I know it’s Friday. I’m a day behind. But better late than never, right? Also, I’ve included some of my other friends’ lists, too.
I’m channeling my older self today, past lives. I am counting on the nostalgia I just recently wrote about. Remembering what it is that I love, because it feels like this week I’ve forgotten. So all of these things might be repeats, but that’s okay. It’s good to remind yourself of things you love.
Pushing Daisies, the pie maker
All night movie marathons
Watching Gilmore Girls on ABC Family, wishing for a Stars Hollow type of world
Themed parties in my back yard

Similarly, seeing movies at midnight

Going through photographs.
Movies. Especially right now: Under the Tuscan Sun, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (1 & 1) and Eat, Pray, Love.
Adding movies to a Netflix queue.
Spring. Flowers. Gardens. Butterflies.
Randomly quoting Harry Potter (and any other movies) in my head. “Why couldn’t it be follow the butterflies?”
A sense of community. Hanson concerts. Livejournal communities (back when I was active over there).
Creating characters and looking for them in real life.
All of the friends I’ve ever had, the people in my life who have been there for good times and bad times, the ones who were fleeting characters in the cast of my life and the ones I’ve known since Kindergarten and before.
Google messenger & video chat dates.
Perusing photographs of other countries.
Dreaming and concocting ways to think big and makes those dreams real.
All of my attempts at losing weight, even though they’ve always failed.
My bike and riding it in the summer.
Jumping into pools, splashing in ponds and jumping over waves in the ocean.
Sonoma, California, San Francisco, LA, the 101, In N Out Burger

e-mails from Olga describing me, “lately ive been thinking about individuals in my life and how i would describe them to others. i guess the way i’d describe you is like a freshly made cupcake. you are bright and delightful to look at, you are soft and full of feelings that make me thing of pastel colors like pink, lavender, and mint green. a moment with you is pretty much how id feel if carebears really existed. i’d call you “feel bear” because everything with you is larger than life as it should be.”

Penny Rose’s “Things I Fancy Friday”
Baking cupcakes and even coming up with my own recipe for raspberry lemonade cupcakes!
Beautiful curvy women – this may need a side note. After visiting family I have realized once again how much stress people put on being thin. I do it too and I’m not even sure why because I don’t think incredibly skinny women are beautiful. Curvy thick women are very attractive. We can be plus size and beautiful and I would like to have words with anyone who says other wise.
Martinis – especially pretty colored ones that have a fruity taste! How classy!
Best friends who have your back – its really nice to know that no one can talk shit about you and get away with it because you have people who love you who wont let that happen.
Romantic comedies – its like a sickness… I have to like them even though it’s the same story over and over again. They just make you long for love and hand holding
Johnny Galecki/Leonard Hofstadter – huge character crush going on over here…
Fresh fruit that is in season
Confirmation that my oil has been shipped
My great grandmothers 103rd birthday!
Believing in magic
Wasting time with online tarot card reading
Pay day and not being broke!
Birthday planning – oh yes, Courtnie is having a birthday and its going to be the shit… be there or be square bitches
What do you love today?
