If you’re new to my blog, welcome! Here is an explanation of the tater tot post.
Last week, I came across this image on TikTok. It’s a behind-the-scenes photo of from the film The Breakfast Club. That’s John Hughes on the far left.
I discovered this at the grocery store last month:
It’s just a fancy water, and while I’m not usually impressed by fancy water, I was on an artist’s date with myself (damn you, Julia Cameron!), and it seemed appropriate.
Anyway, I noticed Liquid Death at the register and decided to buy it on the spur of the moment. Julia Cameron would want me to experience Liquid Death!
I had an epiphany while listening to Billy Idol, eating Whole Foods gummy stars (10 out of 10, highly recommend), and sipping my Liquid Death can of water: this can of water looks like a can of beer.
I look like I’m sipping a can of beer while driving.
At three o’clock in the afternoon.
On a Monday.
It felt liberating.
Go, get yourself some Schlitz, I mean Liquid Death.
Last week, I made caramelized bananas to put on my oatmeal, and it was the ideal way to give February middle finger. See you next year, a-hole.
I indicated in January that I wanted to rediscover my childhood sticker obsession. However, I’ve had difficulty finding stickers at local retailers.
Then, while perusing through social media, OKAY IT WAS TIKTOK AGAIN, I came upon a small business that makes magical stickers.
I think I spent almost $30 on stickers.
If you’re reading this, Mike, please keep scrolling. Nothing to see here.
Go to Jem and Cozy’s Etsy shop and buy all the stickers.

What I’m listening to
This month I learned about brown noise. Have you ever heard of it? White noise has always been too loud for me, which is why I’ve used a fan instead. But brown noise is so much better for me.
Give it a listen.
What I’m watching
Better Things is by far the best show I’ve ever seen. The final season premiers today, and if you haven’t already, begin with season one. Rita, thank you for introducing me to this show. My oldest daughter and I binge-watched it at the start of the pandemic, and it saved our lives:
