Week 10 - July 24

Summary: Slim pickings today, but I was on a mission. My job was to find something AMAZING for my new BFF enjoiElise. Our entire friendship is premised on the assumption that I will teach her to spell "enjoy" properly one day. Oh, and that I procure her WICKED items at garage sales. (Since she is busy selling shirts with tassles to cowboys at the mall on weekends, she must garage sail vicariously through me).


AUG. 19 | Mouse. It's what's for lunch.

In summary, he is a cat.

You just never had a chance. I'm sorry ...

On Wednesday I went to the Calgary Zoo for the first time since I was, like, 12. The only thing I remember about the Calgary Zoo from when I was a kid was this record that we got with a song about the newborn elephant, which my sisters, brother and I can all sing to this day.

"Chandra the zoo's baby elephant, born in the mammal house right in her element, born here in Calgary and that's really relavent, 'cause that makes her an honorary, Calga-rary resident ... Chandraaaaaaaa ..."
