Did you know there is a whole world out there not connected to the internet?
It’s filled with ponies and Cuban coffee and drag queens and giant skillets of food that you can eat and that’s where I’ve been lately. Hanging out, following the advice of Wooderson and just L-I-VI-N’, man.
And I’ve loved it, but I kinda sorta missed this place so I’m back with tales of the real world and how much I loved it (holy shit!).
In the past couple of months, I:
Saw The Black Crowes and Gary Clark Jr.
Was caught in a torrential downpour.
Got muddier than I’ve ever been in my life.
Made new friends who let us into the tent to shield us from the rain and more new friends who let us up to the front so we could see the Crowes up close in all their blues-rock glory.
Walked barefoot on the 70 yard line at Dolphins Stadium.
Listened to John Denney read Clifford the Big Red Dog to small children and experienced ALL the feelings.
Met TD the Dolphin. He was sweaty.
Spent my birthday with some of the greatest people in the world.
Drank bluecoat while wearing a tiara.
Had breakfast with drag queens the next morning.
Celebrated with one of my best friends as she graduated from law school.
Ate a skillet filled with deliciousness in the form of potatoes, eggs, artichoke hearts, spinach, sundried tomatoes and mushrooms.
Realized that the best thing about having two best friends who are lawyers is EVERYTHING.
Spent quality time with my sister eating ALL the food and watching Parenthood (dudes, it’s so good. I mean, Max is the worst but every now and then – they reference Friday Night Lights and my heart just fills up like a balloon).
Spent quality time with Biffle eating ALL the food and making this face a lot. Like all the time a lot. Of all of the pictures ever taken of us, this is the most representative of our relationship.
As much as I love to cuddle up on the couch and spent some quality time with Netflix, I kinda love verbing it up and can’t wait to see what adventures Summer 2013 will bring.
