Today I wore my favorite yellow dress… the one I bought on a very happy day in Australia.
I had been wanting a yellow dress. It was a very long day. The trains were all messed up [per usual], so I had to wake up at 3am to catch a train to the outskirts of Sydney to make it to an interview for a new nannying family. [Long story, but I wasn’t exactly happy with the current family I had… The Vincents.]
Anywho… It was such a long, weird, amazing morning. I wrote in my journal, I listened to music, I rode in a train that looked like it was out of the Darjeeling Limited, I met with the Parkers, they were great, they were sweet, they were young, I drank coffee, I got offered the job, I rode to Newtown [the Austin of Sydney], I was refreshed.
I stepped out of the train station and there was a market accross the street. I spotted the yellow dress. I bought it immediately… $10. I went to a coffee shop [my favorite], I put it on, it fit perfect, I beamed.
[outside the library, at the bike rack, a random man smiles at me and says…]
– You’re very yellow.
– Oh… Thanks?
– It’s awesome. [then rode off on his bike.]
Well, thank you random man. I am very yellow and it is awesome.
And here is a song for you. I didn’t like it so much at first, but now I really like listening to it in the morning:
[p.s. my poached internet is messing everything up… so no pictures of the yellow dress and no embedded video of Matt and Kim. bummer.]
