Support Love

 I am pro love. I love love. I love new love, old love. I love it all. 
 I don't care if you are gay or straight. I only care about love. 
These ladies love their love. And they show it. Be proud of your love and show it.

Frozen drink on a stick

Sure is hot out there and it  is only in the 80's. Not sure how I will survive the rest of the hot summer! Sure is better than the cold winters.
 I will start by eating lots of Popsicle and ice cream. I need to buy the fixins for ice cream. Mint perhaps? 

Did you know that Popsicle, Creamsicle  and Fudgsicle are all frozen desserts with registered trademarks of Unilever. 
 Eat me? Don't mind if I do.

Caught up in pride

 Pride is best served at room temperature. 

 "Pride"observed Mary, who piqued herself upon the solidity of her reflections, "is a very common failing, I believe. By all that I have ever read, I am convinced that it is very common indeed; that human nature is particularly prone to it, and that there are very few of us who do not cherish a feeling of self-complacency on the score of some quality or other, real or imaginary. Vanity a pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us."
-Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

A love for coffee

There was a time when I did not like coffee. Diner coffee was all I had. Nothing to write home about. 
Nothing to make embroidery over.
 And then pour over coffee came into my life. My life was changed. Nights of staying up became easier. I had caffeine in the form of coffee. How delicious. 

 I love my neighborhood. Dark Matter coffee is almost across the street. I can smell when they are roasting coffee. I get that good stuff. Fresh. 
 I love it so much embroidery was made over it.

They loved the embroidery so much and coffee was had.

Team Darcy

I prefer the 1995 tv mini series with Colin Firth as my Mr Darcy. 

 Dearest, loveliest Elizabeth.
Oh how it makes my heart pitter patter.

Reading Rainbow

Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge. 
 On Star Trek: The Next Generation Geordi wears a visor that allows him to see things at an infrared levels. In real life the visor made it nearly impossible to see, leaving Geordi blind! 
 I prefer Reading Rainbow over Star Trek. I will assume my love for books was because of LeVar Burton. I can clearly remember the episode where he talks about Star Trek and his visor. 

 Dat visor. 
In the words of LeVar Burton "I'll see you next time."

Under Pressure

David Bowie and his sixth album Aladdin Sane. I listen to all of his albums on repeat as a kid. On vinyl. 

 I thought I was so cool. I may have painted my face red and blue. 

Or danced around in my underoos singing along with David Bowie late at night while everyone sleeps. I still might do this.
 My favorite David Bowie persona is from the Labyrinth. I watched the film for the first time in art class in high school. I think I was in 10th grade. 
He makes good wall art now.

Uncle Fun

 Uncle Fun is a known place in Chicago. You can spend hours in there just laughing at the novelty of everything. A clown coloring book with a clown spewing out stars. They've got it. 
 Try on this mask to scare your friends And bring 'em here to the Circus again! The End. 
What a silly way to end a coloring book. 

There are drawers filled with stuff. Stuff and more stuff. There is no better way to describe it. 
 Each with its own cute label. Slippers, babies &Bill Cosby. OhMy! 

 If you are ever in a bad mood you will seriously leave smiling.

Rabbit or Armadillo

A friend believes that it is an armadillo. I'll let him believe. I think he's a rabbit.
Humans can contact Leprosy from handling the meat or shell of infected armadillos.
Only the three banded armadillo is able to roll up the others have too many bands to be able to roll up!
I still want an armadillo shell. 
And I still think he's a rabbit.
