the weekend was straight up insane. friday was spent making an absurd amount of jello shots for a good friend's graduation party the next night. of course, as i was happily converting our kitchen into a liquor and gelatin covered chemistry lab, the BF's mother called.
BF's mom: hi honey! what are you up to? me: uh...making jello shots. ...what are YOU doing??
she was not making jello shots. hopefully this doesn't permanently damage my standing with them. but. if there's one life lesson i've learned, it is this: one never lies to mothers. BECAUSE THEY ALWAYS KNOW.
my brother and i have discussed this many times. my mother can sense a disturbance in the force, and there really is no use trying to lie to her. like the time she called after i'd received my first bonus from work, approximately a million years ago.
my mother: hi bao-bei. how are you doing? anything new? me: no...nothing new at all. my mother: really? nothing? me: no. nothing. OK FINE I JUST BOUGHT A MOTORCYCLE. my mother: HAH I KNEW IT. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??
but i digress.
saturday started way earlier than was sensible. we went to the farmer's market and then to a craft fair called craftstravaganza in st. paul. it was amazing. i was so excited i was incoherently just throwing money at people in exchange for cute things. the second half of the day started with some mild head trauma (my bedroom door frame decided to fall on top of me) and ended with us getting kicked out of the aforementioned graduation party that night. these things happen. all in all, a pretty awesome time.
anyway, one of my favorite vendors at craftstravaganza was keli of colette paperie. she had the best cards ever. as we were chatting, she mentioned that she should really have a category called "drinking," since a lot of her cards dealt with drinking. or more specifically, the aftermath of drinking. WHAT A GOOD IDEA. seriously. not only is it a new usage occasion, it brings in new consumers to the category: guys. it is sheer brilliance.
so i went home and made some.
look, it happens to all of us.
and, if your degeneracy is more creative than i am:
fill in the blank!
ok hope everyone had a great week, full of safe travels and lots of food. and that's it kbye.
