movin' on up

i'm moving to my own apartment this week. i'm a little nervous. i've never lived alone before, and while i'm excited at the prospect of having my own space and really being on my own, i don't know if i'm ready. i'm not sure anyone can ever really know until they do it. so i'm going for it and i'll soon find out if i am up to it. what do you think? do i look ready?

"I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address."

i have an intense and inexplicable love for school supplies. i get weirdly excited every fall when they go on sale. just the other day i bought 3 boxes of pencils (i find it oddly comforting to sharpen them), new crayons, markers, colored pencils and a multi-pack of big pink erasers. i think i'll go back and buy some notebooks and lined paper, because i do things like that.

go ninja! go ninja! go!!!

i never thought i would say it, but vanilla ice got it right! there has been an ongoing debate as to whether or not pirates are better than ninjas (definitely not) and we decided to settle it once and for all with pirate vs ninja day at work. this is a rare sighting wherein the pirate and ninja pose amicably, little does he know, the ninja is about to turn on him with an arsenal of throwing stars and kick-a martial arts moves!!!

"a man without a mustache is like a cup of tea without sugar"

but what about a woman, or a child? whoever wrote this english proverb clearly did not forsee the events taking place at my job on monday. mustache monday to be more specific. my teens and i (mostly me) decided that one dress up day a week just wasn't enough, so we added one. stay tuned for wacky wednesday...
