This week the cavern girls watched X Men. Yep, all three. Three girls. Three nights. Three movies. It was delightful.
On the days when we’re all grown up and not sharing the cavern anymore, I’m really going to miss the special times when we all climb onto C’s bed to watch some sort of flick. Sometimes it’s Mrs. Potter, sometimes it’s X Men. And ya know what? We liked them. Big deal. (Then again – we’re not too picky.)
I’m also going miss our matchy matchy pillows.
L rarely burns.
J sometimes gets burned. . .very badly.
Me? I think I always burn. I’ll be the person that carries 80 spf sunblock in my purse every single day. Yeah. I’m gonna be “that” person.
You want proof? You got it.
Let’s just say that Aloe Vera is our new best friend.
Oh, and did you hear about the new trend??? Probably not.
It’s called Fish Lips and Goggles.
Our weather has been quite bipolar. I, speaking as an emotionally-everywhere-at-once kind of person, didn’t enjoy the roller coaster effect that the sun, rain, and clouds have had. I don’t think I’m alone though. Who likes it when June gets mixed up with November?
Thankfully it was quick.
That’s right. Shoo shoo little November weather. We’ve had enough of you.
J and I went on a quick trip to the Carousel Mall on “Winds-day” (that’s from Pooh… don’t give me any weird looks. Winnie the Pooh is only the nicest cartoon bear that eats too much honey). And I only said “Winds-day” because I felt like it. WEDNESDAY was not windy or rainy. It was a nice sunny day and we were able to enjoy it by looking through our vehicles windows, thank you very much.
We were asked to go by a friend that had no idea who she was inviting. Just jokin’. She knows.
There was also a small child next to me. He belongs to our pretty friend that’s in the picture above.
At the mall we bumped into some friends…So of course we took a picture.
On a trip you always see quite the assortment of vehicles. Some look fancy and it’s not too hard to imagine driving that pretty and shiny thing around and calling it yours. But there are also some others that just shouldn’t have been made…ever.
It’s the back view, but that’s okay, because then you can see what I’m poking fun at.
It’s those HIPS…okay, I know they’re not called hips. It’s a dually truck and I think they look silly. And every single time I see one I think things like, “Man, you should lose some weight”, “Your hips are blocking so much of the view”, or “Ugh, your hips aren’t cool. Has anyone told you that???”
I’m allowed to make fun of trucks though, right? Because they certainly don’t have feelings.
Looking at that truck reminds me of when I had to grow an extra pair of hips. Thankfully, I wasn’t alone.
Favorite picture of the month:
Favorite movie quote for the day:
“In my world everyone is a pony, and they all eat rainbows, and poop butterflies.”
As many of you know, I am not a cold weather person. I deal with the winter because I have to but when it’s June 14th and only 54 degrees outside, something’s gotta give. So I try to ignore the fact that most of my summer clothes have yet to be worn and that they may go back in the box this fall without the chance to be put to good use.
In the meantime, I pretend I’m not cold and do weird things. Like play dress-up at 10pm at the age of 18. Aren’t you glad there’s technology to capture these wonderful moments in life?
And, yes, that would be C in the background kicking her legs and laughing so hard because I danced around the room in “gansta” style for quite some time. Eventually I stopped after realizing that J took photos and that it had been 5+ minutes since I had decided to dance. You know you wish you were at the seafoam cavern last night. You know it, girl.
whoops! thats not the photo i wanted..
Ahh yes. Much better. There. On the left. That’s Olive. (in the middle is sister #4. you didn’t recognize her with such lovely long red locks did you?)
Olive is a truly lovely soul. She’s the very person that dubbed our room the Sea Foam Cavern. We’re all so very fond of her around here. Even our Mums adores her! So- last weekend when L and C went away, it only seemed right for her to come and spend the night in the cavern.
I kept her up much too late rambling on about future plans, and dreams, and time, and life, and space monkeys, and Jesus (if you’re wondering how on earth all of those things fit together – trust me, they do).
Then she found this..
This is when our cavern first became sea foam. And thats our Mums surveying the territory. Bet you she wasn’t envisioning this..
L and C are gone on the class trip this week. I chose to stay home and soak up 4 days in the cavern alone. Wonderfulness.
strange things happen when i’m left all alone.
I put beards on all our friends.
I spend extended amounts of time in this place. Exciting things are guaranteed to happen here. such as…
finding gigantic green moths.
lighting things on fire.
building a lean-to out of an old broken picnic tent.
sitting in our urban lean-to withOUT the bugs.
I also spent some time painting. i dont usually spend time painting.
the outcome.. (not too bad, eh?)
I had some awesome bed head this morning.
i also spent some time doing this..
J purchased a skort yesterday. (barf, barf, barf) If I had been with her, I would’ve talked her out of it. Fo’ sho. Okay, no, I wouldn’t have. But still. It’s kind of old lady-esque. Then again, we are getting up there!
C and I are headed to NYC early Saturday morning. I’m really glad that we are because recently I’ve been going through city withdrawals. The last time I spent time near actual city blocks, public transportation, coffee shops, etc., was in April but that was the Ra-cha-cha and everybody knows Rochester isn’t really a city. I’m happy that I’ll be spending 4 days surrounded by 8 million people all living their separate lives but cohesively in a 25 mile radius. I love cities. If I wasn’t going to be moving to a foreign country in January, I’d figure out some way to spend a couple months in NYC. It’s one of my favorite places.
BTW: the last few days have been 85+ degrees out. Today? Well, it’s 60. Deee-pressing.
Oh, yesterday, at work, a snake came into the shop. You heard me — a snake! The door had been open all day and around 5:00 I walked past the front door and noticed a snake slithering right in. It took a solid 30 minutes of trying to get it out but eventually my co-worker picked it up (eww, gross!) and carried it outside. I am never leaving that door open again!
