Hi again bloggy tumblr world, it is I, your flakey and lazy friend, Kelsey. Remember me? No? Well I don’t blame you it’s been like 10 months since I’ve posted anything of qual- well anything on here. Now normally I would make some sweeping proclamation full of lovely promises right about now, Telling all my lovely readers ( I think there are about six of you) how I will be posting at some regular rate here. Not this time pally pals. No, no. I’ve learned a lot these past 10 months (ok mostly just that I’m rubbish at keeping promises). So I declare that I will post things of seemingly average wit and ha ha’s here on …days…in future times. There new year’s resolution : no specificity = no disappointment.

Did you hear about that terrible fire in a club in Rio de Janeiro? It killed over 200 people! There is absolutely nothing funny about this and it is extremely sad and tragic. However, I have a sick and twisted mind and I instantly thought of three different jokes involving rap songs with the words “club” and “fire” in them when I heard about this. I saw an opportunity and I took it. Sort of like when someone is like “Here, Sugar fein, hold my delicious, warm, ooey gooey chocolate chip cookie and keep it safe while I disappear for 15 minutes.” Well obviously I will hold it and keep it safe and warm… in my tummy. Thats how it works. I only have so much self-restraint. Okay zero. I have zero self restraint.
In other news, I had a wildlife encounter yesterday on my front porch. I came home around midnight and was looking at my phone while I was walking up to my door and I heard a weird sound and looked up and raccoon. I swear for a second I was like “Damn. If I just had some crackers Meeko loved crackers.” And then the giant-non-Meeko-raccoon looked me straight in the eye and screamed. My only verbal response was “Nooo.” I flung my water bottle and sprinted back to my car, where I sat for 10 minutes waiting for my fluffy friend to make his leisurely exit.
My brother turned 18 today.
Things I like today:
Toro y Moi’s new album.
My sister’s birthday.
This panoramic of LA’s skyline I took from the rooftop bar at the Perch
Yummy homemade food.
There are few things more joyous than braving the crowds during the holidays and heading to your local mall. And by joyous I do mean terrifying. I cant think of a more effective birth control then watching overstimulated, sugar riddled, screaming children melt to the floor or knock over every shoe display in sight. I can only assume that this is what they think will persuade their parents into dropping a ridiculous amount of cash on some gadget that will lie forgotten under their bed two days after Christmas. And they’re probably right.
Delightful as children screaming over toys may be I can think of another scenario that prominently features screaming children and the spirit of the Holidays. Every year parents force their kids into their most itchy and uncomfortable clothing and into line behind hundreds of others to capture the magical moment when they will sit on a stranger’s polyester-clad lap and tell him their most desired wish. This magical moment normally ends up looking something like this:
I feel like the parents in this situation definitely overlooked the fact that this particular Santa looks like he’s had a few priors/ is coked out of his mind.
Gymnastics reference? Not exactly. I just suck at sticking to what I say I am going to do. So it turns out blogging every week day is a huge commitment and instead of producing quality posts it ends up being a major load of waffle. So… new proposition: blog two days a week. They’re going to be kinda random at first because I don’t start school again for another month, which in turn means I’m trying to do a lot of fun activities that I cant do once school starts. Essentially the posts will be scattered throughout the week, but there will always be two! Part duex of le proposition: I am going to include photos of my adventures! I eventually hope to get a Vlog up and running but that entails having/buying a massive amount of equipment, for which my meager college-student budget does not currently allow. So for the present we will all have to make do with photos and good ole fashioned bloggy fun. Thanks for your patience in this trial and error blog adventure!
one for the road:
I call this one weirdfacehaircut. Profound, no?
Nailed 2012. Watch out 2013
Last few days I have been terrible about posting! I had the flu and I was just not in the mood to use my brain, but I promise to be better!
Here’s a wrap up of the last few days:
Wednesday night was a night of wonderful decisions exhibit A: Tequila.

Weirdly enough I had the flu for the next 48 hrs. I also stayed in my pajamas and watched an obscene amount of television over the next 48 hrs.
Finally left my cocoon on Saturday to sneeze on everyone at work. By Sunday I was a normally functioning human again (well as normal as I ever am). Went on a hike
ate yummy Italian food and later yummy persian food and laughed with friends.
Yesterday I managed to burn my hand, tongue and leg all with the same cup of coffee. Had a great time with my friends on NYE. Ate my last In-N-Out burger before my Annual-pretend-I’m-going-to-stick-to-this-new-years-resolution-diet-but-really-only-do-it-for-2-weeks-diet.
Today I ate breakfast, upheld the time honored tradition of drinking hot cocoa while watching the Rose Parade. Ate second breakfast (yes, I am a hobbit, don’t be fooled by my giant-like stature). Watched some football cause this is merrrica after all. And now off to Pho with the pals.
Happy New Year Everyone!
