I'm in wuv. Item of wuv number one: my new car, Misty, so named after her unique color: Shoreline Mist. Apparently, J.Crew has become involved in the nomenclature of Honda car colors. An odd collaboration, to say the least, and one that ended in my questioning every car on the 101: are you Shoreline Mist?
Wuv object number two: the Star*. I've been jealous that he was spending time in my father's family's adopted motherland. And his arrival FOUR HOURS before I was expecting him threw me for a loop. But, he brought me a prezzie which earned my wuv and admiration (not that lending me his home and apartment for two weeks wasn't enough!) That's right, kids, he brought me a hammock. Over the years, I have talked about how perfect life would be with a hammock. This is one of the most spot-on presents I've ever received. (The other being an Origami-a-Day calendar.) And, he outdid himself by accompanying me on the car purchase thing, all the way to the East Bay.
Wuv is all around.
* The Star now officially knows that he makes the blog regularly. He was (I think) amused by his nickname, in particular because he bought a shirt with a big star on it during his travels.
