definitely, my new favorite liquor store.

this past weekend i took a much needed trip out of a town to upstate NY with friends, spending a day at one's lake-side cabin, and another day brunch-ing and spa-going in a giant old mountain house.

lake george.

it was a lovely weekend of road tripping, adventur
e, good conversation, and fun, but i can safely say that the highlight of it was the crumb cake pictured below, which was by far the most fantabulous crumb cake i've ever eaten. and i've eaten a lot of crumb cake.

greatest breakfast ever. ever!

just look at that amazing ratio of crumb to cake! those crumbs were so giant i had to crumble the crumbs just to fit them in my mouth.

i'm going to dream about that cake every night for the rest of my life.

untitled (but yellow).

so we sort of fell off there for awhile. we're not quite sure what day we're up to anymore, so we'll leave this untitled until we do the math.


what we DO know is that today is the 14th, meaning it's my 6-month-as-an- unemployediversary! YAYYYY.

honestly, i'm not asking for a pity party. i got pouty every other 14th thus far, but for some reason i'm in wonderful spirits today.


maybe it's because of this awesome article celebrating spongebob squarepants, who turned 10 this month.

we all know of my love of the little yellow guy from a previous post, but after reading the article's concluding quote, i now think i'm going to consider sbsp one of my heroes.

"Trotting along bright-hearted, laughing his spray-on headache of a laugh, he will not succumb to complication. His corner of the world is all levity. Embrace him, drained adult. Where you see his little yellow flag, salute it; it’s a sign of life."

"you are the busiest unemployed person i know!"

-- direct quote from an email with a friend, which totally made my day, and was probably the nicest thing i've heard all month.

gone are the days when i used to be flattered to hear stuff like 'you look pretty' or 'good job!' or 'have you lost weight?' - these days just acknowledge the fact that i'm keeping myself busy and i will adore you forever.

blurry, as this was attempted from a bus window, on a rainy day.

but the sign in the deli window reads NEW FANCY FOOD.

i so wonder what this "fancy food" is.

dracula, in real time.

unlike us, some people actually use blogger for really super cool things. like blogging out bram stoker's dracula in 'real time', posting the diary entries on the dates the narrator wrote them (starting yesterday, may 3rd).

between finding out about this, and discovering that our favorite ice cream is on sale this week at key food, this is quite possibly the most exciting rainy monday i've had in months.
