TGed with my boyfriend’s entire and entirely marvelous family and LIVED TO TELL THE TALE. The Foster-Keddies know how to throw down like big kids.
Home Alone Dinvie (Dinner movie? This is now a word) complete with Pizza Eating Contest and boozy milkshakes:
I am the luckiest, thankfullest, grownupish Bekah there ever was.

Today, on I could get Used to This, Morrison’s brother and his lovely girlfriend have a Tshirt company, Buy me Brunch, and today, they pulled out bins and bins of the softest gray and black sweatshirts and T shirts you ever did feel, and we pillaged them, and if you are reading this, you are probably getting one for Christmas and they are the MOST SOFT and you just sort of curl up inside of it and then I fell asleep inside of my new hoodie and also this run on sentence.
If you’re wondering what’s happening behind these paid professional models who get paid to wear things professionally, for money, it is this genius wall:

So far, there have been many marvelous things about my time in Austin with the Foster Keddies, but top of the list: M’s brother works with vintage Tshirts and slogans and logos and things, and so he has a COMPLETE COLLECTION OF JCPENNEY SEASONAL CATALOGUES FROM THE 70s and 80s, which is the me equivalent of piles and piles of cash money funtimes gold, and then I forgot my social skills and looked at them for 10 hours.

Last night when the unfortunate Darren Wilson verdict was determined was, among many things, a fascinating study of Facebook: 90% of Facebook was rage against the verdict, 5% was LOOK AT THIS PUPPY and SHOULD I GET THIS PHONE and COME SEE MY PLAY and then 5% was rage against the people who were NOT posting about the verdict. We are meant to care. We should care. Of course it matters. But has Facebook become a place where we must PROVE that we care? Shout through our fingers that we care? If that is the case, then I am a fairly one note, shallow person obsessed with volcanoes and pictures of my friends and the things that I write. Is this true, or do I just keep the things that enrage me in a separate place? Also, there is this tendency in me to not want to express rage when I don’t feel like I know the entirety of a situation. And how, I mean really HOW, do we ever really know ANYTHING? Is that a Cop out, or the truth? But no, really, I can’t believe it’s at the point that #blacklivesmatter is a thing right now, that that must be said. Really? LIVES Matter. LIVES. All of the lives. All of them. This is sad. That we need that reminder at all. Rage OUT.

Instead of raging against and hating on this food poisoning, I will instead say THANK YOU, perfectly timed pre- Thanksgiving food poisoning, for ensuring that I am 100% empty so that I can thoroughly fill myself with ALL OF THE STUFFING IN TEXAS come Thursday. THANKSPOISONING!

From like 1992-2000, EVERY CHRISTMAS, I made my grandparents a calendar, marked with the birthdays of all of their kids and grandkids, and most importantly, with drawings for each month. I remember making them with the same determined mania and obsessive multi-tasking that I currently still live and work by. I remember neglecting friends or friend, and sitting in my room, determined and drawing, or putting on the finishing touches as we drove up to Maryland for Thanksgiving, where I would always deliver them. They just sent them to me for safe-keeping which made me A.) happy to have and touch and laugh at them and B.) sad because it was a soft reminder of their impending mortality. I’ve decided to present some of the highlights here, month by month. First up, naturally, NOVEMBERS! in which my dark comedic impulses start to THRIVE:

I also have a very sweet and wonderful man friend who has been plying me with Gatorade and laughing at me affectionately when I declare with great authority that I’m pretty sure I have Ebola. I can’t so much move or eat, but I CAN BLOG. THIS TOOK ME 47 MINUTES TO WRITE BUT WELL, HERE IT IS. Insert profound thing about how sometimes our bodies force us to slow down. Okay we good? Great!
