We got a Ken Burns tweet
But I feel like the medium isn’t really letting him shine.
So I fixed it.
made me laugh.
When I talked to my mom last night, she was trying to describe her new boss’s hairstyle. This morning I opened this email and almost choked.
This is my commute every day in Shanghai. It only gets a little hairy.
This is kind of hypnotic.
Saw these crazy huge mushrooms out at my dad’s. From far away it looked like a white dress shirt had escaped the laundry and tried to hide out behind a tree. Getting closer, they looked like flowers.
Disproportionate things are either awesome (the 4’ tall wrenches at Northern Tool) or creepy (mascot heads) to me. These were borderline spooky. I wish I’d put something in for scale, though there is the smiling face of Duns in the last one.
Feels like I ate one of those sponge capsules that turn into a dinosaur if you add water but instead of a dinosaur it’s a hangover.

Two nights in a cabin, then 5 days in the BWCA. For a woman who’s never camped more than 100’ from her car, it was a pretty amazing experience. We carried massively heavy packs, slogged through leech infested waters, sunk up to our knees in gunk, and for the first time in my life I was in a place dark enough to see the Milky Way. Photos don’t even come close to capturing it.
2016 or bust.
I’m back in the land of cell towers. Pictures tomorrow, whether you want them or not.
I’m unplugging until Monday!! I love you and I’m proud of you!!!!
The problem with Chloes.
In the past 6 months, I’ve had 2 teenage girls sign up for tumblr using email@example.com as their email. One girl even used the address when she ordered her prom dress.
So, a lesson and a question:
Don’t use your nickname as a pseudonym unless you check its current baby name popularity. It’s been 7 years, and the world is freaking drowning in Chloes.
What’s the deal with just deciding something’s your email address without checking? Excitement? Entitlement? Are Chloes just inherently goofy??
Last time I saw my aunt, I gave her these shoes. Got this tonight with “Giants colors! Orange and black! Perfect!” and I can’t stop giggling.
