Peter: This decor is so autumnal!
Me: *blank stare*
Peter: Pertaining to fall?
But then we had a super delicious dinner at Zen Kitchen, full of tapas platters and warm caramel sauce and now I'm still full hours later!
I love that I got my sister into tumblr and now I can see how adorable and nerdy she is about her program! <3
Getting Over a Hate Crush →
I shouldn’t bitch about my hate crush online but basically: she’s a mean girl. And coined the phrase “What a b”, which I co opted as it perfectly describes her. But yeah. Getting over this hate crush now. For reals.
Oh, for fox creek!– Paul, upon realizing his car was now trapped in some weirdly secure downtown parking garage. It’s adorable the lengths he goes to to avoid swearing sometimes! (Jesus Murphy is another key one)
“I need to get OUT of here. I was waffling on whether or not to try to stay and make RI a home and make it work or to move somewhere else. TF sat me down a few weeks ago and looked me straight in the eye… “Beth. What are you doing? Get the hell out of this state. Your family doesn’t live here. I am your only friend here and I’m leaving soon too! Go. Get up and just GO.” I blinked at...
Ottawa South crazies
“You know you can win money with 649? I won $99, I won $100 today, I have plenty of money.” Thanks, crazy dude on a bike, I did in fact know that lotteries are for winning money.
Paul: Perhaps when you tell people what you did tonight, it would be best not to say that you were swinging.
Me: But no one who knows me would think anything but the most innocent meaning of that!
So tonight we went swinging. And drank coffee (Paul had cider). And charmed liquor store employees out of their boxes. And played the cats game (which is really just the cows game, but modified so one can play it in the Glebe).
Slooooowly saying goodbye to this city. PB&J sandwiches with Mike in a park tonight. Hip hop night(!) for Neil’s birthday on Thursday (ermm, I know, right?). This is crazy, you guys.
Dear Universe, I’m very confused. I’m still waiting for a sign. If I don’t get one by the end of tomorrow, I think… I think I give up. Love? Nicole
If you ever start to think to yourself, Hmmm, I don’t get nearly enough email these days!, the clear solution is just to post an apartment on craigslist, and suddenly every person in your city will be trying to get in touch with you about more photos/square footage/how cold it is in the winter/whether their extremely friendly pitbull would be able to live there too. But none of them will...
realpeterjette: Fuck I would play good money for some Reese’s peanut butter cups to be delivered to my house. I was just thinking tonight about how much I’m going to miss being able to walk to Shoppers at 10 pm on a Thursday and get Lindt hazelnut chocolate bars! Sad face.

it's pouring rain
And I’m watching Mad Men and eating homemade mac and cheese. And I’m happy. Do I really want to give all this up?
the leaves are changing & so can you. NEW SCHOOL. NEW JOB. NEW LOVE. NEW LIFE. autumn calls for reinvention, a change of scenery. don’t hold back. cut your hair, tell her you love her, tell him you’re leaving, start a band, leave your job, switch your major, do what makes you feel good. the choices you make now will pave the way for the rest of your life. does that always have to be a negative...
