squeeze the air and keep the rest out

headed over to the huntington library this afternoon to take advantage of free admission, walk around, take pictures, and admire cherry (or are they?) blossoms.

it's been a year since i last went, so it was fun!











i also tracked down some girl scout cookies. samoas (or caramel delights, or whatever they're called now) and lemon chalet creme. i would've gotten thin mints but i'm still recovering from peppermint joe joes and didn't want something minty. however, i'm sure i will pick up a box before the season ends, because i think thin mints are the BEST of the bunch! (a certain someone begs to differ, though).
for the ♥ of samoas

'twas a good day.

so celeste tagged me to list seven random facts about myself, so here goes:
- i went to japanese school every saturday for nine years. it meant that i couldn't do fun activities on saturdays, or have go to sleepovers on friday nights. plus, i had additional "j-school" homework. i hated it. i'm still bitter about it.
- i sometimes buy clothes in the kids' department. hey, i'm tiny. i like buying jeans there because they're shorter (and cheaper).
- i really wanted to be a horse jockey when i was, like 10. actually, i was really into thoroughbread racing when i was growing up, because my dad followed it. my cousins like to reminisce that when i was 3, i liked to yell out "and away they go" and pretend to be on a horse.
- i cry like a baby every time i chop onions. it's a huge problem everytime i make FOS (french onion soup). ugh.
- i'm a lefty. no one in my immediate family is a lefty, so everyone thinks i'm an anomaly. they also tried to switch me in japanese school (since japanese writing goes right to left, and therefore being righty is easier), but i eventually went back to being lefty.
- i am currently craving mexican food. yep.
- right now, i'm obsessed with eating ritz crackers with strawberry cream cheese. my favorite snack at the moment (yes, i realized that half of these facts are food-related).

i'm supposed to tag 7 people: linda, jamie, nik, nic, davinie, ali, hillary.

phew.
tomorrow i see them. yep. again.

have a good one :)
