good god.

God that was funny. Coworker/friend - good friend actually, just walked into my office and said something so matter of factly that I nearly well, died. She's funny in a way that is so dry, that well, it just makes me giggle like I did at age 8. I feel offices need more funny time. Work would be more enjoyable. Wait, offices are funny.

There is really nothing better than discovering a new boutique and loving the shopping-browsing experience. (Okay, there are better things, but this gives me thrill!)

This new store in Wallingford (Seattle) presents the sweetest paper ideas from wine bottle lables and gift tags, to the perfect "thank you" card, to tastings of hand bagg'ied sweets.

I'll definitely be back. I was purely delighted and inspired at Paper Delights.

Rain, rain, go away....

Wake me up when it's over,
Wake me up when it's done,
When he's gone away and taken everything,
Wake me up.

Wake me up when the skies are clearing,
When the water is still,
'cause I will not watch the ships sail away so,
Please say you will.

If it were any other day,
This wouldn't get the best of me.

But today I'm not so strong,
So lay me down with a sad song,
And when it stops then you know I've been,
Gone too long.

But don't shake me awake,
Don't bend me or I will break,
Come find me somewhere between my dreams,
With the sun on my face.

I will still feel it later on,
But for now I'd rather be asleep.

sometimes it comes back to venice queen.

Does it go from east to west, y'all
Body free and a body less, y'all
Come again just to start afresh and
Once again to find a home
In the moment of the meantime

Dropping in coming through the mesh, y'all
Checking in just to get it blessed, y'all
Hard to leave when it's picturesque and
Find a form that's free to roam
Where you come from
Where you going

Where you come from
Where you going

Do it all then it all again, y'all
Make it up and you make a friend, y'all
Paddle on just around the bend and
Find a place where you can see
All the mamas and the papas

Take a chance on a recommend
Hard as hell just to comprehend
Disbelief that I do suspend
Easy now to find a breeze
Where you come from
Where you going

Where you come from
Where you going
