Colour Me Silly. Jon Burgerman
I spent the final days of my summer vacation at a crazy-lovely lake house in North Carolina with some of the craziest-loveliest people I’ve met in quite a while. In the weeks leading up to our arrival, the man of the lake house sent out these awesome pre-trip emails and I’m inclined to say that this one was my personal favorite:
The flights are booked. The van is rented. The boat is tuned and the giant snakes that live under the boathouse are fed. Less than 3 weeks until Lake Lure! This year I am asking everyone to bring one special item. This could be a playlist, mix CD, drink, food recipe, game, movie, one-man play, troupe of acrobatic monkeys (though they may not get along with the snakes)…anything you think that will add to the fun (extra points for creativity).
Since my insider @ weather.com tipped me off to at least one day of rainytimes, I decided to bring a a Ziplock bag full of paint brushes, a set of 16 Crayola Educational Watercolors, and Colour Me Silly by Jon Burgerman (pictured above). I’m still waiting to hear back on my extra creativity points.

As I was walking back to my apartment from the gym this morning (feeling awesome, obvs), I wondered if just by living in the city you’re automatically a little smarter because you end up using at least 10% more of your brain power just to fucking cross the street. I mean, I keep my iPod pumped up to 11 and look both ways for pedestrians, bikers, cars, pigeons, signaling taxis, non-signaling taxis, leashed dogs, non-leashed dogs, hidden poop traps, et al in a matter of seconds just so I can be sure some bullshit traffic signal isn’t telling me how to live my life. I’m a grown ass woman, cross traffic green light. Leave me alone! I hate you! DOOR SLAM. Okay. Wow. That felt good.
I think [like a new yorker] therefore I am [a little smarter, quick to anger]?
Also, I’m broke.
Please send money.
