2:81 Sprung: A Love List



Unnamed revelers in the thaw.
Found on Pinterest. Do you know the artist?

Biddies. It’s Friday. Below, a humble love list:

1. I saw David Sedaris give a reading (largely straight from his diary) this week and it was magic. I adore his Lilliputian voice and stature and the way he explained his vest and ill-fitting, Fred Mertz-ian trousers before he began, lest we audience members wrongfully presume that he was “a vest person.” Never. If you want to feel all the feelings, read Now We Are Five.

2. In case you somehow missed all of my holier than thou #nunpun gloating, I was a sister on the Sound of Music Float in the St. Patrick’s Day parade. Preach!

3. This is the weekend of dinner parties! Tonight: tacos. Tomorrow: Vernal Equinox Feast! I’m making guacamole and lemon roasted asparagus/an edible flower and golden beet salad/lavender lemon tartlets, respectively. Olé/I want my Maypole!

4. I am greeted by name at Whistler now. I went twice this week… Oopsie daisy.

5. TaskRabbit and Benefit delivered a SUPERB swag bag to my office on Tuesday — brimming with under eye de-puffers, look-alive makeup, healthy snacks and quality hydration — just because I tweeted them that I needed hangover help. Which wasn’t even true… I just wanted dat swag. Thank you TaskRabbit and Benefit!

6. Two of my favorite causes merged! Lingerie Lyrique is giving a special performance at the {she crew} fundraiser on April 11, and we start rehearsing this weekend. ALSO, the lovely {she crew} founders are giving a Tedx Talk in May! I am equal parts proud and impressed!!!

7. Lillstreet is hosting a FREE workshop open house tomorrow! Do some metal working! Throw a pot! Screen print a tote bag! Check it out.

8. This weekend, Comfort Station celebrates two of my favorite things: singing at the top of your lungs and bike season! FYI, my other favorite things are iced coffee and dancing to Motown music. Raindrops on roses are cool, too.

9. Have you all tried oil pulling? I know Sandy has! I’ve been doing it for about a week, and I think it’s doing something? I’m not sure if my teeth are visibly whiter, but it makes me feel so fresh and so clean (clean.)

10. I’M GOING TO MAKE STUFF THIS WEEKEND. Sunday is reserved for bedazzling, collaging, painting, feng shui-ing my kitschy lil’ heart out! AND IT’S GOING TO BE SO GREAT.

What are you lovin’? Fill me in, G!

Hey you! is largely devoted to musings on what balance means to an urbane, artsy-fartsy twenty-something. It’s tough out here for us post-grad women: if you’re not homeless, you’re doing something right. But do you, too, worry that you spend too much time furrowing your brows over your future when you should be unwrapping and relishing your present? Do you, like me, sometimes feel like everyone expects you to be the type of person who spends the majority of her entry-level “arts” paycheck on fifteen dollar old-timey cocktails, four a.m. cab rides home and everything sequined on the Urban Outfitters sale rack when, perhaps, you are really the type of person who would rather drink cucumber mint kale juice while wearing yoga pants and Googling reiki techniques? Is it possible that such a person is one and the same, and she is fabulous in her own, very confused right? Sister girl, I hear you. I know you. I accept you. I also know in my happy gut, full heart and coffee-addled brain that you and I are gorgeous glow worms, just as we are! We are sparkle ponies of light and love and we are still in the process of teasing out our true, authentic selves with all of this… living. So if you don’t have it figured out, if you acknowledge that you never will and that is tremendously exciting, if you want to connect with other smart chicks and tap into that charming inner-self of yours, then come back real soon, ya hear? We’re family now!

  1. I read Now We are Five, then heard it again on This American Life. It’s too much for me to bear. Thanks for the shout out! The wife of the photographer I’m interning for reads my blog and is going to start oil pulling. I think I am starting a movement? Either way, I need to remind myself to grab a jar of magic coconut oil to keep at Andrew’s because I want to swirl that divinity in my mouth on the daily.

  2. You’re interning for a photog?! FUN. And I think the best article I’ve read re: oil pulling is on Jezebel. Weird. Essentially, it does a super great job is cleaning your mouth (but you should still brush and floss because oil only goes one mm deep as opposed to floss/oral irrigators which go 5 mm deep), but the reason other people are experiencing happy skin and nasAl passage-clearing symptoms is that your mouth is really healthy, so rather than fight the infection that’s usually in your mouth, your bod has time to fight infection elsewhere. Same deal with going vegan, going raw, etc. as far as I’m concerned – you’re healthier in one area and it affects all areas. INFLAMMATION REDUCTION FOR THE WIN.

    Just a morning novel. Writing a post on balance/detoxing/being me and drinking whiskey like it’s water all the days sometime soon! I am sure you can relate.
