Goodbye Ink and Paper Vingt Neuf

I do odd things.

I write in the early morning hours. I listen to 1960's British pop songs while writing papers (Sandie Shaw- My Darling Daughter.) I have a favorite coffee mug that I use every morning. I don't like to go out to eat, so I am making one new dish each week at least. I check the weather for the week and then I pick out outfits for each day. I line up the selections in order in my closet. I have to force myself to fall asleep. I am always afraid that once my eyes are closed and they stay that way for too long I will miss out on something. I type tutu instead of too too when I want to put an emphasis on the word too. I dislike when people text things like sigh, I never do it, and when people do it to me I completely ignore it (sometimes the entire message if it contains it). It isn't fair and is most likely a little mean, but I think that it is better than pointing it out every time. I automatically assume that everyone in the world loves literature and can listen to classical music for long stretches of time. I can't wrap my finger around the idea that some people eat meals in front of a television set.
I have always wanted to step into a fairy tale by accident (or whim) and be crowned Forest Princess, I even tried to kiss a frog earlier tonight (Not making this up by any means).
These are my six (un)important things that make me happy. (Was I tagged? I think technically, I mean, you did ask? Right Jenny?)
1. Fairy Tales
2. Colorful Pebbles that turn up in my shoe
3. Ceylon Tea
4. Beach House (it's a band)
5. Doing Laundry/Dishes in solitude I can think deeply while doing household tasks
6. Fancy Writing Utensils/Paper


  1. For some reason your six favorite things made me realize we need to have a picnic...and then a fab shopping day in Weston (stock up on faded glamorous antiques and drink homemade lemonade while strolling around a charming small town setting).
    If we do these things, I think we will have a quaint little summer.
    And yes, I did tag you. ;)

  2. And wear floral dresses, and have little miniature foods and go swimming and wear hats and prance around like mad and oh goody I am excited!

    We can listen to my weird dream pop music on the way there, it is quite conducive to laying in the grass and looking at clouds.
    I am not sure how it fairs when paired with heatstroke... we shall see.

    And I call packing the picnic because I want to make all the food.

  3. I love the sound of music! It's my favorite musical by far.

  4. I've never wanted to step into a fairy tale "by accident." I'm always out looking for a fairy tale to find and step into...on purpose. ;) I really like your blog by the way. (Go figure, because I love Jennifer's blog.)

    I didn't realize you were one of my followers. Thanks for that. :) For some reason, it won't let me see anyone's followers, so I'm not sure if I'm one of yours. I'll check back again later.
