L'orange

  • I'm beginning to think that the orange started it all, and that the color was named after the fruit. This changes everything.
  • It's a common thing: What to do when you have more to say after you've already added a post script. Many people say p.p.s. or p.s.s. which makes even less sense, but that's fine. I've been thinking it over for some time now and I think the right way to do it, for me at least, is like this:

best,

Jen

p.s. have a good day

p.s. p.s. no, have a great day.

A post script to the post script. But wait, what if I remark on something in the second post script that has nothing to do with the first one? Dang, I'm back to square one. Thoughts?

  • At the park recently, I was watching a group of 9 year old boys playing some kind of game and I heard one of them singing, "video killed the radio star...." and i thought, maybe there's hope for the future after all. (<-- this one makes me sound like a creeper. "At the park recently... through my binoculars, i was watching...")


spent the holiday weekend doing the following things:
  • sitting in the park
  • surviving 95 degree temps by playing in the fountain and going to the pool. ALso, abusing my authority over the mini-spray bottle. The baby didn't mind. He loved it. "More in the face! Again!" he was telling me, I know it.
  • eating my weight in Italian ices. "Hey... yeah, me again. Yep, just 5 minutes ago, yep. So, I would like..."
  • not seeing one firework
  • watching Young Victoria (lovely), Alice in WonderZzzzz... (so boring) To Kill a Mockingbird (has been bumped up to my all time favorite, and Atticus Finch as the hottest movie dad) and Coco Before Chanel
  • eating pancakes several times with fancy syrup and mountains of whipped cream & strawberries. You know how sometimes you just can't get enough of a thing and you eat it repeatedly. I think i'm satisfied... for now. I have a pretty killer recipe if anyone wants it.

Happy Tuesday!

I usually just do the ppps or whatever. Post-post script. It makes sense, right? Even if it's not original?

Favorite quote overheard at a park. Craig and I (engaged at the time) were laying out on a small patch of sand found at the park near my home when two 8/9-year-old boys come upon us. Boy 1 turns to Boy 2 and says, "You know how to keep a girl from dating you? If you catch her looking at you, just say, 'Dream on, freak, dream on!'"

We still look for reasons to say that to each other.

I like O.C.I.E.T.L.P.A.H.M.T.S.
"oh crap, I ended this letter prematurely and have more to say."

I also do the p.p.s. but in my head I say it while accentuating the first 'post': POST post script. But I do like your idea a lot.

Gregory Peck - ALL time MOST crushed on movie star. Yeah, I'm a nerd.

Psssss... Yay for the park

I love this picture. So very cute... of both of them. If they were both here, I would squeeze both of their cheeks, probably. Just the top ones. Don't worry, Sean.
