thoughts to eat

June 20th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’m trying to eat less sugar and food in general for a minute, since SOMEONE, since their wedding, has decided to eat and drink everything in front of them and also sometimes everything in front of everyone next to them too. And so instead of consuming more than I need to, I will instead spend my lunch break thinking of and looking at pictures of cute / weird food things, like iPhone cases that look like crackers,

and cookies that look like iPhones.

GOSH I’M STUFFED.

sound picture

June 19th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Sometimes when I’m in a life moment,  listening to a certain song, and the life moment and the song are beautifully synced, like just now as I sit in my office  considering putting an offer on a house with my husband that I always hoped I’d meet some 16 years ago while driving around lost and alone listening to Dixie Chicks and then Dixie Chicks comes on my shuffle — I think to myself, I wish I could take a picture of sound. THEN I REMEMBER THAT ONE CAN IN FACT TAKE A PICTURE OF SOUND, IT’S IN FACT CALLED A RECORDING. Then I feel really deep and profound, then a little dumb, then a little lucky, then I close my eyes for just a second, hit record.

ten year blogiversary!

June 18th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Ten years ago, my very kind and very perceptive boyfriend at the time thought to make me a blog for my birthday. At first I was like, blog WHO? My first few posts were lost and misguided and rambly, at best. But then I started to realize what this blog could be, and then eventually, it became what it is: a reason for me to write something, literally anything, every day, a place for me to voice everything from feelings regarding dresses that look like pencils to gun violence, a place to store my memories (to the point where I think they really don’t get stored in my head anymore), and lastly, a very convenient way to keeps parents up to date on life things. I have since been writing on it every single day. There have been days where my commitment to posting something on it feels absurd, and more about box checking than anything else. I will leave significant life moments of human connection so that I might post something here. But still, I’m happy I’ve done it, every day, no matter what. It’s discipline, be it the narcissistic kind. It’s seen me through jobs and no jobs and new jobs and bad jobs and great jobs, boys I have and don’t want and boys I want an don’t have and boys I need but have never met, books I’ve half-read and books I’ve loved but since forgotten, trips I’ve tripped and trips I haven’t, feelings felt and words thunk and questions raised. And now I have them all here forever.  I have a weird hope that I someday have a great grandkid who stumbles upon this blog when finding themselves freshman year of college. They find it wherever internet artifacts are kept. Boxes that float? They find this blog and they read all the years of it and turn it into a performance piece, having learned that their great great something did something with ….plays? And so suddenly, they find themselves making one. And so here’s to ten more years of content, of thoughts and pictures of cakes and shoes, of a soul that can be scrolled through.

Niblings!

June 16th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

My sister in law informed the whole family via text this morning of a new word, nibling. Just roll that around in your mouth for a minute. NIBLING. It’s  a gender neutral word that refers to nieces and nephews.  I mean. Is there any other word on the planet that is more befitting of this little nibling?!

I SAY THERE IS NOT.

The real cupcake wars 

June 13th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

If you want to witness one of the great tragicomedies of American culture, just visit any sort of office on any of its workers’ birthdays. On this loathed and sacred day, someone nice brings cupcakes, everyone sort of awkwardly sings, and then everyone sits around pretending like they’re not going to eat the cupcakes and talking about how they’re not going to eat the cupcakes, and then either giving in and eating them or staring at them hatefully while others eat them or shoving gum into their mouths so as to not eat them, or sometimes even — eating them proudly and with abandon. My co-worker Vera and I have birthdays two days apart, and because we are deeply aware of the feelings of our co-workers, we combined our cupcakes days into one. Perhaps every office should select one day of the year and just call it Birthday, and every person in the office can face-dive into vats of butter cream then take a group nap, as opposed to spreading the self restraint / gluttony bit by bit over the calendar.

the names of Boats

June 12th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

At the request of Mrs. Foster Keddie, Mr. Foster Keddie took Mrs. Foster Keddie up to Santa Barbara for the weekend before her birthday,  so that Mrs. Foster Keddie might indulge in one of her favorite things, which is drinking wine by a pool while also looking at an ocean. After a few hours of this, Mr. and Mrs. Foster Keddie took a stroll up a pristine beach towards plates of carbohydrates, past rows of boats with names like ‘Truth’ and and ‘Conception.’ When asked by Mr. Foster Keddie what she might name a boat if she had it, Mrs. Foster Keddie replied “…Float box” to which Mr. Foster Keddie laughed, remarking that he would in fact name his boat the very same.

LINE: CROSSED 

June 11th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Okay y’all. I am just as into the toddler chic vibe as the next girl. But this ad on Instagram now officially crosses all of the lines 

 

THIS IS CLOTHING FOR AN ACTUAL BABY BUT FOR AN ADULT. YOU COULD LITERALLY POOP YOURSELF IN THIS. Can we agree to maintain SOME dignity while also wearing Leggings with cupcakes on them? Like pair them with at least a grown up top?
