frushi + shoes, shoes, shoes, shoes, and shoes

finally went to Orange yesterday! their brunch is amazing! so is their orange coffee! I already know what I want to get the next time I go...either the omelette with smoked ham, caramelized pineapple, swiss cheese, and coconut flakes OR the omelette with bacon, sweet leeks, brie, and avocado mousse on top! MMMMMMMMMMM...I got tried the Chai Tea French Toast (chai tea-infused french toast, stuffed with ricotta cheese, served over a chai tea reduction, topped with honey and caramelized apples) and the
Frushi (one was cranberry sweet rice and pineapple and the other was sweet rice with coconut and strawberries)!
he tried eating my leftover Frushi!

the only downside was the fact we had decided to eat outside...not a good idea when it is windy and there is no sunlight! oh well...

I also went into AKIRA last week. I was having a bad day, nothing a bit of retail therapy couldn't cure though. Oh, and by a "bit" I actually mean five pairs of shoes...(it was buy 2 get 3 free!!!)

since feeling is first

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;

wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don't cry
- the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids' flutter which says

we are for each other; then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life's not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

free day

I decided against staying inside to edit some work and also somehow convinced a few friends to skip class too so we headed to the park and played. the weather was amazing. we munched on some generic samoas. and everyone wore blue (I must have not gotten the memo).

why can't the weather be like this all the time? I talk about the weather too much. I can't help it though. it dictates my mood. like tomorrow...it's supposed to be 58 degrees. ugh...
