Apparently, I was tragically mistaken. When I called my friend to brag about the elegant night out by myself that I was going to have, he should have warned me of the social suicide-hanging I was going to be committing and all the horrified spectators that would be there. - Oh, I'm so excited. I… Continue reading the size of bananas!
UPDATE: Dan and Nic are down safe! Hooray. Thanks so much for all the encouraging words, prayers and support for them [and me]. El Capitan. 3000 feet of vertical granite. The largest monolith in the U.S. The Captain and I go way back: And by "way back", I mean all of three years back. Look… Continue reading oh captain, my captain.
I saw three people litter today. The First: I was driving at 5:30am [I'm as surprised as you] to do the Anzac Day Run [yes, I am equally as shocked], when I saw the car in front of me throw a candy wrapper from their car. I gave them a quick beep but it didn't… Continue reading on terrigal drive, in front of cornerstone books.
Alright. This is incredible. You [all the subscribers out there... who will one day get their subscriber complimentary tote bag] might remember my post about magic presents. Well, the magic present force is getting stronger... or at least quicker... Coincidence (?) Package #3: This morning I woke up absolutely pining for lemonade... it's something I… Continue reading magic presents strike again!
Sometimes you need to pull out your Go-Tos. When your heart hurts, or life throws frustration in your face, or you've run too far ahead before you realize you don't know where you're going, or things get too stagnant, or you find yourself in a foreign country and you need some you-ness... quick... When the… Continue reading the lips that press back.
Is it sad that I cried watching this?
It's my little bro's birthday... well, it is in Australia... it will be soon in America. He's FIFTEEN. Oh man, it's like he's a real person... all grown up. It's freaking me out. About a MONTH ago [just reiterating "month" so ryland realizes that even though his birthday present will be late, i was trying… Continue reading let’s talk birthday.
I went and saw Jason Mraz last night... he was amazing. People were going crazy over some of the Jason Mraz merch. Especially this shirt: I was so excited to tell all my friends [and the people standing around me who would listen], "My friend Stacey designed these shirts!" Stacey is the designer I wanna… Continue reading my friends are famous.
Coincidence (?) Package #1: Almost a month ago, I was at the Bondi market with a friend. She asked... - Okay, should I look out for anything for you while we're shopping? - Yeah, actually... I'm looking for the perfect necklace. - Alright.... What does the perfect necklace look like? - Well, I'm not sure… Continue reading magic presents.
Dan Long is my Jackson Hole Best Friend*... I don't think that's a shock to anyone. Dan: I wish you posted more blog entries. Rach: I've had a headache as of late. Dan: I'm not asking for sex... just a blog post. I'll try, Dan Long... For you, I'll try... *But it was a close… Continue reading i miss dan long.
[Well, that was helpful. Just kidding... Thanks so much to all who participated in this very important decision. I wore the yellow... I had to make a game day decision and all went well. I think Jesus and the Easter Bunny were pleased. I decided I need to utilize this decision-making tool more often. Maybe… Continue reading choose my own adventure… err… dress.
Some things [in order from least awesome to most awesome]: First of all, I'm not too proud that I get this song stuck in my head on the regular. It's a very teenie bopperish song... but I sing it to Bink. Instead of "Hey boys and girls...", I sing, "Hey Binky Girl"... and dance... oh,… Continue reading i just wanna dance.
Just when I thought there were no more "Dad's Postcards", I get this in the mail: It is addressed to "Her Longness (Pirate Rachel) Ms Rrrrrrrrrrrrr.... Stevens" and it reads: "Hey Blu Rae. Here is a photo of 'Happy Hr' at the family reunion. That's me in the red hat (so Mom can find me). … Continue reading he needs to drink more coffee.
It was April Fool's Day in the States today... whoops. I played no tricks. But it did make me think of all the past pranks in my life. Oh man, there have been some GREAT ones. Remind me to tell you about what we coined "Ear for an Ear" some other time. It involved a… Continue reading you were definitely stampeding.
Kylie [my boss, a 29-year-old hottie] and I like our coffee. We found a local cafe that serves our favorite: Campos. The stuff is like heaven on earth, voted best coffee in the Southern hemisphere. Campos deserves a post in itself... but this post is not about coffee... Ky and I have developed a little… Continue reading …what with the recession and all.
