“I love the world!”

July 23, 2011

RIP Amy Winehouse, and my heart breaks with every new story from Norway. Some weeks are darker than others, and this is a dark one.

But don’t worry, world. Somewhere at sleepaway camp in Michigan, a 10 y.o. whose heart has yet to be broken is still in love with you. I know it because she said so. In Sharpie, on her left Croc. Which is, as Lena can tell you, permanent.

It’s written all over her shoes.


Caps For Sale! Real Life Books…

"Caps for sale! Fifty cents a cap! Caps for sale…"


Now I'm going to go look for Frances and her tea set…
I hear it's a real bargain.
