New Zealand

Tocco asked me Friday morning if I wanted to move to New Zealand for a year so he can teach design at the University there. I can't say I haven't thought about it any less than 75% of the time since.  What's up with that.


You'll visit, right?

I rule at washing

Exhibit A                                                                    Exhibit B

On the left is the fitted sheet after it completely ate everything else that was in the wash with it (probably including jeans). And the right, my attempt at using bleach. Both had me laughing. That is all.

I knew there was something about today


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Watch out for the full Moon on the 9th of September, because it’s likely to knock you on your beautiful derrier, Sag. This will be an excellent time to set free whatever you’ve been dragging along with you, so don’t be scared of loss, dear one. The pain of letting someone or something go is far better than the pain of holding on and letting it get worse because you were to scared to do what had to be done. If you cling to what you should be releasing, you’ll find the week of the 20th a particularly grueling time. The thing is that you’ve got to feel okay in your own skin, Sag, otherwise your days will just kind of suck. There are a number of ways that the stars are testing your commitment to having a life that feels awesome, versus one in which you satisfy your impulses, but doesn’t make you happy. You don’t need to have it all figured out, but you do need to honor what you already know by prioritizing it, even if it bums you or others out. There’s a huge difference between being a selfish jerk and doing what a girl’s gotta do, and the distinction is in your motives. Play fair instead of playing nice; go for compassion instead of diplomacy. Mid-month Mars crosses over into your solar sign and anything goes, my friend. Be pro-active, but again,  don’t make any big decisions impulsively. You’re moving through such deep terrain you may find that you change your mind pretty quickly. Sit with your instincts before you make a call and you may be surprised at what happens; stay open to it all, Sag. via

The Yellow Kite

Tocco won a bet against me (what the heck!) and got a kitesurfing photo shoot as a result. Good for you T-dog, you deserve it.  The photos aren't behaving and won't stay where I put them, so they're out of order, but no biggie. You can see T in all of his glory in any order. When you do look at these, know that you are seeing this man doing his favorite things pretty much EVER in the world: kitesurfing, hanging out with his girl, watching the sunset, vodka-lemonading, talking to all kinds of other surfers, being at the beach. Behold:
