Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

Tootie. She is the cutest little girl on the planet. She dances with everything she's got. She can eat a whole watermelon. She asks for hamburgers in the morning. I can learn a lot from her.

When it was time to paint nails she softly said 5 times "Can I do it myself?" and soon there was pink nail polish more on her toes rather than her nails, then on her hands, then her dress but she remained perfect.

Isn't it awesome that we can't fuck it up no matter how hard we try? Even if we paint outside of the lines.

There are 3 types of people in the Bay Area. The first being people who know and love Point Richmond. The second being the people who know of it but refuse to visit because of the Chevron oil factories and neighboring ghetto. Lastly, there are the people who don't know about it at all. I am of the first kind. It's a special little town and I love it dearly.

This Monday is their 17th annual Memorial Day sale! The whole town comes together to put on one huge yard sale. It's rad. I have always found treasures for good prices, but this year I will be selling instead of buying (or at least trying). I've been doing some major summer cleaning and have bags of clothes, decorations, misc items and furniture. If nothing sells, I'll just add it to the crackhead collection.

This spring was my first semester back in school since a million years ago and a million years ago the only thing I was serious about was getting my party on. One could say that back then I was getting my "life" education. After all this time, going back to school was both exciting and scary. I was looking forward to learning new things but I was also scared to learn that I was undeniably and uniquely stupid. Irreversibly dumb. Hopeless. Well, I was wrong. I'm not especially stupid or smart. I'm just me....and it's fun. Tonight I submitted my last assignment and the semester is officially over. I worked my ass off in all my classes and went from academic probation to straight A's.

My friend Kate

My friend Kate is awesome. She has started a blog called, The Styley, and as part of it she has also invented "My Styley Friend" in which she takes photos of her stylish friends in their stylish clothes and posts them on her stylish blog. A couple of weekends ago, I got to be her styley friend, we had a photo shoot and voila!!!

Aside from getting to spend the afternoon with my darling Kate, it was also fun for me to have my clothes documented. I love my clothes. I admittedly have a fun wardrobe. What can I say? Amelda Marcus' blood runs through my veins.You fancy huh?
