SAN ANTONIO REVIEW 3 days later...

  • i disappointed my sister by forgetting my pearls for the big pearl photo shoot and my dearest mother let me borrow hers**
  • my family and i had the Best Family Photo Session Ever
  • i got to see a lot of the Cutest Nephew Ever
  • kenton and i drove around till almost 1 am on a saturday night looking for something to do
  • and yes, there was the 3 am hotel party with my family***
  • i needle felted a fishy on the way over
  • my mom, sister, kenton, and i made an heb**** run before the reception to buy wine, only to be turned away by officers guarding the reception hall for bringing booze in
  • kenton got to meet lots and lots of my family! welcome to the craziness, love

*aww, realtionship firsts are so cute!
**my grandmother has given each of her granddaughters a string of pearls as a high school graduation gift. just this past may, the youngest graduated. this photo was a Big Deal.
anita: "how could you forget?? alicia, grandma had ALL the pearls in a safe deposit box in case she couldn't give them to us herself."
mom: "anita, do you really think that phases your sister?"
***brought to you by late-night tv, tequila, coconut rum, vending machine soda, nintendo ds, cell phone tetris, laptops, and valero snacks
****the men in san antonio have this most unappealing trait of leering at women. one of my favorite pasttimes while there is to return the rude stares of say something terribly unladylike to them. i gave some loser at heb a "fuck you and fuck off" look. my favorite san antonio sport!

i had about a million things i was going to blog but then i read alicia's music post and it was so nice and made me smile and not even feel like posting and instead just taking in the good feelings.

there are so many fun/sweet/fuckedup/loving memories that we share at times it is crazy to think that we have only been "together" for a year and a half. then on the other side it is crazy that we have been together so long because it really feels so amazing still and i still get all smiley thinking about her.

but that is sappy and not how i roll so lets get on with the randomness

well this morning (real morning, 8am style) I went to randalls and as I walked in two 3-5 year old kids chasing each other ran in front of me without a parent anywhere in sight. Then inside the randalls about four kids around the same age are wandering about in the bakery and by the baskets. again no parents in site. as i continued walking through the store i saw probably about 20 toddlers just perusing around and basically nobody else is in the store.

this leads me to the only reasonable conclusion:


In my early morning adventures I was also in the rice village area and went to the five and dime store. That place is amazing you can buy screwdrivers in the original packaging from the 50s and texas memorabilia and pretty much everything you really didn't want. but oh the variety! and you gotta love how the register is substantially larger than most mini-fridges and has all sorts of pull tabs and levers.

and now i'm home, i'm going to use physical force to coerce alicia to watch Sara Silverman: Jesus is Magic tonight.

and to add to the charming collection of Whitneyisms:

While driving home the other day I saw a man skateboarding down the middle of fairview as a hysterical crying woman with luggage tried to catch up.

really I think we just need a tabletop book for this stuff
