Photo Friday

I'm supposed to be making a lasagna right now. Well, sort of. My friends and I started a tradition of girls' night last year and took the summer off and are reconvening tonight and I said I'd make an entree. I was feeling extra-powerful in the kitchen since I have access to my parents' kitchen and all its accoutrements (real pots and pans and non-stick spray and an oven you don't need a match to light) but now I'm doing this:
And do you know what "this" is? It's called organizing my room. Listening to The Black Keys and finding accessories in this disaster of a bedroom. I'm even going to upload more pictures, because I want you to see the hurricane of STUFF that I have to decide what to do with.



Look! I'm drowning in clothes. And books. I also feel the need to show you all the bottom half of my outfit, because it's embarrassing.

No, I didn't go to Brown. Yes, there's more clothing on my bed. Yes I'm wearing cut-off sweatpants with cashmere socks and a head wrap. And I'm going to head to the kitchen in a minute to attempt to make something that goes along with the "Red, White and Blue" theme of tonight's soiree. Can we take an official vote on whether or not my life has reached enough of a point of "pathetic" for me to be okay with moving 3,000 miles?

I haven't actually organized anything yet. I've just posed for you and drank a cup of coffee. If this post doesn't get me a Pulitzer I don't know what. Maybe it'll get me an agent? Or an episode of "What Not To Wear"?

Oh, I had such high hopes for this post to be the end of my spell of lameness. No one even acknowledged my pathetic joke of a spider poem satire. I guess I'll steer clear of satirizing children's rhymes from now on.

PS: If anyone has favorite spots in any of the following states please let me know, I'm looking for good road trip diners, views, photo spots, whatever. The states are: Delaware (haha), Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee (southwest corner/Memphis), Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas (panhandle), New Mexico, southwest Colorado, Arizona. Route subject to change. Life subject to change.

Dude, you're like a way cooler Bon Jovi.
It's almost 2pm, and I've only had a coffee and read blogs today.
I think we're a match on patheticism. Yes!

Hey! I actually linked your spider-poem joke on twitter, I thought it was a fun bit of cleverness.

You're braver than me. I've been meaning to do photos of my living space and my hurricane of stuff in the single room I live in for months now. Mad props.

Laurenne-I had a feeling we were soulmates. ;)

Randall-You linked me?! I need to start following you on Twitter. Also, I'm not this brave, it's my parents' house. I'm currently homeless so its all open to judgement.

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one out there who blogs about a messy room instead of cleaning it :D

Love the pics, you crack me up. Also, that head scarf is all kinds of bad ass. Actually, your whole outfit is just amazing. Almost rivals the assortment of wool sweaters, sweatpants, and scarves I've been hanging around in lately (there's no heat in my commune right now...).

Haha Delaware isn't real. Name one person from Delaware. You can't.

But try the Paper Moon diner in Baltimore. It's amaaaaaaaaaazing and it looks like a graduate art student's wet dream inside.
