7.5.2014: Champagne Supernova

We’re cutting across the neighborhood taking turns swigging champagne from a brown paper bag, the ultimate expression in trash and class. Just a pair of friends walking and talking. At first porch lights and the occasional set of headlights illuminate our way until we emerge from the neighborhood onto a busier road and the street lights rain burnt orange down onto us. We walk up to our friends sitting out on their stoop and there’s much rejoicing and hugging as if it’s been months instead of days since we were all last together. We ascend the stairs into their apartment and they give us blood orange soda to pour into mason jars with the remainder of our champagne. We talk art. We talk each other. We pet their cat that lolls over onto her belly reveling in the love. The heat pushes us back down the stairs back out onto the stoop. We exchange several rounds of “come with us” and “not tonight” and finally farewell hugs all given and empty mason jars all returned we continue down the sidewalk into the night.

I’ll pay for this night in the morning with two TUMS and two Advil, but you’re only young once. Exactly once.

What are You Thinking About?

“What are you thinking about?” You ask me. Your daddy long leg legs are stretched out across my bed at a slight angle, so the entire length of you will fit. It’s like you’re the beanstalk and I’m Jack and my heart, not my heart, but wherever my lust resides, that location, longs for the adventure of scaling you.

I tug at your sock covered toes and say, “Laundry.”

But, I should say I’m thinking about the day I met you. How you and your brother and your brother’s girlfriend started out ahead of me and my friend as we hiked up the hill leading to the Getty, but somehow at some point ya’ll wound up behind us and I’m so self-conscious I keep tugging my bubblegum pink skirt down cause while I want you to notice my ass, I don’t want your brother’s girlfriend to catch a back view of my cooch.  We reach the summit and ya’ll head over to the art and me and my girl hit up the food court. I figure if it’s something it’ll happen. Continue Reading →

Miss Jessie’s: Pillow Soft Curls vs. Multi-Cultural Curls

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend :) Let’s get to it!

So, you all already know I am in LOVE with Miss Jessie’s Pillow Soft Curls. It is my Holy Grail hair product. But, I was really curious about the difference between Pillow Soft and their Quick Curls formula. While I was poking around on the internet, I learned they have a new product Miss Jessie’s Multi-Cultural Curls.

5.24.2014: Saturday Surprise

Yesterday, I woke up unusually early for a Saturday, because I went to bed unusually early for a Friday. This means that the napa cabbage and chicken stir fry I had planned to make for dinner, got made for breakfast instead. Too much vinegar.

After returning to bed for a few more hours, I finally pulled it together enough to head on over to the Denver Flea. Continue Reading →

Have Beignets in Bed: Euro Classic Imports Authentic French Mini-Beignets

Beignets rank real high with me as far as desserts go. I  am spitting distance from the best beignets in the city and Cafe Du Monde was a “Must Eat At” stop for me in New Orleans. If you’ve never had a beignet, they’re kind of like high class donuts. And just like donuts, the quality drops significantly when you buy them pre-packaged at the store versus fresh from the bakery all light and fluffy and powdery. Yet, somehow these little mini-beignets lured me into purchasing them from Whole Foods a few weeks ago.

5.22.14: Life After LiveJournal

In an effort to create a habit of daily writing, I am going to begin using this space to journal about my life as well as sharing cool shit with y’all. 

 

Hail three days in row, but I guess no weather is weird weather in Denver. Before the bad weather set in the day was very sunny (typical) and slightly humid (not typical). Good enough weather for a robust crowd at the return of Civic Center EATS, but not so good that I couldn’t find parking nearby. Continue Reading →
