Happiness and gratitudes


• cold cheese pizza for a nighttime study snack. especially when it costs me nothing.

• browsing the Sarah Haskins/Target Women archives. her videos make me lol. she is so astute. (the Target Women vids are comedic takedowns of advertisements directed at women.)

• the feeling of a clean, just-washed face.

• the superfresh doughnut I bought at the farmer's market on Saturday. so much better than any other doughnut I've had that it's almost weird to call them by the same name.

• the French nun who sells baked things for her charity at the farmer's market. she's small and pretty and wears a habit and has an accent and is exactly how you'd imagine a French nun.

• sugar snap peas.

• dark-chocolate–covered graham crackers. the kind they sell by the cash register at coffee places.

• finding the perfect gifts for my October-born New Englanders.

• realizing that I actually distinguish between hyphens, en dashes and em dashes in my handwriting. I feel that I was marked for copy editing from my adolescence; yet it is also marking me...

• feeling free not to care about things that I just, well, don't care about.

• writing myself a renewed commitment to eating intuitively.

• making new friends.

• Sunday night baking.

• my anthro professor's stories about Andean drinking contests.

• windy nights warm enough to wander in.

• a Ferris wheel lady-date.

• the people I'm getting to know on MC. they are generous and endlessly wise. I really do feel privileged to be a part of a community with them.

Sugar snap peas and a freshly washed face! Mmm...
What are en and em dashes?

Allison - haha, yes, that's right, you took that class. I miss you!

Jenica - the Wikipedia dash article does a good job explaining.
