Okay, so it's not like I can go, seeing as Eli lives in another country, across oceans and quite a bit of land, but I've never been asked before, and probably never will again, but finally. It's scrumptious to know that someone, somewhere, would have liked to take me to prom.
I have cool friends.
Here are a few photos from this week:
My mom made blueberry-lemon-cinnamon muffins and they are absolutely amazing. They were also the darlingest shade of blue. You can't really tell in the photos, though. Oh well.
The book looks gigantic in this photo. I can't resist buying these old hardbounds, I really can't. It's a good thing they aren't pricey.
Off I go to see How To Train Your Dragon!
Cartoons make me excited.
Things I've been eyeing lately:
- Navy blue Keds. I'm lusting after them, oh dear.
- This feather-printed tank top in ATC. It's 300+, but I WANT IT.
- Paint-splattered leggings. They also make me want to wear off-shoulder t-shirts and legwarmers. I'm not sure that's a good thing.

My little sister is reading it for the first time, and I remembered how much I loved this book. It's lovely. And the illustrations are beautiful - I love Maurice Sendak. This story was so real to me because of the pictures. It was a bit like a dream.
"Aw, that was just a picture," Jella said scornfully. "You can put anything in a picture. All that is is a dream."
"Ah, yes, that's all it is," the teacher said. "As yet! But that's where things have to start - with a dream. Of course, if you just go on dreaming, then it stays a dream and becomes stale and dead. But first to dream and then to do - isn't that the way to make a dream come true?"

I spent the day at Krispy Kreme, taste-testing their new Pull-Aparts and Kruffins. Kruffins. It sounds like a type of giant. I don't know.
Here I am with a totally failed attempt at a self-portrait, with a guest appearance by The Stair Step. (I need a tripod.)
I love this retro look. And the color of those chairs! Like a washed-out teal.
Ina giving me advice.
Her candy-colored nails.
Doodling on the surveys:
And eventually I got so bored I started making paper cranes:
And Ina fell asleep.
And afterwards we went to Market Market and bought some cheap make-up and then spent two hours in the bookstore.
