Of course this would happen right after I make the decision to move back.  First California nearly burns down.  And then it gets a little closer to falling into the ocean.

Get my lemon drop ready, Big Sis.  We may be ducking and covering under the table for awhile.

Jill.  She’s the kind of BFF that knows you have approximately six dollars left in your checking account, thus treats you to an iced coffee and gelato, brainstorms with you about becoming private dicks (need: trenchcoats, listening devices, frosted glass window that says J & S Investigations, etc.), treats you to an episode of How I Met Your Mother and then sends you home with a four pack of Charmin.

THAT, dear readers, is friendship. 

100 Things

To commemorate my departure from Kansas to the California Promise Land, I’m counting down up the Top 100 Things I Love About California and the Top 100 Things I Love About Kansas.  I’ll give you a few each day.  I know.  You’re so friggin’ excited that you don’t even know how to contain it.

He Still Uses AOL

My dad is, well, kinda slow to catch on to the latest technological trends.

For the past 10 years, his various computers have essentially existed only as very expensive games of solitaire.

Recently, he has taken up email forwarding.  Remember when people sent forwards ALL THE EFFING TIME?

That’s my dad.  Stuck in 1998.

He also just learned to text message.

He’s rad.
