Meet Cleo, My Goldfish

"Would you like a fish?"
"I love fish. Of course I'd like a fish!"
"Here. Take good care of her. Don't flush her. Her name is Cleo."
This is precisely how the conversation went!
A customer came into our craft store around 9pm, offered me a fish, and then left.
Is it terrible that the fist question I asked a co-worker was:
"How long can a goldfish go without eating?"  
Scarf: Ben Franklin. Top & tights: Forever21. Shorts: Old Navy. Boots: Thrifted.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I hope your day is filled with good food, good plans, and great people.
I have so much to be thankful and grateful for.

Outfit post today! Coffee and flowers, no morning showers.

Yes, my dress possibly was a curtain at one point. The seamstress probably found out the material was much too comfy to be hugging a window, and thought it  to be more fitting for a human.  
Just so you know, it's nearly a sin for Norwegians to not have fresh brewed coffee on a Saturday morning. 
...Or is that just a Seattle thing?
Are you a coffee drinker? Did you start the day right with a cup or two?

I love days that include doughnuts on study breaks.
The best bakery in the world is roughly an hour North-East of Seattle 
(...about 2 minutes away from my abode).
If you're ever here, let me know.
I'd love to buy you a treat.

Old photos and po-police

Hello lovies! I do hope you've enjoyed your weekend.
Here's what happened to me:
I got pulled over for going 34 in a 25 zone. 
Just before the stroke of midnight on 11/11/11, too.
I handed the officer all 10 expired licensed registrations from my car because I didn't know what to give him. I also had my insurance card in the same area of the car. But I didn't give him it because I thought it was expired too. The next morning I realized it wasn't.
Long story short, I got a $550 ticket for not having my insurance card.
(But I had it..I just didn't know it.)
The following night: I worked till midnight.
Guess what happened? I was pulled over again. 
Do the cops have radars that are all out to get me?! I'm positive they do.
Thankfully, it was only a headlight that was out.
My dad's car when he was younger.
Isn't it darling? I would drive that in a heartbeat. 
And there he is at the World's Fair (Expo '86) in Canada.
Stash and all. It was the 80's, I guess that's a good excuse. 

Have you ever been pulled over?
Did you feel as silly as I did?

..Remember me?

A tad overdue, yes? Yes. 
So here's the deal, life's hectic. I'd love to tell you more, but we'll sum it up with:
No, I have not fallen off the face of the Earth.
No, you probably didn't even realize I haven't posted in over a month.
Yes, I just found out my math class this quarter counts as an elective.
[No..not the class I actually needed.]
Yes, coffee is what sustains me these days.
Yes, it's getting chillier every.single.second.
And no, I will not sleep nor will I be productive with my time.
..That seems to be a reoccurring practice as of late.
Yes, that needs to change.
Yes, that will change tomorrow.
Thanks for this venting session. I appreciate you.  
Just tasty. 
Even more-so in a pie mixed with peaches. 
One of the many reasons I love living in Washington. This champ and some others found berries in my back yard. 
 Another reason the Pacific Northwest is wonderful.

What have you all been up to?
Please fill me in, I'm terribly so out of it.
