Oh wow, how can jammin out to journey on the radio put me in such a good mood? or maybe it's been the hang out sessions that make me feel a little less like punching the world...

tonight is Mass Hysteri at the Wedge with maximum effort, glass teeth, and joe's new band. The name escapes me.

it snowed and then melted, rained and then stopped. Now it's just wonderful. I have a hair appointment at my sister's new salon tomorrow , which is exciting for her!

FBC is having aprilween on the 9th. amazing. I think everyone has decided to go as coyotes. haha

Patty Bo Bo and I saw Gomorrah. It was really intensely dark and depressing.
why do people laugh at scenes that are so startlingly tragic in small ways? it's not funny, you're just uncomfortable with reality.
Europe is constantly romanticized... people forget that they create evil too.

i love making mix tapes

Clara made some rad pickled horseradish root at work.
All my vegan key lime and coconut cream cheese cupcakes sold out today!

I guess I have to think up a new idea now.

I built my frame for my raised garden bed and will be getting free soil and compost this weekend.

Patty Bo Bo got into Temple. I am so proud of him!!

It's really spring!

I thought I saw a butterfly the other day, and then convinced myself I must have been mistaken. But today I saw another butterfly floating across my backyard, and a fat honey bee circled my cats.
I realized I could probably sit and watch my cats interact with one another forever. they really are beautiful creatures.

Condominium was really good but the show was super terrible. Jessica and I talked to Kim for a while, and she's real neat. Nineteen year old girls should not own houses though.

I made wheat tortillas today and garlic hummus. Cooked up some tempe with some of Zing's all sauce.

we will start doing yoga in tower grove next week, which is really exciting.

KC was awesome. I got silly.
Sad that I missed the rap show, but i think I'm gonna try to have king kong mag. play at my one year anniversary of being single party! I've never celebrated any kinda anniversary and this one is gonna be fun.

condominium is playing tonight and its the grand opening of Ashley's store, binge and purge.

I have had my first adventure in sourdough bread making. The starter took 9 days to ferment. The sponge had to sit for 1 day and then I mixed in the flour and kneaded it. Let it rise two more hours and re-kneaded it. Then formed loaves and let it rise another hour. baked it for 45 minutes and viola!

It contains cornmeal, chickpea flour, wheat flour, oats, sunflower seeds, and unbleached white flour. is dense and sour and delicious.
I am very proud of this.

Jake, jacob, and I went on a south broadway adventure today. Our aim was the crystal wizard but we got there a 1/2 hour too soon. so we wandered down broadway, stopping at the food mart, talked to some folks, then found a garage sale where I purchased a record of an italian man with an accordian and a fantastic bread making book. I have yet to listen to the record.
went to the wizard and bought a poster for Luc's birthday.

I might have a violin teacher soon. Bridget's man friend Brian said he will try to muster up the confidence to teach.

KC tomorrow, I am bummed to be missing the rap show but teenage bottlerocket is amazing

why am I vegan? because I care about this world, not as it is, so much as how it should be. How it can be.

I made vegan chocolate orange cupcakes with orange buttercream frosting and candied orange slices. This was for work.

spring? spring...

Was winter worth being around for? sure. I learned a few things I guess. I learned to relax a little more. I made fanny rap songs. I learned more about wild birds and mammals. I saw a lot of punk bands.

I have been in a funk. A funk all winter but especially since Wednesday. I have sculpted my rage into something like an art form over the past few months. Its brilliant really.
Last night I was determined to be uber social but instead was an uber bitch. I was mean to everyone except Becca. I belittled Mark, knocked a poster out of Kevin's hand, and copped an attitude with Kel. These poor boys.

Thinking about telling people I've converted to Catholicism so i can lay off the treats but every time I think of jacob's rap " gave up dick for lent, brother told me it was heaven sent" haha

gonna go home and listen to blondie and dance. maybe make a pizza. yum

ice cream night at my house ruled. mom, bethany, and emma came along with mark, t-mo, jake, toot toot, ryan, and jacob. we played apples to apples and got some sugar rushes.

drunk hippie came into work, complaining about a bad day.. something about his vw bus. got mad when we wouldn't serve him alcohol to go, so he sat down amoungst the couples eating dinner and slammed two st. petes. could've gotten drunker for cheaper over at the trusty ol 7-11. idiot.

I was wrong. Actually Pat was wrong. American Cheeseburger isn't until May 7th. whatever.

I might get to ride in Mark and T-mo's vanbulance in April all the way to Chicago for Midwest fest!

Jacob and I are planning Krymnal's stoner treat feast tonight. Ice cream rolled in oreos covered in chocolate in between waffles with chocolate spiders... or something. All are welcome!

my compost pile is started and I gathered a whole milk crate full of veggie scraps and coffee from work today.
I am going to grow broccoli, spinach, cabbage, onions, brussel sprouts, tomatoes, zucchini, and carrots and lots more.
Becca has ordered her bee keeping supplies.
we now have a fire ring thanks to Matt.
We will have the most enchanting backyard ever.

I also played sorry with matt, jacob, and ryan until like 2 am. who does that?

more game nights!
"There's nothing like a lady with a buzz saw, I just might build your house or I just might tear it down.."

NPR said St. Louis was the second most depressing city in the United States. That's amazing. And that news made my Monday for sure!

I haven't yet decided if I'm gonna stay in town for Rose's half and Luc's 21st at Off Broadway with KKM rap show or go to KC to see Teenage Bottlerocket with The Queers.

American Cheeseburger is playing here again this Saturday!
