little notes

i dare you to take a nap to this playlist and tell me it's not the most relaxing thing you've ever experienced. you can't.

dear self,
you start working for the sundance film festival tomorrow. "this is it, don't get scared now."

dear husband,
so very happy that you are back home from another daunting interview that takes you away from me. i'm starting to really not like those anymore. and it just shows how utterly lost i am without you.

dear twitter,
you have the world under your spell. now no one can escape the hashtag madness. many of which don't even make sense.
real examples follow:
facebook: "reunited!! #anditfeelssogood"
pinterest: "future engagement photo #someday"
text message: "hope your night was fabulous my love!! #NYE"
instagram: "#flashbackfriday, #janphotoaday, #sundance, #staywarm, #dog, #rockchalk, #mint, #yum"
...you get the picture.

dear readers,
i have two more medium ad spaces open for the month of February. information can be found here. email me if interested!

dear alanis morissette,
i've had you on repeat all weekend long. i hope this doesn't mean i have angst inside of me. i just like your twangy voice.

dear pasta,
your about all i have inhaled for the past week. i can feel your carbiness cloggy my heart as we speak. nice.

dear Tylenol,
you've kept me a float for the past few days. please migraines, go away. at least until this crazy month is over. you are making it quite difficult to concentrate, or get anything done for that matter.

dear world renowned scientists from around the world,
why have you not yet invented teleportation? this would make my life so much easier. and i'm pretty sure that would be something worth investing in other than flying cars. just a thought.

dear revenge (the tv show, not the mood),
i have recently become addicted to you. mostly because i just adore emily vancamp ever since the tv show, everwood. but your last episode had me on pins and needles. can't wait to see what else you bring!

dear picnik,
say it ain't so. i've enjoyed your blessed free features for years now. what will i ever do without you? is it something i did? did i abuse you too much? i promise, i'll change if you just come back to me!

  3. enjoy the sundance film festival. that was one of my favorite times of the year when we lived in utah. so...is revenge all that good? i've been wanting to watch it, but doubt i can convince my husband to sit through it.

  4. Although I don't have a twitter and refuse to cave to the twitter-sphere (even to promote my blog) I have to admit, I've begun using hashtags in my fb status' and blog posts... fail :/

  10. twitter is taking over everything although I am trying to keep in control and not hashtag on other forms of social media--but I think it is a slippery slope which I am going to slide down in style!

    And the loss of picnik is sad--what am i going to use now?

    Oh and migraines such--I suffer from them too--hope they disappear!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love these posts you do. So funny! Picnik is no longer going to be free? How will my many drab photos became bright and fabulous (almost fabulous). Such a bummer.

  12. Hope your migraines went away! That is just the worst!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I emailed you about ad space... perhaps it did not get to you??

    ReplyDelete
  14. Everwood! I didn't think anyone else watched that show besides me haha. I was one of my favorites!
    I love Revenge too! I can't wait to see this weeks episode.

    ReplyDelete
  15. That sounds so exciting to work at the Sundance Film Festival!

    It seems like I see hashtags everywhere now too!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm guilty of the hashtag use on Facebook (it's addictive)and I cannot miss an episode of Revenge!

  19. You have the same relationship with pasta as me I see. And the scientists, as well!

    AND.. I LOVE this playlist. I have a "sleepy time mix" on my ipod, and definitely adding these to it. I love Iron & Wine.

  32. Love your little notes, and yes the news about picnik, terrible. What to do? How do we survive? I don't know.

    ReplyDelete
  33. "this is it, don't get scared now." - i know i know! HOME ALONE!

    I hope you see lots and lots of movie stars at Sundance - take pictures!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I second the teleportation thing. I've been waiting for it...well, forever! They need to GET ON IT! haha!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I must be out of the loop becasue I haven't seen Revenge yet. The hashtag invasion always gets me. Especially on Facebook where it doesn't have the slightest relevance. But anyways...hope everything goes well for you at Sundance!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. can i sign my name at the bottom of your picnik letter? i about died when i found out they were shutting down. that website has been my go-to for sooo many things for so many years. i really did have a mini panic attack when i heard the news. if you find a good replacement site i beg you to let me in on it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm totally listening to this playlist at work today :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Tomorrow is such a big and exciting day! I am so happy for you! Ahh I love Revenge too..tonight!! :) Picnik is so mean...I'm mad at it.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Eeek i'm so excited for you!!! sundance is AMAZING! I might just copy your idea on this post! i'll make sure to link your blog up to it :) And thanks for the playlist....heaven in the form of music.

    I'm super bummed about picnik. I better touch up on photoshop.
    Good luck with Sundance!!

  41. I want to hear more about Sundance, sounds like a very cool job. I am making pasta tonight, also spaghetti squash for me. You know, cause it's healthier and all.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I literally played this songs you shared while working online. Refreshing to the mind. thanks a lot. :)

    and as for saying goodbye to piknik, it is SO sad! but i totally recommend downloading Paint.Net,weird, it sounds like a site, but it's a free photo editing progam you get at www.download.com and it is uh-mazing! i have used it all throughout photography school!

    hahahaha. Loving this. All of this.

  49. We have VERY similar tastes in music! :D

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh a pasta obsession I know too much about!
    Dear pasta: I love you!

    :) Amy

    ReplyDelete
  51. 1. I'm mad about picnik too!

    2. I haven't even pushed play yet but I can tell your playlist is amazing! #wesohavethesametasteinmusic

    3. EVERWOOD. I was totally obsessed with that show in high school.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Don't be scared; you're going to do great! I loved Everwood and I love Revenge too. I love how she looks so sweet but is so mean. Since it's a TV show and not real life. I don't like meanness in real life.

    ReplyDelete
  53. uh, that playlist is music to my ears...literally. good stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Ohh, sending good vibes your way for tomorrow! Sounds so exciting. =)

    And listen, I can put away some pasta- I would probably eat it for every meal if Nate didn't have something to say about it! I can't wait to give this little playlist a listen (when there isn't sports noise in the background!) ...

  55. i am on the same page as you when it comes to pasta, picnik, hashtags and teleportation <---- i wouldn't be surprised if it isn't invented and "they're" hiding it from us! ; )

    ReplyDelete
  56. thank you a bugillion times for this playlist. i needed this today.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Ummm totally with you on the whole pasta thing. We never do it for dinner--but we've eaten it already at least twice. We can all die together of diabetes :)
    And my husband's been gone a lot too recently. It's his company's big-deal week and I feel pathetic that I literally don't get ready for the day until he comes home. I'm desperate for my lover ;)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Really nice play list. I haven't even heard of some of the artists before, so thanks for sharing ^^

    THEN I couldn't read anymore since I was so caught up with the fact that you're working at Sundance festival!? So cool.. I study cultural management, which is basically all things related to organizing events or working in a museum - all things art & culture really, depending on your own interests. :) Wow, so this was special news for me - and I'm also SUPER jealous. Sounds like a perfect place to do internship or something, too.. I've done some work at music/rock festivals here. :)

  59. oh, i can just tell that i will love that playlists just by the artists! & mmm pasta!!! so bad, but so, so good!!! i have been so good and sticking to whole grains - quinoa, blah, blah, blah - but last night i HAD to give in and eat a BIG bowl of bolognese...and while I was at it, I had the bread, too! XO brynn

  60. you know me all too well. this post was exactly what i needed yesterday. first, i was super sleepy at school and i listened to that playlist. needless to say, i think i took a five minute nap during my little break and i was woken up by my friend sitting next to me saying that i was going to be late to class. secondly, i read this again later and i was dying of laughter...especially over the hashtag madness. one of my friends and i always send each other texts that are solely words with hashtags in front...example #want2go2amovie #questionmark. i'm glad we're not the only weirdos. :)
