy was like yeah, you should just get a new one. I owned it just a little more than a year so it was very distressing to look at the laptops for sale as they were exactly the same. They tried to talk me into apple care but it does not cover liquid damage which is what always happens to computers that I own, I said no thanks. It was already a stretch to get another. Now I am struggling to get my photos edited, the Iphoto on this one is super weird and different.  I need to be more careful with things. It was so odd that he woke up to throw up right there, on all my important things. At least my crappy cell phone is fine, it's amazing that what destroyed the computer didn't effect the phone at all.

Some new items in the shop today! Let's see, whats new, I worked a lot at my freelance job last week and it wasn't so bad, Erika and I found a new juice truck that parks outside our building and we realized it is the best thing ever. They sell just plain juice and smoothies with real fruit, it's not like jamba juice in a styrofoam cup (that place makes me really mad) I got a cucumber - celery - lemon juice and she got a watermelon - coconut smoothie. We were extra charmed by the fact that they write "meoww" on the cups with a sharpie! And they were only $4! I wish that truck was everywhere. I am also excited about other things, for one I just bought a plane ticket to LA. I am so excited, I can't wait. I am imagining that it will be all parties and cake and ice coffees and I don't know what else. I have really high expectations for this trip. I have been mentally packing a suitcase everyday. Then when I get back we are going to take another cooking class, this time we are learning how to make vegan tamales. I am very much looking forward to the month of June.

Some new dresses in the shop this weekend and a super cute photo of Jason! He likes to carry that stuffed animal around with him, it's a little dog that when squeezed makes a woofing sound. I tell him that it is HIS puppy.

When I was walking around yesterday I saw this cat hanging out on the sidewalk, it cracks me up when cats and dogs lay around with their back legs straight out, it looks so ridiculously comfortable. A moment later he jumped up to pounce on that pigeon feather in front of him.

I have been listing as many new items in the shop as I can, my apartment has become overwhelming, I need to make some room! I think I made a lot of progress today. Besides that I have been drinking a lot of smoothies lately, ever since my juicer broke. My favorites are cucumber - mint - pineapple and banana - blueberry- peanut butter - almond milk. I'm addicted.
