Oyster Po'boy.  The lunch special that I tragically missed.  Curse rushes and being a solo server!

If you don't know what My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is, you really, really should.  Fix your education and learn why Pinkie Pie blowing bubbles is the most amazing thing ever.

Adorable little portion of red beans and rice, coupled with cornbread.  Delicious and very N'Awlins.

crazybusy

Oh god, I'm in a show AGAIN.  This one is called Crazy/Busy, and it's been the most fun I've had on a stage in a while.  33 plays, 55 minutes, and I act and wrote a piece for it.  We do it in conjunction with this other fabulous piece that's actually going to Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival.  Which, for those of you who don't know, is a big deal and pretty awesome.

Veggie kabobs!  Though this is one of those unfortunate scenarios where food looks a lot better than it tastes...tragedy.

corsages

This was my project for the day - thirteen corsages, handmade with silk flowers, ribbon, and a tiny but powerful glue gun, all done for the sake of the show I'm currently working on.

dad

My da!  Looking unusually earnest.  Also seen: the chocolate raspberry mousse cheesecake thingamadessert I made him for Father's Day.  My father is the backbone of my life in a lot of ways - he at once encourages me to fend for myself and always has my back, and I know he'd do anything for me, because he pretty much already has done it all.  

Love you, Da.

This is my favorite sculpture.  It's called The Aviator.  Every time I walk past it, I rub the top of one of the flyer's feet for good luck.

catered

Last night, I was working a catered event until very late, essentially acting as house manager/bouncer.  At the end of the night, one of the caterers was sweet enough to put together this little meal for me.   Happy of the day: random acts of kindness.  Practice them.

Can we just talk for a moment about how much FAIL this dog food brand is?  Yes, people.  Your dog deserves being rabid and getting SHOT.  TRAGICALLY.

And now, hello to the cozy basement pad where we now live!  We're calling it the Hobbit Hole, and it is lovely.  And cool, which is an immense blessing considering how blastedly hot it is outside right now... (Seriously?  Early June?  Like this?  Boo.)
