You leave a note for the girl that created a color palette you liked on Colour Lovers.

"Hang in there Kim".

The palette is called September Blues.

No one really chats on Colour Lovers.

sauce and spaghetti

Spaghetti cost $9.

I bought the tomatoes online as they were a special variety I was trying to buy but couldn't find anywhere.
These canned ones were not anything special.

I was spending a weekend in Michigan with my boss and work friends and while eating lunch Rob and Pam went across the street to a store for candy (I think)?

When they came back they said something like they had a gift for me or something I would really like and basically acted like it would be life changing.

That created some awkward anticipation like moment before they finally pulled out this giant lighter. I really didn't get it at first but they explained they thought I could use it to meet someone. Like an ice breaker. This was pretty funny and we couldn't stop laughing. I said I didn't think I could suddenly become a prop comic. It didn't fit my nature and I didn't think I could pull it off.

I just found that lighter a week back as it somehow ended up in my bathroom and I happened to need a lighter while in my bathroom. I think I was too aggressive with it though and I ended up breaking the sparking part.

Nick and I were watching the Sochi opening ceremony tonight and Nick noted the torch was weird. Disturbingly modern. He said it looked like a vacum cleaner which, it does. Or a kick ass hair dryer, I said. Nick thought they should use something really old looking. He wanted something like a 200 year old log and I suggested the jaw bone of an ass would look pretty old school.

Then I got curious and started looking up old US Olympic torches to see how modern looking they were. Turns out you can buy one if you want. I then I started to think how cool would I look at a concert if I pulled out a 1996 Atlanta Summer games torch?

This photo is surreal.

this looks crazy

These tomatoes are only grown in Sicily and are much redder than normal tomatoes.
